Well, January has gone by and the resolutions you have made in the beginning are all thrown aside and the motivation has also decreased significantly. But still it’s the starting of a New Year and you should plan your life centering round the latest devices and apps.

I remember when I first started working with websites more than a decade ago, if you wanted a cool looking button in your form, you had to use images.

A few weeks back, we posted about the reawakening of an age old chain message that concerned Facebook users posted in an attempt to protect their privacy. I don’t think it is in response to this, but Facebook released a new feature that aims to put privacy controls more into the hands of the users instead of tucking them away into screens they won’t get through. You’ll find the new settings in the top right of your Facebook just next to your photo.
