Now that’s what I call usability.

Straight from the Apple’s mouth. It’s already in the Safari betas! This is great news. I’ve been using DuckDuckGo as my search provider for awhile now, and their new design is the bees knees. Unlike some other search engines they aren’t in the business of selling your personal data.
Kevin, You recently declared “consumers want rectangles.” and I’m glad you finally figured out that Round Rects Are Everywhere, only 31 years after Apple did. It’s good that your knockoff hardware designs are based on more recent stuff, like the iPhone. Maybe if you browse Folklore.org a little, you’ll find some more insights that you […]
The image-set() function, which was submitted to the css4-images public mailing list earlier this year.
Apple announces the next major version of Mac Oh Es Ten, code-named Mountain Lion. Among the features interesting to me: Messages, which I assume is the replacement for iChat, and integrates with iMessage on iOS. Flickr sharing inside the OS via the new “Share Sheets” feature. Notification Center, which is the Growl-killer we’ve all been […]
Comedian Louis C.K.: The next Steve Jobs will totally be a chick, because girls are No. 2–and No. 2 always wins in America. Apple was a No. 2 company for years, and Apple embodies a lot of what have been defined as feminine traits: an emphasis on intuitive design, intellect, a strong sense of creativity, […]
Marco Arment is, once again, on point. One of the largest problems with Android is the same problem Windows has had since its launch: The lack of attention to detail, nuance, and usability focus in the built-in applications and OS make developers feel like they can be lazy. Based on my experience with the Android […]
The resignation of Steve Jobs from his post as CEO of Apple, Inc. today was not surprising, but to me it was still shocking. The writing had been on the wall, but as John Gruber said: “I saw that headline and my nervous system took a jolt.” Yeah. There is no one person whose hands […]
A tumblr dedicated to showing thanks to Steve Jobs for his work as Apple CEO. Now accepting submissions.
Serenity Caldwell for Macworld: The cat’s out of the bag: During Apple’s third-quarter financial earnings call Tuesday, chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer announced that Lion would debut Wednesday on the Mac App Store. The OS update will cost $30. Really looking forward to this. See what is coming on Apple’s Lion info page.
Steven Frank compares the granddaddy of them all to the new kid. Aside from the fact that the original iPod is about 2.5 times thicker than the iPhone 4, what stands out to me is that the faces are exactly the same size. Very Apple.
Reggie Fils-Aime: “I would separate out the true independent developer vs. the hobbyist,” says Fils Aime. “We are absolutely reaching out to the independent developer.” “Where we’ve drawn the line is we are not looking to do business today with the garage developer. In our view, that’s not a business we want to pursue.” Small […]
Too many good points to quote, just do yourself a favor and read it.
Panic, purveyors of fine Macintosh softwares, provide a free fix to the nightmare that is Ajaxload.info’s OSX-type spinner.
Excellent piece by Elia Freedman: We have been distracted by ridiculous arguments and fabricated “wars” for too long. We have been distracted by thinking that Google is Microsoft and Apple is Apple in a doomed fight already fought 20 years ago. But that is not the fight we should be caring about at all. The […]
Jesper of Waffle Software on the new, published, App Store rules: […] I don’t think it’s unfair for Apple to have a list of the applications produced for its platform that it believes is decent and upstanding, and which it is proud to be associated with. I just don’t think that that list should be […]
iPod Touch Wrong on the capacity, it tops out at 64gb. Right about FaceTime cameras and everything else. This one was a gimme. If you look at the Apple Store you will see that, despite it’s absence from the Keynote, they still sell iPod Classics with 160gb hard drives. It’s just a matter of time, […]
I agree with almost everything Jesper of Waffle Software has said on his blog in the past. This is no different. Huge capacity iPod Touch (128gb?) with FaceTime-enabled cameras, iPhone 4 guts, and Retina. Goodbye iPod Classic. The Shuffle goes away, and in it’s place there is now an iPod Nano at the $99 price […]
For the price of an $8.99/month Netflix account, you can now carry the service in your pocket. If you’re in the US, that is.
Google: Makes money by selling ads. Has a smartphone OS that helps them sell ads on search results, apps, etc. Upset with Apple’s foray into advertising. Starting to feel the pinch of a possible iPhone for Verizon, their most visible Android partner. Verizon: Makes money by selling bits. Sells dozens of phones with dozens of […]
