Apple’s new iPod Touch

I have a few questions for the new iPod touch.

  1. Does it work with the Nike sport thingee?
  2. Can I run the iPhone’s Google Maps app on it?
  3. Why doesn’t it have 32 GB?
  4. Why don’t I have one?


‘Digg This’ bookmarklet for Safari

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

I found out recently that most “Digg This” bookmarklets don’t work with Safari.
I think it’s because other browsers use document.getSelection() and Safari only accepts just getSelection().

In any case, this bookmarklet Diggs whichever page you’re looking at, uses the title of the page as the title of your Digg, and puts the selected text in the description.

Drag this to your Safari bookmarks bar: DiggThis

iPhone apps are coming out fast

See Colloquuy? Click for larger pic.

The iPhone seems to be completely opened now.

You can install custom native apps, and unlock the phone to use with a non-AT&T company.

These new devices aren’t really iPhones or iPods.
They should be called iPads.
They are a distinctive break from previous devices.

You can download the iPhone version of Colloquy (an IRC client)
from Google Code.

Kanguru’s FireFlash drive

Check it out at
kanguru.com.

Also seen on
CNet,
the Mac Observer,
and ChipChick.

OCZ’s “first FireWire flash drive EVAR” (announced at CompuTex in June 2007), meanwhile, is nowhere to be seen.

This could actually be fast enough to boot an OS from.

Sizes range from 1 to 8 GB.
