Firefox v30 for Android

Sebenarnya ga banyak sih update yang ditawarkan, dibandingkan versi 29 yang secara tampilan dah beda banget.

  • Terdapat tombol baru yang memudahkan kita untuk akses ke bookmark, social, dan history
  • GStreamer 1.0 yang akan memanjakan pengguna Linux untuk dapat mengakses video H.264 via browser seperti halnya AAC dan MP3
  • Plugin yang tidak ada di whitelist plugin Firefox atau bukan bagian dari extension browser ga akan aktif secara otomatis.
  • Buat para developer, background-blend-mode akan aktif by default dan waktu menampilkan error stack nomor kolomnya akan tampil juga.
  • Firefox 30 untuk Android menampilkan tombol Quickshare baru dan juga versi lokal baru (termasuk di dalamnya versi Indonesia, Malaysia, Latvia dan Belarusia). Loading pagenya juga mengalami perbaikan yang cukup bagus di jaringan 3G

Detil perubahan apa saja yang telah terjadi di versi ini dibandingkan sebelumnya bisa dibaca di sini. Info buat para developer terkait perubahan-perubahan di versi 30 bisa dibaca di sini.

Nah, versi berapa Firefox kalian saat ini? Ayo update ke versi 30 \^_^/

How to Create OS X 10.9 Mavericks Bootable Installer

install-mavs-00a

So, Apple’s latest Mac OS X 10.9 finally released with codename Mavericks.

Like the previous 2 version (Lion 10.7 & Mountain Lion 10.8), Mavs doesnt ship on a disc. it’s available only as an installer app downloadable from the Mac App Store. The installer it self needs no bootable installation disc. But it cant stop you for having a bootable Mavericks installer, right?

It will be very useful if you want to install Mavericks on multiple Macs offline.

And one more thing, users running Snow Leopard and later will be able to nab the update for free via the App Store. No additional cost.

So, i’d like to share how to create a bootable Mavericks installer on a USB stick. It’s not that difficult actually.

  1. You have to get the latest version of Mavericks installer first. Since i’ve downloaded Mavericks today (23/10/2013) from App Store, my version should be 10.9.0. The installer size is about 5.3GB. After downloading the installer a new window will appear asking you to install. Just cancel it.
    install-mavs-00c
    There’ll be at least 2 ways to create the bootable installer. Using Disk Utility and the fastest one is using a new feature built into Mavericks for creating an install drive called [highlight]createinstallmedia[/highlight]. I’ll use this method here.
  2. You need to have at least 8GB USB stick. Rename it to something you like. I name my USB Mavericks. Well it’s not to rename the drive. But since we will us Terminal to type the command, I think it will be easier for you to use a simple name for the drive. Make sure your USB is properly formatted.
    If you’re not sure about that, this is the step to prepare your USB drive.

    I use my previous ML USB installer

    Open Disk Utility, select your USB drive and choose Erase tab

    Give the name to your drive
    Click Erase



    that's all, you'll have your USB ready

    that’s all, you’ll have your USB ready



    [highlight]Warning: This step will erase the destination drive or partition, so make sure it doesn’t contain any valuable data. [/highlight]
  3. Open Terminal, and type/copy paste this command
    sudo /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Mavericks --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Mavericks.app --nointeraction
  4. Type your your root/admin-level account password when prompted.
  5. You’ll see the progress in the Terminal window. It will displays a textual representation of a progress bar: Erasing Disk: 0%… 10%…20%… bla bla bla. Wait until everything finished.

    I go inside the installer directory, therefore the command will be a lil bit different for you

    I browse inside the installer directory, therefore the command will be a lil bit different for you

  6. Voila! You have your bootable Mavericks-install drive.

MacBook Pro Retina Display

Ini adalah tsubaki, MacBook Pro saya edisi tahun 2010. Dengan RAM 8GB, she’s still a monster now.

