For those that want to know more about what the 24 Le Mans is, and how it is different from other races around the world, there's a great movie called "Truth in 24" which is available from iTunes for free. I think Audi sponsored it. A good movie, even if you're not a racing fan.
I agree, as your time becomes more valuable, that stuff becomes less important to continue to throw time at. Not to say the memories aren't great, but a) your skills have improved to the point your time is worth more, b) you have less of it left to flitter away, c) you have things that give you a greater return on your time investment (ie, kids, etc).
Uhm. There are all sorts of tools available now for building instruction and teaching. Am I the only one here with a Master's in Instructional Technology?
Plato was cool for it's time, but there are a lot of great options out there. We don't have to get stuck in the past.
Was this actually initiated by Sony? Or was this a deletionist getting his rocks off?
I'm pretty sure Craigslist is not the problem.
Of course they do....
The best thing Google did marketing-wise was not try to put the Google stamp on Android.
In many other cases they try to work the brand in where it doesn't belong, and every time they fail they dilute it a little more (I'm looking at you, GoogleTV).
Putting a stamp on it doesn't make it better. Putting better people on it with better research of the market makes it better.
Knock me over with a feather.
I've spent the afternoon working with the Facebook API.
As far as I can tell you can only get this information if the user specifically allows you access to it.
If you have a sample of code that gets around this, please post.
Remember when the phrase "Google it" meant to look something up on the web?
Now it seems to mean pushing forward with some experiment with a 50/50 chance of success.
As in "That chair is broken, but here's some duct tape, just Google it."
Right. I'm talking strategy.
If they wanted to force the issue they could switch over to WebM for YouTube, drop Flash and h.264. This wouldn't drive adoption of Chrome as much as it would force other browsers to support their format.
This would accomplish their goal.
I don't think they would do it, because the threat of the lost ad revenue would be too big.
I think more likely they'll back peddle by claiming that they are "listening to their users" and keep h.264 in chrome.
Maybe they'll even spin it into a positive..... "Chrome: Now with h.264 video!"
Google does have one rather large bullet in their arsenal.... YouTube.
I've been interested in seeing the advances they have made in getting h.264 video and the HTML5 video tag to work over at YouTube sans Flash, and was pretty sure that's the direction things were going.
Now if Google shifts away from this format, will they drop support over at YouTube?
And will they stop streaming to mobile devices like the iphone that have built in YouTube players and hardware h.264 video support?
That seems like a bigger deal than Chrome, which seems to be a nice developer browser, but doesn't have huge enough market share to matter.
Personally, I like to try to predict what the comments will be before clicking the link to open them.
Usually I can nail it right on.
Especially when dealing with the DAP (Daily Apple Post).
