One of my favorite extreme sports videos of all time. It's just crazy, especially starting about 1 min 20 sec into it.

Path uploads your entire iPhone address book to its servers without asking for permission. Unacceptable. http://t.co/Q4BESZU0

Much better JPEG compression

I am hanging out with +Dror Gill who is CTO of http://jpegmini.com

His team has done something quite remarkable. It makes JPEGs at about 1/5th the size of JPEG's compressed with other techniques. Go there and try it. Hey, +Thomas Hawk and +Trey Ratcliff you should check this out.

How does it do it?

It compresses each piece of the image using different quality levels with no degradation in image quality. I just tried it and it's quite remarkable. I'll get an interview up with Dror soon where we talk more about this company.

So I really want to use the new Path. Part of me genuinely wants it to replace Facebook. But the sensible part of me if telling me not to invest the time because between having an amazing product, incredible team and all the connections in the world…Path will get acquired and shut down at some point in the not so distant future and won't turn into an industry giant that stays around for the next decade+…although, part of believes it could.

On the other hand, if +Dave Morin came out and explicitly said he had no motivation to sell in the short-medium term (next 5 years) then I'd jump in head first.

Are you going in head first with Path? Treading carefully? Or staying well clear? And why?

Update: if you have no idea what this is about, check +Robert Scoble 's interview here: http://bit.ly/tV2SB6

A read only account would be nice. The information value of FB is about 0 but it's nice to have it as a contact book..

#iPad 3 doesn't support full LTE capabilities in Germany due to different frequency ranges (US/Europe). Apple isn't exactly point out this issue, may mislead consumers bit.ly/x98IMl (article in GER)

I've removed the Path app from my iPhone & requested the deletion of my account (since you can't delete your account by yourself). Here's how it works: http://service.path.com/customer/portal/articles/257565-how-do-i-close-my-path-account-
