2013-06-07: Why your click events don't work on Mobile Safari

Posted at 2013-06-07 00:33:10 by SHD

After ensuring that your newly created website works great on all desktop browsers, you put in the effort to make the site responsive. Everything is spot on with any of the Android browsers, but then you test on iOS/Mobile Safari and some of your click events aren't registering. Why is that? In my most recent project, I've encountered two different causes for this. Oddly enough, neither has anything to do with JavaScript, but CSS is the culprit. While one of them might be by design, the other is most definitely a bug, in my opinion. Since Mobile Safari is hell to debug (especially since in iOS 6, the developer console was removed and the only way to debug is by using desktop Safari, which isn't even available for Windows any more — probably a good thing, as the Windows versions were utter crap), it took ages to find the cause of this and I figured I'd spare you the trouble. Here's what happens and how to fix it.

2011-06-02: Microsoft demo of Windows 8, UI opinions

Posted at 2011-06-02 16:30:06 by SHD

After being very tight-lipped about their plans for the next version of Windows, Microsoft have now officially given the first demos of the the next generation of Windows, called "Windows 8" for now. It is a mix of the live tiles from Windows Phone 7's "Metro UI" and the traditional Windows 7 UI. Everybody and their uncle will have an opinion on this. Here's mine. What I've seen leaves me with mixed feelings. As a casual tablet user, I'm loving it. As a deskop PC worker and power user, it fills me with dread.

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.

2009-12-28: iTunes missing settings for importing and burning CDs and DVDs

Apple make some really nice hardware and maybe the software they create for the Mac is good, but their Windows developers must be complete morons. Although I think iTunes for Windows is probably the second-worst piece of software ever to be released, I do occasionally use it when I have to transfer music to my iPod. For a while now, it had been throwing up this error message an error message about how "the registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning CDs and DVDs are missing".
