Stuff Tourists Like # 3

This is the peak season for Tourists : dear Nouillorqueur, I am sure your couch is booked till Labor Day ( and trust me I feel your pain…), and  just in case you were wondering how they would spend their day in NYC, I can bet you that they will end up in 2 spots :

Tourists Like to Stop in the middle of a street : Move to the side

Using a Pedicab to get to the Apple Store

this is a no-no using a pedicab is a tourist thing, no New Yorker would ever do that.

Apple Store : la tourneee des grands ducs

Oh lawwwd , where to start ??? I guess with the iPad crazyness, I can tell you  I have already  shipped several of those giant iPhones to the motherland, and thank you Steve for releasing the iPhone 4 in France at the same time as here …and even if we have 4 Apple stores in NYC, this not a reason to go to every single one and compare the price with the euro/dollar rate, because at the end, it is gonna be hard to carry your 27 inches iMac in your luggage back to France.

So of course , Thank you Steve, with the new Mac Book Air at $999 and 999 euros in Europe, I am gonna have a lot of orders as the Euro /Dollar rate is around 1.40 …

Hi(Pad) Haters !

Hi Haters !

It seems that the iPad got a lot of hate when announced last week, but my bet is, as usual, all the haters gonna love it . Keep in mind that it will be shipped in less than 60 days, hopefully when the iPhone OS 4.0 will be released, as there is an event scheduled in march for the iPhone developers.

  • There is (or will be) a camera
  • You can use as a phone ( See screenshots from the beta sdk below)
  • It is the perfect tool if you are designer and or you have visual  job to DISPLAY your work( it will replace your portfolio, your reel if you do videos, etc…)

So stop the hate & get on it  …

Here is below some screenshot form the iPad simulator in the iPhone SDK  and some link of vector files to get your iPad mockup game on:

MoMA with PoPa

Yesterday I went to my favorite museum in NYC, the Moma with my Popa who was visiting me here for the first time. Here are some snapshots taken with my iPhone with the effect of the polarize App, and written on the WordPress App for the iPhone as well.
