less than six months Microsoft will end support for Windows 7

Updated 14.8.2019

Logo

It’s hard to believe that in less than six months Microsoft will end support for Windows 7, which has been an incredibly successful product.

Strictly speaking, come January 14, 2020, the OS will continue to work, but unless you want to pay for extended security updates (only available for the Pro and Enterprise versions, not Home), you’re unnecessarily burdening yourself with significant security risks. Experts warn that there are many attackers waiting to strike at the End of Support and those risks will increase every day you use Windows 7 after January 14. So please: If you are running Windows 7, make a plan to move to Windows 10 soon. If you are unsure of how to avoid becoming a victim, please reach out to us.

Regardless of the Windows OS on your current PC, use PCmover to automatically move important applications, files and settings to the new PC! On average PCmover will save you 4 hours of time moving all the important pictures, music, documents, and even applications with settings.

Apple will be releasing macOS 10.15 Catalina this fall. Apple has made the decision to drop all 32-bit application support with this release, which will impact EndNote.

EndNote X9 for macOS will be extensively updated for compatibility prior to the launch of Catalina. If you already have EndNote X9, please install all updates as they become available to avoid interruption in your workflow.

If you are running EndNote X8 or earlier, we recommend upgrading to EndNote X9 as based on early information from Apple, your current version will not work with macOS Catalina. Alternately, you may keep working on your current macOS version.

What kind of designs make it to the best-seller lists?

Updated 19.7.2019

Logo

You might think a lot of science goes into designing the cover of a best-selling summer novel: data from booksellers, perhaps, showing that romance covers with indigo script fonts have a 23% better chance of reaching the New York Times best-seller list, for example.

The reality is that book jacket design is more about following the prevailing trends and gut feelings. When you’re designing the book jacket for a potential blockbuster, there’s a lot of gut feelings in the mix: authors, agents, publishers, booksellers, and so on, all of whom have their own opinions about what makes a perfect cover.

Get inspired from the list from the link below!
