First thoughts on the iPhone 4 bumper: very atypical packaging.

Am I the only one who wishes you could turn on a timestamp for every text message on the iPhone?

@jcsalterego Partly my point – developers can set a “tab” to equal whatever indent they want (in most IDEs).

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to jcsalterego

@simpledream And while I agree that spaces or tabs aren’t as important as standards, I can think of no excuses to use spaces.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to simpledream

@simpledream Agreed, though my tweet about the spaces was not directly related to the first about poor indentation….

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to simpledream

In defense of indenting with spaces…





…yeah, I got nothing.

via Tweetie for Mac

The indentation of your code is a good indicator of how much you care about your work.

@cameronmoll The only thing I prefer the trackpad for is vertical scrolling.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to cameronmoll

@cameronmoll Curious what you find yourself using it for? I prefer a mouse to my MacBook Pro’s trackpad, so not sure of its usefulness..?

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to cameronmoll

@support Not receiving text messages from the @earlybird account, even though I’m subscribed…?

@kartooner I haven’t seen it again (yet), but plan to. Always pick up on more the second time through, especially in a movie like that.

@obiwankimberly That first meal after a dentist visit is always a bit weird, isn’t it?

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to obiwankimberly

@jensiegrist Heh. Kinda found it funny that it was the exact opposite of what you actually meant.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to jensiegrist from Stuyvesant Town, New York

@jensiegrist I think you mean “no-patience intolerance” :)

@cameronmoll Good luck. I received an email 3 days ago “reserving” a place in line for me to setup Twitter / Facebook and still nothing….

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to cameronmoll

veen I have a lot of respect for people who punctuate text messages correctly.

So, @boltbus never prompts you to login when booking a ticket and then won’t do anything to update your boarding group. Horrible experience.

via Tweetie for Mac

Out of 64 comments on @cultofmac’s guide to stealing apps, not a single one is positive. Way to go, guys.

Twice in a row now I’ve locked myself out of my apartment after being away for a few weeks. Grrr.

@jlbruno Tell me about it. I kept thinking tomorrow was Friday.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to jlbruno from Irving, TX

@William_kent LOL, guess I can’t complain to you, can I? ;)

@jclagares It’s so nice to have access to your bookmarks and open tabs on the go!

Used Firefox Home to load a tab I had open in my desktop browser on my iPhone while I was at lunch. This is the future. http://bit.ly/a3cZs7

via Tweetie for Mac

@KuraFire No one is forcing anyone to own an iPhone 4, but the complainers can’t bring themselves to be without one. ;)

via web in reply to KuraFire

@KuraFire Oh, totally agree with you there. People’s feelings of entitlement over the iPhone is hilarious, to me.

Mike_FTW People, if your luxury smartphone doesn’t work to your expectations you can return it and get your money back. Get on with your lives.

via web (retweeted on 2:31 PM, Jul 16th, 2010 via web)

@KuraFire Not really. There’s a big difference between it happening during real usage and it happening if you are trying to make it happen.

Read HTML5 for Web Designers on my flight to Dallas today. Loved it and the cut to the chase approach. Can’t wait for more from @abookapart!

Landed in Dallas. Taxi to the hotel, then to lunch and the World Cup.

For the love of all things good, if you’re using negative text-indent for image replacement, remember to add overflow: hidden.

@dylanharrington It’s a split. Content has actually been very good, but not sure any (web) conference is worth going to for content alone.

@danielmall Working on convincing @adambrill to come up for it right now. :)

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to danielmall

@cameronmoll It’s based more on Firefox Sync (previously Weave Sync) than the browser. Viewing the URLs will use the iPhone native webview.

via Tweetie for Mac

@cameronmoll Regarding Firefox Home for iPhone: I don’t believe it’s a “lite” version of Firefox at all, but rather an app to sync URLs.
