@JimmySlims That looks delicious!

@geehoneybee You probably like your Slurpees warm too.

I’ve got wild staring eyes
And a strong urge to fly
But I’ve got nowhere to fly to
And that is how I know
When I try to get through
On the telephone to you
There’ll be nobody home
I’ve got electric light
And I’ve got second sight
Got amazing powers of observation
Sometimes I wish I lived in an era when we didn’t know that a diet of all hamburgers was be bad for you.
But then again… technology.
@iPhoneinCanada Good question; I’m worried it’s going to be days.
Netflix recommends a kid’s movie to me based on my having liked Adaptation, Lost in Translation, and Fight Club. What? http://t.co/nbdeTd0u
@kcase Whew! That’s great news, thanks!
@kcase In other words, is it no longer possible for OF to publish a reminder calendar to a WebDav address?
@kcase The current iCal functionality allows for reminders on iOS devices even when not having sync’d OF. Does this mean that’s gone?
@mistergoats You just blew yourself up and I won, but it’s still my turn. :-/
@mistergoats Pretty sure we’re out of sync yet again. :-/
@lexfri Point being, what’s to “celebrate” from the users’ perspective?
@lexfri Failure as an ongoing business, or as a product. Yes, the founders made out well, but it still leaves a bad taste in user’s mouths.
daveshumka Next time you call in sick, tell your boss you’re “down with the sickness.” Then yell “OOH-AH-AH-AH-AH,” ending in a crescendo of barf.
energy_project The physiological feeling of anger moves through you in under a minute. After that, it’s your choice whether to stay upset.
So @squarespace support is fantastic, as long as your site doesn’t have an actual problem. Then the issue gets escalated, and you wait days.
Updated @tweetbot for Mac, still doesn’t have decent keyboard navigation. PageUp/PageDown keys don’t do anything? Odd.
@mistergoats I didn’t want to ask, but who, who…
Who, who, WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?
mat At work last week, when someone said “Google just bought Sparrow” I let out a long “noooooooooooooooooooo”
It’s still going in my head
What’s your price for flight?
@chartier Sweet! Might have to get me a Sidekick. I hear those are pretty great.
@danielpunkass That’s what they tell themselves as they’re counting their millions and trying to justify it to themselves.
@drdrang As someone with a caffeine sensitivity, that sounds horrifying.
@chartier You’re going Windows 8 / Windows phone, aren’t you?
@jen_robbins Correct. Same for the Kindle app.
@mistergoats I can’t dance, I can’t talk; only thing about me is the way I walk.

Forgot to check my Gmail spam messages for almost a month. Found 28 non-spam messages in there. Oops.
@fpgeek What do you mean?
@fpgeek I agree - but companies see things in a very myopic way. I’m saying that current Google seems as nearsighted as MS was a decade ago.
@fpgeek And their track-record with acquisitions isn’t very strong, either… ;-)
@fpgeek That’s a good point. I guess it remains to be seen. My trust in Google’s motives isn’t terribly high.
Gmail : Android :: MS Office : Windows
Gmail is Google’s ace-in-the-hole, their way to make Android more desirable than iOS. Now, Sparrow.
@fpgeek Gmail : Android :: MS Office : Windows
Gmail is Google’s ace-in-the-hole, their way to make Android more desirable than iOS.
@fpgeek Google will be happy to have a sub-standard mobile web-wrapped version for iOS, and make the Android version kick-ass.
@iPhoneinCanada Yeah, but they’re not going to have a better experience available on iOS than is available on Android.
Google doesn’t acquire apps; they acquire people who make apps.
Then, they situate them in a large building labeled “Google+”
@ryan Not to kill it, to port it to Android.
@iPhoneinCanada Isn’t it more likely that Sparrow turns into Gmail for Android? Google has no incentive to strengthen their iOS offerings.
@viticci Neither. Sparrow’s dead, and Android’s Gmail gets some new features.
I think it’s far more likely that Google wants Sparrow’s features for an Android Gmail app than for an iOS one.
@viticci The Sparrow announcement says no new features; isn’t it reasonable to assume Sparrow for iOS is now dead?
@chartier Reading between the lines, Sparrow for iOS is dead.
@mistergoats After reading it, I bet you wish it was.
@siracusa Sixth paragraph starts with, “I have never been a fan.” Kind of invalidates his opinion: What a surprise, he doesn’t like Newsroom

@mistergoats We must have gone through 3 or 4, but with each kid we the urgency to replace them when they broke decreased.

@chartier Wow, great news! Today is my last day to sign up after being in the beta (and get the 50% discount), so now I definitely will. Thx
Apparently Twitter Trends aren’t working for some users. How do I get added into that group?
Awesome how @rbc can’t be bothered to call and let us know our card has been compromised and they’ve shut it down. Embarrassing for my wife.
@mistergoats I like you a lot, but I wouldn’t say I’m a “fan”.
AmyJane During a shuffle, I got halfway through “Play Your Guitar with Murray” before realizing I was listening to The Wiggles. Kinda digging it.

@jsnell I’ve got Keyboard Maestro set up to let me use hotkeys to view lists in Twitteriffic, maybe something similar would work here?
So, @tweetbot for Mac. First thought: good, but sorely lacking keyboard shortcuts. Shouldn’t ever need to lift my hands from the keyboard.
Yes, that’s right. “a massive wildfires”.
Holy crap; the smog we’re experiencing is actually smoke from a massive wildfires in Siberia! http://t.co/HQ9NYyjL
@mistergoats This tweet makes me wonder what tweets actually trigger your filter to the point that you decide not to post them?
@JimmySlims Went to the driving range yesterday, with the family. Was a hoot, but not playing certainly hasn’t helped my shot.
Dropped off our PVR and cable box at @shawhelp this weekend, and canceled cable TV. Feels great!
@Glen_Trainor Days or hours?
@ttscoff I have CrashPlan set to pause when SuperDuper runs, for whatever that’s worth…

@ttscoff Don’t worry, it’s creepy in a _good_ way.
@ttscoff I love that they used your Twitter avatar as the header image!
My buddy Tim retweeted that last one, and it made me laugh, so…
itsWillyFerrell There’s no “i” in “team.” But there’s an “i” in “Tim,” and my friend Carlos pronounces it “team” so… there you go.

@danfrakes Oh, of course; it’s not bringing in the entire OS! I’m used to old fashioned cloning. Now I don’t feel so worried. :-)
@danfrakes Oh, and my condolences re: the iPad.
@danfrakes But everything _seems_ in order. Odd, but hey, I’ll take it. Thanks for the tip!
@danfrakes So far worked remarkably well. I’m concerned that the drive I imported from had ~100GB of data on it, and only 60GB imported.
@geehoneybee Wow, it was that bad, eh? Yikes. Sorry we missed it though. Ended up spending the day with grandparents.
@danfrakes Is there a way to get a Superduper! cloned drive from a 5 year old MBP to boot on a new MBA, or a useful workaround?
I never need to translate a tweet. I’d rather if @tweetbot would underline two capitalized words in a row and link it to an image search.
C’mon Italia, let’s do this.
