In today’s modern society, with the ever growing amount of information I find many people are turning to “To do” applications to keep track of all the little things they need to get done in their lives. I’m told they are a God-send; that they couldn’t live without them, or that they don’t know where… Continue reading Do you do To do?
I’ve designed loads of forms in my time, some for collecting random data, some for logging in, and some for user sign up. I usually employ form validation to make sure it’s a valid email, and a valid phone number etc, but I never check the password (unless it’s for length).

Well have you? Be honest, have you ever heard of Robert Noyce? It seems odd today that such an influential person could be forgotten. Robert Noyce was one of the founders of Intel, a mentor to Steve Jobs, and overall, a realy nice guy.
So, ten years have passed and with them some amazing things have happened. Technology has changed the face of the world in the past 10 years and has changed almost beyond recognition.
