parislemon: Google Will Soon Offer A Way For Users To Opt-Out Of Google Analytics Tracking -
Don't know if want. - Chris Charabaruk
Yes! This will have two effects: 1. Speed up the web. 2. Make a great argument for better server log analytics tools. Tools which do not rely on *any* scripting to execute on my visitors' machines. - Mark Zip

My first verdict on Nexus? Better than Droid. Puts it solidly in place as industry's second best phone. @arnehulstein
That good?? - Roberto Bonini
I agree. Nexus1 looks very good. No video was a surprise. LED flash nice (iPhone users jealous!). Voice command is really a game changer, very impressive - Susan Beebe
What's so special about the voice command compared to what the iPhone's got? - rønin
Is that what they demo'd? I haven't watched the video yet. - rønin
I don't think that Nexus One can beat iPhone ! - Naceron
I know it's second only to Nokia N900 - Tim Jones
@Ronin - NexusOne voice is better than my iPhone because you can speak to any text enabled feature. iPhone can't do that yet. For example, you can speak out your email or a tweet! - Susan Beebe
After watching all of the Nexus One videos on YouTube, I still think I like the iPhone interface better. - Jeff P. Henderson
good some see some competition out there. and cue apple fanbois attack in 5... 4.... 3.... 2..... - Terry O'Fee
I rarely use voice commands because I don't like people listening what I am emailing,texting, tweeting, searching or calling. But this is just me. - Ashish from iPhone
Ashish - voice commands are GREAT for folks who are driving, stuck in traffic, elevators, bathroom (LOL), and other interesting places! - Susan Beebe
Susan, you are correct but I just cannot see myself using it frequently. - Ashish from iPhone
@Susan While the voice to just about anything feature of the N1 sounds cool in concept, like ashish mentioned, it's most likely not something I can foresee using on a regular basis. - rønin
great voice features would be great - Tim Jones
Any idea how long it is before the Nexus One is available for Australians? I'm stuck with a G1 for the moment... - George Hall (Australia)
So what program do you use to manage music with the Nexus?The pc/mac sw is what helped propel the iPhone IMO - Peter Ghosh
It has to be said that the music management is not the best. This may be part of Google's de-emphasis on local storage. The phone only has 512mb on-board storage (and can address a card up to 32gb - ships with a 4gb card) so I think that G is saying, "eh, who needs music management when you have all these wonderful things like Pandora, Last etc etc". Probably also the reason they did... more... - Mark Zip
When, oh when, are they going to have the Nexus One available to Australia...? - George Hall (Australia)
Good to see that one spam post was removed. Nice work Friendfeed :) - Ashish
Paul Buchheit
By realizing you have to use the system and studying how to get the system to do your work, you learn how to adapt the system to your desires. Or you can fight it steadily, as a small undeclared war, for the whole of your life. -
Hack the system. - Paul Buchheit from iPhone
Kinda like James Kirk in the last Star Trek - Jesse Stay
Hmm, +1 Jesse - Mo Kargas
I am starting a revolution; I am re-forming the line. - Melanie Reed
Amen. My philosophy exactly. - LANjackal
Otto, Have you read 'The Man Who Was Thursday"? :) - Melanie Reed
Otto, give it a spin. :) - Melanie Reed
