Screws Head Style Drive Types Washer Type Nut Types by Part 3: Mobile Website Optimisation - 7 Considerations When Designing Buttons on Mobile Websites This is the third post in a series on optimising mobile websites for conversions. The previous two posts covered Content Prioritisation and White Space.In Summary: Buttons rule on mobile devices. The rule of thumb means that big, well spaced buttons with clear calls to action will likely result in more conversions.Before looking at how buttons can make the mobile user experience better we must first understand the way mobile users navigate. Think about the way you hold your phone. More often than not it’s in just one hand and because your fingers are gripping the phone from behind, you are left only with your thumb for navigation of the screen. As you can see from this image, fingers are behind the phone leaving the thumb to do all the work. The Mobile Rule of Thumb: If it cannot be done with the thumb, it cannot be done.The hyperlink is a poor user experience on a touchscreen mobile device because it is very hard to use with an imprecise instrument like the human thumb.

О том, как рисовать кривые графики в стиле XKCD Недавно я публиковал статью на Хабре про гитарный тюнер, и многих заинтересовали анимированные графики которые я использовал для иллюстрации звуковых волн, в том числе технология создания таких графиков. Поэтому в этой статье я поделюсь своим подходом и библиотечкой на Node.js которая поможет строить подобные графики. Предыстория Зачем делать графики кривыми? Вообще, идея создания кривых графиков идет из академической культуры — не только российской, но и мировой. Этот подход, когда даже довольно сложная научная информация иллюстрируется небрежными графиками является довольно распространенной практикой. Именно на этом нюансе создаются комиксы XKCD, юмор которых базируется на простых зависимостях интерпретируемых в некоторой необычной манере: Небрежность в графиках позволяет сместить внимание с количественной оценки, на качественную, что в свою очередь способствует лучшему восприятию новой информации.

Nathan Chantrell - The The Pronto's IR Code Format (1) Barry Gordon The following page was printed from This document describes the format of learned IR codes as they are displayed in ProntoEdit program. It is assumed that the reader has a working familiarity with the Philips Pronto remote control and the ProntoEdit software system. Acknowledgments: This document could not have been possible for me to write without the assistance of a lot of people who contributed their time and effort to helping me understand the various parts of the ProntoEdit IR display format. I would like to thank; AHP (A Helpful Person), Jack Schultz, Manu Duarte, Timm, CDecker, and others. Please pardon my use of the BBS handles, but in many cases that is the only way I know them.
