I've been bitching to Jim Dalrymple of The Loop for years that, as much as I liked his and Peter Cohen's highly curated, Apple-, web-, music-, and gaming-centric link-list style, I missed their longer form pieces, the kind I remembered fondly from Macworld. Jim, of course, laughed. You might well know Jim's laugh. It's equal parts hilarious and bone-chilling. That laugh. Then, one day, he called me and said I could stop my bitching. He had a plan.

Earlier today Google posted some iOS code aimed at helping developers use a combination of URL schemes and x-callback to basically set Chrome as the default browser from within their own apps, if it detects the user has Chrome installed. Call it a hijack, call it a take over, call it a 5th column, call it whatever you want, but it's a smart, strategic move on Google's part, and it's something Apple will have to address. Here's why...
Spark Inspector, by Foundry376 and J. Benjamin Gotow, brings a new approach to debugging, offering developers the ability to view their apps in an exploded 3D model, as well as change characteristics of elements on the fly, without the need to recompile. Often times apps appear to be relatively flat, two-dimensional beings. After all, they are displayed on a flat glass screen.
