TWIL - Week #36

This Week I Learned:

Azure

+ If you’re the Account Administrator for a Windows Azure subscription, you can set up email alerts when a subscription reaches a spending threshold you choose. Alerts are currently not available for subscriptions associated with a commitment plan.

HTML5

Without having to resort to JavaScript, you can create a "zebra table" using the :nth-child CSS pseudo class:
table {width: 100%;}
tr:nth-child(even) {
    background: peachpuff;
}

Everything else

Google's Safe Browsing Lookup API is an experimental API that enables applications to simply look up URLs from our Safe Browsing service and get the state of URLs (e.g. phishing, malware) directly.

+ If you thought the world doesn't know about your phone number & Twitter alias, you may be mistaken. TrueCaller is a mobile app that will show you the name of a caller that's not already on your mobile contact list. Due to Truecaller's partnership with Twitter, Truecaller users in India will be able to see if a number is connected with a Twitter account, and will be able to tweet or follow a person directly through the Truecaller app.

+ The TED-Ed Video series pairs extraordinary educators with talented animators to produce educational videos.

Just under 66 percent of the Tata group’s profits go to charity. Mumbai is now home to nine of the 15 richest Indians and has the world’s seventh-highest concentration of high-net-worth individuals. Source: Forbes

+ A Rube Goldberg machine, contraption, invention, device, or apparatus is a deliberately over-engineered or overdone machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg (1883–1970). The National Cartoonist Society's top award, the Reuben, is named after him. He drew 50,000 cartoons over a 72-year period. Source: USA Today
