I’ve been a bit busy lately, and therefore haven’t written about things I wanted to. So here’s a little sum-up of three things I think deserve mentioning:
- Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar Beta
- I’ve used it for a little while, and it offers functionality as good as the one that can be found in the Web Developer Extension for Mozilla-based web browsers. However, what I really like about this one is the screen ruler; it’s a great way to fast measure an element’s size or similar, without resolving to making a screen dump and check it in Photoshop or to have a third-party program. What I also love with it is to automatically get an outline for elements, only when hovered with the mouse. The two gripes I have, however, are lack of keyboard shortcuts for tasks like validating the code (or hell, even View Source!) and that if I have displayed the screen ruler, it sometimes seem to hijack the keyboard shortcut
Ctrl + Rafter that (which I use for reloading a page).
- The Apple video iPod
- I’m sure it’s a cool product and a great gadget, but it disturbs me that Steve Jobs for a long time has said that he doesn’t believe in it, the last time in a statement two weeks before its release.
- The value of a blog
- There’s a very hypothetical way to calculate how much a blog is really worth. Nevertheless, it’s always interesting to speculate! 🙂
Apparently, this blog is worth somewhere between $ 40 000 and $ 65 000. A decent amount for having written it for seven months in my spare time, purely out of interest. 🙂
