If this actually exists, there’s a pretty good chance I have it.
Your Audio Comments Welcome
A big complaint from Tumblr readers in general and my (few) readers in particular, has been the lack of a built-in commenting system or any form of two-way communication. The good folks at Davidville say they are hard at work on an innovative solution. In the meantime, I have decided to experiment with audio comments via MyChingo (soon to became MobaTalk). If you will look on the right side of...

Apple To Build New Features Into iPhone, Apple TV... →
This is good news, but not unexpected. We need to be able to buy iTunes content via the Apple TV, buy content in HD, and stream photos to Apple TV rather than just sync photos with it. And, the iPhone possibilities are endless. I hope we get an RSS reader and would love to see free 3G support (though that’s doubtful).

Heroes Episode Review: .07%
Having not had the opportunity to see a new Heroes episode in weeks, Francisca and I eagerly sat down in front of our TiVo this evening. We were then greeted by … an error message. For some reason, our TiVo had lost all of its data about what programs are on what channels at what times. The TiVo had power and a working network connection, so I don’t know how this happened. The upshot...

It will be interesting to see what, if any, affect this has on Starbucks.
