Danny shared his thoughts on the SxSW event with an article he posted on the BIMA blog. In his article Danny talks about the "awesome design" panel he attended which featured Jeffery Zeldman. The open debate was primarily about accessibility to content and how today’s designers have to consider a wide range of browsers, devices and app platforms.

At 5pm this evening the iPad 2 is set to hit the UK high street, as the much anticipated launch of Apple’s latest tablet device comes to Europe. The tablet comes in either a 16GB or 64GB model and includes cameras on the front and the back to allow Facetime calls. It also has a thinner design and faster processor. We won't be getting one just yet, we already have 2 of the originals...one duck who will remain nameless already has his hands on one from New York though.
This week saw the official release of Mozilla Firefox 4 after 10 beta releases and months of development on the new version. Mozilla have made promises that their latest version of Firefox will be faster than previous releases and have also produced a cool page showing where it's being downloaded across the world right now - definitely worth a look!.
Google ran another popular Google Doodle, this time marking the 137th birthday of legendary illusionist Harry Houdini. The doodle was based on posters that would have been used to announce Houdini’s shows in the time he was performing. We are big fans of the design style.
We would like to wish happy birthday to Twitter who has turned 5 earlier in the week. The popular micro-blogging site is valued at around $10 billion (£6.2 billion), and has a user base in excess of 200 million. However, Brent Hoberman, co-founder of Last Minute.com and Aleks Krotoski, social psychologist at the Oxford Internet Institute this week suggested that Twitter could go the way of the dodo!
Finally we would like to leave you with a dancing Android, which was a real hit around the office this week. Enjoy!
