This. Is. Awesome. Readlist allows you to create ebooks from existing web content – and have that sent to your Kindle / iWhatever. That’s just going to fit so nicely in with my life that I’m nearly weeping at the thought of it. For example, I spend the morning surfing the internet researching an upcoming […]

It’s great to see more and more responsive web design going on … and this wonderful showcase highlights some of the best current work. This example from the University of California in San Diego is lovely – a good, strict responsive grid. It doesn’t try to do too much, but each screen resolution looks native […]
There are many things that consistently vex me. Solutions for three of them presented themselves this rainy Tuesday morning – too good not to share. Bookmarks I don’t have a problem with bookmarks.

So then, the time has come to start a client project from scratch using purely responsive techniques (as defined by Ethan Marcotte’s book Responsive Web Design). I’ve retro-fitted some responsive techniques to previous client sites, but this will be the first ‘responsive’ project I’m starting from scratch. The three core ‘ingredients’ for this responsive website […]
It’s been all about jQuery plugins for responsive web design these past few weeks … and here’s another good one: FitVids: A lightweight, easy-to-use jQuery plugin for fluid width video embeds. And, nicely done this, they’re using another responsive jQuery plugin – FitText for the heading text. Nice work all round. Hurrah!
