via Echofon

learnings: 1 shortie 1 preso seems to be the max people can consume after a whole work day. Give people time for dinner before

via Echofon

Laughter in the audience when @trajenc mentions the deployment limit of 200/day in AppEngine. Seems not to be a deal-breaker ;-)

via Nambu

Anyone else (3)? => 1.2.1 (3460) Tweets can only be selected and copied as a whole, you can’t freely select parts of tweets. Annoying

via Nambu

Anyone else (2)? => 1.2.1 (3460) tweet list scrolled all up, but randomly when new tweets arrive, the list’d scroll down. Annoying…

via Nambu

Anyone else? => 1.2.1 (3460) works +/- fine, only saved searches turn up as unread after each relaunch. Already readded Twitter acct.

via Nambu

Thx to the AppleStore on 9th ave & all the Starbucks for granting me WiFi asylum. Lots of open WiFis all o#NYC. http://twitpic.com/7omo6

via Echofon

Obviously missed Cycorder, and to some extent Backgrounder and MobileSubstrate in my list of 1/2-obsolete apps. Are there more?

via Echofon

Props to the coders of the now (FW 3.0) almost obsolete apps: QuickGold, Clippy, PdaNet, SwirlyMMS. You guys made the iPhone perfect

In Europe bars often make you pay each drink as it gets served. In they take your credit card in the 1st place to “keep your tap open”.

via Echofon

Making slow progress with for v2009. This http://tr.im/oRBm is blocking me a bit

via Nambu

Personal annoyance: there is no File -> New File. Thank God there is NuFile, discussed at http://tr.im/oPL3. Good software!

@BinaryJunkie Search this 1 crazy thing in you. World champion in solving rubic’s cube? Tell them. Won the maths olympics? Tell them => USP.

If you’re in & if

via Echofon

If I twitted each SOAP fault I get “Fault occurred while processing” would be before “Goodnight” @ weekly TwitterTrends

via Nambu

PHP5 native SOAP (http://tr.im/oF0P) is ridiculously poorly documented. Thank God there’s http://tr.im/oF0O. Portin to native SOAP!

via Nambu

Via @vinoaj: @chanezon debugging during a preso is totally normal. He usually codes until 2min before the preso starts & the night before:-)

@BinaryJunkie Hi Louis. Jailbreakin turns your phone into a computer. On 3.0 I’d definitely wait for the official dev team JB. No drawbacks!

via Echofon in reply to BinaryJunkie

A good “make secure” tutorial is right on Cydia’s home tab: Open SSH Acces How-to => Changing the default Password (at the very end)

via Echofon

Jailbreaking the is easy. Getting it secure not so much (for the non-geek user), but I just got the prove that it’s time well spent.

via Echofon

Some1 failed to hack my jailbroken via the open WiFi. If you have a jailbr. device, install Terminal, then “passwd” for root&mobile.

via Echofon

@ 5th ave Apple Store.Looks cool from out.Inside it’s just another store.Not gonna replace my MacBookPro/iPhone3G. http://twitpic.com/7irb3.

via Echofon

Maybe I’m too European for NY: went to http://www.apple.com/ret… to check Apple Store opening hours, just to find it’s 24/365.

via Nambu

, iPass Connect app & NYC density of Starbucks make a perfect team to avoid T-Mobile DE data roaming fees (EDGE at most anyways) :-P

via Echofon

One thing about NY I don’t like: the smell of the hot pretzels stands. Not sure if it’s the smell of the pretzels, or the stinky mini-oven.

via Echofon

Just testified a commercial production at the crossing of Broad and William Street. NY Stock Exchange next. http://twitpic.com/7e32m

via Echofon

@BinaryJunkie Hi Louis! If you have any special not-so-obvious tourist hints, please let me know. Loving NY so far. Cheers, Tom.

via Echofon

Either it’s all official&legal, or all the same black market mafia: I<3NY shirt dealers charge the same price everywhere. $3 for the white.

via Echofon

Land of the free? “Expect airport-like security checks” for boardin the ferry to the statue of liberty? No thx. My cam has a good zoom lens!

via Echofon

via Echofon

Sat morning chuckle: airport security just shoke down a magician. Normal looking guy, but bag full of cylinder hat, balls, & rose rabbits :)

@gfxmonk Thx for the Wiki link on Google Code. I’ll try to work on a mock, but after next week (http://tr.im/okXg). It’s 2:26 AM in Hamburg.

via Nambu in reply to gfxmonk

@gfxmonk Could you maybe create refresh & a push status buttons as in http://tr.im/okT0. “Reload in TL” = refresh, “Open PV” = push status?

via Nambu in reply to gfxmonk

@gfxmonk How about combinin the two first tabs w/ the stories & the refresh into one tab? Settings on the 2nd tab can go, well, in settings.

via Nambu in reply to gfxmonk

@gfxmonk Thanks! Will try to “invert” the CSS :-) Maybe add backgr.color as a setting? Thing is: battery-saving dark screen & black bg = no.

via Nambu in reply to gfxmonk

@mattcutts stated wrong in http://tr.im/okCf ? SEO-wise no, tech-wise yes. <3 @nelson’s URL struct () http://tr.im/okE0

via Nambu

OMG, right ahead us, error-502’ing, and my pizza resembling a carbon cracker. Definitely not the most promising day.

via Echofon

via Echofon

Landed in Ryanair’s “Hamburg”-Bremen airport. Embarassing Germans wearing their Ramblas souvenirs: Mexican sombreros. It’s just plain wrong!

Hey Twitter, it’s iPhone 3G S, not iPhone 3GS ()! The ‘s’ stands for speed. Besides this it’s still just a huge disappointment :-(
