    Ever wonder what the subjects of all those Renaissance paintings were thinking? Apparently, the comic genius or geniuses behind WTF Renaissance did, and all we can say is that we wish they’d been our buddy on all those museum field trips we went on as kids.

  • If you choose to be in the dog food business...

    Be delighted to eat dog food. It makes no sense to disdain the choices your customers make. If you can't figure out how to empathize and eagerly embrace the things they embrace, you are letting everyone down with your choice. Sure, someone needs to make this, but it doesn't have to be you. If you treat the work as nothing but an obligation, you will soon be overwhelmed by competition that sees it as a privilege and a calling.

    From the New York Times, an interesting study of web-search trends from both ends of the economic spectrum in the US. The Upshot had done a study that sought to find the easiest places to live in the country based on various factors including income, education and life expectancy. Add some Google info and the picture that emerges is sad.

    Jobs are not always just about the paycheque. Culture matters, too. To me, anyway. Business Insider has a list of the top-rated 25 companies when using the measure “corporate culture”. Guess which company comes in at Number One? Twitter. Second on the list is Edelman, the PR firm. I know an employee here who really loves her job there. So this firm is on my radar already. Southwest (airline) and Chick-fil-A (fast food) both are on this top-25 list. For the rest, see link below. Full story here: Business Insider. More stories about Careers. Photo credit: Canva.com

    Amid the crumbling row houses in once-industrial Camden, New Jersey, murals are dedicated to the fallen, hundreds more lost in one of America's deadliest cities. One is dedicated to a veteran who survived his deployment in Iraq unscathed, only to be shot and killed in his hometown. "This is not a war you can win in one day," one Camden police officer said. "This is not a war where you can go and get rid of the bad guys and say, ‘OK guys, here's your city back.' "We have to occupy this city forever." Homicides are down across most of the country, but little has changed in Camden. Parents…

    Brazil's constitution plainly says that "anonymity is forbidden," which spells bad news for anonymous apps.This week Brazilian prosecutors asked Judge Paolo Cesar de Carvalho to impose a ban on Secret, the slick anonymous broadcasting app and spiritual successor to Gossip Girl. Article 5, Section IV of Brazil's constitution plainly says while "expression of thought is free" for all citizens, "anonymity is forbidden." The laws are constructed in such a way that citizens have a chance to refute whoever is disparaging them, which means Secret and its ilk are technically breaking the law.

    Be delighted to eat dog food. It makes no sense to disdain the choices your customers make. If you can't figure out how to empathize and eagerly embrace the things they embrace, you are letting everyone down with your choice. Sure, someone needs to make this, but it doesn't have to be you.

    Seth Godin
    21 Aug 2014 | 2:33 am
    Great marketers have empathy. They're able to imagine what it might be like to have a mustache or wear pantyhose. They work hard to imagine life in someone else's shoes. Bullies are tone deaf. They don't always set out to be brutal and selfish, but their near-total lack of empathy amplifies their self involvement. "What's it like to be you?" is an impossible question to answer. But people who aren't tone deaf manage to ask it.

On the other hand, there are lots of things I can do to control my reaction to gravity. I can take Alexander classes or get in better shape. I can avoid situations where gravity makes me uncomfortable (the trapeze, for example). I can choose to not whine about gravity and its effects. There are countless forces in our lives that are out of our control. That doesn't mean we can't do anything about how they influence our work and our…

Hundreds of years ago there were holier-than-thou people standing in the village square, wringing their hands, ringing their bells and talking about how urgent a problem was. They did little more than wring their hands, even then. In our connected world, though, there are two sides to social media's power in spreading the word about a charitable cause. According to recent data about the ice bucket challenge making the rounds, more than 90% of the people mentioning it (posting themselves being doused or passing on the word) didn't make a donation to support…

VoLTE is designed to allow carriers to send voice calls over LTE networks, right alongside data. On the consumer end, this results in higher quality voice calls and faster call connection times. Subscribers on CDMA networks (Sprint and Verizon) will further benefit from VoLTE, as it allows the simultaneous use of data and voice, something that's not currently possible.

