Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

In the “Apple fanbois pissing me off” department: the consensus on the iPod side of the blogosphere (which is even larger than the Mac side) is that the Zune’s screen size is irrelevant because it has exactly as many pixels as the iPod.

This is a screen for viewing video, not for surfing the web; size is more important than resolution. There are still 42-inch 480p TV sets selling for a thousand dollars. Would you argue that a 17-inch widescreen TV is just as good as 42-incher because it displays as many pixels?

I didn’t originally link Perian, because I have VLC and couldn’t care less what formats QuickTime Player can read.

But it’s true that, if you’ve got Front Row, you might be happy to be able to play AVI, FLV or DivX files. Plus, QuickTime somehow feels a bit more “right” than VLC (even though VLC’s interface has made tremendous progress in OS X integration lately).

DeskTunes [via] displays current track information on your desktop. There are lots of programs doing that, and this one is as useless as any other, but it’s prettier.

I don’t mind that it doesn’t have an icon, but I hope a later update will allow you to place the display wherever you want, because I already have stuff on my lower left corner.

Firefox flaw story may be a hoax, or a joke, or whatever. In any case, I wasn’t off-base when I wrote that it sounded like a parody of the Apple/SecureWorks thing.

Ooh, Google Groups has changed. And it’s blue! And it’s almost pretty!
