99c iPhone 4 Case | The iPhone Guru

Since they only sell LIVESTRONG bracelets in packs of 10 any longer, you can use one of your leftovers (it took me 3) to make yourself an iPhone 4 case and vastly improve your reception. #

2010.05.15 Get YouTube Video Bookmarklet

YouTube updated their site, and made the previous bookmarklet not work any longer. Although I figured out how to make it work again, I'm glad to see somebody else actually blogged about it. #

2010.04.29 Steve Jobs - Thoughts on Flash

Undoubtedly you'll see another link to this one, but Steve Jobs publicly defends Apple's position on Flash. It's a well constructed piece, and finishes even better: "New open standards created in the mobile era, such as HTML5, will win on mobile devices (and PCs too). Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind." #

iCade - iPad Arcade Cabinet

Okay, now I'm convinced I need an iPad. #

2010.01.04 .htaccess tricks and tips

A useless link for the vast majority of people who might read this, but a page I found fairly helpful in a recent endeavor of mine. #

2009.12.16 Change blindness

Apparently 75% of us don't notice large fairly obvious changes in some cases. I'd like to think I'm part of the 25% (at least when it comes to working with people, like in the example). (btw, I love Gruber's description, and totally agree: “freaky”) #

2009.12.15 Sure Cuts A Lot - Cricut Software Hack

I've watched too many infomercials about the Cricut - a personal CNC machine for crafters. I think it'd be slick to own one, but I've never been able to convince myself that it'd be worth it, mainly because it seemed that you'd be stuck buying their cartridges as $50 a piece. Luckily, it appears this company has built a computer program that lets you use any typeface or other vector on your computer and print it while attaching your Cricut to a computer. It's still a $180 machine (for the smallest), and another $75 for this program. #

Etsy - 8Bit Memory - NES/SNES Hard Drives

USB hard drives in old school NES and SNES cartridges. I love the idea, and think the pricing is extremely reasonable as well. I admit - part of me cries inside as each cartridge is no longer playable. Sign me up for a 640GB Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past cartridge please! #

2009.12.05 Wanna Hld Yr Handheld - 8-bit Beatles

This one won't be for everyone, but I think it's fun. Chiptuned Beatles music. What's that? Think of old-school sounding video game music... then make the music they're playing The Beatles, then add some kind of (potentially digital) voice track. #

Piece of Peace 2008

I'm late to this one, but what an amazing set of world landmarks built in painstaking detail with Lego's. My personal favorite of the bunch, and one I wish was available with instructions is St. Basil's Cathedral. #
