  1. Around the web

    Antennagate Bottom Line – cell reception is a local issue. John has way better reception in Philly than I’ve seen in Denver and the Bay Area. I was dropping at least 1 in 10 calls when on AT&T (I think more like 1 in 5). Since moving to Verizon nearly a year ago, i have…

  4. Around the web

    Stop the War, Start Improving – I think a big difference is that Apple knows where they are going and I’m not sure Android does (definitely more reactive).

  5. HTML5 Tip: input type=”date” and Webkit

    If you’re using HTML5 (like we are on the Crowd Favorite website), you may run into an issue of forms not submitting in Webkit browsers (Safari, Chrome).

Opinion: Android Devices With Good Phyiscal Keyboards Pose A Bigger Threat To The BlackBerry Than The iPhone Ever Has – “This…

  8. How to Get the Most From WordCamp

    With WordCamp Boulder coming up at the end of the week (still some tickets available), I thought it might be a good time to publish the observations and tips I’ve gleaned as a WordCamp attendee, speaker, sponsor and organizer. If I could only share one tip, it would be this: Take responsibility for your WordCamp…

  9. Around the web

    The “I was offline last week” edition. Microsoft Kin is dead — Engadget – That’s got to be a record. Derek Powazek – Press the Magic Button – I’m pretty agressive about blocking people on Twitter too, for the same reason. (thanks Geof)
