Just testing the new WordPress iphone app.
The first time I ran it the Save button was missing but restarting it fixed that.
Update: the photo upload didn’t work…
Update 2: the uploads did work, but it looks like the app assumes a specific upload directory is being used. A symlink fixed that.
SeatGuru.com – if you travel often, or are uncomfortable in your rare travels, you need to use this site.
SeatGuru will tell you where the best seats are – and the worst ones, too. I just checked in to my flight tomorrow and was able to select a seat in the best row – I just specified my airline and the plane type (all provided with the ticket) and it put up a diagram with info on all the seats. Click here to see my plane tomorrow. I selected 12C.
The diagram told me that Row 12 had extra leg room. The seat may be less padded, but that’s ok by me. I hate the way they pad airplane seats. I mean, what’s with the headrest? I hate how they push your head forward instead of cradling it.
Anyway, I am hoping for a good flight.

Niall has written a nice summary of the existing options that web applications have for storing data locally: Boost Ajax performance using local storage
This is Blogaholics, visualized as a graph using an HTML DOM Visualizer Applet (whatever that geekery means):
The website literally blooms like a flower as it forms into this graph. Our blog is purdy ;)

After the whole YouTube fiasco we have now switched to blip.tv for our own personal videos.
We’ve been using blip for our last couple of videos. I find the service fairly easy to use. In comparison, the files seem to load as fast as with YouTube and the quality seems a bit higher. However, the conversion into flash is slower and the ease of embedding is not as user friendly – I love that on YouTube the embed code is right there. With blip, you have to click a couple of times to get there.
As far as the embed video player is concerned, they seem equally good. The YouTube one "feels" more web 2.0 – it’s all curvy and whatnot. But the blip one is much more seamless and unobtrusive. Just a preference choice there.
I will continue to use YouTube from a consumer perspective – I search and embed them all the time. But from a copyright perspective, we are moving our own personal content to an area that allows us to assign the license per video. I am sure there will be many more video services to come, but I am pleased so far with blip.
What other video services have you used?

Just downloaded a sweet new mac app called todos. It is a keystroke activated program (control-command-option-t) that launches a panel of your app icons – faster and slicker way to open up any app you want.
It’s a semi-transarent black background with all your icons. So much easier to see and click what you want.
So, what does your todos list look like?
