Out on the trail again today, early. Spotted a box turtle and several different types of mushrooms. Saw a few chipmunks, three to be exact. And more mosquitoes and spiders, no snakes this time, it was earlier. Tried to get a photo of a jumping spider on a golfball.
Apple came out with the iOS 7 update today, got the iPad started first and after about 1.5 hours finally had the update downloaded on the MacBook through the SAP_Internet (the slow one for our “personal” use). I then updated the iPhone and didn’t get finished with that until about 4pm. No trouble at all, everything updated and rebooted just fine. My first thoughts are that I really don’t like many of the “visual” changes, it looks flatter and a lot brighter. Some of the differences between the iPhone and iPad show they clearly are more interested in the iPhone market, I can see why but don’t understand why the code isn’t more interchangeable.
I worked on merging the aspx files for our CPR website, should be finished by tomorrow.
Went out to the Johns Creek Mac for BOTM, used my mall of ga list, over 1221 now. Saw the fellas there, John (divorced, glasses) and Brian the fitbit dude. Found out today the Brian has lost almost 100lbs in the last year. He should be dropping down blow 200 this weekend he says. Kate, Chantel and Ray where working tonight and I asked about Meg and Tommy only to find out they work on Saturday and Sunday last week after they got back from vacation.
It was getting dark by the time I headed out of there, only 7:30pm, fall is coming. Getting home I just watched the last 5 episodes of Cougar Town, these are the oldest shows, 2009 still very funny. Didn’t get to taking photos of the beers I got tonight, two Mikkellers a Stout and a Porter.
And finally… we’re here. This “update” moves away from the scanning of the Photos album and moved to an import model, where your files are stored directly in the app’s sandbox. This opens up a huge number of workflow possibilities – direct import, delete, direct upload / download, and much more.
jQuery Mobile: Touch-Optimized Web Framework for Smartphones & Tablets
A unified, HTML5-based user interface system for all popular mobile device platforms, built on the rock-solid jQuery and jQuery UI foundation. Its lightweight code is built with progressive enhancement, and has a flexible, easily themeable design.
I started to convert my Beers, WebApp to JQuery instead of the iUI that I began about 2 years ago. The iUI project just doesn’t have enough going for it. I began today a bit during lunch and had the Media webapp that didn’t work well before modified by the end of lunch. Started on the Beer WebApp after work, finished the main 4 lists, All, Cellared, Deep Cellar, and Last 100 beers.
Latest stable version – 1.3.1
Up this morning without any hitting of the snooze button, just laid there for a bit listening to a book and got up to take a shower. No rain but overcast all day. Noticed some buds on the trees by my window @ work. Spring may be getting here soon. All day the clouds were racing toward the North, at a good clip I might add. Rained right after work, then stopped.
Looked up info on the next release of PhotoSmith for the iPad, here they added more info on the 2.3 version and it looks like maybe next month (April) it should be coming out.
Here’s a photo of the very sexy Milla Kunis from Esquire magazine, ouch.
Work, frustrating again, not really bad but… Big guy has a meeting scheduled for 4pm EST, yeah like NO. Dude if you want to talk to Atlanta just stop in and speak, instead you schedule two events for the WHOLE world and then that’s it? I hope they record the thing and put it up on the web otherwise I won’t be seeing any of it.
I stopped in at the Duluth T-Mac and had a Blue Point Sour Cherry Imperial Stout, the manager from way back was there, the bald one who’s wife I met one time out when they both were drinking, damn I forgot his name.
Today the new version of Red Dawn came out on DVD/BlueRay, Brian and I went over to the Movie Stop and picked our copies up. Watched the Tivoed episodes of Cougar Town before and then after we went down to Brian’s and watched Red Dawn since Nicki was watching TV upstairs. I liked this version, a bit different and very much up to date as too politics and things like that. It was in a bigger city and not such a rural area as the other one was.
Ordered a couple of adapters for the mini/micro USB connector, right angle to allow a regular USB cable to fit better on the D700.
I can’t wait for the new version, it’s a great program.
They should be ready in about 1-2 months I’d say. They keep saying weeks but I’m a bit reluctant to hope for that.
A lot of progress has been made on the new sandboxing functionality, Import and Delete dialogs, and stability and speed.
Shhh… don’t tell anyone, but while the Chris’ and Nico are busy working on the forthcoming Photosmith app update, v2.3, I thought I’d give everyone a quick update – a peek behind the curtain – as to what we’ve been up to. I’m too excited to keep this under wraps.
I’m looking forward to the upgrade but I’ll bet it comes with a price tag. I was wrong, read the article and it will be a free upgrade, not sure when it will arrive, they say at least a few months, it’s already January 2013 so maybe in another month or so?
Fancy very pricey $150+ aluminum & carbon fiber case for the iPhone 5.
Very cool oscilloscope and logic analyzer that connects to the iPad, iPhone iPod. Around $300 for each is a bit pricey in my book, but really cool all the same.
Updated my shit when I got home today, about 5pm through 7pm, had a bit of trouble with the iPhone upgrade, my own fault for pulling the USB plug. Had to restore completely after that, man it takes a long time to copy all the music and apps.

645 PRO—pro-quality output, for the first time
645 PRO is the first and only iPhone camera app to give you lossless “developed RAW”—dRAW—TIFF files*, a workflow essential for many professionals. Its HI-quality JPEGs, too, are of a quality typically associated with higher-end digital cameras, with the option to save MAX-quality JPEGs with no visible compression artifacts at all.
There is a great PDF manual supplied with the app, as well as many online resources where you can read about it. Good starting point is the creator’s website: 645PRO for iPhone. Yo can buy the application in iTunes store, for $2.99, get it now: 645 PRO
Using your iPhone, you can connect to a Windows PC or Mac OS X and see the files, programs, and resources exactly as you would if you were sitting at your desk, just on a smaller screen.
Mostly I just don’t like the fact that they changed the connector, I’m really not excited about the headphone jack on the bottom either. Mostly, I’m upset that now all my connectors will have been rendered useless and I’ll need to get at least one more just to allow me to have one in the house and in my bag. Then I will also have to carry the old style as well for my iPad, this sucks, at least for now. I wonder if they will update the one for iPad next and what about the iPod? does this one match the ones on the nanos?
Apple’s new OS-X that will allow the things you do on your computer to be linked to the things you do on your iPad, iPhone and iPod devices. Messaging has been added to allow sending messages to other devices as well. I don’t know what kind of things any other computer/OS manufacturer has but it seems to me that all the things most Mac/Apple users used to think about Microsoft&Windows trying to take over the world, they have played right into Apple’s hands as they ARE taking over the world. I know I would be lost without all the connectivity I have between my devices and computers, to quote another marketing cliche’ “I’m Lovin’ it”.
After a couple false starts, Photosmith v2.1.1 is now available (or will show up shortly in your part of the world)! We’ve added a few new features and fixed many old issues as well.
