Palm Kills Foleo

September 4, 2007

I’m typing this on a MacBook at the Mother of All Apple Stores.

I said I’d be away from the PC, and I was.

I was still carrying The Biggest Piece of Shit Known to Man with me and during a rest in Bryant Park, pulled it out — and, this is the truth!, the first site I hit was Palm’s blog and I saw the Colligan announcement.

1) I thought I was hallucinating

2) I thought the Palm blog had been hacked

3) I thought it was a joke

When it sunk in that it was for real, I felt sick.

I’ll have more to say about this tomorrow, but in the meantime, it’s really making me wonder if Apple will indeed announce/release an iPhone/iPod SDK tomorrow!

Note: I’ve had to go back into this post and fix formatting several times. The Safari browser even on a MacBook doesn’t play nice with the WordPress text field. Blank lines get eaten. I don’t know how this sort of thing affects people using RSS. Eh.


Blog Notes: OK, Now I’m Gone

September 4, 2007

I stayed at the PC monitoring the blog stats. I wanted to see if it’d make a record.

It did.

Now I’m gone for the day because WordPress still has JPG indigestion, dammit.

Go hurt each other. But still — no killing.

Blog Notes: Record Traffic Day

September 4, 2007

Fake Fake Steve Jobs has the mojo cubed!

His one blog alone set a traffic record here. All time high.

And. It’s. Still. Going.

Super ultra ne plus ultra Namaste, FFSJ!


Blog Notes: No Pictures For Me!

September 4, 2007

Ah, you see there are few posts today!

That’s because WordPress is apparently having the vapors yet again.

I can upload JPGs just fine, but when it comes to WordPress displaying them, I get Feh!

So, I am leaving the PC for the day.

Fight amongst yourselves. But no killing!


Tomorrow’s iPod: The Beginning Of Bliss?

September 4, 2007

There are many rumors floating around the Net about tomorrow’s (September 5, 2007) anticipated iPod announcement.

A CNet article focuses on the new beast containing the soul of OS X:

It also seems very likely that those new iPods will run the same stripped-down version of Mac OS X found on the iPhone, something even Jobs himself hinted at during a meeting with Apple employees on the eve of the iPhone launch.

You don’t need a sophisticated operating system to play songs and TV shows, so at that point, the iPod stops being just a gadget. So, then, what exactly is it? Like the iPhone, it becomes something in between a gadget and a PC, which has been treacherous ground for the PC industry.

It almost becomes what we have been waiting for: a pocketable Mac.

I say almost because we’re still lacking the critical component that would make it so: an SDK that will allow programmers to go wild.

What if that turns out to be part of tomorrow’s announcement?

What if all along Apple has been waiting to drop that in the lap of AT&T?

January 2007 Steve Jobs: “Yes, AT&T, we will only allow people to run web apps. Must protect your network.”

September 2007 Steve Jobs: “Today we are also announcing One More Thing: Today, we are turning the iPod into Apple’s newest platform. We are releasing an SDK for free on our website. Oh, and there’s another One More Thing. All apps written for the new iPod will also run on our iPhone.”

That would be the Big Bang of Bliss. I’ve been waiting for an SDK. I want someone to develop a text editor or HTML editor for the iPhone. I want someone to create an iPhone version of Photo Toolkit. I want someone to get in there and make it possible for the iPhone to work with a Bluetooth keyboard (like mine!).

It would make the iPhone my mobile blogging device.

I can tell you an SDK announcement would have immediate effect on me. I’d stop wondering about Palm’s Foleo completely. And so would many other people.

Christ! It’s staggering, the amount of traffic being sent here from his blog! He’s exceeded what MacSurfer sent over — by twice!


Left Is The New Black For The Web

September 4, 2007

I went to Warren Ellis’ site and found out he’s been playing with my mind behind my back. He’s changed the design of his site yet again. I now see he’s part of The Global Plot that’s out there to loosen my grasp of reality. Can’t trust those English. They know how to do that. See 1984.

Everything — well, the stuff you read — is now on the left of the screen.

Another site that’s done that recently is JK on the Run.

JK admitted that it made his site easier to read on mobile devices.

That’s something I started screaming about (via email back then, to him and others) once my hands were filthied by The Biggest Piece of Shit Known to Man. It took Nokia sending JK The Son of The Biggest Piece of Shit Known to Man for the lightbulb to flicker to life. Shortly thereafter, his site turned Left (as it were).

This site has always been lefty. But it’s also because I like this design and especially love the name of this WordPress Theme: Contempt.

Have your site Go Left. Or get, uh, left behind.


Oh Jesus! Fake Steve Jobs Is Wooing Me!

Not only does he link to my Fable post, but he comes up with a variant on my name no one has ever used before!

Mike “Hurra” Cane

Namaste, Fake Fake Steve. Or something. Whatever.


I Wish I Thought Of That!

September 4, 2007

Don’t ask why, but I went to Fake Steve’s blog and saw this brilliant neologism in a post:

Fake Steve Jobs is still dead to me, though. Apparently, there is a real ghost ghost-writing it now.
