Metro and Windows 8

I took some time to look at the videos of Metro/Windows 8 and also download the Developer Preview. Plenty of information is already available at the MSDN website. Probably the best of the presentations is the one given by Jensen Harris - 8 traits of great Metro style apps. Taking these 8 great traits point by point I'd like to give you my impressions as a long time iOS and Mac developer.

PlayMaker for iPhone is here!

The iPhone App I've been working on for some months has finally been released to Apple's App Store. It is a football game designed for armchair coaches who want to design their own plays. You can see it in iTunes by following this link.

New Blog Software - Same old sh**ty posts!

Well I've moved my personal blog into a Drupal powered site which now completely ends my brief romance with blojsom. Hopefully this romance with Drupal will last a little longer* since I am tired of working on websites for free. If you are looking for blogs about more technical stuff, then visit my "forgotten software" website.

*actually I'm studying Ruby on Rails now.

Waiting for the iTunes mobile/iPod phone.

This was posted at Engadget. Oh I already have an iPod. In fact it is a 5Gb; the very first model. I quickly found out that I couldn't fit my entire CD library on there so I developed my playlists and swapped music continuously. Now with smart playlists I don't even think about it too much any more, I don't really need another iPod until this one dies.

Learning To Cascade

I like to learn new things and when I started trying to change the look of my blog I realized I needed to learn CSS. Up until now I've viewed html and CSS as sort of a output language for tools such as Dreamweaver or GoLive. I figured if I ever was asked to write such a tool then I would learn it just as I learned Postscript once when I was writing some printing routines for a software application I was authoring. Well, I'm in the middle of learning CSS right mow. Or I should say I've learned it but I'm not yet happy with the results.
