ReaderMini Update

I have a few changes planned for the next release, but I haven’t had any time to finish them up. March will be less busy, so expect the next release on, say, 3/15/07. Planned features for that release include:

  • A “next” button in the upper right hand corner of the screen that you can use to rapidly skim your unread items and mark them read.
  • The ‘subscribe to feed’ feature.

ThoughtFix Demos CarMan

ThoughtFix has a great video of CarMan, the new utility by the same team that brought us Canola! CarMan works on the Nokia N800 or 770 and interacts over bluetooth with the ElmScan OBD-II device. OBD-II is a port that is installed in most modern cars so that car owners and service stations can debug their vehicles. CarMan exposes the throttle pressure, speed, engine RPM, fault codes, etc in a slick analog interface.

Bay Area Pub Crawl on Sunday!

The WetYourWhistles team is arranging a Pub Crawl this Sunday, February 18. The party kicks off at 3pm at the BBC in Menlo Park. The crawl will also hit the Tied House in Mountain View and the Firehouse Brewery in Sunnyvale!

From the WetYourWhistles site:

Welcome to Wet Your Whistles, the on-line guide to watering holes along the San Francisco Bay Area Caltrain railway line. You can ride Caltrain from San Jose to San Francisco to have a good day out without designating a driver. Our quest is to create a comprehensive list of brewpubs, microbreweries, bars, and well-stocked restaurants along the Caltrain line.

ReaderMini Video

Jonathan Greene recently made a video of ReaderMini running on an N800. It’s cool to see how another user interacts with it!
