It’s all but a done deal now: Apple will unveil the iPad 3 on March 7 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time (1 p.m. ET)
Besides the time and location information, the invite only says “We have something you really need to see. And touch.”
The words are superimposed on what looks to be an iPad.
A great piece from Vox Games!
Then I met a wise woman who told me that, to get a perspective of where I stood, I had to leave behind what I had and where I stood and stand opposite, looking back.— Seung Chan Lim | realizingempathy.com
The Pinoy Siri: Introducing VANGIE
That’s it! I’m really getting an iPhone 4S if only for this!
Okay, so depending on your current subscription, Globe actually caps your bandwidth depending on how much data you use each month. Meaning, if you download movies and music quite a lot on P2P and love spending time on YouTube, you’re bound to use up your 15GB-35GB allowance pretty quickly and be limited to slower speeds afterwards.

That explains why the next time you try to download content or simply browse through your usual sites, you notice a sudden drop in connection speeds. Because, in the infinite wisdom of the NTC and telcos, you simply can’t have too much of a good thing. Sure, they’d be quick to shove their Fair Use Policy and Service Agreement papers in your face when you start complaining, but they’d still have to explain why countries like South Korea enjoy the fastest internet speeds on earth and we’re still bound to these bandwidth caps.
Then again, the government owes us that explanation. I mean, are BPO’s the only ones in need of generous internet access? Forget households, public schools and government offices barely have decent systems and networking!
The direction of web design is changing. It’s not just styling something to make it look good; it’s about the bigger picture. Designers can’t just take their knowledge of print design and apply it to the web. Web designers have to think differently; they have to push the boundaries of what was previously thought possible.— Farah Assir, Designer at The New York Times
The Meizu MX is not based on Android 4.0 (at least not for the next few weeks) but it already uses Roboto (system-wide).

First things first: How awesome are CSS3 animations?! I mean, I never really fully grasped the idea of non-Flash animations until now. And I no longer can see why CSS3 animations (and HTML5, at that) couldn’t become the standard soon.
Anyway, I came across Eric Bidelman’s Google+ post providing a link to what he thinks is a great use of SVG and CSS animation by Anthony Calzadilla. While that particular project didn’t quite work as it should have on my browser, another animation easily caught my attention while reading through Calzadilla’s blog.
Mad Manimation is a parody of the now-famous Mad Men opening sequence (originally by Imaginary Forces) where Calzadilla thought it would be cool to re-create the Mad Men intro, but replace the man’s shiny shoes with a pair of classic Adidas.
That blog was dated April 17, 2011 and did not provide any links to where the project is being developed, as it was still in that stage then. He also did not indicate where the final animation would be posted—I mean, how was I to know that Animatable was an HTML5/CSS3 animation platform?
It was only when Calzadilla himself tweeted back that I realized the project has already been up for three months now. It was real nice of him to respond and provide the URL to his work.
The result was spot-on! It’s as close to the original animation as it could be and it’s difficult to imagine how this was all done without Flash.
If you know me, you know I love anything Mad Men so this post shouldn’t come as surprising. But add to that new possibilities these upcoming web technologies bring and you got all my senses churning.
It’s a Mini-Mac Pro but not really :)
