Bullet Sunday 53

Posted on Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Dave!So this would be the start of Bullet Sunday: Year Two. And this week I'm posting the bullets from my iPhone! Still don't know how to do images for iPhone entries though. I'll have to look into that one of these days.

• Seattle... In addition to the Seahawks win today, I was pleasantly surprised to find that more people than expected are interested in an early dinner blogger-meet in Seattle next Sunday. I will send out an email with more details soon, and look forward to seeing everybody!

• Blogography... When I first thought of using "Blogography" as the name of my "new" blog back in March of 2002, a Google search returned no results for the word. So I bought the domain and, after a few false starts, the rest is history. Now a Google search shows that there are dozens (if not hundreds) of sites on the web named "Blogography." This doesn't bother me at all, because it only makes my internet identity stronger as more and more people become familiar with the term (it's like free advertising!). This is all fine and good until one of these other "Blogography" sites starts ranting about how my blog is stealing their traffic. This had me starting to feel all sympathetic... until I noticed that their blog was only three months old. Jeez, buddy. Come up with something unique, and maybe you wouldn't have this problem.

• Stalked... I'm having fun updating my Twitter and Flickr feeds throughout the day. It isn't nearly as time consuming as I had expected, because I am usually sending stuff at times where I have nothing better to do anyway... like sitting at a stoplight or talking on the phone or whatever. Anybody who wants to follow along with my daily insanity can do so on my DaveStalker™ Page. Later in the week I've got some traveling going on, so it should prove interesting to see how the updates go then.

• iPhone... Still totally in love with my iPhone after all these weeks. I use it constantly, and am amazed that I am still finding things I didn't know (Image Capture, which comes with MacOS X, will offload iPhone images!) and things I didn't think I could do (you can use iPhone functions, like notepad, while talking to somebody over speakerphone!). It's just ridiculously cool. And yet... I still have two things that bother me: the crappy camera (unless lighting is absolutely perfect, your images will look awful because there's no way to adjust exposure that I can find) and lack of GPS (how much sweeter would Google Maps be if it knew where you were?). Hopefully Apple will be addressing these points in future-models.

• Buttons... Tim informed me Friday that the replacement part for our button machine arrived, so anybody with buttons on back-order with the Artficial Duck Store should have them by the end of the week! At last!

Hmmm... Sunday Bullets are kind of boring without pictures.

    Yeah, the whole stalkerating thing is still addictive enough to do during the day. Thanx for turning me on to it!

    (as I rush to buy identity protection software)

    (also, the DAY I joined twitter… almost THE HOUR my spam on my blog went WAY up – no coincidence I’m sure)

  2. Avitable says:

    When iPhone 2.0 or 3.0 comes out, with those improvements, I shall surely have one.

  3. the patient says:

    I want voice activation. How cool would it be to be walking along with the headpones on, listening to music and being able to push a button and say “call dave”?

    I could live without the gps

  4. chillywilly says:

    Not to burst the iPhone coolness bubble, but the Treo and other smartphones have been able to use other apps while on speakerphone for some time.

    But, the iPhone is still major cool.

  5. When posting images (and accompanying text) to my blog from my iPhone I send it to the blog posting utility email address from Flickr, which I’ve configured to post to my blog… Easy! Try it.

    You say they’re boring? That’s okay… we love you anyway. :)

  7. Iron Fist says:

    You could spin off the the stalker page as its own cable channel. “DSN: Dave Stalker Network. All Dave, All the Time.”

  8. Bre says:

    Sigh. I really really want an iPhone.

    Now I’m off to mope.

  9. yellojkt says:

    Blogography is a very cool name and you own the url, so the heck with anybody else.

  10. brandon says:

    yeah, i have to say, since i have a phobia about talking with people on the phone, and i carry around a web enabled pda, the only real use i have for a phone is as a camera. and that is the one thing i really like about my camera. i mean, my phone.

    well that, and apparently it’s SEXY. but those men in the bathroom are probably just shills for Samsung.

    ahem

  11. Belinda says:

    With all the traveling that you do, could you not hit this area sometime? It’s quite pleasant, actually. Little Rock? Memphis? Heck, I’d even drive to New Orleans for you.

    Southerners love Dave, too.

  12. Hilly says:

    You worked to build your blog reputation and so should they! Thank GOD nobody else cares enough to wanna be a Snackiepoo cause I’d go all bitch on their asses if they complained to me.

    (are you buying that? good!)

  13. Iron Fist says:

    WTF is up with everyone’s gravatars? Is it just me and Wayne that have working ones?

  14. Webmiztris says:

    “Come up with something unique, and maybe you wouldn’t have this problem.”

    I totally know what you mean. When I picked Tiny Voices in My Head, I couldn’t find any blogs named anything even similar, and then after I blogged for years people starting picking names super close like ‘voices in my head’. gawd, how original (sarcasm)…lol
