Hi guys - has MS got plans for Facetime-style video chat via Kinnect? - Tom Gara
Twitter/Ping integration yielded on follower on Ping..seems the platform has a ways to go. - Jim Posner
(Seems like letting peope facetime while watching tv etc in their lounge rooms could be a fairly big deal) - Tom Gara
The next iPad will without a doubt have Retina display and cameras. - Jerry Schuman

The next big thing from Apple is going to coincide with their new datacenter coming online... - Jerry Schuman

The windows phone is really sweet looking - Stephen Pickering
Ballmer buys RIM, or he's done. - clive boulton
Flipboard should be more customizable - Jim Posner
I use PicPlz but then again I have a Droid so no instagram for me - Dave Hoffman / N3PRO
Is the Live Stream STUTTERING for you guys or is it me? - David Lloyd
Fine for me - Stephen Pickering
I like Vignette on android, shared to flickr by email - Kevin Marks
Yup, reading is secondary. As long as it looks good. - Aron Michalski
I agree, Jim. Flipboard is nice but not customizable enough. - Karoli
Steve, just tell it to quit asking you. - Karoli
I like the free filters on Instagr.am - Stephen Pickering
not having a stream problem here in the studio - Tina Chase Gillmor
Vignette is a remarkable bit of software, fun to be able to do so much filtering on Android. - Aron Michalski
Just read Keith Richard's book, my first ibook purchase - Stephen Pickering

haven't bought the Neil Young album. Still enjoying the Dylan release. - Karoli
Aron: Triangulation. - Karoli
I am going through a Little Feat phase. - Jim Posner
geez, Steve. WalMart? - Karoli
kinda neat to listen to the show from week to week, the same topics and different opinions about them. - Aron Michalski
Strange Zuck switched from In-N-Out to McD's @Rengstorff - clive boulton
Clay Shirkey argues this is just the beginning - Jim Posner
Jim; did you check out the Phish Halloween rexux of "Waiting For Columbus"? Remarkable performance. - Aron Michalski
RockMelt just crashed on me...hard. - Karoli
Rockmeltdown. - Aron Michalski
lava lamp online - Karoli
Actually learned about that today..will check it out. Listening to the song "The Fan" yesterday reminded me of Phish. - Jim Posner
Here we go again. - Aron Michalski
Yeah, I like Rockmelt, but today it was slow so I switched back to Chrome - Stephen Pickering
Robert, for crying out loud. FB signin doesn't mean FB rules. It's like saying everyone's a Republican. - Karoli
I like RockMelt as well (thanks Karoli) but screen repaints were getting slow - Jim Posner
Wait until you are able to purchase things with your Facebook ID! - Stephen Pickering
Rockmelt does slow Chrome -- and speed was the most redeeming feature of Chrome. - John Taschek
thanks, but no thanks. I prefer amazon. - Karoli
There needs to be at least ONE alternative to FB for Identity. - Aron Michalski
There is, Twitter - Stephen Pickering
#e2conf: move from consumer and go after enterprise dollar. Whose identity? - clive boulton
Stephen, exactly. I'll use my twitter id to sign in before I use FB - Karoli
Karoli: interesting. I use Twitter 85% of the time, but I always choose Facebook to sign in, because that's a much stronger social graph (only has people who I know on it). - Robert Scoble
I always then add in Twitter, so I have a choice of which service to share stuff with. - Robert Scoble
I'm a Twitter guy too, but lately i've been using FB more and more, as more mainstream friends sign on - Stephen Pickering
I wonder if Google will get into the cloud business in a serious way..Imagine if Google offered a virtual machine instead of an email account for free? - Jim Posner
And Robert, that's precisely why I won't use it. People I know would give me a lot of shit sometimes for places I go. - Karoli
Jim, they do, thats what AppEngine is - Kevin Marks
Me too, but the incredible Kool Aid Klaxon for FB/Apple needs to quiet a little to grant use of a choice. - Aron Michalski
Kevin; exactly. - Aron Michalski
AppEngine give me a Ubuntu VM? I ddn't think so. - Jim Posner
I am thinking free Amazon Machine Images like instances via Google. - Jim Posner
another thing I would never use. I don't want to be spammed by Twitter/FB contacts. Particularly PR professionals. - Karoli
gawd. He's not likeable at all. He's smarmy to the day. - Karoli
Google uses a higher level of abstraction. you have as many Ubuntu (well, Goobuntu) boxes as you need - Kevin Marks
FB is still the group of people who don't really care for my true interests. Twitter, maybe more aligned and add Tea Trolls. Filtering still an issue. - Aron Michalski
OMG, I have entered an alternate reality. I can hardly believe what I'm hearing. - Karoli
This conversation proves to me that FB is as evil as I think it is. To hear the GG extolling Bush? Holy shit. - Karoli
Matthew Norman: How did this wastrel ever find his way to the White House? - The Independent: http://me.lt/138xw - Aron Michalski
Kevin-My point is free vm's, storage and bandwidth-may be in our near future - Jim Posner
oh yeah, politics don't exist until the election year (or during Apple announcements...) - Aron Michalski
my point is that managing an OS instance is in the past - Kevin Marks
Aron, indeed. - Karoli
Can we compare GWB to the iPad? That would be fun... - Aron Michalski
It's still a great phone, it'll sell - Stephen Pickering
Aron: heheh. - Robert Scoble
How about Dick Cheney to FB? That would be easier... - Aron Michalski
We manage OS instances on our laptops/desktops daily. It would be nice if the real horsepower was in the cloud and not on the client. - Jim Posner
Aron, the iPad is smarter and more likeable. - Karoli
Give them a break, they starting from a standing start - Stephen Pickering
It all used to be the same thing...what changed? - Aron Michalski
Cheney to FB is a better comparison. - Karoli
WP7 has push Ballmer to buy RIM - clive boulton
clive: oh, great, that will really help WP7. Not. - Robert Scoble
Windows 7 to Justin Bieber? - Aron Michalski
Good point, Kevin - Stephen Pickering

