App Trap With AppTrap, when you move an application to the trash, you’re automatically asked if you want to move the associated preference files as well. Dropbox Let’s me share my files across my different computers and iOS devices. Stores my 1Password vault too. 1Password This is where all my passwords and licence keys are stored. Can’t […]
This is a list of the stuff I’ve installed on my Mac mini server that I use at work. RAID setup Ukelele : I use Ukelele to configure my french Logitech keyboard. Actually I don’t need to use Ukelele but just to install the appropriate keyboard layout and icon file distributed with Ukelele in my […]
This is the time of the year when the web goes to Paris for two days of IRL networking. This year we are back at Les Docks on the outskirts of Paris and I think I like this place better (hoping they’ll have the fantastic food like three years ago and not the Danone stuff).
Marissa Mayer, Vice President, Search Products and User Experience, from Google is on stage talking about Google Goggles (on Android for now) that lets you start a search with a picture you take by using image recognition (shape, color, OCR). Music and video will be next. Next she talks about her vision of news : hyper-personalized […]
Ryan Sarver, director of platform from Twitter, announces the Twitter firehose for everyone at LeWeb. No details yet but they are working on it for the start of 2010. Twitter is also launching a website for developers in a few week. He also talked about OAuth API that will have 10x rate limit increase and […]
Ethan Beard, director of Facebook Developer Network, tells us at LeWeb how Facebook is about identity through your social graph. Facebook connect is the easiest way to logon to a website and he just announced that developers will have access to Facebook’s users’ email now. I believe this is one less reason not to use it and […]
Jack Dorsey from Twitter fame demonstrates the Square mobile payment system. After going through the demo effect (problem reading the card, wifi too slow) he showed us a very interesting system. The main selling point is anybody can take payment without setting up a merchant account. Think PayPal for real life. Not sure it will […]
Just arrived at LeWeb’09 ! Nice badges with our Twitter handle on them. Speaking of Twitter it when down a few minutes ago, maybe because we have a twitter stream up on the screen on stage ? Heating is on and wifi seems good so far, and the venue is packed, very impressive. 2300 participants […]
Just upgraded my WordPress install and decided to use the Thesis theme. It is a really a very powerful and highly customizable theme with great CSS support. My blog should be evolving design-wise in the next few days. Stay tuned !
http://icodeblog.com is a nice site with a bunch of tutorials on programming the iPhone.
I have a bunch of mail in an old Gmail account and today I decided to merge it into my Google Apps account that I now use. Previous methods I was using for moving mail was through IMAP but after looking around I found out Google’s Email Uploader. Google Email Uploader uploads mail to Google Apps from […]
This is the latest buyout rumor. If it is true, Facebook is dead. We are now waiting for the equivalent of email in social networking : truely open and widespread standard… just let it happen.
No IMAP access at Gmail was the only reason I had not switched all my mail to Google. As much as I like GMail I want to be able to choose my mail client depending on device, location, etc. IMAP native clients on phones are still the best way to read mail IMHO on a […]
I got my invite this morning to Seesmic ! Thank you Loic ! This is Twitter on steroids. I can see where this is going… video is only a step, what is next is full media twittering. Easy publishing of any media to my friends/followers is the next step. This is a really fun ride […]

1. Fire the committee. No great website in history has been conceived of by more than three people. Not one. This is a dealbreaker. (Seth’s Blog: How to create a great website) Could not agree anymore ! I have been through this and it really doesn’t work.
