  • 02:47 Congrats TiVo! RT @tivodesign: TiVo DVR named by Engadget as one of the 10 gadgets that defined the decade! #
  • 02:47 A new TiVo? I'm shocked, shocked I say. ;-) RT @davezatz: Diagrams of TiVo's next DVR?! The "Premiere" - #
  • 03:05 @bigepaz PIXAR movies have been doing that for as long as I can recall - Production Babies or somesuch. #
  • 03:26 Looks good , I still love my Droid. RT @engadget: Nexus One trounces 3D benchmark, gets caught in high-res photoshoot #
  • 03:27 @pnkrcklibrarian Are they actual homosexual oil field workers? ;-) #
  • 03:39 I'm a lot more depressed/upset about missing CES this year than I thought I'd be... tempted to use miles to fly out just for the weekend. #
  • 03:39 But I didn't pre-reg, so it'd cost me a pretty penny to get in now. #
  • 04:09 @pjrodriguez I think it is too late to register for free now - and I haven't been an active blogger most of this y ear to be honest. #
  • 04:10 @pjrodriguez I really want to go, but I'm not mainly due to money. I make less at my current job than my last one, with higher commute costs #
  • 04:24 That missing section of downspout turned up. I spotted it against the fence in the neighbors yard. No sign of the bottle or recycling bin. #
  • 04:49 Looking forward to tonight. Nancy is coming over this afternoon, then we're heading to Northampton for the NYE TMBG show! Staying the night. #
  • 05:32 @chiieddy I've seen that a few places now, sounds like it'll be like the iPhone - specific plans for that phone . #
  • 09:21 How did I miss this - TiVo HD is available in Canada: Very limited, one cable MSO, but it is a start. #
  • 09:25 I wonder when we'll see cars built with USB ports built-in as power outlets instead of the 'lighter' power port? More useful to have USB. #
  • 09:29 I know, some cars already have inverters and 120V/60Hz outlets, but a brace of USB ports would be useful for gadgets. #
  • 09:34 Random thought - Anyone putting QR codes on their business cards yet? Seems like a great idea to me, I'll have to pitch it to work... #
  • 09:58 @RunwayGirl I'm 6'6" and built big. Even when I was in great shape I weighed 300-330# (now I'm a non-in-great-shape 400#). Airline = pain. #
  • 10:02 Concept for an #Android App I don't have the chops to write - displays any entry in your contacts as a QR Code on the screen to share. #
  • 10:07 I'm a moron, I see Google is ahead of me and the Contacts app does that under Share -> Bardcode Scanner. Thanks @chiieddy. :-) #
  • 10:08 @DaleDietrich Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile are all moving to LTE - Sprint is WiMax - but still not clear there will be one LTE standard. #
  • 10:09 @DaleDietrich Or that they'll be on the same frequency - the issue with 3G for AT&T and T-Mobile is they use different freqs - phones do one #
  • 10:10 @blam GPS. Separate PDA. Partially replaced my laptop (need to carry/use it less). Partially replaced my camera - for casual shots. #
  • 10:11 @djpaulie Unfortunately I was educated after posting that - the built-in Contacts app does that, at least on my Droid. #
  • 10:13 @DaleDietrich Not may (if any?) chipsets support both T-Mobile & AT&T 3G freqs. T-Mobile uses freqs common to most of the world. #
  • 10:15 @DaleDietrich That's likely why the Nexus does 3G on T-Mob and not AT&T - same hardware will do 3G in most countries. AT&T 3G not so much. #
  • 10:21 @DaleDietrich Still different freqs: Fall-back is up to the device, supposed to work but we'll see. #
  • 10:23 @Kajivar Living Dead Girl! (I'm partial to the Subliminal Seduction Mix.) #
  • 10:24 @DaleDietrich GSM quad-band pretty much covers it all - 3G/LTE a bit more diverse, not as common for broad compatibility. #
  • 10:25 @DaleDietrich Until there are more chipsets that support more 3G/LTE freqs, this will be a common issue - costs too much to use multi-chips. #
  • 10:26 @DaleDietrich And in the US most people don't care as they buy phones from carriers with a contract. Too expensive not to. #
  • 10:27 @DaleDietrich I'd rather get my Droid for $200 with a contract than $500-600 without. #
  • 10:29 @DaleDietrich The way pricing is, you get shafted trying to go contract-less. Not worth it. #
  • 10:30 @DaleDietrich Month-to-month plans mostly suck compare to contracts in the US, price-wise, and you pay more for hardware too. #
  • 10:33 @clunkclunk Yeah - a plug-in USB converter has next to no parts, plug-in inverters are a lot more complex. #
  • 10:33 @DaleDietrich The only real advantage I see to being contractless is switching carriers without an ETF. But most people don't switch often. #
  • 10:36 @DaleDietrich True - but the best network is CDMA (Verizon), even if the phone were unlocked and contractless it would be moot. #
  • 10:37 @DaleDietrich T-Mobile may be better, but they have the smallest network of the for 'majors'. #
  • 10:38 @DaleDietrich Maybe LTE will change this - if everything works as promised and we get more multi-freq LTE chipsets. Unless you're on Sprint. #
  • 10:42 @DaleDietrich Sprint is rolling out WiMax instead of LTE, and so far have said they don't have LTE plans - but that may change. #
  • 10:43 @DaleDietrich I think Sprint are idiots for not going LTE - their customers will get shafted without roaming ability to LTE carriers. #
  • 10:48 @DaleDietrich Mobile WiMax is a standard, slightly different from fixed WiMax but the same basic thing. LTE & WiMax have a lot in common too #
  • 10:48 @DaleDietrich Maybe - but they operate in different freq bands, making chip/antenna design a pain. #
  • 10:49 @ctash When in 3G they seem to be pretty good, comparable to what I'd seen on AT&T 3G. AT&T has faster areas, but they're small overall. #
  • 10:50 @DaleDietrich And it'd make Sprint handsets more expensive - probably not many vendors would bother, same as iDEN/CDMA issues today. #
  • 11:00 @ctash I believe it, you're going to find areas where one is better than the other, for sure. #
  • 20:16 Just followed John Flansburgh & @hodgman down the block to the theater. Looking forward to the show! #
  • 22:37 #
  • 22:38 #
  • 22:56 twitpi Awesome show! TMBG! #
  • 23:17 That was a great show! @ctash Yeah, @hodgman performed with TMBG, as The Deranged Millionaire. He was great. TMBG was great. I'm hyper. #
  • 23:46 Post-TMBG ice cream at Herrell's. Yummy. #
  • 23:48 Interesting tidbit learned from the last Mythbusters, @donttrythis is a fellow sleep apnea sufferer. Wonder if he uses a CPAP? #
  • 23:59 Happy New Year! #
