Is This The Beginning Of The End For Phone Batteries?

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 16:51:48 +0000

As exciting as advances in battery technology have been lately–not least because of the efforts of Elon Musk, his Powerwall, and the Gigafactory in Nevada–a new glass created by MIT spinoff Ubiquitous Energy promises (threatens?) to turn current power-storage paradigms of their head.

Digital Media Minute Vs Google–Who Won?

Sat, 09 Aug 2014 17:38:39 +0000

As painful as it was for me to see after putting so much time into this site, I’ll admit it has also been morbidly interesting to watch the death of traffic to Digitalmediaminute.com in the last 3 1/2 years. You can see the basic idea in the screenshot, but suffice it to say that site […]

A Better Voice Activated Software For OS X: Enhanced Dictation

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 09:19:21 +0000

As far as I’m concerned the voice activated typing software I’ve used for typing blog posts, e-mails, and anything else that required more than a couple lines of text has been replaced. For years MacSpeech Dictate was my tool of choice to quickly get a few hundred words typed up, without risking repetitive strain injury […]

Link updated for 2016: Microsoft has just made the MSDN Library a free download! If you do any Windows development, MSDN library is a very useful tool to have. But wait – you say the MSDN library is already available online? Yes it is, but the search isn’t always very useful, and the web based […]

Voice Activated Typing Software

Mon, 29 Jul 2013 15:14:34 +0000

I have never been a very fast typist (or a fascist type for that matter), in fact I operate a keyboard in a fashion that might be called “touchhunting”. Lately if I’m writing something that runs more than 300 or 400 words I feel my shoulders and neck tighten up and I get more headaches […]

Google Database Application

Sat, 27 Jul 2013 19:28:16 +0000

Character Entity Reference

Sat, 13 Jul 2013 01:46:51 +0000

A nice HTML & XHTML Character Entities reference is available at cookwood.com. It’s a pretty good go-to reference for web developers, I have to say. The site is the official site for HTML Visual Quickstart Guide and offers many other HTML related references. As nice as this reference is I’ve been thinking about a better […]

‘The Pattern on the Stone’ Review

Fri, 02 Mar 2012 14:26:48 +0000

If you have friends or relatives who wonder how exactly computers work, here is a book to offer them which has probably the most lucid explanations that I’ve ever read on the foundations of computer science. This short book will not help neophytes distinguish between RAM and ROM-we have Wikipedia for that-but it’s hard to […]

As time goes on you’re aware that you’ve given permission to various apps to access information tied to online accounts you have with services such as Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Dropbox, Linked In, Instagram and Flickr, and possibly others.

Sat, 17 Sep 2011 16:55:48 +0000

There can be no better use of a single minute to make you want to travel: I know that 2012 is coming and that I should be pretty jaded about the richness of You Tube and all the other Web 2.0 extravaganzas that surround us in a virtual river of information, but I’m not. Maybe […]

The Game Of Games

Sun, 11 Sep 2011 17:27:31 +0000

Robert Scoble waxes damn near poetic on 40 minutes worth of audio as he describes what he calls the ‘game of games’, which is the way that Facebook and Google will encourage us to increase our involvement with them, as they get to know us ever better. Google is building an ‘identity system’; it even […]

Sun, 04 Sep 2011 13:56:02 +0000
