What does DevOps mean

For Your Eyes Only

Even though the sensational James Bond (007) spy film “For Your Eyes Only” was a spectacular hit, grossing $195.3 million worldwide, this post has very little to do with surveillance or spying but merely emphasizes on the visual effect of a website as also how graphics greatly help improve user experience on the World Wide Web.

Ifs and Buts of Website Images

Have you ever wondered why cameras are now installed in most mobile phones? The reason is pretty simple. While verbal communication through a mobile phone proves most convenient, images taken through it tells the full story. Moreover, technology has so simplified the use of a camera  that anyone can take excellent shots of moving or stationary object through a camera phone.
