Buildwith chrome

August 17, 2013

Chrome has released a new experience. For all the lego fans "Build with chrome" lets you make you legos online, explore builds made all around the world by chrome users and learn from the "build master" (a sort of full tutorial to build some awsome lego's on the paltform).

Another beautifully designed Google Chrome experience that keeps pushing the browser away from it's comptetitors in terms of web graphics performance.

Changing to permalinks in wordpress - keeping social proof

August 17, 2013

One of the things to worry when chaning URL's in any website is keeping social proof in past shared links, keeping sure that these are still valid and still counted when users visit a page.

Plugins like digg digg, or sharethis help us with this but the way they worked is based on the exact URL that was shared. So for example if someone has 100 shares on facebook on a blog post for example if they change URL these buttons will be down to zero again.

The trick is to keep post the "old URL" even if the URL has changed.

Google launched their newest experience with the google chrome browser.

The experience is called PEANUT GALLERY and it lets you add intertitles to old film clips using your voice, then share those clips with your friends. It uses your computer's microphone and the Web Speech API in Google Chrome to turn speech into text.

After 2 years in the making Picturelife comes out

August 17, 2013

Does this relate to you?

"You connect your device (mobile phone,sd card whatever), Iphoto opens (after some time). But the photos are sort of disorganized. Maybe it’s not even iPhoto. Maybe it’s another default photo-storage service or your go-to cloud app, like Dropbox or any other Picture program you might use. Wouldn't it be great that you could just have your every Photo in one place, organized and synched to all your devices?

Facebook Introduces Graph Search

August 17, 2013

At its Menlo Park headquarters on Tuesday, Facebook unveiled its take on search, the social giant’s major push into helping its users find content from within Facebook.
For as big as Facebook has grown, something like this has been sorely needed. More than one billion people are on Facebook’s network, with upward of 240 billion photos and more than a trillion connections within the social graph. For anyone looking for a specific topic of information, place or person, that’s a lot of stuff to sort through.