    The strangest of moments can bring you insights. I’ll tell you that for sure. Do you see the picture that accompanies this post? That was moments after winning a silly competition where I had to use a piece of uncooked spaghetti to spear six ziti noodles without using any hands. How did I accomplish this faster than my competitors? Well, that’s where the insight came in. How Can I Focus Better? In that moment, my brain-chatter was intense: “I don’t want to be here. Why did I say yes to this? This is stupid? I’m going to LOOK stupid. Wow, I’m very shaky. My…

    Jacq was watching a rerun of Shark Tank last night with her mom and she came across Steve Gadling, who pitched his business to the Shark Tank. What was he doing? Drawing cats. Not very well, mind you. And just with paper and a Sharpie. And he wanted ten thousand dollars. Part of his pitch was a little dance, and a “song.” Watch this video: Can’t see the video?

  • How Do I Reach My Audience?

    12 Aug 2014 | 5:36 pm
    People ask me that often. “How do I reach my audience?” First, I tell them gently, it’s not your audience. Second, I tell them that reach is only part of it. Once they’ve seen you, they have to care enough that they’ll take a next step. From there, it only gets more difficult. But that’s okay. Challenge is good. Let me give you some thoughts. Before You Try to “Reach Your Audience” Let’s convert that to “reach out to people who might care” or just “reach out.” But before you want to do that, you’ll want your…

  • 3 Lessons Learned From a Titan of Copywriting

    Brian Kurtz
    19 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    I was on the phone earlier this week with copywriting legend John Carlton and we were ranting about all sorts of topics. (You know, like you do when you’re on the phone with John Carlton.) He made the observation that the next “big thing” in marketing may not be in the areas of whiz-bang technology, but rather in the blocking and tackling techniques of adept career direct marketers.

 That’s not to say that technology won’t continue to move at the speed of light. But certain methods just don’t change. Great writing still rules. As they say here at…

    Jack Ungulate is a strange bird. When he drinks beer, he licks his index and middle finger, swipes the bottle opening, and then pauses, with the bottle raised to his mouth, before turning it upside down. Each time, every time. He also has a routine with his steel-toe boots. The left one must go on first, then the right. But he takes them off in reverse. And then there’s his ritual when buying large ticket items like a car: he sends his wife to the lot while he sits in the garage, waiting for her to call.

  • Details that count: Apple's obsession with reversible cable connectors

    22 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    It’s been nearly impossible over the last few weeks to avoid hearing that Apple is reportedly working on a Lightning cable with a reversible USB connector—that is, a connector that will fit into a USB port no matter which direction you plug it in.Leaving aside the fact that Apple-related rumors are a dime a dozen and tend to be about as reliable as horse-racing tips, you may wonder what all the hubbub is about. Sure, not having to “find the right way” to insert a USB cable is convenient, but it seems hardly worth so much press. So what’s the big deal? To read this article in full…
  • Hold the phone: iMessage spam not all it's cracked up to be

    22 Aug 2014 | 8:00 am
    Is Apple’s iMessage the new favorite tool of spammers worldwide? A widely-quoted recent article written by Wired’s Robert McMillan suggests it is, even going so far as to  claim that iMessage “is being taken over by spammers.”Largely based on an interview with security analyst Tom Landesman, McMillan states that, thanks of a few enterprising fraudsters who have figured out a way to take advantage of Apple’s networks, iMessage accounts for some 30 percent of all mobile spam, and that the company’s efforts at stemming the onslaught of unwanted messages are moving too slowly to…

    22 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    Reader Bruce Harris would like to get double-duty from a gaming device. He writes: I purchased a PlayStation 4 and an extra DualShock 4 controller for two-player games. I rarely use the second controller and wondered if I could use it to play games on my Mac. You can, though with some games you’ll need extra help. Before we get to that let’s start with the hardware configuration. As you know, the DualShock 4 controller has a micro USB port on the back, just below the status light. You use this port to initially pair the controller with the PS4. But it can also operate as a link between…

    Software version numbers seem increasingly passé in these days of continuously updated apps and cloud services, but in some corners of the programmable world, they still matter. A lot.Take, for instance, Node.js, the development framework that popularized the use of JavaScript-based Web apps on servers as well as browsers.

