Well, if you heard your comment read back to you, would you still post it, with all its grammar and spelling errors? Perhaps not. YouTube has added an audio preview feature to its comments. They didn't publicize it, so we only happened to notice it as we were going to comment on a video myself (which we don't do that often). You can see it below. Our guess is, the lack of publicity is because: they didn't think of it themselves. As a friend... Read more...

If an image is worth a thousand words, what are a thousand images worth? What they're not worth is your time waiting for them to load on a Web page. While the Web is primarily a visual medium, the more image-heavy a Web page becomes, the longer it takes to load before you can see its entire contents. Even pages with just a few images can take a seemingly inordinate amount of time to load if the images aren't properly optimized for Web viewing. Everyone from professional Web page designers to casual bloggers walk the delicate line between including relevant content on a page and causing download... Read more...
