I had been using Chrome as the browser to use when I needed to use Flash, since I don’t install Flash otherwise for Safari. Recently, I switched back to it because it has a slightly better interface than Safari.
Google’s stated reason for removing H.264 is an outright lie. If they continue with the intention of removing H.264 and being, in essence, evil, I won’t use Chrome any more. I’ll have reservations about having my email account on Gmail, and hosting applications on App Engine.
My latest app, Squat Cycle, has just been approved by Apple. It should be available soon.
This is a pretty nerdy, powerlifter app. Even more so than WOD is. I wrote this because I wanted exactly this app for myself, and because I hated adding things by hand to iCal. I am, of course, looking for feedback about the app, and how to improve it. I just implemented the core stuff I wanted for the initial version, but I’d love to hear from anyone who has suggestions about how to improve it and make it more useful.
Spoiler: looking at the eyes and the lack of wrinkling around them is a pretty good tell. Oddly, it seems like other affirmative or negative gestures (nodding or shaking the head) don’t make a difference, in any predictable way. Also it seems like a lopsided smile (one side going up before the other, or one side more intense) isn’t a tell for a fake smile, even though it’s usually a contemptuous gesture (a sneer).
I’ve been fascinated by facial gestures and microexpressions recently. I scored poorly on a Autism spectrum test, and score much better on math and spacial recognition than verbal ability, so I’ve been wondering if I might have mild Asperger’s, and wanted to give my empathic acuity a test. I seem to be doing better than I should, though, if I did have Asperger’s.
