Over at my Palm Pre Hacks blog, I outlined some of the highlights of WebOS, which is the OS that powers the Palm Pre and why I think HP has actually made a smart move of killing their HP Slate tablet product, replacing it with WebOS.

PHP Hack – How to Detect iPhone, iPod, Andoird, Palm Pre Browsers!

One of our readers Titus just alerted me that Zedomax.com on smartphone browsers such as his iPhone will cause our e-mail newsletter lightbox to appear and make it almost impossible to get rid of.

<?php $iphone = strpos($_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’],”iPhone”); $android = strpos($_SERVER[‘HTTP_USER_AGENT’],”Android”); $palmpre = strpos($_SERVER[̵
