The Offline Glass: This is fantastic. A glass that will only stand up if a cell phone is under it. This is needed in all bars.
Google Robot helps boy throw out first pitch: This is ridiculous and amazing. Google is doing things that are truly changing the world. And the story isn’t too bad either 😉
8 Months in Microsoft, I Learned These: This is a post by a kid out of college and working at Microsoft. It’s a little scary, the disparity between what you’re taught and what happens in the “real world.” Some of these things are understandable, but some are outright wrong.
Connecting Custom Post Types: I gave this talk twice this week. Here are the slides and resources.
The Missing Linc’s E3 Coverage: Over at my friend Joe’s blog there is fantastic coverage of the E3. You should definitely check it out!
Also announced this week: iOS7 and PS4. I may do bigger write-ups on these, but my initial thoughts are that:
- iOS7 looks really nice, if not incredibly familiar (*cough Android* *cough Windows Metro*)
- PS4 is doing it right. It’s like they took away everything everyone complained about regarding the Xbox One and removed it. It looks like they’ve also learned a lot since the launch of the PS3.
- I have a theory about 3rd gen consoles with the announcement of the Xbox One; it’s a lot like a musician’s sophomore slump. The Xbox 360 is incredible and Microsoft seems to miss the mark (despite my defense of them a couple of weeks ago).
