There’s been so much activity lately that I haven’t been keeping up with the blogs. Forgot to fire up the web-based aggregator that runs on my machine at home, so I was just giving a quick spin to the Google offering. They have a quasi River of News view though it’s still embedded in a frameset, and I’d prefer the item sources to be more prominently marked. One unique aspect of the reader, something either I like or is just plain spooky (or maybe both), is that when you hit the bottom of the river, more news flows in. You can just keep scrolling, seemingly forever.
I heard back this morning from GrandCentral. No support for number porting yet. Boohoo. Giving up the number seems so…20th century. Surely there has to be a cost-effective way to hold onto it.
GrandCentral promsies “One Number… for Life”. Hmm, I’ve been hanging onto my Boston cell phone trying to figure out what to do with it. Wonder if they can do a transfer? Gonna find out.
We watched Cars this morning with the kids. It didn’t wow me the way other Pixar films have, and is a bit on the long side at nearly two hours, but it’s solid. Don’t miss the “inspiration for cars” in the DVD bonus material. It’s all about old route 66, makes me want to go on a car trip. Or maybe read some Kerouac 😉
I’ve had my head under the covers for the last few weeks cranking out the next version of PodShow Plus with our crack team of engineers at HQ. Lots of good stuff coming next week.
