Of course, Adobe!

Of course, Adobe, differs the script for sending/setting colors between Photoshop and Illustrator. It’s the same task, but hey – why actually bother and tell anyone. They will figure it out eventually after wasting hours with banging their heads against the display…

Click To Pick

Yes, there are color pickers out there for creating color schemes. Yes there are color pickers out there for iOS and Mac developers. Yes, there are color pickers out there for web developers. And yes, there are color pickers out there for storing individual color palettes.

But not a single one is perfect. Not a single one combines all those things in a usable and sophisticated way. Not a single one allows dragging images to analyze theme and to directly save the color scheme. And not a single one is iCloud (or Dropbox) enabled so that you can access your up-to-date-colors from any Mac.

…when Ollerum is asleep I’m working on an all new version of my browser. Instead of just taking the ‘old’ code and only adding a little polish I decided to start from scratch. There will also be a ‘paid’ version that offers password protection and that stores all history, bookmarks, and all the other stuff encrypted.

I’ve named that version SubRosa and you will never have to worry about forgetting to turn on the porn mode again :–)

THE TICKER update hits the Mac App Store

LogEngine Image

Last night Apple approved the latest THE TICKER update. This update features an improved I HATE EXCERPTS ™ parser, fixes a crash when a website isn’t a website but a PDF, adds the option to name the flag labels, adds support for the upcoming OS X Yosemite and I’ve improved the fonts for a better reading experience. I’ve also done lots of other boring stuff under the hood to improve the performance and the scrolling …