“The philosopher may sometimes love the infinite. The poet always loves the finite. For him, the great moment is not the creation of light, but the creation of the sun and moon.” -G.K.C. Light is the object. The sun and the moon are the instance. - Melanie Reed
Light by any other name would still possess its magnitude in heaven. ;) - Melanie Reed
I pulled that same quote when I shared it on Facebook (ripped from your original post of this article). - Hayes Haugen
Otto, do you burn down gravity, or do you build an airplane? - Paul Buchheit
Are they really *that* different? What in this universe isn't bound by the laws of physics? Or are you positing that the human spirit is made of different stuff than the universe...? ;) - Victor Ganata
Knock yourself out trying to do that then. Guardian personality types such as myself will be there to stop you at every turn though. The universe - in its fairness - allows for a wide variety of "life's work" and "heartfelt desires" - LANjackal from IM
I'm of the opinion that if you destroy one system, another one will just form and take its place. - Victor Ganata
Your opinion is fact. The universe tends toward stability and organized systems/rules, not chaos. - LANjackal from IM
I also think chaos is just a name for any system we don't understand yet (or in some cases, may not understand, ever, perhaps) It's systems all the way down! - Victor Ganata
Physical laws are a form of data compression, we take a complex series of data, form a model, and then reduce it to equations, it's really amazing that the universe even allows us to do this, because unfortunately, we know from algorithmic information theory and computer science, that not every dataset is compressible. The ones that aren't, we call "truly random", a dataset whose... more... - Ray Cromwell
It probably only works because our models of the physical universe are all really only probabilistic and not actually deterministic. I think we're just lucky that the errors are infinitesimal in most cases. - Victor Ganata
Another way to put it is "Pick your battles. Exploit the system to further your own goals". - Hayes Haugen
...and for the record he was mainly talking about organizational systems in a civil society. I don't think the philosophy extends to things such as Apartheid, slavery, dictatorships, etc. - Hayes Haugen
Quoting: "Hack the system. - Paul Buchheit from iPhone" - Can we assume that your iPhone is rooted / unlocked / jailbroken ?! - Mark Zip
Jeff Jarvis
Chinese cyberattack exploited Microsoft Explorer flaw. Balmer shoves Google under bus.
whoa! that makes me like google more. pls discuss on #TWIG. - Francine Hardaway from BuddyFeed
Bill, "There are attacks every day. I don't think there was anything unusual, so I don't understand," Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told Reuters after a meeting on modernizing government services at the White House. - Phillip Stewart
Let's say it again folks. Turn off scripting in your PDF reader, surf with scripting off and block all Flash. Then only selectively enable scripting and Flash as you go. There is just no way that *any* employees of *any* of these high-tech companies should be doing *anything* else. - Mark Zip
Don't want to side with Ballmer but the one angle to the Google story no one seems to mention is the NSA, CIA and DOD have been spying on the entire planet since World War II, so its a little hard for the U.S. and a U.S. company to get holier than though if China or anyone else reciprocates. Some of the Google coverage also refers to the possibility the hackers exploited the system the NSA/FBI uses to eavesdrop on Google's traffic. - Ed Millard

