More Changes to the Way Facebook Selects Ads for Your Viewing Pleasure

Jenny | June 26, 2014 | Industry

In their effort to display ads that are most relevant to Facebook users, they’re not just learning about your interests through the things you click and like within Facebook, they’re also tracking the sites that you visit outside Facebook, raising privacy concerns for users, and advertisers.

A New Responsive Design for Tompkins Industries

Jenny | June 04, 2014 | Industry

As I mentioned in our last post, we’ve been using the Foundation framework to develop responsive designs for some of our clients’ websites. Even for complex catalog sites, responsive design is an effective way to support users across multiple platforms, whether visitors are browsing your site from a full size monitor, tablet, or smartphone.

Take a look at this new CMC3 site we’ve just launched for Tompkins Industries—a company based in Kansas, which provides a range of hydraulic adapters and fluid power products. We’ve used a responsive design and updated the look and feel of the site to improve overall usability and make it even easier to find the specific product you need.

Refreshing the KCATA Site with a New Responsive Design

Jenny | May 29, 2014 | Industry

We’ve talked before about responsive design and the need for websites to look good on a range of devices from full size monitors, to tablets, to smartphones. Until recently, we generally thought that for complex sites and catalogs, a mobile-specific, slimmed-down version of a site that was easy to navigate and quick to respond was still the best approach.

But as web technologies evolve, we’re constantly re-evaluating our processes. The availability of high-quality grid frameworks like Bootstrap and Foundation have provided us with powerful new development tools. And the capabilities of modern web browsers, including those on mobile devices, made us firm believers that responsive design is the most efficient and effective way to support website users across multiple devices.

No Ebeacon Sites Affected by Heartbleed – Security Still a Concern

Jenny | April 09, 2014 | CompanyIndustry

If you’ve been online this week, you will have heard about the Heartbleed bug—a serious vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic software library that allows attackers to steal data from services and users, and eavesdrop on communications.

Fortunately, all the sites we’ve developed here at Ebeacon did not use the version of OpenSSL that contained the erroneous “Heartbleed” code. We weren’t vulnerable. We will continue to patch our servers with all the latest updates, but we want to reassure our clients that we’re in good shape as far as the server, security, and Heartbleed are concerned.

Online Retailers—Are You Ready For Internet Sales Tax?

Jenny | June 03, 2013 | Industry

For online businesses, the prospect of figuring out the tax on items shipped to states with different tax regulations could be seen as a nightmare. Yet, that’s exactly what online sellers are facing if Congress passes a new bill requiring all online sellers—except those who meet the small-seller exception—to collect sales tax.
