Josh’s Lifelog for 2010-06-22

  • Trying to download and install iOS 4. iTunes is misbehaving. *sigh* #
  • I think all the people downloading iOS4 are straining the intertubes in my locale. πŸ™‚ #
  • The fact that I have like 29 app updates (for iOS4 compatibility, no doubt) isn't helping speed the download process any. #
  • Whee! I can haz iOS4! πŸ™‚ http://twitpic.com/1ysq5j #
  • First thing I did in iOS4: set up my work exchange account to work alongside Google Push. http://twitpic.com/1ystbm #
  • Already running into the "can only have 12 apps in a folder" limitation in iOS4. I have way more than 12 games installed. πŸ™ #
  • @MaverickNY iOS4 took about as long as I'd expect a 378MB file to download. I didn't time it, but no more than 15-20 minutes. in reply to MaverickNY #
  • @penmachine @JBern Yeah, I'm going to have to sub-categorize my games. Thinking Online/Sims/Action/etc. in reply to penmachine #
  • @baub No, folders in folders doesn't work in iOS – I just tried it. in reply to baub #
  • @MicBP @edmistond Google Sync (email, calendar, and contacts via Exchange) works great for me. I love it, though it has occasional problems. in reply to MicBP #
  • Finally, I can cram all the built-in iPhone apps I don't use (Stocks, Weather, Notes, etc.) into an out-of-the-way folder. πŸ™‚ #iOS4 #
  • @LoSzabo I like Osfoora HD on the iPad. What makes the iPhone version better than Tweetie/Twitter? in reply to LoSzabo #
  • AWESOME! iBooks 1.1 syncs your place/bookmarks across free ePub books you've added, not just purchased books. Woo hoo! πŸ™‚ #
  • Just got a real-looking email from Apple saying my iPhone 4 will arrive a day early. Hoax? Miracle? FedEx still says 6/24. #
  • The iPhone 4 day-early thing seems true. Tons of people tweeting it. FedEx says they're in Oakland right now, so it's plausible. Yay πŸ™‚ #

  • 'Galcon Fusion' for iPad On Sale – 75% Off for a Week http://j.mp/9kJwkY Well worth it. Get it now. #
  • Just took the weed whacker to my front yard. Yes, it was that long. It was as if a million blades of grass cried out, and were silenced. #
  • Now I'm covered in gobbets of plant guts, and my alergies are going nuts. #snorfle #
  • Seeing Toy Story 3 with the kids. So excited! πŸ™‚ (@ Regal Movies on TV 16) http://4sq.com/6qnRnn #
  • I just unlocked the "Zoetrope" badge on @foursquare! http://4sq.com/cnSICt #
  • Toy Story 3 was perfect. We loved it. Best movie I've seen all year, if not longer. And yes, you'll cry at the end. #
  • Just got shipping notice/tracking number for my iPhone 4 preorder! Let the countdown officially begin! πŸ™‚ #
  • Why Angry Birds is so much fun http://j.mp/aOECuF Insight from Dave. I agree. #

  • I chuckle every time I think of the title of the book "Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem" πŸ™‚ http://amzn.to/bacdNl #
  • For the record, I am unconvinced about the future of 3D in movies/games. Too fiddly, experience is poor (esp. for people with RX glasses). #
  • @ddmcd I've read Ebert's thoughts on 3D, and I tend to agree with him. Plus, I don't want to buy a new TV and wear special glasses at home. in reply to ddmcd #
  • @kellyrfeller Honestly, I couldn't care less about helping Hollywood make things harder to pirate, if it ruins the user experience. DRM sux. in reply to kellyrfeller #
  • @bobduffy @kellyrfeller I don't condone or practice piracy, but DRM has gotten so extreme that it can ruin the whole experience. in reply to bobduffy #
  • @bobduffy Oh. That makes more sense. πŸ™‚ And "unconvinced" means "willing to be convinced". Just not seeing it yet. in reply to bobduffy #
  • @kellyrfeller @bobduffy Yeah, if enough people are willing to pay 2x the ticket price for a 3D movie, or buy new 3D TVs, they'll do it. in reply to kellyrfeller #
  • I can't believe that Toy Story 3 still has 100% on Rotten Tomatoes after 125 reviews. Wow. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/toy_story_3/ #
  • Anyone want to buy something from me? I've got this @square card reader and app, and no one to give me money with it! πŸ˜‰ #
  • @blaircook I don't know how to run an airline miles scheme, so I couldn't say. πŸ˜‰ in reply to blaircook #
