@bleeters I misread your tweet, sorry. Didn’t see the “non” in my rush. I’m not up to speed on audio tools other than what I personally use.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to iBleeterOhDot3

@bleeters Lots of ways to play windows Media streams on OS X. Will dig out links later, I’m now Doing Things™.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to iBleeterOhDot3

@leslie_nassar It didn’t fix VLC, of course, but I felt better after having given my admin password to a random program from the Internet.

via Twitter Web Client

Thank you @leslie_nassar, I did not have the latest Perian installed. Fixed. http://bit.ly/87sEV

via Twitter Web Client

@Wyane Hah! I did try Windows Media Player for Mac, and it couldn’t read the stream either!

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… Quicktime Player 10.0 for OS X can read this ABC Newcastle stream, but not VLC. Weird. http://bit.ly/aJPOAb

via Twitter Web Client

@Wyane Hmmm… and there doesn’t appear to be a coherent Gstreamer Firefox plugin for OS X? Oh well.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m on ABC Radio 1233 Newcastle at 1345 AEDT talking Google and Aboriginal Flag. Stream at http://bit.ly/2hC4b7 but broken?

via Twitter Web Client

I’m told Ars Technica’s coverage of Apple iThingo launch will be good. http://is.gd/77kUI HT @nigelwadsworth

via Twitter Web Client

Ta @nigelwadsworth … though any major firm that can’t sort a live video stream of an event these days is pretty pathetic IMHO.

via Twitter Web Client

@JoshuaWithers Yes, I will be awake at 5am. I’m usually up around then. Today was an appalling sleep-in for me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JoshuaWithers

@oliyoung Um, the Apple thing is 5am AEDT surely? 1000 PST is 0500 AEDT, says both http://bit.ly/cPoKQb and Apple iCal.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

I assume that someone on the Internet will tell me what URL this Apple launch will be streamed from when the time comes.

via Twitter Web Client

@carolduncan Happy to talk on the wireless, whether I know anything about the topic or not. Gimme a buzz to arrange. http://bit.ly/1YMfNG

via Twitter Web Client in reply to carolduncan

@carolduncan Yes, I’m about. I’m pottering at my desk at the moment. Whazzup?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to carolduncan

Yes, what the world REALLY needs is a choice of transitions for slideshows. I’ve felt that gap in my life for some years now.

via Twitter Web Client

Hey @deejackson NYT has some live stats at http://bit.ly/aQ8OQV for iPad-related tweets.

via Twitter Web Client

I’ll have to add “intense” to my list of words that slack-jawed tech-gawkers have drained of meaning.

via Twitter Web Client

It would be good if people could describe things in terms other than being like a movie they saw once.

via Twitter Web Client

Hah! @Cacotopos I don’t dislike the iPhone. It’s just that 14 months ago it wasn’t what I needed. [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client

Gawd, talk about cult of personality! A slideshow with [gasp!] music gets a round of applause?

via Twitter Web Client

So, it’s called the iPad. And you can change the background screen. Wow. There’s a feature.

via Twitter Web Client

Endgadget’s liveblog is also posting photos of the Apple presentation very promptly. http://bit.ly/74pRDF

via Twitter Web Client

Oh please! Whoever said it, someone using a phone to provide audio coverage of an event is not “groundbreaking”. LOL!

via Twitter Web Client

@Cacotopos The Ars Technica liveblog? Working fine for me atm. http://bit.ly/8gjBUA

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cacotopos

Also watching the @TWiT live stream (which doubtless die once it all starts) http://bit.ly/t3fY0

via Twitter Web Client

Starting to follow the Ars Technica liveblog of the Apple iThingo launch. http://bit.ly/8gjBUA

It has reached that time… [exit]

Receiving and understanding coded messages.

I love how I can predict the past. It’s yet another super-power.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @leslie_nassar: Apple have already released software to create hybridised iTunes Store-friendly content.

via Twitter Web Client

Specifically @renailemay I reckon Apple will announce software to create the “hybridised content” FSJ mentions. http://bit.ly/4l4UB3

via Twitter Web Client

@Venisejb Happy New Year. Yes, this is a narwhal. I have been varying the avatar a bit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Venisejb

@renailemay Yes I will, stupidly, be up at 0500 to see what the iThingy is all about. But I think the real gee-wow will be new software.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

PA announcement: “The train on platform 19 does not convey passengers. Not tonight, anyway. Too tired.”

via Cloudhopper

@SnarkyPlatypus I bow to your superior and personal knowledge of “insufferably smug”.

