I stumbled across a Beatles fan site called What Goes On today while reading about audio mixing and mastering techniques. Even if you're not a Beatles fan (who isn't? between early and late Beatles there's something for everyone) it's a fascinating read about the mixing/vocal/playback anomalies present in every one of their studio albums. Just reminds me that you don't have to be perfect to sound awesome. Also highlights that some people have way too much free time.
Read Josh's blog. Mozilla could not have done better.
I'm starting to doubt my current employer's commitment to ever letting me release a product that I've worked on, so today I applied for a position at the Genius Bar at the Tyson's Corner Apple Store. That's right. I'll keep you posted.
No WWDC for me this year, Apple scheduled it for early June when I already have vacation plans. I'm really bummed. I love WWDC and getting to see everyone.
Scott Collins describes in his blog how TrollTech has decided to dual-license Qt for all platforms, including Win32. This is a big day for them, and for open source.
I can't wait for my dishwasher to have a camera in it. That way when all my friends are standing around in the kitchen at a party, I can take pictures of them and remember all the good times we shared!
Ok, I felt it only fair to re-do my post from earlier today bashing the super bowl picture quality. FOX has shown a definite improvement over the championship games and even over the quality from earlier in the day (I still hold out hope their engineers read my blog).
It looks almost on par with ESPN, which for all intents and purposes looks pretty good. It's still not *wow* like all CBS football games are, but I think that's just the difference the extra 300+ lines of resolution makes. At halftime, I'm almost willing to admit I was wrong....almost ;) The overhead cam needs a lot more bandwidth, you get FOX's infamous swimming grass there on every shot.
The commercials have been pretty weak though ;)
So H&R Block claims that Americans overpaid their takes by a billion dollars last year. So if you average it out, that's each person overpaying by about $3. That's right, America. The federal gov't swindled you out of $3. Better run out and pay $75 so H&R Block can save you....$3.
