Now that it's April, it won't be easy to meet those high expectations. Apple will almost certainly fall short of those unfathomable figures when it reports earnings Monday at 4:30 pm ET That said, analysts are optimistic for the introduction last year of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. They're also scrutinizing the first hint of traction for the Apple Watch, Apple's first new major hardware product category…

  • Product adoption: different problems for different folks

    Seth Godin
    27 Apr 2015 | 2:31 am
    The product adoption cycle is one of the most essential things to understand when you seek to launch a product or service, or make any sort of cultural change. Different people sign up for new ideas at different rates. Some farmers, for example, are eager to try a new type of seed or irrigation device. Some farmers will wait years, or a generation, to try the same thing. Some people start the video going viral, some are the very last to see it. What distinguishes these people? It's worth noting that someone who might be an innovator at work might choose to be a laggard at home. It turns out…

    replace it with a habit. If you're afraid to write, write a little, every day. Start with an anonymous blog, start with a sentence. Every day, drip, drip, drip, a habit. If you're afraid to speak up, speak up a little, every day. Not to the board of directors, but to someone. A little bit, every day. Habits are more powerful than fears.

    Seth Godin

    You can taste it. Heinz ketchup has no terroir. It always tastes like everywhere and nowhere and the same. A Dijon mustard from a small producer in France, though, you can taste where it came from. Foodies seek out this distinction in handcrafted chocolate or wine or just about anything where the land and environment are thought to matter. But we can extend the idea to you, to your work, to the thing you're building. Visit the City Bakery in New York. Every square inch contains the DNA of the whole place. The planking of the floor. The sound as you sit on the balcony. The parade of…
  • Reckless abandon (is neither)

    Seth Godin
    24 Apr 2015 | 2:04 am
    It's not reckless, because when we leap, when we dive in, when we begin, only begin, we bring our true nature to the project, we make it personal and urgent. And it's not abandon, not in the sense that we've abandoned our senses or our responsibility. In fact, abandoning the fear of fear that is holding us back is the single best way not to abandon the work, the pure execution of the work. Later, there's time to backpedal and water down. But right now, reckless please.

    Post frequency is a topic that comes up often among bloggers.

No-one is immune from wondering if their schedule is working, or if tweaks can be made for more successful audience interaction. As I said in my previous FAQ post on how long posts should be – it depends on several factors. The length of posts, the frequency of posting, and definitely post content all require trial and error, and for the blogger to…

They were so desperate for money and adult supervision that when an experienced businessperson showed interest and offered to help raise money, they, in their own words, “followed him like dogs.” However, this adult didn’t know much about tech startups and caused them to make many mistakes in legal and financial matters. They parted ways but only after much aggravation and the significant legal expense of undoing incorrect decisions. This is not an unusual…

    In the real world, you don’t have infinite resources; you don’t have a perfect product; and you don’t sell to a growing market without competition. You’re also not omnipotent, so you cannot control what people think of your brand. Under these assumptions, most companies need all the help they can get. This is my advice to help you. Seize the high ground. Establish your brand on positive conditions like “making meaning,” “doing good,” “changing the world,” and “making people happy” —not destroying your competition.

  • Has Blogging Changed Much Over the Last 17 Years?

    Chris Brogan
    7 Apr 2015 | 10:44 am
    17 years. That’s how long I’ve been blogging (as of the moment I’m writing this post). I started in 1998, before there was blogging software, back when it was called “journaling.” A lot has changed in my life since then (two major relationships, 4 companies, the birth of my children), and obviously even more has changed with the world. Has Blogging Changed Much Over the Last 17 Years? The short answer is yes. The tools have changed immensely. My first “blogging” was really using a WYSIWYG software called Trellix (I’m stunned that they still have…

  • The Print Magazine Hoax: 10 Overlooked Lessons on Writing Great Content

    Demian Farnworth
    27 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Fans of the Internet love to mock print magazines. They love to gloat and preen as the gate to Big Media’s kingdom has been thrown open — and the gatekeepers are torn from their thrones and tossed in the moat (the pockets of their blazers stuffed with rocks). We watch from a distance as the city burns to the ground. Like there is nothing redeemable about these institutions. That’s unfortunate. Because they actually have a lot to teach us. The weakness of the web There’s no doubt the Internet is a beautiful thing. It allows all of us to have a voice — through a…
  • 6 Beautiful Ways Artificial Constraints Can Improve Your Creativity and Life

    Demian Farnworth
    24 Apr 2015 | 6:00 am
    Like accumulating capital, hard work has its own momentum. If you want to master digital media, then produce it often. Maria Popova, the woman behind Brain Pickings, publishes three substantial blog posts every weekday, typically about substantial books she reads. Each post is an elegant display of her ornate knowledge and polished creativity. And when I was asked to host a show for our digital marketing podcast network, I immediately jumped on the opportunity. Here was a chance to organize my work, tackle a new challenge, and consistently produce a new type of digital media. Yet — I…
  • 5 Easily Avoidable Mistakes That Cause Most Podcasts to Fail

    23 Apr 2015 | 1:00 pm
    Most podcasts fail. It’s unfortunate, but true. That might psyche out some potential showrunners before they even start. But savvy showrunners will recognize an opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others. Obviously, there are many possible mistakes that can lead to podcasts failing. But there are some common ones that The Showrunner hosts, Jerod Morris and Jon Nastor, have seen over and over. And what’s encouraging is that many of these mistakes are avoidable — simply by knowing what they are and knowing how to turn them into positives instead of negatives. In this…
  • How Our Obsession With Greatness Kills the Ability to Do Good Work

