Photo editor | PicMonkey: Free Online Photo Editing The Textbooks Of Tomorrow [INFOGRAPHIC] As someone who has just bought an iPad, I can personally appreciate its potential to become the dominant force in the digital book wars. PDF and ePub files can be uploaded instantly, and then annotated with your stylus pen or finger. Let’s face it, if you were a student, what would you rather have? 10 heavy textbooks or a thin much lighter iPad? According to this infographic by OnlineEducation.net, 1 in 4 students would prefer digital books so much that they would give up sex for a month in order to get them. One figure I am not entirely convinced about is the assertion that digital books are on average 53% cheaper than print books. What do you think? Image Credit : ntr23

Just1Photo, una web para crear concursos de fotografía de forma sencilla Desde Promivia, una nueva empresa que nace en la Universidad Miguel Hernández, nos hablan de su nuevo proyecto. Se trata de Just1Photo (just1photo.com), una aplicación web diseñada para crear y gestionar concursos de fotografía desde Internet. El objetivo es permitir recibir, clasificar y dejar las fotos listas para votación en los diferentes concursos creados, para evitar tener que recibir el material por email, sincronizar jurados y clasificar contenido de la forma tradicional (lo que puede llevar mucho tiempo). Solo tenemos que crear el concurso, personalizar sus datos, elegir al jurado y definir las fechas, obteniendo así una url única para cada concurso creado, facilitando su divulgación. Una de las metas que se quieren alcanzar es hacer de Just1Photo una nueva herramienta de marketing para empresas, por lo que han potenciado el componente social para que se pueda divulgar fácilmente el contenido en las redes sociales.
