I’ve been fortunate enough to test the TweetDeck User Streams Preview in a private beta over the last month, which enables TweetDeck to display a constant flow of Tweets, unencumbered by API rate limiting, in true real time. Last week User Streams entered public beta, and if you haven’t tried it, do it. Real-time Twitter […]

This event should be attractive to any and all tech gearheads in Beaufort County and surrounding areas, so if you’re of that persuasion, come on […]
A little over four years after its initial launch, it’s interesting to read Paul Thurrott’s initial impressions of the original iPhone. Some reservations, like the virtual keyboard, in the end weren’t a hindrance. AT&T most definitely is, though. Fun read.
Apparently I should be thankful that I should have to worry about supporting Internet Explorer 6, because unless this is a forgery (and I have reason to believe it isn’t), Internet Explorer 2 is alive and well. My question is: Who in their right mind is running a so-horribly-unpatched version of Windows NT on the […]
I’m doing periodic updates on Hurricane Earl over at the underutilized Charleston Weather blog. It looks less and less likely that Earl is going to be an issue for South Carolina (possibly a different story for the Outer Banks), but it will be cool to see how the P2 WordPress theme — which updates in […]
The other day, neighbors (and eventually my girlfriend) noticed that my brake lights were on, despite my headlights being off and the car powered down. At first I suspected an electrical short, but I also noticed a strange blue piece in my floorboard. After pulling the fuse to save my battery, I took to The […]
Invest 96, which may become Earl later this week. Courtesy NHC. The Cape Verde train is getting rolling. Hurricane Danielle is all the rage in the Atlantic (and rightly so), but Invest 96, which may become Tropical Storm Earl in the next couple days, is another one to watch, especially if it develops slowly and […]
Could OpenOffice.org be in trouble at the hands of Oracle? I’m willing to bet they probably won’t put as many resources behind it as Sun once did, but I also don’t count out the open source community in keeping up maintenance of a very widely-used package. In open source, where there’s a will, there’s at […]
I’m not quite sure how advantageous the new Gmail push notifications are for iPhone given just how lousy iPhone notifications are, not to mention that Google Sync via Exchange is a more complete experience. The only potential advantage to the push notification method is better battery life, though given the volume of e-mail I receive […]
Great news for the Lowcountry tech/creative community: BarCampCHS 2 is officially in the planning stages. There isn’t a firm date yet but I’m sure the Twitters will be ablaze with that news when it comes down. It’ll happen on November 13.