    23 Apr 2015 | 12:00 pm
    The pressure to be great — well, so great that it cripples us — injects us with expectations that are typically unrealistic. We spin our wheels trying to write that epic post. But we have a tendency to measure ourselves up so inadequately to those we admire — so much so that, in the end, we don’t write anything. It’s okay to focus on being great, but not at the expense of being good. You can’t reach the summit unless you start at the base of the mountain. In this 27-minute episode of No Sidebar, host Brian Gardner and Robert Bruce discuss: Audio vérité…

  • Second HTTPS snooping flaw breaks security for thousands of iOS apps

    27 Apr 2015 | 7:10 am
    Attackers can potentially snoop on the encrypted traffic of over 25,000 iOS applications due to a vulnerability in a popular open-source networking library. The vulnerability stems from a failure to validate the domain names of digital certificates in AFNetworking, a library used by a large number of iOS and Mac OS X app developers to implement Web communications—including those over HTTPS (HTTP with SSL/TLS encryption). The flaw allows attackers in a position to intercept HTTPS traffic between a vulnerable application and a Web service to decrypt it by presenting the application with a…

    Maybe the last thing you want to fuss with when you’re trying to put together a to-do list is the list itself. That’s why Apple’s Reminders app works for so many; you can easily create lists, set notifications, and check off items. That’s about it. The free version of 3 has similar features plus a few more, and it offers a different UI treatment that you might find more pleasing, if such things matter to you.'s day list.

  • The first batch of USB-C adapters and cables, tested

    27 Apr 2015 | 3:41 am
    When Apple announced the MacBook in March, the new USB Type C (USB-C for short) port caused head shaking and chin scratching. Though the standard had been released in September and shown off at the CES trade show in January, no ecosystem existed. It was hard to know how a single-port USB-C laptop would function in the real world. In the days that follow the announcement, cables and adapters started to be announced and even ship. The MacBook landed in people’s hands—including ours at Macworld—in mid-April, and I’ve been purchasing and receiving review versions of adapters for several…

    Let’s say you run a UX team. Better yet, let’s say you don’t. Let’s say you just want to do great work. You’re a consultant. You’re a newbie. You’re an intern. Your position is irrelevant. So is your title. What’s important here is that you want great UX to happen. You want it consistently. You want it now. You want it all the time. No matter your status or situation, whether director or loner, you are in a position to lead, to raise the bar in a place where it consistently sits lower than you think it should.

  • Extending WordPress With Custom Content Types

    Brian Onorio
    22 Apr 2015 | 6:04 am
    WordPress does some pretty amazing things out of the box. It handles content management as well as any other open-source solution out there — and better than many commercial solutions. One of the best attributes of WordPress is its ease of use. It’s easy because there’s not a significant amount of bloat with endless bells and whistles that steepen the learning curve. On the flip side, some might find WordPress a little… well, light. It does a lot, but not quite enough. If you find yourself hacking WordPress to do the things you wish it would do, then the chances are high that this…
  • React To The Future With Isomorphic Apps

    Jonathan Creamer
    21 Apr 2015 | 6:06 am
    Things often come full circle in software engineering. The web in particular started with servers delivering content down to the client. Recently, with the creation of modern web frameworks such as AngularJS and Ember, we’ve seen a push to render on the client and only use a server for an API. We’re now seeing a possible return or, rather, more of a combination of both architectures happening. What Is React?

  • The Current State Of E-Commerce Filtering

    Christian Holst
    20 Apr 2015 | 6:02 am
    When done right, filters enable users to narrow down a website’s selection of thousands of products to only those few items that match their particular needs and interests. Yet, despite it being a central aspect of the user’s e-commerce product browsing, most websites offer a lacklustre filtering experience. In fact, our 2015 benchmark reveals that only 16% of major e-commerce websites offer a reasonably good filtering experience. Given the importance of filtering, we — the entire team at the Baymard Institute — spent the last nine months researching how users browse, filter…

    My first impressions of the Apple Watch (after having it three days or so) After I posted a picture on Friday of my Apple Watch over on my Facebook page, some folks were asking what I thought of it. Now that I’ve had it for a few days here’s my initial thoughts after wearing (and playing) with it for the weekend: 1. You do need to read the instructions – it’s not an iPad where everything’s so obvious. 2. It’s more thoughtfully designed than I thought. Some seriously clever design went into making a watch computer easy to use. 3. There are more apps than I…

    Bruce Wunderlich
    27 Apr 2015 | 7:12 am
    The goal of portrait retouching is to bring out the most naturally pleasing image of the subject. This image is the finished result of Frequency Separation Retouching in Photoshop. Portrait retouching may be accomplished using many different methods. Still, how often have you seen a portrait image that has been retouched to the point that the subject’s face looks unnatural? Even many of the software packages available for portrait retouching result in an airbrushed effect to skin tones. What if the detail and color of a portrait could be separated for retouching?

  • Why You Should Make Dark Images

    James Maher
    26 Apr 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Street scene One of the most unexplored aspects in digital photography is the dark image. With digital, we have built-in light meters, histograms, incredible ISO capabilities, and processing programs, which make it much easier to expose our images brightly in all different lighting situations. This can have the effect of making photographers feel that they need to expose all of their images with a neutral histogram, where you can see the image perfectly well, with some information in the highlights, mid-tones, and shadows. This is often what you want to do, but not always. When you are…

    21 Apr 2015 | 10:01 pm
    When cropping people the general rule is to try to avoid cropping hands, feet and joints. When you crop at those points the image looks unfinished or haphazard, so try to crop between the joints. Here is a run down of cutting up bodies that would have Hannibal salivating. cropping feet = big no no cropping between feet and knees looks more deliberate and acceptable cropping between knees and hips is usually ok too, but notice in this example that the shorts and the lines on the socks create visual tension with the frame. Not the best crop. cropping the hand is usually another no-no cutting…
