You learn something new everyday – if all goes well. Today is a good day because I just learned about some css units I didn’t know about. We all know pixels (px) and ems (em) and percent (%). But id you know about viewport height (vh) and viewport width (vw)? Interesting stuff in Jonathan Cutrell’s article called 7 CSS Units You Might Not Know About.

A look back at Apple’s first portable computer

Notice I said portable computer in the title and not notebook or even laptop? That’s because the Macintosh Portable was 16 pounds and 4 inches thick. At $6,500 in 1989 (or $12,488.91 in 2014 dollars) it wasn’t cheap either.
