RIP Popular Photography

DPReview:

The upcoming March/April issue will be the last, and as of Friday, March 10th, no new content will be published on PopPhoto.com. This news comes after the publication switched to a bi-monthly print schedule about six months ago. 

Sad (if unsurprising) news—I still read Popular Photography regularly via my local library’s digital magazine bookshelf. Photo (and photo gear) blogs may have eaten up a lot of the attention and readership that Popular Photography used to command, but I still appreciated the way a coherent editorial vision could be expressed through a monthly (and later, bi-monthly) issue.

The State of iBooks in Early 2017

Michael E. Cohen with a good post on iBooks: The State of iBooks in Early 2017. I still miss dearly-departed Readmill, but I’ve settled in ok with iBooks in terms of making my epub books available across all my devices.

Occasionally, iBooks forgets to bookmark my current place in a book so it opens to the wrong page on another device.
