Earl Is Available!

Yikes, have I been wanting this to happen. "My Name Is Earl" is finally available on iTunes. This is the best American TV ever.

Microsoft R&D and Their 80's Transformers Mentality

I got a kick out of this MacNN Blog review of Microsoft's Transforming Media Device patent. I especially liked--as usual with MacNN's patent reviews--The Bottom Line analysis, including: "Microsoft?s detailed patents clearly go to demonstrate just how off-guard Microsoft was the day that Apple unveiled their iPhone's many innovations and just how off-target Microsoft really was in respect to understanding what device innovation even means." Transformers! More Than Meets The Eye!

I Like PandoraBoy

As I've noted in a previous entry, I've been digging Pandora, the music discovery site. Normally, you have to run it from your web browser. I got tired of trying to remember to keep a Safari window to keep the stream going so I used a dedicated browser, Shiira, just to run it. Well, turns out there's a nice little app that uses Webkit to display Pandora called PandoraBoy from FrozenSilicon Labs. PLUS, it's AppleScriptable so you can assign hotkeys to control volume and skipping and thumbs ups/downs. It can also interface with Growl. And PandoraBoy is free. Can't beat that with a bat.

Wonder if they'd add an AppleScript feature so I could grab currently playing track info? Gotta drop 'em a line.

But What About a Phone-less iPhone?

I'm as amazed and excited by Apple's iPhone as anyone. But what I want is just an iPod with Multi-Touch and the landscape/portrait detector. I don't need a phone and I don't need to access the internet or my email away from home. So, what do you figure...sometime this Summer? Oh, and since I'm wishing, how about a way to load and use AppleScripts on the darn thing?
