click-wheel ipod games removed from itunes

Seems to me this is a pretty good indicator of what’s going to happen to the classic iPod.

a new day

The iPhone has done more than shake up the phone industry—it has shaken up our collective vision for the future of computing. I’ve found myself building, designing, and dreaming about what’s next in mobile software without having to slot out time, or populate my to-do list. That’s the kind of interest and drive I want to have in my full-time work.

Today, I’m excited to announce that I’ve accepted a position at ZAAZ as an iOS developer. ZAAZ is an interactive digital agency, utilizing analytics to plot out digital strategies for their clients. Increasingly, those strategies are calling for iOS apps.

I have always been proud to be employed by 5TH Cell. It has been a privilege to be involved with so many wonderful and well-received projects, and to work with such dedicated and talented people.

I’m looking forward to this new chapter in my career, and can’t wait to build some great apps.

amazon press conference

If this is anything other than their tablet announcement, it’s a waste of a press conference.

movie clip brain reconstructions

About two and a half years ago I posted about a group of Japanese researchers reconstructing still images from brain waves. It looks like that line of research has progressed quite a bit since then.

layoffs at hp’s palm division

I’m sure this won’t hurt their “commitment to developing webOS as a platform.”

reading rainbow gets ipad reboot

Three reasons I like this news:

  • I remember watching Reading Rainbow as a kid.
  • I’m a pretty big fan of seeing the iPad used in education.
  • You can never have too much Geordi La Forge.

dress like steve jobs day

It was news to me. This morning a coworker told me it’s dress like Steve Jobs day. I, unfortunately, don’t have the black turtleneck nor the New Balance shoes to complete the costume.

friday reading

MG Siegler over at TechCrunch scored a double-whammy today starting with his take on the value of the iPad, and the threat it is posing to Microsoft.

When I went on vacation a few months ago, I brought both my laptop and my iPad. I promised myself I wouldn’t do any work during the trip — as a result, the laptop never came out. Not once. The iPad? I used it every single day, for hours.

It was followed up with an inside scoop on the now-imminent Amazon Kindle Tablet. The touch based Kindle sounds very much in line with the rumors and speculations, but the article is well worth the read. It looks to be the first interesting contribution to the tablet eco-system since the iPad.

Good stuff.
