AngularJS, Filters and $index

Posted by & filed under , .

I came across an issue with AngularJS in one of the projects I worked on which I thought was worth signalling. It all stems back from the usage of $index inside a ng-repeat group — in the context of using a filter in ng-repeat, and as such it took us a bit to identify the […]

The Problem with the C-level Exec Who’s Leaving

Posted by & filed under , , .

There has been recently increased attention in the media for Uber, after the blog post from Susan Fowler about her terrible (probably a mild term here, I agree) experience while at Uber — and even more so as of today their SVP of engineering stepping down after sexual harassment allegations during his previous job at […]

First release of this project on Github is now out there. And as promised in my “pilot” post of this series, this post will walk you through what went into this release and why. The project itself as you recall is available on Github in this repository: https://github.com/liviutudor/PixelServer. The version for this release is pixelserver-1.0.0 […]

TripIt

Of TripIt And Their Business Model

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is somewhere in between a question and an idea for TripIt — definitely not a moan! as I am rather enjoying the FREE service they are providing to me right now 🙂 Truth being told, if they read this and they decide to go with my idea, I guess I’ll get a lot of […]

Samsung Galaxy Gear Watch — Issues with Gear Manager App

Posted by & filed under , , .

I finally got myself one of those smart watches, and since I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone and quite pleased with the Samsung products and the way they integrate, I went for the Samsung Galaxy Gear Watch. I’m not going to go on about where can you buy and how much, a simple search […]

HowAboutWe Firefox Add-on

Posted by & filed under , , , .

Ok, so you might have seen the previous howaboutwe / Twitter project I spawned off the other day and blogged about here — and I thought since I’m not actively using howaboutwe anymore, but still found myself with a paid membership for a few more weeks, how about I (ahem! :D) play a bit more […]

Implications of Blocking 3rd Party Cookies?

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

Now that I wrote the previous post about blocking 3rd party cookies and the (famous) Firefox release which triggered my reaction, I keep thinking about where is the online world going from here. I know a few groups in the industry are working on various approaches but I’m constantly being followed by one idea which […]

Social Media Experiment

Posted by & filed under , , , .

OK so this is just a tiny experiment I’m trying to conduct — to prove how (ahem!) penetrative this social media is — so just retweet/re-facebook / whatever this and let’s see if it reaches any of the 2 girls in the photos and if it does, hopefully they get back to me. I’m not […]

ShareThis chicklets customized so they look similar

Make ShareThis “Chicklets” Look All the Same

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve written before on my blog about ShareThis — I do love their WordPress plugin and their analytics provide some interesting insights into my blog traffic. There is however a niggly little thing which has been bugging me for a while — and it’s all to do with the way their “chicklets” look. (If you’re […]

What Most Schools Don’t Teach…

Posted by & filed under , , .

If you work in IT, you have probably by now have seen the famous video on YouTube labelled “What most schools don’t teach” — where Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and a few other prominent figures are talking about how easy it is to program, and how only 10% of the USA schools teach programming. It […]

java code

Of Java and Assembler

Posted by & filed under , , .

The title would no doubt puzzle quite a few of you — after all I’m putting in the same sentence a low-level, processor-specific language (for no better term for “assembler” — I know, I know, I know, “it’s not really a language”, right?) with a rather high-level, even platform-independent language like Java. So, right away […]

Updates Services / WordPress

Posted by & filed under , , , .

OK so for a while I’ve been keeping an eye on who and what and how indexes my blog, trying, like all the other bloggers out there to get a bit more “traction” (I looooove Silicon Valley slang 😉 ) for my blog. Part of this, is not just relying on the standard Google or […]

Advertising or Information?

Posted by & filed under , , , , .

This goes out to all you ad skeptics out there who bang on about how useless the internet advertising is and how it should be banned / destroyed / 101’d etc: it is sad that not often advertising is delivered as a complement to the content being viewed, and as such it doesn’t come across […]