Why didn't Google include AT&T freqs on its Nexus One? It would capture iPhone early adopters that way.
Maybe they don't want iPhone owners, still beholden to their AT&T overlords. - Roberto Bonini
Perhaps HTC did not have the space to include the chipset which would take care of ATT frequencies and did have the space for T-Mo. Also, would not be surprised if they said "let's not get mired in the horror that is the ATT network right now" - Mark Zip

@bbosker I've seen black squirrels in NYC, DC, and Detroit.@duncaninla
My mum and dad have a black squirrel in their back yard in Old Greenwich, CT. (S)He is a bit of a bully! Perhaps working out some issues? - Mark Zip
for a blog post: what was your best gadget/gizmo acquisition of the year? Something you love and made your life better? Thx in advance.
Not exactly one ... but the combination of my 3rd gen iPod touch and MiFi - Stephen Millard
Dell Mini 9 with OSX, it was an iphone 3gs, but it has recently replaced with HTC Droid Eris - Jim Adams
Samsung N 130 - Kundan Dhakal
Counter intuitive perhaps, but the more I get into the Nokia N97, the more I like it. Just requires a *lot* of tweaking and attention for the first several days... a *lot* - Mark Zip
Sansa Clip- I use it on all my runs. I paid $25 for this gadget but I get so much out of it, it feels like a steal for that price. - Garmon Estes
Kol Tregaskes
I wish I could use iTunes on my Nokia mobile phone. The standard player on the N96 is awful, so hard to edit playlists. :-( #nokia
Can anyone recommend a good MP3 player for the Nokia or a why I can import my iTunes or WMP playlists into my phone? - Kol Tregaskes
the phone is for talking. buy an ipod. - Nutella Ferrero (emirhan)
iPod, no way. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
I also find it difficult to connect to it and transfer files to it. Really annoying. Surely this should be easy! :-( - Kol Tregaskes
Have you tried Salling Media Sync? - I'm hoping it will solve this problem with the N900 when it comes. - Leo Laporte
Thanks, Leo. I'll give it a look. - Kol Tregaskes
Zune HD looks pretty sweet. May be worth a gander. - Adrian
Looks like, sorry I mean an app not hardware. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Leo, sailing media sync will not replace the default s60 music player which is okay. But I want to mention an alternative music player "oggplay" that I have used in the past. it can play .ogg vorbis files if that is your thing and audio files that your phone can play natively. - j.ash from iPod
Thanks, it's not really what it plays that's the problem, it's the lack of any decent playlist features that's annoying me with the default Nokia N96 player. So an app with a good playlist facility is what I'm after. - Kol Tregaskes
Leo, Salling Media Sync keeps trying to access my floppy drive for some reason. I'm going to have to turn it off. :-( - Kol Tregaskes
Jeff, I've got that installed now and I think it's cataloguing my files atm. Hopefully I can simply sync selective playlists? - Kol Tregaskes
I've tried and tried but I can't get it to work. It lists my mobile phone but I cannot sync any music. The device page doesn't show me the list of media types (like it does for other devices) that lets me tick and select the playlists to sync). Close but no cigar. :-( - Kol Tregaskes
No worries, thanks Jeff. I've send them a tech support message. Maybe they can help. - Kol Tregaskes
You say "I also find it difficult to connect to it and transfer files to it" . This seems odd. When I plug my N95 8GB in to my USB port the phone just mounts as a regular hard drive. I just drag and drop to side-load my tunes and I'm good to go. Of course, this does not address your playlist issue and I don't use iTunes to manage my music and "syncing" is irrelevant to me. So perhaps have nothing to contribute here ;=) But the phone *does* mount easily. Looking forward to the N900 - Mark Zip
Mark, yep, my N95 worked a treat too but I've had problem after problem with the N96, really awful phone! :-( - Kol Tregaskes
Dave Winer
Re your issues with running your software in a mobile environment: Perhaps you might look at the forthcoming Nokia N900. The OS is Maemo (Linux) and it can run any program which can run on Linux.I don't know if anyone ever responded to your idea (over 2 years ago) of sponsoring a port of OPML to Linux, but if they did, the N900 might well be your solution. Of course you'll have to pay for the unlocked GSM version and you'll probably only get to use T-Mobile's 3G network in the USA.... - Mark Zip

Most depressing task brought on by dumpster: throwing out flood damaged records. Worst so far: unpeeled UV banana cover.
Should read "VU" not "UV". you knew that, of course - Mark Zip
When did Robert Scoble stop importing his tweets over to Frienfdfeed? I just noticed it now ---:(
Yesterday. - Robert Scoble
of course you could just make him an imaginary friend and import his tweets into your feed yourself - Mark Zip
Why did I stop bringing my Tweets in? Because your fellow community members abused me about them. And I don't like them coming in here. If you want to talk to me about that other service, you know where to find me. I'm keeping FriendFeed on FriendFeed from now on and that other service over there. - Robert Scoble
@Robert so are you going to quit all your feeds in now? - Lindsay
Her: nope. But I'm not bringing in anything from that other service. - Robert Scoble

Business class airfare on Emirates Airlines: $10,000. Five nights at the Shangri-La Hotel, $2500. 18 minutes at TEDx Dubai: priceless.

My sister's at the "exploratory"phase. They want to know what she might speak about for 18 minutes at TED Long Beach next February. Gulp! General topic is "What the World Needs Now".

WTF! Microsoft Security Essentials does not work for 64 bit XP. Support forums confirm 32 bit XP, 32 bit Vista/7 and 64 bit Vista/7 only. Although the System Requirements page makes no mention of a distinction between 32 bit and 64 bit OSs and merely says "Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3); Windows Vista (Gold, Service Pack 1, or Service Pack 2); Windows 7 " How can MS release an important product like this and not have it for an OS which *is* currently supported. - Mark Zip
MS is trying to phase out XP 64-bit I guess. - George Mag from iPhone
@sarahlane aren't chaps, by their definition, "assless?"
That implies that one can obtain chaps with the ass portion included... - Johnny from iPhone

