Reversible USB cable on new iPhone

It appears that Apple maybe be getting ahead of the game again and pre-empting the new reversible USB standard with its own cable.

As the Lightning cable already has the benefit of being plugged in in any orientation, this should stop me damaging both ends now :) You can also see the patent has been filled too.

And it seems some boxed cables ready for September 9th, the rumoured reveal date of the 5.5-inch and 4.7-inch iPhone 6 models.

Guess we need to see if these are real or not.

Font Awesome

font awesome wordpressCame across 2 WordPress sites today that both had a few plugins installed to enable Font Awesome on their sites.

Much easier and better for your site to set font awesome WordPress up in your functions.php file:

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'prefix_enqueue_awesome' );

function prefix_enqueue_awesome() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'prefix-font-awesome', '//netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.0.3/css/font-awesome.min.css', array(), '4.0.3' );
}

All you need to do next is add the icons you need. Take a look over at Font Awesome for a few hundred icons.

Even do some great spinning icons :)
