Could You Live Without Flash? →
Of course, it also sucks that the Flash blocker being linked is for Safari MacOS only. People who develop Mac-only applications, still, are not helping the problem of closed standards and incompatible technologies. You can’t really have it both ways.
nudawn: …you get rid of flash by coming up with something better and getting everyone to adopt it, not buy bullying everyone into submission because you CAN cause you’re APPLE and everyone must do what you say. i fucking hated that shit with music and DRM and whatever the fuck apple’s version of music files is. if you purchased music from the store you could ONLY play it on an ipod....

thedeadline: Has anyone heard about a “British retail tycoon who marked his 55th” birthday “by sending his guests a travel wallet with instructions to meet at a London airport and clear their calendar for five days?” Nancy Gibbs mentioned it in Time magazine. She was not impressed. But I am. I’m going to start planning my 55th birthday party now. Nancy Gibbs don’t know shit. Seriously.
Apple Will Never Support Flash
generic1: doublejack: dielaughing: Listening to everyone talk about Flash on the iPad/iPhone/iPod has made one thing very clear to me. Nobody knows what they are talking about. Flash is horrible. It’s the most horrible thing to ever happen to computers and computing. It breaks the web. It destroys what the web was initially designed for. Easily accessible information. But that’s not why...

A Little Part of My Internet Persona Just Died
youngmanhattanite: The writing was on the wall when Ryan Brown remarked: “there is no indication of how many people are online right now. im concerned.” and now the hard truth hits our inbox: Haloscan is being shut down on: Feb 13, 2010 The Haloscan hardware and software is physically failing and we have no choice but to discontinue the service.

Of all the good news today, I’m just so happy to have an endorsement from The Most Important Writer of 2009. (and, maybe 2010 too) I like the idea of a epitaph that says “He was complimented by someone who was complimented by Bill Simmons.” That is much better than “Asshole and Swan Killer”.
Adobe Flash, Apple Products, and you
I can totally understand why everyone is pulling their hair out that something as engineered as the iPad doesn’t have the decency to have multitasking in its OS. I think a thin light touchscreen tablet running a full OS is probably worth whatever they’d charge for it (form factor counts), but I would hesitate to recommend to anyone a tablet device that basically functioned like a big...
High-Fiving Yourself Is Really Just Clapping →
ryanbrown: Look! Some young companies that do stuff on the internet have coined DUMBO New York’s “Digital District.” So take that, Madison Avenue, a bunch of kids (relatively speaking, Mike Lebowitz has some grey) just pulled the rug out. And good for them — Madison Avenue, though incredibly convenient, is boring and hollow and inaccessible due to arbitrary doormen. You want a cool job in this...
Mohney and I were shooting around ideas a couple of weeks ago, started from an offhand comment about a very good “Big Love” slideshow on Vulture. We were talking about upcoming TV shows, and I claimed that I didn’t watch Lost at all. I believe it was him who had this idea that someone should do a recap of the show just observed from pop culture references and not the show itself....

(via dailyhuff) Dude, that happened 2 hours ago.
Do you all have a real J.D. Salinger “moment” or are you all just going to vomit up some tortured memory of high school and call it a tribute?
Reclusive Hermit Dies
Must be a slow news day. Hey, that means we can finally get the rights to “The Catcher in the Rye” and make a movie out of it starring Shia LeBouf!

Brian, I ordered those vests and hard hats, they should be showing up tomorrow. And I just realized, that along with your “Officer Naughty - Special Boner Division” costume from last year, you’re but a feathered headdress and a 10 gallon Stetson hat away from being able to walk in to, and later come out of the closet as any one of the Village People.

Jake Vance, for example, catches every Red Sox game he can — mostly on his iPhone. “I watch every game I can’t get on TV,” he said. “I’ve also been known to watch baseball at home on my iPhone while my wife is watching something else on TV.” Last season, Mr. Vance, 27, who works long hours making cupcakes in the vegan bakery he owns with his wife in Rutherford, N.J., listened to the audio...

I think all of you who haven’t ever lived in NYC don’t understand how bad it is here. You could rent an entire farm for what a 1BR charges here.

Message Board Topic: UI Engineer email resumes: [REP]@[AGENCY].com Long Island, NY Forget the LI part. (Yes it’s a NYC message board) This is the same one that keeps trying to basically share a job posting as if it were a Tweet. So I guess they want people who just email a resume to any job listing that says “UI Engineer” with no other details? They REALLY want them? Or was this...

In Defense of Paul Shirley
This guy is getting raked over the coals today for having an insensitive opinion. It’s great that the Internet crowd, in the pursuit of all that is attention-captivating, has found another opportunity for mob justice. Who doesn’t love a good beatdown? But it’s so easy to misquote people, or purposely misinterpret their words, if it yields a “better narrative”. In...
ninety9: Srs question for web geeks: kind you find a credible defense of knockout type (white on dark background) for a content (text) heavy web site? Um, I think: it’s easier to read it uses less display power on many monitors Why we use black text on white backgrounds instead: people are used to ink on paper

But they really had to twist AT&T’s nipples to get that concession, I bet.
