The new Mozilla.org design looks great. If you reload they show different web pages in the screenshot. I wonder how you can get on that screenshot list? 🙂
“We are “embittered generals”, and we are a threat for the W3C and the people working for the W3C. We are trashing years of W3C evangelism for our own glory. We are also accused of playing, unconsciously, for Microsoft.” Interesting read for anyone concerned about where the web is going next. I’ve been called many things before, but never “dangerous.”
On Michael’s recommendation and a few other favorable reports I looped by the Apple store today and picked up an iCurve and Apple bluetooth wireless keyboard. So far I’m loving the iCurve and getting used to the keyboard. I’m doing an unusual amount of typing these days so I should be able to give the keyboard a good test. Contrary to popular reports, the keyboard does have more than one button.
Mark Cuban on HDTV, DVD, Hard Drives and the future. Great read, I didn’t know that the HD content they film is higher quality than what they broadcast. I’ve gotten the full HD experience once at a friend’s house who had one of those giant 6 foot TVs and it was amazing, we watched golf and the nature channel or something. The junk they show on the TVs at the stores does not do HD justice at all. Cuban also thinks HD is the answer to piracy, contrast to this interview with Jack Valentini on Engadget.
Brian Alvey and a Coke joke. I groaned but loved it.
Om Malik on Broadband: Phone companies scamming millions from consumers. I have T-Mobile and paid $24 this month on top of a service plan that’s $50. To their credit only two of the charges look very shady and I still think that’s a bargain considering I used over 2000 minutes. (Even though Om’s blog has a trackback link, I can’t see how to send him a trackback. Is it a secret?)
