Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-05-23

  • Back from the MIT Flea. Not the greatest, but any Flea where you fondle a Cray 6 logic board and score an OM-10 for $5 is OK. #
  • Just realized: Jon Stewart is like Leslie Nielsen. Funny when he reads the joke straight, but DEATH when he tries to be funny. #
  • Watching "House" season finale, shot entirely on an iPhone. Wait, no, a Canon 5D SLR. Which is still kind of impressive. #
  • Getting set up for MacBreak Weekly. Watch and listen live at http://live.twit.tv/ #
  • The plot of "The Hangover" could have been the walkthrough of a really good Infocom text adventure game. #
  • Columnists whom the gods would destroy, they first make cover a 2day keynote that splits across a print deadline. Thanks Google! #
  • Watching the Google keynote. G is so worked up on spanking Apple with this talk that they've stopped listening for the safeword. #
  • Onward to GoogleTV. Their slogan seems to be "We should switch to the other box," for all of the HW connectivity problems. #
  • ("We should switch to the other box" is actually a good slogan in general for a new alternative to TV. Would be nice if the demo worked.) #
  • They're now seriously asking 5000 people to turn off their cellphones to solve the connectivity problems. Google rly understands people. #
  • Lots of good stuff in this keynote; typing and listening and thinking instead of making snarky comments, sorry. :) #
  • (Google: this is the THIRD time you've asked 5000 people to turn off their phones. It makes you sound very, very silly.) #
  • Hey, cool…MacBreak is one of the dozen HD video podcasts that just happened to be featured on the demo page. #
  • (Oh, for God's sake: CUT THE MICS of the people who are debugging your preso hardware probs when someone else is talking!) #
  • Other than these (big and avoidable) tech problems, it's a very VERY solid preso…leaves everyone with lots to think about. #
  • This keynote has been both about practical platform advantages but JUST as much about market positioning and differentiation. #
  • Interesting: the Adobe Flash Player team talks in-depth about Flash 10.1 on Android » http://bit.ly/bahrLR #
  • At comix shop, I H-A-T-E-D the in-store music so much I nearly left before getting what I came for. (This was my intro to Phish) #
  • Just finished talking to Google about Google TV. Keynote piece will appear in Sun-Times tonight or early tomorrow. #
  • I envy the actors who got to play foppish Roman emperors in 60's epic films. It looks like that was a pretty fun gig. #
  • New on Suntimes.com: My take on Froyo, GoogleTV, Flash on mobile, and other stuff from the Google keynote » http://bit.ly/cuzFLQ #
  • ALERT: Leno Horne movies on TCM all night long! #
  • I'm no expert…but I think this is bad marketing. http://yfrog.com/4c1xtj #
  • Just bought my AA flight to San Francisco for WWDC. Now (oh dear) all we need is the announcement of an Apple keynote. #
  • New on Ihnatko.com: Gramma’s Old Capture Album » http://bit.ly/bCbJVt #
  • I like Mike Rowe. I think I'm a good person. So WHY do I laugh hysterically at the DJ where he gets bitten repeatedly by snakes? #
  • Just installed Froyo on my Nexus One. I'm not deep in yet but I like what I see so far. #
  • I updated my N1 to Froyo easy as pie with these instructions from Android Central » http://bit.ly/9TLZjR #
  • Friday's lunch: a lovely Boston bento. >> http://twitpic.com/1q9txv #
