I’m always on the lookout for stock photography resources, and I tend to bookmark any stock photo site that shows any potential. But let’s be honest, client budgets aren’t what they used to be.

Adobe has been ranked #2 on Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Software Companies list this past week, while Apple topped the list of overall Most Admired Companies, followed by Google, Amazon, Coca-Cola, and Starbucks.
Interesting read. I’ve worked for a few companies that tried having an “email-free day,” and even one that tried substituting various web-based messaging services for it. None have worked.
