I dislike Arrington, but I love that he asked an HP exec “Do you think it’s ethically wrong to charge as much for ink as you do?”
cwood Every time someone complains about iPad book-reading eyestrain, the marketing manager at Amazon who fabricated that idea cackles with glee.

JadAbumrad PBS needs to chill with the baseball docs. How many do we need? In fact, everyone needs to chill on baseball. It’s not even a sport.
@ttscoff Hold option and click the X to clear one of them, and they all disappear. Not great, but better than clicking all of them.
@graulund - Thanks for Tweet Nest! I’m trying to set up cron jobs, but they fails due to no permissions. How do I provide credentials?
Mike_FTW Go outside. Look at the moon. Now look below and to the right? See it? Yeah that. Then come back and tell me if I’m staring at Uranus.
ScottRintoul Won’t happen, but would love to see Prab Rai get a shot with the twins for ONE reason only - Rai and Gingers would be best-named line in NHL
@geoffgauthier So many good mining terms like that.
@geehoneybee Sound riveting!
@swirlee They changed its name. It’s now called “keyboard shortcuts”.
leemathews If you’re over 40 and use the “word” pwn, you may as well start using things like “dawg” and “shizzle” too. Go all the way. Own it.

Stand up and puke like a man.
Twitter’s Q&A session was basically worthless because all anyone cares about is getting access to #newtwitter. Should have been obvious?
@Ihnatko How many words is that?
mktgdouchebag The only marketing revolution that matters is giving a crap about your customers. With that, the mysteries disappear.

Is it just me, or is Google Instant buggy as hell? Crashed the tab in Chrome many times, now “automated queries” error (Safari’s fine)?

@jsnell FogBugz is very flexible, and might be exactly what you’re looking for. Downside is $$$ depending on the size of your team.
So true! RT @fraying Two kinds of people: Those that truly enjoy solving problems, and those that truly enjoy having them.
Another offer? You don’t say. Well, then, I’d better just jump at this opportunity without doing due diligence. Yessiree. Right away. Yep.
Is it possible to keep the sidebar visible when viewing something in the iTunes Store in iTunes?
.@geoffgauthier came up with another new favourite phrase to my “passive depressive” from last night: “grow a helmet”.
Passive depressive is a thing, right? If not, I’m declaring it a thing.
Just spent 20 minutes waiting for a meeting that was canceled 5 minutes *after* it was supposed to have started.

@ttscoff You’re convincing me to give it a bit more of a chance. Do you use it on iPhone too?
@ttscoff I very aggressively prune my following list so that I *can* read everything. Seems like some clients don’t support that well.
@ttscoff Another beef (if you’re not ignoring me by now) - when moving up a list, it should scroll a page at a time, not by tweet.
@ttscoff I think it comes down to I’m an inbox-zero kind of guy, and Tweetdeck is made for “pilers”.
@ttscoff Socialite does the tweet tracking across lists trick.
@ttscoff Also don’t like that it doesn’t update the dock icon with an unread count badge. (I’m one of those.) Trying j/k/h/p now.
@ttscoff I think I also dislike that Tweetdeck doesn’t track when I read a tweet in one list, and remove it from others it’s also in.
@ttscoff I can barely stand to look at Tweetdeck.
@ttscoff Echofon and Socialite both have it beat. Echofon gets extra credit for aping Gmail’s shortcut keys.
I keep trying TweetDeck, but I can’t get past the ugly, and lack of decent keyboard navigation. It’s so popular; I’m the weird one, right?
@bradlinder Follow up question (if you don’t mind): how do you keep track of email messages you want to come back to?
@bradlinder Haha - sorry. Serious question though: are you more comfortable with stuff in your inbox, i.e. does empty make you nervous?
@bradlinder Yeah, but are you ever going to go back to it? And if you do, why not find it in All Mail instead of Inbox?
@bradlinder Why leave them in your inbox? Sounds like you could just select all, archive, and *poof*, inbox zero!
@bradlinder Ditto. I think if you already had a mature set of filters, and you keep your inbox clean, Priority Inbox is sort of meh.
Cody Hodgson not taking part in the #canucks rookie camp. Supposed reason is injury. I call BS.
@geoffgauthier I just fell in love with you all over again!
This joke is so bad that I love it: RT @ttscoff: Why does Snoop Dogg carry an umbrella? Fo’ drizzle.
Those SuperDogs aren’t so great, you know. The tunnels are kind of small, but I could definitely clear 5 bars at the end of the course. #fb

