Fix your damn shit. This is like the millionth time the integration between Spotify and Last.fm stopped working. I want to scrobble damnit!
On a side note, have you felt the speed of my blog? WP-Supercache plugin kicks freaking ass.
Faces – I want it to autotag (or add keywords)
Using the new feature “Faces” it would certainly be USEFUL if there were atleast an option in iPhoto to allow it to add in keywords for the person you tagged. As it is now you first identify your peeps using Faces and then you have to manually add the keywords to your “Faces”, if I don’t do that none of my photos will be tagged when uploading to Flickr. Pretty fucking lame!
Exporting multiple events to Flickr – let me make one set of that for you
Flickrexport did not handle it well and the flickr uploader from iPhoto’09 handles it even worse. If you select multiple events in iPhoto’09 and then export them iPhoto will then actually, without asking, merge your events into one single set on Flickr. Not good at all.Â
Creator of Flickrexport, if you want to top Apple – please enable me to be able to just select all my events, click one or two buttons and then have all my events into their own sets in Flickr.
If you use FireFox, give this a whirl. Seriously cool and gives a neat alpha preview of the future.
Crunchyroll is a video site like YouTube but specialized in anime. I knew that Crunchyroll had been talking about going legit and that they were signing some content distribution deals but I really needed to see it to believe it. Before they worked sort of like YouTube (and in some ways I guess they still do) for anime and had quite a lot of questionable material (copyright-wise) on their site.
They now offer streaming shows in high quality from their site, one of the absolute coolest thing is something they call “simulacast”, this means you can one hour after the latest Naruto airs in Japan – watch it in 720P on their site. Naruto and many, many more (and more coming) are available for only like 60 bucks a year. THIS IS PROGRESS.
In fact this is such a good deal that the largest supplier of Naruto torrents, Dattebayo decided to close down their subtitling of Naruto and insteadÂ referÂ to Cruncyroll and Viz Media (distributor who also offers Naruto in streaming for free, but a week after airing).
Now a streaming option for video I am much more apt to pay for than a streaming option for music, I would just like to be able to bring it with me in a portable format – I’d even be fine with DRM downloads as long as they worked on my iPhone/iPod. Â (Oh and yes I know that you can rip streams but I’d rather not).
My only caveat with Crunchyrolls service is perhaps that they insist on using FLV which is not really aÂ favoriteÂ and is a format that is also quite overly processor intensive. Then again I haven’t really checked..maybe their streams is MP4 compatible and I can watch them on my iPhone..I’m guessing not though. Anyway, since I do watch Naruto I will probably sign up for a year of Crunchyroll to try the service out.Â
Someone..please..launch world-wide TV series/movies “Spotify” service. I’d pay way more for such a service.
LÃ¤ste en artikel idag pÃ¥ IDG om MobiSpine som Ã¶nskar bli nÃ¤sta Ericsson eller Google. Viktigt med fantasi och visioner men skulle Ã¤ven sÃ¤ga att resultat och produkter spelar in. FÃ¶rstÃ¥r inte vad MobiSpine producerar som Ã¤r banbrytande eller ens intressant fÃ¶r den delen.
RSS lÃ¤sare som kan brandas och leva i mÃ¥nga skÃ¤rmar.. och? Skulle det vara innovation (idag)?Â
VÃ¤ntan pÃ¥ enÂ regnig busshÃ¥llplats. Du hivar upp mobilen och vill mobilsurfa. Hur bÃ¶rjar du? Du klickar fram nÃ¥gra bokmÃ¤rken, Aftonbladet och Expressen. Sedan kommer bussen.
â€“ Du gÃ¥rÂ oftast inte till en vanlig webbsida. Det Ã¤r fÃ¶r krÃ¥ngligt. Egentligen vill man titta pÃ¥ annat innehÃ¥ll. Men adresserna Ã¤r fÃ¶r lÃ¥nga, sÃ¤ger Joacim Boivie.
