Some good stuff. Pixelmator is 50% off, if Adobe’s CC offerings are too dear for your overstressed wallet.
The Verge: Adobe’s got Photoshop running in Chrome.
Ask DN: What’s your use case for Evernote?
Of note. Thread should mature more as the day goes on.
If you update to the latest Evernote for Mac ...
... and you seem to be missing the last month or so of notes, don’t panic. Hit the “Updated” column title a couple of times to re-sort. Nothing’s missing, it just has a bit of brain fog.
Envato: Critical Security Vulnerability in WordPress Versions 3 to 3.9.
FYI, if you haven’t already heard.
AppleInsider: Adobe announces Lightroom 5.7 with new Aperture and iPhoto importer tool.
That, and a slew of other CC updates.
PS Mag: Online Brain Exercises Are Probably Useless.
The Register: That dreaded syncing feeling: Will Microsoft EVER fix OneDrive?
“Sync failures are perhaps the biggest frustration for Office 365 users and those who support them, and when it happens the usual advice is to delete and resync everything, with possible loss of recently changed files.” Beware.

Building a CustoMac: Buyer’s Guide October 2014.

High Performance Lifestyle: Productivity Tools - 61 Experts Reveal Their Top 3 Choices
Indianapolis Business Journal: The tragedy of electronic medical records.
FYI. I’ve related my experience of a year or so ago ... sitting while a physician’s attendant hunt-and-pecked information into an EHR system for 45 minutes, something I volunteered to do and could have performed in five. Afterwards, they *still* screwed up insurance/billing.

Art of VFX: BBC ‘God Only Knows’ - Behind The Work.
So much green screen these days. It must be so hard for actors.
TechCrunch: Microsoft Gives Developers More Ways To Integrate With Office 365.
OneDrive Blog: OneDrive delivers unlimited cloud storage to Office 365 subscribers.
Well, now. That’s going to hurt the other drive vendors. Many of us have to get an Office365 account just to have a current copy of MS Word to open client docs with. Smart.
Bare Bones Software: BBEdit 11.
Automatic purchase! BBEdit still does things noone else does; I use it daily, and have for over a decade - no exaggeration. Note that I also use mine as a way to store text docs with client server specs, serial #‘s, etc. I don’t trust the modern password progs by themselves. I like having plain text backups in multiple secure spots.
AustinMann: Yosemite + iOS 8.1 — What Photographers Need to Know.
‘Twas only a matter of time. There were enough complains about the new use of Helvetica.

Adobe Blogs: Photoshop & Mac OSX 10.10 (Yosemite).
To date, no issues reported. Good to know.
OS X 10.10 Yosemite: The Ars Technica Review.
Voluminous and detailed, as per usual. I agree with Ars here: “The standard rules apply. Don’t upgrade until all the applications you care about are compatible. Make sure you have good backups. Point-zero releases are always a little more risky.”
Helftone: Mac App Store - The Subtle Exodus.
Apple Insider: IDG cancels Macworld/iWorld 2015 conference, says show ‘going on hiatus’.
Wowzer. End of an era, indeed.
