@pmgomez Now that’s just ridiculous. All that overhead! :P

via Twitter for iPad in reply to pmgomez

@pmgomez The Mac version doesn’t have that.

via Twitter for iPad in reply to pmgomez

I miss the old Skype interface (pre-version 5). The new one wastes a lot of space, and reduces usability.

@meggykawsek @richtuason @xtauymatiao Need money… Pero, sige, goal na yun. :D Hahaha.

@xtauymatiao Pardon me, I just enjoy annoying you. :P

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

@meggykawsek In other words, it’s business time? (I’m sorry.)

via Echofon in reply to meggykawsek

@cammercheanger it’s in the iMac, if you know how to set it up. :)

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to cammercheanger

@cammercheanger Around 2 maybe. But I’m going to the office. What’s up?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to cammercheanger

@cammercheanger I’m sorry, the server at home is downloading stuff. I can throttle it from here if you like.

@xtauymatiao I blame you. After all, you kept inviting people to go visit you in China. When I do show up, you’re not there. :P

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

@xtauymatiao @richtuason @meggykawsek Which is why you should come back soon, and why we should all go do something fun when you do! :D

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

I love the copywriting on the menu of Kanin Club. It more than makes up for the lack of design or pictures.

Off to @richtuason’s place in the south with @meggykawsek. Roadtrip!

@glencharles I think WiFi-only, but I’m not sure. And well… that’s life; there’s no one perfect thing. ;)

via Twitter for iPad in reply to glencharles

@glencharles Next month, $499 for 16GB. Very competitive with iPad2, actually. No idea about local pricing/availability, though

via Twitter for iPad in reply to glencharles

@glencharles pretty good piece of kit if you’re an Android fan. I’m an iOS guy, though.

Samsung announces 10 inch, 2560x1600px 300dpi screen. Future retina display for iPad3/Galaxy Tab? PenTile sucks, tho… http://gizmo.do/jmNlxT

via Echofon

@richtuason I kinda agreed to it a month ago, and kinda owe it to them. But yes, @levi_io is still lamer. ;)

via Echofon in reply to richtuason

@levi_io @richtuason Actually, I’d really love to go to either (or both! lol), but can’t because I’m helping w/ AVP playback at this concert

via Echofon in reply to levi_io

@richtuason @levi_io @kennethgyu I’m perfectly happy with them not knowing. *ahem*

via Echofon in reply to richtuason

@yapsestagle Ha! Well, I’m sorry to have offended you, then. :P

@levi_io @meggykawsek Actually, what I like most about it is the sound design; particularly the chimes that accompany the textual responses.

The HTML5 “Chrome version” of Angry Birds is smoother in IE9 (win) and Safari (mac). Hardware acceleration, Google? chrome.angrybirds.com

You can’t say “yes” to everyone.

Still not sold, but this is a really cute intro video nonetheless: http://youtu.be/TVqe8ieq…

I’m not totally sold on the Chromebook, but the subscription model for business/schools is interesting. ~$20/mo, with hardware upgrades (!)

@meggykawsek not at a computer right now. You can just email me. :)

@meggykawsek what kind? (app/game/web?) I don’t really freelance that… but you can just email me, if ever :)

via Twitter for iPad in reply to meggykawsek

@richtuason but interface and interaction design is fun and exciting! :D

via Twitter for iPad in reply to richtuason

@meggykawsek Hey, don’t sweat it, you were pretty stressed at the time, but things went pretty smoothly regardless! Good job :)

morgan_murphy I usually don’t mind sportsmanship, but there have been more hugs in this fight than in my entire childhood.

Dear PLDT Watchpad, we’re already on the top DSL plan. Give me the high-quality stream of the fight. -_-

I may have done poorly in the run (no surprise), but I won in the raffle! (cop-out? lol.) So did @levi_io and Vince. Thanks @meggykawsek! :)

via Tweetbot for iOS

I actually got up early for this run thing, but my family slept in. Now there’s a first.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Don’t forget to give your mom a hug today. ☺

Oh, that’s nice. Ateneo sent a letter with birthday greetings. ‘course, it also plugged scholarship funds and arrived late, but that’s fine.
