So far, iOS4 is more slow and buggy than cool. I expect iOS4.0.1 won’t be too far behind. Major issues: Push, IMAP, crashing, battery life.

Back from a 7-day camping trip. I love my backpacking mattress, but after 7-days my back needed my own bed. The real shower was nice too!

@bamana @weberwithoneb have the option of somehow seeing the resolution before I go there (maybe an intermediary page of some sort).

@bamana @weberwithoneb It would be nice if I had a choice of a long URL or short URL (more meaningful or not). On a short URL I could also

@weberwithoneb Look at a Google Maps directions link for example. Also many blog URLs are miles long. No need.

via TweetDeck in reply to weberwithoneb

@weberwithoneb Better, but some URLs are just too damn long. If they would separate the URL and intelligently shorten it, I would smile.

via TweetDeck in reply to weberwithoneb

@weberwithoneb bit.ly isn’t perfect but it is WAY better than long URLs. I only get 140 characters. No need for waste.
