@siegel Indeed. Although I suspect we'll see FireWire 800–style adoption and prices, at least for a while. eSATA is simpler…

Aperture preinstalled is still $199.

@marcoarment Re footnote 1, you would need to raise prices ~43% so that you end up where you started after Apple takes its 30%.

via Echofon in reply to marcoarment

@pilky SpamSieve has an API, so any Twitter clients are welcome to show it tweet text and ask whether it looks spammy.

via Echofon in reply to pilky

Need to modify Tower.app/Contents/Resources/DiffTools/TextWrangler.sh to use /usr/bin/twdiff if you have the Mac App Store version.

via Echofon

@pilky This is the important question.

via Echofon in reply to pilky

@bsneed Wasn't talking about that split. Just saying that 30% cut is equivalent to 43% price raise. Or, in your example, 21.5% raise.

via Echofon in reply to bsneed

@bsneed BTW, to end up with the same amount after a 30% cut you'd have to raise prices 43%.

via Echofon in reply to bsneed

@bsneed I don't understand what you're getting at. You want to raise prices less than the 30% so that the Apple customers are subsidized?

via Echofon in reply to bsneed

@bsneed You're not allowed to just raise the price on those buying from the App Store.

via Echofon in reply to bsneed

@bsneed Raise the price for all your non-Apple customers? How is "not do it" an option if you have an existing app/service?

via Echofon in reply to bsneed

@bsneed To vote with your feet you would need to degrade the experience of your existing app. Then customers complain to you.

via Echofon in reply to bsneed

@lallysingh Even if nothing needs fixing, it's almost impossible to help her do something if I can't see the screen and point at stuff.

via Echofon in reply to lallysingh

@simX Thanks. Are they using it in addition to or in place of a computer?

via Echofon in reply to simX

Wondering whether an iPad would be good for my grandmother (easier to use, less to go wrong) or a problem (can't screenshare to fix it).

via Echofon

@radiofreelunch @FogBugz It doesn't work for me either (Safari 5, Mac). In bug view, either clicks the link or selects Spam/Edit/Assign….

via Echofon in reply to radiofreelunch

@FogBugz Would be nice if there were keyboard shortcuts to jump to particular fields (e.g. Tags, Bcc).

via Echofon in reply to FogBugz

@leebennett Can't sell mine; still have PowerPC customers to support.

via Echofon in reply to leebennett

This PowerBook G4 display looks dimmer every time I open it.

via Echofon

@Aetles Is there a keyboard shortcut to show a conversation? Looks like I have to double click and then click the right arrow.

via Nambu in reply to Aetles

@Aetles Hmm. Not sure why I thought that wasn't doing what I wanted, but it does seem to work now. Thanks.

via Nambu in reply to Aetles

@retrophisch My tweet was referring to Twitter, not Twitterrific.

via Echofon in reply to retrophisch

@runsamok Indeed, I can unfavorite in Kiwi by clicking the star. Menu command and keyboard shortcut don't work, though.

via Echofon in reply to runsamok

So the problem is that Echofon forgets which part of the window had focus when you hide/show. It always puts the cursor in the compose area.

via Echofon

OK, it looks like Echofon does remember the current position if you Tab rather than Up-Arrow out of the compose field.

via Echofon

@mhenders I was hoping I was missing something. That one little thing is driving me crazy.

via Echofon in reply to mhenders

@leehinde I tried YoruFukurou. Good features. Nothing wrong with it, exactly, and I might adjust with time, but it just felt very odd to me.

via Echofon in reply to leehinde

Really liking Echofon except that the triangle "current tweet" marker loses its position when I bring it to the front via the hotkey.

via Echofon

@Aetles "Hide Seen" is a neat idea. But no in-window search in Nambu, it seems.

via Nambu in reply to Aetles

@dnanian Cool. Glad to see Twitter has a search field, even if it's invisible.

via Echofon in reply to dnanian

Was using a slightly old version of Hibari. Current version does support real names. Thanks to @dannystewart and apologies to @violasong.

via Hibari

@mhenders @nriley Echofon is making a great first impression. Thanks for the recommendation.

via Echofon in reply to mhenders

@petermaurer Did not know about that one. Thanks.

via Kiwi in reply to petermaurer

@tingham Not sure if you're being facetious, but I actually like seeing them in the browser.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to tingham

@tingham Hibari opens twitpic links in the browser.

via Twitterrific for Mac in reply to tingham

Kiwi: Unread tracking. Top tabs and saved searches are nice but overflow. Real scroll bar. I like the Pure theme. Can't unfavorite.

via Kiwi

Hibari: Clean UI. Real scroll bar. In-window search. Saved searches in main timeline. Compose pane. No multi-accounts (yet). No real names.

via Hibari

Twitterrific: Great themes. Persistent searches, favorites, and trends in sidebar. Awkward multi- accounts. Not enough keyboard shortcuts.

via Twitterrific for Mac

Twitter: Great keyboard control. Good multi-account support. Over-the-top UI. Forces URL shortening and "smooth" scrolling. No real names.

via Twitter for Mac

@natevw Does it work with __import__()?

via Kiwi in reply to natevw

@luciuskwok YMMV, but I recently stopped doing that, and no one seemed to notice. Before, when I stopped for a while, I would get requests.

via Kiwi in reply to luciuskwok

@dnanian This is week 3 or 4 for me. Fingers crossed.

via Kiwi in reply to dnanian

Adding a trivial question to the vBulletin registration seems to have really cut down on the spam accounts, without manual moderation.

via Kiwi

Rejected for symbols in the PyObjC static libraries that my app never uses. And PyObjC is, of course, built into Mac OS X.

via Kiwi

The @FogBugz mobile site looks nice, but there's no way to collapse quoted text or reply to inquiries?

via Kiwi

@rentzsch Insurance until there's some OS change that breaks it…

via Kiwi in reply to rentzsch

@dnanian Wow, that's a huge change in policy.