^_^

Nah, kali ini saya mo nulis tentang MacBook Pro edisi terbaru 2012 dari Apple yang disebut sebagai MacBook Pro Retina Display.
Swear, this is a very tempting sexy machine too bad my pocket is not so deep to get one :(

Pada gelaran WWDC 2012 kemarin, Apple memperkenalkan generasi MacBook Pro yang baru. Ini menjawab gencarnya rumor yang beredar sebelumnya akan seperti apakah keluarga Mac edisi 2012.

Why it’s so sexy?

Mengusung dimensi 15.4 inch, like my MBP. MBP Retina ini tebalnya hanya 0.71 inch , berat cuman 4.46 pound (sekitar 2.2kg) pounds. Layar Retina Displaynya punya kepadatan 220 pixel/inch dengan resolusi native mencapai 2880 x 1800 pixel. Itu lebih gede dari pada resolusi iMac 27inch. Arrrgghhhhhh
Sementara tsubaki, beratnya sekitar 2.7kg, resolusi standar cuman 1440×900. Kebayang deh betapa berat dan sempitnya layar dunia dibandingkan MBP Retina Display :(

new mbp, thinner

lebih tipis dibandingkan yang lama (slashgear.com)

Buat yang pernah mengalami perpindahan dari iPhone 3G/3Gs trus ke iPhone4 pasti dah merasakan betapa kinclongnya layar Retina Display ini. Nah bayangin hal serupa untuk ukuran layar 15.4″ instead of cuman 4″.

Retina Display (apple.com)

Power?
Mac baru ini terpasang CPU Quad Core i7 2.3GHz atau 2.6GHz dengan speed yang bisa Turbo Boost sampai 3.6GHz. Kartu grafis terbaru NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M dengan 1GB GDDR5 memory. RAM 8GB (standar yah bukan upgrade) dan pilihan 256GB atau 512GB SSD. Ada card reader SDXC dan port HDMI, kameranya 720p HD.

www.apple.com/macbook-pro

Kalau cuman cuman dokumen ama browsing sih ini bakal overspec banget. Tapi buat developer nyambi fotografer ma desainer kaya saya ini bakal jadi mobile desktop idaman. Belum lagi untuk render movie, bikin track musik, development environment dengan sekian virtual machine, layar yang legaaaaa, you name it.
opsi upgrade dari MBP Retina Display ini diantaranya:
2.7GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz [Add $250.00]
16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
768GB Flash Storage [Add $500.00]

What is not so sexy?
Harganya bo’
$2,200 untuk yang SSD 256GB atau $2,800 untuk 512GB menjadikannya Macbook termahal yang pernah ada.
*biyuhhh*
*pegangin akal*

Durability produk Apple terbilang tangguh. Macbook white ku seri MB403 edisi 2008 sampai saat ini running very well, bahkan batre nya pun nyaris tidak berasa ada penurunan kapasitas. Yah kecuali bodi plastiknya ajah ada yang bocel karena sepertinya salah design si Apple dengan magnetic latch nya. Jadi teorinya si tsubaki ini masih bisa lari untuk 2 tahun ke depan :)

How To Tweets Your Current iTunes Track

Well, it’s nothing. Last Saturday I’ve stuck in office, have nothing to do but arranging my iTunes collection. Been awake since Friday night, and it seems my sleep disorder haven’t been healed yet :( So while i’m twittering i want also to use my current track played in my iTunes to be posted in twitter.

I remember i’ve made a small python script to do this couple years ago but lost the source code *facepalm* Hmmm, I think i gave the codes to @cothat and @rara79. But it will be rude to wake up those guys just for asking source codes :P

I rewrite it all over again, just to get me bored and hopefully sleep after that :P

Anyway, these are the codes that make it happen :)

You can make it simple and more robust though. I don’t put any exception to check whether my iTunes is running or not (yet) to prevent flooding my timeline with probably blank message :P

My previous version will run a loop and sleep couple of seconds. And within that loop it will check is the iTunes playing same song as previous or not. It will post to twitter if new song is detected :) Useful if you like to skip song in the middle.
