Okay, so we already had a look at both services on the desktop. It's now time to get to the iPhone for a mobile app comparison. Why the iPhone? Because on Android, you cannot use iTunes Match. It's that simple. On the Apple's front, the default music app ...

My iTunes Match subscriptions isn't working anymore (some tech issue that will be fixed soon I hope) so I got to test Google Play Music for a couple of weeks. That's great! In this first post, I will compare both services on the desktop. There is a ...

So, I'm not going to write the umpteenth review of Limbo, the game by PlayDead. There are plenty already. But one thing bothers me about this game. Well, it's great. Not in the game itself but the mise-en-scène, the universe, ambiance. The graphics are ...

There are not a lot of paradises on this corner of the earth, but there's one sure hell: charsets with MySQL. MySQL has the peculiar idea of defaulting everything to latin1. Everything. Everything should be utf-8 of course, just because it fucking works ...

Ruzzle is a game on iPhone and Android involving small puzzles (4x4 grid of letters) and the ability of the player to find words in the grid. Of course, as soon as I saw this, I wrote a small program to cheat at it. Here is the cheat program. Of course ...

I was reading in the news the birth of www.qwant.com, a new French search engine. So I said to myself "ok, let's go and have a look." I was in my bath with my iPhone. First impression isn't very good since the website doesn't have a mobile template so you ...

We went with my wife and kids to see the Harry Potter studios in the UK. I have to admit that we all were fans of the books and movies, but I wasn't prepared to what went on over here. Being there, immersed in Harry Potter's universe as we had seen for so ...

Well, I changed jobs a (very) little while ago and with a new job comes a new keyboard. And with this new keyboard, invariably, comes a new CAPS LOCK key. So I usually wait a few weeks, not to come out too weird up front, and then I pop out the CAPS ...

When it's time to update my resume, I always wonder if I should stick with the boring headings and bullet points. And now, I just stumbled on this website: http://www.1stwebdes...

From a developer's perspective, a web application (called a website back in the days) is made of two parts: The server side code and the client side code. Writing a program for a web browser is something different than writing for a server. Most of the ...

So, they made this new interface. It was once called Metro, but we now are instructed to not call it that way. That's all good. But how do we call it then? The problem is I want to blog about it. So what? Let's call it Metro. The hell with it. So, now ...

I'm going to rephrase a post I made on Slashdot in Jan 2012. It is about the digital medium in the internet era and how the information economy (books, movies, music) will be affected by it. Make no mistake here, I'm not taking sides, I am just trying to ...

Markus Jakobsson has a nice column on wired.com about passwords, what to do and what not to do. While he makes a nice point in security vs practicality (and the bad password 'evaluation' of most sites), I think he basically gives flawed advices. His ...

I recently upgraded my iPhone 4S with iOS6. A few novelties made the change a nice one, but no clear revolution. Of course the "Maps" app did undergo a major overhaul but that's for another entry. But there's something else new that I'd like to talk ...

You've got a website. Good for you. There is a good case to be made for online advertising. And there is an equally compelling case to be made against. Whether or not you should include advertisement to your website is out of the scope of this little ...

The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change ...
