Lenovo Steps Up

Hot on the heals of the child like complaining from Acer we have Lenovo with a totally different response. “Although we don’t like Microsoft providing hardware, for us, it just adds one more competitor,” Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing said during the conference call in response to analyst’s question. “[They’re] just one of our many competitors.

Acer Whines

So Acer is complaining that surface is competing directly with them (and it is) and threatens that they’ll look at alternatives to Windows. I can certainly see that they’d be upset, but what alternatives are there? Apple won’t license OSX and the general consumer isn’t interested in Linux (despite how rock solid it is now). […]

IE is Doing the Right Thing with Do Not Track

Microsoft gets a pretty bad wrap for it’s browsers. IE (specifically version 6) has been a thorn in the side of every web developer for years. With that type of history it’s sometimes hard to give MS credit when they do right. In IE 10 ‘do not track’ will be enabled by default, and I […]

Things are backed up online and, in theory, we can edit offline with Google Gears (or other solution). So looking at this promised land I decided to move my blog writing […]

The News: IE to use Webkit & Staying creative

Well here is an interesting development. In a recent developers conference in Sydney Steve Ballmer said that “Apple has embraced Webkit and we may look at that.” This is very interesting as the rendering in IE sucks currently and Webkit is awesome.

Today’s News

While reading  through my feeds today I noticed a post from Sitepoint regarding the use of IE 6. While most of us web designer’s wish IE a quick and painful death we always wonder if we really can stop supporting it. Many notable sites have stopped (37signals) but for the rest of us can we […]
