Fluffy Links – Thursday 14th January 2010

Choice “genuinely disappointed” Music Awards. I hear TCD’s Maths Department are genuinely disappointed every day that 10 divided by 180 doesn’t give 10. Music is dead guest blog post on Nialler’s blog on the way. Written by 2 Unlimited (original lineup). Well done to Jim Caroll and all the other organisers. Do or die trying is how some people operate. Detractors take note.

Anyone that’s houseshopped of late can relate to the same house being listed all over the gaff with different prices.

Sky TV crew obey the SatNav and get in trouble in snowy Wiclow.

Takashi Murakami is exhibiting at Versailles from September. So. There.

Via Metafilter, repurposing architecture. From Die Hard and building hacks to the Israeli invading a city and burrowing through walls to avoid street combat.

How Radiohead gets and remains creative.

Flash comes to the iPhone, kinda. Convert existing Flash apps into iPhone Apps.

    MyHat as ever doesn’t really twig the genuine issue here, not only are duplicates a problem, although it’s hardly difficult to decide which price is leading the market and thus the genuine one, plus with property bee on daft (shortly coming to MyHome following the rejig possibly) and irishpropertywatch and other sites, you can also see when the latest price change was made.

    Multiple properties under one listing is also captured in estates, apartments, developments which blow the numbers out of the water.

    Daft (Ronan L) assured us a couple of times that the data is filtered but I don’t recall ever getting a satisfactory answer on that one.

    I was going to make another point but there is somebody at the door! Probably the Feds, run!

    Oh yeah… Here ->


    PTSB / ESRI have failed to produce their index for the last three mths, the October report is way late and the reasons probably range from sample size has died completely, they were down to Dublin and out of 3 bed semis last time and the fact that because PTSB apparently finance this thing and it doesn’t make pretty reading anymore, there is no incentive for them.

    So, it’s the old story… No transparency, no market volume information, no free registry of property price history free to inspect but don’t worry, IAVI say we are close to a “bottom”…

    Just like they said in 2007, 2008, 2009…

    You get the picture!

  4. The thing for creating iPhone apps from Flash movies is pretty old news at this point. There are a few examples that you can look at in the iTunes store, at the moment; rather simple, staggeringly slow, games.

    I’m not really looking forward to this coming out to the public at all, really; lots of awful slow things with poorly-designed custom interfaces (I’ve never seen a Flash interface I liked yet) will be the order of the day, I suspect.
