IP delivery != cloaking! Even Google does it: google.com looks different dependent on the IP location. http://bit.ly/z9Tks

Note to self: loops iterating over an index ‘i’ work best if from time to time this very iterator ‘i’ gets incremented.

Most users don’t get (why should they?). If an app takes too long to load data, they’ll just hard-reload - and rightly so! fix?

via Echofon

.@LordofGoats, @akoch:”Do native app only if u need native features”*What if u wanna sell=>Web app cant sell=>Embed Web “app” in native app?

via Echofon

If you do &ahone co-development, do you write all native, or use a Web “app” embedded in a Webkit object as common back-end?

via Echofon

I <3 . Thought of ways to code expandable box. Then realized: can be done w/ a Tree, a root TreeItem & the actual box TreeItem (5 lines)

Wondering how will deal w/ the sudden presence of ? => The correct way if you use the meta tag: http://tr.im/zu9c

Can you benefit from scrapers? http://tr.im/ztRQ => In most cases scraping won’t hurt you. Simply put links to your own page on it.

@stroughtonsmith Hope you’ll share the results of theRSS reader survey?! Most popular feed reader, most wanted feature, that kind of stats.

via Nambu in reply to stroughtonsmith

@BinaryJunkie Good luck, dude :-) Saw my tweet w/ the known issues? No showstoppers, tho… Have fun!

via Echofon in reply to BinaryJunkie

Known issues on 3.1 : no tethering b/o signed carrier bundles & carrier name missing. See update 2 & 3: http://tr.im/yPTw

via Nambu

@NambuCom Hmmm, so why not stick to the old interface? Or more intuitively even: make the plus/minus signs directly after the search term?

via Nambu in reply to foodio

@NambuCom Another suggestion: the blue plus sign to permanently save searches should be at the search box, not the filter box in my opinion.

via Nambu in reply to foodio

@NambuCom Happy w/ the beta program improvements so far! One suggestion: can we get copy&paste for the tweets?

@vinoaj This was my assumption as well when I discussed this option w/ @jos_tweets.

Cruising back to Hamburg. Speed limit of 120km/h in NL is lame, disallowing trucks from overtaking each other would be the > security win!
