Tab interaction in FMRadio.

I've got to say that I like the tab interaction of the browser in FMRadio much better than safari, which i use on the mac. With safari, say i'm on my far left tab, my tabstrip is full, and want to open a link in a new window. So the link opens in a new tab that's tucked in the more menu. So now it's a big pain to switch back and forth between those 2 windows. Where as in the tab interaction of FMRadio, the new tab is opened immediately to the right of the tab from which it was launched. They figure you want to look at things in proximity to where you launched them. Now you end up with an ad hoc ordering of tabs, but it means less mouse movement and better sense making for me. Alan says there's an article somewhere about why people think the Mozilla tab interaction is best. I'll have to find that.

I know there's some deeper issues here such as the tab sets you get in safari and mozilla, but that's a different post.

GameCube 'may die out'. Nintendo must find a strategy to stop its GameCube dying out, an analyst warns, after the games maker reports falling profits. [BBC News | Technology | UK Edition]

One thing that I really like about blogs is that I can point to predictions that I have made months/years later and say "see I predicted that".   The most recent illustration of this is when I accuratly predicted that the Spurs would beat the Lakers in 6 days.

I would also like to reiterate my long standing prediction that this is the last generation that Nintendo will be making consoles.  By 2005 they will become strictly a software company like Sega.

MicroDoc reviews SocialDynamX FM Radio Station. "I can safely leave a partially finished blog and go see a news item, or surf to a site in the browser without the fear of losing my partly completed log. This is one of the best feelings I have had since beginning to use FMRS." [Scripting News]

Pour George Bush, "la guerre contre le terrorisme" continue [Le Monde : International]

I havn't read this article yet.  However, I wanted to point out something that I find increadibly interesting.  The french media is still putting " " around the phrase "la guerre contre le terrorisme"(the war on terror). After 9-11 there was no debate here that we were at war.  However, in France there was much debate on whether the US was overreacting by calling it a war.  Well, almost 2 years later the french are still debating that point.  Meanwhile we are in the thick of battle.

Its creators say it's the first flexible computer screen of its kind. [Wired News]

Microsoft sets Xbox Live pricing [GameSpot: XBOX]

There was concern that microsoft was going to charge $10 a month for a renewal of xbox live.  I think that 49.99 for a year is about right.  They are killing ps2 and gamecube in the online arena.  It is the first time that I have ever seen microsoft really innovate.  They really stepped out on a limb with Xbox live and produced something that had never been tried before.  They have succeeded well and I think it will help them in there long term battle against Sony.

Blogger: Catch Me If You Can. A mysterious new weblog alleges to be the online diary of a rich heiress who's running from her powerful family to avoid an arranged marriage. The Flight Risk journal is fishy in all kinds of ways, but it's also a good read. By Leander Kahney. [Wired News]

I also want to take this time to predict that the San Antonio Spurs are going to beat the Lakers in the NBA quarter finals.  My prediction is 6 games but I would not be suprised if they did it in 5.

La guerre en Irak a de nouveau illustré l'écart technologique croissant entre les Quinze et l'Amérique [Le Monde : International]

"The war in Irak, is another example of the technological growth gap between europe and the US"

This is an interesting article from Le Monde.  It is another example of what I have long considered to be the core of the rift between europe and the US.  Europe fears the US's political and economic dominance.  This article laments Europe's lack of vision when it comes to R&D for new technology and the fact that European scientists are coming to America en masse.  Use my Progresso is you need translation help with this article.
