Here’s what I made during today’s HackDay @ TweetDeck. Our illustrious leader is uploading the rest now on the @iaindodsworth YouTube page.
No biggy. Was updating the blog this morning and hit Update Framework. Of course, that blats my custom change for doing leepa.co links on the short URL link below each post. I will fix it later.
Very proud of this. TechCrunch do a Fly or Die review of the TweetDeck for iOS that I’ve been working on at TweetDeck for the last 3 months. They give it a fly.
The new TweetDeck for iPhone still lets you add as many columns as you want and swipe through to view different streams, but you also get a unified Home column, which can combine your Twitter and Facebook streams into one. The app has nice subtle touches, such as the diagonal swipe to see more Tweets from the same account (my favorite). And instead of timestamps cluttering each Tweet, the timestamp changes at the top as you scroll through your stream. If you want to jump to the top to the most recent Tweet, just tap the actual time (yeah, someone had to point that one out to me too, but these are the kinds of hidden features power users love).
WARNING: There is swearing in this - but it’s also awesome.
Got the Windows Update reboot loop of death this morning. You know, where it fails to install updates and rolls back. To fix…
- Uncheck KB982018 and install all other updates
- Install KB982018 on its own
- Reboot And you’re done.
Yes, really, it’s that stupid. Enjoy!
Simple but not obvious.
- Load up simulator
- Grab a finder window
- Drag jpg/png into iPhone Simulator window
- It’ll open up Safari
- Long click on Image
- Save Image
- (If this is the first time on this emulator) Long click on Image and Save Image again This way you can use the picker and everything. Great. Better than the solutions of random folders in ~/Library I think
Gotta love Japanese humour.
I have tested this, and can back up what Derek is saying. It is more than a little worrying - but also easy for the Dropbox guys to fix.
Ignoring the IE9 propaganda - just for a second… LOOK CHROME REALLY DOES SUCK. Google really have their work cut out there. As more and more people get laptops, the battery usage of the browser needs to be looked at more closely. Also of interest how Safari fairs on Windows there - someone should do the comparison of browsers on Mac.
