Reviews and Book

I just finished writing 5 reviews in 24 hours. Four for TuxTops.com and the Nokia E61 review for OSNews.com. Now I am free from such responsibilities and I can start writing the booklet on “mobile web design” this coming Monday. I will make it quick and to the point (especially as O’Reilly hasn’t reply to my request for publication), so I have it ready within this month. I think I will only write it in HTML and then I’ll find a converter to export a PDF out of it too. I don’t think I will take the time to also export it in DOC and ODF. Not sure yet. Let me know about the format(s) you prefer.

Mugshot Part 2

Hehe… I watched Havoc’s video from Red Hat Summit’s keynote (you-you sexy animal) where he failed to explain what the hell Mugshot really is. If Mugshot has to be “experienced” before “understood”, then it’s already dead in the water. Also, after two long blog posts from Havoc this past week where he again failed to truly explain what CheapShot does in simple terms –oops, I meant Mugshot–, Dave Camp asks him to “describe mugshot using just three verbs”. I guess the right description would be something like this: “screw around” “get bugged by popups” “uninstall”

Sorry guys, I just can’t appreciate this application. Maybe I would if I was 16. I indeed feel bad to critisize the app so harshly, but I gotta write what I truly think about it. To me, Mugshot to Red Hat is what BoB was to Microsoft.
