jtallent: #toc page numbers should not be used? I disagree with Scott Meyers on that. He totally skipped over the issue of indices.

jtallent: the iPhone is not an eBook reader! I get why people like it, but how can you read on such a small screen? #toc

robotech_master: @jtallent Well, I just put my eyes on one word, and then let them slide across to the next one. It's easy, you should try it. #toc

pablod: @jtallent: "how can you read on such a small screen?" very well, thanks. #toc

jtallent: @jwikert makes a big deal about Amazon not offering an upgrade for early adopters. Apple didn't, neither did Sony #toc

bollyweed: @jtallent ...and we'll see if T-Mobile offers any kind of upgrade for G1 users... #toc

jtallent: @mikecane - ok, i stand corrected. What about Apple? #toc

jtallent: @bollyweed I did not buy the G1 with the goal of getting a deal on an upgrade. Then again, I'm a gadget guy. #toc

bollyweed: @jtallent damn, I'm mixing up "upgrade" and keep relevant. It seems TMo is lagging behind expectations for the G1--I still love it, tho #toc
