Hey That’s Patrick Scoble!

Mary was watching the Today Show when I got up this morning. I was working on getting packed up for my ride into work and not paying too much attention, but I did notice when they started talking about the iPhone. Suddenly there was a clip of a familiar looking kid answering questions about his iPhone. Hey that’s Patrick Scoble isn’t it? Yep, a moment later they identified him with a title on the screen.

Now I’ve never met Patrick, but I know who he is because I’ve read a few of his blogs and heard about him tangentially via posts from his dad Robert and Dave Winer over the years. A year or two back he did a couple podcasts with his dad that I enjoyed as well. Needless to say he seems like a pretty cool tech savvy kid and I enjoyed seeing and recognizing him on national television this morning.

Mindvision and Wrist Cameras

The nifty MindControl application launcher from MindVision has definitely won me over. It’s basically a pop up command line for the Mac and besides launching apps it lets you run scripts. All for only $20. Don’t just take my word for it, Tucows gave it 5 cows!

Well, it’s not quite Dick Tracy, but it still sounds really cool. Casio is coming out with a black and white digital wristwatch camera. It will be able to store up to 100 images in the built in 1MB of RAM. Of course we can probably expect a color one a year after they release this one, so maybe I should hold out.

Manila Is Out

Robert Occhialini of fame has a new Manila website focusing on gadgets.

I can’t wait to start playing with Manila. Hopefully I can get it approved for work soon.
