iMovie team is looking out for me

Screen shot of a message displayed by iMovie with title ‘Editing Tip’ and message ‘You may achieve better results by individually adding only the best segments of your video’.

I added a whole long block of video into a project, so iMovie gave me this handy tip. It amused me. Maybe the next version of Pages will give notifications about poor typeface choices. »

when you think this blog makes you pessimistic about the average taste and intelligence of developers you should see the guy who forgot theres a convetion for a global close control. check out that sweet close control on the wrong side.

Kind of everything is wrong, as far as following conventions go. It looks like a tabbed preferences window, but there’s no indication which tab is selected. And ‘General’ always goes on the far left.

This Mac tablet mockup from Gizmodo’s comments is precisely why I agree with Adam Schwabe on why the public should have no input on Apple’s product design.

Ben Brooks on

Archive Utility is used by all of us to un-zip files. The one thing I hate about it is that after you un-zip a file you need to delete the zipped file. I set the second option to delete that zipped file — which is awesome.

Excellent tip.

Here’s another for Alfred users: add /System/Library/Core Services to Alfred’s Search Scope. It’s under Alfred Preferences > Features > Default Results. This means you can access Archive Utility and Software Update through Alfred. There might be some other applications in there you find useful. This does add some more junk to the results though, but this shouldn't be too much of a problem to a well trained Alfred.

A suggestion from YouTube

screen shot of video on YouTube. Box below video says: Upgrade to Flash Player 10 for improved playback performance

Upgrade to Flash Player 10 for improved playback performance.

Yeah, right. Better than Mac OS X’s QuickTime framework, courtesy of YouTube5. »

Over a year ago (in November 2009), we had the task of building robots in teams of six. This is the Engineering Part IB Integrated Design Project (IDP). Everyone who does Engineering at Cambridge should remember it. I did software (surprise!). Henry, our mechanical genius posted this video to YouTube. That’s Henry in the video; it was my camera.

I bring this up now because we recently won the prize for best robot, of those who did the IDP at the same time (about 12 teams).

The engineering department has some (blurry) photos: M2 2009 Robot Images. We were team 8. (Me in red.) »

Nancie Wight:

What to shoot? It’s too cold. Too much snow. Slush everywhere. No animals. (Ok-squirrels and crows) So, time to experiment. I suspended a glass casserole dish over two tall beer glasses. Put some water in it. Dropped in some vegetable oil. Slid a plate under the glass dish with coloured crystals and rocks from Sedona. Attached my 100M macro and shot.

Nancie has a series of oil and water photos, but I think the first — this one — is the best. It’s so perfect. Looks like a sci-fi interpretation of space. Maybe this is physics in visual form.

2D Boy blog:

The higher revenue at the lower price point brought about a realization about “price erosion”. The notion that “App Store price erosion is bad for developers” could be a backwards way of looking at things. What is generally referred to as price erosion occurs because developers are optimizing their revenue. If a game earns 50% more revenue at a lower price point, it’s a pure win situation as the developer makes more money AND more people get to enjoy the game. And if those two things are true, does it really matter what the sale price is? If we all charged double for our games we might all earn more money, but we could also end up earning less money because people would buy much fewer apps. »
