Y’all may have noticed that basement.org’s elsewhere links have dried up a bit these days. They actually haven’t. They’re just not happening on this blog. If you’d like to follow the links I’ve been sharing, the easiest way is to just visit (or follow me) on Twitter (@richziade). There’s also an RSS feed fed by that account.
It’s just so much easier to publish quick tidbits this way. I primarily use TBUZZ to share links out. Eventually, I’d like to let that stream show up here on basement.org as elsewhere links. As soon as some time frees up, I’ll make that update.

“Polypage was designed to ease the process of showing multiple page states in html mock-ups. By adding simply adding class names to a document you can imply state and conditional view logic.” Translation: Niiiice.

Very sweet JQuery plugin that supports simple gestures. As the world goes more tablet, this stuff will become more relevant.

The NY Times app for the iPhone has sucked since it came out. It was slow, buggy and crashed a lot. The new version 2.0 is a big improvement. It’s faster and more reliable. It even has some new features. Nice job!

The mad scientists at the Arc90 lab have just updated Readability to make it even more diabolically effective. Details on the update are available here. No re-install is required if you’re already using it. It just gets automatically better (like wine).

I was about to sit down and put together a nice Photoshop template for creating iPhone wallpapers. Then I realized that everything has already been done on the Internet. No complaints here. Nice work.

I’ve pointed to color scheme makers before but this is completely badass (well, as badass as a color scheme tool is going to be). Color Scheme Designer let’s you mess around with color schemes, try them on a mockup Web page and then export the CSS. Many options. Really impressive.

Livesurface is an image library that allows you to drop your brand or logo into realistic looking photos. With a little help from Photoshop’s fancy perspective tools, you can do some pretty fancy things.

“Ever seen a great font in a magazine ad, poster, or on the web and wondered what font it is? Whip out your iPhone and snap a photo, and WhatTheFont for iPhone will identify that font in seconds!” Pretty damn cool!

Dealnews has a nice summary of price comparisons pitting Circuit City against other stores. The results? Just about everything is still more expensive at Circuit City. I wonder if they’ll still liquidate everything anyway. Ah, the uninformed consumer.

There are plenty of CSS galleries out there, but how many just focus on menus? That’s right, menus. Well 13 Styles does exactly that. Really nice collection for outright copying or inspiration.
