The one must-have #screenshot addition for #osx. Usually you won’t need any screenshot tools on osx as it does a fairly good job using cmd-shift-3/-4 for generating screenshots in pdf or png formats. What makes Screenshot PSD great is that it stores screenshots as psd and while preserving all objects on screen, like the Dock and windows, as separate layers, thus making it very easy to get just the part of the screen you really need.
Mac App Store – „ScreenShot PSD“
This #video is a #mustsee. Great explanation on #motivation vs #incentives.

If you do not already know the RSA Animate series, you should start watching them now. All of them.
It is extremely important for our society to stand in for freedom of speech and information and to not give in to purely commercial driven motives.
There must not be any censorship of any Internet communications whatsoever! There are sufficient laws in place in almost any country in the world to enforce publishers’ rights. No need for anything else.
What we really need are entrepreneurs with new ideas and business models to adapt to the evolving markets. Let go of old-fashioned business models. Listen to the consumer!

EU Court of Justice strikes down an anti-piracy law that would have required ISPs to filter all content, arguing that intellectual property rights are not absolute and must be balanced against other rights, including a business’ ability to operate and the protection of users’ personal data and “their freedom to receive or impart information” (aka freedom of speech).
The law “could potentially undermine freedom of information since that system might not distinguish adequately between unlawful content and lawful content, with the result that its introduction could lead to the blocking of lawful communications.”
A victory for freedom.

The two (and only two) ways Microsoft can survive the phone wars.
It is rare that I read an entire article (I know it sounds lame) AND pretty much every embedded link. But this one is really that good. Please consider reading it if you want some insights into what it will take Microsoft to win, but even more if you want to real what it takes to really win in the tech game.
Bonus: Two new concepts you’ll learn: “Specs Are Dead,” “A thousand lead bullets vs. a single silver one.“
