Today I woke up. My sister is about to get a MacBook in a few days (it is shipping from Japan). So I am really excited and stuff. Seems that it is not only me that is excited about stuff related to Apple.
Today a lot of stuff went down in Apple Inc. They have completely changed there website from the Aqua glassy buttons look to something maybe more like Leopard??
They also released Safari for Windows :D. One new iPhone advertisement as well. But, I am not able to run the WWDC 2007 Keynote Address, and the suspense of looking at leopard is killing me.
I will be blogging more about this once I get into the action.
I was seeing my stats yesterday on WordPress yesterday and then decided to add a new widget to the blog. When I went to the presentation section an error occurred on WordPress. I am not sure if you have ever seen an error on WordPress before or not but it is kind of cute and funny. Check it out-
I really liked it 😀 . As always a quick refresh solved the problem 😉
After writing the previous post on Joost and I went to ping Technorati I saw that they have revamped there website. I mean they have actually revamped there website and have not given it a face lift like most websites. They have changed there “Sign In” form from a small toolbar like “Digg” to a brand new shiny light box!
Cool isn’t it. They have also added an array of slick new features to the website lately. Like of course Technorati Authority. Also now on the top there is a bar that shows the latests searches mades on Technorati (<<snip, snip>>) scrolling. Apart from the header the basic overall design is approximately the same.
I really like what they have done to there website. Unlike the other who just seem to ditch the old user interface and make a new one from scratch to get some hype for a few days, the Technrati people are actually working on what they have and are doing a great job :).
So I finally go a Joost invitation from the Joost and TechCrunch initiative to spread Joost invitations. So I signed up and downloaded it. Its pretty neat. I really liked the interface and stuff. But there is one problem, If I pause any video if just shows me an error that I can view the video now. Nor can I see anything else now from that channel.
So I see the video (actual movement) for about 2 seconds and then a long pause. This is bad .There should be way that I can stream it first and view it afterwards so that there is a pause free viewing.
Otherwise the video quality is great and there is a lot of variety as well. Tell me if you want an invite 😀
