Josh’s Lifelog for 2010-06-16

  • Parrot AR.Drone to attack this September, for $300 http://j.mp/avi3oN Insta-add to my wish list. πŸ™‚ #
  • I love my job. πŸ™‚ #
  • The plastic clamshell packaging for the new aluminum Apple Remote is pretty cool. So is the remote. http://post.ly/jbwr #
  • @shadowbottle Yeah, I was wondering what that extra button is for. πŸ™‚ in reply to shadowbottle #
  • As someone who played trumpet for 8 years in school, I salute the lip stamina of those droning vuvuzelas. πŸ™‚ #
  • @hoffer7 Once in a while I get out my trumpet and play, and my numb lips remind me how out of shape I am. I miss making music, though. πŸ™‚ in reply to hoffer7 #
  • It just got dark and stormy out here in Hillsboro… #pdxtst #
  • @dsearls Only way to get non-Amazon docs into Kindle app is their (non-free) email delivery service: http://j.mp/cIofJr in reply to dsearls #
  • Gran Turismo 5 will be 3D? If they wait a little longer, they'll be compatible with that telepathic controller coming in 2015. πŸ˜‰ #
  • Just installed OS X 10.6.4 update (via the combo updater, learned my lesson there!), no problems. πŸ™‚ #
  • Hmm. Mail.app got upgraded, wants to upgrade my messages/database. #
  • My beloved Letterbox plugin for vertical reading in Mail.app got disabled in the 10.6.4/Mail 4.3 update. Any update, @aaronharnly? #
  • My local AT&T store = FAIL. They have no idea when they're going to receive pre ordered iPhones. Cash in hand, they can't guarantee one. πŸ™ #
  • And now the Apple Store iPhone app (my plan B) says "there's a problem, go to an Apple Store location." Blerg! πŸ™ #
  • Took me ten tries or so, but I ordered an iPhone for delivery from Apple online. (from my iPad in front of the AT&T store πŸ™‚ #
  • @k1mb3rly I'd say Plan A = get an order in at store.apple.com. Be persistent. It worked for me. Plan B = early at AT&T store on 6/24. in reply to k1mb3rly #
  • @k1mb3rly don't pre-order with AT&T. It's not the same as last year. I was told there won't be a separate pre-order line. in reply to k1mb3rly #
  • Wow. AT&T and Apple sold out of launch day iPhones? Both showing a ship date of July 2. I was lucky… #
