"The team behind the London Eye has unveiled plans to transform Brighton's skyline with the loftiest building in Sussex."
"Soaring above any other building on the seafront, the 600ft tower is expected to attract more than 500,000 visitors a year."
"The tower would be almost twice as tall as the current highest building in Brighton, Sussex Heights, but would have less visual impact because it would be just four metres wide."
"Architects David Marks and Julia Barfield call the proposed tower the i360 but it is likely locals will nickname it the Brighton Eye."
I think that seems a little unlikely.
The eye is not precisely the body part that comes to mind in connection with a huge tower on Brighton's seafront.

Dissecting the Skype binary to figure out what it's doing.
This is an utterly evil bit of software -- and I mean that in the "don't allow this on your machine, ever" sort of way...
(Some neat Python-based debugging tricks in there, too.)

"[...] our text fields are now able to use many useful css capabilities that weren?t available before. Border-radius, border-image, and background-image are just a few that will now work with our text fields."
Erm, why's that a good idea, precisely?
Apple _love_ inconsistant UI design.
