In its pre-built state, it's a PowerPC-only library, and I was recently reminded of this when I viewed a few hundred pictures on my Xbox 360 and then returned to my Mac to see a few hundred instances of Software Update […]

Rivet 2.2.4 is now available. Originally the plan was to release Rivet 2.2.2, but a few problems necessitated a few more updates. This update is free and it fixes the Snow Leopard issue where a thumbnail was not always generated. It also fixes the issue with streaming MP4 video files to the PS3. They should […]

Question for the Rails developers out there… Suppose you have a video file (a .mov or .mp4 or .m4v or whatever) and you're going to use JWPlayer or another flash-based application to "play" the video on a user's browser, but you want to obfuscate and hide the actual location of the video so that the […]

Scorecard 2.0 for the iPhone is finally available. The approval process for iPhone apps seems to have been delayed - badly - due to WWDC, so we're glad it's finally approved. After all, we shipped the desktop app some time ago. Don't believe the reviews, either (currently 2 of 5 stars). The app works beautifully, […]
