Showcase of Creative Magazine Covers
"I have to admit I'm not much of a reader… in the traditional book sense. However, if a nice featured image or witty title of a blog post catches my eye, I'm pretty hooked. But in terms of printed reading material, magazines still find their way into my hands. Here's my theory on how to tell if a magazine has great cover art: It's not actually a page turner. The graphic on the front is so good, it just makes you hang on. I've attached a blog article showcasing some great cover art. Enjoy!"

Facebook Takes a Stand against employers who request passwords
By: Sarah Kessler
"I thought this article was very surprising since I haven’t heard of employers asking for Facebook passwords. It makes me wonder what other types of social media or electronics employers will want access to in the future, and if they will find a loophole around the guidelines and rules."

Adobe Photoshop CS6 Beta
"Adobe this week released a beta for Photoshop CS6. The long-awaited update has some awesome new features, such as content aware patch, new design tools, and even a new user interface. What’s great about the beta is that it has all of the new features that you will find when the retail version comes out. The beta will only work until the retail version is released, so definitely give it a try while you can."

National Day Of Unplugging Wants You To Power Down for 24 Hours
By: Samantha Murphy
"The thought of not checking my phone, email or social networks for 24 hours is frightening! It’s sad to think how attached most of us are to our electronic devices- to the point of checking them repeatedly throughout the day. The purpose of the day is to re-connect with family, friends and oneself, away from technology! I am going to try and make an effort to not check my phone or social networks. We will see how it goes!"

Why You Empowered = Better World (+ 4 Social Empowerment Tips)
By: Eric Harr
"This is another article I absolutely love by Eric Harr. He explains how wonderful and powerful social media is. Social media does more than allow businesses to get their offers out and spread their name. People all over the world have a voice with social media. And a loud one at that.. People are using social media to change the world. Social media has become revolutionary because it has the ability to empower people to join together for a cause. One part of his article really sums up his message perfectly, "Social media provides an opportunity for you to be true to the best you know. Put out stellar content. Be enchanting; people prefer to do business with people they like. Work towards a common cause, help others and change the world! Those are the most empowering acts of all." I think we can all learn something from this piece. Enjoy!"
