Josh’s Lifelog for 2009-10-21

  • I love how Apple doesn't need an event, or a marketing campaign to hype new products. They just take their site down for a couple hours. πŸ™‚ #
  • I *so* want the new Apple Magic Mouse. The whole top is a multitouch surface. Nice. http://www.apple.com/magicmouse/ #
  • @harrisja I get cables from PCHCables.com. An HDMI cable is maybe $5. They're out here in Hillsboro (right across the street from me :-). in reply to harrisja #
  • I did a blog post 3 years ago on how to fix your Apple Mouse when scrolling quits. It *still* gets a few comments per week. (up to 222!) #
  • The most commented-upon blog post I've ever written: "Apple Mighty Mouse Won't Scroll Down" http://bit.ly/m0Xsd #
  • The mere fact I won't have to clean out the little Mighty Mouse scroll ball anymore is enough to make me want the new Apple Magic Mouse. πŸ™‚ #
  • So, the Barnes&Noble Nook ebook reader. Who's got specific information on what file formats it supports (besides PDF)? Can't find it… #
  • @aaroneiche What about the Nook interests you above the Kindle (or the Sony Reader)? Just curious. in reply to aaroneiche #
  • @infomofo Got a link? No Nook support for TXT, HTML, RDF, or MOBI? Hmm. Seems like an advantage for the Kindle, there. #
  • A question about the Nook: how the heck do you enter text? I don't see any interface on it besides the page turning buttons and touchscreen. #
  • RT @isntv: Live Now: Visualize This! Today's guest? Drew Sikora (@dsikora), Executive Producer at GameDev.net. Come watch! http://j.mp/isntv #
  • @AiGameDev We're working to build our viewership for our live shows. This time slot is hard for non-US folks, and our audience is global. in reply to AiGameDev #
  • @AiGameDev The vast majority of @isntv's show views come after the fact. Most people place/time shift, to watch the shows when they want. πŸ™‚ in reply to AiGameDev #
  • What's with the Facebook spam today? I'm getting flooded with friend requests and "Check out my Photos" emails. *grump* #
  • @marusin Me too! Tweetie 2 almost instantly trained my brain that tugging at the top of the screen=refresh. I even do it on my Mac now! πŸ™‚ in reply to marusin #
  • @Tersteeg All my tweets go to Facebook. 'Cause if they didn't, I'd never remember to post anything there. in reply to Tersteeg #
  • Now that I think about it, everything that goes into my Facebook stream comes from an external source. It's a hub for my tubes. πŸ™‚ #
  • RT @siracusa: Free, fully functional evaluation copy of Snow Leopard Server: http://bit.ly/3di6Nn #
  • On the couch with @rachelbancroft, playing Words with Friends on our iPhones, eating ice cream. I love this woman. πŸ™‚ #
  • Picked up Transformers 2 on Blu-Ray today. I missed it in the theater, and my inner nerd won't let that stand. πŸ™‚ #
  • @danielpunkass AFAICT, the Nook doesn't have web browsing capability. The Kindle does (however limited). Also, no txt/HTML/.mobi on the Nook in reply to danielpunkass #
  • @danielpunkass And you'd be betting that B&N's ebook library is going to suit you better than Amazon's. in reply to danielpunkass #
