Debugging your iPhone

Brilliant the Joe Hewitt's work that has been developed now that teachie guys are playing with the 'future', their iPhones. The Firebug he is talking about has being tried on Mac OS X, but it should work on Windows or Linux, says Joe. I have only tested the console in Firefox, but it should work in other browsers, he continues.

The instruccions for using Firebug for iPhone, are detailed:

1. Download and unzip it somewhere, anywhere on your computer.
2. Make sure you have Python installed - if you are on a Mac, it is already there, if you are on Windows, download it here
3. Open your terminal and cd to the ibug directory that you just unzipped
4. Run python launch - it will start the web server and open the console in your browser. If you don't want to open the console, remove the launch argument.
5. Copy the snippet of HTML that you see in the console and paste it into the head of any HTML pages you want to debug on your iPhone
6. That's it! console.log() calls on the phone will now show up in your browser, and you can use the command line to enter JavaScript commands that execute on the phone. To stop the server, just hit Ctrl-C.

Wanto to give it a try?

Commited to a Water Bottle?

Want to do something help stop the climate crisis? Stop buying bottled water. Last year Americans spent $15 billion "for a product we have always gotten, and can still get, for free in hour homes. Consumption of bottled water is clogging our landfills and contrary to popular advertising, the great majority of bottled water is just filtered tap water (Aquafina and Dasani, for example). Only 12% of all plastic bottles are recycled in the United States... each day in the US more than 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away. That's a lot of waste and just think of the energy used to create those plastic water bottles!

Time Wasting Habits of Bloggers

I think it deserves to give credit Quick Online Tips for work out on this ten list. Are you wasting time while try to catch up with everything you've found in the Internet? Think twice from now on:

1. Unsubscribe from common or unnecessary feeds.
2. Leave the Template Alone, you don't need to change it day by day.
3. Test Ads Longer, at least one week.
4. Beyond Statistics. No more than once a day.
5. Turn IM Offline, stay connected only when needed.
6. Email twice a day, you are not in the Costumer Service desk.
7. Forget Akismet Spam Comments.
8. Turn Off Adsense Notifier.
9. Reduce Keyword Alerts.
10. Stop Thinking. Start blogging.

Is there any particular way you personally think you've been wasting time while blogging? Why you don't share it and make blogging more effective and efficient.

Picasa Mobile

Happy July 4th, for all those living in America. Today is the National Day for all U.S. people.

Google has launched the first version of the photo software for mobile devices. Like the desktop version, it conveniently groups together all your images into easily browsing groups. You can also click ‘My Favorites’ from the main screen to connect to the Internet and see the latest photo albums that your contacts have posted to Picasa Web Albums, and leave comments. I am not a Picasa user yet, but I am feeling like trying it now.

Google says there’s no messing around with resizing either - all images are automatically re-sized for your device’s screen so that they download quickly. There’s also a built-in search that lets you retrieve any photo you’ve posted online, find photos posted by your friends or simply just have fun exploring other people’s photos. Note that you’ll need a phone with a web browser and WAP plan to access the service. The convenient blogging function that allows to those using Blogger to post photos directly from their phone is one of the interesting options. The mapping function it offers allows you to link photos to locations. It also might be another important feature.

What do you think?

Pownce or Twitter

All depends of how you're going to use them. As for me I guess I will stick to Twitter. Why? Very simple has more time in the market and the socialnetwork that has been built is enormous. I haven't play enough with Pownce (I also have invitations if you want to give it a try, thanks Luis) but what I miss a lot is the not integration with SMS which to me is very important because you can publish on the go!

I also believe that Twitter is working already undertable to implement the thigs they don't have so far and compete with the new kiddo. I don't think they can afford to lose such a great traffic. What I do like from Pownce is the chances you have to create groups and the posibilities of upload and tranfers files, which is a plus!

But as the iPhone, let's see what happens in the days to come, maybe I am wrong but only users can decide what's the best for them. For more about this post, please go and chech Kevin vs. Evan.