    In the two years since Apple birthed iMessages, the texting system has been a revelation for iPhone and Mac users. Few could dispute the convenience of being able to text other Apple users without relying on carriers (or even phones, for that matter). Unfortunately, that promised land of SMS couldn’t remain unspoiled forever.The system started showing a few cracks, the latest of which is best summarized by one word: spam.

What does a storyteller long for more than the gaze of a rapt listener?Back in the early days of the Web, the click was novel, a brain-busting rush of seemingly endless information.

  • Ways To Avoid Overwhelming Users: Lessons Learned From My High-School Teachers

    Jon Bernbach
    22 Aug 2014 | 6:56 am
    High school. I won’t lie: I did not have the highest grades in my graduating class. Some classes and lessons were so poorly designed and delivered that I would frequently become frustrated and fatigued and would ultimately shut down. The contents of the lessons would just wash over me. The experience wasn’t pleasant, and the results were obvious from my transcripts. But I did well in a few classes. The major difference was the teaching style. Currently, I am a user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) designer of mobile and web applications. In a way, like a teacher, I need to present…

These practices from the world of manufacturing have come to influence how things are done when designing and building software products as well.

Unfortunately, our recent large-scale usability study and top-50 benchmark of e-commerce search finds that search often doesn’t work very well.

  • How to Fix Chromatic Aberration in Lightroom 5

    Daniel Korzeniewski
    20 Aug 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Chromatic aberration is a phenomenon caused by distortion of the lens. Basically, it is a failure of the lens to focus all the colors to the same convergence point. The effect can be generally seen in dark edges adjacent to bright areas of an image; it looks like an out-of-focus ghost of magenta or purple color. In photography this is also called “purple fringing”. The quality of the optic plays an important role here, as not all lenses will produce the same effect. This problem tends to manifest much more in zoom lenses with variable aperture. However, no lens is exempt from…

The original Leica MP (no hypen) announced in 2003, took the film M-series back to its 1950s roots by featuring unflashy ergonomics inspired by the M3.

    I always try to sit down and think up things that have become totally vital to my Lightroom workflow. Sometimes those things are right inside Lightroom, but I have to say if there’s one non-Lightroom thing that I can’t live without for my photos, it’s my Wacom tablet. No joke.

And honestly, if you don’t own a tablet then this post isn’t even for you because it’s probably hard for you to envision where you’d use the tips/settings I’m about to…

    Hey everyone. Sorry for being away lately. If you follow my personal blog (if you’re in to landscape photography I hope you do), I posted that I was going to be gone for a week filming a Landscape Photography at Mt. Rainier (outside of Seattle) class for KelbyOne. Well, I had no idea that I wouldn’t have any internet and cell service for most of the time. Anyway, I’m back in the office until Photoshop World and I wanted to get out a quick tip that I just learned this week… Side Note: I posted a recap of my photos from that trip in case you want to see it. Here’s…
  • NEWS: Lightroom 5.6 Update

    31 Jul 2014 | 6:34 am
    Hey everyone! Adobe just released another “dot” update for Lightroom. We’re up to 5.6 now and it’s free to download. Just launch Lightroom, go to the Help menu and choose Check for Updates. There’s nothing really breathtaking in this one. It’s mostly a camera update (the Nikon D810 is now included as well as a couple of Panasonic cameras) and a few bug fixes. Oh and lots of news lens profile support (especially with Sony’s lenses). You can see exactly what’s in the update and what bug fixes were addressed over on the Adobe Lightroom Journal…
  • Tip: Lightroom Tips and My Sky Replacement Tutorial

