Merry Christmas from Intuit

My Christmas beta testing swag came from Intuit after a little rerouting to my work address. Normally, when you test a piece of software... you get the CD after its all done. This time, they sent all the beta testers a laptop bag as well, with "Turbotax Beta Tester 2006" embroidered on the front. I rock... I know.

And Thank You All Things for my Christmas card! I love the penguin!

My cards were sent out today. First year for cards... its a lot of work!

Pimp out Firefox2 with extensions, part 1

11.02.2006 @ 6:11 PM in Technology
i posted recently about Firefox Showcase, the powerful extension that will let you thumbnail view your open tabs with the touch of a hot-key. Now, I'd like to share a few more of my current extensions - I have 12 in all active - that make Firefox2 all that more sexy. Aardvark This is my favorite extension of all time. Aardvark lets you mess around with the structure of a website, remove elements and change div settings. Originally designed to be a developers tool, I use Aardvark a lot more for cleaning up pages I want to print. For example: I pull up a list of memory cards on Best Buys Product page. I'd like to print the list, but I don't want all the super annoying left and right column fluff. (Screenshot) Right click on the page, select "start Aardvark" in the context menu. hover the mouse over the center column page until the column is selected by Aardvark and hit the "I" key to isolate just that div. Everything else is gone, and I can print what I want to see, minus the fluff. (Screenshot) You can learn more about Aardvark from the Karmatics website. If you download the extension from there, you will need to allow the site to install. However, Karmatics has not updated Aardvark for FF2. But someone made the tweaks and you can get the Firefox2 compatible version here. Adblock Plus Simple little extension that gets rid off banners, flash ads, and other web annoyances. Filter sites, and add or remove ad blocking on the fly. Link Chatzilla I guess you only really need this if you ever irc. A simple clean running client that fits smoothly into Firefox. I use it a lot when I chat about Firefox and the Mozilla dev projects. But I'm a geek. Link Download Statusbar This extension gets rid of the pesky pop-upy Download manager and fits everything you need to know on the status bar.

Full of options, this extension lets you keep an eye on whats downloading without getting in the way of your work. Hover over an item to see the details in a tool-tip. Link DownThemAll! My second favorite extension, this

Thumbnail preview in Firefox just like IE7

10.31.2006 @ 11:03 PM in Technology
When IE7 was released, the one thing that caught my eye was a thumbnail preview of all your available tabs. Firefox 2.0 does not have it as a core feature. Well, a little digging and I found that there are a few extensions to choose from to give Firefox the preview power as well. My favorite is Firefox Showcase. This extension has so many features... showcase2.jpgview from a pop up... showcase1.jpgin a new tab... showcase3.jpgor even on your sidebar. Tons of settings let you tweak Showcase just how you want it. you can even animate a zoom on mouse over. hit F12 on your keyboard and the pop up shows all your open tabs from ALL windows, not just current focused window. Add the showcase buttons to your toolbar for easy one click access to all three showcase functions. Get Firefox Showcase Now!

Meh... maybe the name is a wee too long.. OK let's just call it the none-touch iPod. Hmmm.. that sounds like some rumored magical iPod that we first heard about in June. Peep the pics and I'll explain....
patent file patent file 2
These are some fresh Apple Patent images for a bezeled Ipod that makes the outer bezel the touch-wheel. Hence, perhaps, the none-touch (of the screen) iPod. The iPod's UI is designed so touching the screen and possible smudging/ruining of that precious widescreen display is held to a minimum. Those circles are meant to represent the actual active points for manipulating the controls; the entire bezel will more than likely be all touch active. I must give props to Apple for this clever solution to the widescreen issue and I would be quite pleased if this is what the widescreen video ipod turns out to use for navigation.

Firefox 2

By the way, Firefox 2 was released, so i'd prolly get it if I were you. FF2 is a steady upgrade to the browser that led us to a safer internet. IE7 was released too, and you should download that as well if your computer is compatible. IE7 did make a lot of improvements, but it's still not as robust as Firefox. However, its the biggest step Microsoft has made so far in sole browser, and props must be given for finally getting with tabs.

Google looking to Assimilate YouTube for 1.6 Billion

Google YouTube logo
Completely unconfirmed here, but I read over at Techcrunch that a few hushed whispers are going around that Google may be in the final stages of Acquiring YouTube - for 1.6 Billion - into its family of power player web services. Silicon valley has been in a tizzy about the previous news that YouTube was looking to be bought, and worries were that NewsCorp would snatch them up. Fears of a MySpace-Video spam 3.0 machine were quickly soothed when NewsCorp announced they had no interest in the video community site. Google would benefit greatly from this sale, seeing that Google video was almost immediately trumped by YouTube's popularity. We must wait and see. Via - Techcrunch
