Link: Cherokee, Apple partner to put language on iPhones
Cherokee is now a language option on Macs, iPods Touch, iPhones, and iPads.
MacOS has supported Cherokee since 2003, but iOS has only supported it since version 4.1. I would not be surprised at all to see Apple do a big push to translate iOS even more widely in the next year or two. (AP story, on Yahoo! News)

Link: Keynote ProTip: Two Start Slides
From Tim Bray (read the rest, too):
The time starts counting when you hit “next slide” for the first time; not when you hit “Play” on the slide show. Now, in many cases, when the audience comes into the room, you want to have your title slide showing so they know they’re in the right room.
Thus the recommendation. So you walk up to the podium, hit “Next Slide” and because there are two copies of the title, the screen doesn’t change, but the time clock starts counting.
