    Today’s read: IE9 Review 


    I am a big Microsoft fan, though I work in open-source. Every time when they come up with  a new product or a major upgrade, I keep my fingers crossed. Reasons are pretty obvious. Today I got a chance to read an article on IE9 – Internet Explorer 9 Beta: Reviewed and Benchmarked – and I’m pretty much happy with the progress they made.

    Microsoft is making some bold claims with the release of Internet Explorer 9 Beta. They explain that other browsers, unlike IE9 Beta, only use 10% of your PC’s capabilities; they show how websites will be streamlined and work faster by taking advantage of your graphics processing unit (GPU), and how a range of new features will provide a richer experience when combined with Windows 7. Today, we will be looking at what new features IE9 Beta has to offer, and how it performs when bench-marked against Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera.

    Today’s read: Various ! 

    It’s been a while since I wrote anything here. I was kinda busy with so many things and that made me to stay away from writing for these many days.

    Today I’ve found a few articles in fastcompany.com (via twitter), fastcodesign.com & Smashing Magazine. And I’m really surprised by some of the facts which I found and some facts are really cool.

    1. You Can’t Appreciate How Completely Apple Has Humiliated The Cellphone Industry Until You See These Charts (Article page)
    This really surprised me. This article talks about how Apple rules the cell phone industry in terms of the profit they make even though they sell only 3% of the handsets! Don’t miss the charts in that page. They tell lot of stories.

    2. Google Steals Ideas From Bing, Bing Steals Market Share From Google (Article page)
    This made me happy. I am a big Microsoft fan though I work most on open source ! And I am really happy with the way how Bing works for them.

    3. Create a Font From Your Own Handwriting (Article page)
    This is what the article says !

    If you’re nostalgic for the days of long, handwritten letters, Pilot Pens has unveiled a new Web-based app that’s perfect for you: PilotHandwriting.com will turn your handwriting into your very own digital font, which you can then use in a letter to someone.

    4. Designing Style Guidelines For Brands And Websites (Article page)
    The article talks more about the branding guidelines, usage of colors, text and fonts with the help of guidelines followed by some of the well known global brands like BlackBerry, I love New York and Skype.

    Have a nice read !

    Microsoft & F# Functional Language 

    Microsoft plans to integrate F#, a functional programming language developed by the Microsoft Research group, into its Visual Studio application development platform, said S. “Soma” Somasegar, corporate vice president of the Microsoft Developer Division.

    The company, however, has not laid out a formal release schedule, although Somasegar pledged to both integrate F# into Visual Studio and continue evolving it.

    Pronounced “F sharp,” F# is based on the concepts of functional programming, Somasegar said. Functional languages treat computation as the evaluation of mathematical functions. The mathematical slant of functional programming is appealing to professionals in domains described with mathematical notation, including financial, scientific, and technical computing, said Somasegar.
