Creative Christmas Gift For Geek Lovers – Web & Mobile App

Posted in News, Web Design3 years ago • Written by

Oh, Christmas. The magic time when you spend all the money you’ve been saving the whole year. Oh, and we have all that Christmas Spirit, of course.

Now, you probably want to spend a lot on your soul mate’s gift, to show her how deep is your love.

Yeah, money can buy cool things, but guess what: almost every year I make my own gifts for my girlfriend (but I always have to buy something else anyway). And I feel that she just loves when I do something by myself instead of just buying it (unless shoes, she wouldn’t like if I made her a shoe). So I’ll show you, dear Padawan, how to make a cool one-page-gift for anybody that you like.

Our goal here is to do a simple “slider”, where a lot of messages and pictures that you like are shown. In the meantime you’ll learn a little bit about design, jQuery and CSS3.

So, let’s rock!

However, what the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate have planned for their respective bills is not a way of just putting a halt on online piracy. Tech giants such as Mozilla and Google who once supported these bills, now are on the offensive in trying to ensure they never get passed. Before going any further into how this affects the everyday internet users, let’s first get a good understanding about both bills.

Today’s topic is very important, being able to find new article ideas is crucial for any blogging business because we function the same way as magazines do – people come back to us because of the content, of course there are other things, but let’s face it, without the content they wouldn’t come back.
