Leo’s Twitter Updates for 2007-11-13

  • Just back from dinner with AMD’s Hector Ruiz, John Markoff and other luminaries. Stunned to learn AMD CAO Tom McCoy is "in the TWiT Army!" #
  • The Asusu EEE PC is a perfect portable Twitter machine. I’m going to have to redesign all my sites for 800×600. #
  • @uberalex The EEE is perfectly responsive. And the keyboard is usable with a little practice. The screen is small – but overall I like it! #
  • Drove into SF from Petaluma to tape MacBreak and MacBreak Dev. The Marin commute is worse than ever. Good for podcasting, bad for my BP. #
  • @barron blood pressure! #
  • @maclover I got the Asus EEE yesterday. It’s pretty sweet. I’ll do a review soon. Meanwhile check out Wil’s. http://urltea.com/2382 #
  • Handy TV tip: don’t wear green shirts to green screen shoots. Had to buy three shirts at Tommy Bahama. Had to. Honest. #

  1. I found that a local bay-area computer store had two in stock and bought one. I was going to wait for the next generation (faster, bigger screen, etc.), but I couldn’t resist giving it a try. I’ve worked with it for about 2 hours going through the various applications, trying out the camera (after enabling it), getting the WiFi set up. The keyboard is going to be a challenge for anyone who touch-types well or who has big fingers (neither of those qualities apply to me).

  2. Whoops, I forgot one important point in my previous point – I was talking about the ASUS Eee PC. 🙂
    I have had a few weird things happen, like the cursor stopped working for a time, but then righted itself after I went into cursor setup. Also the voice command menu wouldn’t start for me today, but worked fine yesterday. More investigation is called for.
    BTW, how’s Hector doing these days?

  3. I can’t comment on your twitter posts so I’ll leave this here.
    For quick video posts you could try this:
    iMovie 08 -> iSight record video -> youtube post the video inside of iMovie -> grab the embed the link from youtube and put in in a post.
    Just a thought.

  4. Kevin: I was very impressed with Hector, and pleased to learn that Tom McCoy is a big fan!
    Joshua: that’s exactly what I did tonight. Works great. Thanks!
