Google Chrome 15

Thursday, October 27th, 2011 | Business | No Comments

Google Chrome LogoGoogle released Google Chrome version 15.

The only real change, is the addition of a New Tab page.

At the bottom of your New Tab page you’ll see some “bars” (not sure what the official name is yet).  By default it’s split into two options, “Most Visited” and “Apps”.

You can drag apps / websites to create new tabs.  If you want to rename a new tab you double click on the tab and you can give it a name.

The release coincides with an update to the Google App Store.

Here’s a video showing the new features:

iPhone 4S: How’d Apple Make that Site?

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011 | Business | 4 Comments

Apple has a pretty cool web page for the iPhone 4S.  It’s not something you would expect to see on a web site.

When I first saw it, I had assumed they were all separate images being animated one at a time.  I know it had to be CSS3 doing the transitions, but didn’t realize quite how elegant the solution was.

@johnbhall does a great job illustrating Apple’s approach to making the site we see on the iPhone 4S page.  His example simplifies Apple’s approach a bit (imagine his example, but with multiple sprite images, one for phones, one for copy).


I took the original article creator at his word, but some things didn’t add up.

@johnbhall says that his example is jsut a demo, but he has the concept behind the iPhone 4S page entirely wrong.

How do I know?  It’s pretty easy…

10 Forgotten iOS 5 Features

Friday, October 14th, 2011 | Business | 1 Comment

iOS 5I’ve only had my phone upgraded to iOS 5 for 2 days, but with everyone getting their iPhone 4S today, I wanted to post some lesser known or forgotten iOS 5 features that are still pretty cool.  I know, how can we forget something that just launched 2 days ago!

Some you might just not know how to use (like weren’t we supposed to be able to find our friends, it’s a downloadable APP!).  Oh, and there are tons of new options under “Accessibility” which seem to be hidden.

Here are 10 feature you may not know existed, but I kinda like…

Help: After iOS 5 Upgrade Lost my Contacts

Thursday, October 13th, 2011 | Business | 443 Comments

iOS 5I’ve seen a huge spike in traffic on my site searching for iOS lost contacts.  We now have 6 different solutions to restore your contacts.

Thought I’d post something specifically regarding iOS 5, and some solutions that are out there.  Personally I had no problems upgrading, and think losing contacts may just be because the initial “sync” hasn’t gone through yet (remember an iOS upgrade resets your phone to base iOS 5, then imports your information after).
