  • Background image not appearing on mobile devices

    Spent some time trying to figure out why the background image on my site’s home page was not being displayed on mobile devices although it was appearing in a desktop browser. There are, of course, endless solutions that may or may not have worked for someone in the past. They suggested tweaking your CSS coding or adjusting the size of the image or some other voodoo. None of these worked for me.

    What worked for me was simply ensuring that the image’s colour profile was set to sRGB. Once that was changed everything worked as expected.

  • Mobile Spotify

    A demo of Spotify on an Android mobile phone.

    Perhaps once they finish that Spotify will start to iron out some of the glitches in their catalogue listings….

    Only one of these tracks is listed correctly. There are no prizes for spotting it or identifying all the tracks 😉 But…. [W:Ravens], [W:Crows]…. Near enough 🙁

    I would have reported the errors but Spotify have moved to a Get Satisfaction forum. Why would anyone think this was a good idea?
