My Apple trackpad never leaves my desk. It always stays within few inches in front of my iMac. Therefore, its silly to have it battery powered. I also like to practice what I preach.
For the longest time I have marketed myself as designer-developer, developer-designer, UI/UX Developer & Designer, Front-End Developer/Designer, or some combinations of those words. I wasn’t quite sure what to call myself.

Pretty design is not a substitute for flawed logic. Good design is telling users what to do. Great design is knowing what user is about to do. Best error message is no message at all. Design is a solution not beautification. What works for them may not work for you. Learn from yesterday, work hard […]
A graphic designer’s oversight? Or do the rich really enjoy paying fees? I wouldn’t know because I’m not rich enough to ENJOY paying annual fees anyway.
Green technology, sustainable technology, or sustainable designs are some of the buzzwords of our time. What does it exactly mean? At the core of it, it’s an attempt to eliminate negative environmental impact and waste prevention through design. It all sounds grand. To many of us it sounds like something that only scientists, government or […]
What was once called the “Information Superhighway” has become “Information Wasteland”. We’re now experiencing severe information overload to a point where the information itself ceases to be beneficial and becomes the source of confusion for many people. Anything about everything is supported or opposed mostly without clear authoritative source and is accessible to everybody who […]
It’s been a long time, been a long time, been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time. Yes it has. Been too busy with work. Haven’t had energy left to touch my own stuff. But I’m finally updating the site with WP Twentythirteen. It has responsive structure built right into the theme. And it’s […]
Thunderbolt When the Thunderbolt was made exclusive to Macs, Apple ditched USB 3.0. Good marketing call but bad for the end users. Apple really should’ve kept both interfaces.
The world’s tallest phone. Checkout the guitar app!
Yes. We all knew it was coming. Now Adobe themselves has given up. → Adobe gives up on mobile Flash.
I really couldn’t care less about the fact that the new iPhone that Apple introduced three months late wasn’t an iPhone5. However, as a web designer, I do seem to notice somethings more than others. Things like how they present new products on their website, design, layout, etc. If you visited apple.com today, you’ll see […]
‘Sent from my iPhone’, ‘Sent via Blackberry’, or sent from whatever mobile device signatures used to imply one of few things:
I posted an article on how to repair the non-powering up Samsung LCD TV. Here’s the original post. Quite a few people have e-mailed me saying that they could not find the same capacitors at Radio Shack. Remember, as I stated in my original post, you’re NOT looking for the exact same capacitors at Radio […]
Facebook Policy Word Count = 5830 (and growing) U.S. Constitution Word Count = 4543
Digital camera market is full of advertising gibberish boasting high number of megapixel designed to lure consumer and beginner photographers into believing that more megapixel equals better picture and a better camera.
A nicely executed iPad wall clock app.
Have you ever wondered how Arabic numbers as we know it have come to take its current shape and form? I have taken few minutes to create this simple graph that outlines the evolution of Hindu-Arabic numerals glyphs. Notice that 1, 2, and 3 started as mere count of an object – a stick. Number […]
WAVES (Metric) Saw the water not the waves Caught your eye forgot your name Always leaving either way I want you to stop me
Samsung releases a product that has potential and actually could be useful, something that Apple’s iPad never was. The Samsung Galaxy Pad is smaller than the too-big-to-be-portable-iPad. It packs lot of features that puts iPad to extreme shame. In comparison to the iPad, the Samsung Galaxy Pad provides consumers what they want from the get […]
User-generated content in the form of blogs, forum, video, news, social media have enormously enriched the internet in recent years. We’re now about to witness user created content take on a new medium: movies.
The new iPhone 4, like generations before it, is a beautifully styled object. It appears cunningly simple at first but the amount of attention given to detail and design of each piece that make up the exterior is truly admirable. The texture, the curve, the sheen and the bevel of each button and pieces are […]
Checkout this cool free online image editing tool. It’s called pixlr.
Why don’t I own a Facebook account? Because I don’t want my life, relationships, likes or dislikes, interests, buying habits, thoughts or goals in life to be monetized by a corporation. Especially by a corporation run by a kid who doesn’t value personal privacy except his own.
Customers of TomTom navigation can now download the voice of Darth Vader. This is not a joke. It’s real.

The Telegraph ran an article titled “Steve Jobs is entrepreneur teenagers most admire..” Um, maybe because Jobs is the only entrepreneur most teenagers ever heard of? Mind you, the result is the poll of 1,000 12 to 17 year-olds. Hahaha! Not really sure what all this means, it just made me chuckle.
Everyone now can be an expert in anything with the help of the internet. Here’s how I DIY’d my Samsung LCD TV and saved $300 – $400. The LN series Samsung LCD TV never really powers up instantly even when new. But the time it takes to power up the TV took longer and longer […]
Tilt-Shift is a photographic technique that makes real-life subjects appear as if they’re miniature models with minimum depth of field. Very fun. Beached from Keith Loutit on Vimeo. Bathtub III from Keith Loutit on Vimeo. Bathtub II from Keith Loutit on Vimeo.
I believe technology should enrich our lives, make our everyday a bit more interesting and garnish the life we already have as humans in a society. It should not be something that enslaves us. Look what’s happening around you. Many so called ‘social’ media is actually making people anti-social. The addiction toward technology and social […]
She uses sand on a lightbox. Not only she draws but the drawings transition into sequence of scenes which tell a story which in itself is in sync with the music throughout the entire thing. Absolutely amazing!
I’m not in love with Twitter myself yet but I do believe it can turn out to be a useful medium depending on how you choose to use it. Some anti Twitter like this one, at first glance, seem to have a point but you quickly realize the person really doesn’t know how to use […]
Seriously. Picasso created art as he saw fit. No one questions Picasso. If Picasso decides a woman’s right eye should be twice as large than the other, no one dared to argue otherwise. When Picasso sees a nostril of a goat would be a good match for a woman’s face, people go crazy throwing hundreds […]
For those of us who have been developing websites since the 1990s, it’s easy to lay back and say “it won’t get any better than this” as far as front-end development and client-side technologies go. We’ve lived through the early days of web development using primitive HTML tags, rustic browsers, and all of the growing […]