Seriously. Why can’t Google Docs figure out which account I want to use? It used to work fine.
Wow, just realized that the new HDR photo functionality that iOS 4.1 offers is only for iPhone 4s. Good, now I don’t need to upgrade.
@lexfri Is the HDR photo feature not available for 3GSs?
fraying Google Instant is amazing tech used for the most boring thing ever.
Engadget’s insistence on writing using the “royal we” couldn’t be more distracting. “we kept mistyping”? http://bit.ly/cEKwR7
jaredromanowich “I renamed my iPhone to “The Titanic”. Each time I connect it to iTunes, I see ‘The Titanic is syncing’!” hahah oh..the simple things.
@geoffgauthier I gotta bad feeling about that - if Wellwood gets signed in Phoenix, I bet he fills our net when we face them.
Twitter’s iPad app could be fixed by simply allowing a user to deselect a selected app by tapping on it. That’s what’s confusing people.
BrentButt If I had a secret room full of top secret stuff I wouldn’t have it connected to a huge air vent that’s big enough for people to crawl thru.

Gmail’s new Priority Inbox is cool, and it’s showing me just how little of the email I receive that I truly consider to be “important”. #fb
@shawnblanc If you don’t mind me asking, who should I be following for said email kung-fu discussions?
@aryayush Good point!
@geehoneybee Sorry dude - sounds like a rough week, eh?
Nice having a coffee expert in the office, to let me know if the decaf coffee pot really has decaf in it. (Lookin’ at you, @geoffgauthier)
I want to take a vacation to Epic Citadel. It’s beautiful there.
biorhythmist Going to a chess-themed barbecue this weekend.
ROOK OUT WITH YOUR COOKOUT
@aryayush And now your USB stick has a malware infection! :-)
I got my Priority Inbox on my work account at the end of the day today (inbox was already empty). Excited to see how it does tomorrow.
Hey @lorenb, Twitter for iPad is really growing on me. Any plans for syncing your position on iPhone / iPad / Mac versions?
ironicsans I need Ping like I need another social network.
Yikes. Somehow I had it in my head that it was Friday night. Oops.
@Ihnatko I find Twitter for iPad a little off-putting too. It’s gee-whiz neato, but a bit too clever for its own good.
@chockenberry Couldn’t agree more - the title bar change is nice, but the grey is… too grey. No visual cues.
Hey, @chartier - I just got the dreaded “The information on this page is outdated” error in iTunes 10.
dmoren “Hey, does this rag smell like chloroform to you?”
I’ve been getting a headache every afternoon this week. Finally realized I haven’t been drinking enough water… that’s probably it.
@emiliecole That makes sense, but Kara replied and told me it was intended as a joke. If it was, I didn’t (and still don’t) get it.
@geehoneybee Didn’t try it.
@geehoneybee Tried that Stanley Park Brewery beer you left at my place last night. You weren’t kidding about the aftertaste… Yikes!
@geoffgauthier Hughson’s good, but I’d have to go with Jim Robson. “Greg Adams, Greg Adams!”
Seriously Google… Please to be giving me with the Priority Inbox. I will be thanking with you for all times.
I guess I’m not hip enough to understand this new style of “joke”.
@karaswisher If the joke had been funny (or even obviously a joke), I would never have written that first comment. Sorry to have offended.
@karaswisher I was asking someone else who had already found the definition odd if they thought it was a joke and maybe I missed it.
I had a journalist for the Wall Street Journal tell me to “chillax”. What have you done this morning?
Apparently I have no sense of humor.
@karaswisher Fair enough, I guess, but it sure doesn’t read that way.
@aryayush Still seems like an odd choice. Readers have access to dictionaries too. Maybe she was trying to imply that Steve uses big words?
Anxiously waiting for Gmail’s magical new Priority Inbox feature to hit my Gmail accounts…
@leemathews Reading cover letters. They’re mostly awful!
“I have solved just about every problem that one may face.”
@leemathews That’s awesome! Sluggishness was the only real problem with the Pre, as far as I’ve heard. Cool that it’s not!
Just read, “I am a hard working individual, motivated by the knowledge of my skills and experience.” What does it mean?
@leemathews And I hear it’s hella fast… but has a small battery life issue. :-)
@bradlinder I sure hope so. It’s the only reason I jailbreak right now. LockInfo is way better than iOS’s standard notifications.
So both iOS 4.1 and 4.2 have been announced and previewed, and _still_ no fix for the awful notification system?
Pogue The world sure looks different when you’ve had a good night of sleep. I’ll bet half the decisions to start wars were made while exhasuted…
