Last week I wrote about WebKit including WebGL as part of the development
code base. Today, FireFox code base also contains WebGL. WebGL is a
technology that allows you to build 3D environments within the CANVAS
element. How cool is that? Having a working code base is the first step
towards the technology becoming part of the released code. For the record,
WebKit is the foundation for Apple's Safari (both desktop and mobile),
Google's Chrome and Android browsers and the Pam Pre WebOS. Here is a link to
Mozilla Blog that talks about their implementation of WebGL.
Are your colors cool? Do you wish they were cooler? Adobe believes there is
power in color. Their new web solution, Kuler, is a clear demonstration of
this. In this article, you will find out how to use Kuler to create, share
and rate color themes.
Kuler is a new Web-based app from the Adobe Labs. Type in the Web address
kuler.adobe.com and you will arrive at the Kuler site.
The focus of Kuler is to allow you to create new color themes. This sounds
easy enough. There are other solutions for creating color collections, such
as the color palette tools found in some graphics tools t... (more)
There is no secret that I love my iPhone. I really do - I written several
articles about how cool it is. So why am I thinking of getting rid of it. The
Bit-O history here. I was one of the first few idiots who purchased iPhone
1.0 the same week it came out. Yes, I shelled out $600. I thought it was a
good deal as I was writing about the phone and could (in my head, not so much
my wife's) justify the cost. I also had to purchase the $85/mth plan from
AT&T. So, now it is over two years later and I still have the same phone and
I am still paying $85/mth. And I want to ... (more)
Sunday night Apple dropped the price of the Apple TV by $100 for the 160Gb
model - this brings it down to $229. The smaller 40Gb model is now MIA - so
long, little white Apple TV.
The Apple TV area as a whole is an odd one for Apple. When you hear Tim Cook
and Phil Schiller talk about the Apple TV you get the feeling that Apple
wants to do more with this device, but are not sure how. My gut feeling is
that the Apple TV is exactly what Steve Jobs has declared it to be - an
experiment. It will likely be a couple more years before we find out what
Apple wants to do with the Apple T... (more)
This week AT&T will be launching it's latest service, MMS, for the iPhone.
The way it is being hyped in the media you would think that this was a really
exciting an innovative new feature. Wow, you can send a video via text! OMG,
ATT, my BFF.
Let's take a reality check here: other carriers have been offering MMS for
years in the US. MMS is not new. Apple was criticized in 2007 for not
included MMS, particularly when a camera has been included with the iPhone
since day one. The reason why MMS has not been available, it turns out, is
not Apple, but AT&T. But, September 25th if you... (more)
