Video: Street Skiing – it’s hard to imagine what that is, but it’s exactly what you’re thinking. And this… http://t.co/Sq9TCJiL
Wow, does Google ever want us to be using Google+. Blech. http://t.co/QKlGSnyx
@geoffgauthier What about spandex UNDER ripped jeans? Problem solved.
I’ve been using their service for two years now, and @TripIt still seems like magic when it automatically imports my itinerary.

I disabled Flash in my Chrome browser a couple of hours ago, and my misbehaving MacBook Pro ain’t misbehavin’ any more.

Pretty sure a bank near my house was held up this afternoon. Cop car at the bank, and many more racing around nearby, sirens sometimes on.
@geehoneybee Well, you know - here and there. Like when my province’s team has a chance at the championship.
Je m’apelle fatigué.
So fricken tired!
@danfrakes Didn’t see Bose on either the headphone or speaker guide; too expensive, low quality, or…?
It sure doesn’t take long to go from feeling on top of everything to feeling completely out of control.
@frankieclarke Smiles! :-)

@Seanfunk Never used one, never needed one. Just dedicate one of your front pockets to the phone.
@geoffgauthier Your dummy account name could be Fester Shenanigans.
@geoffgauthier Guess who got hisself a nitro ball in SSG last night?
I knew Fun Dip wasn’t good for you, but its pH level is that close to battery acid?! http://t.co/XRHfF6Sz
@Glen_Trainor I can do something about that.
@hotdogsladies I seriously never get tired of the “axe you a question” bit. I’d love an (okay, another) entire episode of just that. Really!
@parislemon You need to uninstall the old one to get the new one? How did Google manage to screw up basic iOS app installation/upgrade?
@chartier Pretty sure Netflix wants families to purchase multiple accounts for family members. Never gonna happen.
@jsnell Worth checking out Downcast. Seems to fly under the radar, but much better than Podcaster and Instacast, IMHO.
@geoffgauthier Is that a complaint, or just an observation?
My kids have been taking turns being sick for the past 5 days. I’m experiencing levels of sleep deprivation I didn’t think were possible.
@SlvrLambStudios Might need to wait another month or two then.
@geehoneybee Hey - if you guys are in town, come on out to Fran’s birthday party tomorrow night!
@inkedmn Your best bet is to uncheck Music in iTunes for our iPhone, sync, then check it again, and sync again. A pain, but it’ll work.
My lovely wife’s birthday falls tomorrow, on 11/11/11 day.
My 6 year-old is sick, like awful flu sick. Tears my heart out seeing him suffering.
@ttscoff Ouch, so sorry.
@ttscoff Curious, were you using TextMate’s ‘save files when focus is lost’ option? If not, I expect you have a good reason. Bummer dude.
@Glen_Trainor That maple syrup is dangerous stuff.
@simplicitybliss Hi Sven - it looks like the URL in your last tweet is a broken Instapaper link… any chance you could re-post it?
Is @TheSiriPort legit? I just tried it, but all I get is Voice Control.
@JimmySlims Haha - that freaked me out for a sec.

Yay, @googlereader is slightly de-uglified!
This will be the last time for about 5 months that I drive home from work while it’s still light out.

I keep checking Google Reader to see if Google has decided to un-uglify it.
@fpgeek If the underdog attitude got them to the top, they’d better keep it.
@fpgeek The good thing is that when it comes to computers and technology, dominance is fleeting.
@fpgeek I’m just a guy who needs to get shit done. And for me, they do.
@fpgeek Haha. Oh well; I guess the difference between us is that I believe Apple more than Google has my best interests at heart.
@fpgeek On the other hand, Apple’s swimming hard to catch up. I’m starting to see the day that I no longer use Gmail for my email. Yikes.
@fpgeek I used to be a huge Google proponent, but lately I’m not liking the changes they’re making, and feeling underserved by them.
@fpgeek Google’s web services beat Apple’s, Apple’s devices beat Google’s.
@fpgeek Yeah, I guess so. It’s a shame though; instead of getting best of breed from both, I’m forced to choose.
@fpgeek Ahh, but it’s a balance that includes so much more, like elegance and usability.
@fpgeek Hard to say. Apple likes to leverage their position, but usually not to the detriment of customers’ user experience. We’ll see.
@fpgeek Yeah. iBooks isn’t doing that great; if it fails to catch on, Apple will be forced to back down on that one.
Just have to make sure not to drop any lyrics into my document…
Apparently listening to GnR Appetite for Destruction really loud is good for my productivity when writing technical documents.
The only thing worse than Apple fans are Google fans.
@IanGClifton If the device gets the majority of the features from the new OS, it’s not obsolete. If not or it can’t get updated, it is.
@IanGClifton I consider a device obsolete when it reaches a point where it cannot or will not receive an update to the latest OS version.
@IanGClifton To each their own I guess, if that’s important to you. I prefer a phone that’s not obsolete the day I buy it.
@IanGClifton That’s still far better than not having the option of running updated OS versions.
@IanGClifton There’s no server load reason Google couldn’t make a decent Gmail client for iOS. I’d rather they not bother than release crap.
@Glen_Trainor I just sent you a challenge!
@Glen_Trainor You’re still playing Draw Race?
@IanGClifton The latest iOS runs on the last three generations of hardware. Compare that to Android.
@IanGClifton Siri only on iPhone 4S is a business decision, both to encourage upgrades and to attenuate demand on the Siri servers.

@fpgeek The buy button removal? Refresh my memory…
@fpgeek That’s true. But for now stuck with having to choose, it’s an easy choice for me.
@fpgeek And most regular (non-geek) users will prefer that, too.
@fpgeek OK. I’ll take the complete lack of viruses and malware, higher average quality of apps, UI consistency, etc. the app store offers.
@fpgeek Apple prefers to make their user’s lives easier (that’s their competitive advantage). When things aren’t, often it’s the carriers.
@fpgeek Sure, but that’s not unique to iPhones. In daily use, the app review process makes my life easier as a user.
@fpgeek Yeah, and that’s a shame. It’s those same powerful rules, though, that make my iOS experience so enjoyable and trouble-free.
@fpgeek True. I suspect it has more to do with competing in the mobile space than Apple’s review process though. Everybody loses!
@fpgeek Sure, but Google also shares a lot of users with Apple. Surely it’s worth it for them to deliver a good experience. So far, not one.
@fpgeek There is a metric buttload of great iOS apps out there. Not a single one from Google is one of them.
@leeroyholmes Google’s iOS apps are awful. Android gets true native apps, iOS gets buggy, slow web views.
Gizmodo on Gmail for iPhone: “It’s a slower, buggier, uglier web app. What the fuck, Google?” http://t.co/JfpgEeIT
Google treating iOS users as second-class citizens doesn’t make me want to consider using Android more, it makes me want to use Google less.

hotdogsladies I started as a Google evangelist.
Later, I felt like a customer.
Soon, I felt like their product.
Today, I just feel like their stooge.
I know my kids love me, but they could show it best by letting me sleep through the night.
@gmail How about pulling the app because it’s just a crappy skinned web view, and release it when it’s a true native app?
I was so excited for the @gmail native iOS app. What a pile of shit. A skinned web view? I love Gmail, and this just pisses me off.
@Glen_Trainor Who doesn’t?
@gmail When does Google Apps get it?
Weirdest wrong number I’ve received yet: someone from South Carolina trying to reach a sanitarium.
