    It took me a while to realise what you folk's did. I mean, I noticed that it was a Windows logo, but thought that the poster did that on purpose for April Fool's; not MacRumors changing their : apple : to be a Windows logo :p. Awesome job folk's.

    Is it just me, or are the images in news posts on the front page at a slight angle?

    Yeah, I noticed that. At first I thought it was due to the webpage for getting those nonsense sentences, but later just figured Arn or Doctor Q were playing around. It might be a nice feature to add though. Save typing for those "special" threads. :D


    Edit: My spell checker is killing me. It changed special to specie.

    The angle on the Front Page pictures are really starting to screw with my mind, I keep thinking all pictures, on all websites are now wonky. :confused:

    Yep. Look at the tagline under the MacRumors Logo: "Slanted News and Rumors you Care About." :rolleyes:

    Here's the technical reason for the slanted images:

    CSS3 applied to the img tag:

    -moz-transform:rotate(0.5deg);

    Of course webkit has essentially the same transform property for Safari and Chrome.

    I guess you'll know when the clock strikes midnight.

    Have you noticed that not many people have been taking the suggestions? It's as if they actually think what THEY want to say is better! :eek:

    The assertion of the means of iPhone production comes from the formation of the master-slave push notification dialectic.

    Same here, not seeing the slanted images. Does it work in Safari?

    Go :apple::apple::apple:!
