As we refine our methods of responsive web design, we’ve increasingly focused on measure (another word for “line length”) and its relationship to how people read.
Sound advice, although I must admit I don’t follow the “max 75 characters per line” rule religiously.
On Monday, Audi announced that next month in Munich it will be teaming up with Amazon and German logistics company DHL to run a pilot program to make parcel deliveries to an Audi owner’s car trunk. The idea behind the program is that if a delivery person tries to leave a package at a person’s home, there’s a good chance the recipient won’t be there and the package will have to go back to the processing facility. If the delivery person tries to take a package to a person’s car, he or she can use keyless access to that trunk to leave it there securely.
This is a great example of thinking outside the box. Genius.
During this peaceful Easter holiday, I’ve been thinking about how much time (cumulatively) I’ve spent tinkering with the HTML and CSS used on this site. I haven’t kept count, but it must be in the hundreds, if not thousands, of hours. I’m never 100 per cent happy with the results, but I guess for people who care even remotely about the appearance of a product, that’s normal.
I wish everyone a great holiday.
All good ones—Marr Sans is my personal favourite.
