Responsive Images, you know all about it. Are you sure?
If you're not so sure, this is a MUST read: Don't use <picture> (most of the time) and When to use <picture> for resolution switching - our congratulations to Jason Grigsby for the excelent articles!
And... if you REALLY wish to understand it... read this: Native Responsive Images by Yoav Weiss (THANKS, Yoav!)
Will Internet Explorer be a modern browser? Looks like Microsoft REALLY wish it.
Yoav Weiss on Responsive Images on Vimeo : Responsive Images are Coming to a Browser Near You After over 2 years of community effort, we have finally reached the stage where a native responsive images solution is right around the corner. Major browsers and the Responsive Images Community Group are working hand in hand on the picture element specification, and implementations are under way. In this session we will discuss the various use cases the specification handles, the native solution for them, the matching syntax for each one, do’s and don’ts when it comes to polyfilling, and the state of current implementation efforts.
"Internet of Things" (IoT) is the interconnection of uniquely identifiable embedded computing devices within the existing Internet infrastructure. Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond machine-to-machine communications (M2M) and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications. The interconnection of these embedded devices (including smart objects), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a Smart Grid.

Personal recommendation: Always prefer Responsive Design and stay away from codes that uses "user-agent" detection (History of the browser user-agent string). I guess Bruce Lawson do not recommend the same.
"SEF" and "SEO": "Search Engine Optimization" (often abbreviated to "SEO") refers to the process of improving the volume and quality of traffic to a Website from Search Engines. A site that has been optimized according to "SEO" practices is said to be "Search Engine Friendly" (often abbreviated to "SEF"). A somewhat important "SEO" technique that also helps your users is using "Search Engine Friendly" URLs. Do you wish to read more? See Mark Jackson article. Off topic: at United States it is "optimiZe" and at United Kingdom it is "optimiSe" :)
CSS4: There is no such thing as CSS4!!!
"There has never been a CSS4. There will never be a CSS4. CSS4 is not a thing that exists." - Tab Atkins Jr.
HTML5: Should You Care? You don't HAVE TO. Probably. Maybe. It depends.
"There is little doubt that your website could be working harder for you. Sites are not brochures anymore: the way people interact with you online is as much a part of your brand as what you say or what you look like. But you don’t need a new website simply because there is a new way to build them now. HTML5 and other tools can help you create richer experiences that are (hopefully) more future-proof, but they are only effective when they’re serving a higher purpose for your brand. Before you think about what kind of site you can make, think about the kind of experience you want people to have. Hopefully, as HTML5 and other tools continue to evolve, we will continue to close that gap between what we can imagine and what we can create." - Zak Menkel
