Nike introduces a new style of uniform to the NFL

One of my childehood and teenage design secrets was a strong desire to design uniforms for imaginary team, as well as, teams I played for in elementary school and high school. Because it bordered on the line of “fashion designer” I never really shared this interest with friends but my family saw drawings laying around my room of various uniform designs during the 70’s! It definitely wasn’t the creativeness of the Nike designers, but I’m sure I would have been on the cutting edge of many of the recent college and pro teams of this decade! Wish I could find some of those old sketches for memory sake.

Take a look at the new NFL uniforms coming out this year for the Dolphins and the Vikings!

HTML5: The future of the Web is finally here

HTML5, the long-in-the-works update to the language that powers the Web, is “feature complete,” according to an announcement made Monday by the standards-setting Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C). There’s still some testing to be done, and it hasn’t yet become an official Web standard — that will come in 2014. But there won’t be any new features added to HTML5, which means Web designers and app makers now have a “stable target” for implementing it, W3C said.

Samsung Galaxy S III mini pops up, we go hands-on (video) — Engadget

When word first started trickling out that Samsung planned to make a mini version of the Galaxy S III, it had the air of plausibility — we’ve heard from many a person about the too-large size of that phone for their hands. Then, a press invitation confirmed that “something small” was in the works, and finally mobile chief JK Shin confirmed that a smartphone of that name would be announced today in Frankfurt, Germany.

Now Samsung’s spilled all the beans, and revealed the new Galaxy S III mini, a slightly paler version of its bigger brother in specs as well as screen size. Our own short time with the phone certainly revealed that its pushing all the same “inspired by nature” buttons of the original Galaxy S III (and the Galaxy Note II), with the same exact rounded pebble shape and layout. The marketing rep we spoke to from Germany said that the company’s research found that users wanted the same phone design as the 4.8-inch Galaxy S III, but in a smaller form factor — to more easily fit smaller hands and pockets. Samsung said those folks don’t necessarily need or want the most powerful phone they can get their hands on and are content to have those mid-level specs — 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, a 4-inch, WVGA AMOLED screen and 32GB max of memory.
