HTML 5 – Getting An Overview Of The Spec

I don’t do a lot of HTML work directly anymore but am of course curious about what is possible with the version 5 spec.  Not being interested in reading an entire tome about the history of the Web, etc… I thought I’d give HTML 5 For Web Designers by Jeremy Keith a shot.

HTML5 For Web Designers

Its a nice light yet informative read that can be downloaded from A List Apart for only $9.00.  I give it a “thumbs up”.

Death Of The Cassette Walkman On iPod’s Birthday

Not like the iPod was the real killer of the Sony Walkman (portable CD players were once everywhere) but they sure didn’t help.  Alas, on the 9th anniversary of the release of the iPod, Sony officially announced it would no longer make the cassette walkman.

I’ve had several including the very first Sanyo one I’d gotten as a kid.  Big orange headphones, giant “portable” cassette player with a built in AM FM radio.  It was revolutionary.  AM radio, are you next?
