@phirephoenix @arthurwyatt @ardaniel the mini (and proponents) bemuse me. I want *bigger* ipad; my newton was *too big*. that said, PADD. – 04:20 PM GMT
@phirephoenix @arthurwyatt @ardaniel otoh the diff b/t ipad 1 and a mini is functional due to current HW features. – 04:21 PM GMT
@phirephoenix @arthurwyatt yeah, I use dropbox + text, diff apps depending on plat. some gdocs. – 04:22 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt the pricing is absurd, though. it always is for the tower-style pros. – 04:24 PM GMT
@phirephoenix @arthurwyatt @ardaniel interesting. if i’m bringing a bag someplace, I’ll bring ipad, otherwise, iphone is good enough. – 04:27 PM GMT
@ardaniel @phirephoenix @arthurwyatt i have a collection of field batteries for the phone I add or subtract from pockets as I head out! – 04:35 PM GMT
@phirephoenix makes sense. if I didn’t work at home that might affect usage. even then I’d be hauling laptop + ipad. – 04:38 PM GMT
@phirephoenix @ardaniel @arthurwyatt i should selfie my techbags for you guys since we’re on the road. batteries, cables/power each get case – 04:40 PM GMT
@phirephoenix @ardaniel @arthurwyatt yep, 15” MPB (removable battery, last of) here. will nurse it down to the dark because of the battery. – 04:41 PM GMT
@ardaniel @arthurwyatt @phirephoenix aww. usb DAC best option prolly – 04:42 PM GMT
@ardaniel @arthurwyatt @phirephoenix ALTHOUGH bluetooth is there to consider. hm, no lumpy bits. maybe that’s the best way. – 04:43 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phirephoenix @ardaniel no pads of $2 bills here though – 04:44 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phirephoenix @ardaniel circa 1999 I was buying junk mac blackbird laptops and frankensteining them back to life – 04:46 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phirephoenix @ardaniel used one as primary in-home webserver for a couple years. there was a system 7 (?) webserver program! – 04:47 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phirephoenix @ardaniel correct. great machines. designed for modularity, swappable drive bays. also cool looking. – 04:48 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phirephoenix @ardaniel I bought Viv the orange one once I had committed to wireless LANs in the house. Still have it (why?). – 04:51 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phirephoenix @ardaniel I remember sitting on the couch with a blackbird thinking anxiously about how it changed everything – 04:52 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phirephoenix @ardaniel and it did! especially the number of drinks spilled into computers. – 04:53 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @phirephoenix @ardaniel (re, drinks spilt) mike.whybark.com/archives/00132… – 04:56 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @ardaniel @phirephoenix now that I think about it a bit more, the laptop rebuilds must have been more 2001-2002ish. – 04:57 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @ardaniel @phirephoenix I know I was rebuilding old macs to webstuff from home during that era, when I was home. – 04:58 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @ardaniel @phirephoenix 1998-2001 was my Big Dotcom Adventure culminating in a commute-by-airplane to Scotts Valley – 05:00 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt @ardaniel @phirephoenix … while playing in a band. – 05:00 PM GMT
@phirephoenix @ardaniel @arthurwyatt that’s badass and literary at the same time! – 06:46 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt unh. hard one to explain. iphoto allows you to manage your mobile movie assets (camera or phone clips), sort of – 08:18 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt … but due to asshattery maintains barriers against working on clips in iPhoto (presumably because NOT PHOTOS) – 08:20 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt longtime Mac video widget thingy is “iMovie,” I think still avail. used with iDVD to, well, you can guess. – 08:21 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt apple preloaded sw bundle marketing info page apple.com/macbook-air/bu… – 08:23 PM GMT
@arthurwyatt appears ship-with remains in place, but things are complicated somehow such that I can no longer explain due to ignorance – 08:24 PM GMT
