Preparate, jogo bonito. Llega el juego guapo. Nos vemos en el Mundial en un par de anos. Brasil y Argentina tiemblan. En Europa no hay rival.

Maps and mobile phones

This cool video is the winner of the S60 video contest. It perfectly shows some of the great possibilities of maps applications in mobile phones. A video is much better than a googolplex words so there you have it.

Symbian Foundation

The greatest mobile manufacturers join forces in order to make Symbian a big open platform and their instrument will be Symbian Foundation. It is great that Symbian becomes an open development platform (please start killing Symbian Signed!) but the only idea of a single Symbian flavour is good enough news. You can read it with more detail in this Nokia Show Press Release and I got to these URI from a post in Barrapunto.

To the semifinals!

Mediamarkt Spain offered to pay back the 25% of the price of all their HD-enabled TV sets sold in the last weeks if Spain reached the semifinals of the Euro 2008. Time to pay!

Firefox 3 already out :-)

After having installed Firefox 3 some days in advance to the Download Day in a Ubuntu machine, now it is time to do it on Windows. The updater available in Firefox itself reports a connection timeout when trying to check whether there is a new version available.

Looks like the Guinness world record is on its way :-)

Firefox 3 already out?

I've just installed Ubuntu 8.04 in a machine. It had Firefox 3 beta 5 installed and 160 packages to update. After the update I find that... I have Firefox 3 installed. Wasn't Firefox Day on June 17th? Are Ubuntu users special to Firefox and thus gifted with the browser in advance? O:-)

Here comes the Dragonfly!

Opera 9.5 is out and it comes with a set of developer tools called Dragonfly. So far, web developers have browser extensions like Firefox's Web Developer, Internet Explorer's Developer Toolbar or Safari's integrated web developer tools.

The ability of debugging Javascript is very important in web browsers in order to determine the different JS support, APIs on top of it or implementation deficiencies.

The developers of Opera are doing a great job and it is still one of the fastest desktop browsers and the least memory consumer.

But... some of the typical Web 2.0 sites show some problems. I think this is the last post I'll do on blogger using Opera 9.5, because CTRL+SHIFT+arrow keys save a draft of the current post instead of select text. Pretty uncomfortable as it changes the behaviour of post edition in Blogger
