Deferred Image Loading - Not Such a Good Idea

tcr! · Mar 22, 2013 at 8:45 pm

Deferred image loading is all fun and games until your content is loaded outside your website.

When might this happen you ask? Check your RSS feed for quality assurance.

PS— I’m not saying 24 ways fell victim. I’m just saying.

Thoughts: Google Keep and Evernote

tcr! · Mar 22, 2013 at 7:51 pm

Since I’m a nerd dork, I installed Google Keep on my Nexus and tinkered with it for a few minutes. It’s a beautiful little app and draws much inspiration from the Google Now theme. I wish Google would use this look and feel across all their properties and get rid of that ugly muted black header, blue and red button disaster they’re using now. Google Currents is another beautiful gem but the usability leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Google Keep's note in Android

Below is the same note in my favorite note app, Evernote. The white background and black text remind me too much of MS Word. Evernote for Mac is beautiful. The Android app needs that same paint brush.

Evernote's note in Android

Evernote has many advanced and mature features that the newly launched Google Keep hasn’t incorporated yet. Encrypting text is huge for me along the dedicated desktop app. All my desktop browsers also have Evernote Clearly installed and 99.99% of the whatnots I post on tcrbang.com has been saved to Evernote first via that extension. At the moment my Evernote has 56 notes tagged for later reading and possible posting.

Personally, I’ll continue to use Evernote simply because Google can, will and does kill off services as it sees fit. Cases in point: Google Notebook and Google Reader. If you’re a dork nerd, you’ve already heard. Evernote’s whole business model is based on what they do. Google’s business is about search.

Remember kids — the big picture is that these websites that you sink your data and photos into aren’t public utilities. They just might close up shop and leave your ass cold and shaking in the wind.

If it wasn’t for Google Notebook getting the axe, I probably wouldn’t be using Evernote. They made it so super-duper easy for me to import my notes into their service, they were a godsend. See Google wanted me to put my notes into Google Docs. Bullshit Malarkey. I needed a note taking app, not a crappy online word processor. I loved Evernote so much after the move, I’ve been a premium subscriber since 2010.

PS— Skitch has more awesome.

Google Now and a New Place

Google Now and a New Place

Google Now asks me if I care about travel time to this place. Silly thing is that when I touch the green pushpin, nothing happens. I have no idea what that place is … but I’m somewhat interested now.

Aww, I thought it said "Do you care about time travel to this place?" and I was like, YES!

San Francisco’s Raygun Gothic Rocket

tcr! · Mar 14, 2013 at 7:58 pm

Raygun Gothic Rocket

Raygun Gothic Rocket

The Raygun Gothic Rocketship is a rococo retro-futurist future-rustic vernacular between yesterday’s tomorrow and the future that never was, a critical kitsch somewhere between The Moons of Mongo & Manga Nouveau.

The photo above is from Burning Man but the rocket ship now lives on Pier 14 in San Francisco. And yes, I will pilot this to the Outer Rim.

It’s also for sale.

There’s only one… it’s unique. (Although, if you’d like us to make a second or third… we have the technology).
