  • I just ousted @k1mb3rly as the mayor of Fred Meyer – TV Highway on @foursquare! http://4sq.com/4PRMxS #
  • @peat Wall-E in 1080p is *glorious*. First BluRay disc I bought, remains one I show off. in reply to peat #
  • New issue of @makezine has an awesome howto on an automated chicken coop. Must build. Also, the digital edition of Make works great on iPad. #
  • @KevinCTofel voice search works perfectly for me in Google Mobile App for iPad for me… in reply to KevinCTofel #
  • Off to download Opera Mini. Not sure I like how it proxies everything you browse through their servers… #
  • 1 minute impression: Opera Mini for iPhone is fast, but brings back the bad old days of WAP versions of sites, and is kind of ugly. #
  • I'd consider using Opera Mini for iPhone if I were stuck on EDGE, and needed something really fast. Otherwise, I'm sticking with Safari. #

  • Family pictures with 23 kids, 14 adults on a rock pile – not so easy, akshully: http://twitpic.com/1epa0z #
  • Just used my iPad to show YouTube videos to a room full of 12 people, almost 180 degrees, and it worked like a charm. Brilliant. #
  • @shiva well, if you assume the only thing I ever do on the iPad is watch YouTube videos, yeah, that's a bad deal. πŸ˜‰ in reply to shiva #

  • I'm in Medford for the weekend at a family reunion, but i'm still hungry for details on Apple's OS 4 event. Don't fail me, internets. πŸ™‚ #
  • Digging the Apple iPad case for propping it up watching Twitterrific for #iPhoneOS4 news. #
  • Wanting to sre how easy it is to type on the landscape iPad. Only one mistake, and I typed this really quickly! Awesome! πŸ™‚ #
  • Digging the Apple iPad case for propping it up watching Twitterrific for #iPhoneOS4 news http://post.ly/YoT8 #
  • App folders, multiple Exchange accts, multitasking, game network, iBooks and BT keyboards on iPhone/touch. I'd call #iPhoneOS4 a home run. #
  • @jshardison actually, I didn't write that post – @cvvick did. But it's a good one! πŸ™‚ in reply to jshardison #
  • I'm in Medford, OR for 5 days. I left my laptop at home, using only my iPad/iPhone. First time I've travelled w/o a laptop. Feels great. πŸ™‚ #
  • That is, I don't feel like I'm without a computer. The iPad fills that role perfectly. My iPhone was my "main" computer. Now iPad shares. #

  • Articles (a gorgeous Wikipedia app for which I happily paid $3 on iPhone) is only $1 for iPad, until the dev is "happy with it". Get it. #
  • Struggling with a good way to quickly read/process my Google Reader feeds on the iPad. Web is clunky. Reeder isn't for iPad yet. Ideas? #
  • @gregr I love NewsGator's stuff in general, but didn't love NetNewsWire for iPhone. Reluctant to drop $10 on the iPad version. πŸ™ in reply to gregr #
  • @kellyrfeller Why, thank you. Thank you vereh much. πŸ˜‰ in reply to kellyrfeller #
  • 6yo @emmabancroft just spontaneously asked, from her own observations, "How come everything we eat has corn syrup in it?" #
  • @ahockley I've not tried NetNewsWire for iPad yet, but I think I might. I wish @reeder for iPad was ready. πŸ™‚ in reply to ahockley #

  • Another day of Live Developer TV! πŸ™‚ RT @isntv: LIVE on Parallel Programming Talk: Listener Questions and Tom Murphy. http://j.mp/isntv #
  • RT @gregr: Monle (non-linear audio editor for iPhone) looks pretty sweet. iPad version would probably be even cooler! http://bit.ly/djoUZb #
  • Experimenting With the iPad as a Secondary (Tertiary?) Display http://post.ly/YH9q #
  • @lunarobverse Yes, I'm just running apps on the iPad that show the info I want. Though the iDisplay app turns the iPad into another monitor. #
  • My 6yo, @emmabancroft, shoulder surfed one of my passwords last night as I was logging in somewhere on my iPad. I'm scared *and* proud. πŸ™‚ #
  • RT @isntv: On now: Visualize This! Chat with Firaxis about Civilization V (recorded at GDC 2010). Come watch! http://j.mp/isntv #
  • .@morganpdx Shoulder Surfing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoulder_surfing_(computer_security) #
  • Just paired my Apple Bluetooth Keyboard to my iPad for this tweet. Going to have to get another one of these for my iPad bag. πŸ™‚ #
  • @pdxwy Right now I'm using a Timbuk2 Messenger Metro that I got for netbooks. They don't make it any more. Considering a Freestyle. in reply to pdxwy #
  • Got my iPad case and VGA adapter. The "laser pointer" in Keynote is awesome. πŸ™‚ http://twitpic.com/1dpr6q #
  • McTeachers' Night fundraiser for @emmabancroft's school. (@ Mcdonalds – TV Hwy) http://4sq.com/dtLMdg #
  • @FunGuYom @sethlong In Keynote, tap and hold and a virtual laser spot appears. And I'm using the Apple case for now. Love it so far. in reply to FunGuYom #
  • GodFinger is a way fun iPad game. A cross between We Rule, Pocket God, The Sims, and Super Mario Galaxy. I'm jabancroft on Plus+. Friend me! #

  • @blogan I've got meetings all morning, but hopefully in the afternoon the petting zoo will be open for a bit. πŸ™‚ in reply to blogan #
  • Argh. The Intel receiving dock has my iPad, but they won't give it to me until 2PM. The wait is KILLING me. πŸ™ #
  • I guess I'll while away the time at my desk with my new Lego Toy Story Army Men until I can get my iPad at 2PM. Or, you know, work. πŸ™‚ #
  • @jezlyn This is one I'm getting for work. I'm still ordering a 64GB 3G model. in reply to jezlyn #
  • @aaroneiche They've got a giant pile of boxes to sort through, and my iPad is somewhere near the bottom. πŸ™ in reply to aaroneiche #
  • Now the receiving department at work says I can't pick up my iPad because it wasn't shipped the right way. Have to wait for delivery. *cry* #
  • My iPad. I haz it. πŸ™‚ ??? http://twitpic.com/1dhfw8 #
  • I accidentally checked the "Sync Apps" box when I plugged my iPad in for the first time, now it's trying to install all 571 of them. Abort! #
  • Went through and chose apps, music, videos, and everything else to sync to my iPad. Now waiting for it all to go over… #
  • iTunes gave me the option to "Set up as new iPad" or "Restore from backup of Josh's iPhone". Personality transfer between the two? #
  • RT @rachelbancroft: I think I'm going to be an iPad widow for a few days. (/me: No, you need to join me in basking in the wonder! πŸ™‚ #
  • The modded plastic Mini DV tape case I've been using as an iPhone desk stand works perfectly with an iPad: http://twitpic.com/1di285 #
  • it is seriously windy out there #
  • First iPad tweet. Using Twitterrific. Paid the $5 to upgrade because @chockenberry is a nice guy. πŸ™‚ #
  • Disorganized iPad impressions http://j.mp/cneLXo I'm inclined to agree with "iPad native or nothing". Pixel doubling feels gross. #
