What third-party applications has Apple made obsolete?

long list of H3J links

One thing we have to mention in the discussion is the DOM.  It’s the element that most people don’t understand, or leave out of a discussion of using H3J (HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript). This is the book that I learned about the DOM from.

The HTML5 Family

My favorite open source HTML5 video player

An interesting presentation on HTML Video

In case you haven’t seen it this is the coolest Flash player alternative to the HTML5 stuff.

These guys also make an add-on to jQuery.

Grid Layout and designs:
grids css standards and tomfoolery
Blueprint
960gs
Grids

Google open web standards support.

iPhone specific interface stuff:

Can your browser handle the code?
This site has some great CSS3 stuff.

a must see CSS3 Canvas Animation.

Controlling CSS3 animation:

More CSS3 fun.

Can’t forget Smashing Magazine

Cheat Sheets:
HTML5
HTML5 Beginners Cheat Sheet
CSS3:
CSS2.1 (This is the first one that I really liked for CSS)
JavaScript
jQuery 1.2 and PDF Cheat Sheet.
JavaScrip DOM

And to end it all there’s W3Schools which is one of the best learning resources I think for getting into this stuff.

hello from Maker Faire

I’m sitting in the “press room” which really should be called the “press lobby” because it’s just a tabled off section of one of the halls. Maker Faire is a bustling place with lots to see. but the best part so far is being able to ask questions because it’s the builder that is behind the stand. lots of the tech being shown is open source maybe because there is no commercial road for the project. or because it really needs the help of lots of other people. it’s sad that so many of these things will never get the attention it deserves.

cool stuff so far…
an Apple //e that displays “tweets”. it displays the TXT and a raster of the Avatar.
el Wire sharks on remote control cars that. when they drirve around in the dark they look like sharks.
really TALL bike cars.
R2-D2 times 9
every single DIY 3D printer.
nifty buttons and stickers

what’s not so cool so far
the printed map that you get when you walk in doesn’t have a complete schedule of talks.
no map of the exhibit area.

thanks HP for the use of this keyboard. I like it but I don’t like the track pad buttons.
