I think we spoke too much. Haha.

We’ll be on soon :) Net 25, homepage.

The Nintendo 3DS’ feature set is pretty impressive. Seems they have their sights set on the iDevices. http://j.mp/bOAhfk

@rginedav you can also find a lot of similar efforts here! I’ll look forward to those entries, though. :)

@Renaissance_R no! :)) Kenneth, from @byimplication. Haha. We’ll be taking about our game Wildfire :)

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to ralphilario

I should also mention that Kenneth and I will be on Net25’s Homepage (show, not a site, lol) tomorrow at 8am. I think. So check it out :)

@taipanjob I certainly hope so. competition is good, and I’m sure apple/hp/etc will respond in kind.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to DragonTaipan

So BlackBerry is making a tablet too, the PlayBook. Very good hardware specs, but it’s software that matters. Let’s see. http://j.mp/cJ8dAb

I hate insomnia and restlessness. (this new phone isn’t helping either, haha.)

via Twitter for iPhone

@tjmanotoc Yeah, me too, but I meant it probably doesnt apply here if its not in the local store. (Maybe you can ship it to a friend in US?)

via Echofon in reply to tjmanotoc

@tjmanotoc I don’t think it applies here. I have both a US and PH iTunes acct, and the iPhone 4 Case Program app isn’t in the local store.

via Echofon in reply to tjmanotoc

“Emergency Bra.” It turns into two face masks. I don’t know what to make of this. http://j.mp/arz2ip

While iTunes won’t sync 1080p H264 files, the iPhone 4 hardware can actually decode/play 1080p if you transfer them via other means.

There’s actually a Pierce quotes twitter page. The one mentioned in Community S2/E01 :)) http://twitter.com/oldwh…

@danmatutina looks awesome! I like the NES zapper, mat, and power glove gathering dust. :)

via Echofon in reply to danmatutina

Now I can sync HD content to my phone. Not that it’s practical… (though an HDMI adaptor in the future would be awesome.)

via Echofon

@danmatutina Yeah, today is the launch, I think.

via Echofon in reply to danmatutina

… well, turns out I don’t have to chop it up. thanks globe :)

@yapsestagle And you’re only getting 2.1, right? Not froyo?

A blind user’s experience with the iPhone: http://bit.ly/9luk8h (from @omeron23. his other posts as a blind tech user are also interesting.)

via Echofon

Actually, maybe it wasn’t our fault at all. Several other sites on the same hosting provider (@a2hosting) got affected.

via Echofon

Sigh. Remember to sanitize your inputs. http://xkcd.com/327/ (not strictly the same thing, but close enough.)

via Echofon

@rginedav I gave Harvey some space for his site on our server. The software he uses (indexhibit) has a security hole which was exploited.

via Echofon in reply to reginebdavid

Okay, so our website got hacked. (exploit happened through a friend’s site hosted on the same acct. guess I’ll be less generous.)

To showcase IE9’s support of web standards, Microsoft commissioned top designers to create these: http://lostworldsfairs.c… Amazing work!

via Echofon

@marionjames05 Thanks for inviting us! It was our pleasure as well. :) We should meet up again sometime.

via Echofon in reply to marionjames05

@marionjames05 Yup! Wil, Kenneth, and I should be able to go. Levi can’t make it, though. See you tomorrow!

via TweetDeck in reply to marionjames05

@danmatutina If this is from CAPES, I think @levi_io may have done this.

via Echofon in reply to danmatutina

Insomnia. I hate lying awake in bed, mind wandering about, unable to fall sleep despite being really tired.

46 hours spent already. Hrgh.

Downloading Recettear from Steam now :) There goes my weekend…

@marionjames05 I’ll tell the rest of @byimplication, and let you know! :) and i’m small. (sounds wrong out of context. haha.)

via TweetDeck

@marionjames05 Oh? I think I should be :) What time and where?

If I already pre-ordered a game (paid already), & am just waiting for it to unlock, is it acceptable to download a leaked coited

Stupid Paypal. Why do you ask for a verification code in a statement from 11 months ago? -_-

The app review guidelines are pretty frank: http://bit.ly/bhmimV

via Echofon

Apple changes their mind on the restriction of iOS/iPhone development tools, and publishes app review guidelines. Great news!

The item shop is a staple of many RPGs, but Recettear is a game that places you on the other side, as an item shop owner. http://is.gd/eXmTK

… and I love it. If you like RPGs, give the Recettear demo a shot: http://is.gd/eXnaW

@VLCicon It’d be nice if you supported ordered chapters in MKV files, but I should probably bug your developers instead. ;)

via Echofon in reply to VLCicon

I am incredibly amused by the conversations between these icons. (@itunes10icon, @VLCicon, @FacebookIcon, @Windows95Icon, etc.)

It’s @levi_io ‘s birthday today. Go greet him!
