A handy tutorial regarding how to fix broken form label clicks on the iPad's version of Safari.A handy tutorial regarding how to fix broken form label clicks on the iPad's version of Safari.

Decided to post this here after reading a tweet from Dan Cederholm (of SimpleBits fame) and realizing this wasn't an issue isolated to me and me alone.  Backstory: I wrestled with this issue for a good amount of time on a recently completed project and then decided to just give up making it work. Now, with a little bit of jQuery fun you can have your forms lables working as they should on your beloved iPad (and I can check off an item on my bug list).

As usual, another quality post from the folks over at Smashing Magazine. I have to admit that I'm guilty of still not knowing some of the tidbits contained in this article despite (for all intensive purposes) this being my career for quite some time. How irresponsible is that?

Enjoy the emulator while you can because Nintendo probably isn't going to be a fan of this little baby. Anyone know if this works on the Wii's Internet Channel? That would be like something out of The Twilight Zone.

New wave of SQL injection attacks carrying venemous JavaScript along for the ride.New wave of SQL injection attacks carrying venemous JavaScript along for the ride.

Once infected, the sites deliver <IFRAME> code to their users that starts the download of executable binary code, and apparently even launches that code.

This is quite neat, even seems to work pretty well in IE6 (if you disregard the lack of PNG support that is). I heart jQuery.
