For once I am slightly on the leading edge instead of following the trend. I heard about Twitter* on MacBreak Weekly's MacWorld podcast but I wasn't even remotely interested in it until I saw Iconfactory's Twitterrifc app this morning. Right now I have no friends so I don't know who is doing what (cue sad face), but hopefully some of my invites will sign up and soon we will all be 'twitting' (?).

* Twitter is a social networking web
service that lets you stay in touch with friends, family or even the
public at large thanks to short posts or “tweets” that describe what
you are doing at any given moment. The concept is simple, strangely
addictive and fun through and through. Tell friends, colleagues or
strangers what you are snacking on, your current interests, favorite
websites or just plain goofy nonsense!

iPhone battery

What is everyone so worked up about iPhone's battery being not changeable? Just think about this, how many iPod owners do you know who also have a sync/charge cable with them, either in the office or at the airport waiting lounge? At least one? Ok, then you can charge your phone almost everywhere. I mean, surely you will be able to borrow a charger/cable if you promise someone a few minutes of playing your iPhone?

MovableType vs. WordPress

There are many discussions on the web about which one is better, and why one is more popular with a certain group of users than the other. Here is what I think why WordPress is more popular among the causal blogger than MT.

Note #1: I think MovableType is, in general, a better blogging system (e.g. more scalable, more flexible architecture, etc.) but oftentimes technical merits do not count for much when causal users evaluate software.

Note #2: I am comfortable in unix shell so that's not where I burnt my time on.

Fact: I've spent around 4 hours trying and failed to install the infrastructure (CGI and Perl's DBI and DBI::mysql or DBI::sqlite) on OS X to get MovableType to run.

Fact: I only need to spend around 30 minutes to get WordPress to run.