Chrome buries Windows rivals in browser drag race -
"According to tests run by Computerworld, Chrome 3.0, which Google launched last week, is the fastest production version of the top five Windows browsers. Chrome renders JavaScript more than nine times faster than Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 (IE8), is over five times faster than Opera Software's Opera 10, two-and-a-half times faster than Firefox 3.5 and 30% faster than Safari 4.0." - Matt Cutts from Bookmarklet
I just cannot wait for the full Mac version - the dev preview is .... er .... iffy! - Phill Price
So how about testing them against pages with *no* javascript. JS is not the only marker for speed, right? - Mark Zip
Yeah Matt, what are ALL the main factors, when comparing the speed of a browser? - Nithin Jawali
My guess is that pages with no JS are pretty fast in all the browsers. But if you want to run anything AJAX-y like Gmail, you want a browser that does fast JavaScript. - Matt Cutts
Its good. Lots of js now on every web pages. speeding up the js will really a big achievement and boost its usage among net user. - Satya Prakash

I do like FF and use it almost every day. Wouldn't it be great if FB either left it alone so we can continue to use it as "professionals," or somehow incorporate it into a more "mature" version of FB that didn't have all the annoying, time-wasting apps, games, etc. I'd much prefer a totally customizable FF "wall." - Cathryn Hrudicka

I prefer FF over twitter and facebook, but all my friends are on twitter and/or facebook. Maybe facebook will get it right this time now that it has acquired FF. If they simplify it a bit more without removing functionality. Then I would spend a bit more time on FB. Lets hope all goes well with the merger. If not I'm jumping ship and going over to Google Wave. oh wait, I'm going to go with Google Wave regardless! ;-) - Captain Jack

@scobleizer i can speak english and i beg you to remove bann from all russian friendfeeders, because we are all from it-community, working in internet companies and we came with peace, you asked for feedback from friendfeed addicts — we show you how really it is being frf addicts, we change names, we chat, we making things that are not serious. Why so serious? Unlock people, they are not bots, they just playing the game of real addicts and have fun. Common. - ideali
shaun: I started this post to demonstrate that a lot of us are still here and aren't likely to leave. At least not quickly. So, life goes on after FriendFeed gets acquired by Facebook. Point proved. - Robert Scoble

Hector: good morning! I need coffee. - Robert Scoble
@robert yes they (we will) stay here, I think tat the migration process will take time and after reading @Paul Bucheit, I think that what we all are trying to get even if we don't say it explicitly is to preserve a kind of intimacy (beeing a part of the Huge faceBook community) don't mean that FF community will preserve their intimacy, why should a community be a plan one, (let imagine a community as a set of sub-community) that all. - abdellah

@Robert RE "I have enough noise in my life. I don't need to have more" - isn't it a lot of noise having 26K subscriptions and 46K subscribers on your frf account? I'm kind of surprised - you create a community that large around yourself, yet when you see a new and unusual activity you just block it right away. - Based on real people

@Robert, patience? Who's talking about patience? It's about curiosity, not patience. When something strange and unusual happens around you, you can either try to stop it or try to see what it can develop into. You choose to stop - and it stopped. Well, not stopped - just moved to some other place. And do you really know what it was and what it was about to bring you? - Based on real people

James-The black statue on the cross-walk behind 'the blues brothers' (I don't know--it's kind of a stretch) - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
Dead Kennedys, Korn - Clare Dibble
Are those bags of raisons by the fruit stand in the lower right?---I'm going to say that they represent Marvin Gaye. - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
Wow, no one caught Sex Pistols yet? - Lindsay
Rolling Stones too - Lindsay
Is there a bigger version of this somewhere? - Lindsay
Lindsay, "Better image to work with" - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Rob, that was an "Iron Maiden" - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
LOL--that's better... - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
Prince, and I think the "raisins" might be Cranberries. - Clare Dibble
Bloc party - mike fabio
Seal (from the poster behind the White Zombie) - Gabe
The Eels (assuming those things on the street under the queen's pistols are eels) - Gabe
Is it "Blues Brothers" or "Blues Traveller"? - Joe Beda
Tree on mountain is "Bush"? - Joe Beda
Clare: are you sure it's Dead Kennedys, and not Presidents of the USA? - Gabe
Gabe, it's definetly the Dead Kennedys, the pictures on the wall are of JFK and Robert Kennedy, who was never a president. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Joe, I believe the tree on the hill is a cypress, Cypress Hill. It's a bit big for a bush. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Sticks or The Sticks (two different bands I think). And didn't we see this in 2005 or 2006? - Mark Zip
Mark, Styx and yeah it has a calendar that says Aug 21, 2006 - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Cornershop - Christian (Simply X)
The Pet Shop Boys - Christian (Simply X)
Led Zepplin - Christian (Simply X)
James, Styx maybe, but there is at least one other band on my shelf called Sticks. And I seem to remember "The" Sticks also. I wonder if we get to count the same thing as two spellings and therefore two towards our total? ;-) - Mark Zip
Could the M&Ms on the ground by the smashed pumpkins be the band Sweet? - Mark Zip
James: you're right. The picture posted is too small to be able to tell for sure who the other photo was. But really, RFK was shot while running for president, so it's not out of the question. - Gabe
White Zombie. - Colette
Big Fat Gray Boulder - cvkathy
Shadow on Ground - cvkathy
i love that so much lol - shannonmorley

