Powerful Ad campaign that raises awareness for child abuse.

 The ad is designed to empower kids, particularly if their abuser happens to be standing right next to them. 

A very innovative and clever way of getting the same message across to different audiences in a slightly alternate manner. I find this extremely effective as it can inform victims even if they are with the abuser.

This is real BS Adobe.

 For Adobe, the reasoning behind this decision is simple. According to our sources, the company had long searched for ways to stabilize its revenue. Previously, it would receive bursts of income every two years with the latest Creative Suite release. Convincing users to upgrade was a daunting task that left an impact on product decisions.

What happens when a photographer needs to edit and process in a desert with no internet connection?

Adobe CEO responded to this Tuesday.

Narayen accurately describes it as a hybrid solution. You will still install local software. The subscription model ($19.99 a month for an app or $49 a month for the full Creative Suite) means you gain access to the latest software updates as soon as they become available in the cloud, as well as all the cloud-based services and integration available to CC members.

I guess we will all see where this is heading soon enough.

Innovation is dying as there are More lawyers than creators.

Even if you fight, and you win, you still put a big bullseye on your back that other patent trolls can look for, because suddenly you’re on their radar and they think maybe you’re wounded and don’t have any more resources to fight.

The patent system is most definitely broken. If things continue the way they are, in about ten years, no one will be able to “create” anything without getting sued.

Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist on Creating the Interplanetary Internet.

Right, it’s actually not new at all – this project started in 1998. And it got started because 1997 was very nearly the 25th anniversary of the design of the internet. Bob Kahn and I did that work in 1973. So back in 1997, I asked myself what should I be doing that will be needed 25 years from then. And, after consultation with colleagues at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, we concluded that we needed much richer networking than was then available to NASA and other space faring agencies.

When I set up my new home on the Mars colony, it would be great to have access to the World Wide Web still…or more like UWW, Universe Wide Web.

The Tesla Model S is our top-scoring car by Consumer Report [VIDEO].

The electric motor delivers impressive power, right now, and it is impressively efficient. The Model S uses about half the energy of a Toyota Prius every mile, and it has more than twice the range—about 200 miles—of any other electric car we’ve driven.

Tesla CEO, Elon Musk is doing such a fantastic job. The Model S is just the second phase of his goals to release a vehicle for the masses at the $30,000 USD price range in the near future.

This is Water [VIDEO].

In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death.

If you consider yourself an intelligent and aware being, you must watch this.
