How to Avoid CMS Selection Confuction

In which I reveal the two most important questions one should ask when selecting a CMS.

Evil Doctor Browser vs CSS3 Spiderman

Here at Kaldor Towers, we’ve been spending a lot of time comparing the performance of the browsers on various phones and tablets. Here is a video of a CSS3 animation powered Spiderman intro running on lots of devices at the same time.

Newsstand in a Nutshell

A year ago I had a dream that I was having an intimate chat with Steve Jobs about newspaper and magazine applications. “All the news apps currently out there “, he said after a thoughtful pause, “are shit. Why on earth should I have to wait tens of seconds, or even minutes, after I start the app before I can see the first page of my publication?”

Epic Fail Epics

I want to write a poetry book, and I want y’all to write it for me. It’s going to be a poetry book documenting epic tech fails in 2011. So we’ve got lots of material from the last few days, and quite a bit more from the year. More than happy to have multiple poems per incident.

Selling Out Friends on Empire Avenue

In order to understand the social media douchebaggery that happens on our interwebs, you need to hold your nose and dive in some times. I try most things, but get bored of them pretty quickly. So I figured I had to try Empire Avenue (EAv), the stock trading game in which the stocks are people, and the bigger the douchebag the higher the value. Fortunately you don’t need to piss off (invite) your friends to get started.

Google’s Moat and Castle

In a fit of madness, I tried to draw a summary of everything Google is involved in, and all of their main competitors. Utter madness I tell you.

Crunch Time for RIM

Poor RIM took a beating this evening after announcing their quarterly financials. It all seems rather up and down. Probably more down. Here is my summary of their 2011 so far.

Shooting down paywalls

With the New York Times paywall coming up, I thought I’d dump some more paywall thoughts. Are secure paywalls even a good idea?

Back with a Bang

My blog hasn’t had enough attention recently. You see, I was involved in some top secret shiftyness and I signed a lot of pieces of paper which meant I couldn’t really talk about a lot of interesting things. But I’m free from that now.

The Day of The Daily

So The Daily is live. Just finished watching the launch announcement and was impressed. The app is really feature rich. It can live update during the day, has 360 degree video, live audio articles, a large sports score database, games and good social integration. And it even has the weather!
