Sometimes I get a little extra-inspired when I'm tweeting about a live tech event. Witness my play-by-play call of today's Apple iPhone OS 3.0 preview. It's like tech reporting meets the most excellently awesome rhyming ever all at once. Follow me on twitter - the rhymes seem even more awesome when they're comin' at you live!
Here's the stream, chronologically from the beginning of the event to the end, with only minor edits made. Seriously, you'd never know I made this up on the fly, huh?
#iphone event here we go / what's on tap for three point oh?
apple's crowing about their stats / but hey by now we're used to that
#apple's stance so far seems to be / our evolved app store will crush the #palm #pre
push notifications & turn-by-turn / in sunnyvale #palm feels the burn? / not so fast, says maker of #Pre / no background tasks on #iphone 3.
@saschasegan: apple spun their rationale / or so says SS / they claim background apps / create a performance mess #iphone #apple #meatbus
apple's walled garden / continues to grow / to which platform / will the consumers flow? #apple #iphone
bonjour for games and other crazy stuff / without background apps, this is all just fluff #iphone #pre #iphone3.
now it's time for the expected demo / take the stage, young man from Meebo #apple #iphone.
meebo seth flies a plane / i last saw @finderic in barcelona, spain #meatbus
push notifications in iphone 3 / but please don't let those Sims send any to me #iphone #ea
espn 4 #iphone has always been sweet / will OS3 bring a new treat? / virtual dick vitale & stephen a scott? / on 2nd tht, I really hope not.
monitor glucose with your #iphone / now #apple can tell you, "Don't eat that scone!"
now i can buy junk for my virtual dog / but copy, paste, and mms aren't in the #iphone log.
Leaf Trombone / Are you for real? / Is this for real? / Seriously, for real? #iphone #meatbus
shake to undo / shake to redo / will i be able to shake / my leaf trombone, too? #iphone #meatbus
landscape keyboard! / hoorah, hooray! / is this enough to keep / jailbreakers away? #iphone
sorry that i clonked you in the dome / when i shook to undo / i threw my #iphone.
i'm so happy / @dimsum05 / about landscape QWERTY / i just broke out in a hive #Iphone
MMS for the win / #apple, like Prince / 1999 again!
voice memo support / calDAV, too! / mail and calendar search / can we get a camcorder, too? #iphone
i got universal search on my #iphone now / but some bloggers ain't happy / cuz it's "oh, Apple finally added that? wow."
so what's it gonna be / #iphone or #pre / or a #tegra powered #android / or one from #htc ?
put #iphone in your pants / and do a li'l dance / shake to shuffle / for instant bromance.
#iphone devs / get the beta today / i sure hope it shows up / (EVERYBODY, NOW): ON THE PIRATE BAY !!!!
