Firefox3 PR Backfires?

After announcing to the world that Firefox 3 will be available at 10am PDT today, June 17th, amidst apparent publicity stunt to generate the record number of downloads per day (has anyone been really keeping a tally?) the web site http://getfirefox.com/ returns the patheticHttp/1.1 Service UnavailableFirefox is certainly a decent browser, but it's stability seems to have gone reversely proportional to the self-professed greatness and the size of their publicity stunts.Safari is now by far the best looking, and fastest browser for Windows, and it has been that way for mac for a while.Good luck Fifefox 3 (when we see you), but I for one, am not buying it.Update @ 12:23pmOK, so finally FF3 is available for download, and I have it installed and running. The first thing is that not all plugins are compatible, and if you are using FireBug for web development, you must install the 1.1 version available here.

Infectious.com launches!

It finally happened :) I've been working for Infectious.com since about July last year, and it's been a really fun run building a brand new product, from a mere conception to this moment - full public launch.Of course some people may have caught the glimpse of this from TechCrunch article a few weeks ago. Nevertheless, here it is - Car Art For the Masses - available to you from a spanking new website, designed and developed by the Team Infectious and yours truly.The idea of course is simple - everyone's car looks the same! OK, so some are dirtier than others, some stink more, all of this is certainly true, but from an aesthetic point of view, if you and your neighbor accidentally buy the same model of a car, you are screwed! Well, not really, and especially not anymore.Stop wasting time and go get some cool art for your car, make it look like nobody else, even if you drive a stinky dirty '74 Datsun. I'm seriously.
