A shame, but I can’t say I’m particularly surprised. Firefox may have to join the H.264 bandwagon or get left behind. I like the idea of Vorbis, but if I’m authoring video I’m thinking it’s not worth my time right now.
A shame, but completely expected.
A helpful video by Know Your Meme. Feel like I’m just reblogging Waxy today.

An actual post by Steve Jobs on why the iPhone doesn’t support Flash, and why it’s not likely to in the future. Well-written, and covers pretty much every logical base.
Nothing funny about this, just utterly depressing hate from an elected official. If you are born in America you are American. Full stop. That’s how this thing works.
In-depth reporting from the Indianapolis Star about an 18-year-old with no official identity. Almost sounds like the premise for a Philip K Dick story. Since he doesn’t have a social security number he can’t get a driver’s license, part-time job, or qualify for financial aid programs for college.
Thanks, internet. Thinternet.
Panic’s release notes for Transmit 4. Contrast with Bare Bones’ release notes for BBEdit 9.5.
Excellent work from Web Designer Wall. I’ve been using a similar approach on a client site lately, but this one has a few tricks I hadn’t considered.
Panic releases the newest version of their FTP client, and it’s a doozy. The website is, as I’ve come to expect from Panic, completely awesome.
A massive amount of interesting data available in a variety of formats. Get to makin’ shit.
Using one of those 12X Blu-Ray laser pointers. IT pops balloons, burns paper, and apparently even makes the sound effect from TOS.
Netflix refuses copyright holder’s request to stream her film without DRM. Nina Paley (the filmmaker) owns the film outright. There are no rights issues whatsoever. I believe the issue here is related to this culture we have where we assume everyone is a criminal. It’s actually more work for Netflix to let people watch a […]
Silicon Valley police are investigating what appears to be a lost Apple iPhone prototype purchased by a gadget blog, a transaction that may have violated criminal laws, a law enforcement official told CNET on Friday. I believe the whole thing was a case of common theft and the sale of stolen goods. Looks like Apple […]
Wonderfully drawn and told. I’d buy a print of this in a heartbeat.
This is, as Andy Baio calls it, “a clever hack”, and that’s about it. It is worthy of note primarily because it is, as far as I know, the first time a non-Apple OS has been installed on the iPhone hardware. At least, the first time in public. The real power of the iPhone isn’t […]
A good introduction to the highlights of HTML5, using the code itself for examples. Best viewed in a browser that, you know, supports HTML5.
My name is Phil Nelson and I make beautiful things for a troubled world. I'm a designer / developer / writer / director / editor / narrator at Occipital.
Hey. What're you doing all the way down here? You get lost? Just looking around? Cool. I like you.