I will be buying my first Apple computer next year in the Ipad 2 but i Hope it has a high res screen - David Lloyd
...and he doesn't care. - Aron Michalski
having seen Android and being an Iphone owner, I don't see a Windows 7 phone as anything new. Just late. And...I loathe Win7 on the PC - Karoli
1280x1024 at least - David Lloyd
windows and android just make the iphone that much better. :D - Karoli
We've arrived at the real issue. - Aron Michalski
they've wasted plenty on the last few phones... - Kevin Marks
Anyone using AppleTV regularly? Wonder if it is worth checking out. - Jim Posner

I'm not a microsoft target market either, doesn't mean I can't see that they have the ability to sell to the rest of the country - Kevin Marks
Jim, I've heard it's great. I don't see why it's better than Roku tho, which I already have. - Karoli
Plus, Kevin, the Phone 7 is a really good product - Stephen Pickering
200 plus million windows 7 since launch - Tim Jones
Steve-What happened with Silverlight? Is it dead? - Jim Posner
The Scoble train passes me by, the fly over states yearn for his epic coolness and wonder if getting an iphone and FB will get them onboard. It won't. - Aron Michalski
Everyone gets social better than Google. - Karoli
Plus Phone 7 has hooks into Xbox - Stephen Pickering
Also not hearing alot about Microsoft Mesh these days - Jim Posner
Aron: heh. Everyone I met in Omaha had an iPhone or Android too. - Robert Scoble
Jim, I heard Mesh was retired...or integrated into something else. - Karoli
google buzz on google maps is great - Tim Jones
Normal is the new black. Seriously. - Aron Michalski
Aron: I remember when I was the weirdo pushing email. Then the weirdo pushing IM. Then the weirdo pushing social websites. - Robert Scoble
Buzz has location but no followers. - Aron Michalski
Tim Jones, upgrading to Windows xp at work kind of supports your Buzz contention. :) - Karoli
And the weirdo pushing Twitter - Stephen Pickering
Andrew: then you must leave. - Aron Michalski
i'm sticking with windows xp on my netbook - Tim Jones
Microsoft has very deep pockets, I hope they do something real interesting on the software side soon. They don't seem to be very interested in acquisitions. - Jim Posner

TechCrunch is reporting 20% to be fired too - David Lloyd
marc andreessen has made some good bets, not many bad ones - Jim Posner
why rockmelt, stick with flock - Tim Jones
Flock 2.0...Rockmelt is nicely laid out, but function is glitchy. - Aron Michalski
Buzz works for normal people, like Miley Cyrus: http://www.google.com/profile... - Kevin Marks

SAP would be a great acquisition for someone..hopefully not Oracle - Jim Posner
Todays show brought to you by S A P. - David Lloyd
