Apple presents '2010 ≠ 1984'

Yesterday Steve Jobs shared his “Thoughts on Flash” with the whole internet audience. Some think it’s disaster and mutation of Apple into Big Brother. I, the one who’s personal site is 100% Flash and the who wrote a lot about Flash, disagree. The explanation of situation by Jobs is clear and perfect. He says that iPad and iPhone are too “weak” to run Flash — batteries will drain out, processors should be as hot as the son and everything on the screen will be stuck anyway. The explanation why H.264 video is less resource intensive then Flash video is just masterpiece of easy to perceive information. H.264 is decoded by special chip and Flash video is decoded by soft that needs a lot of resources (different chips ;)

Working parts

Once the man I know and who’s job is something about moving numbers from on Excel row to another asked me, “How aren’t you bored with what you do for living (whatever you do)?” As long as whatever I do including writing is of this post can hardly compete with fascinating words of numbers and Excel I started explaining how I still haven’t shoot myself because of all this dull design and ad things I do. I stated that as for me, the secret of successful and interesting job, whatever you do, is in enjoying it. Working under whiplash is nonsense, you have to change either your attitude or your work. Laundering seals, joking on Higgs boson or making sites must be made with ease. That’s when the work will thank you with great ideas and good emotions.

Take a pic to contact

I made a pretty business card for photographer with QR code on one side. It sounds like a good joke that you have to take pic of his card if you want him to contact you to take yours. I just feel like I don’t want to right anything more, so I illustrated how it works if you have card, cell phone and app that recognizes QR codes on that phone:

Just because I try to be honest every time it is possible (two or three times a year ;)) I want to confess that QR code on illustration doesn't represent contact information while it just contents known mem

I use QR app on my iPhone to recognize QR codes. It helped me a bit on Sziget ;) You can practice in recognizing codes using any QR codes in this post. Here is one more with my contacts:

Safari IV for Mac OS 10

Этот текст уже был написан вчера, так что я решил запостить его побыстрее. Я надеюсь, что в конце концов отыщу в себе силы перевести его на русский ;)

So Safari 4 beta is finally out. People in Cupertino made a good work implementing different stuff and adding new features to the browser. Not so long ago I described why I dislike new interface of Firefox 3. Time has come for Safari 4. The most magnificent remake was about the core of the browser — it loads pages faster and finally stopped bugging waiting while Gmail executes it’s scripts. You all know that dialogs about “Oh! God! Script is too buggy and your Mac will become unstable as long as nuclear war starts. Do you like to start the war?”. But I am not going to speak about core, new CSS and JS things. I was told that so-called SquirellFish technology is used to make Safari work faster. Sounds like mad scientist’s experiment on genetics to make a wicked mermaid. I doubt this mmm animal(?) tastes good, but it gave a great boost to Safari. It kinda swims in the ocean of internet biting the xHTML-code. The post is about GUI. You can check all 150 features (some of them are almost equal ;) but here’s what’s new as to me and GUI:

(Russian) Мне нравятся переезды, переезды (I like to move it, move it)

(Russian) Flash на iPhone? No-no-no!

(Russian) These are Signs

(Russian) Сайт созданный для айфона

(Russian) Рассказ о сайтах в G-Club

(Russian) The world is still unperfect and we have plenty of fuckups to fix

(Russian) А, сайт. a10

(Russian) Адресная строка — не приговор.
