Stephen Mack
Just had a meeting with the CEO and received a gift package in recognition of my 15 years at TiVo. Wow. Feeling thankful and appreciated.

They should appreciate you because from what I've seen, you kick a lot of ass. - Spidra Webster
Thanks, Spidra! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Cool! So nice to be appreciated! (Thought they might have finally given you a screensaver, though. ;-P ) - Anne Bouey
Congratulations, Stephen! I'm positive it's very well deserved! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Congrats Stephen! - Me
Congrats! I'll be right over to help you drink that Dom Perignon! Lol! - Yvonne from FFHound!
Congratulations, Stephen! - Stephan Planken
Congrats Stephen, you rock! - Louis Gray
Congrats! You deserve it. - Mary Carmen
The box is stunning, and well deserved. - Scott. Cat Herder.
Congratulations, Stephen! - Brent Schaus
Congrats! Stephen is the man! - imabonehead
Thank you, everyone! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Congrats, Stephen! I'm convinced it's well deserved :) - Eivind
Well, they give it to everyone who makes it 15 years. ;) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I hope you'll still drink Dom P from the TiVo trophy like a race winner :) - Eivind
Awesome! Very well deserved. :) - Jenny H. from Android
Now you have 15 years of TV broadcasts to watch that were recorded while you were at work. - Vezquex

Our data center (SVColo) performed an upgrade to their core network switch this evening. Something went wrong, and the operation took 30 minutes instead of 5. We apologize for the problem.
we are back - K.D.
I wondered. Glad you are back! - Rachel Lea Fox
No problem. Just don't scare us like that again ;) - Mark Krynsky
Ok otherwise it was going to be an topic on Twitter. - Madhav Tripathi
I forgive you. - Vezquex
I thought FriendFeed would have deployed mobile datacenters across the US by now. - imabonehead
Talk to Scoble about getting you guys on Rackspace :) - Jason Cronkhite from Alert Thingy
Jason: we would love to host FriendFeed but any hoster will screw up from time to time so I would rather win their business on the strength of our technology and service. Our CEO puts his personal cell phone out there (I don't know of any other hosting company CEO that does that, plus mine is +1-425-205-1921). not to mention I have some major motivation to make sure FriendFeed stays up. :-) - Robert Scoble
Compete with Wave and let people run their own Friendfeed servers. - Vezquex
Thanks! I almost sent SOS via Twitter...but u guys were fast! :D - Roshan Ramachandran
Oh, and it was nice of you guys to arrange your downtime for when I was flying and off the net! :-) - Robert Scoble
The upside is I saw the 'new and improved' twitter web interface for the first time. When do I have time to do that normally :D - Micah
@scoble, that's just it. I've only known Rackspace to screw up once and it was due to some guy driving a car into the data center. Plus, all the other perks you mentioned. - Jason Cronkhite
Andy, long time :) - Micah
Something changed with this downtime, didn't it? All images are now hosted on friendfeed-media.com instead of the old i.friendfeed.com - Mitch
Mitch, the friendfeed-media change was deployed yesterday and unrelated to the outage. - Paul Buchheit
good - solncee
siktirtmeyin datacenter'ınızı. FF gitti diye ödümüz koptu aq. - Çağrı

Brain overload explains missing childhood memories - http://news.ca.msn.com/top-sto...
Brain overload explains missing childhood memories
"Scientists -- and parents -- have long wondered why we don’t remember anything that happened before age 3. As all parents know, no matter how momentous an event is in a toddler’s life, the memory soon drifts away and within months there isn’t even a wisp of it left. Now a new study shows that “infantile amnesia” may be due to the rapid growth of nerve cells in the hippocampus, the brain region responsible for filing new experiences into long-term memory. (...) Frankland suspected that memories actually got filed away into long-term storage, but that the hippocampus lost track of where they’d been stacked during the rapid growth phase that takes place in the first few years of life." - Amira from Bookmarklet
"As the hippocampus matures, huge numbers of new neurons come on line and need to be hooked into existing circuits, he says. The most likely scenario is that in all that restructuring, the brain “forgets” where it stored the memories. As the expansion slows down, the brain can better keep track of where everything is filed away – so long-term memory gets better as youngsters get older.... more... - Amira
I always thought it was because of synaptic pruning but the effect is the same. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Interesting...!! - Harold Cabezas
It seems so obvious now. Thanks. - Vezquex

