The Quick & Dirty:

  • 9+ years in the biz, 10 messing around
  • All the latest in HTML, CSS, JS & PHP (Sorry, no .net or Ruby skills yet)
  • Cross-browser compatible code from Photoshop or Illustrator files.. or napkins!
  • Custom Specialities in Wordpress theming & plugins, Twitter & jQuery
  • Subversion, server-log analysis, and blocking hack-attempts (of late).
  • Data/Project Geek. I ♥ timelines.

I’ve compiled some handy PHP functions I’ve had to whip up. More extensive code-samples are also available.

Xperia TL

The phone people love to hate. After a week of spec-hunting, review-reading, and even cardboard models, I decided to give the TL a try. I’ve got at least 14 days, and up to 30 thanks to Best Buy (which seasonally dropped the price to $50 instead of the usual $100). I’m not ignorant of the …

Smartphones, Tablets & Dumbphones: Which are glanceable?

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m into tech, and that perhaps too much (by most reasonable standards). But what gets me about tech isn’t the tech itself (believe it or not!). I’m actually into 2 very distinct aspects of tech: it’s knowledge-utility, and the consequence for daily routine (ultimately very psychologically focused!). I’ve ┬árecently posted …

Tablet sizes, meet UX

Now that there’s finally a useful selection of Android tablets out there (with decent 3.2 software and dual-cores), the market is feeling it’s first round of heat. Funny thing, no one seems able to decide what size to produce or market. Samsung has left it up to the users, and is about to offer 7″, …

Quick Takes: Sept 30th, 2011

Whenever I use an iPhone, I’m lost. It’s totally based on icon-awareness, making it the worst device for old people who don’t know what the icon is. Second iPhone critique (aside from not having swype): there’s so many inconsistent UI elements, and the settings are a cluster. It started off simple, and people have learned …

Quick-and-dirty Responsive Layouts

So there’s the great thing called response.js. It’s the solution often presented as ideal. But it’s a bit overkill. I want a fast, light, small script that will do the job, without all the media-query overhead. [script lang='js'] [/script] So here it is.. works with any jQuery enabled site, and simply adds a ‘.mobile’ class …

What’s Next, Steve?

I’ve suggested a few things this week to friends regarding Apple’s previous CEO. First, is that they have had a “succession plan” in place for a few years now. Second, that Jobs was much more than a CEO. People use terms like “visionary” do describe this quality, but fact of the matter, he ran Apple …

Virtual keyboards need Materiality..

I wonder what would happen if you took some thin cardstock and cut out the iPad keyboard’s keys. It would be a inverted keyboard – keys going down, instead of up. The point is to give your fingers some edges to know where keys are without looking, enabling faster typing for longer durations (read: blog …
