Want windows? Use windows
Chris Clark: Camino jumped on the “Hey Guys! We could totally make it look like Exposé” bandwagon. … you know what’d be even more useful? Tabs that work with real Exposé. Peter Bright: All applications get thumbnails, but applications with explicit support for 7 will be able to add thumbnails on a finer-grained basis. IE8, for instance, has a thumbnail per tab (rather than per...
AppJet and Web 2.0
It’s too late for me to properly reply to Tim O’Reilly’s post about cloud computing, but there is one thing I’ve learnt during this week’s AppJet jaunt (as described over on Vox), and it relates to a point right at the bottom of his post: the cloud platform, like the software platform before it, has new rules for competitive advantage. And chief among those advantages...
Fix Yr Tumblr Template Titles
I’m a big fan of meaningful titles.

blech: ah, possibly. Yes, Moo avoid that.
blech: job queue!
blech: everything's a [EXPLETIVE DELETED] job queue!
muttley: and a pipeline!
blech: and a surprise!
jerakeen: moo have to send you email warning you to not delete the photos from your acount or make the private, though.
jerakeen: so they're not exactly flawless here
jerakeen: however, both are better than [REDACTED] fetching all the high-rez images off the server before returning from the SOAP call that created the basket
The Ear-hair of Usability
Ned Richards just posted a link to an article on the armpit of usability. It suggests that there’s a correlation between a decrease in usability and the level of speciality of an application: I don’t really disagree with this, but it did remind me of something else I noticed at my old job, when they changed from an in-house timesheet system to Maconomy (horrifying slogan:...
