Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Steve Jobs announced the iPhone 4 yesterday in his WWDC keynote, and it’s a gorgeous device with software upgrades that include multitasking, a video chat app called FaceTime, and more. I’m still a happy Android user, but I have to hand it to Apple. They continue to school the industry on aesthetics and marketing. Case in point: the FaceTime demo video. First, some background. I got a Sprint EVO at Google I/O which...

This Week in Google Episode 45

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); In this week’s episode of TWiG, Leo, Jeff, and I talked about Google’s “ban” of Windows PCs for employees, Android tablets, the Sprint EVO (which I love), blogger journalism, and some of Steve Jobs’ remarks at D8. My tip of the week was the new “Save to Google Docs” link in Google’s PDF viewer. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Continua a leggere...

Hilary Mason: How to Replace Yourself with a Very Small Shell Script

Hilary Mason: How to Replace Yourself with a Very Small Shell Script

Just stumbled upon a YouTube clip of one of the best Ignite presentations I’ve seen, by Hilary Mason, a computer scientist at Bit.ly. Mason wrote a series of scripts that auto-respond to email with particular content, and auto-nag folks she’s emailed but hasn’t gotten a response from yet. Hit the play button to hear more. She says once the code’s fit for sharing she’ll put it up on GitHub. Cannot wait. Continua a leggere – Original Link: Hilary Mason:...

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 Screenshots: My Favorite Features in Froyo

Android 2.2 (code-named “Froyo,” the next alphabetical installment of dessert-named releases after Cupcake, Donut, and Eclair) is now rolling out to Nexus One handsets. If you’re tired of tapping and re-tapping the System Update menu item and getting nothing, you can update your N1 to 2.2 manually. Lifehacker runs down how. This method worked perfectly on my T-Mobile Nexus One, but I hear reports it does not work for the AT&T Nexus One. The manual update method does...

Google kicks off its annual two-day developerfest Google I/O today in San Francisco, and no doubt there are goodies in store during the opening keynote this morning from 9 until 10:30am Pacific Time.

Upload Videos To Multiple Video Hosting Services

Upload Videos To Multiple Video Hosting Services

Many video content creators want to make sure that they videos reach the largest audience possible. To achieve this they upload their videos to multiple video hosting services such as Youtube, Dailymotion, Facebook or MSN Video. Doing that manually can take quite some time. It would involve accessing the service’s website, logging in, selecting the video, entering information like the title, description and tags and waiting for the upload to finish. That’s a lot of work considering...

Bulk Youtube Video Downloader For Firefox

Bulk Youtube Video Downloader For Firefox

Most add-ons for Firefox that allow a user to download videos from the popular video hosting website offer to download one video at a time. This is most of the time the active video on the page. Some video downloaders even have the requirement to play the video for at least a second to recognize it before they offer the video download. Bulk Youtube Downloader offers a different approach. The Firefox add-on can be used to snap all links that lead to Youtube videos from a specific page on...

TWiG: The iPad Episode

TWiG: The iPad Episode

This week’s episode of This Week in Google included my friend Matt Haughey. Because we recorded on iPad launch day, the conversation inevitably centered around the new device, which I didn’t buy. A live viewer told me I looked a little bored at times–and I’ll admit, since I didn’t have one of the toys to play with myself, I kind of was. Still, it was a fun discussion full of iPad love, even though Jeff Jarvis had a little morning-after regret. Continua a...

TWiG Live from SXSW

TWiG Live from SXSW

Had a blast recording the latest episode of This Week in Google in person with Jeff Jarvis and Leo Laporte in Austin at SXSW this past Saturday. We had a live audience in-studio of friends and supporters there too, with guest appearances by Matt Haughey, Adam Pash, and Jake Jarvis rotating in on the fourth mic. It was so cool to see what happens beyond my Skype headset every Saturday and finally get to give Leo a big hug in person. Speaking of Leo at SXSW, if you haven’t seen him...

This Week in Google Video Podcast Now in iTunes

I’ve been a slacker posting up the YouTube videos of each week’s This Week in Google episode, so I’m getting back to it.

The TWiT folks also tell me that TWiG video is now available in the iTunes Store as well; here are the feed links for TWiG video both large and small. Continua a leggere – Original...

Switch Android Home Screens via Thumbnails

Switch Android Home Screens via Thumbnails

Yet another new-to-me Android 2.1 feature: tap and hold the dots on the bottom right and/or left of your home screen to see thumbnail previews of ALL the phone’s screens. Tap on a thumbnail to switch to that screen, no swipe necessary. As you can see in the screenshot, the thumbnail previews don’t include wallpaper–the background is just white, for better visibility–but they do show the icon and widget layout so you can identify which screen’s which. This...

Frequently Asked Questions About Google Wave

Frequently Asked Questions About Google Wave

The Google Wave Preview has been available to one million+ people for over three months now, but questions about Wave still abound, even by the early adopters who have gotten in and taken it for a test drive. After publishing a book on everything I know about Wave, I still get many of the same questions I heard back when I started. Even folks usually bullish about new technology still don’t understand what they can use Wave for, how to sell it to their friends and co-workers so...

How To Join FLV Videos

How To Join FLV Videos

Many of the video hosting websites like Youtube have limitations when it comes to the size or playtime of a video that can be hosted on their websites. That’s why a lot of video uploaders split larger videos into multiple parts that have to be viewed after each other. One of the niches where this dominates the videos are video game walkthroughs that usually have a long playtime. But joining videos can also be interesting even if the videos are not directly related. It might be helpful...

The Decade You Fell in Love with Your DVR

The Decade You Fell in Love with Your DVR

Over on PVRblog today, I got to briefly explain how TiVo changed television for me, alongside some of my favorite web folks. Caterina has my favorite quote: “It’s not hard to find someone to sleep with, it’s hard to find someone you’d WANT to sleep with. It’s not hard to find something to watch, it’s hard to find something GOOD to watch.” Yup, the 2000s were the decade of DVR. Continua a leggere – Original Link: The Decade You Fell in Love...
