There are hundreds of friends and clients who use the Bruceb Favorites page as their browser home page.
I’m going to do something drastic that might leave you shocked and dismayed.
I’m going to change it.
On February 3, you will automatically be redirected to the new home for the Favorites page, www.brucebfavorites.com. Go take a look so you won’t be surprised next week!
It’s got the same goal – fast browsing to the most popular online destinations with no ads, no distracting flashy bits, and no gossip headlines. The new layout is clean and modern, even less cluttered than the current page.
There’s something more important going on, though. The new Favorites page can also be used on phones and tablets.
If you’re on a desktop computer, look at the new Favorites page in a window, and move the left and right borders closer together. You’ll see the page collapse elegantly so everything is still visible and usable, no matter how narrow it gets. It’s called “responsive web design.” It’s all the rage.
Try viewing it on your phone or tablet. It adapts to the resolution of your screen and it looks lovely on all of them. It’s finger-friendly, too, if you’re using a touchscreen.
If you make it a favorite on your phone, you can use it to get to other sites without typing in addresses or doing searches.
I hope you like the new design! Bruceb.com, BrucebNews.com and BrucebFavorites.com will share the same design after this weekend. You can preview the new design at brucebnews.com and brucebfavorites.com this week, but links to bruceb.com won’t work until the weekend. I understand there’s a sporting event of some kind on Sunday, which sounds like a perfect time to work on something fun without being disturbed.
Thank you for your continued friendship and loyalty!
See Bruce at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium
If any of you are attending the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium in Sacramento, stop by the Technology & Innovation session on Thursday at 2pm. I’ll be on a panel with Kevin Zollinger (Wente Family Estates), Patrick DeLong (Crimson Wine Group), John Denzel (FlowVision), and Tony Stephen (Scheid Vineyards), discussing challenges and opportunities in technology for companies large and small. I’d love to see you there!
