Why oh why did Apple have to re-skin iTunes? Is it not bad enough to have Aqua, Brushed Metal and that other skin GarageBand uses? Now I have four different looks to Apple applications. And this latest one is terrible.
A gloat and a moan. I can’t mount my iSight onto my iMac (without forking out another 25 quid).
So the Apple Store in London has finally opened. My bro had intended to get up super early and get himself a Lucky Bag. Even if he hadn’t slept through his 6am alarm, reports indicate he would still have been 12 hours too late joining the queue.
Well wouldn’t ya just know it. Two weeks after receiving my iBook, Apple ups the specs to a 1 Ghz processor and doubles the memory capability. In a weird way the past fortnight evokes memories of holidays in foreign climes.
As is no doubt being reported across the entire blogosphere and tech news feeds everywhere, Apple had a bit of a bumper Macworld 2005, introducing in particular a new desktop, a new iPod and a new software suite.
So after much anticipation, the iTunes Music Store finally launched here in the UK. But don’t get your hopes up for finding anything you actually want to buy.
Like many other Apple-loving tech companies yesterday, Clearleft were huddled around MacRumours following its coverage of Steve Jobs’s keynote. And Gruff Rhys.
Regular readers, and anyone who’ll listen, will remember the problems I had trying to get my iBook fixed through AppleCare. Once I had finally got my laptop back I wrote (a real letter on paper) to Apple to complain, and got offered compensation.
On his tasty new blog, Brendan Dawes extolls the virtues of Apple’s Keynote as a rival PowerPoint. But I’m not convinced.
Some recent browser releases: Mozilla has released 1.3 Alpha and 1.02. Opera has released 7 for Windows Beta 2. Apple has released Safari Beta 2. For web developers, the last one is of particular note as Safari will presumably be making its way on to all new Apple machines. …
Last night, I enjoyed the SkillSwap presentation by Jeremy on ‘CSS based design’. There was a full house, with folks representing disciplines from techie to Flash, and I reckon everyone took away a lot from the talk. Interestingly, a good deal of time was spent…
First impressions of Tiger (and its in-built rip-offs). Also DigitalRefueler and Mark Pilgrim’s IBM blog.
How to have disentangled headphones without resorting to buying a new iPhone.
If you’re wondering why Clagnut has been so quiet in 2005, blame AppleCare.
WaSP have just released a minisite, designed by Ethan Marcotte. The purpose of Browse Happy is to spread the message to all and sundry that there are alternative browsers to Internet Explorer.
Widgets on my Mac OS X dashboard.
I didn’t think I’d care much, but there’s a few things I need to get off my chest.
A few opinions which seem to reflect my own entirely uninformed thoughts on the iPad.
Firefox 1.5 is now a fully fledged release and it’s well worth a look, especially if you’re a web developer.
For those of you following the saga, my iBook is finally fixed and it feels like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
So I’ve just downloaded iTunes for Windows and it’s lovely. Straight away, here’s three things it’s got over Windows Media player: Music sharing with your local network.
Quick browsing – play an individual album in your library with one click.
Those of you who have just updated OS X to 10.3.9 may have noticed that Safari is now a full point release older at 1.3. And this means that the clear:none bug I reported a year ago is finally fixed. In fairness Dave Hyatt fixed this bug ages ago but he’s had to wait…
On Messrs Hicks and Oxton’s new podcast, The Talk Show and Stephen Fry.
Pepys’ Diary is a weblog with daily entries from Samuel Pepys’s diary, starting from 1st January 1660. I don’t know how well known Samuel Pepys is outside of Britain (anyone care to enlighten?), but every schoolkid here learns about him in History. As a…
One of the main complaints aimed towards the iPhone is that camera is deemed to be a bit crap. So I thought I’d do a quick comparison with my old phone to see how it stands up.
PPK has a new browser resource called Bug Report. Design Engaged looked to be hugely successful and fascinating (link to a terrific animation). Veen talks about the difficulty of ditching the PowerPoint mentality.
The availability of fonts for use in Web typography, or more specifically the lack thereof, has been getting some welcome attention recently.
Variable fonts are a new font format offering unprecedented flexibility. They will be landing in web browsers and native operating systems within 12 months. Learn how to try them out now.
I’m no lover of Helvetica but neither do I hate it. That said I really do have an aversion to Helvetica Neue Light, or rather an aversion to when Helvetica Neue Light is used without due thought and attention, and particularly within user interfaces.
Christmas bargains are upon us, with indie Mac application bundles galore. Also, 24 ways is back for a third year and dConstruct t-shirts are now just a fiver!
My new iBook arrived just in time for the Easter break. This is not only the first time I’ve owned a Mac but also the first time I’ve used one for more than about a minute.
Recently I’ve been playing around with the webcam & audio conversation features in Microsoft’s latest instant messenger client. I have to say I was impressed, particularly with the audio. And for a short time only, there is a webcam feed on this site.
As yet, I haven’t bought anything from the iTunes Music Store. The reasons for my ambivalence to iTMS are threefold: value, tangibility and information. Let me explain…
Just recently Jeffrey Zeldman was bemoaning the sub-standard state of text rendering in Firefox on a Mac. And the sad truth is he only skimmed the surface; Firefox, Safari, Opera and Camino may render even the same font differently.
Epizootic is to animals as epidemic is to people. And a brief exploration of putting Unicode characters into Web pages.
Here’s the track listing to my annual compilation, this year cleverly titled as ‘The Best Songs I Bought In 2006 Ever’. It was another good year.
As you’ve probably heard by now, we at Clearleft are organising another d.Construct conference, set for Friday 8th September this year. We’ve just released the schedule and published a podcast.
A call out to font foundries to stop fretting about web font embedding and instead make it work in their favour.
The inaugural Dots conference provided a very enjoyable day on the loose subject of innovation. I was in a mood to listen rather than take notes but I did jot down a few bits and bobs. Here they are made into some sentences.
There used to be a page on Wikipedia listing pangrams in various languages. This was deleted yesterday. Pangrams can be occasioanlly useful for designers, so I’ve resurrected the page of here, pretty much as it was in Wikipedia.
