Goodbye Macworld After two decades in print, Macworld announced this week that the print magazine will shut down. Jason Snell was Macworld’s lead editor for more than a decade, and – along with many of his former colleagues – is moving on. Jason has launched a new site, Six Colors, where he will continue covering Apple and the technology industry at large. We asked him to reflect on his experience as one of the industry’s most prolific Apple watchers.

There’s a new OS for the iPhone. It’s called iOS 8. Why? Apple won’t say.
Regardless, we’ve got a new Tumblr app out today that takes advantage of iOS 8’s improved sharing features. Make a photo post right from your Photos app, for example. Or a link post right from Safari. Couldn’t be easier.
Also: Posts are now the full width of the screen. That means photos are 3% larger than before. Sounds like a little, feels like a lot.

In July of 2010 I asked Apple if they could get the app names to cooperate with the accelerometer (at the time I was talking about the multitasker, specifically). During the iPhone 6 event last week, they finally delivered. Honestly, I’m really digging that side dock. Thanks.

Microsoft to acquire Minecraft maker Mojang for $2.5 billion

Microsoft Corp said on Monday it has agreed to acquire Stockholm-based games developer Mojang and the company’s wildly popular Minecraft video game franchise for $2.5 billion.

Microsoft said in a statement it expects the acquisition to be break-even in fiscal year 2015 on a GAAP basis. The deal is expected to close in late 2014.

"Gaming is a top activity spanning devices, from PCs and consoles to tablets and mobile, with billions of hours spent each year," said Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.

"Minecraft is more than a great game franchise – it is an open world platform, driven by a vibrant community we care deeply about, and rich with new opportunities for that community and for Microsoft."

Microsoft said it plans to continue to make Minecraft available across all the platforms on which it is available today: PC, iOS, Android, Xbox and PlayStation.

Visual Storytelling in Regulated Industries
Communicators in highly regulated industries such as healthcare must consider the compliance and privacy laws governing their business before experimenting with new content trends.
