Hmmm... one less reason to hold on to my laptop.

Kickstarter is kicking CES's ass.

http://touchfire.com is more useful than 99.999% of the gadgets I have seen and it was funded by Kickstarter and isn't part of CES. This makes it possible to touch type on on iPad.

It ships at the end of February. $44.95. I just ordered one. Steven Isaac, CEO, is showing it to me.

Kickstarter is a new way guys like Steven can get funded. http://www.kickstarter.com/ Steven got $200,000 from individual backers.

Here is audio of Steven showing it to me: http://flipzu.com/RobertScoble/92089

In my tests in using it I'm twice as fast as just typing on the iPad's screen.

I love Google's hold music: "They said be patient, patiently waiting ain't for me, they said maybe someday, but I don't like playing wait and see."

Lost in translation? Seen on site: "...friend us on facebook and follow our twits."

Just re-read a usability column I originally read in 1997 - 14 years ago (http://www.useit.com/alertbox/9710a.html). I'm feeling old!
Users don't read Web pages, they scan. Highlighting and concise writing improved measured usability 47-58%. Marketese imposed a cognitive burden on users and was disliked.

Not sure why, but periods outside quotes are really starting to bug me.

And so my stream begins... probably more of a babbling brook in my case. Hello Google+ world.

So, you think you are alone in your 'babbling.' I have just been sent here to make sure that you do not 'babble' alone. And you know that I am an expert in these matters!

Folding Chair 3.0

The last folding chair I shared with you was pretty cool, but this one takes the cake!

Who doesn't love a free phone?
Matt Cutts originally shared:
 
Best Buy has a one-day deal today (Wednesday, August 3rd): a free Nexus S phone for AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile if you do a 2-year contract.

I use a Nexus S as my main phone, and it's a great device.
Nexus S is the newest Android phone from Google. With Gingerbread, fast just got faster.

Just did a Google search and there were only 2 organic site results. Everything else was AdWords, Youtube or Places. WTF?

Came across this offshore SEO: "If there is, then we are a web marketing company terrible and I encourage you to call another person." Looks like something was lost in translation. ;-)
