“Redesigning your website is one of the most powerful things you can do for your company online.” With design trends changing every few years, a website that is two or three years old can easily seem outdated when compared to a competitor who has a website that is up to date with the latest design trends. An outdated website could …

Below is a preview of this site in 3D mode. Developers have been accustomed to 2D tools such as Firebug and Firefox’s own built in tools for some …

Cory Blog, Web

Over the past few months, I’ve collected useful tidbits from around the web. Information, tweaks and apps great and small- all of which are equally important but cannot hold an entire post by themselves.

Jolicloud OS Reviewed

Cory Blog, Web

These days with the expansion and tweaking of linux, operating systems are a dime a dozen. A few weeks ago, I reviewed Chrome OS, which Google built on linux, and I wrote how I was disappointed with it, mainly ’cause there’s next to nothing to it.

I …

Even at standard definition, the videos look clearer than, say, on nbc.com. The website is simple and easy to use. Of course I like their full screen ease …

Google Chrome OS Reviewed

Cory Blog, Mac, Software, Web

Google Chrome, the browser, has been out for some time. It offers a spin on browsing- a cleaner, more streamline, google way of browsing. Besides its incredible speed, the next best thing is that the address bar is also the search bar. Currently it’s only available for Windows, but if you’re Mac, you can find a preview version of it …

Use Scalable Background Image on Your Website

Cory Blog, Web

Because I basically suck at coding a sweet background to use as website background, I naturally result to Photoshop to design the image…but I get stuck at this question: “Ok, so how exactly am I going to put this image in the background and make it so it doesn’t look cropped, leaving white space around the image?” If you’ve ever …
