Why Learning About CSS Is Important [Deals]

CoM - html5css3

I’m no web designer. I’m not a coder either. I’ve either used WordPress or Squarespace to build my sites, which enables me to focus on content more than anything else. But there are times where I wish I knew more about CSS (or more specifically, CSS3) so I could make changes to my templates – even minor ones. I wish I knew how to take care of some of those things so I didn’t have to read up how to do it online – and spend an inordinate amount of time doing so – and then hope that I did it right because all I’ve done is copy and paste some code.

Cult of Mac Deals has an actionable video course that will help you wrap your head around CSS3 (and HTML5) during this limited time offer. For $39 you’ll get this course – and learn about some essential coding practices in the process.

Stunning Content Optimizer InboundWriter Coming Soon To An iPad Near You [Exclusive]

InboundWriter is one of those stunning, trick applications you’re surprised even exists. It’s a web-based text editor that allows you to see — via a big speedometer-like gauge — how well you’ve tuned your document to be search-engine friendly (otherwise known as search-engine optimization, or SEO), and then gives you the tools to tweak your document’s SEO to perfection. And yes, it’s free — so long as you don’t go over eight documents per month.

But since its launch early this year in May of last year, InboundWriter has been running on Flash, making it annoyingly unavailable on the iPad. But that’s about to change; it’s been re-worked from the ground up to run on HTML5, and has even had its aspect ratio optimized for the iPad.

Yahoo Reaches For Relevancy With New Axis Search Platform, iOS App Included

By

Axis on iPad

Yahoo announced tonight the launch of its new search platform, Axis. The idea here is that users can search the web using their iPad, iPhone or computer and then pick up that search when they move from one device to the next. It’s a cool idea, and one that we hope other search companies pick up soon.

Yahoo is touting Axis as a one-step search solution, allowing users to visually search the web from any other web page without having to leave that page to search. The visual layout on the app looks a lot like the Pulse News app, with previews of web search destination sites listed in swipe-able rows on a black background.
