In the latest days I worked on websites optimizations for iPhone and iPad. I found some tips that can be useful and I want to share it.
You can detect if the device viewing your site is an iPad, iPhone or iPod using this code:
CSS3 Gradient Generator it’s a simple website that let you generate gradient color to use in your site.
You can change two color and automatically will be generate your gradient, letting you choose the gradient direction.

HTML4 and CSS2 currently support media-dependent style sheets tailored for different media types. For example, a document may use sans-serif fonts when displayed on a screen and serif fonts when printed. ‘screen’ and ‘print’ are two media types that have been defined. Media queries extend the functionality of media types by allowing more precise labeling of style sheets.
A media query consists of a media type and zero or more expressions that check for the conditions of particular media features. Among the media features that can be used in media queries are ‘width’, ‘height’, and ‘color’. By using media queries, presentations can be tailored to a specific range of output devices without changing the content itself.
“Responsive Web Design (RWD) essentially indicates that a web site is crafted to use W3C CSS3 media queries with fluid proportion-based grids, to adapt the layout to the viewing environment, and probably also flexible images. As a result, users across a broad range of devices and browsers will have access to a single source of content, laid out so as to be easy to read and navigate with a minimum of resizing, panning and scrolling.”

Sometimes happens that you need to create a banner image. In internet there are a lot of photo archive websites with beautifull images, but you need to pay for them.
For this reason I created this list of free photo archive websites:
