No Comments

ultimate-gmail

This guide will help you to switch from your current email provider to Gmail and shows you how to make most of it. That being said, if you already use Gmail, why not have a quick look of last few chapters that have a few handy tips even for advanced users.

You have to signup to get the PDF but for someone really looking to exploit the power of Gmail it may be worth it.

Inside Microsoft’s War Room

No Comments

AS the sun rose over the mountains circling Los Reyes, a town in the Mexican state of Michoacán, one morning in March 2009, a caravan of more than 300 heavily armed law enforcement agents set out on a raid.

All but the lead vehicle turned off their headlights to evade lookouts, called “falcons,” who work for La Familia Michoacana, the brutal Mexican cartel that controls the drug trade. This time, the police weren’t hunting for a secret stash of drugs, guns or money. Instead, they looked to crack down on La Familia’s growing counterfeit software ring.

Worst case of Copyright infringement?

No Comments

My 2005 Ice Dragon entry, called “A Tale of Two Tarts” was apparently printed without my knowledge or permission in a magazine and I am apparently the victim of copyright infringement.

Read the article about how Cooks Source Magazine not only stole an article but what their response was.  Shocking…

Speed up your website with Google’s mod_pagespeed

No Comments

today, we’re introducing a module for the Apache HTTP Server called mod_pagespeed to perform many speed optimizations automatically. We’re starting with more than 15 on-the-fly optimizations that address various aspects of web performance, including optimizing caching, minimizing client-server round trips and minimizing payload size. We’ve seen mod_pagespeed reduce page load times by up to 50% (an average across a rough sample of sites we tried) — in other words, essentially speeding up websites by about 2x, and sometimes even faster.

Flash Vs HTML5

No Comments

The Flash Vs HTML5 debate has caused much discussion over the recent months and it certainly got us thinking here at Code. We believe the two technologies are not in competition and each have their purpose, but thought it might be amusing to actually put them in direct competition.

Is Silverlight doing the death knell?

No Comments

Perhaps you read the news late last week or this past weekend that Microsoft is shifting their strategy when it comes to Silverlight. Essentially, they indicated that they were commited [sic] to using it as the development platform for Windows Phone, and for certain media applications (like Netflix), but for a true cross-platform strategy, they’re going to shift their focus to HTML5.

Sounds like it to me.

Jumping on the MS bandwagon is a dangerous, and costly, thing to do as a developer.

Microsoft Trademarks

No Comments

Microsoft holds a lot more trademarks than I had thought.  Surprised by a few of them:

  • Backstage
  • Freelancer
  • Hohm - Something I’ve never heard of from MS
  • Rare
  • Vine

Some very generic phrases that they’ve attached the trademark to.

Grasping at straws?  Do we need another Yahoo clone?  How many more portal-like websites do we need?

What are your thoughts?
