@Twitterrific If you don’t read Twitter in realtime, you need realtime notification of mentions and DMs without clicking to a new view.
@egoldstein Well put.
@a4agarwal Fair enough. Impressed in your engagement, which certainly counteracts the negative. Followed!
@a4agarwal Not against marketing! Against knocking competition, particularly when it’s partly subjective. Better to focus on the product.
@a4agarwal If the answer to either question is yes, I can make a lot more use of the service.
@a4agarwal I’m still a fan of the product, I’m just very turned off by the marketing approach. Careful you’re not doing more harm than good.
@a4agarwal It’s the tone; feels less, “check us out, we have a great product,” and more, “check us out because what you’re using sucks.”
I like @posterous as a platform, but their current negative marketing campaign turns my stomach. It’s actually convincing me not to use them
Angry people don’t need anything specific to make them angry. But if they find something, watch out.
phillryu lack of fast app switching in beejive is driving me crazy right now, I want to see that ugly splash screen vanquished forever
@Seanfunk Yeah, but native iPad apps offer a way better experience. Twitterific is quite good.
@Seanfunk I’ve got that, and Twitterific, and Tweetdeck… Unfortunately Tweetie / Twitter for iPhone isn’t available for iPad yet.
Sorry @pzizz - unsubscribing from your mailing list because all you do is market 3rd party offers on it now.
I can’t believe @echofon Pro on the iPad doesn’t have an email Tweet button. Maybe I’m missing it, but I can’t find it.
@geehoneybee Try which part? So I refreshed, and everything I did was still there.
@geehoneybee Just now I made a bunch of changes in Google Calendar, saved, then noticed “An error has occurred, please try again”.
@JimmySlims That, my friend, was an example of reasonableness.
@JimmySlims you make a good point. (see how reasonable I’m being?)
While people may argue with your reasoning, it’s very hard for them to argue with reasonableness.
@taddeis I hear some changes are in store for you. Again. It seems like everything has changed since I talked to you at Tony’s!
How long does a stack of paperwork need to sit on your desk completely untouched before it’s safe to assume it will never be needed?
@ttscoff FWIW I love the new avatar. Just the right ratio of creepy to silly.
@geehoneybee Yeah, I agree that’s weak sauce.
@geehoneybee All of the features of iOS4 work in iPhone 4, a subset of those work on 3GS, and a smaller subset work on 3G.
@geehoneybee Yikes, I don’t know. I’ve never run into that before.
@geehoneybee Multitasking only works on apps that have implemented it - it’s a new feature that each app developer needs to add.
reckless Three million iPads sold doesn’t mean there’s a tablet market, it means there’s an iPad market. Other products have a long way to go.
@TechDaddyK Looks like redsn0w’s not ready for 3GS yet. Oh well, eventually. I just like replacing Apple’s notifications.
Just had it gently pointed out to me that my profile said I write for downloafsquad.com instead of downloadsquad.com. What a horrifying typo
@TechDaddyK Which jailbreak did you use (or is there even a choice)?
@geehoneybee Yep. So far, so good. Feels snappy, and I like the new folder and task switching functionality.
Figured out how to make an iPhone’s battery last longer.
Get an iPad.
@Seanfunk Switching back and forth between the two. I like Chrome’s speed and extensibility, and Safari’s integration with Mac OS.

@SlvrLambStudios No; we had previously booked my son’s 7th birthday party for that afternoon. Wish I could have made it.
I’m shocked at how irrelevant Firefox has become for me.
@chartier I agree my opinion isn’t worthless, but I don’t have a right to post it on your popular site just because I want to.
@geehoneybee Your use of “anal” and “nerdalert” in a single tweet has me overwhelmed with possible responses (none that are appropriate).
I can’t believe my family got me an iPad for Father’s Day! #fb

@leemathews Do you mean like Quix? I find it crazy useful.
swirlee I should probably go to sleep, but there are still THINGS on the INTERNET.
Me, to my two year-old: “Can I have a hug?” Her: “Yes, you MAY.” WTF? #fb
I love @gruber’s retweets. Letting us laugh at the idiots that troll him is far better than any other response would be.
My eldest son is seven today. That is all.
@chartier There’s an iPhone app called Feeds that is a GReader client that I keep on my phone only because it can delete feeds.

Digging in the sand at Crescent Beach, finding shells, playing catch, and flying kites on a beautiful Saturday. Gotta love it! #fb
@jen_robbins That’s one of my dad’s favourite quotes!
@Simbeau Yep! Was a good show - though I could have done with more Molly and less Paul and Storm, personally. You were there, I gather?
@Simbeau Isn’t it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?
Maybe I used too many monkeys.
So Google’s defaulting the background image to something annoying enough that it will force most users to actually choose something? Nice.
Not cool @google. Not cool.
My lava lamp bulb burned out. Yes, I have a lava lamp in my home office. It’s cool, okay? Geez!
@geehoneybee When life gives you limonade? That doesn’t even make any sense!

@leemathews Ahh, haha - yeah, dead batteries make modifier keys not work so good.
@leemathews Oh wait - Windows key is “Option”, *Shift*-Windows is “Alt”. Maybe that’s the issue?
@leemathews I use a Microsoft keyboard (and mouse) every day with my Mac.
@leemathews Windows key on a Windows keyboard is the Alt key in Mac OS. And the Alt key on the Windows keyboard is the Command key in OS X.
@geehoneybee Thanks, now it’s in my head too!
Oh me? Can’t complain. Well… I *could* complain, but I won’t.
@leemathews FWIW I agree the reboot is annoying.
@leemathews Yeah, but try to install a major version upgrade of IE on Windows without rebooting. Or IE on your Mac at all!
@TUAW It does that in Chrome, too.
@JimmySlims In hindsight, wine last night before today’s early morning was not well thought through. We should get together soon, though.
@JimmySlims Children’s Hospital Child Run, then M has a birthday party to go to, then J has a family BBQ birthday party we’re all going to.
Drinking wine and talking philosophy with my gorgeous and wise wife. A perfect spring evening.

Hope the mild weather sticks around for playing lacrosse-box hockey this afternoon in Richmond!
@geehoneybee LOL, that’s easy: because it’s sad & disgusting. I’m particularly pleased that a family establishment isn’t carrying it.

BrentButt Stanley Cup finals start tonight. Canucks vs Habs!!! Oh yeaaahhh!!! What? Yes it is. Yea they are. They are so. Shut up.
@SlvrLambStudios Yes, please… That would be great, thanks!
@SlvrLambStudios I deactivated my Facebook account, but I guess I’m going to have to consider reactivating. Surprise party? Wow. Thanks!
@SlvrLambStudios No, I didn’t! Was it announced somewhere? Is there going to be a retirement party?

So, @glentrainor… Yacht Rock is pretty messed up.
@GlenTrainor Already? That was fast! I was thinking on my way home that I’d like another shot at the bass track on that one.
