Silent Monks Singing Halleluia

Seen this before, but worth remembering every year.

With the launch of the Mac App Store and my recent purchase of an iPhone, I’ve been installing a number of apps recently. Some are worthy of sharing with other Mac/iPhone users.


First up: SizeUp.

Before purchasing SizeUp I was using this companies earlier free version called 2Up. 2Up allowed you, with a keyboard shortcut, to move a window to the left or right half of the screen (yes, I know Windows 7 allows you to do that with the mouse). With a 27” monitor and often a lot of things going on, I find that my screen real estate can become fairly messy. 2Up helped reduce the clutter.

SizeUp does a better job. For one thing, you can partition the screen rather than 50-50. So, I have the right side 60% and the left side 40%. You can also move windows to one of the four quadrants, again using partitioning – I have the top as 40% and the bottom as 60%.

With a couple of keystrokes I can move mail to one quarter, whatever I’m watching on QuickTime to another, Firefox to another and the document I’m working on to another.

SizeUp is USD$13 (~ AUD$12.08) for Mac OS 10.5 (Leopard) or later. There is a Demo version available.

HTML5 For Web Designers

On holidays, and I just finished reading HTML5 For Web Designers by Jeremy Keith.

If you’re a web designer, even a hobbyist, this is a fantastic book which summarises what HTML5 means for designing on the web. For me, it has pulled together and clarified a lot of bits and pieces I had seen in other articles around the web.
