Do’s and Don’ts of Video Tutorials.

As someone whom frequently watches a lot of Video tutorials from all walks of life, I often sit in front of the screen cursing at the author’s ability to waffle on in areas that are irrelevant or tap into my time. The objective of a video tutorial is to give you immediate salvation in and…

Did Microsoft copy the Adobe AIR Poster?

I often see a lot of the Adobe communities rant and rave ignorance about how Microsoft follows’ Adobe’s every move, like some how they’ve got it all figured out. vs The reality is that majority of the time, Microsoft was the first to make the move, sadly though, folks just can’t be bothered doing their…

That being said, I find value in Peter and openly respect his approach to technology as whilst he obviously prefers Flash over Silverlight, he still reminds me of the folks whom are…

Sports can be competitive. Who knew! :)

Steve just did a great post on how well we’re doing in the sporting scene, and it’s worth checking out over at the team.silverlight.net blog.   It does provide some basic common sense rebuttals to what MLB.Tv folks stated today in the CNET article. If you’ve not read it, then I’ll save you the trouble,…

How to impersonate friends and influence enemies.

I’ve never really been a fan of sys-con.com and it’s approach to content vs. advertising. If anything, it’s probably the best example of an online site carpet bombing the end user with advertising that well basically offends. They’ve now turned it up a notch, to a level that even I am absolutely amazed about –…
