Blessings in Disguise

Even with 40% longer battery life, I managed to kill my new iPhone 4 on the train ride home tonight. A minute before reaching my destination it went dead just in time to overhear this gem:

You need to reevaluate your coochie because it ain’t gettin’ you paid. What the fuck are you looking at!? I’m on my phone!

Then, the train came to a rest at the platform. I walked home chuckling, happy about life.

Clarification: I overheard a woman, and she was not directing her comments at me. This casually dressed trending towards scantily clad African American woman just did not give a fuck.

I’ve just released the new version of jQTouch, my open source jQuery plugin for mobile development. jQTouch allows developers to create powerful, native-looking apps on the iPhone with just HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

The beta has new themes and demos, support for new events, including swipe detection and page transitions, and new options for fullscreen mode, including icon and startup screen. jQTouch is written in HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery. Check out the demo video to see it in action!
