Yahoo! now notifies users when they add Yahoo! account into OS X

Yahoo! now notifies users via email that their Yahoo! account was added into OS X.

This never happened before. This happened today just seconds after I finished upgrading my MacBook to OS X 10.11 El Capitan.

When the new OS X booted up and connected to internet and I was using Yahoo! account in Mail or Messages, Yahoo! automatically notified me via email that my Yahoo! account was added into OS X.

This would be a good feature for users to let them know that their account has been used by someone. If they do not use it, it means that the account may be hijacked. The email notification provides a link to reset password.

csstyle – styling your web with clean and simple

csstyle is a modern approach for crafting beautifully maintainable stylesheets. The method is implemented using a set of SASS mixins that make your CSS readable and semantic, generate your selectors for you, and automatically handle things like specificity and nesting. It makes your project’s styling refreshingly consistent. Its focus on components make it a perfect match for Web/Angular/Ember/React components.

CSStyle
To get started just import the mixins, add an id=”csstyle” to your body tag (used for automatic specificity handling),
and you’re set. You’ll be pleasantly suprised how much better these simple building blocks make writing CSS. Visit the the project here
