The situation is definitely not completely clear yet because Google hasn’t made any official statements on the matter. Since Goolge’s own Android mobile platform supports Flash this new policy is interesting, and appears to cater the growing market of iPhone and iPad users.
Dallas Web design & development company Interaria follows the developments of AdWord policy closely. Interaria specializes in coding websites that are “Google-friendly”.
While doing a thorough spring cleaning and sorting to our office cabinets, we found this interesting, revealing article from September 1996 issue of “MacUser”. On the cover the magazine advertises the fastest Mac or PC ever, 225 MHZ PowerTower Pro. To give some context, today computers are built in the range of several GHz.
On page 99, MacUser shows easy steps to create an “Instant Home Page” with basic proportional images (that would not break the layout structure) and text information. The article mentions Adobe PageMill 1.0 as the most popular Mac website creation tool of the time and that PageMill 1.0 was not capable of using tables for layout or for image maps. Over the last decade there’s been a movement towards table-free layouts and instead utilizing CSS for layout and styling, so it’s almost hard to recount a time when using tables for a layout was something new and technically advanced.
The key elements of a web page were already there in 1996: According to the article, the key content areas of a Web page are “info that let visitors to get to know you, links to other Web sites, and a way to contact you via e-mail”. The magazine also recommends a visitor counter as a “fancy twist” which does not sound like a bad idea at all considering how much emphasis is put today on “invisible” visitor traffic tracking metrics tools.
Web page development started in 1994 so by 1996 the user could already display images to the web page making them a great deal more visual. On the other hand, navigation for instance remained HTML link based and button shapes were available but made very little use of until a year later in 1997.
1996 may have felt a big step from the very early ages of World Wide Web back in 1994 when very few people were aware of this emerging technology and communication platform. Here is a popular YouTube video of NBC news team discussing Web terminology back in 1994. The terminology is new and the Internet is still something abstract and rather geeky sounding.
As many of you may know, Dallas Web Design Company Interaria is a REGISTERED iOS Apple developer. Our love for the iPhone manifests on and off work. Below are our favorite iPhone apps that we find useful, entertaining and occasionally even practical.
1) Polytune iPhone App
PolyTune is an innovate tool to use for tuning your guitar. Unlike other guitar tuners, PolyTune let’s you strum all strings at once to tune rather than needing to go string by string. Our top reasons why we like Polytune iPhone App:
$4.99 (OK, we can pay this)
Innovative tool because when strumming once all strings at the same time and getting feedback on all strings at once, you can then tune faster by tuning more than one string per interval.
Gives an immediate visual indication as to how in tune the guitar is as a whole, rather than the string by string approach.
Often times you know from playing that one string alone might be slightly out, and this tool is a great way to quickly identify which string is out verses going string by string.
2) Verizon FiOS DVR Manager iPhone App
If Verizon FiOS is your tv service provider, and you use their DVR service too, you can use this app to schedule recordings and manage available recording space on your DVR. Our top reasons why we like Verizon FiOS DVR Manager iPhone App:
Free (only works with Verizon FiOS DVR)
Managing DVR is easier and faster from app than from the tv interface (which is a horrible experience by comparison)
If you’re out and about and forgot to record a show, app makes it easy to update from anywhere
3) Find My iPhone App
If you have two iPhones on the same .me account, Find My iPhone is a handy way to track one with the other. Our top reasons why we like Find My iPhone App:
Free (unlike the AT&T and many other GPS tracking service)
If you lose an iPhone or lose a person with an iPhone (such as at a large mall), this app comes in very handy.
Doesn’t require the iPhone being tracked to grant permission to be tracked, unlike other GPS tracking services
4) Ebay iPhone App
The eBay application for the iPhone is specially designed to run natively on the Apple iPhone and the iPod Touch. Using a streamlined interface that’s as elegant as it is practical, eBay members can search, bid, and check their activity on the go. Our top reasons why we like Ebay iPhone App:
Easy to use and so convenient
Great tool to place bids when on the go
If you are a seller, this app provides the basic tools to keep track of your listings and their status.
Ebay also offers a special app for sellers. It is still little tricky to use. Listing items via iPhone is possible but the visual control is not quite there yet. We would still recommend traditional methods for listing items.
5) Trivial Pursuit iPhone App
PLAY FOR THE PURSUIT OF FUN! Show off what you know in this contemporary version of the classic board game. Our top reasons why we like Trivial Pursuit iPhone App:
If you get annoyed with by slow family members who take forever to roll the dice, count the steps, take out the question card (from the wrong side), then place it wrongly back to the deck…then this app is for you.
Makes playing easy to start, and in a way is a more quiet way to play. We’ve noticed that it is easy to play a round at a coffee break
The app let’s you choose questions from multiple type of packs (easy, medium, senior, encyclopedia etc.)
The downside is that the questions start repeating after awhile… or maybe we’ve just played too many rounds
Hyperscale cloud platforms from the likes of Amazon, Microsoft and Google are great for running the kind of high-performance computing (HPC) projects that scientists in academia and the industry need for their simulations and analyses. Many of the workloads they run are, after all, easily parallelized across hundreds or thousands of machines. Often, though, the […]

Contrary to how it may seem, 2018 in Hollywood is not just about sequels, prequels, reboots, and returns to the same cinematic universes. There are a ton of original stories being made into films that have already proved themselves as successful or acclaimed books. Studios love that safety net, after all. From brutal thrillers to […]

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs has something to say about the ugly allure of xenophobia, the sin of standing by while atrocities are committed, and the importance of protecting the most vulnerable members of society. The film asks us to feel for the helpless, here in the form of guileless dogs, and consider how easily […]
Elon Musk just deleted SpaceX's and Tesla's Facebook pages. At first we thought the Instagram-obsessed billionaire was joking or, as someone would say, trolling. But Musk got himself involved in the #DeleteFacebook movement, in the wake of a data privacy issue involving Cambridge Analytica, and actually followed through.
