Safari 4 (beta) new awkward tab browsing What a bad UI idea to have merge the menu bar with the tab browsing. I don’t even understand why Apple did implement something so awkward for the user. Notice how the browser moves as you click the tab as they have multiple uses (menu bar and tab browsing). (via Tuaw)

How to Procrastinate Like Leonardo da Vinci →
Leonardo was the kind of person we have come to call a “genius.” But he had trouble focusing for long periods on a single project. After he solved its conceptual problems, Leonardo lost interest until someone forced his hand. Even then, Leonardo often became a perfectionist about details that no one else could see, and the job just didn’t get done. (via GiveMeSomeThingToRead)
Healthy Data - What Is Your Backup Strategy?
Beginning of the year 2009, I decided to make sure all my data should be healthy, in other words all my documents, pictures and home made videos and valuable piece of electronic documents should be backed-up. I was not just talking about a backup on an external hard disk (something I regularly do) or hard DVD copies that you drop at a friend house, but a regular painless (every day) remote backup...

Changement de nom
Fred: Sté mon nom n'a pas toujours été Frédéric Lemieux.
JiPé: Comment ça?!?
Fred: Ben quand j'étais jeune je m'appelais Jean-Frédéric Fillion.
JiPé: Pouquoi ta changer nom?
Fred: Ben techniquement j'ai pas changé de nom. Ma mère a renoncé à ma garde l'égale et m'a ensuite adopté afin de changer mon nom.
JiPé: !?!?!?! #%^*%^ Tu es un orphelin adopté par ta mère biologique! Tu me niaises là?
Fred: Non, pour l'espace d'une minute j'ai été orphelin afin de changer de nom gratuitement.
Fred: Le travailleur social est même venu chez nous à quelques reprises pour vérifier que tout était beau.
JiPé: Sacré Fred. Le jour où tu va arrêter de me conter ta vie, je vais m'ennuyer en criss.

Is The App Store Changing The Game Industry?
No so long ago Valve Software President Gabe Newell concluded at the annual DICE Summit that games are too expensive. For me the games were always too expensive and this is the main reason I almost never bought any games (except for the first edition of Diablo). Not only they are too expensive, but the choice is very limited considering that the industry is controlled by a few majors. A variety...

Urgency Is Overrated
This morning we had a good laugh about how email is used these days. We send an email and we take for granted that the person who will received it will read it immediately. People have the tendency to use all the possible ways to let you know they have send you an email and are expecting an answer. For exemple: Your client send you an email He sends you a SMS that he sent you an email He...

Scott is credited with originating the first smiley emoticon which he thought would help people on a message board at Carnegie Mellon to distinguish serious posts from jokes.
