Hallelujah. I know the rest of the world doesn't face the same data limits we do here, but for those on mobile 1gb/mo plans, they can get caught out big time when there isn't a mobile stripped down version. Plus so many websites today break. I can't count the number of times I've had to shift to a different, less secure, browser in order to read or act on a website, such as subscribe to something they have on offer to increase their traffic. Drives me freeking nuts.

Of course it doesn't differentiate the skills needed by developers, so they'll want to continue to play "look at me!' games. There should be a reward for those who use elegant code instead of whizbang.

Sooner or later, I hate to break it to you, you're gonna die, so how do you fill in the space between here and there? It's yours. Seize your space.
