Mobile web development, also known as responsive web design, is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). A site designed with RWD adapts the layout to the viewing environment by using fluid, proportion-based grids, flexible images, and CSS3 media queries.

Problems and backups.

I post here somewhat frequently (frequently enough to have broken the iPhone Mobile App).

There is a distinct correlation between "I have a big problem"  and  "I have no backup"  

/me scratches head in absolute wonderment.

And it seems there is another correlation between "I have a big problem" and "I use really old software"

Even Windows 7 (yes we have lots left to upgrade yet) is now very long in the tooth.

4 Important SEO Steps for Every Small Business Website

SEO can seem like a daunting process for many small business owners. You may not be sure what the most important SEO steps are for you to take. That depends upon your business’ goals, however, we do think that these 5 important SEO steps can help every small business.

Up the +1 and Like – Lots of small businesses use WordPress plugins and Facebook content boxes and such to make their blog posts easier. With the emphasis that search engines are placing on social signals, one way to get even more social juice is to add the native Google +1 button and the native Facebook Like or Share button to the main or secondary header sections on every page of your site. This way you can increase the odds of your homepage and other core pages accumulating more social signals over time. It’s easy to add this content to your webpages. You can get the code for the Google +1 button and Facebook button by clicking on the appropriate links.

Embed larger images. This isn’t technically an SEO move, but it can add to better engagement on social networks which will help your SEO. In fact, social signals are becoming crucial to improve your SEO. A recent Facebook redesign places a lot of emphasis on images on pages by displaying them fully across a post – if they meet certain size guidelines. The enlarged images make your post stand out on mobile devices as well as laptops and should be something you …

Best Ways To Get Smarter With Your Content And SEO

Despite the many ways Google has changed the search game over the last five years, one truth remains: content is the vehicle that drives your consumer interactions, engagements, experiences and, ultimately, conversions.

However, only 41 percent of marketers think their organization is clear on what an effective or successful content marketing program looks like, according to the Content Marketing Institute (CMI).

Marketers aren’t just lacking confidence in their efforts; these are real and measurable deficits. In fact, only 20 percent of B2C and 50 percent of B2B content earns any engagement at all, my company’s research has found.

That’s a lot of wasted effort and resources invested in content that ends up just floating around the web, winning zero business benefit for its creators.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at content through the SMART lens. SMART is a goal-setting framework in which S stands for Specific, M for measurable, A for achievable, R for relevant and T for timely.

Below is my variation that explains how to apply search engine optimization (SEO) to your content within a SMART framework, giving you 14 concrete ways to make your marketing more effective and to win you more business.

S — Specific Content Wins Every Time
Content is not about what your marketing team wants to say. It is about providing insight and information that your audience actually wants to hear.

content-marketing.jpg2 Brands That Rock Content Marketing

Modern web users are always searching for new content to consume. From hot new startups to big businesses, everyone has to provide valuable content to engage their customers and keep them hooked in order to get visibility for their brand and also to stay relevant. Brands that are fully invested in content marketing are the ones driving conversions with informative and interactive content hubs, winning social media presences and use of innovative new technologies. They are the brands pushing the boundaries with their content marketing campaigns, always creating something fresh and inventive to capture audience attention and boost awareness.

Most SMBs look at the powerful content marketing efforts of large enterprises and mistakenly think they don’t have the digital resources to succeed with content themselves. When the reality is that it is possible for any business to succeed with content marketing, provided it has the right strategy in place. We can all learn from the best, so let’s take a look at two examples of top brands with killer content marketing sites.

Starbucks

With widely adopted mobile apps, and massive social audiences, Starbucks concentrates on social media branding that expertly expresses what the brand is all about. Starbucks does use posts to advertise products but it is done rather subtly and always with a lot of personality and originality. But the brand’s social channels are more …

I agree that the iPhone X is much more futuristic and awesome than the 8, but the 8 is hardly unnecessary. It costs a decent amount less and is still a great smartphone! If Apple only sold the iPhone X, they'd be cutting out a lot of potential customers that aren't willing to spend that much.

Whenever I think of tech that was way ahead of its time, the first thing to come to mind is always the Apple Newton. If you're not familiar with the Newton, imagine an iPhone, but existing in the mid 90's. As one of the first handheld computers, it was innovative and had tremendous potential—but a variety of issues such as the size, cost, and technical limitations caused its demise.

Considering the astronomical success of the iPhone, it's clear that many of the Newton's concepts were solid; we just needed to wait 10 years for the technology to be capable of delivering on the vision. Which is why I think it's the poster child for tech that was way ahead of its time.

Consumer Credit Reporting Agency Equifax Suffers Cyberattack Affecting 143 Million Customers

Equifax announced hackers gained access to sensitive company data that potentially compromised information for 143 million American consumers, including Social Security numbers, driver’s license information, and credit card details. This is the third major cybersecurity incident for the agency since 2015. Most concerning, Equifax knew of the breach on June 29 but waited until September 7 to disclose the information.

Instagram Hack Exposes Millions of Accounts
A group of hackers recently gained access to a large number of Instagram accounts for high-profile celebrities and other victims. The attackers were able to use an exploit in the Insta app to retrieve the email addresses and phone numbers for millions of account holders. They then used this information to take control of more valuable accounts and posted the credentials for sale on the dark web. While Instagram was quick to fix the bug, it is still unclear just how many accounts were compromised.

Phone Battery Life
Subject of the week | Describe past technologies you miss.
Here's something I miss: good battery life on my mobile phone. I remember my old Nokia cell phones and how I'd get to measure battery life in days. Those things could go a week straight with no charging needed! Whereas my iPhone pretty much needs to be charged nightly. Granted, I still think the extra capabilities are a good trade-off, but I keep hoping we can manage to get battery tech improved to the point where modern smartphones can have battery life comparable to older cell phones.

