Rest in Peace Robin Williams. One of the most unique, talented comedians of our time.
Here’s the official jQuery blog post stating why you shouldn’t be using jquery.latest.js on your site(s).
This is a fascinating read regarding the discovery of Sonic 2′s unfinished level(s) and how this writer shared it with the game’s creator.
I enjoy the thorough writing on MacStories. Check out Federico Viticci’s post on his Launch Center Pro setup. I’ve been meaning to start using Launch Center Pro for awhile now, but I still haven’t gotten around to it.
Nintendo killed it this year at E3, in my opinion. Aside from demonstrating creativity with their games (which some say has been long absent, though I don’t completely agree with that), they’ve also shown that the GamePad has value and it will be shown through several upcoming games. I look forward to seeing what comes of it.
John Gruber wrote a fantastic article about the New Apple, the Apple that showed us how much it can accomplish last week. There’s nothing I can add that he didn’t say (and way better), so just read this whole article:
In this interview, Miyamoto and Takahasi give us a better explanation of how the Amiibo figures will work. They’ll have a large section of the figurine’s data storage dedicated to storing/transferring Smash Bros. data. The small portion that remains will be dedicated to just saying “this is Mario” or “this is DK”. That latter portion can be used for any game (already Mario Kart 8 and Mario Party 10 announced) for various reasons. Perhaps they’ll be used similarly to Skylanders and Disney Infinity, but I’m not sure how that’d play in to games like Mario Kart where characters are already available.
I’m very interested to see where this goes.