Would You Pay For Firefox Extensions? -
AdBlock Plus, NoScript and Firebug - Yes, probably. Of these, I think only NoScript takes donations at the moment. Others would have to have a long track record of stability and updates before they would get support. So, in a pay-for-play world, how would extensions get that track record? - Mark Zip

Is Office 2010 the largest JavaScript app in the world? -
Is Office 2010 the largest JavaScript app in the world?
Are you sure it is a javascript app? Is it not using Silverlight? - sarvesh
Sarvesh: In the video they say that it's running using Ajax and Java without any silverlight or other plugin. - Roy Herrod
Roy is right. No Silverlight. All JavaScript. - Robert Scoble
Robert, let me tell you right now, the fact that all that runs in Javascript, is one of the finest pieces of modern engineering i've seen on the web - Mark
Shaun: Microsoft invented Ajax, so should know how to do it! - Robert Scoble
The sheer mount of coding required to take every office feature and correspond it to javascript and match functionality is just insane, i mean millions of work hours - Mark
it also allows them to get all the OS's and support for most top browsers is also great . - Kashif Khan
Which means it will work on the iPhone - Jesse Stay
Office on Linux :) - Kashif Khan
Microsoft deserves massive credit for getting all this to work cross-browser, it's absolutley stunning. - Mark
I still wonder why Paul Thurott dismissed all these office online rumours as "silly" up to a few days ago and yet he has the best technical coverage on the web of Office 10. - Mark
Maybe he was just playing the game - Mark
they were under embargo - Kashif Khan
Yeah but the easiest thing to do is just say nothing, not say the rumours are false and then the next day have lots of coverage on it. - Mark
Well I am all for it, them using javascript. But with such a huge web application running on IE7 or IE8 isn't going to be easy due to the slow javascript engine. So are we gonna see an update to the browser then? Probably IMO. - sarvesh
Maybe they want everyone to start using Chrome! - Californian
That's a really good point, all the browsers now love to quote javascript speeds. So Office will be faster on some browsers then - Mark
Maybe thats why they showed it in FF 3.5 on those Scoble videos! Probably sucks on IE! - Mark
That and I am guessing they don't want to show off their new browser. Man I so wish they have a faster IE. I have pretty big web app and even after all the optimization I could think off it still runs so bad that I don't support IE yet. - sarvesh
Mark: He demo'd Word in IE at one point (in one of the videos) but then Scoble encouraged him to swap back to FF by asking about it - So I don't think there's going to be a problem, you'd expect they would have tested it and tweaked it alot so it works as well in IE as other browsers - Roy Herrod
Robert, did you happen to ask them what is happening to given that they keep mentioning Windows Live as the place where this stuff is going to be hosted? - Jamie
Jamie: I didn't ask that, sorry. - Robert Scoble
No worries Robert. My suspicion is its going to be mothballed. - Jamie
Jamie: I can't answer your question because I don't have contacts inside Microsoft, I'd guess that the new Office web apps become Office Live Workspace at some point or that OLW is rebranded to something different. - Robert Wawrzyniak
I know this was a surprise for me, I thought it would be silverlight. I bet they'll do an enhanced silverlight version eventually. - Ben Reierson
Has this been demoed running on Linux + FF3.5? That's always the true test as to whether they're using some sneaky tricks to run native apps in the browser... - Steve and 4 other people
It funny how he names Safari, Firefox and IE as their 'Top Tier' browsers. Opera and Chrome aren't even an afterthought. - Arawak
Sucks, <3 Chrome, but we have such a small market share it might be financially irresponsible to code for it :( :( - Mark
Doesn't this just make the surface area for javascript attacks and exploits much much larger? Scripting is already the source for a huge number of problems. Now we're gonna *really* hafta run the browser in a sandbox. And if we catch a nasty in the online version of the document/spreadsheet and save it, will the nasty transfer to the local client/machine when we get back to the office? - Mark Zip
Twitter goes down. Do you head to FriendFeed to express your thoughts in real time, Facebook, some place else?
facebook - Wesley Barrow
I guess it would depend on whether the ff > twitter > fb stream were to get updated all at once when twitter came back. If it dumped all of my ff all at once onto my fb page things might get hairy with the folks over there in the fb walled garden - Mark Zip

