Moments to Go Away Forever: Facebook Gets Rid of Photo-Sharing App

It's always sad to say “goodbye” to another photo app, but such is the cycle of life – especially when it comes to smartphone photography. Facebook is closing down shop on its Moments app because no one is really using it.

Launched in 201...

The facts about Facebook

This is a critical reading of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s article in the WSJ on Thursday, also entitled The Facts About Facebook.  Yes Mark, you’re right; Facebook turns 15 next month. What a long time you’ve been in the social media business! We’re curious as to whether you’ve also been keeping count of how many times you’ve been forced to apologize for breaching people’s trust or, well, otherwise royally messing up over the years. It’s also true you weren’t setting out to build “a...

Could the Future of Skincare Shopping Eliminate the Need For In-Store Beauty Consultants?

If you're invested in skin care - and if you buy skincare products, you know it's often an investment - there's a few shopping options we've all grown accustomed to: purchasing online after reading or watching reviews, deciding to buy after seeing a post (or more likely, #ad) on Instagram, or taking a chance in a store. The latter has been somewhat of an alleged ghost town for consumers; in 2019, we have everything we need at our fingertips. I say "alleged" because many publications like to cove...

Photography Insurance is (not?) Worth It. Here’s Why

When you have a moment, open up your camera bag and take a look. Then estimate the value of that’s bag’s contents. It’s a scary amount, isn’t it? Now think a little further, is all your equipment in that one bag? I bet it’s not. Add in the values of all the photographic equipment you have in drawers and lockers. Now imagine losing that gear to theft, fire or any other catastrophe. It’s going to take some serious money to replace.   The answer, of course, is to have insurance. Or so the insuranc...

So is that video tangible proof that the idea was stolen and enough to get the thief to cease and desist? I read that there’s no legal consequences if we were to still g...
