Anyone Can Break Into Your iPad 2 Passcode with a Smart Cover

Anyone Can Break Into Your iPad 2 Passcode with a Smart Cover – sure they can only get access to the last app you were using when you locked it, and this bug won’t last for long, but it’s an amusing/worrying one nonetheless. Tags: iOS, iPad

Flexible Nav for jQuery

The Flexible Nav jQuery library provides navigation not unlike the sticky tab note things that you might use to annotate large piles of paper documents. Could be very useful when used in the right context. Tags: jQuery, JavaScript

Countdownjs - A simple JavaScript API for producing an accurate, intuitive description of the timespan between two Date instances.

Countdown.js does what you might think – it counts stuff down in JavaScript (or more accurately, as per the title, it is a simple JavaScript API for producing an accurate, intuitive description of the timespan between two Date instances). Tags: JavaScript

csonv.js - A tiny library to fetch relational CSV data at client-side just like JSON

csonv.js comes from the department of “possibly not useful very often, but when it is useful you’ll be glad you knew about it”. There’s still a lot of use of old data formats like CSV out there, and anything that makes it easier to transform them into something sane modern is a good thing. Scary thing is that I actually have an app I can think of right now which might have been made easier if this had been used. Tags: JavaScript

Common JavaScript mistakes and pitfalls you can avoid

If you’ve not read Douglas Crockford’s book, then you should at least read this post: Common JavaScript mistakes and pitfalls you can avoid. After having worked with JavaScript for quite some time, I remember my first time reading about some of JavaScript’s coercion and thinking “Wow, really? That could really mess people up… oh… wait”.

The IBM XWork Server sounds like a pretty good idea

If you’re an ISV working with IBM Lotus Notes/Domino, or if you’re simply trying to sell applications built on Domino technologies, then The IBM XWork server sounds like a great idea in terms of licensing. I can think back to many of my past Domino clients (because I don’t really work with it much anymore) who would have had use for this, and a couple of instances where it would have made a lot of discussions around justifying costs/an investment in Domino much easier. It’s something that could have had a lot of relevance in the New Zealand marketplace...