Jorn Barger is still on top of my Top 40 list.
Great to see that Jorn is still getting props. What a fascinating character. I well remember the frisson of finding Robot Wisdom and the knowledge that there was a real, ornery guy thinking hard about this stuff. Infuriating too, of course. They were sad days for many of us when he went on one of his periodic hiatuses. I wonder if he and Dave eventually "made up". - Mark Zip
He was angry with me, but I was never angry with him. - Dave Winer

Official Google Blog: Let's make the web faster. Good discussion topic for Building43. How can we all work together to make the web faster? -
Get rid of Google Analytics :) (actually, you just need to delay load until after the page is finished loading) - Paul Buchheit
@Paul Do pages still load slow if analytics is in the footer instead of the header? - EricaJoy
Let's remove all this useless design stuff on websites. Remove all flash from the web. - Charbax
everyone download Google Chrome first! - iTbay
Erica, putting it in the footer helps a lot, but it will still make the browser animate and potentially delay other js from executing, which will slow the page. External JS and CSS are a big cause of slow web pages. - Paul Buchheit
Do you think eliminating spam would speed up web traffic? (Kind of like trying to eradicate cockroaches in Texas though) - RobinDotNet
Get rid of all the hackers and spammers jamming up servers and bandwidth :) - LPH™ and his dog P™
iTbay: already done that! Paul: we should do a video with you about some of the things you've done at FriendFeed to make this consistently one of the fastest sites I visit. - Robert Scoble
@Robert I'd watch that. - EricaJoy
Google needs to add PHP support in App Engine, it'll make all Wordpress blogs, phpbb forums and mediawiki sites faster when hosted for free on that. - Charbax
Make like the old days ... stop using full URLs internally. (Of course, you 'might' lose a little SEO juice too ?! ) - Charlie Anzman
@robert that would be a great interview with @paul - andy brudtkuhl
Charlie, the feeds need to have full URLs, and it's a pain to use different URLs in pages vs their feeds. - Bruce Lewis
I'd like to know what they use to decode incoming emails. My use of metamail+lv is a hack, and I'd like to know what cleaner tools are out there. - Bruce Lewis
Regarding Analytics slowing down page loads, I was surprised to see that it's not always its fault. Per the status bar in Firefox does not always blame the correct resource when the page is hanging. - Mihai Parparita
i'm trying desperately not to be cynical and cringe at all the shiny happy people in the video telling us that they just want to make the web faster because, golly, that's what people want and it will make the world a better place, tra la la -- without mentioning how it might benefit Google financially ("Google Internet! Now with more ad impressions per second!") the Steve Souders quote... more... - Karim
i think there are a lot of good technical ideas already around (e.g. jumbo frames, IPv6) but getting everyone to implement them is another story. so i'm not sure how much "making the web faster" boils down to political consensus-making on existing solutions, and how much of it involves radical changes like replacing TCP/IP. - Karim
Paul: I just have "" in my hosts file - Gabe
Making the web faster is a result of building proper web sites. The subject should be "Let's build better websites so they perform faster". - Gilbert Harding
Ah, but what constitutes "proper" or "better"? There are a lot of subtle details to page (let alone ajax/dhtml) optimization that are not well known, and plenty that is only now becoming well-understood by those of us who deal with it daily. The tools and techniques that Souders and many others are working on should help everyone who cares about making their sites/apps faster. @Karim:... more... - Joel Webber
Joel -- if the justification for a faster internet is "glaringly obvious," then why does Google need to mention it on their blog? not only does it deserve a mention, but *research,* quote: "...our research indicates that people prefer faster, more responsive apps." File under "Duh?" News Flash: Google Research discovers people do not like eating excrement. Film at 11. if they bothered... more... - Karim
Amen to those asking for less use of scripting and GA in particular. Scripts are dangerous and GA slows us down. I run noscript on my machine and deny GA as a matter of routine. when I encounter a machine with scripting tuned on I notice the impact on page load times. If hosts provided decent, powerful and pretty stats packages as a matter of course site owners would not have to use GA. @gabe: Null routing FTW ! - Mark Zip
Off-domain ad networks are even worse than GA. - Gabe
Distributed processing methods such as HTML5 in-browser database, similar to Google Gears, can make a user's experience less dependent on central server performance and network latency. - Mike Chelen

