My friend Buzz Anderson’s Twitter application Birdfeed was released this afternoon by Apple.
I’ve had the great fortune of being able to help test this the past few months, and even with all the other great iPhone Twitter clients out there, I keep going back to using his.
Best Twitter so far on Birdfeed?
@erikprice: Birdfeed is, without question, the Helen Hunt’s rain-soaked breasts of iPhone Twitter clients.
If you complain about the price of $4.99 – just think, it’s about the price of a good loaf of bread – and I guarantee you’ll be supported for a long time on that $4.99.
I mentioned a few posts ago that I’ve been busy. With what you ask?
• Being a father to a wonder 10 month old daughter.
• Exploring iPhone development
Yes, that can take up a ton of time.. well, all my free time.
A blog that takes my love of the end credits to a whole new level:
The Art of the Title Sequence
There’s been confirmation today that Steve Jobs did get a liver transplant, and he was pretty sick when he got it.
From the press release:
He received a liver transplant because he
was the patient with the highest MELD score (Model for End-Stage Liver Disease) of his blood type and, therefore, the sickest patient on the waiting list at the time a donor organ became available.
In interpreting the MELD Score in hospitalized patients, the 3 month mortality is:
40 or more - 100% mortality
30-39 - 83% mortality
20-29 - 76% mortality
10-19 - 27% mortality
<10 - 4% mortality
Take that for what you read into it - but I pray that Steve gets better, not so that he can go back to Apple and make the stock go up, but so he can live a long life with his wife and family. Those of you who have gone through losing a loved one will understand. Pray for him and his family please.
Which, for me isn’t a big deal at all – I had only signed up for it years ago to try the food.
But I wanted to say – wow, what a great conversation – the lady who called was genuinely happy about me coming, and excited for next week. And she’d happily turn off that flag for me in my account.
A pleasant change from faceless application rejections (of which I have not yet experienced).
