Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-08-22

  • i7-930 tjmax is 98 degrees. Ouch. My cooler is keeping it at ~70 under load, which is plenty of headroom but still seems hot. #
  • Good Oracle vs Google analysis: http://redmonk.com/sogrady/2010/08/14/oracle-v-google #
  • I'm surprised nobody's released a tablet to compete with the iPad yet. #
  • @derekcunningham Thanks Derek – doesn't look like they support Java server stuff either (like JBoss). That's what I was looking for. in reply to derekcunningham #
  • Is an annotated Java object still a POJO? It's neither plain nor old. #
  • Companies that want customers to move to online billing need to have simple, reliable websites. Seems obvious, doesn't it? #
  • Bell's site is broken. I think my bill is wrong, and the email summary just includes the amount, no detail. Now what? #
  • I just got a nice "Dyson Wash Day" reminder email from Dyson Canada. Apparently it's time to clean the filter. #
  • Would it be illegal for NBC/Fox/ABC to short Hulu stock after the IPO, and then pull their content? #
  • Lost a 1.5tb hard drive. RAID makes this a :| instead of a :( #
  • EJB messaging seems a lot less intuitive than .NET messaging. So much XML. #
  • Building an MBean is a lot easier than I thought. #
  • I've had the iPhone 4 a couple weeks now, and even still every time I pick it up and look at the screen I'm amazed at the resolution. #
  • Lots of rumours of a Chrome OS tablet release in November. Seems way too late to target Christmas. #
  • Games for Windows Live is terrible. It's hard to believe it's from the same people as Xbox Live, which is awesome. #
  • Every time I use a unibody MacBook Pro I'm reminded how much I hate the buttonless trackpad. I can't buy one until they change that :( #
