Listening to UB40 while coding... what could be better than that? (Okay, maybe listening to Threshold :) Actually it is interesting that the type of music I select corresponds to my type of work; if I'm *learning* I like softer dancy reggae-y blues-y stuff, and if I'm *creating* I like harder rock-y metal-y stuff. Right now I'm exploring AJAX, when I'm ready to build something, I'll switch to Dokken :)
This I love; Telebaby. Webcams in the newborn nursery, what could be better than that... from UMC Utrecht, a highly innovative hospital system in the Netherlands who happen to be an Aperio customer :)
Sounds right: Why the next iPad won't have a rear facing camera. "Apple is ahead of the curve, it doesn’t follow... a rear-facing camera in such a device is not useful and adding it only because others have it is not Apple’s style... if the iPad 2 will have two cameras, how will Apple surprise us? ...both cameras will be front facing and will allow for 3D video chat. That would be Apple." Yes, please!
Wow, how cool is this? Toshiba's new glasses-free 3D display tilts images and viewing angles your way. Excellent, more faster please.
Adam Curry: The App Economy is Bogus. "I have witnessed every income class, without exception, balk at paying for an app. There is something mystical about a millionaire who just finished a $180 bottle of wine complaining that an app is $1.99 or that there isn’t a free trial with just enough features instead. In my experience, the audience has become expert at finding free apps that more often than not have more functionality and flexibility that their for-pay counterparts." This feels true, doesn't it?
The dirty truth about web passwords. Exactly right. My email address was in the Gawker list, but I used my lowest-grade password, so I don't think I'm too exposed. fXf!
Slashdot: Why hackers can't take down amazon.com. Excellent. I like that PayPal was able to withstand the onslaught, too...
Oh no! Twitter's U.S Growth is Stalling. More dilithium crystals!
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg is Time's 2010 Person of the Year. Interesting choice... seems like the story of the year was the conservative resurgence, but nobody personified that. Seemed only fitting to post this on my wall!
