Take a Wok website released!
Posted on: 2008-11-15
Sometimes Webstyle Center works on website’s that are not connected with webdesign for actors or artsist. Today Webstyle Center released an website for an restaurant in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, where people can eat fast-food from a wok.
The website that we made for Take a Wok helps the restaurant to get more customers. Introducting yourself on the internet is the most important thing these days, since every person looks on the internet for information before it really goes to a place. They want to know if the restaurant is decent, interesting, what they can expect, and want to know why they should be going to that restaurant, and not the one next door.
With an unique up-to-date design, we made sure that those visitors looking for information are able to find the thing they want to know, and get to see everything about the restaurant in the first few seconds. A first impression is very important, and since we are using photos from the restaurant and even an video, visitors can feel that they are very welcome and they can enjoy their stay at the Take a Wok restaurant.
With an quick overview on all the information about the restaurant, and a direct view on how it looks at the inside makes sure when people visit this site, they want to visit the restaurant.
The English version of the site is soon available, Dutch visitors can go to:

The latest browsers
Posted on: 2008-09-04
In the past few months there have ben alot of talking about new browsers and their new functionality, but what makes these browsers so important for your daily surfing?
An important thing of a webbrowser is that it displays every website like it should be. The best way to do that, is by following the web standards. However, some browsers did not really care about the importantance of those standards, untill 1,5 years ago, when Firefox became popular.
Firefox started to read the web like the webstandard told them to, and because of it's popularity, webdesigners needed to change there websites also accourding to those standards. More browsers came, but Internet Explorer was left behind.
With Firefox 3 released, and with almost more Firefox users then Internet Explorer users, it was time for Microsoft to bring a new browser that finally browse like it should be. But if they improve enough to get those Firefox users back? We don't really think so.
However, we do think people won't stuck themselves with Firefox either. With Google Chrome just released a few days ago, this browser is already showing amazing things, on it's first beta release. With nice Winodws Vista WPF effects and a new way to handle things, with a clean layout, we think that his browser makes many people interested to give it a try. And with that, those Firefox users might be convinced to use this new browser, and Internet Explorer users might too.
With this browser was happening right now, it's important as webdesigner to make sure that the websites work on all these browsers. We will make sure that all the website will keep working like it should be, and that we make use of the advantace of those new browsers when enough people are using it. But one thing is for sure, a good browser application was as never as important as it is right now.

Microsoft mentions Sports Fan Podcasts
Posted on: 2008-06-05
In the May 2008 release of the Internet Explorer 8 newsletter, Microsoft mentioned Sports Fan Podcasts as a good example website that shows off how the webslice functionallity can be used on websites. We noticed an increase in webslice pings on our site directly, what simply tells that people are interested in this function.
Sports Fan Podcasts extends webslice functionality!
Posted on: 2008-06-04
Sports Fan Podcasts is one of the very first websites that intergrates the new webslice functionality of Internet Explorer 8.
In the past two months, we only showed you the webslice functionality on the "Keep-up-to-date" page of every team.
This page is more used for people that don’t have an up-to-date computer, so they don’t see rss feeds or the itunes feed by default.
From today, the first podcast on every team is added inside an webslice div. This means that you can slice the first podcast of your favorite team, without having to visit the "keep-up-to-date" page. As soon as that team has a new podcast, you will get notified, and see all the podcast details directly in your favbar!

Jake Thomas stars in ER
Posted on: 2008-04-10
Eighteen year old actor Jake Thomas (LIZZIE McGUIRE, ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE) is the lead guest star on ER, Thursday, April 17th at 10PM/9PM CDT on NBC. Jake plays a character who is suspected of beating his father. The episode is entitled "As the Day She was Born."
Jake also had an interview with Knoxnews:
Thomas says he found working on "ER" quite a different experience from what he is used to. "They run a very tight ship on their stage, but I guess that would be expected after the 14 years the show has been on the air," he says.The "blocking rehearsals (were) done quickly and camera equipment set up with the same amount of speed."The pace of shooting did not compromise the quality of the production, he says. "Sometimes it really felt like they were racing some other crew, but what was amazing is that even with what looks to me as haste, every shot was done perfectly," he says."This is a result of working with your crew long enough that you know how to get things done efficiently. 'ER's' cast and crew are a set of real professionals, and they know their stuff."... Read more
In the next 4 weeks, Jake Thomas will be shooting a new feature film "The Assignment" in Salt Lake City. More about this comming soon!

Thomas looks to strike chord with HSM franchise
Posted on: 2008-03-07
"Yesterday was a first for me," Jake tells. "It was the first time I had to sing for an audition. It was an interesting challenge for me, but I think I was up for it." Thomas performed for casting agents looking to fill the lead role of High School Musical 3, which will be the swan song for the current "HSM" cast, but not the end of the "HSM" franchise.
"This is their last hurrah," Thomas says. Thomas is auditioning for the lead male role, a part that would, essentially, fill the void when Efron‘s character is gone from movies beyond "HSM3." "The character I am auditioning for would take over Zac Efron‘s (function). He would be the new star basketball player at the school," he says. Thomas fancies himself a singer but not much of a dancer. He‘s also not much of a fan of "HSM" or any other musical for that matter. "I‘m not one who gives into hype," he says with a laugh when asked if he was a fan of the previous "HSM" movies. However, "I did watch ’Sweeney Todd,‘ and I liked it a lot," he says. His next project is the TV western movie "Aces N‘ Eights," airing later this month on the ION network (the channel formerly known as Pax). Jake Thomas co-stars in it with Ernest Borgnine.