LCD monitors don't have a degauss button.
One of the advantages of not using an electron gun to excite atoms to emit photons? - Victor Ganata
I miss it, actually. - Andrew C (✔)
The move from CRTs to LCDs made a big difference in the health of my eyes and sinuses, to be honest. I don't miss CRTs at all. - Victor Ganata
Sinuses? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Yup, sitting in front of a CRT would dry *everything* out. - Victor Ganata
Some days, the degauss button was all that kept me going. - Meg VMeg
Hey, there's a $1 app for iOS to "degauss" the screen. - Andrew C (✔)
I always wondered if you could cause significant harm to anyone if you took the electron gun out of the casing and tried to shoot people with it, but then I realized that it doesn't really do much if you're not inside a vacuum except arc and short out. - Victor Ganata
BZZZZ!! *wiggle* - Big Joe Silence
On the other hand, I wonder if an electron gun would work as a space weapon…. - Victor Ganata
Now I want a degauss app! - Vezquex

July is coming and I'm still using Google Reader. Where are people ending up? Feedly?
Yoleo Reader, digg, theoldreader, OwnCloud, feedly, feedbin, NewsBlur, netvibes, inoreader, commafeed, feedafever, MultiPLX, Minimal Reader, Feedwrangler, noowit.com/pbeta, - Todd Hoff
I think I'm going to end up relying entirely on Flipboard. - Victor Ganata
I'm using Feedly but already missing Google Reader - Shevonne from iPhone
I use Feedly - Rodfather from Android
Feedly. - Melly
NewsBlur. - Akiva
An 80-line ruby script run via cron that just reads my feeds from a text file, checks for new articles, and emails them to me. I tag incoming articles with a filer and use the "Multiple inbox" feature of Gmail, navigate with keyboard commands, and at this point the flow is pretty much indistinguishable from how I used to use Reader. Except now everything is in one place. Actually better than Reader in that sense. Moved off Reader the day after the announcement. - Ken Sheppardson
Interesting and cool idea Ken. Using email as the interface makes a lot of sense. - Todd Hoff
I'm waiting until the last day… - Amit Patel
RSSDemon - JAson FLeming from Android
I'm hoping the Digg project works out. - Ken Morley
Feedly - MoTO Moca Blend
FeedDemon - John (bird whisperer)
I'm also waiting til the last day. - imabonehead
Feedly. Actually NOT missing GR, except that I read fewer items in full. - Walt Crawford
Feedly. - Steven Perez
I've tried the lot and not happy with any of them. Feedly is OK but slow so Flipboard (like Victor) is my current fave as I'm really loving the new feature that lets you create your own magazines. Like Ken I'm hoping Digg Reader will be good but it's Flipboard for me. - Kol Tregaskes
Google Reader will be missed. :-( Nothing beats is atm. - Kol Tregaskes
Commafeed. Although it was overloaded yesterday - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Winter is still coming. - Todd Hoff
There Is No Google Reader Replacement, Only Alternatives - http://techcrunch.com/2013.... Given how little experience there is with Digg it's not clear how they could be a winner. - Todd Hoff
We must be getting close, here's another The Race To Replace Google Reader http://readwrite.com/2013.... Notable for an ad block type I've never seen before. The ad stays put and the content just kind of inches up as you read. I guess that works. Some of the commentors think GR is easy. There's a lot more to it than just RSS. - Todd Hoff
It would be nice if feedly had tagging as well, but it's looking good so far. - Todd Hoff
This is a good explanation of to subscribe to RSS feeds via Feedly on chrome: https://getsatisfaction.com/feedly... - Todd Hoff
Yoleo. Imports Google Reader list. No ads. Clean design. You can donate if you are able. - Vezquex

Gillmor Gang: Mo' Beta Blues - http://techcrunch.com/2013...

