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?)
Between the Lines, the ZDnet WordPress blog, is the single biggest blog referrer to wordpress.org. This is your friendly reminder that it’s the end of the month so check out all your stats. (And pay your bills!) Another tidbit: 55% of wordpress.org’s visitors use non-IE browsers. This is definitely a trend.
Carthik finds the Old Versions of WordPress. WordPress.org is full of hidden gardens like that, it’s interesting to see people come across them and link them. Now I just need to get the site moved over to my new CMS.
Weblog Tools Collection — Plageurism in blogging, now we just need “spellchecking in blogging.” Good article nonetheless. (Anyone who copies and pastes it into my comments doesn’t get a cookie.)
To Rajesh Kumar who has been sending me emails about WordPress: I have replied several times, but my replies always immediately bounce back with this error: 500 Internal Server Error: initialization failed.
Hero binary review: 1. Go see this movie.
I could not be happier, I finally got my MX900 bluetooth mouse working correctly on Mac OS X. To clarify, it always worked but I had 5 buttons that were just there for decoration, and I really missed the back and forward buttons. The magic application that made my day? Gamepad Companion. I tried a couple of others, including the awful Logitech software, and nothing even came close to working. For future reference here are the button assignments on the mouse as shown in the interface:
- Left button
- Right button
- Wheel button (press down on wheel)
- Side back arrow button
- Side front arrow button
- Switch window button (below wheel)
- Up scroll (above wheel)
- Down scroll (below wheel)
The only thing that would make it perfect is if I could make the wheel button a double-click.
