The Mojave Experiment… It Doesn’t Really Suck That Much

For those that haven’t switched to a Mac yet here are some stats that might wow you from the Mojave Experiment website:

  • Vista is 60% less likely to get infected by Malware than SP2… Mac is about 0% likely
  • Windows Vista is compatible with 200 Security programs… I don’t need a single one… I have a mac
  • 37% of vista users say they are “somewhat likely” to recommend it to others
  • 46% of current Windows users said they are somewhat satisfied with Vista

For some reason I’m not really itching to give Vista another look.

Being Kind to Widows and Orphans

No, this is not one of those charity posts.
It’s all about my favourite plugin. Imagine a plugin that could improve
the typography of your page with no complicated setup. Controlling type
online can at times be difficult. However, things have just gotten a
whole lot easier with the release of the Typogrify plugin.

Rebranding of FOWA

Ryan Nichols gives an overview of their rebranding of FOWA (Future of Web Apps). The breathless result was not by accident, but was very process driven. Great work.