The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — welcome the summer solstice with a dip in the gene pool. With Google Glass two months new and iOS7 in developers' hands, the stage is set for the unification of app notifications across OS and device. Microsoft releases Office for the iPhone, and Facebook Snapchat's Instagram. But to quote Miles, it's kind of blue, and so what. Meanwhile most of Glass functionality is already working on iOS7, with just a few weeks (?) until an official launch. With competitors like these, we can look forward to harvesting the fruits of this incredible mobile shift. - Steve Gillmor
Wow, you still do this show, and it's the same old gang. I'm going to check it out again. Been awhile for me. - Vezquex from Android
And FF is still running and collecting RSS/Atom. A robust web service frozen in time. - Vezquex from Android

Spidra - They made them for a short time. I think it was some kind of cross-promotion with a movie or something, but they were black, white and gray. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I'd guess it was for Pleasantville. - Spidra Webster
I lied. It wasn't a movie crossover. It was a "find our colors" promotion for whatever reason. I think, if you bought a bag of the black & white M&Ms and found colored M&Ms in it, you won some kind of prize. http://www.bing.com/images... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now) - http://flickr.com/photos...
What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma

1.12 - Tinfoil 2.0
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ

.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren

So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah

Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul
My new ratio: 0.76 all time (old methodology .52).... this week 1.39 - David HC Soul
*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah

Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah

Thank you Nicholas and MiniMage! - Micah
Yeah, that's a decent upward rise in comments, Nicholas. - Micah
.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler

.82 as of right now. edit: on January 8th it was 0.39 -- when I saw that, I decided to make more of an effort to comment. When I hit 10k "likes" I decided I wouldn't "like" anything else until I also had 10k comments. - Bren
And thank you Jimminy, Pete, Bren and Penguin! - Micah
2.47 as of right now. - Jonas, Leper of FF
Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - Not Me
0.58 - Absentee
Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah
You're welcome. I hope the results do some good. :-) - Absentee

Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah

Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah

ROFL. - Derrick
I use to have one as a pet - VALZ SCARLETTS MAMA
:D - Micah
were you able to STEM the GRAPE and furious attack? :-) - Morgan
ROFL...I have no idea where that rolling of my index finger thing even came from. First time I've ever noticed that I do it...and I don't think it was the only time on the video that I did that. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
It's your tell, Alex. - Micah
But perceived it not, the mantis did. - Micah
Ha! - SAM
I think he's practicing playing the skin flute. - Akiva

Yeah, sorry I couldn't respond to that one before. :-) - Kevin Fox
well i be darned .... we now can rejoice, since fast paced additions to already good product are surely fastly coming about off the feedpipe ... it'l be a hectic season of finest upgrades ... I'm sure they'l start with keyboard shortcutze. ... I mean Google Reader rules on that. Intelligent to the extreme. ..Google.com, on the other hand - are we sleeping? .. not even "/" ??.. and that... more... - pb:
Congrats Ben! Totally agree with Jason. Our latest project wouldn't have become feasible without Ben -- I'm just so glad we managed to get a fraction of his time before he left! :) - Simon
Congratulations, Ben! You're joining an awesome team. - Anne Bouey
Woohoo! Another Googler :) - Tim Hoeck

Why on earth does he use the Duck Hunt theme? - Vezquex
I don't know.. but it is awesome! :) - Tim Hoeck
Wow, looks like somebody bumped this! - Kevin Fox
I think there were a bunch of spam comments made to some 2009-era posts by FF employees. For some reason even after the spam is nuked, the post stays bumped. - Stephen Mack
Yes, I blocked a spammer that was bumping old posts about FF themes and what not. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Well, let's see this as an opportunity to raise a virtual glass to Ben and FriendFeed-that-was! - Kevin Fox
It probably had something to do with the Tornado 2.2 release. I noticed Ben was the one who posted about the release on HN earlier. Edit: Or it could have just been a spammer. *shrugs* - Not Me
I don't think it had anything to do with the tornado release - a spammer bumped a bunch of Bret's old posts today. - Ben Darnell
Here, let me save future spammers some time: Hello my name is ____ and I am an attractive young ____ _____ and I would like to contact with you so that together you and I can ___ with ____ while _____ in a highly ____ manner.

