Take Photo Booth Styled Images — PictureBooth

October 8, 2011 Comments off

I just finished coding this simple utility. What it does is take photo booth style images straight from your iSight. This app was made solely out of my frustration in that the layout of snapped photos in Photo Booth© is in a square.


Whereas, it should have at least an option to look like a strip of images. After countless nights of trying to figure out how to make Photo Booth© do it, I gave up and I just made my own.

For now it only has the basic function that I need. And that is to take the pictures and output it into a strip style. If I get motivated I might add more features to it at a later date but for now, I’m fine with it as it is.

If you want to download the app, it requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later. Visit the app’s page to download it.

A sad day for the tech world. Steve Jobs dies.

October 6, 2011 Comments off

As most of the internet knows, Steve Jobs, the founder and former CEO of Apple has died at the age of 56. My local Apple group has temporarily closed all other discussion forums to pay respect for the man’s death. Even Bill Gates extended his own share of words for his old “rival” in the computing industry.

Bill’s statement goes:

I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.

Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.

The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. 

For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor.  I will miss Steve immensely.

Steve Jobs was a college dropout. Who would have thought that someone who started as such would end up being a very very successful man. The way Steve differs from others is that he has this certain charisma to get people hooked into what he makes. He creates this “excitement” whenever Apple unveils a new iProduct or if people aren’t hooked on the first try the follow up is mostly the one that would do it. For example, take the iPad. It was a smirked at device because it used to be called a “useless device”. Look at it now. It’s one of the must-have devices of 2011. And who can forget the macs? With their innovative MagSafe power adapters, you don’t have to worry much about people tripping over your wire and accidentally taking your laptop along and smashing it to the ground.

On the phone end of the industry, he also made his mark with the iPhone. As of now, almost all of Americans own a smart phone. As far as I know, had it not for iPhone did Google step up to the game and created Android. Steve Jobs pushes innovation and forces outdated companies to keep up.

Steve was a legend and he will surely be remembered for future generations to come as the man who made technology the way it is now. Rest in peace Steve and you will surely be missed. :(

Facebook Will Require SSL by October First

September 24, 2011 Comments off
This morning,  I checked to see my updates on Facebook. A message greeted me with the following.

It seems Facebook will be requiring developers to use SSL on their apps. Obviously there’s a pro and a con to this. The pro is that it will of course, enhance security between the user and the Facebook application. Unfortunately, SSL isn’t a free thing so the con will be the fact that small developers who can’t afford to maintain an SSL will have to find a way to provide one. This new requirement will take effect by October 1, 2011. Below is a screenshot from GoDaddy’s SSL Certificates.

Coming Soon Image

September 23, 2011 Comments off
I stumbled across this image awhile ago while looking for a placeholder for a website I’m designing. I’m not entirely sure if this image is copyrighted or not but when I did a Google Image search for it, it seems that a lot of websites are already using it. If ever you hold a copyright on this image and you stumbled upon this post of mine, contact me so that I can delete it from my blog. The image is down below.

Reviving my blog…

September 22, 2011 Comments off

So I’ve decided I’ve had enough rest and that it’s time to revive my blog. My last post was September 10th, 2011 which was an entry to my project A.S.O.M.D. (or A Snapshot of My Day). Apparently I wasn’t able to keep on posting everyday and so I’ve decided that if I’m to go and do daily photo snap uploads, I might as well separate it from this blog to keep the quality of the posts here up to par. And that’s exactly what I did so starting now, the old A.S.O.M.D. link on the navigation bar has been renamed to Everyday. So A Snapshot of My Day will now also be known as Everyday Inscriptions.

The separate photoblog can be found on http://everyday.shedosurashu.com/. I also set up a Tumblr counterpart for Everyday which can be found at http://asnapshotofmyday.tumblr.com/.

I’m really sorry if I haven’t been able to post good content lately. I have been doing a lot of side projects that sucks my time off from actually doing reviews on websites / software or insights on the latest tech news. Of course I can’t leave my A.S.O.M.D. (A Snapshot of My Day) project to stop so I’m still continuing it every day. I’m determined to not miss a single day when posting my daily snapshots.

Other than that, I’d like to say sorry again if I haven’t already. I hope to get back to the norm as soon as possible. :)
