My Cupertino Number

Steve Jobs is the ultimate master of spin and hype. If Jobs told us there were WMD’s found years ago we would be okay with it. In fact we would probably encourage him to keep looking because he had us by the throat and we loved him for it.

For the last month the internet has been buzzing over the World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco and speculation about unveiling of the new 3G iPhone.

On July 11 the 3G iPhone will be released in Canada, a year after the original was made available in America. The new version will run on a faster network, include a GPS and a software store. The announcement of the new iPhone not only captured the attention of Mac fans like myself, but anyone who is a fan of technology and wants to have their life simplified into on

My Scheduled Break

Google FaviconIn the Google Blog yesterday they talked about updating their favicon, which I commented about yesterday. I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but I have to assume that the article was written in reaction to me.

Some people have wondered why we changed our favicon — after all, we hadn’t in 8.5 years(!). The reason is that we wanted to develop a set of icons that would scale better to some new platforms like the iPhone and other mobile devices

I guess that is an acceptable answer. Between Google and I, only one of us are developing applications for mobile devices and advertising outdoors so I guess they can do what they want. Interesting though the number of favicons they went through and the difficulty they had with such a little icon, but Google is about branding so they had to do it right.

Today may be Saturday but it’s the first day of my sixteen days of vacation.

I am taking a week off before the wedding to finish any last minute planning, stay relaxed and perhaps further Niko on his quest of dominating Liberty City. After the wedding we will be spending a few days in Banff for our honeymoon and then it will be back to work.

Because I’ll be a little busy for the next few weeks updates may not be as frequent but we will return to our regularly scheduled program by the end of the month.