Calm yourselves now, people. Facebook will integrate and invigorate InstaG. just like they did with Friendfeed.
LLOL! - MiniMage
I would like to be the first to welcome them to the locker bin, or archive shelf, or broom closet, or whatever it is FF is in ever since the FaceBorg assimilation. I really can't remember what it's called right now. - MiniMage
With that said, I'm happy to have FF at all, even if it's on the bottom rack (or whatever it's called). - MiniMage
Ben The Faithful keeps the engines running, and for that I'm grateful. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
kudos to Ben, the FriendFeeder's Friend - MiniMage
Seriously, what was it called? conservatorship? the dead pool? someone remind me! - MiniMage
Has Ben been forbidden from fixing FriendFeed's export to two of Facebook's big competitors, Twitter and email? (It's a half-serious question.) - Bruce Lewis
Ben the Magnificent, Ben the Merciful, Ben the Overlander, Ben the Heir don That - Josh Haley
:D - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I wonder what'll happen to FriendFeed, should Ben ever leave FB. - Tyson Key
The situation is completely different. Friendfeed was acquired at a time when it was not significantly growing. Instagram is growing fast, so Facebook will pay more attention to it. Instagram also fetched a much higher price. - Vezquex

Robert, you forgot iPad. :P - Not Me
Jimminy: Apple covers both iPad and Apple TV. - Robert Scoble
The old adventures of new iPad. - Eric - Watch Me Now
We are trying to get everyone online. I'm on. - Robert Scoble
Has anyone heard about a new iPad? Can't remember the name ;) - Nir Ben Yona
Nir: yeah, the name is wacky. - Robert Scoble
Sooo strange. There must be a reason for that. - Nir Ben Yona
I know Steve will tell me why Im wrong but it just seems like an iPad, no? The New Apps are nice but not selling me to go out and buy one or feel bad I bought a 2 in Sept last year! Why am I wrong? - Phillip Molly Malone
Discussion point: Lack of killer feature (I don't see display as killer) give Android Tablets a chance to catch up! - Phillip Molly Malone
The HD display is definitely a game changer. - Nir Ben Yona
the IOS 5.1 update changes the logo to 4G - Jerry Schuman
oh dear God - Tina Chase Gillmor
Oh, crud. I accidentally hung up - Robert Scoble
Danny is correct... - Jerry Schuman
Correct... their marketing calls HSDPA+ a 4G connection - Jerry Schuman
So what can you do on HD iPad I can't do on iPad 2 without crippling the software the way Apple have with Siri? By the way, if you answer with anything, doesn't that mean that Apple just caused Fragmentation in the iPad community? Or is now that choice! (yes, that is an Android/Apple/Koolaide jibe) - Phillip Molly Malone
Oh, the Apple TV dropped the ball not having Apps! This is the year of Google TV baby! (I hope ;-) ) - Phillip Molly Malone
BTW the guys over at The Verge are saying the European version has LTE support. http://vrge.co/zeNYgh - Nir Ben Yona
iPad as a consumable - Jerry Schuman
Philip: you're wrong. AirPlay is the killer app. - Robert Scoble
Agree with Rober that Airplay is the killer app. - Jerry Schuman
3.1 million pixels - Nir Ben Yona
AirPlay is a great and I may get it but as someone said, its just an adapter! Was thinking that I only use my PC upstairs as a TV now (Media Center). I would replace PC with Google TV! Apps overlaying TV killer. I want a Fantasy AFL app to overlay the Football coverage! - Phillip Molly Malone
Print to PDF is the New Printer! - Phillip Molly Malone
iPhoto for iPad is pretty impressive, isn't that a killer app as well ? - Euro Maestro
Go on John, Get a funny engraving! - Phillip Molly Malone
the thing I noticed the most on this announcement was that I never heard the phrase "reality distortion field" once in the twitterverse - Jerry Schuman
iPhoto looks great but I get that on the iPad 2, right? - Phillip Molly Malone
Just updated my existing Apple TV. Interface changes applied. Dictation available on the iPhone 4s not on the iPad2 (boo!)must need a new chip. Will test Downton Abbey stream to the iPad2 from iTunes later tonight. - Alex de Soto
I am not saying the New iPad isn't great, it is. But it isn't making me sad I got a iPad 2 in September. I would have hated myself if I got an iPad 1 in September before the iPad 2 was released! - Phillip Molly Malone
If you're buying a new iPad, I'd recommend the 64GB WiFi model so you can shoot video and edit aplenty. - Alex de Soto
Speaking of iPads, does any one know if there is a way to watch or listen to this from an iPad ? - Euro Maestro
@euro isn't there a uStream app? - Phillip Molly Malone
I didn't get an iPad 2, so upgrading from a iPad 1 to an iPad 3 is a big speed upgrade. - Phil Windley
9 hours on 4G :) - Nir Ben Yona
steve makes me get the upgrades whether I like it or not - Tina Chase Gillmor

