@jplonie There shall be no vodka, for I have no need to start a tractor tonight.

Heading down to Text100’s to see all the new shiny things. And possibly have an orange juice.

@LiaTimson Ah yes, organised crime is a business with KPIs…

@JM77 Yep, that’s been my emerging feelpinion.

via Twitter for Windows Phone in reply to JM77

@JM77 Ah yes! I’ve actually been flipping between the LG Optimus G and the Nokia Lumia 925 this week.

via Twitter for Windows Phone in reply to JM77

@JM77 Indeed, my (albeit shonky) memory is failing to dredge out a face to match the name.

@JM77 To this evening’s little do? Ph yes.

@SnarkyPlatypus Surely they wouldn’t be so silly. I mean, they work in PR.

Are you a bladder? Have you ever bladded?

via Janetter for Mac

“Bladder” is such a curious word.

Today I received an invitation to a conference with the note: “Will ensure we have refreshments.” I think they understand how this works.

@Tuigen @AtomicMPC I suspect you have to be a PR company for this specific kind of boding.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Tuigen

@tassie_codriver We did indeed. But this Xmas in August is a certain media event. A preview of tech and gadgets for the Xmas season.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to tassie_codriver

RT @AtomicMPC: It just bodes. [It does. It most certainly bodes.]

via Janetter for Mac

Oh Dear God, there’s a hashtag for today’s ? This bodes… well?

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Look, we told you about these droids”, on Android security matters. zdnet.com/look-we-told-y…

@macdonald_jimmy Agreed, I generally get quite a bit done on the train down from the Blue Mountains.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to macdonald_jimmy

I just realised the last few photos from the Lumia have been taken on “Night” setting. Doh!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ABCFactCheck: High speed rail for the same price as the Coalition’s PPL? bit.ly/16UwLyk [Sending the kids where…?]

via Janetter for Mac

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia. Writing the entire thing within the confines of one train journey was a nice achievement.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus The lack of (some) apps is Windows Phone 8’s “challenge”. If the Lumia came in Android, it’d be a serious contender for me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Cameras are the Lumia’s key differentiator, and they’re very good. Did I show you the full HD video I shot from a train?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @bigmac: Now that you mention it, what is better than “Military grade” these days? [Child-proof?]

@miller_c_j @paulwallbank Actually, I think my view is quite broad. I find the “Australian SV” idea to be a bit hand-wavey anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to miller_c_j

Thu plan: 1032 train to Sydney; write for @zdnetaustralia en route; 1230 UTS recording; 1500 meeting CBD; 1700 Text100 Xmas in August.

Rearranging plans slightly.

RT @leslienassar: I dropped an E. [Well it’s a nice day for it. And it saves on breakfast costs.]

RT @jplonie: @glengyron this like how the Gold Coast has a Miami isn’t it. [Yep, exactly that.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: Do you guys remember when SA government “managed to attract” Motorola to SA? Bwahahahaha. @leslienassar [How about the MFP?]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: The second you see “Australia’s own Silicon Valley” you know it’s a complete failure anyway.

via Janetter for Mac

You know, @leslienassar, Australian governments’ fawning at big foreign internet companies is still so… provincial.

@SnarkyPlatypus The tradition at Text100’s Xmas in August is that oblivion happens at around 1705 AEST.

@S7U Well that’s one way of putting it, thank you.
