What does Microsoft have in common with Apple? They're both planning for a future without Flash.

"For the web to move forward and for consumers to get the most out of touch-first browsing, the Metro style browser in Windows 8 is as HTML5-only as possible, and plug-in free. The experience that plug-ins provide today is not a good match with Metro style browsing and the modern HTML5 web."

"What makes Apple so successful today — and so threatening to its competitors — isn’t just its design and engineering capabilities. It’s the fact that Apple is beating its rivals on price, too, something that once seemed inconceivable."
The new Apple: The best gadgets, but also the best prices. Tuesday, 6 September 2011 at 12:09 pm. This isn'ta brand-new phenomenon, but it's worth repeating and re-emphasizing: What makes Appl...

The video offers a glimpse of today's Belarus - its nature, cities and people. Belarusian cities are a combination of medieval, Soviet and modern architecture. The time-lapse clips in the 2nd half are especially good.

"Seriously, though: just buy an iPhone."

Android phones are for geeks who love spending time fiddling with new gadgets.

iPhones are for geeks who love spending time with their family, rather than fiddling with new gadgets.

As usual, astute commentary from John Gruber, echoing (and expanding greatly upon) many of my initial thoughts regarding Amazon's new Kindles.
Amazon's New Kindles. Wednesday, 28 September 2011. Kindle Fire. The Kindle Fire's slogan says it all: “All the content. Ultra-fast web browsing.” That's the best sort of marketing message...

"You must sleep sometime between lunch and dinner, and no halfway measures. Take off your clothes and get into bed. That's what I always do. Don't think you will be doing less work because you sleep during the day. That's a foolish notion held by people who have no imaginations. You will be able to accomplish more. You get two days in one -- well, at least one and a half." --Winston Churchill

"After being acquired, Slide had operated as an independent unit out of Google’s San Francisco office, maintaining existing apps like SuperPoke Pets and experimenting with new ones such as messaging app Disco and photo-sharing app Photovine, which was released only last week.

The apps, none of which were extremely popular, will be sunsetted over the next few months."

Too bad. I just started using Disco for sending SMS announcements to different groups of people at church. Time to find another app, or go back to mass texting via the Google Voice web interface.
Slide, the social apps company that Google bought just over a year ago for about $200 million, will be dissolved, and its esteemed leader Max Levchin will depart Google, sources close to the matter to...
