jan 28 - another podcast on the ipad aftermath, nice conversation, also on the mobile space (Phil Windley, Scott Lemon)

  • "all I could think was: this is so cool, I can't wait till I can get the palmOS version #ipad"
  • "I need to use my iphone but I would jailbreak an ipad in a heartbeat"
  • "the mobile space today is like the pre-windows space in the 80s: you can develop for amiga, apple, atari, or commodore"
  • "AMD exists because Intel lets them exist to avoid antitrust issues"
  • "apple having its own chip is either going to be a massive mistake or the beginning of some unprecedented dominance"
  • "I'm a pretty public guy but I'm not sure I'd go as far as blippy"
  • "so in the next podcast we'll talk about what we like and don't like about the ipads we bought"

Notes on other podcasts:

Most of what I currently listen to is .NET related and quite a bit on technology in general and how it is impacting society. I listen to an occasional historical or philosophical podcast.

I record these notes as a way of extracting the gems and remember facts from these podcasts: phrases that ring true or new terms that I look up later. If you see someone walking around Berlin speaking short phrases into his cell phone every couple minutes, that's me.
