Twitter Updates for 2009-06-23

  • @chrisharrop Not free, but CEOs used to make 10-20x their lowest paid worker’s wage. Now they make more than 400x as much. in reply to chrisharrop #
  • Back 2 Tweetie and loving the speed (while waiting 4 TweetDeck 2 get stable). Wondering how long before I run back 2 Twittelator 4 features. #
  • @chrisharrop personally I think CEO pay should be directly tied to year over year stock price. Company loses money, no golden parachutes. in reply to chrisharrop #
  • Disappointed in technology this morning #
  • Child of the 70s: Saw two motorcycle cops riding side by side on big cruisers and now I have a CHiPs theme song earworm. #
  • RT @pourmecoffee: BREAKING. Sarah Palin can see Mark Sanford from her window – wait, never mind, it’s a bear. #
  • Happy birthday @joshwhedon (if that really is you, Joss)! #
  • @znh For turn by turn directions, a compass allows the phone to know where you’re headed even if you’re not moving. #
  • Blue elf needs nap! Badly! #
  • @crimsonsky56 Vlingo’s voice recognition proved surprisingly accurate. Good way to add voice control to non 3GS. And free, so what the heck. #
  • @jchutchins Batman Begins #
  • @anamariecox I think the Internets thing has been a running ironic joke for so long it actually became a word. I say it myself. #
  • @thegreatmissjj Perhaps someone should bring you some sorts. #
  • @delrayser Well sometimes they don’t take… #
  • @anamariecox Not logical? He’s going full on Vulcan on them? #
  • @crimsonsky56 What do you see as the key advantages of OSX over Windows 7? Assuming same hardware. #
  • @jchutchins Aliens #
  • @crimsonsky56 Interesting. I’ve used Expose clones for Windows, but find Aero Peek in the taskbar easier to use. #
  • @crimsonsky56 And while OSX doesn’t have a registry, it has a similar mess of preferences and Unix settings. #
  • @crimsonsky56 So if we’ve achieved parity in desktop OSes, what will geeks fight about? #
  • @delrayser But does anybody put Helen in a corner? #
  • @crimsonsky56 Not completely optimized battery life is to be expected in pre-release software. #
  • Up to 599 notes still tagged “Reading Material” in @evernote. (After reading, I retag them.) Somebody find me more hours per day. #
  • @crimsonsky56 NEVER! I must be informed! Or at least have the option to be informed! #
  • @crimsonsky56 And only 187 notes are from the last seven days. Anything older than that is strictly optional. #
  • @crimsonsky56 You say “addicted to information” like it’s a bad thing… #
  • @crimsonsky56 So you use someone else’s devices? #
  • @crimsonsky56 My life, is, in fact, ridiculously my own. It’s nice. #
  • @bonniegrrl @rstevens What really makes the corset-wearing, packing salmon insidious is their green ball point pens. #
  • RT @paulapoundstone I was up late watching Dirty Dozen bc I wanted to show my son that when u don’t bathe regularly Telly Savalas acts out. #
  • @crimsonsky56 I burned most of my Windows 7 ISOs to DVD with Windows 7. Works great. #
  • Stop! Burrito time! #
  • @crimsonsky56 Well, I did grow up in Houston, where Tex-Mex is a way of life. As the seal to the Eskimo, the burrito is sacred to me. in reply to crimsonsky56 #
  • @caitkitt I had a cage fight with a ninja once. Pantsed him. #
  • @RobT43 I have dark questions about eReader for iPhone 3.0, mostly around in-app purchase. #
  • @crimsonsky56 I’ve found that the world has changed and traditional PIM apps aren’t as vital as they used to be. #
  • @crimsons@crimsonsky56 Facebook/Twitter have subsumed Contacts. My calendar & tasks are mixed in with my email & notes. It’s all cloud now. #
  • The iPhone and Pre are phones for a post-PIM paradigm. #
  • @crimsonsky56 Maybe I’m “special”, but alarms on tasks don’t matter to me anymore. My life is too fluid for that kind of planning. #
  • @crimsonsky56 We need to get the WOYPers on teh Twitter #
  • @unwiredben Interesting perspective. I think we’re probably in agreement in everything but terms. #
  • @unwiredben I see the Pre as beyond the simple Palm Pilot PIM apps. It encompasses so much more. #
  • @unwiredben But even the Pre isn’t centered on Contacts and Calendar like the Pilot/Treo was. #
  • @crimsonsky56 What do you need on the iPhone that Calendar (synced to Google) and Evernote (set up for GTD) don’t do? #
  • @crimsonsky56 Keeping in mind GTD rules, ie anything time-specific goes on calendar, not tasklist, etc. #
  • @crimsonsky56 You might want to take another look at http://bit.ly/bmEwX #
  • @crimsonsky56 Try starting with Leo’s Zen to Done method. Same ideas, simplified. http://bit.ly/g3Bn #
  • Quoth Die Fliedermaus: “The look… is key.” #
  • My brain is redlining, leading me into a cascade of completely undirected anxiety. Yay! #
  • @litchick77 As you gaze into the Andover, gazes also the Andover into you. #
  • Must… Slow… Neural… Firing… #
  • @MaxGeek Throw her in the lava pit! Or bed. #
  • @crimsonsky56 Usually my Paxil keeps the anxiety well under control. It only surfaces when my brain is moving too fast. Meep! #
  • @jamesus I’m gonna have to go with Botox. #
  • @Alli_Flowers That is, without a doubt, the most twisted pun this week. Brava. #
  • @jamesus Depends on what they’re baking. “Special” brownies are a real crowd pleaser. #
  • @litchick77 Ah, so your version of Highlands Ranch here in Denver. Excellent! (ask @tibbarerew) in reply to litchick77 #
  • @TeresaKopec “Why put on pants at all…” A question that vexes me every day. #
  • 33 articles clipped for reading just today in @evernote. Maybe I should block out time to read them… #
  • @hodgman The Completely Stationary Stones #coolbandsmadeuncool #
  • @dgawlik324 Yeah, noticed that when I hit her IMDB page after seeing the trailer for GI Joe. Internets FTW! #
  • .@crimsonsky56 Taking another look at Pocket Informant for iPhone myself. #
  • Hey, my iPhone with 3.0 won’t let me download a podcast over 10MB over cellular! I thought that restriction was lifted in 3.0. What gives? #
  • @crimsonsky56 Push alerts for calendar and task will come with PI updated for 3.0. #
  • RT @pogue 2 iPhone apps available that give turn-by-turn GPS. But both are $10 a MONTH! Hint: GPS does not stand for Greedy Profit-Sucking! #
  • @crimsonsky56 The cloud is mother. The cloud is father. #
  • @crimsonsky56 RIM’s problem is everything going through their NOC, single point of failure. Bad idea. #
  • @crimsonsky56 xGPS is a well-regarded turn by turn GPS for free if you have a jailbroken iPhone. #
  • @crimsonsky56 I have RedSn0w on my PC at home, could jailbreak, but not sure it’s worth it. I could multitask, but not impressive in 128MB. #
  • @crimsonsky56 That’s why I’m leaning to not jailbreaking. Other than multitasking, everything I jailbroke for I have in OS 3.0. in reply to crimsonsky56 #
  • @crimsonsky56 I’ve found that full text feeds the way to go. If I can’t read the post in my reader, I don’t. #
  • OMG massive LOTRO patch no gaming for me. I haz a sad. #
