Hangouts for desktop update

Hangouts on desktop now support IRC-style /me messages in their full flair. It's only a matter of time before HO for mobile gets this update too.

For a site that calls itself +TechRadar, they're pretty inept at tech. Not redirecting desktop users to the desktop version of their website when they visit the m.* version is an old school #usabilityfail. Heck, using the m.* subdomain for the mobile version of your site is a #usabilityfail  in its own right.

What you explained though is outside of what css does, it's not a limitation in css, it was never designed to do that.

You, or some software, would create the different image sizes, then css would display them based on the size.

This can be done at the basic level just using divs and css to hide/show content. Or html5 picture/source tags, and even svg images can do it, as well as adapt to bandwidth changes.

Then, servers can do this, entire full length videos can be rendered on the fly, based on size, even clips sized for blackberry phone hd limitations...even for wap devices, pictures are cake today...

Nothing today is an all in one tool, with frameworks now, and rendering engines for css, and who knows what else..... today, the word "limitation" is 100% in the mind of the person, not the technology or possibilities.

Drastic? Not really when you realize how stupid these bracelets were in the first place. All it does is measure how much your wrist accelerates; i.e. it records the velocity of your arm.

Good to see Nike has at least one adult running the company projects.

All these reports and not a single mention of battery life - the most important stat by far. Unless this "always on" screen burns into the pixels and remains visible in "dead" mode, changing only the pixels that need changing when certain information updates, I don't see it lasting more than five hours, and having a usb cable constantly attached to my wrist whenever I'm sitting down next to a power source would not be a pleasant experience. Unless there's been a breakthrough in graphene battery tech we haven't been informed of.

It's not something I have any interest with, but in my life 8 hours would be okay but 10 hours would be best for sub 1 day battery life. Like my phone it'll only be of use for minutes of the day.

Most excellent!
 
Last year, we rolled out support for deploying your Google App Engine application using git, giving you an easy-to-use mechanism for deploying your application on every push to your cloud repository’s master branch.

Today, we’re happy to extend support for this feature to repositories hosted on GitHub. By connecting your App Engine project to your GitHub repository, you can trigger a deployment by pushing to the project’s master branch on GitHub. 

Read more about it on our blog:

It's funny because Linkedin has one of the absolute worst mobile apps out there, along with Quora, Skype and Facebook.

Excellent Zante Lamb, fantastic meat, very juicy and tasty. Quite a fancy tavern, considering amount of food per euro, but a foodie's heaven. Also, the elusive Alfa beer is on offer here.

Been here with the missus for a couple relaxing wellness days and we were reborn. A fantastic view from the fourth floor overlooking the sea, amazingly comfortable beds and extraordinary food during both dinner and breakfast are just some of the perks - then there's the saunas, the roof which overlooks the town and coast, the pandering by the pool, the custom breakfast orders if you don't like anything of the 100 foods on offer. Will definitely visit again.

Fantastic ethnic food. Highly recommend the "meza for 2". You'll get stuffed with awesomeness.

A very good pizzeria with a semi-decent view. The staff is great, albeit a bit too enthusiastic, and the overall feel is very good. Definitely give them a chance next time you're around.

Very good, the square lasagna pizza "moho" was an interesting experience. You'd think it would not be enough, but by the time you're done you're fed to death. Ok prices and nice, cosy ambient, give it a try.
