Good morning all,

Welcome to our March 15 link roundup. Here are some notable posts and pages from other software engineering blogs and websites that you may have missed:

A Simple Hint why SaaS is Better, by Phil Wainewright at The Connected Web. Did you know that if you write “find attached” in a Gmail message, and hit “Send” without attaching a file, Gmail will ask if you meant to attach a file? Phil’s encounter with this Gmail feature prompted a fascinating post on the capabilities of software as a service.
