Once again I've decided to optimize Opera wallpapers for Android devices and, as always, you can get them from DeviantART
. Click on Download button on the right side. Wallpapers are packed into 7zip archive
Wallpapers are for the following screen resolutions:
* 480x800 (Nexus, Desire, Liquid, etc)
* 480x854 (Droid and other hi-end Motorolas)
* 320x480 (Hero, c, etc)
* 240x320 (Tatoo, Wildfire, etc)

There's a post
with the same title on OSNews
discussing HTML + JS + CSS performance versus Flash 10.1 beta. Khm... I find strange that people think that HTML5 is somehow a magic performance booster!
The problem with Flash about performance is not Flash in itself, but lame "web-masters" who create buggy resource hungry banners, flooding all of da intarwebz with them and bringing our PCs down on their knees. And HTML5 will not fix that in any way. The only global solution to performance issues all over the web is to build big ovens all over the world and burn brain-damaged web-devs alive.

Ever wondered how to create ferrofluid? If so read on Popular Science article
! Why to do-it-yourself? Well, because buying it costs about $150 per liter!

is a great multiplayer game available both for PCs and game consoles linking these two worlds together. One of the issues in modern crossplatform game development is hardware platform differences resulting in uneven performance. Eurogamer
has an article on how did the guys from Criterion Games solve this issue

Just found an article with funny title on Smashing Magazine
and it is called Why Web Developers Don’t Need A Mac
(: Actually this one is not so about Mac vs PC, instead it is focused on software which will be useful for webdevelopers and which is available for Windows platform only. The fight starts only at the end of article (:

has an introductionary article on Android development
which I do recommend to everyone interested in development for Android mobile platform. Article gives overall platform introduction, brief history, then focuses on application architecture, SDK and tools and finishes with simple example application with source code available for download. I hope more Android development articles will come soon to IBM developerWorks.

I'm writting a lot about web-development lately (: So, once again I will write about good tool for web-dev... Khm... Web-designers this time, actually (: And not only for web-designers, but many graphic artists collaborating with each other and/or their clients.The Commentor
is a collaboration tool meant to connect designers, photographers, other visual artists and their clients. The main feature is advanced commenting on graphical images, so basically team can mark problematic spots right on image. Sometimes it is very hard to understand what that big fat rich guy wants from you. The Commentor gives him a tool to mark that left corner on the right bottom side of topmost button and leave a comment. Now you understand what he is talking about (: A must-have tool for freelancers!
P.S. By the way, don't be scared by word "trial" on site - most of functionality is free!

I stated my opinion on browser speeds already
, yet many people still create benchmarks (: Well, I have nothing against them if they like to create benchmarks. So let me introduce Peacekeeper
! A brand new benchmark from Futuremark
gurus who are responsible for 3DMark and others. The good thing about Peacekeeper is that it looks nice and funny, so you should at least look at it (:
