Here's Why Mobile Users Are Leaving Your App and What to Do About It (Infographic) Having a mobile app is an increasingly vital part of any company’s strategy.

The 100 Best Tracks of 2014 There are qualities about Mike Hadreas that make him seem heroic: His songbook takes on themes of trauma and addiction, the body and identity, all in a way that seems designed to protect us—a reminder that we're not alone in our otherness.

Under the handle @adarchives, the Nigerian-born, London-based graphic designer has been posting a storm of her endless archive of vintage ads on Instagram and Tumblr. Plucked from the likes of mags including i-D, Sleazenation, and The Face, these ripped up pages are rare finds, relics of a lost past. A self-confessed hoarder, what begun as Halima's personal project soon became a collaborative art series, as East London's Superimpose Studio began lending its curatorial hand. Now, having amassed a sizeable collection, Halima is currently looking into ways of expanding the project further — whether through the physical form of a book or opening an immersive online gallery. Here, we catch up with the London College of Communication graduate to talk mags, ads, and the importance of preserving the past.
How TheFamily Is Reshaping The French Tech Ecosystem French startup accelerator TheFamily is raising up to $2 million from angel investors and Index Ventures. It’s an open round — so far investors have committed $1 million. Given the overall interest around the funding, the company should quickly max out its round.
