@cammercheanger There’s literally just one wall separating us. I can actually hear you typing, you know.

Zynga (creators of Farmville) is now worth more than Electronic Arts. Hrm. http://goo.gl/Ym4V

Pixar developed a version of their RenderMan software on Windows Azure; offer rendering service to small studios via the cloud. Woah.

Happy birthday @xtauymatiao! :) (and @hirika, who did not wish to be greeted yesterday)

via Echofon

Easily access the Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr/etc. accounts of those on the same wifi as you, with Firesheep: http://goo.gl/U8Cx (omg it works)

via Echofon

We can’t keep the rabbits once they’re done with the project though, so does anyone want one? Haha.

via Twitter for iPhone

So, my sister & her classmates have this science research thing, and now there are twelve rabbits at hocute http://twitpic.com/30fyqp

Scientists say “difficult-to-read fonts” improve learning. (I hope there’s more to it than simply that, or I will be sad) http://goo.gl/8r6s

via Echofon

@hirika … and do you think he’d say something like that? haha.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to carauymatiao

@hirika I don’t think he’s the type to have one. (but it’s true that there will be a mac app store)

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to carauymatiao

@hirika No, it’s one of those joke accounts. :))

The software “recovery disc” bundled w/ the new MacBook Air is just a small USB flash disk. I’d like this trend continue. http://goo.gl/dZ3t

Not too sure about new UI elements/direction in OS X Lion, but they still have a year to iterate through. http://www.apple.com/mac…

via Echofon

@dmartinng They usually update the site right after the event is done, so you may have to wait :P

via Echofon in reply to dmartinng

I love how they nailed the stereotypes for the one-click movie trailers. And no rendering. I used to wait hours for this.

via Echofon

@dmartinng Heh, good for you. I recall using iMovie 4 on an iMac G4. (800Mhz!)

via Echofon in reply to dmartinng

dang, the new iMovie ’11 would’ve been so awesome back in high school. though arguably… it’s still awesome.)

via Echofon

@xanderKhan It’s more business planning/management thing, though. Another such title is Segagaga, an old game for the Dreamcast.

via Echofon in reply to xanderKhan

@xanderKhan yeah, Game Dev Story. (for iPhone)

via Echofon in reply to xanderKhan

Game Dev Story: another timesink. Should stop playing a game about making games, and actually work on one. (as we do have pending projects…)

via Echofon

I do hope that wasn’t referring to me.

via Echofon

Dead Rising 2 is bloody awesome (pun unintended), but it’s a terrible timesink. Where did my weekend go?

via Echofon

RT @levi_io: cool doohickey by the Associated Press. Displays news in a gorgeous timeline, and coded in HTML5. <3 http://html5.labs.ap.org/

Water droplets bouncing off a superhydrophobic (water-repellant) carbon nanotube surface, in slo-mo http://goo.gl/obQd

via Echofon

@hirika Okay, fair enough. :P I don’t trust optical media (DVDs/CDs) for long-term backup though, especially if they’re cheap cd-r king ones

via Echofon in reply to carauymatiao

@hirika Isn’t the phone support only 90 days? Or you got AppleCare? (And cmd-opt-P-R means reset Parameter Ram. I could’ve told you that. :)

via Echofon in reply to carauymatiao

@hirika You had to call them for that? :/

via Echofon in reply to carauymatiao

Brothers Burger is 50% off tomorrow http://bit.ly/92HVw0

@geanutorres reports say that it doesn’t :( sorry. but then the 3GS doesn’t have a front camera anyway…

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to geanutorres

Yahoo! Messenger for iPhone gets video calling, but unfortunately phone to computer video doesn’t work w/ Mac. (worked well w/ Windows, tho)

via Echofon

So, tethering with my phone over 3G is faster than DSL. PLDT, you suck.

via Twitter Web Client

reading the Windows Phone 7 liveblog on @engadget - http://bit.ly/biAle4 - connection too slow for the live feed.

via Echofon

@Renaissance_R ah yes, I more or less got that. I was merely expressing my surprise that such a curious law exists.

via Echofon in reply to ralphilario

Apparently, if you catch your spouse or daughter “in the act,” it’s legal for you to kill the interloper. What. http://goo.gl/sSrH

It would be cool if Banksy actually snuck the Simpsons opening into the episode, instead of working with them. http://goo.gl/phrI

So both @GeohotUS &a@chronicdevteamteam are releasing their own separate jailbreaks. Too bad one of them can’t be saved for the next iPhone/iPad

@yapsestagle not happening soon; too much work involved, unfortunately. I’m a little surprised at the number of requests for one, though.

@xanderKhan you click restart and nothing happens? Or it tries to restart and it freezes while doing so?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to xanderKhan

@xanderKhan You double clicked the .pkg inside the .dmg? What did it tell you?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to xanderKhan

@xtauymatiao mhrm, okay. Good to know. :) I look forward to that giant brick! (and I hope you don’t finish all those series/movies/anime :P)

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

@xtauymatiao Oh, I’m sorry. I only told him once. :/ Do you see him often? I thought he was trying to be a recluse, or something like that.

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

@xtauymatiao Hahaha. Yay! Stamps! :D Hope you’re doing well (and aren’t being too wild! ;)

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

@xtauymatiao am I getting a brick from the great wall? :D

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

LightSpace seems to use IR-based depth sensing. Will look forward to Kinect hacks (cheap IR depth camera), like what happened w/ the Wiimote

via Echofon

Looks like Kinect-style tech. Hmm. RT @danmatutina: Microsoft Research’s LightSpace: http://youtu.be/xx5kBqxy… Looks really good. Wow. :)
