iFrame height resizing, responsive design techniques.

My current project required me to work with responsive design.  One task was to setup an iframe that was capable of dynamic height based on the contents of the iframe.  We did have a little control of the parent and the child content, and I thought this would be a pretty easy.

After some trial and error and a lot of google-fu I found a solution using easyXDM.  It seemed to work pretty well and was able to work across different browsers.  However, the solution was pretty heavy, weighing in at just over 21kb embedded on the parent site.

A coworker of mine brought up a more streamline solution that pulled out all the goodness of what easyXDM was doing and put it into a script at around 2kb.

The script uses postMessage transport for more current browsers.  Then falls back to a hash tag solution for browsers that don’t support postMessage option.

I cleaned it up and put it out on github.  Check it out and let me know what you think.

Coming Soon to a Smartphone Near You: Ubuntu

The popular open-source operating system Ubuntu is coming to smartphones.

Canonical, Ubuntu’s commercial sponsor, announced its new smartphone interface Tuesday. The company will be holding a press call later this afternoon, and showing off the OS at CES.

This isn’t Ubuntu’s first foray into devices outside of the desktop. Over the last few years, Canonical has spent time investing in Ubuntu for TV sets and building out its cloud infrastructure. Over the last 18 months, Ubuntu has shifted into integrating more touch-friendly controls and better touchscreen support into Ubuntu on the desktop.

With Ubuntu for phones, it appears that Canonical wants to offer OEMs an alternative to Android on both the high and low ends of the market. Canonical is also going to target the enterprise, where it can offer corporate customers a way to offer thin-client, PC and phone functionality from one profile.

Although manufacturers and carrier partners haven’t been announced, the company expects the first devices to ship in early 2014.

Ubuntu for phones joins Sailfish and Samsung’s Bada as operating systems looking to take on the giant that is Android.

What do you make of the Ubuntu announcement? Is there enough room in the market for another player? Let us know in the comments.

How the Internet IPOs of 2012 Fared

This was a mixed year for tech IPOs, but overall, the Internet companies who went public in 2012 fared better than those who did in 2011.

Some 59% of the Internet companies who went public this year were trading above their IPO price as of midday Wednesday and 47% were trading above the price of their first actual trade, according to data compiled for Mashable by Kevin Pleines, an analyst with Birinyi Associates. By comparison, 42% of the Internet companies who went public last year were trading above their IPO price by the end of 2011 and just 14% were trading above the price of their first trade.

That may come as somewhat a surprise considering all the negative press surrounding the Facebook IPO, but as Pleines explains, Facebook’s troubles arguably overshadowed the success of many other tech companies this year. “Facebook received the bulk of the press in the first half of the year, first on their valuation then the subsequent poor performance,” Pleines said. “Many of the other internet companies flew under the radar.”

What’s more, Pleines says that Facebook’s disastrous IPO may have caused other tech companies to rethink the timing and valuation of their own IPOs, which may have prevented similar Internet IPO disasters. In fact, 10 Internet companies went public before Facebook did in May, but only six went public afterwards.

All in all, there were two fewer Internet IPOs this year than last year. The total value of Internet IPOs this year was more than double that of 2011, but the vast majority of that was Facebook. If you take Facebook out of the equation, the total value of the Internet IPOs this year was actually 63% lower than last year, suggesting that this was a less eventful year for tech IPOs than 2011.
