UI Screen Shooter
UI Screen Shooter will take screen shots for your iOS app for the App Store automatically using UI Automation. This will produce the images needed in each localization, for each device, and in each screen of the app you need. This saves quite a bit of time since we need to generate screens for the 3.5", 4", 4.5", and 5.5" displays, and both iPhone and iPad if your app is universal--not to mention that you have to do this for every localization you support in the store.

16 Things | Andreessen Horowitz
We don’t invest in themes; we invest in special founders with breakthrough ideas. Which means we don’t make investments based on a pre-existing thesis about a category. That said, here are a few of the things we’ve been observing or thinking about; we’re especially grateful to our founders/companies, and the entrepreneurs we meet with everyday, for their insights here.

Of Mice And Men | 99% Invisible
“Not satisfied merely pointing and clicking, Engelbart imagined that his mouse would be used in combination with a keyset to execute all kinds of commands that today are difficult to imagine doing without a keyboard.

Take word processing, for instance. The five-button keyset could produce all 26 letters by memorizing combinations of these keys used together. Learning to type would take a lot of practice, but Engelbart believed that with lots of repetition, the muscle memory would take over.”

The Truth About Your Smile | The Hairpin
I had braces for seven years of my life—a clumsy mix of palate expanders, headgear, and invasive lip-bumpers that bulked my skinny face at a time when I was already awkward enough without them. I was one of those middle-schoolers whose parents forced orthodontics on them when they were too young to realize what a great investment it was in their future. Instead, I adopted a coping mechanism of smiling with my mouth closed, a practice subsumed by a general feeling that I would forever be ashamed of my smile. What I didn’t realize then was that my teeth were…

Гид The Village. Как начать разбираться в классической музыке
Любое классическое произведение, вероятно, потребует от вас большего внимания, нежели обычная современная песня. Не переживайте, если с первого раза оно покажется вам сложным и непонятным. После пяти-семи прослушиваний вы начнёте чувствовать его внутреннюю логику, узнавать определённые моменты и выхватывать темы, сменяющие одна другую. Продолжайте слушать — дома, по дороге на работу и в лифте — и постепенно произведение, которое на первый взгляд казалось вам «неподъёмным», станет вам близким и понятным. Для тех, кто хотел начать слушать классику, но не знал с чего начать, The Village выбрал несколько эффективных методик.

Construct the web out of stackable containers.
A web page is a stack of autonomous containers.

Content on the web page is enclosed in these containers. Every container has a full-layout width. It can be further structured internally, but is self-sufficient. That is, a container’s content and interactions aren’t affected by previous or following containers.
Containers of one stack may be loaded from origins anywhere on the web.

Every container has a public URL = origin. A page is defined merely by a list of those origins. From there, containers are loaded into the page. The container's author maintains the original. The authors of the stack and of the container may be different.

Explain the events of Star Wars Episodes 4-6 like you are a heavily biased Imperial history textbook — bhamv comments
“To resolve these niggling issues, the Emperor adopted a two-pronged strategy. Firstly, he dissolved the Imperial Senate, which meant that the inefficiency of bureaucracy could be replaced by a more streamlined decisioning process, thus greatly accelerating the pace of governance and legislation. Secondly, the Emperor ordered the construction of a space station known as the Peace Moon.”

Raw Photo Processor (RPP)
A Raw converter for Mac OS X (10.4-10.10), supporting almost all available digital Raw formats made for photographers by a photographer-software engineer with unmeasurable amount of help and tutoring from my friend, professional photographer Iliah Borg. We just got fed up with those converters made by programmers for their upper management :)

Think of RPP as a development machine in terms of film photography - first you have to develop your roll right, then do whatever you want with it. So this is NOT a full featured photo processing package, you may need Photoshop or some other tool to apply sharpness, cropping and so on. RPP is easy to integrate with other tool though, f.e. it has Adobe Lightroom version 2, 3, 4 and 5 plugin and can work directly with Photoshop.

Галина Арапова: «Ужесточение законодательства в сфере СМИ — это катастрофа» / Интервью / Новости / Воронежский городской портал
«В рамках медиафорума для журналистов, который прошёл в Воронеже, состоялся семинар директора «Центра защиты прав СМИ», практикующего медиаюриста Галины Араповой. Тема разговора касалась не только изменения работы журналистов в связи с ужесточением законодательства в области массмедиа, но и в целом новым правовым рискам общения в соцсетях. Мы публикуем основные тезисы выступления медиаюриста, которые будут интересны всем тем, кто хоть раз опубликовал пост в соцсети. Из текста вы узнаете, что теперь за призыв вернуть Крым можно получить 5 лет, материться в СМИ безопасно можно только на иностранном языке, за распространение неточной или порочащей информации — требуют удалять материал с сайта или уничтожать тираж газеты без какой-либо компенсации, а за отрицание или искажения сути патриотизма ваш сайт предлагают блокировать.»

ProductTank: What do UX people want from Product Managers? - MindTheProduct
At the last ProductTank event, Jesmond Allen, UX director at cxpartners, spoke about what UX people want from PMs and they can best work together.

Having had experience in both roles, she outlined the difference in job descriptions, pointing out that, in fact, the two roles were more alike than not. She identified this overlap as an opportunity for the two roles to help each other out, but highlighted the risk of treading on each other’s toes.

The Rise of Men Who Don’t Work – and What They Do Instead -
At every age, the chances of not working have changed in the last 15 years. Teenagers are far more likely not to work. Older people are retiring later and working more. In the ages in between — the periods of life when most people work — the changes have been smaller, but they are still substantial.

In the late 1960s, almost all men between the ages of 25 and 54 went to work. Only about 5 out of every 100 did not have a job in any given week. By 2000, this figure had more than doubled, to 11 out of every 100 men. This year, it’s 16. (People in the military, prison and institutions are excluded from these figures.)

“Write the Docs is a place where the art and science of documentation can be practiced and appreciated. There are a lot of people out there who write docs, but there isn’t a good place to go to find information, ask questions, and generally be a member of a community of documentarians. We hope to slowly solve this problem by building a place with high quality information about the art of writing documentation. Along with that, we hope to open communication between all the awesome people out there writing documentation.”

Как Мексика победила нефтяное проклятие с помощью бюрократии
«В результате этих национальных комплексов мексиканский частный капитал после реформ потек во все отрасли, кроме нефтяной. В 90-х к национальному частному капиталу активно присоединился иностранный, потому что Мексика заключила соглашение о создании зоны свободной торговли с США и Канадой (NAFTA). Но иностранцев к нефти тоже не подпустили. И пока вся остальная мексиканская экономика активно модернизировалась, нефтегазовая отрасль оставалась в ленивых и артритных руках древней госмонополии Pemex.»
