Don’t Have A Mobile Site? You’re Late. Not Using HTML5? You’re Behind. The Answer? foneFrame!
SEATTLE - Mobile web pages and HTML5? Yes. Web sites for smartphones like Android and iPhone? Done. Creative Commons, open source, and free? Yep, free as in “beer”. foneFrame, a free mobile web framework, now has a new template. [ foneFrame.com/fF/ ]
"Why struggle with HTML5? You know you want to use it but can’t seem to find the time to master it. foneFrame begins with HTML5 and CSS3 and builds out from there. It’s foolish *not* to use foneFrame." says Jerry Whiting, Azalea Software Inc.’s Pres & CEO. "I found the sweet spot between Android and iPhone to be elusive at best. I’m glad to share my learning curve with you because there’s no faster way to jumpstart a new web project than by using a template. That’s why the foneFrame template is free under the Creative Commons license. We *want* you to edit, change, improve, hack, and mashup it up!"
As opposed to other web templates that are merely static boilerplate you replace, the foneFrame template includes valuable information about SEO (search engine optimization), metadata, and has examples of how to embed Google Maps, Google Calendars, and Twitter feeds into mobile pages. The styles defined in the stylesheet can be mixed and matched to format a wide variety of page layouts.
Other features include:
- the basic framework elements are hosted in the cloud for reduced latency
- a library of basic buttons and icons
- a basic photo gallery with thumbnail navigation
- lots and lots of comments in the code that explain how foneFrame works
SEATTLE - JetCityOrange now offers a suite of online encryption and cryptography tools. [ JetCityOrange.com/crypto ] JetCityOrange’s web-based tools provide encryption using the Blowfish algorithm, as well as SHA-256 hashes, and Hash-based Message Authentication Codes (HMAC).
Encryption - Protect your data with Blowfish, a cipher designed by noted cryptographer Bruce Schneier as a DES replacement. JetCityOrange’s online encryption service both encrypts and decrypts your data using long and secure passphrases.
Hashing - Create unique digital fingerprints using the SHA-256 hash algorithm. Part of the SHA-2 family of hashes, SHA-256 can be used to authenticate files and is a building block for other sophisticated cryptographic protocols.
HMAC - Hash-based Message Authentication Codes provide both proof of authorship and message integrity. Based on the secure SHA-256 hash, this HMAC gives Alice proof that Bob wrote a given message and that it hasn’t been altered. This dual authentication can be displayed publicly in the clear without compromising its security.
"I firmly believe in our right to our data. That means protecting from all those who wish to interfere in our digital affairs. Using strong cryptography plays a major role in any effort to protect yourself online (and off). How can you insure that no one has access to your data? Lock it up! How do you lock it up and sleep well at night? Use industrial strength encryption that can’t be broken. Don’t settle for anything less." says Jerry Whiting, publisher of JetCityOrange. "With JetCityOrange’s free suite of online tools, anyone and everyone has access to the best tools available. I chose Blowfish and SHA-256 because not only do they work, they’re the best at what they do."
JetCityOrange is a Seattle-based web site that features the work of Jerry Whiting. Hatched in 1999, JetCityOrange has tools and resources for nerds & geeks, resources about meditation & Buddhism, food, Seattle, travel, sound files, online dating, and lots of other stuff.
