iPod Engraving Gallery and Leopard.Next DHTML

Category: Apple, Showcase

I noticed the new iPod Engraving Gallery that is a nice use of Coherent to show a slick UI with engraving suggestions.

I was also talking to a friend that has leopard beta bits and he was playing with an updated Dashcode. It appears that the Coherent library is now used for the widgets too. Yay data binding!

OT, but… How nice from apple to decide what you can or cannot write on your own ipod: If the text is labelled as “inappropriate” then you won’t be able to proceed. Talk about big brother! Will the next step be the iPhone locking up if you swear during a conversation?

@moondogx – They want brand purity. It’s the same reason they filter what can be on the App Store. They don’t want negativity associated with their brand, so they don’t want profanity and “inappropriate” messages stuck on their iPods either.

It makes sense, whether you like it or not. If you don’t like it, don’t buy their products.

You could get any local engraver to put “lick my privates” if you really wanted.
Before digital cameras you had to worry about some prude reporting inappropriate photos during film and print processing.
So, we lose some privacy battles and gain others. Yeah, probably lose more than we win nowadays.

BTW, can someone remind me what “Coherent” is again? There’s so much jargon here I need a glossary sometimes.
