Apple Claims New iPhone Only Visible To Most Loyal Of Customers

"I am proud today to introduce to those who really, truly deserve it, our most incredible iPhone yet," announced Apple CEO Steve Jobs, extending his seemingly empty left palm toward the eagerly awaiting crowd. "Not only is this our lightest and slimmest model ever, but as any truly savvy Apple customer can clearly see, it's also the most handsome product we've ever designed."

My almost perfect vim files

Vim is in. TextMate is out.

Here are my dot files and vim settings.

http://github.com/fredlee/mydotfiles/tree/master

Feel free to use these for the good of all people.

Some highlights:

  • ir_black is the best color scheme. I finally got it working with popups when running Vim in Terminal (i.e. not MacVim). Before anything that triggered a popup, such as word completion, or FuzzyFinder TextMate, was useless because the popup's color was the same as the backgrounds. You could not see what you were choosing.
  • Use 'jj', instead of 'esc'.
  • ',F' for Ack in Project
  • After a search, use the spacebar to toggle on/off highlighting the search results.
  • ',v' for a equally sized vertical split window
  • ',w' to move to the next window

$18M Being Spent to Redesign Recovery.gov Web Site

$18M Being Spent to Redesign Recovery.gov Web Site

What?! Who is doing this for them? Even at crazy high rates, this number is is nuts.

($200/hour)(40 hours/1 week)(52 weeks/1 year) = $416,000/year

5 year long project.

($416,000/year)*5 years = $2,080,000 (we still have not spent $18 million)

It is going to take about 8.5 people, 5 years at the cost of $18 million to "redesign" a web site? Forget "redesign". Let say they are actually going to "redo" the website. Sounds like that SOW was a winner.
