The use of bots and scrapers continues to surge, and they are pounding your web server resources, cloud or not. Bot behavior is for the most part benign, but poorly-coded and malicious bots can hurt site speed and performance. They look like DDoS attacks.

Here are the main considerations for encoding video for your iOS app, or your video is being used in an iOS / iTunes app that you would like to have available in the iTunes store:
If your app delivers video over cellular networks, and the video exceeds either 10 minutes duration or 5 MB of data in a five minute period, you are required to use HTTP Live Streaming. (Progressive download may be used for smaller clips.)
If your app uses HTTP Live Streaming over cellular networks, you are required to provide at least one stream at 64 Kbps or lower bandwidth (the low-bandwidth stream may be audio-only or audio with a still image).1 karma points

Time can be different things to different people. It all depends on who and when you ask: long, short, money, an arrow, an illusion or the fourth dimension. Most people today agree on how to tell time, counting 60 seconds in a minute and 24 hours in a day. And while different cultures celebrate their own months and holidays, the 12-month Gregorian calendar is now the most widely used option for marking a given date.
So today will be the last sequential date of the 21st century: 12/13/14. The next such numerical alignment won’t roll around for another 89 years. In Europe, this milestone has already passed, because folks there prefer to format dates starting with the day. For Europeans, 11 December 2013 (11/12/13) was the last sequential date of the century.2 karma points
