  1. In a hyper-social world, some seek a little privacyThu, 31 Jul 2014 04:20:10 -0700
    After years of cajoling their users into sharing every thought, emotion and selfie, online firms are seeing that providing more private online spaces might also be profitable.Some recent developments suggest companies are starting to understand that their users dont want to indiscriminately share all of their thoughts and activities online. While they are still sharing plenty, they are also taking advantage of opportunities to mask their identities or share more selectively.Netflix, for example, is testing a private viewing mode that allows its users to keep titles from appearing in their activity log, or from being shared with friends on Facebook if theyve turned on that feature. The change would let you binge on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and not worry about your friends judging you for it.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  3. InDesign CC 2014 review: Better e-book tools, easier workflowsThu, 31 Jul 2014 03:30:00 -0700
    In reviews of previous versions of InDesign, the looming question was always, Is this version worth the cost of the upgrade or can I skip it? But with Adobes switch to the Creative Cloud subscription model, this question is meaningless. Every subscriber receives the latest version as soon as its available. Based on the quality of updates released since Creative Cloud was launched a little over a year ago, the result of Adobes subscription model seems to be good for customers. Bolstered by the confidence that theyll receive your ongoing upgrade dollars, Adobe is spending less time developing shiny new features intended to entice customers to pay for an upgrade. Instead, they seem to be focusing on improving the real-world usefulness of InDesign. InDesign CC 2014 has giant improvements for ePub book producers and lots of long-overdue improvements to meat-and-potatoes features such as creating tables, hyperlinks, footnotes, scaling effects, packaging of project files and printing to PDF printers.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
