Tweet to self: Evernote gets Twitter integration. I know a lot of folks love Evernote. I haven’t tried it, for fear my Mac will begin looking like my desk ...
Trying out Nambu, one of the newer Twitter clients. Open the search trends panel, and am slammed by the banality. American Idol Adam Lambert looked like he farted green nuclear fusion fog the other night? TV shows, sports, not much else. Perhaps it is better that level of conversation isn’t posted on weblogs.
Drobo seems successful in garnering attention via the retweet. [See vowe.net’s observations here.] I fell for that spam scheme, too. I won’t be doing it again.
Table Layouts vs. Div Layouts: From Hell to… Hell? A nice overview for those who still haven’t jumped to CSS layout. No real mention of the various box model hacks required to get multi-column CSS layouts working across all browsers ... but why spoil the fun?
Twitter use explodes. “... the average age for Tweeters was in the 25- to 54-year-old range, with the over-45 set stealing the bulk of the user pie.”
IE6 CSS Fixer. I haven’t tried it yet, just thought others might be interested.
NY Times Magazine:
I Hate My iPhone. I’ve heard this from other folks with big hands, that the text-messaging keyboard is too narrow, only available in vertical alignment.
Free Flex Builder for Unemployed Developers. Cool (and smart) thing Adobe’s doing.
Popular fonts with their Mac OSX, Windows and Linux equivalents. I didn’t know the Linux equivalents. Handy.
Google ‘close’ to buying Twitter. And here I hoped they might come up with a pay-for strategy, instead of the old twosome, ad-driven or sugar daddy.
Gmail’s dead slow,
when it shows up at all. Anyone else notice the slowdown?
Rekindling the Book. “As I ride the slower Amtrak train home through a dark winter landscape, I’m feeling far less sanguine about technological magic. The paperback book I’m reading suddenly feels like a marvel of efficiency.”
Social sites dent privacy efforts. Perhaps Google Adwords will be fed to our cellphone/wristwatches based on GPS location.
I’d prefer to have two docks. “Normal” one at the bottom of the screen, one for open apps & docs on the side.
BBRails Toolkit, for those developing Rails apps with BBEdit.
Google pulls some street images. Ah, it seems we DO have a right to privacy, after all.

Play with Biscuit-Tin.com.
Multiple POP accounts through GMail,
and you’ve just set up IMAP through Mail.app, but you can’t figure out how to send from your multiple POP addresses? Add more addresses in the Account pane with commas separating them. You’ll get a “From:” pulldown to choose accounts with.
