Ma di Windows 8, ovviamente protagonista del Leap Day a Barcellona, dove è stata presentata la Consumer Preview di quello che sarà il nuovo sistema operativo di Microsoft.Continua a leggere Windows 8 Consumer Preview:...

Mozilla Firefox 5: download fra poche ore

Mozilla Firefox 5: download Sono passati pochi messi del rilascio della versione 4 di Mozilla Firefox uno dei browser più utilizzati dagli utenti.

No Facebook in Ping After All

No Facebook in Ping After All

Yesterday on TWiG, Leo and Jeff and I discussed Facebook integration in Ping–Leo didn’t know it was there, but looking at the screenshots on Apple’s site, before I got the iTunes 10 download, I said it was there. But even though the Ping web page reads “Find even more music fans…by connecting to your Facebook account” right now, Kara Swisher reports that Steve Jobs told her there’s no Facebook in Ping because they wanted “onerous terms that...

Earthquakes and Android Development

Earthquakes and Android Development

While last night’s southern California earthquake shook up the Padres game, I was standing in a doorway downloading an Android app. Twitter was down, the news didn’t have anything yet, but I remembered Reto Meier, a Googler who did an Android talk at I/O had demo’ed an earthquake detection app. It’s called Earthquake!, and it’s got some very useful features, especially when you’re worried about the earth cracking open and swallowing your home whole....

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...

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

Correcting Kindle E-Books on the Fly

A few months back I bought Brian Tracy’s Eat That Frog–a great book about beating procrastination that I cited in a recent Fast Company video–on my Kindle. Today I got an interesting email from Amazon. To quote: We’re writing about your recent Kindle purchase of Eat That Frog!: 21 Great Ways to Stop Procrastinating and Get More Done in Less Time by Brian Tracy. The version you received contained some errors that have been corrected. An updated version of Eat That...

“The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size”

“The Swype package you installed does not match the screen size”

If you tried out the excellent (and unofficial) Swype beta for your Nexus One–the keyboard replacement that makes touch-typing much easier–you may be getting an annoying popup about how the Swype package you installed doesn’t match the screen size. I love Swype so much I’ve been putting up with the error for weeks, constantly dismissing it. Turns out a better version for N1 users kills the error. I uninstalled my error-prone version and installed this one yesterday;...

Microsoft Outlook Social Connector

Microsoft Outlook Social Connector

With Google’s plans to include Buzz in Google Apps for enterprise customers, Microsoft needs a way to get social media into Outlook, and the Outlook Social Connector add-on seems to be it. When Office 2010 ships–in the first half of this year–it will have support for Facebook, MySpace, Windows Live, but–oddly–not Twitter. Here’s my review of the current version, which integrates LinkedIn contacts and news feeds with Outlook 2003 and 2007 now: Microsoft...

Big! Exciting! News: ThinkTank Is Now at Expert Labs

I am thrilled to announce I’ve landed a pinch-me dream job: I’m now a Project Director at Expert Labs, the new non-profit headed up by Anil Dash. I’ll be in charge of developing ThinkTank. Here’s what happened. Last March I was thinking about buying a netbook, and asked my Twitter followers a question: Do you have a netbook? What do you love or hate about it? When I got back 243 informed opinions by savvy netbook owners, I knew I needed a way to easily parse and...

Once you’re active in Google Wave, you want to know if something new is happening there–even if you don’t have Wave open in your web browser.

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Hackers Don’t Tinker Because They Got Invited

Mark Pilgrim’s excellent exposition on the “tinkerer’s sunset” (an idea Alex Payne put forth in his iPad piece I linked earlier) got me thinking about the nature of tinkerers, and whether the iPad really represents a sunset for them. The optimist in me thinks it couldn’t even if it tried. First, know that I fundamentally agree with Alex and Mark: the closed nature of the iPad turns me off, and I wouldn’t give one to my kid if I were encouraging her to...

Alex Payne on the iPad

Alex Payne on the iPad

“The iPad leaves me with the feeling that Apple’s interests and values going forward are deeply divergent from my own. The future of personal computing that the iPad shows us is both seductive and dystopian. It’s not a future I want to bring into my home.” al3x on the iPad. Read it.

iPad First Impressions

iPad First Impressions

Based solely on live blogs and a choppy audio feed: Terrible name, gorgeous device, great price point. I may be an Apple critic, but I’m not made of stone–this thing is beautiful. Instantly my Kindle seems like a joke. Kottke may be right: The Kindle app plus Instapaper installed on the iPad may very well be a much better reading and browsing experience than the Kindle itself, plus you get everything else it does. Here’s Apple’s official iPad page. And you? Continua...
