Google60 is Norbert Landsteiner’s art piece that tries to convey what google.com search would have looked like back in the 60’s — when IBM System 360 monsters ruled the machine rooms. An absolute gem for all the 360 nerds left out there.

datePosted on 11:34, July 30th, 2010 by Many Ayromlou

If you’re a fan of those old 8-bit (amiga/atari) colour cycling animations, you should definitely check out these beauties…..Absolutely superb :-). More info here.
BTW. You can thank Mike Ferrari and Joseph Huckaby for the art and the accompanying code….

HTML5 according to Apple….

datePosted on 09:30, June 4th, 2010 by Many Ayromlou

Well, you all know I’m a proponent of HTML5. I think the standards are now mature enough that we can (should/will) give up on proprietary plugins/kluges. To that end — and I think for a demo at WWDC’10 — apple has just released a page showcasing what HTML5 can do. Have a look at it and I think you’d agree that flashs’ days are numbered. I specially like the “smooth as butter” scaling on the video player. Also, as usual apple shows you step-by-step how to do all that stuff on your own. Nice :-). BTW, safari web browser is required to view these.

From Daring Fireball:

Update: If you go to http://developer.apple.com/safaridemos/ instead of http://www.apple.com/html5/, you can use Chrome to try the demos.

 Have a look at these experiments with HTML5 Canvas tag. Simply amazing.

Okay maybe this is a bit dramatic, but I really think the days of flash as a web media presentation platform are numbered. HTML5 is coming on strong, you can already do video streaming using the new canvas tags and now here is Akihabara, a set of libraries, tools and presets to create pixelated indie-style 8/16-bit era games in Javascript that runs in your browser without any Flash plugin, making use of a small small small subset of the HTML5 features, that are actually available on many modern browsers. More info and a half dozen demo games are here. Let the old-skool arcade games begin :-).
