A week or so ago, Google released version 2 of their Gmail app for iOS, sporting a spiffy, sleek, and slightly whimsical icon. I’ve been using Sparrow for iOS and Mac and have been fairly happy until recently when the lack of push email had me itching to go back to Gmail (on the web). […]
A couple days ago, Twitter updated it’s logo. No longer will they be using the word ‘Twitter’, or the lowercase ‘t’. Just the bird icon (named Larry) and a simplified version at that. Good for them. Now they join the ranks of Nike, McDonalds, and Starbucks as a brand without a name. Not sure if […]

Well, my prayers have been answered: Tweetie for Mac, my favourite the best desktop Twitter client, has been updated into the official Twitter for Mac app, available from the Mac app store. You need OSX 10.6.6 to […]
A few years ago, I saw some scanned pages from a 1969 Matchbox car collector’s catalogue. A few days ago I sat down and went nuts for three days to turn those beautiful illustrations into icons for Mac and Windows. It was tricky; the registration[1.
