Silver hasn't posted any stories yet.
I have never been so excited for an email client to be launched. Godspeed!
First look at the visuals and I fully expect to see Repponen in the footer.
I hear the footsteps of Eli Schiff approaching.
He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.
According to The Verge, you can choose to opt-out of this.
Advertorial or not, but this is relevant, surely: https://youtu.be/1hJQsvoY6VU?t=165
By now, I've lost count on how many times Twitter has ended, died or fell to it's demise. It's as if Twitter has both a birthday party and a funeral once a year.
Seems like there's always someone who's not happy with it, convinced that the thing they hate is the thing that will certainly kill Twitter.
First, there were the tech blogs for the tech savvy users, worrying that "sponsored tweets could mean the end of Twitter as we know it" and not so tech savvy users complaining about spam accounts and threatening this to be the end of Twitter altogether. Then came the marketers, who are never happy with the growthnumbers in their reports. Later, during the API-gate (remember that?), pissed off developers crowdfunded App.net to build them a better alternative to Twitter. This, actually, wasn't the first time. Back in 2010, Forbes reported of a secret meeting between developers with a very similar plan.
Nowadays, I think, it's all about the search for "the meaning" of Twitter. Generation Y tech-philosophers confused over Who is it for?, What is it for?, What is it today?, Where is it headed to tomorrow? and, as Joshua ended his New Yorker piece, What has Twitter made of itself?
Twitter has died so many times already, I'm starting to believe it could be immortal.
Check out PhaseOne's CaptureOne (279€) or DxO's Optics Pro (199€). Or you could still use Lightroom CS6 (149 USD), without the CC monthly payments. There's a bit of a difference between Lightroom CS6 and CC, though: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom/versions.html
As I understand, it's essentially "free", anyway, as it is included in every paid CC subscription with annual commitment and right now there's no way of getting Adobe Portfolio without one. But yes, you're absolutely right — for someone already deep in the CC ecosystem, it would make a lot of sense, probably.
It does seem so, doesn't it. Or at least built on the basis of it. But I believe this could actually be good news for the likes of Squarespace and Format, for now, anyway. You see, as ProSite, this was more like a premium feature of Behance, and not really even trying to be a standalone product. With this kind of branding, Adobe Portfolio could hint at trying to sneak their way into the battleground. However drag-drop, cover photos and a handful of fairly limited layouts is not going to cut it there. They better custom-HTML/CSS-up fast. With Adobe's massive resources and probably integrable software, they could. If they're willing to, is to be seen. Until then, though, whenever you align up Adobe Portfolio with Squarespace and Format for a feature and customizability comparison, the ProSite successor will still fall first.
