Incredible 3D Mapping Technology

November 11th, 2011

Apple recently purchased C3 Technologies, a company partly owned by Saab before Apple got its hands on some nifty mapping technology.
It would be pretty cool should these 3D maps find their way to iOS devices.

My Thoughts on iPhone 4S

October 5th, 2011

My thoughts on iPhone 4S in (re)tweet form:

The bottom line is (while the new model is a nice refresh) I still feel like my iPhone 4 is up-to-date. No need to buy a new one when I’m getting lots of improvements for free with iOS 5 next week.

Use AirPrint on iOS with Lion Macs

August 24th, 2011

Please see this post for Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8).

To print from iOS devices to printers shared through Macs running Mac OS X 10.7 Lion download AirPrint Activator.
My article on how to print directly to PDFs which will get stored on your Mac’s desktop is still relevant for Lion Macs. Just activate AirPrint with the AirPrint Activator and skip the section The Preparation of this tutorial.

The Hit List Bookmarklet for Mac and iOS

June 10th, 2011

Now that my favorite task manager for Mac has gone 1.0 and The Hit List for iPhone is waiting for approval by Apple, I wanted a quick way for creating new tasks from content found on a website using Safari on Mac, iPhone and iPad.

  • Select some text and click the bookmark: new task with the selection as its title.
  • Don’t select text and click the bookmark: get a popup to enter the task’s title.
  • Don’t select text, click the bookmark, leave the popup empty: the website’s title will be used for the task.

In all cases the URL is stored in the comment field of the task.

There is an official Safari extension to create tasks but it only works in Safari for Mac and creates tasks formatted differently than I wanted them to be. This is why I’ve created this bookmarklet.

Add the Bookmarklet to your Browser

To use this bookmarklet just drag the following link to your bookmarks. You can also right click it to copy or add it to your bookmarks depending on your browser. Then sync your bookmarks to your iOS device.

Bookmark this link: Task ✔ (Updated July 8th, 2011)

Creating tasks from selected text works on Mac and iPad. On iPad put the bookmarklet in your bookmarks bar and in Settings.app enable Always Show Bookmarks Bar. On iPhone, iPod touch and iPad when selected from the popover menu, the selected text gets deselected before using the bookmarklet. You should copy and paste the text from the website into the popup on those devices. It’s still very quick.


August 30th, 2011: Fixed a bug occurring on pages with embedded frames from other domains. The script can’t access these frames and now ignores them.

July 8th, 2011: Better handling of URLs with anchors; better handling of non-letter characters in the task’s title.

June 13th, 2011: It now preserves the hash part (after #) in Gmail URLs and other URLs with anchors. Using the text selection in Gmail (and other multi frame sites) is now supported.

Source Code

Read on if you want the bookmarklet as source code.

Portal 2 Soundtrack Available for Free

May 26th, 2011

Download the Portal 2 Soundtrack Volume 1 Songs to Test By for free from the game’s official website thinkwithportals.com.

Wake up your test subject, open the chamber door, and press play–let Aperture’s patent-pending rhythmic compliance enhancers do the rest.

A great gesture by Valve to release this CD length (that’s about 74 minutes for you youngsters) soundtrack for free.

May 7th, 2011

If you own a Mac and use Google Reader, go download the latest Reeder for Mac beta: 1.0 Draft 14. It’s fantastic! Read what’s new at MacStories.

I also can’t recommend the and versions enough. I’d pay 50€ each without thinking about it. Those apps have become an essential part of my digital life.
