It's been a while since I have updated my web skills, the last time I worked on a major web project HTML5 hadn't really got off the ground enough to start using it. Several years have past now and most major browsers now support HTML5 in some shape or form, so now seems a good time to learn what extra features have been added. Tonight I thought I'd take a look at the new HTML5 Video tag.
A few years ago if you wanted a website with any kind of video content you'd be looking at using a plug-in such as Adobe Flash or Apple's Quicktime. And I don't think these plug-ins will disappear any time soon! However, there is definitely a growing number of websites looking to progress onto a web-standards HTML5 Video tag.
I have finally made the decision to order myself a Kindle Touch from Amazon and I have deliberated over this decision more than one might expect. Though I made the leap from full-time education to full-time work relatively recently* it does not mean you stop learning, and there's still much I need to learn, you cannot stop once you have a degree in your hands. But learning, for me, inevitably means buying a book; but every time I browsed the plethora available on Amazon I found myself thinking "but I could just buy that Kindle edition, it's cheaper, and electronic!" and I do love all things electronic.
