insanely great

Steve Jobs dies, it's taken a few days for what this means to me to sink in. I guess I'm more empathetic to say Steve Wozniak or maybe Bill Gates than Steve jobs, as they are more technical, I can still admire Steve Jobs communication skills and vision. Years ago in the late 80s I was a Mac developer (not working for Apple directly) up until 1993/4 when I bought my self a PC and learned VB. You had to be in that scene in order to realise how bad Apple had become over the 10 years of Steve...

iPad 2 cover – Japanese bath

I must admit having a Japanese girl friend and going to Japan many times I did have a laugh at the new iPad's cover and it's amazing similarity to a domestic Japanese bath. So much so I wanted to blog this so that people that didn't realize it could join in. I googled Japanese bath and got numerous images of the iPad. It looks like I joined the iPad/Japanese bath debate too late :-( Anyway all is not lost I found a great site: http://nihongoup.com/blog/totally-looks-like/ Which...

iPhone… the waiting!

Ok, so I finally did it. I've commited to building some iPhone apps. The mac has been ordered, a mac mini with 4gb memory and 360hd. The developer community has been joined and now we wait.

But beyond that I do not know, hoping for some inspiration. Any suggestions or ideas for new iPhone apps to...

Are you having a Windows 7 party?

Ok, I've got Windows 7 now, do I need to organise a launch party? Well why not? any excuse for a party is good especially in these grim times... But aren't these people a little too geeky even for my tastes? So far I think Windows 7 is cool, appart from some problems with Firefox it's been a dream to install and the new features are mostly benificial. But I don't want to get carried away. A lot of the new features should have been addressed a long time ago and this won't halt the...

Google mail and your own domains

Google mail is a great way to run multiple domain addresses as it can reply from the address it was sent too, try that in Outlook! One annoying problem for me is sometimes it "has difficulty" sending the email from your domain, maybe a timeout on the server or some other network issue. When this occurs Google will "kindly" forward your email using your gmail account instead. Now this sounds reasonable but it's annoying if you have your own business and you are effectively replying to...
