The death of stock photos A woman being accosted by floating hamburgers, a man with an eyepatch holding an abacus, and an astronaut feeding a horse in a harem costume may seem like scenes out of a dystopian sci-fi novel, but they are not. They are examples of the bizarre world of stock photos, where images are as ridiculous as they are useless. While these may be extreme examples, the fact remains that stock photos do not depict reality. A report by Boston Consulting Group found that Millennials — which are the largest generation in U.S. history and about to lead the country in spending power — engage with brands “far more extensively and personally than older generations.” Today’s consumer is blasted by marketing on all fronts and most of that marketing is easy to ignore, delete, fast forward and swipe past. Content needs to be authentic for marketing campaigns to succeed, which is why user-generated content has emerged as a priceless resource. Free People This campaign succeeded on a number of levels.

Top 5 solid-state drives: It's upgrade time - CNET CNET editor Dong Ngo picks the best solid-state drives (SSDs) currently on the market. Officially, solid-state drives (SSDs) are no longer too expensive. They are not quite "affordable" yet, but with the top 1TB capacity going for somewhere between $350 and $450, they are much more accessible and totally worth the investment. This is especially true if you still use a regular hard drive inside your computer. Replacing that hard drive with an SSD will be the most satisfying upgrade, and it will boost your rig's performance so significantly that you'll ask yourself why you didn't do it sooner. When it comes to getting an SSD, the larger the capacity is always better. There are a lot of SSDs on the market, with different brands and models. Transcend SSD370S With its two largest capacity drives (512GB and 1TB) costing just $175 and $360, respectively, the Transcend SSD370S has set a new low in SSD pricing: about 34 cents per gigabyte.

Have you noticed it? Recently, more and more companies have started complaining about the declining amount of traffic Facebook drives to their website.

Des commentaires efficaces avec Disqus Les systèmes de commentaires n'ont l'air de rien comme cela, mais ils représentent une des plus grandes avancées du Web et aussi la plus grosse différence entre la presse papier et la presse digitale. Le fait de pouvoir donner son avis sur un produit, enrichir un article d'informations supplémentaires, ou fournir très simplement un feedback sur une ligne éditoriale est une force à ne pas prendre à la légère. Ajouter un système de commentaires sur son site n'est pas réellement compliqué : la grande majorité des CMS ont leur propre module et n'importe quel développeur est tout à fait capable de créer son propre système. Mais qu'en est-il des bons modules de commentaires ? Pour réponde à cette question, laissez-moi vous présenter Disqus. Disqus Disqus est un système de commentaires externalisé, que vous avez très certainement déjà vu quelque part sur le web, que vous en soyez conscient ou pas. Les avantages de Disqus Son installation L'installation de Disqus est impressionnante de simplicité.

Ad tech is killing the online experience | Media There’s something so wonderfully easy about reading this column in a physical newspaper. You turned the page, and here it is, with few annoyances or distractions, in an ultra-high-definition typeface which was custom-designed with pleasurable reading in mind. Or – wait – are you reading this on a phone? Did you follow a link from Twitter, or Facebook? Or maybe you’re on a train, or a plane, or you’re trying to use your laptop on your cousin’s crappy Wi-Fi connection out in the countryside somewhere. Web-based articles, these days, are increasingly an exercise in pain and frustration. When it comes to the economics of online publishing, the first thing to remember is that job No 1 isn’t to get the news to you. That ecosystem raises important questions about privacy and just general creepiness – the way that the minute you look at a pair of shoes online, for instance, they then start following you around every other website you visit for weeks. This is the tragedy of the commons. Oh, you're a dollar naughtier than most. In your time, yes, but nowadays shut up! Besides, these are adult stemcells, harvested from perfectly healthy adults whom I killed for their stemcells.

Ceci est un h2 » Install the Apple ProRES codec without Final Cut or ProApps Thanks to the very old forum discussion over at Creative Cow. I was able to install the Apple ProRES codec for quicktime without installing Final Cut X or Final Cut Studio. I’m sorry apple, but I abandoned Final Cut years ago. However my new capture card the Black Magic Intensity Extreme can only capture in Uncompressed or PDX. To use ProRES requires that you have a ProApp like Final Cut X, Final Cut Pro or Motion installed. Install Instructions: There is a workaround however. Move the following files to: /Mackintosh HD/Library/Quicktime/ and some more files to /Mackintosh HD/Library/Video/Professional Video Workflow Plug-Ins After that the Codecs will show up in any app the uses the Quicktime Codec library and can be used in programs like Media Express. Codec Download :You can download the extracted codecs here form my website for easy access.

philipbeel/contactable Enable “Save As” in OS X Mountain Lion & OS X Mavericks Mac users with OS X Mavericks, Yosemite, and Mountain Lion finally have the option to bring back the much-loved “Save As” feature that was removed from Lion. It’s slightly hidden though, and there’s a few quirks with it, but we’ll show you how to access “Save As” and even better, how to have it always be visible by enabling a reasonable keyboard shortcut to use the feature again with a simple keystroke. This will work on all Macs with OS X Yosemite, OS X Mavericks, and OS X Mountain Lion, leaving Lion to be the odd version out, as versions of Mac OS X prior to that retained Save As from the earliest days of the Mac operating system. On with using Save As in modern OS X! How to Use “Save As” in OS X Mavericks, Yosemite, & Mountain Lion For a one-off “Save As” of the current file in a supported application, just do the following: Pull down the “File” menu and hold down the “Option” key to turn Duplicate into ‘Save As…’ Yes, this works the same in all modern versions of OS X.
