At first you might think it's a stripped down Zelda clone, but you quickly find there's fewer actions to perform, blockier graphics, simpler sounds and less story. Then it hits you right in the face and you realize that Passage is so much more than the 100*16 pixels you see on screen.
From the department for news I didn't think we'd receive this year, comes word from Redmond that not only is Internet Explorer still in development - it passes the Acid2 test! Great news that totally took me by surprise. Kudos and congratulations to developers on the IE team! This is a huge first step towards turning IE into a standards compliant browser.
For one or another reason I opened NRKs "foreign news" section today (I usually don't as I use a feed reader). Their top story; "Nå «is» det over". I could have understood it if it was Read/WriteWeb, TechCrunch or if Scoble had pushed it to the top of TechMeme. But not as the top foreign news story on what's supposed to be the most credible and serious news source here in Norway. WTF?
Although flickr provides some great services, their "badge" leaves a lot to be desired. Basically I just want something that validates, provides some basic configuration options and is fully styleable through CSS. Not finding a suitable replacement (coupled with the fact that I needed to find solutions to some of IE's js quirks anyway), I decided this would be a good opportunity to expand on my js abilities.
There's been some buzz lately about the updated Live Search Maps. Up until now I haven't been able to see it, something I figured was due to internationalization issues. Though after reading the comments to Scoble's recent post, I decided to look into it again; Turns out it's just Microsoft harassing (blocking) Opera users (again).
Whenever Apple launches something the blogosphere lights up, as such it's been impossible to miss the much hyped Leopard update. Advertised as an innovative update to a innovative product, even I was tempted to take a look at the "what's new" documentation. Oh man their marketing of Safari annoys me...
Nearly a day without access to my feeds and a couple of days (mostly) without net connectivity have made me realize that I'm irrational. It also made me think of a post Simon Willison where he's quoting Matt Mullenweg, about unplugging from the net to be more efficient. Matt's wrong.
