TWO months of the year 2010 has passed and I think I am basically on the same “figurative” plane as I was before.
Not really though. I have been constantly reading articles about design from a guy who does make a lot of sense to me. I emailed him, and told him that I have learned a lot from what he has been writing. Some articles go back as far as 2006.
They are the fundamentals. The basics that I missed when I hopped on to the web design train some 8 years ago.
I used to read Jakob Nielsen then. But it seems to me like designing sites like useit.com would get me zero clients. 😉 Then again, the basics of what he has preached still holds true. That people don’t want to think when they browse a website.
And in the words I will borrow from mr Andy, “everything in context”.
Short term goals. Alright then. I must climb up this curve. This sine wave!
Well, I will focus, or at least try to focus on Digital djing, with my VCI100SE. Alongside with that, I would like to lose some weight.
Only time will prove that those two things may require only 2-3months.
Happy valentines day to us all!. 😉 Hope you had a great time with your love ones.
Today also marks the Chinese New Year! 😉 Kung Hei Fat Choi… (spell check)
I took a color test this morning from Yahoo’s article about CEOs choosing a different color as the rest of us…
Here is the result… It did not mention that I would become a CEO though… OW!

Edwards and Towers now has a purply-glossy new website. 😉
Finally. It is settled. Apple releases a tablet. And it is called an iPad.
It functions like a very large iPhone! I am not sure how much it costs though, but it looks nice. Yes nice. But I am not sure if I need one though for all the things it can do..
It is being talked about everywhere in the internet. From my usual Gizmodo, Engadget, Macrumors, and other tech bloggin sites.. hell even PC World mentions it, and deemed it a “thing to beat” even though no one knows its functions are.
Today, Apple will release (or is said to release), the fabled Apple Tablet. Will it be called the iSlate? or simply Apple Tablet?
What is true though is a good number of people are waiting for it. Maybe not all will buy, but mostly just to know what the Cupertino company and Steve Jobs can deliver.
Microsoft was a disappointment at CES. They did not release a tablet-like product. They however showed products by other companies, like the one from Archos, and others that are running on Windows.
I guess where Apple gets the upperhand among other companies that build these products. Apple is good at making its software running on its own hardware.
An officemate of mine told me just days ago that my Macbook Pro looks so beautiful and modern. I smiled and agreed with her. Although mine was bought last July 2007. 😉