via Twitter Web Client

Minor delays my arse.

via Cloudhopper

Wending my way home. I’ll first see how the trains are faring.

via Cloudhopper

Fake Steve Jobs is probably right about the new iThingo. http://bit.ly/4l4UB3

via Twitter Web Client

I will post a photograph of the kookaburra later. Why do kookaburras always look so irritated?

via Twitter Web Client

I’m in the Sydney CBD, ready for my SEKRIT meeting. Actually, is it sekrit? Dunno.

via Twitter Web Client

@ericscheid For some reason the spelling is “Indian mynah” but “noisy miner”. Damn birds.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ericscheid

ABC Radio has decided to do the interview tomorrow in-studio instead. I will go and chat with this kookaburra instead.

via Twitter Web Client

Things I can hear in the park: magpies, thunder, distant aircraft, fat man chastising fiddly dog, noisy miners harassing kookaburra.

via Twitter Web Client

@willhughes Nope, if @sherylyulin is at Redfern she’s on the train ahead of me. Anyway, I’m sitting in a park now, awaiting the ABC’s call.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

Platform at Macdonaldtown filled with people phoning ahead. I abandon the railways, seek quiet spot for ABC to call me.

via Cloudhopper

Macdonaldtown. Lots of non-moving in progress. Just told we won’t be moving due to faulty train ahead (Redfern), no ETA for fix.

via Twitter Web Client

Defective train ahead of this one stuck between Newtown and Macdonaldtown, he says.

via Twitter Web Client

Trains inbound to the city on the Inner West line seem to be delayed. This is not convenient.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile again: Newtown station; Central station; ABC Ultimo; 1745 ABC Radio Statewide NSW to talk Google & China & Internet censorship.

via Twitter Web Client

I think I need to form a Taskforce.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. A quelle heure vous appelez cela, jeune homme? Hmmm?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @BernardKeane: If virginity is becoming the “have you tried pot” question, what’s the equivalent of “I didn’t inhale”?

via Twitter Web Client

@renailemay The Apple thingy starts at 0500 AEDT. That’s 1000 PST yesterday for us tomorrow in the future-past.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

People seem to know precisely what to send me. http://bit.ly/cI7HvQ

via Twitter Web Client

@TimLovitt Nah, there are no big brain cells in the Blue Mountains. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TimLovitt

Them’s big rain cells coming in over the Blue Mountains. http://bit.ly/ztJ9I I hope we get a thunderstorm in inner Sydney.

via Twitter Web Client

OH: “God she’s got some boobs on her. It’s a wonder she can even play tennis with boobs like that! I think she’s Danish.”

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; lunch; quiet writing spot; 1730-ish ABC Ultimo; 1815 SEKRIT meeting Sydney CBD.

via Twitter Web Client

On hold for ABC Radio 1233 Newcastle and 666 Canberra. Google and Aboriginal Flag. Stream at http://bit.ly/2hC4b7

via Twitter Web Client

Heh! @CADbloke To expand, I’m looking for someone who’s good on how clueful or not kids are on spotting malware before sharing files.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland Not an Intel processor in the iPad, no. But would you have picked Apple’s own new chip? Rather than, say, ARM?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

Is anyone or does anyone know a school IT person where they have the Ruddvolutionary laptops?

via Twitter Web Client

Is Tony Abbott really counting people’s teeth to see if they’re fit to be married?

via Twitter Web Client

@anthonybaxter iPad has a microphone, but not a line in. Well, it has USB and Bluetooth, so there’s your audio input.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to anthonybaxter

The specs do say the iPad’s “Wireless and Cellular” capability is “Data only”. http://bit.ly/d1RqPI

via Twitter Web Client

Before I look like a complete goose, did anyone actually see the iPad being used as, you know, a phone?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai eu très peu de sommeil, mais je suis animée par La Puissance de Steve. Je suis humide, même collant partout.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Does “e-book” have a hyphen? Should I type “e-book” or “ebook” or “eBook” or “eschallot”?

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Apple has been using Star Trek imagery in iMac adverts for some time. Nothing new there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Leaving obvious comments to others, I will now write some words. Possibly even some thoughtful words.

via Twitter Web Client

Of course, going on about spreadsheets [yawn] is so the next obvious announcement seems astounding by comparison. Ah, vaudevillle!

via Twitter Web Client

I think the point they’re making at the moment is that a “computer” can “run” “software”. Until the non-swap battery runs out, anyway.