Flifboard? I thought they were in the deadpool already.... Oh maybe that was cuil.... whatevers... - Ben Kepes
The magic was missing - Moe Glitz from iPhone
agree about the high resolution screen, going on how much I love it on the phone. - Hilary Talbot
Philiip: yes. Ben: Flipboard is the best app for iPad and Apple named it app of the year in 2010. - Robert Scoble
I want to know what the audio components are --- the iPad has been only slightly above average so far. - John Taschek
As Apple products normally are, John - Moe Glitz from iPhone
yeah yeah yeah/.// someone put koolaide in your coffee ;-) - Ben Kepes
Tweetbot just tweeted a very interesting thing: "With 4G speeds you can theoretically hit your monthly limit in ~30 secs for the $15 plan and about 10 minutes for the $50 plan." - Nir Ben Yona
Nir: I never hit my 3G limit even with the kids watching YouTube videos. I guess we'll see. - Robert Scoble
Has Microsoft got a chance then? - Moe Glitz from iPhone
The ability to edit (trash photos) from the Photo Stream is one of the best features in iOS 5.1. That was one of the most frustrating things about the iCloud. - Alex de Soto
Definitely worth looking at. - Nir Ben Yona
Hey Scoble - Graham Weston is on Glancee as well - Ben Kepes
Light Sabers ready guys - Moe Glitz from iPhone
If you think the NY times has an issue with the Google Privacy Policy, what are the going to say about Highlight? - Phillip Molly Malone
Android apps a almost always distant, dim relations to what is found on iPhone. - Phil Windley
How can you sell or even own a 16GB HD iPad - Moe Glitz from iPhone
yeah I'm here John - Ben Kepes
Android has a killer app now iOS doesn't: Chrome! That this is pretty! (tongue slightly in my cheek) - Phillip Molly Malone
I love Danny! - Phillip Molly Malone
I think old Windows users tend to look for an alternative to Apple just because. Android has taken Microsoft's spot as the yang to Apple's ying. - Alex de Soto
You can do screen shots on the iPad and then edit in iPhoto. - Alex de Soto
I could use my iPad to swat flies but doesn't mean its easy or a good idea! (unless there is an App for that I don't know about) - Phillip Molly Malone
Hooking up a projector to the iPad makes presentations a breeze. No need to cart around a laptop. - Alex de Soto
Can't believe there hasn't been a rant about the naming convention for "the new" iPad - Jerry Schuman
There wasn't much to the iPad to talk about! - Phillip Molly Malone
Microsoft may lose in Smartphones, but could win in Tablets - Moe Glitz from iPhone
The Verge got a DDos attack during the keynote event. - Nir Ben Yona
Twitter continued to serve up tweets about the event at a much greater rate that the live blogs. Scale. - Phil Windley
As an Aussie, it makes me sad that your talking about Netflix! :( - Phillip Molly Malone
Hey - as a Kiwi I can't get Netflix either.... - Ben Kepes
Apple is already rolling out Retina Display apps. iTunes U and Keynote just got the updates. - Jerry Schuman
No real mention of AirPlay today or Mirroring in HD? - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Steve Jobs would have pushed this today if he was there - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Airplay and 1080P are the two reasons I'm getting a second AppleTV for the living room. - Alex de Soto
But didn't the old AppleTV already have AirPlay? - Phillip Molly Malone
Phillip: yes. - Robert Scoble
Phillip: Yes it does but it does not handle 1080P as far as I can tell. - Alex de Soto
My original AppleTV has Airplay.. not the little black box one - Jerry Schuman
Can Roku show Photos or play Apps - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Don't need content deals, GoogleTV hookes into your HDMI cable box! - Phillip Molly Malone
Add overlay apps that that and you got something! - Phillip Molly Malone
size matters? - Tina Chase Gillmor
Google TV is due for a comeback. - Vezquex
Downton Abbey Season 2 is only available on iTunes no? - Alex de Soto