Am I the only one who feels like USA defeating ESP today is like USA defeating USSR at Lake Placid in 1980?
No, Wil, you're not the only one. A massive win for the USA, and against the run of play too. Now, let's make sure we get to the World Cup! BTW - One of the only good things about living in a country which doesn't go mad for *football* is that I could work all day and be safe in the knowledge that I could go home and watch the DVR without having the surprise ruined. ;-) - Mark Zip

@answers Are you going to buy the new iPhone 3G S? Why or why not? M$1
I would if I didn't just switch to ATT in January. - Richard Leiter
I got my 3G in September, so I'm not sure what my options are for upgrade. But if it's $399 for the 3GS, I'll buy one. - Paul Ring
Not with the current 3G upgrade path. - Ben Newton
I will definitely be buying one,I have a first generation iphone and have been holding out for this day. - Lee
Yep I am upgrading to the 32GB one! - Susan Beebe from BuddyFeed
No, as it would cost me way too much now as I bought the 3G a year ago. Disappointed. :( - Steve de Mena
Nope, mid contract and way too much for the upgrade - Tom Searing from twhirl
yes, but waiting for the Jul 11 anniversary when I bought it to make the switch. otherwise iphone 3G S will cost too much - Ernie Oporto from twhirl
Nope, because AT&T's non-qualified upgrade is too harsh. If I could upgrade the 3G I bought in January for $199, then I might consider it. - Jandy
Nope. The UK upgrade path is crazy for current 3G owners. :( - Aaron Dyer from Alert Thingy
yes absolutely. i am still using the original iPhone, which I have to say still works great for being two years old. I didn't see that much of an advantage to upgrading when the first 3G came out, but now there seems to be enough new features that it makes it worth it. - Jennifer
@Jandy AT&T's upgrade policy is no different than any other cell carrier's policy, in making you wait 2 years before upgrading for a greatly reduced price. I am excited that they're subsidizing at all actually; when I bought my original iPhone there wasn't any subsidizing and I paid full-price *and* was locked into a 2-year contract. If you ask me, their policy now is a lot better than it was then. - Jennifer
Just got my 3G for work going to try to upgrade. Not to fussed though. - Jason Remnant
I would buy it now if I was upgrade eligible. Oh well, gotta wait until December. We'll see if it is a big deal. Personally I wouldn't want 3Gers to comfy, and get 'em while the upgrade itch is hot. - sailorj
No because they aren't available with Verizon :( - Adam Martin
No. Will wait for the next iphone when my two year contract comes up for renewal. iPhone 3GS features and price are not worth it for me. - Carlos
Yes. I have a first gen iPhone, the better battery life, autofocus camera, video, gps and compass are enough & being faster also - Shannon Clark
No. Like many others, I'm mid contract. I'd pay $299 for the update, but not $399 or $499 depending on the model. - Michael Groner
upgrade price not worth it for features i get with quickpwn - Tyler Gillies from email
Tyler - you are just flat out wrong. A jailbroken iPhone won't have: autofocus camera (of higher quality), builtin compass, be ready for next gen data networks (up to 7mps), have a faster processor & better battery. I'm upgrading from a 1st gen so the diff is big if I had a 3G it might be closer - Shannon Clark
i was mostly using hyperbole. those features just aren't worth the upgrade price to me. - Tyler Gillies
Just checked, I have to wait until February. Aarrrgh! - Paul Ring
Not available on my provider, another year on contract. Also starting a new job, so will probably get a company mobile (Crackberry). So probably not getting one any time soon. - David Wright from twhirl
Data plans for AT&T are still keeping me from getting into smartphone craze...yet I may be cheap. - Manuel Mas
Here in the UK if you have the existing Iphone 3G you probably have at least 6 months of contract to run - bit of a rollercoaster - June 19th then damn January 2010 :( - David W
