Nexus 4 LTE with Fido (Canada)

I'm one of the few fortunate to have its hands on a Nexus 4 in Canada. I was with Vidéotron and the phone was working fine. But I wanted to try LTE and I got it quickly with Fido!

Javascript Woes - NaN

Just think about this:
isNaN('');
// false

parseInt('');
// NaN

parseInt(+'');
// 0
I found a bug in knockout's documentation and after reviewing the code, I found that this was the root of the confusion. I'm happy to leave you confused as well :)

Your Own Google Earth Web Page Screensaver in C#


Here's my latest blog post... I'm saying 'post' instead of 'article' because this is more of a showcase than a tutorial. Code is provided as usual so the learning process is on your side at your will and your pace :)

What the screensaver actually dipslays is shown above (Earth plugin required). The screensaver is continually fetching the latest North American Tweets containing the #Google Hashtag from Twitter and displays them. Pretty nice!

SEO Tip: Dynamic Google XML Sitemaps Generation in C#

Sitemaps are a way to tell Google about pages on your site we might not otherwise discover. In its simplest terms, a XML Sitemap—usually called Sitemap, with a capital S—is a list of the pages on your website. Creating and submitting a Sitemap helps make sure that Google knows about all the pages on your site, including URLs that may not be discoverable by Google's normal crawling process.

Create Zoomable Images Using The Google Maps API




I visited the Google+ Project website the other day and to my surprise, it was powered by the Google Maps engine! It is somewhat creative to re-use the Maps engine for any purpose other than mapping. It is just beautiful.

It also reminds me of the Art Project I've seen a while back that uses the Street View engine. A must see.

Anyways, I'm pleased to show you two samples today: they both let you navigate into an image using the Google Maps engine. I'm also giving up the necessary tools to do it yourself. Enjoy!

Is Google Maps API v3 Down?

(Today June 22nd 2011, 2:50PM)

There's a problem with the Maps API v3: The inclusion of the main file is ok:

http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=false&language=en

But it turns out it includes another file which is currently not found:

Anyone else experiencing this?