I don't think most of the world has the amount of online TV content that the US has. I know Australia doesn't! Apps and Websites! - Phillip Molly Malone
Say something John - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Or wave the White Flag - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Roku is on the clearance rack at my local Walmart - Jerry Schuman
Other than on Blu-ray, where else can one stream 1080P? - Alex de Soto
Can you call back? Sorry. - Robert Scoble
Haha... John is rocking back and forward like he just wants the voices in his head to stop! ;-) - Phillip Molly Malone
@Alex - my TV streams 1080p all the time Free over the air! ;-) - Phillip Molly Malone
Hulu+ has an app on iPad! So what's the issue? - Jerry Schuman
Sorry, I think I got a good connection again. Tina, can you call me back? - Robert Scoble
working on it Robert - Tina Chase Gillmor
over the air is 1080i - Vezquex
Hulu is not available in the UK. But BBC iPlayer and Sky Go are great - Moe Glitz from iPhone
ahhh Robert is back - Tina Chase Gillmor
I'd like to move where Phillip lives as 1080p is not available over the air where I live. It's more like 1080i60 encoded with MPEG-2. - Alex de Soto
Hey Danny, Why did no one mention @ based searches in Google showing Twitter first change? (or am I just in a special search experiment group)? - Phillip Molly Malone
gray the studio cat is throwing himself against the door! - Tina Chase Gillmor
Google doesn't need regular TV shows. They run YouTube! - Vezquex
Okay.It might not be 1080p but its good enough! - Phillip Molly Malone
Vezquex. Exactly. - Robert Scoble
So who is causing that reaction from Gray? - Phillip Molly Malone
No Robert didn't! He said everybody had Apple TVs! - Phillip Molly Malone
I think most people learn about and buy Roku from its partnetship with Netflix. Don't have one but my brother and parents have it and love it for Netflix. - Amyloo
Gray is a very social cat. When he hears voices he gets excited and wants to hang out - Tina Chase Gillmor
Apple is about an "experience", hardware is the means to end. It is what separates Apple from everyone else. - Jerry Schuman
Tina, I have a voice-activated cat, too. She goes especially nuts if anybody dares to sing! - Amyloo
Oh, I thought he wanted out of this conversation in the worst way in much the say way John looked like he wanted out a few minutes ago! - Phillip Molly Malone
amy - funny - Tina Chase Gillmor
One of our cat will continue to stand in front of my monitor until I feed her in the morning! - Phillip Molly Malone
Apple’s press conference showed a brand unraveling - http://venturebeat.com/2012... - Phillip Molly Malone
Danny and Scoble really make this show a scream! - Alex de Soto
By the way, that wasn't me agreeing with that article just thought it might interest this crowd! - Phillip Molly Malone
quit losing your damn remotes - Vezquex
Not sure if John agrees, Alex - Moe Glitz from iPhone
Vezquex: you obviously don't have young kids if you say that. :-) - Robert Scoble
Apple needs an App called "Find My Remote." - Alex de Soto
Maybe the coming soon is TV content network? - Amyloo
Apple TV flatscreen will appear this year. iPhone 5 will see the light of day by the end of the year. Full refresh on Macbook and desktop lines.. - Jerry Schuman
Amen Robert and Alex! Its called iPod Touch as remote! Our "cable style box" has iPod based remote and that works for everything except turning the dam thing on and there is no on button! D'oh! - Phillip Molly Malone
That isn't the point... I can access the content. I can even display it on the 50" tv via AirPlay. I don't get the point. - Jerry Schuman
That was perfect "The role of flash..." - Phil Windley
People have jailbroken the AppleTV to play Hulu: http://www.google.com/url... - Alex de Soto
Nobody cares about broadcast television. That's the real truth. - Jerry Schuman
I don't get it, there's an hulu app for ipad and you can airplay it on TV http://bit.ly/cDtQjH - Nir Ben Yona
Apple buys Roku. End of argument. Just to put them out of their misery Robert. - Alex de Soto

