Adobe Systems announced a new subscription plan for photography enthusiasts, a $10-per-month bundle of Lightroom and Photoshop that's designed to cater to people dissatisfied with Adobe's previous Creative Cloud options.
The deal is a good price -- Photoshop alone costs $10 per month for existing Creative Suite customers, but only for a limited time, after which it jumps to $20 per month. The new subscription package offers Photoshop, Lightroom, 20GB of cloud storage space, and access to Adobe's Behance network. The new bundle is $10 a month with no expiration date. It will be available once Adobe … Read more
The service, available over the Web or through iOS and Android apps, lets people read content published with RSS and Atom feeds, a technology Google concluded wasn't mainstream enough to bother with. Plenty of others disagreed, lamenting the loss of Google Reader, and Feedly is among those trying to make a business out of Google's withdrawal.
YouTube changed the look of its subscriptions page a few years ago, moving from a grid layout to a single-column view that requires a great deal more scrolling to view its wares. If you've been pining for the good ol' days of the My subscriptions grid view, there is an easy fix for Chrome and Firefox.
For Firefox, install the YouTube Subscriptions Grid add-on. After installing it and refreshing your subscriptions page, you'll see a grid layout with a lot less wasted space. On my 13-inch MacBook Pro, which features a 1,280x800-pixel screen resolution, the grid goes … Read more

We rely on cloud services more and more every day, trusting service providers with our data. But as Google Reader users know all too well, it's sometimes necessary to take that data elsewhere. Many Google Reader users have migrated to Feedly, and the subscription data that once lived on Google's servers now resides on Feedly's. Feedly just recently added the ability to export your feeds to an OPML file, so if Feedly shuts its doors like Google Reader did, you can use it to import your feeds to another reader. Here's how:
Step 1: From the … Read more
If you're still hanging on to Google Reader, it's time to let it go. After Monday, Google Reader will no longer be available. People with only a few subscriptions will be able to migrate to another service without much hassle, but those with more than just a few will want the option to bulk-import the subscription data. Even if you don't move the data to a new service right away, it'll be nice to have for future reference.
To export your Google Reader data, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Go to Reader settings, then click … Read more
Adobe Systems' competitors smell blood in the water.
Having seen the torrent of criticism that greeted the company's move last month exclusively to subscription sales for most of its software, many are launching promotions and otherwise scrambling to win over the disaffected.
"We've put in place our outreach program to users, saying, 'Hey, come and try us,'" said Nick Davies, general manager of Corel's digital media and productivity software group. Corel launched a promotion that lets Adobe CS4, CS5, and CS6 users buy Corel software for the upgrade price rather than the full price.
