  • Woo! It's a nice chilly 12 degrees F outside. Yikes. This is Portland, not Spokane! πŸ™‚ http://twitpic.com/ssq9k #
  • I just ousted @kfcochrane as the mayor of Intel – Jones Farm on @foursquare! http://4sq.com/6f6D7H #
  • Live video broadcasting finally hits the iPhone: UStream Live Broadcaster is out. http://bit.ly/7DGuOv 3G or wifi, 3GS or 3G (it seems?) #
  • I always figured I'd go with whoever among Qik, Ustream, etc. got live video broadcasting to the iPhone first. Looks like it's Ustream. πŸ™‚ #
  • Hey! I'm live on Ustream from my iPhone – http://ustre.am/uFE #
  • Sorry about the "I'm live on UStream" tweet. I'm not live. Just testing the app/settings. Too much supar sekrit work stuff to go live now! #
  • Ustream's live video broadcaster app for iPhone is a big deal. Works on 3G or wifi. iPhone 3G or 3GS. Very slick and easy. Game changing. #
  • @turkchgo Something like that. πŸ™‚ Let's just say there's stuff going on around me that shouldn't be broadcast live. πŸ˜‰ in reply to turkchgo #
  • @gregleff I try to post about one really cool app/tool/service a day. Compulsively. Usually iPhone stuff. It's my flavor of nerdism. πŸ™‚ in reply to gregleff #
  • There are different UStream apps – one for watching live streams, and now, one for making them. Choose accordingly. All are free. #
  • @influxx I haven't done any UStream live iPhone testing yet, but from what I've seen and heard, the quality is great (320×240 default). in reply to influxx #
  • Had a fascinating conversation with @jerry_makare and @artigupta about privacy, journalism, the future, and the UStream broadcast app. πŸ™‚ #
  • The UStream broadcaster app claims it works on the iPhone 3G. It can record to the local device. If true, this gives the 3G video recording. #
  • Final Fantasy XIII doesn't come out until March in the U.S. (next week in Japan), and I'm already getting excited about it. πŸ™‚ #
  • Some helpful tips for using Dragon Dictation on your iPhone: http://bit.ly/5f9MIu Formatting, punctuation, etc. #
  • Frantic call from @rachelbancroft. Frozen burst pipe in our garage. Got plumber/fixer recommendations in Beaverton? #
  • Got the water shut off, but plumber can't come until the AM. Luckily, nothing more the lawnmower got wet. Still, huge PITA. πŸ™ #
  • I'm broadcasting, from my iPhone, live on Ustream – http://ustre.am/8VFN #
