Silverlight on iPhone?

Ok. Nowadays, it seems everbody is accepting the truth that Adobe's Flash is too slow to run on low power consumpted handheld devices. Or rather I say Apple's devices, yeah that sounds more appropriate (btw I am an iPhone user and excited about iPad). The thind I wonder most about is, well uhmm, is it true for Microsoft's Silverlight too?

I know for a fact that Adobe's optimizations are "file size" oriented. It is said that developers at Adobe are strictly dictated over patch sizes and new versions in about 3 digit byte levels. Also I know for another fact that Silverlight is CPU-wise optimized. So why not fully support Silverlight instead of so called slow Flash on Safari Mobile. At least we'll have an alternative, and that's better than nothing.

Over a night, things change. Today the video on internets may equal to Adobe's Flash. Tomorrow, if everything played nice by Microsoft, it could be Silverlight in my humble opinion.

Halo Legends! AHOY! At Last It Is Out!

Halo Legends DVD is OUT! I already bought it from Amazon and watched it twice. In fact I watched the 8th episode of it 3rd times already. It is, in one word, SPECTACULAR. I was amazed, and learnt many new things about Halo Universe...

The details are breathtaking. I haven't watched the special features disc yet, but soon will. I am pretty sure it will be very satisfactory too.

Anyways I recommend it to everyone from one who has no idea to the one who is already a Hard Core Halo Fan. A must have I must say.

Let me close this post with this quote:

Well, TYTZ is a tagline for a local branch of Doritos. Tam Yeri Tam Zamani... It means, well roughly, the right place, the right time. They have a new campaign/ad. It's called Hisseli Tatlar Kampanyasi.

What is so good that makes me write about it? Let me explain. This campaign comes with this site, which allows contestants to make their own virtual recipé according to their own likings. After that one can join the competition to vote more than the others to win a prize which is 10.000 Liras (approx. 6800 US dollars) and bonus gifts etc.

The whole campaign is so addictive to see what others done so far and how are you doing in the competition, I liked it. I liked the idea, simple, creative and yet compelling to participate in. Moreover, it is stated that when one wins he/she will have a 1% gain from the sales of the new taste which she/he invented in the first place!

Pretty neat idea, I must say! Enjoy if you know Turkish =] ...
