iTunes (finally) introduces Complete My Album

March 30, 2007 at 04:16 PM

On the couple dozen times I've bought songs from the iTunes Music Store, the fact that I'd have to rebuy the same songs again to complete an album definitely stopped me from buying any more tracks from the same albums. Now Apple has introduced "Complete My Album," their answer to this issue. You get $0.99 off for each song off an album you've already purchasing. Brilliant move.

Logo design from LogoStick

March 22, 2007 at 02:45 PM

One of the many pretty decent online logo design tools, and they've got a great looking site as well. Not really any reason for your business, no matter how small, to have an ugly ass logo you did yourself in Microsoft Word.

Culturally significant words and phrases from The Simpsons

March 20, 2007 at 02:38 PM

A fantastic look at the words and phrases from The Simpsons that have made their way into popular use.

Cromulent means valid, acceptable, or possibly commonplace, coined by David X. Cohen for the Simpsons episode "Lisa the Iconoclast"; embiggen, more obviously, means to grow in size.

When schoolteacher Edna Krabappel hears the Springfield town motto, "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man," she comments she'd never heard of the word embiggens before moving to Springfield. Miss Hoover, another teacher, replies, "I don't know why; it's a perfectly cromulent word".

Browser testing CSS and JavaScript

March 04, 2007 at 09:28 AM

Some good thoughts from Roger Johansson on browser testing for CSS and JavaScript. Working at a PC-centric employer I don't test the more obscure Mac browsers and I focus on PC Firefox but otherwise my habits are very similar.
