Today’s Readings

Every once in a while it is fun to hop in the WABAC Machine (that’s pronounced “wayback machine”, to you young-uns) and remember what our world was like so, so long ago, back when there were only two browsers to contend with…

This video of a presentation by Nicolas Zakas also has a really cool image, stolen from an Aaron Gustafson article on A List Apart, showing how Responsive Design is really just a peanut M&M…  It’s at about 9:20, if you’re impatient…

And speaking of holes in planets, ever thought of digging a hole to China? Of course is directly opposite of every place on Earth, right? Well, no, but now you can find out what is directly opposite of you

Ever been frustrated by the lack of SD card slots or USB ports on your fave tablet/mobile devices? CloudFTP to the rescue…

And finally, ever wondered where Super Heroes go in their golden years? Apparently to Miami, Florida

Happy reading,
