Fancy Font Replacement Support For The iPhone

There’s now another method besides sIFR (scalable Inman Flash Replacement) or even @font-face for fancy text replacement. It usees Javascript and is called; Cufon.

Easy to explain technicality is you’ll have to convert the font library you want into a font Javascript library – hope that makes sense. Then, get the Cufon library running and define the headings you want to replace.

And yes, Cufon now only promotes usage of text replacement for headings. While some may argue it’s not flexible enough, it’s enough for me. Sitepoint has done a good job comparing between the pros and cons of existing text replacement methods.

Do you use an image text replacement technique for your projects now?

P1 Team Fixes and Enhances Malaysia Wimax Coverage Map

p1-packetone-networksFew weeks ago, I received my promotional code for a 6-months free subscription of P1 Wimax. This was when I last visited the P1 Wimax booth at the third-leg of the PC Fair – along with the PC Fair booth babes. Naturally, first thing I wanted to know was if my area was covered. Plus, I didn’t want to find out I’m only at the fringe of coverage.

During this ordeal, I tried almost all available options to find out my coverage. I viewed the coverage map online, submitted an online enquiry, SMS them, call them and lastly, visited the P1 Wimax centre. I was forced to visit their customer centre because the previous coverage map (also using Google Maps) wasn’t reliable. But I guess my personal complaint lodged whilst at the centre was taken seriously. 🙂

Behold, the enhanced P1 Wimax coverage map using Google Maps.

What I love about it right now is the coverage areas are highlighted and there’s a compass you can move to see if your area is covered. Plus, I think the compass acts as the direction to where you face your P1 Wimax modem!

Finally, a coverage map which is easier and more accurate as compared to most coverage maps developed by any other network company. 😀

Do you think P1 needs to have a weather forecast come network report in the coverage map?
