    Great episode. Just ordered a Griffin. For 20 dollars how can you go wrong?

    I went to the Droidmaker site and the book is not downloadable for free. Only a small excerpt is downloadable for free.

    @Mike
    I’m going to get one too, they look great
    @John,
    It is on his personal blog here http://droidmaker.blogspot.com/2009/06/droidmaker-book-now-downloadable-free.html I’ve changed it in the notes above but you should still check out droidmaker.com for all the background deets and liks to other work.

    @Chris,
    Thanks much, I’m devouring the book right now and have a new bookmark in my favorites.

    The full screen button is not working for this episode. I went back two shows to see of it was a FF 3.5 issue and the full screen buttons worked. I thought would like to know about the problem. Nice show.

    @Kim – that is strange, I wonder if it’s a blip.tv issue as that’s where we host that Flash file?

    @Chat – thanks! Are you in Ch’town? We’re hosting a tweet-up at the bestofpei Market Monday night, 6-8pm, and on Friday in Halifax!

    @Amber – Chad and I used to play football together on PEI in high school but I think he’s stateside now. I loved seeing the Charlottetown backgrounds as well – I’m sure Will recognizes all the places, too :-) .

    Wonderful shows!

    Interesting following all the teckie stuff via Amber, Calli, etc. Ladies talk so fast and clear.

    This show had marvolous shots. Loved the out of focus backgrounds behind Amber. Good stuff.

    From my iTouch

    Cheers

    @Gramps – yes, Chris does a fabulous job shooting the show. Props to him!

    Great review on the AirCurve. i won a free one from a Griffin contest. It’s a very simple device, and does what it suppose to do. Ahh Science and Tech together once again.

    Couldn’t make the bestofpei, I miss the island. Still stateside, been in Vermont for about 8 years now working for GE Healthcare in their nerd division. Love to see you guys repping the Maritimes, keep up the great work!

    Amber I think we had a mutual acquaintance on PEI ad well, Jill Arbing…although I haven seen her in many, many years.

    The Aircurve arrived yesterday and it is awesome! Thanks for letting us know about this Jeff!

    Don’t catch as many epi’s as I like, but to encourage a) always great, gets me out there looking to improve flow and connectivity for productivity and life enjoyment and b) Of the epi’s I have seen this is by far the most visually interesting.

    Peace…

    Hello! How is it going today? It’s just that i like your blog so much, and that i think you can start earning a bunch of cash from it. I have a few winning sites that I started bringing in some cash from lately. They are using something called a content hider widget, that makes visitors fill out a quiz inorder to unlock special content or to download programs or tools that they want. And each time they do a quick survey i earn about two dollars. Really cool eh? Been making lots more from it than adsense. Feel free to contact me, or you can check it out through my refferal link. http://www.tinyurl.com/yevwfst, Best Regards, Henrik W. Hansen

    Thank God for the archives! I knew you talked about the AirCurve on CommandN a while ago but couldn’t remember what episode. :) Keep it up!

  25. Lara November 15, 2012 at 6:31 pm #

    Hey Mark Aguilar, you’re not going to believe this given that Jeff’s review is a few years old, but I have an AirCurve in my office and use it all the time – so convenient for when it’s not feasible to run cables around a big desk or pick up new batteries!