Eat a sandwich, Heather. I can say this because I should probably eat a sandwich, too. Several in fact. - Not Me
In my books, NEITHER is okay. - vicster: full-bodied
I don't like it when people say either of those things. I also dislike the "bitch, make me a sandwich" variation on this theme. - Katy S
I'm glad you wrote this, Heather. I just wrote a couple paragraphs about that and chickened out from posting. I'm so fucking sick of this culture putting women's bodies under a magnifying glass.

Spidra- That is such an idiotic thing. Why would anyone, especially on the record, say something offhanded like that? - Heather, 30k Camper
Because there are tons of people to whom sexism is invisible. It's the water we swim in so they don't see it, they just splash around in it. The guy would never say that about a male Chief Justice. But it's somehow completely acceptable to say about a female. And if you bring up the issue, you're just "oversensitive". See how that works? - Spidra Webster

WoW....Mashable!....errrrr....heyyyyy....ummmm....never met anyone famous before, Hiiii....no no J/K So you’re serious in asking your question? So to your point, you’re HOT right now, but YES, lacking in really key areas, but nonetheless you’re raking in the money. - sofarsoShawn
To your question specifically, as @Mashable’s grown you’ve aggrandized & annexed territory over reaching beyond sufficient networks and to answer you question appropriately if you serious and in asking what you can do to improve in my own eyes, we gotta do this in a manner more appropriate than a FF thread. So i Ieft you my info at mashable.com, lemme know, I am severly curious and interested to see now what you think, and yea my apologies as to what I said. Im seriously surprised you care. - sofarsoShawn

FriendFeed API v2: Real-time, OAuth, file attachments, and more
"Today we are launching version 2 of the FriendFeed API for beta testing. We focused on making the API simpler to use, and we added number of compelling new features." Documentation: http://friendfeed.com/api... - Bret Taylor from Bookmarklet
OAuth? Sweet. Thanks a lot for all the new good stuff in the API: can't wait to use it. - Mark Trapp
very nice. great work! - Alfredo 亜瑠布れっど
Yet another reason to like Bret. :-) - Jesse Stay
Great!!! - YungSang from FriendFoo
nice! - Daniel Rust
good job guys, I bet devs are jumping high right now - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Sweet, congrats! - Ivan Zuzak
nice, good to see OAuth support, this will enable a larger 3rd party ecosphere around FriendFeed, I hope - Jeroen De Miranda
After going through the documentation and playing around with some feeds, I love the fact that you can now see the subscriber lists of people who have their feeds set to private as long as you are subscribed to them and authenticate (mimicking the main site functionality). One thing that's absent is a discussion of Direct Messages. Do they show up in feeds if you authenticate? How do we find just direct messages? - Mark Trapp
Mark: direct messages are accessed using the feed ID "filter/direct". Read more about feed IDs at http://friendfeed.com/api.... Also direct messages appear in the "home" feed. - Benjamin Golub
Benjamin: ahhh, I see it now. I missed it when skimming that list over. Thanks! - Mark Trapp
Can you post the wget version of the command line? - Gabe
Gabe: wget --user=bgolub --password=passwd --post-file=MyPhoto.jpg http://friendfeed-api.com/v2... should work. In theory. Edit: nope. I'm not sure it's possible to do with wget. - Mark Trapp
Thanks God it is New API. - AlpB. from iPod
Nice progress here with this release! - Micah
I love it! - friday night
Why is wget questionable? - Gabe
Gabe: wget doesn't support multipart forms as a design decision. If you post a file, FriendFeed returns a 404, and if you post data, the query is too long for wget to handle. - Mark Trapp
Good work, look forward to seeing what developers can create - Joe Dawson

Thanks to bgolub posting his password, I now have all of FriendFeed's secret documents about notorious users, useless metrics, Justin Timberlake's promoting FF on Oprah's show, hiring Colbert as a spokesperson, Ev Williams being just a “distraction”.

