Back to the drawing board?

I’ve been thinking about redesigning my blog’s logo icon for a while now, but didn’t find a moment so far to spend much time on it. Finally, a few weeks ago I thought I had nailed it down and came up with this simple icon…

Teach the web right

You could say that I’ve been around in this industry, but after all this years it still amazes me that certain aspects still are used like way back in the 90’s. I’m pointing my finger towards Flash now. For example, this week I received a request to link to a site that sells Flash templates.

Apple + Mobistar = Fail update

25 comments 2008 at 08.39 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

You think the iPhone launch in Belgium couldn’t get any worse? Think again. Mobistar just announced that the press event of tomorrow has been cancelled. The reason you ask? Apparently not all commercial details are ready by now so it has to be postponed to a later date. A later date that they can’t say just yet. I think Mobistar is going for the worst Apple iPhone partner ever award! Steve Jobs if you read this I would terminate this deal if I was you as this makes you look seriously stupid. How many times can you screw a good opportunity? In Mobistar’s case a lot :D At Mobistar nobody was available for comments. I wonder why? Man, at Proximus they must be having a ball.

Apple + Mobistar = FAIL!

62 comments 2008 at 03.17 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

The day after the announcement of the Apple iPhone 3G I was really excited to see Belgium among the 22 countries who would have the device available at July 11th. Now a few days later it seems that the flags of Belgium have been moved on the site to “soon available”. I understand that things here aren’t exactly the same as in most other countries because it is illegal here to sell contract/phone bundling in other words sim locked phones.

Stuck in London

So after the big rush to get ready for trip I was so glad that we made in time. To make everything go as smooth as butter I checked in online at the British Airways website so we didn’t have anymore unnecessary delays. The airport taxi picked us up at noon and we arrived at Brussels Airport at 12.45pm. Plenty of time to relax a bit and wait for the information board to show the right gate.

Free of charge please!

Today’s topic has been on my mind on several occasions but I always postponed writing about it. Something that happened on Saturday triggered this again. It’s an example out of the real world. One of those things that is on our to-do list is some new office/house furniture. So we visited a design shop and after some looking around we kinda found some great ideas. Before making a final decision we thought it would be a great idea to have some interior advice to see if all fits well in the available space.

How to screw your potential buyers

Yes the lords of the music industry are at again, this time in The Netherlands (and don’t get me started on the Stichting Thuiskopie). Geert and I are listeners of the Daily Source Code from Adam Curry and we love the Mashups, Hit Test from Jan Polet or the Backtracks Podcast Quiz. A fun way to give our brains a good workout.

KBC Online sucks for Mac!

34 comments 2005 at 01.25 am posted by Veerle Pieters

This post is a bit of a rant towards KBC, a big Belgium bank. I use KBC Online, their online product for wire transfers and other tasks. Now the part that really gets on my nerves is their stupid system requirements.

Web Standards in Belgium

68 comments 2005 at 11.50 am posted by Veerle Pieters

I’ve discovered Web Standards around end 2003 and now we are almost 2 years further but I still feel a bit like the lone gunmen in Belgium when it comes to general usage of proper W3C guidelines. Ok, there are probably a few that uses them but it’s like a needle in a hay stack. We often work together with the top 20 internet agencies in Belgium. In most of these projects we are responsible for the design and XHTML templates.
