Cool! Arduino's awesome. I've neve used (nor had much interest in) foursquare, but if I saw one of these out and about, I might have to give it a try. Mostly I'm creeped out by how much of a tracking device my phone already is and haven't felt the need to keep another service abreast of my movement, but combining an API with hardware that adds to a networking community is pretty awesome.

Enjoyed this post on DF about the Amazon announcement today especially Gruber's commentary on the difference between the Kindle and an iPad:
"I read books on my iPad, too, but reading on the iPad doesn’t have the same mental-mode-switching effect. When I read with the iPad I feel like I’m doing the same basic thing I do as I read on my Mac all day long — just with a different device. It’s more pleasant, in many ways, and definitely more personal. But I’m still in the same mental mode — fully aware that anything and everything is just a few taps and few seconds away.

E-ink feels peaceful to me. The Kindle doesn’t feel like a computer. It feels — not to the touch but to the eyes and mind — like a crudely-typeset and slightly smudgily-printed paper book. That’s a good thing."
Amazon's New Kindles. Wednesday, 28 September 2011. Kindle Fire. The Kindle Fire's slogan says it all: “All the content. Ultra-fast web browsing.” That's the best sort of marketing message...
