I heard some Interesting news about Fennec (Mobile Firefox). Mozilla mobile are planning to release a 2nd Alpha release before the end of the year for Maemo with performance improvements.
Next year is the planned first release, with versions for Maemo, possibly S60 (depends if they can get it working well enough in time for release), and windows mobile is expected to be working.
I asked what version of S60 they planned to develop for, and they said S60 3rd edition because that way it will bring Fennec to the largest amount of devices.
Currently there is only a touch screen version of Fennec that works. They are still working with different ideas on UIs for smaller screen (QVGA 320x240) and non-touch devices ie. windows mobile and S60 3rd devices. But they don't have a final UI yet.
They are not developing an iPhone version due to Apple's SDK License and Apple preventing "competing applicatons" to be available in the App Store. Christian Sejerson of Mozilla commented on Apple's App Store saying, Apple's approach is a failure they should focus on providing the best experience and service for their users not prevent competing apps on their devices.
They are also not developing an Android version, because currently Android apps are only developed in Google's version of Java and they are not willing to put a big effort into porting Fennec to that programming language.
Ubiquity is an Add-on/Extension that gives a lot of power to the user, to change how websites look, combine website content from different sites, and quickly look up specific information from different sites. It's sort of like Greasemonkey in it's ability to change a sites layout and design. It's long term goal after having established it in the Browser world is to bring Ubiquity to the desktop, making it easier to access info on websites right on your desktop, similar to Quicksilver for Mac. More details can be found on the Mozilla Labs Ubiquity Wiki.
Weave is another Add-on/Extension that Mozilla Labs is working on. One of the main goals Weave is trying to accomplish is Syncing your Bookmarks, cookies, history, and saved passwords between any Firefox browser with the Weave extension installed. The Sync will make a copy of your Bookmarks, cookies, history, etc. on Mozilla's server for backup as well. Because the Weave Add-on will also work in Thunderbird it's planned to also have the ability to Sync contacts from the E-mail client. The target is to have a first release at the same time as Fennec and to work with Fennec, so that your Bookmarks in Firefox can be synced to your mobile device that you install Fennec on. More info about Weave can be found on the Mozilla Labs Wiki site.
Here is a video of the final boss being defeated, a (special) ending, and the end credits to the recently released, in Japan, Chrono Trigger for the Nintendo DS.

Chrono Trigger DSi
I remember playing through this game using different characters to play through and getting the various different endings on the SNES, in my opinion it's still one of the best RPGs available. The graphics may not be top quality for today, but the music and storyline are still some of the best around.
Watched Friday the 13th Part 4 on DVD. It's just as bad as part 3 and 2. Part one/the first Friday the 13th was really good and is still scary for todays standards. Obviously these sequels were made in rapid fire mode, almost coming out with a new sequel every year. So my question is, since the sequels are so bad, why is it that the Friday the 13th series still became to be one of the most popular horror movie series?
Today is Wednesday that means Thai Truck for Lunch in Meguro! The building that the tall construction crane is working on is very quickly being built. Just compare the photos of the building from last week and this week. It's amazing how quickly buildings are put up by Japanese construction companies. Also notice how tall the new building is, previously there were rules for Tokyo on how tall a building could be, but recently the rule has been removed and buildings can be taller than ever. The rule was removed to improve economic spending on constructing new buildings and apartments, but hopefully safety is also a concern with these new taller buildings.
