Let your tweets incubate with Birdhouse for iPhone {}

Apr 13th 2009 6:15PM Notes doesn't have a character count feature.

Notes doesn't let you easily un-publish/re-publish with changes like Birdhouse does.

Also, your list of Notes would get filled up with your drafts.

People make grocery list apps and to-do list apps for the same reason: They do that specific task better than Notes can.

Mac mini refresh, what's new? {}

Mar 3rd 2009 10:54AM The Mini comes with a miniDVI to DVI adapter and FW800 ports are backwards compatible with FW400 devices. Relax, it's fine.

Playing WoW off an SD card {WoW}

Jan 10th 2009 3:22AM There is no read limits to flash memory; just write limits and the cards will automatically write-level the space on the drive to preserve the life of the electronics. Furthermore, when a block of memory does die, it'll just not use that one block and redirect the writes elsewhere.

In short, you don't have to worry about write limits in practice.

Win a LaCie Rugged and iPod nano from PowerMax {}

Dec 11th 2008 10:28AM I'd use the drive for Time Machine and Super Duper backups for my MacBook Pro and iMac and my wife's MacBook.

The last disk I burned was a volume licensed version of Office 2008 for one of our school's computer labs.

Patches, addons and drama in the forums {WoW}

Jul 16th 2008 5:30PM "Blizzard "steals" my addons all the time, and I LOVE THEM for it. It's one less thing I have to maintain."

This is something that addon users need to understand. Many authors create addons to add or modify something to their interface that they personally want. If Blizzard adds that particular modification to the default UI then as far as they're concerned, it's a big win since it's one less thing for them to maintain to be able to play the way they want.

Some remarks on drop rates {WoW}

Apr 29th 2008 9:46PM hmm... adding a reply changes the message numbers... oh well. :p

Some remarks on drop rates {WoW}

Apr 29th 2008 9:45PM #25 and #26:

No. To do so, Blizzard would have to keep a record (a state) of the number of Supplies bags opened since your last badge in the character database since if it were kept client-side, you could hack it and give yourself guaranteed drops. Furthermore, they'd have to also keep a state for any given drop on any given mob on any given quest.

Now multiply that by all your quests.

And again by all your alts.

And again by, what... 10 million players?

That's a lot of state to hold at any given time and it's not worth it. If Blizzard really did want to make a certain "collect N drops" quest faster (or slower) to make it seem "more fair", it's much easier to just tweak the drop-rate by a percent or two.

Another blow in the keylogging experience {WoW}

Mar 15th 2008 11:36AM Keyloggers can scan your clipboard contents as well. If you've thought of it, the people who script the keyloggers have thought of it as well.

Giveaway: have an iPhone on us! {Engadget}

Jul 1st 2007 10:46AM I'm looking forward to America having a lust-worthy phone first. It's about time we really started catching up with the rest of the world.

Win yourself some Shure headphones! {Engadget}

May 25th 2007 2:11PM Dr. Dog, old Ze Frank episodes, and my voicemail. Man, that'd be some *singin'* voicemail on a pair of Shures.
