Football Cliches book review: Will make a brilliant Christmas present for anybody who enjoys the beautiful game (pun intended)

by admin
first_img From detailed breakdowns of the different stages players go through when moving from one club to another, through to definitions of each and every type of shot it's possible to make in football (the definition for "rammed" is particularly amusing), football is beautifully and lovingly sent up.  07/11/2014 Upd. on 09/11/2014 at 15:48 CET The author, Adam Hurrey, observes that some words are almost solely used in a footballing context; when was the last time you heard of anyone being beleaguered other than an under-pressure football manager? If you're a football fan - and if you're not, why are you on this website? - then you will recognise the many, many cliches highlighted in this book. center_img Cleanly and cleverly illustrated, Headline's nicely presented hardback will make an ideal Christmas gift (that time of year already...) for anyone who enjoys reading about or watching football. Rik Sharma Some of them you shall acknowledge with a knowing nod. Some a snigger. And on a handful of occasions you will laugh out loud, when it's clear that some of the phrases used about football on a daily basis go beyond trite and silly and belong firmly in a pile marked nonsense.last_img

Gotuit SceneMaker and The Online Video Holy Grail

by admin
first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic... A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai... richard macmanus Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts center_img Last week I was briefedabout a new product just released by Gotuit, calledSceneMaker. It enablespeople to cut up and tag videos from platforms like YouTube or Metacafe. SceneMakeressentially allows users to embed e.g. a YouTube video in a Gotuit page, then addmetadata around it. I was impressed with theusablity of SceneMaker, but one question I had was how the likes of YouTube and Metacafewill react to having their user-generated content manipulated on another site – whichthey may view as a competitor? The Gotuit folks didn’t seem concerned about this, sayingthat the hosting of the videos always remains with the likes of YouTube – Gotuit simplyprovides a platform to add metadata to those videos. Techcrunch has more details about SceneMaker’s features.Essentially this is another bit of progress in what I recently described as the holygrail of online video, searching within videos. In that post I describedanother web app, called Coull.tv – which allows users tosearch for specific moments within videos, as well as click on and interact with “movingobjects”. It was noted in the comments to that post, by regular R/WW commenter “old school developer”,that Coull.tv is currently Microsoft Windows technology only and the ability tomanipulate or interact with objects inside video is an MPEG-4 feature.osd was also kind enough to point me to other instances of searching within video.VentureBeat recently ran a story about Pluggd, which raised $1.65M onthe back of claims that it “perfects” audio and video search. Other videosearch companies mentioned in that article were Pixsy,Podzinger and CastTV.Gotuit SceneMaker is not a Windows-only technology and it seems very slick, so thislooks like a promising product. However it remains to be seen how many users from YouTubeand Metacafe they can attract, because it seems to me they’d need to (ahem) cut intothose existing audiences to gain traction. Also getting a core community of active usersto do the majority of the video cutting and editing will be – as always – the keychallenge. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#Video Services#web last_img

iPhone App for Google Places Now Knows What’s Open & Good

by admin
first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai... Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting marshall kirkpatrick Related Posts The Google Places iPhone app saw a major upgrade today and added three features that will make it all the more appealing to use instead of competing mobile location search apps: filter by proximity, rating and price, filter by “open now” and the ability to read full reviews of restaurants and other businesses inside the app.In other words, show me a coffee shop that’s close to me and open now. The addition of these features to the Google Places helps bring its app to feature parity with Yelp’s iPhone app. You’ll need to download an update to the app to see the new features. The Places app doesn’t appear yet to have integrated much in the way of Plus-style social features, but presumably that’s forthcoming. Will it be good? Who knows – the service’s launch of an API a year ago doesn’t appear to have resulted in much yet.That said, I use the Google Places app on my iPhone whenever I want to look up anything but restaurants. I still prefer Yelp for restaurants because I think there are more, longer and better reviews posted. But if I’m looking for a convenience store, bar, park or other type of Place – I really like what Google is doing. The ability to filter for businesses open now sounds pretty sweet.center_img Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic...

first_imgMan Utd boss Solskjaer: What I can teach Rashfordby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no doubts about the potential of Marcus Rashford.Solskjaer wants to teach the England striker how to become a fox in the box after he struggled for goals under predecessor Jose Mourinho. He said: “I think Marcus has got his own motivation to become the best player he can be.“He has got far more than I did in terms of his physical attributes, his pace, his strength and striking the ball from outside the box. But maybe I can give him a little bit of the nous I had inside the box. I'm talking about the little moves you make to get free, that little bit of calmness in front of goal."Marcus is only 21. He's still learning. The most important thing I can see is to just settle him down in front of goal.“I've seen him rush a few finishes. He thinks 'I've got to get a shot off early' when sometimes you just need to pass it past the keeper. I always say that the goal never moves. So I am really looking forward to working with him."
