This blog is closed

Sun, 18 May 2008 10:48:31 +0000

I’m closing this blog today. I simply can’t give the necessary time and I’m constantly feeling guilty because of that. Worse - today I found out that someone used a bug in the blog software to add HTML code to every page. That’s the problem when you do not update the software from time to [...] launched

Today something big is happing for me. is the successor for CASE Apps. While CASE Apps was basically a platform to promote the applications that I have written, Gravity is something bigger. CASE Apps was a single person thing while Gravity is driven by a number of very cool people. We have dedicated resources for [...]

AlterEgo, Core Animation and Divide & Conquer

Thu, 29 Nov 2007 12:41:41 +0000

Today AlterEgo has gone live. AlterEgo provides stunning cool effects for iChat and Photobooth. Core Animation AlterEgo is heavily using Core Animation for all kind of things.

Thu, 26 Jul 2007 19:22:08 +0000

More than a year ago I released the first version of a Objective-C class to interact with the Apple Remote Control. With Sofa Control 2.x this wrapper got some great new features. Today these changes are released to the public as a version 2.0. I strongly recommend to upgrade to the new version of the wrapper. [...]

Mac OS X has a number of APIs to create stunning real-time graphics. There is OpenGL, Core Video and Core Image to name some of them. These APIs help you to get the most out of todays machines and graphics cards. With Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, Apple introduced the Quartz Composer technology. Wikipedia says about Quartz [...]

Quartz Composer Remote Control

Sun, 20 May 2007 07:48:14 +0000

Steve Mokris has developed a Quartz Composer patch to use the Apple Remote Control. Very cool. Today one has to hack Quartz Composer to find out how to develop patches. But let’s hope that the development of QC patches becomes much easier with an official API in the near future (autumn). More exciting Quartz Composer news in [...]

NSCell Image and Text Sample

Fri, 04 May 2007 10:06:34 +0000

Some time ago I wrote about the restrictions of bindings and the fact that custom cells often need more than one data element - see Data for a custom cell in a NSTableView. There were some very good comments on the article and also the request for a sample code. So I took some code [...]

Too big for the Campus?

Fri, 04 May 2007 06:11:45 +0000

On thursday of the conference week they put the attendees in buses to drive them [...]
