My otherwise portable and standards compliant code is gradually filling with iOS specific hacks because Apple knows best.

I'm working on the rewrite of Tar Heel Reader and testing it on desktop, iPad, iPod Touch, and IE6-8. I hate manual steps in my edit/test loop. The i* devices are particularly bothersome because I push my changes, pick up the device, hit the home button to wake it up, slide-to-unlock, and then hit the tiny refresh button. There had to be a better way.
I'm redesigning Tar Heel Reader in hopes of taking load off the server and making the site friendlier to tablets and phones. Over the last few weeks I did a mockup with jQuery Mobile that works well enough on mobile devices but it was just kludged into the current system and it didn't work at all on IE6. So, I've decided to back up and rethink things.
Nice replacement for DataGrid.
Interesting comparison of App stores to other options along with a proposal for how to do it right.

This is a really good read about measuring product improvement.
Nice! This could be a great way to get translations for Hark the Sound and Tar Heel Reader.
Great idea for making layout change with screen size.
