Panic’s releasing something new.
These folks tend to have a carte blanche to my wallet, somehow. Wednesday.
PHPBuilder: Building a PHP RSS Aggregator
Infrequently Noted: Why What You’re Reading About Blink Is Probably Wrong
Posted to add a different flavor to the Blink conversation.
Emily Chang – Designer: Touch Gesture Reference Guide.
Cool. I thought I’d used all of these, but found a couple I hadn’t.
Macworld: Adobe granting sneak peek at pro video apps to broadcasters conference.
Adobe’s not going to give Apple any leeway to win back editors, if they can help it. I hear rumors of a Cinema 4D “lite” product to be bundled with AE. Will that be part of Creative Cloud? Please?
Anyone using Hammer for Mac?
Sounds like BBEdit’s placeholder and include functions, slickly packaged as an app.
Coders, neat widget alert.
If you use Sublime Text 2 and Git, you may love this.
Peachpit: Troubleshooting iCloud, Part 1.
Tom Negrino’s got a good article up about iCloud (two parts).
The Luminous Landscape: HDR Into Light.
Subtlety is key. A photographer should look at it and not be sure HDR was used. That’s my gold standard, something I aspire to.
Ars Technica: Evernote — So useful, even malware loves it.
Windows-only. Be warned.
AdobeTV: The History (and Future) of Rotoscoping in After Effects.
AppleInsider: Apple prepping Final Cut Pro X campaign to win back video editors.
It’ll take a great deal to woo editors back. Take away our tools for no good reason, we don’t forget. PR, perks and discounts won’t do it. Talking to editors, listening to our input, proofs of support … that will. But it ain’t-a-gonna be fast. There’s one thing — just one miraculous, unexpected thing — that could jump-start the whole deal: significant, useful Mac Pro update, Apple?
Four (4) handy CSS tools in one place. I tend to either memorize the code, or save an editable snippet for my favorite effects.
Queness: Why Use Twitter Bootstrap? Because I Said So.
Oh, I’ve used TB more than a few times. I’m experimenting with Foundation 4 at the moment on a new site, and really like how I can spec the smartphone-sized layouts easily when using RWD. Not as many bells and whistles as TB … however, many of those are overused and way too familiar.

Went through my feeds last night, for about an hour. Ashamed to say I had defunct feeds that stopped posting as far back as ‘07. Nice and clean, all shiny now. Any new feed readers should generate a monthly report on which feeds have been inactive. Perhaps flag them in the list with color-coding, yellow for 3 months inactive, red for six months inactive, etc.
Evernote’s Mac App is just horrifically slow.
Or so it seems here. Anyone else find this? Ties up system resources while it does its synching/closing/opening. A real woofer.
radesign: Design lessons from Gmail web app.
Seeing the title, I was ready to make a joke. Instead, it makes some good points (typographical points).
Rocky Sand Studio: Leaf.
For Mac RSS users. Looks a little too simplified for my uses, but YMMV.
James Shakespeare: The dire state of Wordpress.
Yep. I worry more about their security issues, personally. Free and commercial plugins and themes are the most common breaches that I’ve run across. Nasty when it happens, and it happens way too often.
ProPublica: How the Maker of TurboTax Fought Free, Simple Tax Filing.
“Intuit has spent about $11.5 million on federal lobbying in the past five years — more than Apple or Amazon. Although the lobbying spans a range of issues, Intuit’s disclosures pointedly note that the company ‘opposes IRS government tax preparation.’”
NY Daily News: Proposal to study how violent video games affect youngsters has stalled.
You know, there is an elephant in the room here, one that is uncontested. Children learn by imitation. A well-crafted study would go far in analyzing what children actually appropriate from video games.
vowe dot net: GMail and ActiveSync - it’s complicated.
“Let them eat IMAP.”
