The guys at GBM are going all-out with pen input today. Check out their video demo of the Pogo Stylus for the iPhone. That's going on my wish list!
I never eat up Internet bandwidth at work with streaming music. For one thing, I need that bandwidth to work. But with my iPhone, I can stream music all day, and Pandora is perfect for that since it builds a playlist around a song or artist that I pick, setting the right tone for the work environment. It's fantastic!

I've lived my whole Tablet PC life without anyone sending me or mentioning sending me OneNote files by email. Today, I got the latter followed by the former from two different people in totally unrelated contexts. It's as if I didn't believe the mention and then got proof it could be done. Weird.

Pity poor Nokia. They've had a handheld Internet tablet in the market for years, yet the community is still looking forward to Intel's Mobile Internet Devices and has gotten stirred up by Mike Arrington's proposal for a "web tablet" that pretty much describes Nokia's.

For all the accusations that Obama doesn't know foreign policy, the man never seems to get it wrong. It's official: the Iraqi government hopes U.S. troops can withdraw from Iraq in 2010, well within Obama's 16-month proposal. It's almost as if the man is already calling the shots.

Good things come to those who wait, such as wifi hotspot service for iPhone customers. For my perspective, read what Kevin C. Tofel wrote about it. He's on the money as usual, and I'm glad to see he's calling it "free" in quotation marks. (Not free when you pay for service.)

The Pentagon is getting ready to shift forces to Afghanistan. I seem to recall Obama stating something to that effect a few days ago. Obama also previously stated he favored covert ops targeting al-Qaeda in Pakistan. The CIA successfully performed such an operation not long afterwards. That's weird, right?
I still marvel at those who deny global warming despite the evidence being gathered from nearly every scientific and industrial field, from anthropology to landscaping, and every corner of the Earth, including the coldest, driest continent, which is being struck by snow and rain in winter when it should be far too cold for either.

Found this entry on Pro Blog Design giving the pros and cons of sideblogging. Turns out I killed pro #3 by splicing my feeds. Coincidentally, they cited as an example the Twitter feed on the now-defunct blog of our long-lost ink blogging friend Silver. Small world.

I was about to send that last post as an email to myself, as I often do for things I want to investigate further after work. But then I realized it was share-worthy, so I sideblogged it instead. Think I'll make that my default response from now on.

Warner Crocker claims everyone is excited about the new HP Voodoo Envy 133 with instant-on functionality via SplashTop. I am inclined to agree, but I've been getting a similar experience by keeping my tablet in standby, so instant-on doesn't have the same allure it once did. Still very impressive stuff though.