Still no pricing here. T-Mobile haven't updated their tariffs, you can arrange to be notified on the 19th though... :-S - David Wright from twhirl
I preordered a 3GS last night from the online apple store. I still have a first ten phone, so thankfully I qualified for the lower pricing. - Beau Liening
Yes, but when I can get the subsidized price (December) - Martin Johnson
definitely not before the contract renewal is possible and who knows how I will feel about it then.. - David W
Probably not. iPhone 2g still works great for me. - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
@Jennifer, I know, and I agree that the initial iPhone customers got screwed, too. But just because it's an industry standard doesn't mean I have to agree with it or like it. I haven't jailbroken because I was hoping to get a new handset with video support, but I may jailbreak instead in the meantime and pick up the new handset when my contract is up. - Jandy
Planning to!! Features that are going to stay for a while from now. The problem in India is the price tag (31 & 36 grands). Looking forward to get one from the US. But then AT&T sucks there :O - Praveen Vasudev
I setup a POLL for this topic at Let me see the stats! - Frode Stenstrøm
No - bad working out by o2 with regard to current 3g owners and the length of their contracts. I'm guessing they know hardcore Apple fans will buy out the remainder of their contract to get the new phone. That, I'm not going to do. I don't have £464 upfront to end my current contract and purchase the new handset. - Charley M
It is really irritating me how much people are complaining about this. No one cared about their 2 year contract when the only thing to look forward to was a $30 flip phone. Maybe contracts are a dumb idea but that's the way it is. Get over it. You just received a subsidized phone a year ago. What makes you think you deserve one every single year? It's nothing that they're doing to... more... - Jennifer
already brought 16G 3Gs set for delivery purchased it as soon as the Apple store opened back up - Kim Landwehr
In 6 months or so. O2 have the same idiotic plan as AT&T. It would cost me a fortune to cancel and then sign a new contract. - Roberto Bonini
Yes, my Blackberry/Verizon contract is up, and I've heard people love At&T so I'm switching. - Greg Birch
@Greg Birch - pls tell me you're kidding. - John Fogarty from twhirl
Yes, but It's like having to choose a contract with the Mafia, Yakuza or the Triads. Eventually you're going to lose an appendage. - Greg Birch
that's a very accurate description. As long as you realize that AT&T = Yakuza. :) - John Fogarty from twhirl
I can dial without a pinky... - Greg Birch
Nope. I just purchased my 3G in November. I'll wait and see what Apple comes up with in the next 18 months to replace mine when my contract expires. - Bryan Clark
Nope---happy with my 3g. - Kelly W.
AT&T sucks, and I am not willing to allow Apple to decide what applications can be put on my phone - Chad Albert
I like AT&T but, I sure don't like their iPhone plan. Might get me a G1 or another HTC product that will take android. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Unfortunately, I just bought two iPhone I'm going to wait a while. It seems every time I purchase an Apple product, they drop the price soon thereafter. Which is okay -- since I'm willing to overpay for Apple products but not pay discount for anything Microsoft at this point. - Curt Mercadante
Nope - N97 unlocked for me. Even at ~$600 it's cheaper than the Iphone. Plus better camera, physical keyboard, FM transmitter, etc etc - Mark Zip
I've been waiting to buy an iPhone and plan to make the 3GS my first one. - Herb Hernandez
I just got an Android instead! - Ric Johnson
lol loyal customer tax - Tyler Gillies from email
I'm getting the new iPhone 3GS because I have been delaying my buy decision for new cellphone waiting for Apple to drops it's new iPhone - Sebastiaan van den Akker