Think we'll get there, or will the demands of smartphone power usage keep increasing such that battery life continues to stay put?

My first was a Nokia and that thing could manage to go 5 days without a charge. It could even play Snake! Sure, I still wouldn't go back to that over my iPhone, but don't you think an iPhone with more than 2 days life would be nice? Imagine not having to take chargers with you for weekend trips!

It would be nice for sure but it has never happened.

I can get by with just a USB cable because my ThinkPad now and the one before (spare) have always ON USB ports so I can carry a 45-watt AC adapter (tiny adapter) and charge both my laptop and phone.

On average, how many apps do you download a month? If your answer is "zero," you're with the majority.

I'm also curious to see how people feel about the top apps used by age range. For my bracket, I regularly use 5 out of the top 8 on my phone, but tend to have a lot more apps installed on my tablet.

I download tons of them so couldn't say with any accuracy how many a month.. but (and that's a big BUT) how long those apps get to stay on my device is a totally different story :)

I'm a bit of a gadget freak, so if I see something on the Apple App Store for my iPhone or Ipad that catches my eye for some reason, I'm highly likely to download and check it out. That said, unless I think I'll be using it very often, it generally won't last on my device for longer than 30 to 60 minutes as my curiosity about it would have been satisfied.  I currently have about a dozen apps I frequently use on my iPhone.. a few more on my iPad.  The most used app on both would have to be Audible Listener (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/audible-audio-books-original-series-podcasts/id379693831?mt=8) App because I'm an avid audio book listener and I buy > 90% of the books I own from audible.com

The next app that will probably get used a lot is Transcend's "JetDrive Go" which gives me lots of options for the JetDrive 128GB additional storage iPhone/USB stick I recently purchased. Movies and audio books tend to take up a LOT of space and yes, my phone is already a 128 GB model 7 .. if they came larger than that I'd have definitely bought that instead. I'm always running low on space! lol :)

When looking for a particular type software to do something I'll probably download 5 or 6 if not more, but most will be deleted within 5 minutes
Apart from that in general maybe 1 a month on average. Generally speaking I know the app I'm looking to download be it a bank app, radio app or whatever.
Now when it comes to games, different story, downloaded so many to be just disappointed by what they are - try Temple Run, frustratingly annoying game but addictive (probably shouldn't be plugging it but it's free)

If you haven't switched to the latest plan with your carrier, you might be overpaying / being gouged.  Earlier this year I investigated what Verizon had to offer and found out I was paying waaaay too much money.  After collaborating with family members we got 5 of us signed up under one plan and are saving hundreds of dollars a month now.  Family plans save $$$ folks.  And the plan differences between each carrier are not that drastic either.  Verizon and AT&T reign supreme.  Yes, more money, but you have superior service over the cheaper carriers.  Whoever is your carrier, do yourself a favor and take the time to see if you're overpaying and switch plans asap.

I think we're paying about $150 for 3 phones on the unlimited plan, but I'd have to double check.  We could be on some old pricing promo, too.

I think AT&T was also advocating for Net Neutrality's removal, but they didn't spend anywhere near as much as Verizon and Comcast.

I usually don't stream videos unless I'm on wifi.  I did this a lot when I didn't have Verizon's Unlimited plan.  Old habits die hard I guess.  I like how this was phrased
But this plan led to more pressure on the network and increased costs. So the company had to do something to turn this great consumer-friendly idea into a viable business venture.
ohshi we messed up and now its costing us too much money!!!! Can we take this back!?  Oh yes, of course we can, we're Verizon and we tell everyone how it is like big cable companies.

Oh man, I hope they didn't lower it to 5mph.  I hadn't heard that on Silph Road yet.  Last I remember folks there were saying the speed cap was 11mph.  People who use bicycles for transportation were throwing a fit about the 11mph.  

It does a check every 2-5 minutes, and bases how far you go off of that.
Yes, exactly.  There was a glitch I ran into, and others confirmed it as well, that there is a way to incubate eggs in the time that the calculations are being made where all of a sudden the eggs would hatch (2.0km ones) without even being walked!  I think they eventually patched that.

I also have the problem where my connection switches between 3g and LTE so often that it's always getting disconnected and not registering the location changes as often as it should.  So half the time (or more) when it tries to do that location check it doesn't register any changes.  It seems to know where I am on the map, but it's losing its log of how far I've gone or something.

I was running long distances (1-3 miles) in a straight line and barely getting 1k before I stopped playing.

Subject of the week | What are your favorite smartphone apps?
Well, the Experts Exchange app, of course! But I may be a bit biased ;-)

If I factor out that bias, then my favorite iOS apps—in no particular order—are:
  • Music
  • Podcasts
  • Maps
  • Messages (I vastly prefer a text to a phone call.)
  • Runkeeper (For tracking my running. I've tried many different running apps, but settled in on this one as my favorite. Has a lot of great features and excellent Apple Watch support.)
  • Flipboard (News aggregator with some really nice UI.)
  • Snapseed (Photo editing)
  • Flickr (Photography community)
  • Mint (Money management)
  • Kindle (For eBooks. I generally prefer using this on my iPad, but I'll occasionally use it on my iPhone too if I don't have the iPad with me.)
  • Flixster (Movie showtimes)
  • Hue (For controlling the Phillips Hue smart lightbulbs in my house)
  • Facebook (The app I love to hate. Great for staying in touch with friends, but often risks wasting too much time.)
