MobileMe Web sports new ‘app switcher’, toolbar, login screen, lots more…

MobileMe as we know is going through some UI and feature overhauls, in selective beta, these past few weeks. The latest change in the web app is this beautiful in-your-face app switcher. Simply click the app icon in the top left, and this OS X-like HUD shows up on screen.

Formspring.me gets redesigned

Formspring is one of those niche social networks that no one but 15 year old teenage girls understood. Until designers started signing up, which converted people us into teenage girls.

Originally known as Transit, the gorgeous and powerful Truck went through hundreds of bug fixes and enhancements and was finally unveiled to the public on April 27th,...

Pure CSS Icons: An experiment by Zander Martineau

Zander Martineau, a freelance Web Designer and Developer from London, has put up some rather splendid icons up on his blogsite. These icons, however, have been created entirely using just CSS, using some of the newer features of CSS3 such as gradients and rotation. Since these are built upon completely open standards, you can view the source and study how they were created; a great learning experience. If that’s not the way you like to learn things, Zander has also...

CanvasMol: Ultra Cool ‘Science Stuff’

I admit I don’t even know what this is. I get it, something to do with molecules and stuff that makes up the stuff we see today, but beyond that it’s just a cool toy to me. But CanvasMol is not just a cool toy made using HTML5 and other open technologies. It’s serious science shit. You get to see the composition of complex molecules, twist them around to see them from all angles, and toggle features. You can view...
