    A huge thank you to @chrismiles for his work on Skala Color. Amazing. You rock!

      For those wondering, this is the page with the SVG, JPEG, GIF and PNGs stacked. It was the best way, I promise! http://bjango.com/mac/istatmenus/

            @isaiah I’m not yet at the point where I *want* help. I might be soon though.
            marc
              @misterpoppet Yep. We’re launching a new site soon. The page in question is for iStat Menus.

                Matias Duarte talks to Josh Topolsky about Android design. Terrible shirt, but good conversation. https://vimeo.com/91688685

                  Achievement unlocked: Stacked an SVG (best text scaling), a JPEG (best file size), a PNG (I needed transparency) and a GIF (tiny bit of anim) in a single web page header.

                    @failgunner I completely agree with all of that. Would be nice for music to not be destroyed by mastering for radio / slammed by severe compression and limiting.

                      @danielpunkass @mrgan 2014: Thanks to great frameworks, it’s never been so easy to write amazing software. Thanks to restrictive platform policies, it’s never been so difficult to write amazing software.

                        @danielpunkass @mrgan It’s an exciting time for software and I understand Apple’s decisions for the App Store and sandboxing. I just hope we end up with a scenario where larger professional software can exist without crazy hacks and policy work arounds.

                          Avoiding work by writing a long message to the @atpfm crew about vinyl vs CD vs digital audio.

                            @danielpunkass That’s a great solution, but it feels like a stop-gap until Apple disallow it.

                              Being able to provide fast fixes without triggering an update for all users is the best thing in the world, and sorely missed on App Stores.

                                @pgib Haha. Great GIF! I haven’t forgotten about making an example SVG+HTML doc... Just need a few spare moments to do so.
                                marc
                                  @pgib I’ll try to get an example onto Codepen soon.

                                    @spacekatgal If I’m being cynical, I’d say it is in Apple’s best interests to keep developers small and hungry. They probably don’t want to help create another Microsoft or Adobe. +@remus

                                      @spacekatgal I completely agree. It may not be Apple’s fault, but they control many levers that could fix it. It just doesn’t seem like they want or intend to. +@remus
