Appcelerator Titanium has ALREADY responded to apples new T&Cs by sending their developers an email telling them there is no need to worry ! (Provided they keep using Appcelerator Titanium !)

We've had over 50 applications approved for the App Store over the past 3 weeks under the new terms (which every developer now needs to agree to). Not a single one has been rejected for being built on Titanium. We even updated our own test app, Snapost, after accepting the new terms.

whereas Mike Chambers thinks that

O2 The Memory Project

Your chance to get inside a piece of photo/video art ! If you are in Edinburgh this weekend (26-27 Apr 08) "pop into" this piece of art ! If not then view the O2 The Memory Project 24 hour x 360 degrees Adobe Flash animation on the web !

It's a very arty/flashy/trendy Adobe Flash presentation and it is not very obvious how to navigate through it !

Here are some tips:

  • click on a city
  • then
  • move your mouse UP and DOWN to go forwards and back in time
  • or
  • move your mouse LEFT or RIGHT to rotate through 360 degrees

Sprout widgets mashups & mini-sites

Sprout is a quick and easy way for beginner and pro users to create living content including, websites, banners, videos, music, photos, RSS feeds, calendars and more.

Sprouts are interactive and portable chunks of web content. Some people call them widgets, mashups or mini-sites but we just call them sprouts.

I wonder if they work as VOX embeds ?
