I discovered an “undocumented feature” of iPhone OS today – I say it’s undocumented, but I what I mean is, I found a feature of my iPhone that I didn’t know existed.
We all know what an iPhone is and we all know what a screen grab is, but did you know you can use one to perform the other? Wow, this is cool, I’m so going to use it to… erm… send screen grabs of how many apps I’ve got?!
Anyway, if you want to do this, simply get the screen to where you want it to be (i.e. scroll past “The Cheeky Girls” in your artists list) and hold the power/lock key then quickly press the home button and you get the familiar “click” noise and the screen whites out.
Head over to Photos -> Camera Roll and there’s your screenie! Awesome. Now you don’t need an app for that!
Short and sweet today. Goodnight
Supposedly, 2010 is going to be the year that web developers (and hopefully designers) are going to embrace the power of HTML 5 & CSS 3 and obviously, in order for any of these cool new technologies to actually be visible to the user, our browsers are going to need to implement the rendering of them. As we all know, Firefox is ahead of the game when it comes to implementing new features – whether they’ve been approved by the W3C or not, those wonderful guys over at Mozilla tend to write the code if they like a feature. Safari/Chrome aren’t far behind either (WebKit being my favourite of the rendering engines) it’s only one browser that… do I even need to finish this sentence??
So last night Firefox 3.6 was released and as a diligent web developer, I headed over to firefox.com, downloaded it and added it to my ever-growing list of “browsers I need to keep to test my sites on.” This time, however, I read the FULL feature list rather than just skim reading the exciting stuff and this has prompted me to analyse the latest few versions, the upcoming “cool stuff” in HTML 5 and CSS 3 and draw comparisons, once again, between the different web browsers.

I was recently contracted by Ad Hoc Property Management to improve their company website’s positioning in the major search engines; this is my first real client again since the ban on my freelancing was lifted so jumped at the chance to get my hands dirty again and began the process, as I always used to, by getting to know the company and the industry that they work in.