Men snÃ¤lla, ni menar att lÃ¶sningen pÃ¥ detta Ã¤r att “krympa” webben och anpassa till mobilen? HallÃ¥!? 2009 anropar! VarfÃ¶r tror ni iPhone sÃ¤ljer sÃ¥ bra? FÃ¶r att folk vill ha “hela internet i fickan”.
Och om jag nu skulle resa bakÃ¥t i tiden och skaffa mig en K750 sÃ¥ skulle jag precis som fÃ¶rut fortsÃ¤tta kÃ¶ra Opera Mini.Â
MMS Ã¤r en tjÃ¤nst som jag hoppas folk ska ha vett att gÃ¥ ifrÃ¥n. Det Ã¤r en tjÃ¤nst som gÃ¶der operatÃ¶rerna och som borde pensioneras i takt med att E-post i mobilen flyttar in. MÃ¶jligtvis kan det vara nÃ¥got i utvecklingslÃ¤nder, men kurvan fÃ¶r dem fÃ¶r att gÃ¥ frÃ¥n SMS til E-post och mer avancerade mobiler Ã¤r SÃ… mycket kortare Ã¤n vad den varit i utvecklingslÃ¤nder eftersom massproduktion och intensiv konkurrans kommer att mosa ner priserna.
LÃ¤ngre in pÃ¥Â kontoret vilar en vÃ¤rldskarta pÃ¥ tvÃ¥ talkbjÃ¤lkar. Den ska snart komma till anvÃ¤ndning, hoppas Hilj. Han har grandiosa visioner.
â€“ Vi villÂ bli nÃ¤sta Ericsson eller Google, fast pÃ¥ vÃ¥rt omrÃ¥de. Vi har kommit vÃ¤ldigt lÃ¥ngt, men nÃ¤r vi som pensionÃ¤rer blickar tillbaka kommer vi begripa att det hÃ¤r bara var bÃ¶rjan. Om tre Ã¥r har vi flera hundra anstÃ¤llda och jobbar med flera hundra operatÃ¶rer.
Ledsen att behÃ¶va sÃ¤ga det men ni behÃ¶ver komma pÃ¥ nÃ¥got nytt om ni ska stanna i spelet. Artikeln pÃ¥ IDG kÃ¤ndes i det nÃ¤rmaste lite som en desperat annons. Betygen och anvÃ¤ndningen av eran RSS lÃ¤sare pÃ¥ App Store borde sÃ¤ga nÃ¥got om hur lite den tillfÃ¶r en modern plattform – inget alls.
Edit March ’09: Duh. Imdb provides well hidden RSS service for this, this is an example of my IMDB vote history RSS feed:Â feed://rss.imdb.com/mymovies/list?l=8062614
You can just grab that feed and change my number “8062614” for your own number and add it to your site. Just use the WordPress plugin I mention below that shows RSS feeds from your sidebar and you’re golden.
Edit Jan’09: Here, I made a service for you, just enter your IMDB ratings page to scrape and go nuts!
I have been looking for different ways of getting my IMDB movie ratings into my blog. I found this script called PIMP that was a PHP scrape from the “my movies” page in IMDB. After looking into it for a while though it seemed like an overly complex solution..and then I remembered Dapper.
Dapper is a web service that makes it easy for anyone to scrape pretty much any content from any website into Dapper XML or RSS. In my case I set up a Dapper service to scrape my IMDB movies page. To do this first of all you need to make your IMDB movie ratings public, the rest is very easy in Dapper. The result can be seen in my sidebar. I just selected the table cells and set the movie titles up as the RSS title and the movie ratings as the RSS pubdate field. After that I used the KB Advanced RSS plugin for wordpress in order to customize the RSS widget.
I thought about extending this into also parsing in my comments on IMDB but the requirements of at least 10 fields for IMDB comments just kills it for me, usually I just want to go like “crap” or “decent flick”. I’ll extend it some ohter way later me thinks..or not..I’m lazy.
I made my Dapp App (My Movies IMDB Final) public (it’sÂ extremelyÂ simple..). Feel free to go nuts. If anyone want a tut, drop a comment.
