  • If you're not already using @Dropbox, sign up now. 2GB account is free and you and I both get an extra 250MB w/this link: http://j.mp/dbdave #
  • I'm so glad the kids have started watching "Chopped" in lieu of "iCarly" #TelevisionIsYummy http://twitpic.com/1em135 #
  • The best case would be if @lorenb still owns Tweetie for Mac, because then it's a slam dunk to pass it off to @danielpunkass #
  • Ok, thanks all that suggested holding down shift key. Safe boot forces login window to appear. #
  • To be clear: I need to do this without first logging in. Looking for some terminal or keyboard shortcut to bring up the login screen on boot #
  • So is there any way to force my Mac to show me the login screen on boot and not autologin? Yes, I know I should know this one. ;) #
  • Holy crap I'm hyper this afternoon. I just got off of 3 phone calls in a row where I think I scared people with all this energy! #
  • Oh joy. I bit the bullet and upgraded my main Mac to 10.6.3 last night -- now "Mingler" has been running at 100% ever since. #
  • From this video http://tmo.to/edQp it seems like Apple's active-apps menu is their own version of a "task manager." A rose by any other name #
  • "So, you gonna tell us when WWDC 2010 is so we can plan our freakin' summer vacations, dude?" #
  • Apple's "billion ad impressions" assumes I'm seeing an ad in every app, right? On their beloved device? #
  • I really think the state of New Hampshire wants me to fire myself, collect unemployment, and keep my salary as retained earnings. #
  • Interesting - iPhone OS 4 coming for 3GS before iPad. @MacObserverLive #
  • Google's made a lot of money on *simple* text ads. This high barrier to entry that Apple's created with the HTML5 ads is curious. #
  • Apple may not care about that, of course, they'll make money anyway. But what about indie developer who wants to advertise? #
  • These interactive ads sound interesting, but they exclude anyone who doesn't have the talent or budget to create them. #
  • No mention of a user/app-accessible system-wide filestore yet, right? #
  • RT @MacObserverLive: You can open attachments from an e-mail with an app, directly from inside the e-mail. #iPhoneOS4 #
  • Clever! RT @MacObserverLive: Apple is providing seven different multitasking APIs. The first is a background audio API. To wit: Pandora. #
  • Yay iPhone multitasking. And there was silence. #
  • And he's off! @TMOBryan is en route to Cupertino for today's event #TMOL #
  • Since I didn't fly out for today's event, perhaps on my behalf someone will start Q&A by addressing Steve, "Let me holla at ya, Shawty." #
  • W00t! Rush on tour this summer. Apparently the tour will feature "Moving Pictures" in its entirety (for the first time ever) #fb #
  • What's your favorite portable bluetooth keyboard (for the iPad, or really anything)? #
  • My prediction for today's event: We'll finally get WWDC 2010 dates. #
  • TMO will have your live coverage of tomorrow's Apple iPhone OS Special Event http://tmo.to/ub (via @MacObserver) #
  • Facebook's "Like" button: for when you're just not witty enough. #
  • Apple hires ex-Sun Chief Council for upcoming IP battles http://goo.gl/fb/DtqZO (via @9to5mac) #
  • Awesome iPad use case #18 At band rehearsal on the music stand with song chords and lyrics.

    Also, I may have played guitar tonight. #fb #

  • Sweet - we get tabs? :-) RT @chartier: Feature Sneak Peek: Go & Fill is coming to 1Password for iPad and 1Password Pro: http://j.mp/bL8uAI #
  • You knew it had to happen. The "original" iPad case: http://j.mp/dygAWK (thanks @chadwickaaron) #
  • Based on replies it seems iSSH is the best (and perhaps only) choice for SSH on iPad right now. #
  • ...and your favorite SSH client for the iPad is? #
  • Heading to Washington, DC soon with the fam (have to talk to 'em about Guam! :), but got denied on White House tours. Anyone that can help? #
  • Well done. RT @ecjacqui: The Ars iPad review is now up. http://arst.ch/i69 #
  • Despite its lack of support for the case, I like this iPad Keyboard Dock. With the right OS updates, this thing'll replace laptops for many. #
  • Well, Apple, that's pretty dumb: you made both a case and a keyboard dock for your iPad, and they don't work together. :-( #
  • Just saw an awesome, Mac-based, planetarium show by @acdolph - done (mostly?) with open source software. More info soon (Thanks, Andy!) #
  • I find it good to end any broad list of potentially sensitive groups with "and the hydrocephalic." I did so here: http://bit.ly/bKKUUk #
  • Good point: Don't forget international devs haven't even gotten iPads yet... No launch date in UK even. (via @jamesthomson) #
  • it's good to remember that (most/all?) iPad developers have only been able to test on real hardware since Saturday. #CuttingSomeSlack #
  • Lots from @twittelator tonight: Twittelator Pad v1.0.1 available! Fixes disappearing timeline http://j.mp/twitpad #
  • Twittelator Pro v3.8 live: search any timeline, 350 accesses/hour, fuzzy geotag http://j.mp/twitpro (via @twittelator) #
  • .@AaronIsaacs @mickster09 Twittelator for iPad is best I've found. not perfect yet, though. in reply to AaronIsaacs #
  • I've tried a lot of iPad Twitter clients and haven't yet found one I like. back to iPhone Twittelator while the devs all code away. #
  • Mac Geek Gab ep253 MP3 is up. 10.6.3, iPad, SXSW, SD, SSD, and More! http://tmo.to/edOI #fb #
  • Thanks, all -- Yes, iPad had periods of standby/sleep there, which is clearly when it charged. #
  • Had my iPad plugged into my USB hub (5V), and it said "Not Charging" but magically went from 79% to 95% battery. ;-) #
  • THe streaming in E*Trade Mobile Pro for iPad is pretty damned cool. Wait, what? I have other work to do?

    Oh. #

  • Any iPad-owner pilots (or flight sim enthusiasts) will definitely want to check out ForeFlight http://j.mp/9eLrQS #
