2010-10-21: KOP Breda QR codes on the pavement

When walking through the city of Breda, where I work, I noticed a few stickers at various places on the pavement. They had QR codes printed on them. At first I thought these were just litter, but eventually checked them with the QR code reader in my phone. It turns out they are part of an art project.

2010-03-11: CSS eye-candy in mobile browsers, a comparison

Posted at 2010-03-11 18:22:33 by SHD

My current job involves a lot of web development for mobile phones. Compared to the WAP phones of 10 years ago, present day phones are like supercomputers, with browsers almost as capable as those on the desktop. The major challenge posed by designing for these devices is making sure that mobile web sites are lightweight in terms of bandwidth, easily viewable on a small screen and that the site can be navigated easily with both the four-way directional key as well as with a touchscreen. With mobile browsers catching up to desktop web browsers, I figured it would be a good time to take a look at some of the eye-candy effects that are possible with CSS2 and see what the support for these effects is across the mobile browsers.
