You’ll like this ABC “PM” item on he-said she-said reportage in Australia’s carbon price debate, @jayrosen_nyu http://arseh.at/92t

@allthingsd Auto-refresh web pages are annoying. I wanted to finish an open article on the train, but I had “Server not found” instead.

Wondering whether to admit that after a couple hours’ sleep I’m suddenly wide awake again.

“Burma’s Nude Nymph Commandos”? WTF? http://flic.kr/p/7uvEBT pIng @ApostrophePong

@domknight I have previously referred to the Dalai Lama as “The Bono of Buddhism”, but then he does represent a theocratic autocracy…

@R_Chirgwin Thank you for leaving me a nicely-stoked fire in Rosella Cottage. It’s suitably toasty.

RT @JohnBirmingham: One part gin, one part dry vermouth, 5 parts sub zero vodka. [Where “part” is Lithuanian for “litre”?]

Je suis arrivée en Les Bunjarees.

@Drag0nista Nasty though it is, I fear that the world has become obsessed with it, and interprets EVERYTHING through that frame.

@Drag0nista Since when did the letters C and P become the exclusive domain of certain pornography? See also http://www.abbreviations…

Reading a discussion on Whirlpool. I think I’m dumber now than when I started.

Crossing the Nepean.

Maybe corporate types would stop using “around” as an all-purpose vague preposition if after twice in one day it was a bullet in the head.

via TweetDeck

Mobile again. 1543 train from Newtown; change at Strathfield; thence to Wentworth Falls. Sigh.

The one question I have about these definitions of “power user” coming in is, “So how does this affect product development and marketing?”

via TweetDeck

OK, lots of comments back about power users. Thank you. I may well turn that into a blog post later.

via TweetDeck

Is there a definition of “power user” beyond “I’m a power user and you proles are not”?

@leslienassar Buy me an iPad and I’ll use it. [shrugs] I can’t afford to buy more gadgetry.

“Does this train go to Parramatta?” FFS, it’s not a secret! Is Parramatta listed on the display? No? Well what do you fucking reckon?

via TweetDeck

Um, I don’t have an iPad. I can’t answer questions about specific usage balances or keyboards, @1159 @sholtomac.

via TweetDeck

I’m a phone, I guess, at least with this photo http://post.ly/2WRnx

Mobile: Light rail; heavy rail; errands on foot to Enmore Rd & King St; lunch thereabouts. I’ll be working en route.

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: I consider myself a “power-user” and I already spend 80% of my “computer time” working on the iPad. [Prezactly!]

via TweetDeck

RT @expectproblems: How long before PCs are just for “power-users” and everybody else has tablets with keyboards as required? [Not long?]

via TweetDeck

Ta for those comments, @expectproblems @PardusXY @cheshireb. It’s clear such categorisation will shape strategies. If they get it wrong…

via TweetDeck

RT @expectproblems: Wait, so tablets are PCs but smartphones aren’t? I’d say the link is almost as tenuous for both. [I agree.]

via TweetDeck

Microsoft views iPad, other tablets as “just PCs”. Have they got it wrong? Includes OS share graph. http://arseh.at/91m

RT @joshgnosis: Top 10 features missing from Google+ http://j.mp/pBBBme [And add 11: a sense of perspective? My toaster can’t iron a shirt!]

Fine advice from @johnemcintrye: Wait five years before reading any book. http://arseh.at/91e

Mon plan: Finish an article; errands & lunch Enmore/Newtown; train to Wentworth Falls, working en route; map out rest of week; quiet night.

via TweetDeck

Ah, Monday. This’ll be interesting.

via TweetDeck

And now I shall attempt to unwind and get some sleep. This may or may not work.

@jplonie Me? What do *I* do? Fucked if I know. But I’ll be doing it again tomorrow. /cc @RealNickHodge @NewtonMark