    28 Jul 2014 | 7:26 am
    Last week, over at Kelby One, we did a free webcast for Photoshop World coming up in just over a month. We had videos and tutorials from lots of various Photoshop World instructors, and I jumped in to do a some quick Lightroom tips as well as a tutorial on replacing a not-so-great sky in landscape photos. Replacing the sky is one of those questions I hear about a lot. I’ll tell you up front, that in order for it to work, you need similar conditions. For example, if you take an image from a blah cloudy day, and try to replace it with a sky from a bright sunny or colorful sunset, then…
  • Lightroom Plug-In: If You’re Looking For Film Effects, Check Out Alien Skin Exposure 6

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:04 am
    Hey everyone. I keep getting asked about all of the Lightroom plug-ins out there, which is why (a while back) I created a plug-in category here on the site. One of the big areas I hear a lot about is film effects. Lately it seems that film effects have taken over the post-processing world. Look at the popularity of the VSCO Film presets for Lightroom (and many others that do something similar). Just about every photo app on the iPhone does ‘em too. Now, I do think the overall community out there wants to do most of their work in Lightroom which is why presets are popular. But when it…

    22 Aug 2014 | 6:41 am
    Apple has started blocking downloads of anonymous communication app Secret [Direct Link] following a preliminary injunction that was granted recently by a Brazilian civil court judge (Via 9to5Mac). According to the injunction ruling shared by Gigaom earlier this week, Apple is required to remove the app from the Brazilian App Store and remotely delete the app from customers' devices. Local media noted earlier today that Secret was still listed in the Brazilian App Store, but that Apple was preventing users from installing the app on their iOS devices. The app now appears to have been removed…

    Samsung will reportedly supply Apple with RAM for the iPhone 6, according to a report from Digitimes. Samsung's return to Apple's list of RAM suppliers for the iPhone comes after it was excluded from the list in 2013, with Apple electing to partner with SK Hynix and Elpida Memory for the iPhone 5s. The logic board of the iPhone 5s featuring 1GB of RAM Apple made a drastic move to begin expelling Samsung from its supplier list for a number of key components, including application processors, mobile RAM, NAND flash chips and batteries, starting 2013, the sources noted. The report adds that…

    22 Aug 2014 | 12:57 am
    Apple partner and sapphire glass manufacturer GT Advanced is estimated to produce anywhere from 1.35 to 2.25 million sapphire covers for the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 by the end of 2014, according to a report from Digitimes Research. GTAT started sapphire production in August 2014 and expects revenue contributions from sapphire to begin in the fourth quarter, and Apple's fourth down payment is due in October 2014, these conditions signal that GTAT's sapphire production will not reach a large scale by the end of 2014, Digitimes Research indicated. However, GTAT is likely to ship sapphire at a large…

    Walmart will begin offering the 16 GB iPhone 5c for $0.97 with a two-year contract during the next 90 days, reports Engadget. The move by the retailer follows a permanent discount of the 16GB iPhone 5c to $29 in June, as Walmart will offer the special pricing to customers on AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and US Cellular. The company is also dropping the on-contract price of the 16GB iPhone 5s to $79, down from $99. It is likely that these new price drops are being done to get rid of existing inventory before the introduction of the iPhone 6, which will be unveiled on September 9 and…

    It may be Switzerland's banking capital, but Zurich's real wealth lies in the village-like charm of its cobbled streets and Alpine sceneryCNN Travel's series often carries sponsorship originating from the countries and regions we profile. However, CNN retains full editorial control over all of its reports. Read the policy. Visitors arriving in Zurich can be forgiven for wondering where the city is. Church steeples dominate the skyline. Shoes stay clean on century-old cobblestones. And lawyers and bankers jump into the Limmat to swim with the swans during lunchtime. Which begs the…
