    class at UNC Chapel Hill The project was supposed to be three weeks long I was too busy freelancing so I ended up working 20 hours straight to get it done on time The guide includes step by step animations explaining different rules in soccer It also has an interactive map of the world showing all different participating countries and their winning records You will also find an interactive map of Germany with all the venues where the games were played On the top of all that you have a coloring game for kids that let you color the official Fifa 2006 logo Click here to view the graphics CakePHP or CodeIgniter Nov 15 2008 Post a comment Programming By Vu Nguyen I am trying to choose a framework for a personal project that I am working on After asking a few people and looking around the Internet I decided to use CakePHP Pretty much everybody agreed on that CodeIgniter is slimmer and faster than CakePHP So what made me choose CakePHP over CodeIgniter Since most of the work I plan for this project will be in flash I want to find a framework that communicates with amfphp If you donâ t know what amfphp is check it out here Cake has a plugin that is supposed to take care of that I have not tried it yet though I also started learning Cake first because I found the tutorials a bit easier to follow So far I really like the baking concept It took me about 2 hours to write a simple blog content management system and that includes all the time I spent reading the tutorials You can find more information about CakePHP here Page 5 of 5 1 2 3 4 5 Browse by category 3D Apple

  • BiofusionDesign | iPad usability study from Jakob Nielsen
    the re emergence of a usability problem we haven t seen since the mid 1990s Users don t know where they can click To exacerbate the problem once they do figure out how something works users can t transfer their skills from one app to the next Each application has a completely different UI for similar features He also offers some suggestions on how to improve usability on the device Add dimensionality and better define individual interactive areas to increase discoverability through perceived affordances of what users can do where To achieve these interactive benefits loosen up the etched glass aesthetic Going beyond the flatland of iPad s first generation apps might create slightly less attractive screens but designers can retain most of the good looks by making the GUI cues more subtle than the heavy handed visuals used in the Macintosh to Windows 7 progression of GUI styles Abandon the hope of value add through weirdness Better to use consistent interaction techniques that empower users to focus on your content instead of wondering how to get it Support standard navigation including a Back feature search clickable headlines and a homepage for most apps Note that he is talking about specific applications from the app store and not about the default apps that come with an iPad Go here to view the full list of applications he tested You might also like Iphone SDK 4 0 license agreement bans ported Flash apps Previous post The world s leading companies Next post Gulf oil leaks could gush for years Follow any comments here with the RSS feed for this post Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed You may also like Iphone SDK 4 0 license agreement bans ported Flash apps Browse by category 3D Apple Architecture Arts Awards winners Books

  • BiofusionDesign | Steve Jobs on Flash
    demonstrates that Flash is no longer necessary to watch video or consume any kind of web content And the 200 000 apps on Appleâ s App Store proves that Flash isnâ t necessary for tens of thousands of developers to create graphically rich applications including games New open standards created in the mobile era such as HTML5 will win on mobile devices and PCs too Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future and less on criticizing Apple for leaving the past behind Ouch Although I agree with most of what he said I still think that Flash is not going away anytime soon On a side note it appears that the next version of Google Android will support Flash You might also like Why Flash is still relevant in the HTML5 world Adobe and Google Announce Flash Analytics Adobe Flash to eliminate bandwidth costs with P2P Iphone SDK 4 0 license agreement bans ported Flash apps Jeremy Keith s HTML5 for web designers book is out Previous post Axis Maps releases indiemapper a web based thematic map application Next post How much time do americans spend on elevators A ton Follow any comments here with the RSS feed for this post Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed You may also like Why Flash is still relevant in the HTML5 world Adobe and Google Announce Flash Analytics Adobe Flash to eliminate bandwidth costs with P2P Iphone SDK 4 0 license agreement bans ported Flash apps Jeremy Keith s HTML5 for web designers book is out Browse by category 3D Apple Architecture Arts Awards winners Books Cartoons Design Expedia Funny Illustrations Infographics Maps Miscellaneous msnbc com New York Times Open source Personal Politics Portfolio Programming Social networks Sports Travel Tutorials Typography Videos Browse by date

  • BiofusionDesign | Not impressed by the acclaimed Cirque Du Soleil in Seattle
    told to go to door number 4 of the main tent to find our seats The main tent is a half circle with a relatively small stage in the middle I was not really impressed by the setting until the music came on Darn it the surround sound system was good The lights were good too There are a few interesting parts of the show like beautiful gymnastics and some extreme in air actions but the big part of the show is a bit slow in my opinion Rali loves it but I think I have seen better If you happen to be around the Seattle area you should definitely give it a shot It is almost worth the money You can also check their website to see where they are heading next Here is a bit about the show from the site From a group of 20 street performers at its beginnings in 1984 Cirque du Soleil is now a major Quebec based organization providing high quality artistic entertainment The company has more than 4 000 employees from over 40 different countries including 1 000 artists Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to almost 90 million spectators in over 200 cities on five continents In 2009 Cirque du Soleil will present 20 shows simultaneously throughout the world The company has received such prestigious awards as the Emmy Drama Desk Bambi ACE GÃ meaux FÃ lix and Rose dâ Or de Montreux Cirque du Soleil International Headquarters are in Montreal Canada Cirque du Soleilâ s mission is to invoke the imagination provoke the senses and evoke the emotions of people around the world You might also like This umbrella would work perfectly in Seattle Coffee loving umbrella for Seattle Previous post iPhone vs Android user s income Next

  • BiofusionDesign | Have you ever tried to get a refund from Amazon.com?
    out because they are at the address I get out but nobodyâ s there Call them back turns out they went to the old address They will give me a call back in 5 minutes One hour later no call I call them and they tell me thatâ s the address they got from Amazon Nothing they can do about it I should call Amazon At this point I am pretty frustrated I call Amazon and talk to Cassandra S She apologizes it was their mistake But still they canâ t give me a refund without the item And I cannot have the treadmill picked up the same day so we have to reschedule So whatâ s it gonna be â do I want to miss another day from work or stay home one more weekend I tell them itâ s been two months and I want my money back I donâ t care how they will pick up the treadmill Not my problem anymore I get to talk to the manager Then the managerâ s manager Then the managerâ s managerâ s manager whose name is Aaron D I tell him what I told the rest â I will leave the treadmill in front of the house I live in the Seattle area so it rains pretty often but itâ s not like it can get any more broken than it already is So come pick it up whenever you want then send me my money back Doesnâ t sound like the manager cares too much about the item Heâ s OK with me just leaving it outside I will be refunded as soon as they get it in whatever condition it might be So there it is now waiting to be picked up in front of my house Itâ s been sunny the last couple of days so they might get lucky I donâ t really care either way â just want it out of my sight at this point Tuesday Feb 23 2010 Three different people from a local shipping called Ceva call me to confirm the pickup date for Wednesday between 1 and 4 pm I explain to each of them that I will leave the item at my front door They tell me it is fine as long as I provide a note with the item number order number and my signature 9 am Wednesday I leave the treadmill with the note attached to it see photo in front of my house and leave for work 1 19 pm I receive a call from Amazon and they tell me that the driver couldnâ t pick up the item because nobody was home to sign for it I tell her what happened She counters back saying that the driver didnâ t find a note see photo She sounds very upset like I am trying to blame her She asks me if I want to schedule another appointment since they canâ t come and pick it up
