Eltima’s Black Friday Sale runs through December 3 and includes 8 of their most popular apps (regularly $339.72) for just $39.95.
Included in the bundle are CloudMounter, Commander One, Elmedia Player, SyncMate, Folx, FlexiHub and two of my favorites—PhotoBulk and Uplet. Unlike many other Cyber-sales this year, this bundle includes the latest versions of the apps… and they’re actually all USEFUL apps, not one good app with 5 or 6 other junk ones thrown in.
Fantastic article by Nick Compton, with more gorgeous photos of Apple Park by Mark Mahaney. Definitely check this article at Wallpaper out!
USB-C sounded great on paper. What it has evolved into is actually a dumpster fire.
Color does not add a pleasant quality to design — it reinforces it.
Color is one of the most powerful tools in a designer’s toolkit. It can draw attention, set a mood, and influence a users’ emotions, perceptions and actions. Did you know that color accounts for 90% of the reason why you purchased a specific product? Or that full-colored ads in magazines are recognized 26% more than black and white ads?
Nick Babich has a great article on color theory for designers—check out The impact of color on conversion rates at the Adobe Creative Cloud blog.
Yeah, I get it. You’re not a copywriter. But you’re probably a designer, and that means you’ll be writing at some point in your career—even if it’s just a headline or two.

I found this article about Apple’s work with the hearing impared fascinating. I had no idea we were at the point of surgically implanting hearing aids, but apparently 10% of hearing aid customers could really stand to benefit from the surgery. And I’m sure as the technology improves (along with the hardware), it’s going to be more common.
While some companies “throw together” features to sell their wares, Apple spent years developing a low-energy form of Bluetooth for just such a use-case. Bravo, Apple!
‘‘Jony works tirelessly at the detail, evolving, improving, refining. For me, that makes him a poet.’’
The Wall Street Journal has a superb feature article on Jonathon Ive, Apple’s design genius. And of course, it’s packed with gorgeous photos of Apple’s new headquarters, including some inside pics that I’ve not seen anywhere else. You just gotta love the clean lines of the workspaces and common areas shown.
Pour yourself a cup of coffee and sit-back in your favorite chair because it’s a long article, but so worth the time.
