Pure CSS3 Bokeh effect

One of the best apps made using CSS3, that’s for sure. A few more options would be nice, such as changing colours of the circles and being able to place them manually.

jQuery plugin: Quicksand

I love Mac apps, especially for their attention to detail. CoreAnimation makes it so easy to create useful and eye-pleasing effects. Quicksand aims at providing a similar experience for users on the web.

What if William Shakespeare wrote The Big Lebowski?

I’m a massive fan of The Big Labowski. And let’s face it, who isn’t? I’m reading this when I have a spare few minutes. “You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don’t wanna know about it, believe me. Hell, I can get you a toe [...]

Google’s superbowl advert: Parisian Love

When you think about it, it’s kinda hard for Google to create an effective advert about searching. However, they managed to pull it off. It’s been on YouTube for a while but was also played on the Superbowl commercial. Apparently.

jQuery plugin: Flip

” What is Flip? Flip is a jQuery plugin that will flip easily your elements in four directions. Try it “

America is broke, and needs its old friends

“Barack Obama’s $3.8tn budget is a vastly complex affair. But one fact stands out plainly: in layman’s terms, America is broke. The federal government’s outgoings will exceed income by about $1.6tn this year; over the next 10 years combined, the predicted gap is $8.5tn.”

Nexus One finally adds Multitouch support

“Much more significantly, though, they’ve capitulated and enabled multitouch in Browser, Gallery, and Maps — great news and a big win for the Android community at large.”

Chrome OS Touch? Coming soon?

I would rather have Mac OS X on a iPad—I doubt we’ll see that in the next year or two, but I can wish. However, the Chromium devs have a quick demonstration of what they would like to see, and it’s very interesting.

Logos are dead

“They are a hangover from old-school thinking about branding. There is no desire by the public for a new logo. They are simply an old-fashioned approach to differentiating products or services [..] symbols invented to accompany brand names are a waste of time, money and effort.”

Google phases out support for IE6

“Google has begun to phase out support for Internet Explorer 6, the browser identified as the weak link in a cyber attack on the search engine. The firm said from 1 March some of its services, such as Google Docs, would not work “properly” with the browser.”

Fun with CSS3

It’s pretty cool the effects you can do with CSS3, no doubt. Even if IE doesn’t have a clue what you’re trying to achieve. This page tries to have some fun with the border radius propery.
