Same spot, a couple weeks apart. The yellow one's traveled with me for a while. The other one's the kind I rarely keep.

An Alternate Control Schema for Full Screen Cover Flow

Fullscreen Cover Flow Controls 2

Speaking of weirdness, and the bits and bobs of UI design... Wouldn't the new full screen Cover Flow look better, work better and be more consistent if the controls were like this?

Blogger Gabriel thought:

Why not just have every letter of the alphabet appear on the top of the controls, instead of a slider? Just a thought.

WTF?

WTF?

This anti-aliasing redraw bug has existed since the day they launched Cover Flow. Now it's even more obvious thanks to full screen. Why haven't they fixed it in any of the four updates they've pushed since then? What's the nature of the problem?

I think they're already building resolution independence into iTunes--that we're already seeing code that "works" on Tiger, but sings on Leopard. If Apple knew that all this fuzzy fugliness would disappear in a couple months when we upgrade, would they waste the time fixing it now? Nope.

Cover Flow Status

Timeliness isn't an ability of mine right now. So I let some news items pile up.

Fullscreen Cover Flow in iTunes

March 5th, Apple released iTunes 7.1. It now features a full screen Cover Flow mode. This is something that has been available in CoverFlow RC1.2 all along. Something I've been predicting for a while. Something that's weird in some ways. But ultimately, wonderful to see in people's hands.

Cover Flow Status - HTPC

Something the HTPC people just straight up needed.

Cover Flow Status - Arcade Jukebox

Something even goofy HTPC people needed.

Cover Flow Status - Video Flow - Small

Capspex's put together a Cover Flow interface that browses the most viewed videos on YouTube using ActionScript and Flash.

Cover Flow Status - WebsiteFlowParts

Netapeta's made a couple of web applets that generate images in the Cover Flow style. WebsiteFlowParts allows you to skew'n'reflect one image at a time, so you have the parts to build-your-own. WebsiteFlow allows you to do the same, except using URLs as the source instead of images.

I've found her before. In fact, she might have been the first. The one on the left. The one with the long straps. That placid, contented expression. That buoyancy. That peace. Both long and short were on the one I nicked this time coming back from Canada. A United 757. I guess we could have had either type of cushion. We had to be prepared.

My Sentiment Exactly

My Sentiment Exactly

"Something about the sheer immensity of sight, of seeing so much so that you can't see anything at all, temporarily rescues Koh's work from the burn-out and ersatz mysticism that dogs his work." - Jerry Saltz

I'm a hater, but I like the light.

Neave Strobe

My still buzzes. But it's nothing next to Neave Strobe, from which it comes--a Flash animation designed to fuck with how you see.

Follow his instructions. When you look away, the walls will crawl the way they do when you're coming up on E or shrooms or acid. Provisions: mute it immediately, and avoid if seizure or migraine-prone.

I love it, but it nearly knocked Heather to the floor. She accused me of trying to kill her, and handed the laptop back.

The wing sauce got out of control, throwing oil everywhere. After cool, I offset the splatter from stovetop to cardstock making a print only visible when backlit. Luckily our island is ex-printing plant.

Loft Kit

The first weekend of the month the U-Hauls arrive. The second, these flat-bed trucks. Each carrying only what you need to build a basic structure. How many have come and gone in the eighty lofts that make this building? Hundreds.

Someone wrote to steer me toward one of the nicer Flash implementations of the fliptych I've seen. Peep Eepmon. I really like that the loading animation (time normally wasted) is used to give a quick, image-only interface tutorial.

It's probably fake, and you've probably seen it (I've been slow to post), but worth noting nonetheless.
