Patrick graduates to high school

Today I’ll be attending Patrick’s graduation from Jr. High. Damn, can’t believe he’s going to high school. When I graduated from Jr. High? The hot technology? A floppy disk drive for your Apple II. I remember my dad being so happy that he got a 64kb memory card, too. That’s kilobytes, not gigabytes.

I’m so proud of Patrick who is one hell of a great kid. Count your lucky stars. Two years before he starts driving. Scary!

Mike Arrington and Steve Gillmor don't use Firefox 3.0

Tonight I was at a party where Mike Arrington, Steve Gillmor, and me were talking to Brendan Eich, CTO of Mozilla Foundation. You know, the fine folks who make the Firefox browser. During the conversation they admitted they don’t yet use Firefox 3.0.

Me? That’s ALL I use and I love it. I can’t wait for it to launch. Brendan said they don’t know the exact time yet that they will launch but gave strong indications it would be sometime next week.

Interesting that Walt Mossberg DOES use Firefox 3.0 and gave it a ringing endorsement, one that I can definitely add onto. There’s no better browser out there. None. On my Mac I love it a lot more than Safari.

AT&T's CTO tells me all of Apple's secrets

Oh, I wish I could write that headline. I did interview AT&T’s CTO, John Donovan, on my Nokia cell phone today. We did talk about the 3G network that AT&T built. But he wouldn’t answer any questions about Apple. Of course that’s why he got to be CTO of one of the biggest phone companies in the world: he’s smart.

This was the first time he was interviewed on a cell phone, which I found somewhat interesting. He talked to me about the LTE network they are working on, which will be even faster than 3G.

Speaking of Qik, on TechCrunch they just announced that they are supporting Windows Mobile now too.
