Hey fellow dads: my son is about to turn 1. What are the gifts you thought turned out the awesomest for your 1-year-old boy? What should we make sure to have on his wishlist?

Love the idea of the Blind browser for testing non-retina displays; it's getting easy to be used to retina on a ton of devices, but it's important to support a wide variety of users -- now they just need one for tablet and phone!
You're a web developer. You use a retina display. You want to see what your site looks like on a 1x display. Introducing Blind. Run Blind concurrently with your normal browser to see what your site looks like in 1x resolution. Safari has a 'low-resolution mode,' but it doesn't accurately ...

These gorgeous new ads make me hungry. Good job, McDonalds!
 
McDonald's figures it needs only the product, not the branding, in striking new ads: http://adweek.it/16oLipS

Satire, but the good kind of satire where it's actually kind of true. Should think more about some of this while making sites!
This is a motherfucking website. And it's fucking perfect. Seriously, what the fuck else do you want? You probably build websites and think your shit is special. You think your 13 megabyte paralax-ative home page is going to get you some fucking Awwward banner you can glue to the top corner of ...

Scary form error messages can cause abandonment. Here's some best practices to avoid that fate for your forms.
 
How to Make Your Form Error Messages More Reassuring

Filling out web forms isn’t always an easy task. No matter how simple you make your form, users will make mistakes. When these mistakes happen, do your form error messages give users a feeling of worry or comfort? Error messages that are too alarming can make users abandon the form to seek safety from the unknown. Error messages that reassure users can make it easy for them to correct their mistakes and continue with the form. The form design techniques below will help make your error messages more reassuring so that users feel comfortable completing your form.

These types of details can make a huge difference in your business. Dot your Is and cross your Ts and make sure your error messaging is something that reduces friction instead of increasing it.

Just because you can add a feature, doesn't mean you should. Like, for instance, bluetooth remote control for your toilet.
Free app lets anyone remotely harass toilet's occupant, run up water bill.
