Scott Patt: Bigger. Smaller. Funnier.

I’m happy to have recently discovered this new project by Scott Patt, an artist whose inspirations—”the folk art of his youth and post pop consumerism with its primary colors and promises of a healthier tomorrow”—are certainly evident in his current work.

His ongoing project Bigger. Smaller. Funnier is a “year long visual record of things seen, objects found, notions noted and ironies observed.” So far he has completed 43 piece of work, all of which are released as prints in a limited edition of 100.

Sony makes its best mirrorless camera faster, better, and smaller with the A6000

Sony’s in the midst of a reinvention of its camera lineup, and up next is one of the best mirrorless cameras on the market: the NEX-6 is being discontinued in favor of the new Alpha A6000. It’s the latest in Sony’s efforts to kill off its NEX line and organize everything under its Alpha brand, but the A6000 also represents a meaningful upgrade for the camera. It’s not retro-cool, or even especially handsome, but it continues Sony’s remarkable trend of shoving high-end hardware into smaller and smaller bodies. The A6000 has a 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor that Sony assures me is different from the 24.3-megapixel APS-C sensor on Sony’s NEX-7, along with the latest Bionz X processor (the same one in the A7 and A7R).

Improving on the best of…

Phil Schiller in Samsung retrial: making a smaller iPad ‘wasn’t about the competition’

In front of a courtroom jury this morning, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller claimed that Samsung’s patent infringement has weakened “the view that the world has for Apple.” By copying the company’s marquee iPhone and iPad products, Samsung has effectively diluted Apple’s brand, Schiller argued. That’s made it difficult for Cupertino’s products to stand out, in turn leading consumers to “question our innovation and design skills in a way that people never used to,” Schiller said. “As this [infringement] has been occurring, it’s harder for us to get new customers and bring them into our ecosystem.” Schiller recalled the first time he saw a Galaxy smartphone, saying, “It looked exactly like the iPhone, so much so that people might…

GoPro debuts smaller, more wearable cameras with improved optics

GoPro has refreshed its line of wearable, mountable cameras, making them smaller, lighter, and generally improving their specs across the board. The new Hero3+ series consists of a trio of cameras, all three of which are smaller than the outgoing Hero3 cameras. The Hero3+ Black Edition is the company’s new flagship. Priced at $ 399, it features reworked optics, a new 16:9 SuperView mode, and faster wireless connection.

GoPro also claims improved low-light performance with the Black Edition thanks to a new feature that automatically adjusts the frame rate while you film. It’s 20 percent smaller than the Hero3 Black Edition, and battery life — an important spec given the camera’s use-case — is said to be improved by up to 30 percent….

Samsung ships twice as many smartphones as Apple, but smaller brands chipping away at lead: IDC

20130314-tss_008_vs_phonecameras_still_large

As the smartphone market continues to grow, smaller companies are continuing to gain on the industry’s biggest manufacturers. That’s the message from research firm IDC, whose latest shipment estimates show a measurable market share drop of 1.8 percentage points for Samsung and 2.5 for Apple, whose respective smartphone market shares now sit at 30.4 and 13.1 percent, respectivey. For the first time, that means that Samsung is now shipping more than twice as many smartphones as its closest rival, with 72.4 million units to Apple’s 31.2.

Despite the share drop from the two market leaders, the whole smartphone industry grew by over 50 percent from a year ago, says IDC. The biggest recipients were LG and Lenovo; both companies’…

jQuery 2.0 Has Just Been Released – Smaller, Faster and Better Than Ever


Yes, that’s right folks. jQuery 2.0 was released earlier today and the new version is now smaller, faster and better than ever.

What changes have been made? Well, for a start, jQuery 2.0 no longer supports older versions of Internet Explorer (versions 6, 7 and 8). Plus, if you are running the newer versions such as IE 9 or 10 in Compatibility Mode, you may experience issues with jQuery 2.0.

jQuery 2.0 Has been released

Now that jQuery has decided to bid adieu to patches for old IE versions, the final product is much smaller than the previous version — as much as 19% smaller compared to version 1.0. Also, the jQuery team has plans for targeting older Android and WebKit browsers to further improve size and performance.

jQuery 1.8 had introduced custom builds for smaller files and version 2.0 has further refined and improved this feature. You can now exclude combinations of 12 different modules to create a custom version that is even smaller. And, jQuery 2.0 is now API-compatible with 1.9.

Future plans for jQuery include the release of a patch version 1.10 in the coming few months to accommodate bug fixes and transition/migration issues. Also, just in case you are worrying about older versions of IE and intend to stick with jQuery 1.x for some more time before migrating: the jQuery team has opted to support versions 1.x for websites that need it.

Due to all of the changes, jQuery recommend that use the jQuery Migrate plugin and read the jQuery 1.9 Upgrade Guide if you are upgrading from any version pre 1.9.

jQuery 2.0 will be available soon on the Google and Microsoft CDNs, in the meantime you can grab the unminified testing version here and the minified production version here.

New iPhone USB cable with smaller dock connector allegedly leaks

iphone dock connector USB cable (veister)

It’s almost a given by now that the next iPhone will feature a redesigned, smaller dock connector; we’ve heard the rumor for quite some time, and have seen alleged handset cases show up with the compact port. Now a photo circulated on Twitter by Jack Yao of Chinese accessory vendor Veister appears to show an example of a cable that’ll use that port. There’s little to distinguish it from an official Apple product, but it could also be a third-party replacement. If that’s the case, though, Veister doesn’t seem to be selling it.

The cable has FTC markings and what looks like a scannable QR code on the standard USB end. The smaller dock connector seems to line up with earlier reports and photos of a double-sided plug with 9 pins on each side,…
