Sass stands for Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets. After a quick look, I thought that it was better suited to larger sites and involved programming. After a second look, the scales fell from my eyes. Sass organizes your stylesheets efficiently and drastically cuts down on your development time. It uses some programming tools, e.g. variables, while being accessible to non-programmers.

Fears of security have been swept aside as mobile users worldwide devour information & entertainment on the go.
The opportunities for marketing are huge. Last year the mobile market was estimated to be worth $25-50 billion by 2015, but as China’s app market is valued at $35 billion those early figures massively undersell the mobile market.
