Unlock local storage for mobile Web applications with HTML 5

HTML5 is a popular technology for very good reasons. It brought desktop application-like capabilities to the web browser, not just on the desktop, but also on mobile devices. In this five-part series, you will learn about popular HTML5 features. In each part, you will also get to experiment with code that showcases these features to illustrate how they work on both desktop and mobile browsers.
Prerequisites
In this tutorial, you will develop a web application to showcase the Local Storage API. The code used in this tutorial covers core web technologies like HTML, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and JavaScript. To test the application on desktop and mobile devices, it is recommended that you use the latest web browser versions.
Local storage 101
As websites became more dynamic and data driven, the need to store data on the client side increased. In many scenarios, web applications need to manage their own state and data, whether

ICANN Halts $1.1 Billion Sale of .Org Registry

Charlotte Web shares a report from The Register: ICANN has halted the proposed $1.1 billion sale of the .org registry to an unknown private equity firm, claiming this was “the right thing to do.” The DNS overseer has been under growing pressure to use its authority to refuse the planned transfer of the top-level domain from the Internet Society to Ethos Capital, most recently from the California Attorney General who said the deal “puts profits above the public interest.” ICANN ultimately bowed to the US state’s top lawyer when it concluded today it “finds the public interest is better served in withholding consent.”

It gave several factors, all of which were highlighted by Attorney General Xavier Becerra as reasons to reject it: the fact that the sale would see the registry — which has long served non-profit organizations — turn from a non-profit itself into a for-profit vehicle; that Ethos

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the non-profit organization that oversees the Internet’s domain name system, has rejected a controversial proposal to sell the .org domain to a private equity group for more than $1 billion. It’s a serious—quite possibly fatal—blow to a proposal that had few supporters besides the organizations that proposed it.
Currently, the .org domain registry is run by the Public Interest Registry, a non-profit subsidiary of another non-profit called the Internet Society. PIR was created in 2002 to run the .org domain and has been doing so ever since. But last fall, the Internet Society stunned the non-profit world by announcing it would sell the PIR—and, effectively, ownership of the .org domain—to a new and secretive private equity firm called Ethos Capital for more than $1 billion.
The announcement created a swift and powerful backlash. In its resolution formally rejecting the