Andy Bakun
Favorite sci-fi space ship names...
HeartOfGold.jpg
Heart of Gold from HHGTTG is a good name, but I always pictured it shaped like a running shoe, rather than a sphere. - Andy Bakun
Just about every name in Iain M. Bank's Culture Novels. I'll BRB with some samples. - Anika
Millennium Falcon, obviously. It's such a sports-car sounding name. - Rob H.
I'm browsing Larry Niven and Known Space on wikipedia right now, and there are some really good ones there. The Long Shot and The Lying Bastard. - Andy Bakun
Here's some for inspiration: http://conservationreport.file... Although admittedly, these aren't very individually interesting. Lexx is a pretty good name. - Andy Bakun
The Halo series has some good ones as well; UNSC Pillar of Autumn, UNSC In Amber Clad, Truth and Reconciliation, Shadow of Intent and so on. - Rob H.
Damn, those are good. Truth and Reconciliation reminds me of the weapon named Reason in Snow Crash ("I'm sure they'll listen to Reason"). - Andy Bakun
Okay, here's a few ship names: Size Isn't Everything, Hand Me That Gun And Ask Me Again, Youthful Indiscretion, No More Mr. Nice Guy, Just Read The Instructions, Problem Child, I Blame My Mother, I Blame Your Mother...there's a lot more. - Anika
You almost can't go wrong. Serenity, Star Destroyer, USS Enterprise, Starship Bistromath... - Vezquex
Ah, the Bistromath. Damn, I should have thought of that one. - Andy Bakun
i always wanted to see the Bistromath realised on screen. probly never happen, now. - Big Joe Silence
Is the Hand Me that Gun And Ask Me Again referred to as just The Hand Me or The Ask Me Again? - Andy Bakun
Those Banks names are pretty funny. Is there some reason they're like that (those aren't humor books, right)? - Rob H.
I always liked the way The Defiant implied serious kickassitude. - Andy Bakun
I always loved the Star Destroyer names on the XWing games http://www.theforce.net/swtc... - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I don't know. I think the Culture novels are pretty funny. There's an underlying satirical look at wealth's role in society. The droid/human relationship is humorous, as the droids seem to be the Voice of Conscious/Mom. And considering the heavy violence, in which most of the ships are introduced to you, it's nice to have a moment of levity. - Anika
Also keep in mind that some of the ships are sentient beings and play heavy roles in the stories. - Anika
I liked "Nostalgia for Infinity" from Revelation Space (Alastair Reynolds). In the epilogue for Galactic North, he admits that his ship names have been inspired by the culture novels and other sources. - Matt M (inactive)
Ah, yes...Reynolds did have some great ship names. I totally assumed he was inspired by Banks. We named our daughter after a character in Revelation Space. - Anika
Anika, that's awesome. :) Just pulled the book to confirm: he actually said that "he bows to noone in his admiration of Ian M Banks", but "his ship names were a direct pinch from M. John Harrison's The Centauri Device, not the Culture". - Matt M (inactive)
Nice. I've never read any of John Harrison's work. If I had read that in the book, I would have searched it out. I have a bad habit of not reading the author blurbs. - Anika
I couldn't stop reading after that book ended, so I plowed right through the epilogue hoping to hear that he's planning on continuing the series, picking up some interesting tidbits. It's hard to reach the end of a deep series like that. - Matt M (inactive)
Good list, WorldofHiglet. Accuser, Thunderflare, Inflexible and Death's Head. - Andy Bakun
That ship-size comparison reminded me of another I really liked: Agamemnon from Babylon 5. Greek heros make good ship names. - Matt M (inactive)
Nostromo. - andrei_c
Reynold's Revelation Space naming convention used by the Ultras, transhuman spacefarers: Nostalgia For Infinity , Gnostic Ascension - Ken Chen
Matt, those books are good. I'm currently re-reading Ilium, soon to be followed by Olympos, but It think after I'm done with Simmons I'll revisit the Revelation Space world. - Anika
Ilium and Olympos were such a good read (read them recently after a re-read of the Hyperion Cantos). Loved the Mahnmut and Orphu storyline. I'm just about to start my first read-through of Culture tonight. - Matt M (inactive)
Serenity and Millenium Falcon are my favorites. Of course, I don't watch a lot of sci-fi with space ships (I watch more of the supernatural sci-fi). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Anika++ Ian Banks. My favorite was "Very Little Gravitas Indeed" - mikepk
or maybe "Xenophobe" - mikepk
I really like the Culture names here. Maybe I should read the series. The Halo names are great too. - Andrew C (✔)
It's a really fun series to read, Andrew. - Anika
Highly recommend Banks. My recommendation is usually to start with "Consider Phlebas", I think it's his first culture book and in my opinion, it's the most 'space operatic' of them. I think it's a good intro to the Culture. - mikepk
Anika, have you ever read Bank's non sci-fi stuff? - mikepk
Just picked up Consider Phlebas, after running into the ship names list for The Culture on wikipedia. Sounds really interesting. - Andy Bakun
It is a very good book. My husband seems to like Player of Games better. - Anika
Oops! Just read through this thread again and noticed Mike asked me something. No, I haven't read any of Banks non sci-fi stuff. I've been meaning too. - Anika
Does the Nebuchadnezzar from the Matrix count? - Roberto Bonini
Any of the Culture ships in 'Looking to Windward' - Toby Graham
This thread inspired me to start reading the Culture novels a few months ago. I have to admit that they are by far the best ship names. - Matt M (inactive)
I still have not finished Consider Phlebas, but I did start it... barely. - Andy Bakun
The Normandy from mass effect is pretty awesome. - Guschu
