Firefox Just Perfected Tabbed Browsing. It’s Like Apple’s Expose Plus Spaces For The Web (From Techcrunch)

I’ve been playing around with this for a little while, and it’s amazing. I mean, this is probably the future of tabbed browsing. I’ve been using Chrome as my main browser for a while, but this and the other UI tweaks in this alpha may convince me to switch back. You can download it for Mac here and for Windows here. Be warned, though, this is the alpha, so it is potentially very buggy. Edit: If after you close it and re-open it again it asks to install an update, don’t install it, because it will get rid of Tab Candy.

(Also, let me know if those links don’t work, and I’ll fix them.)

So why is Google doing this? Because they're creating new features so quickly and the … Read More

Bad Connection: Inside the iPhone Network Meltdown (From Wired)

Bad Connection: Inside the iPhone Network Meltdown

For iPhone fans, it really was too good to be true. A pair of Apple executives had just described the latest model of the iPhone — the 3GS — onstage at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2009. The audience loved it. The 3GS was twice as fast as its predecessor, it included a camera that shot video, and the updated iPhone operating system enabled multimedia messaging and tethering — the ability to use the phone as a modem. Just one problem: While many customers in Europe and Asia could enjoy all those features, AT&T, the iPhone’s sole US carrier, wouldn’t allow video messaging or tethering at launch. In other words, the most advanced features wouldn’t be available to AT&T customers. Read more…

OK Go’s New Video, This Too Shall Pass, Features Awesome Rube Goldberg Machine

I can’t actually think of anything to say, so just watch the video. Edit: OK, for some reason the video didn’t work, but it should be fine now.

Happy Fourth of July!!

To celebrate, how about a new wallpaper? By the way, it’s probably too small for anything above a 13 inch. Sorry about that. It’s all I could find.
