I’m a real gadget fan, but just recently nothing has really piqued my interest, until now.
The gadget I’d like to bring your attention to is the NoteSlate, a 1 bit note-making/doodling tablet. Unfortunately it’s not out yet, but it’s has been slated for release this summer (sorry).
It’s nice to see an exciting gadget that is so clearly task focused, I’m sure it will be a real success.
Whilst working on some new articles for the website I’ve been really impressed by what people are creating using CSS3.
It’s a really exciting time. Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 has just been released and it supports plenty of CSS3 properties (full list of Internet Explorer CSS3 properties). But of course, as with all web development, it’s never that easy. Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 isn’t compatible with windows XP.
Users on XP – which will account for around 40 to 45% of your website traffic – will be unable to upgrade to Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. It’s really got us thinking what’s the best way of arranging our stylesheets.
Anyway, here’s a couple of nice examples of CSS3 for you to enjoy either in Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer 9 running Windows 7 or Vista:
Let me know if you’ve seen nice examples of CSS3 or Windows 7, really cheap!
Whilst recently updating our advanced CSS training course to include some CSS3 commentary, I became inspired by the amount of CSS3 that’s already out there. Browsers such as Firefox and Safari have really started embracing CSS3, which means that there’s a significant audience that you could be demonstrating your CSS3 skills to.
I have put together Top 10 CSS3 commands, some of which are fairly widely known and also some that personally I find interesting (Box-sizing – Old school box model).
Please let me know what you think and also any sites that you’ve seen using CSS3 as well.
