Dashing, just dashing

The Comms Creative blog on dashes:

  • Hyphens join words: eg. they’re word-joiners.
  • En dashes are a bit longer than hyphens. They’re the width of the letter ‘N’, and they show range: eg. 14–16 cm.
  • The em dash is the width of the letter M & used when emphasis is required — like when you’re trying to make a point.

The fate of the servers, the fate of the cameras

Om Malik sees similarities between cameras and servers:

But mostly, our pictures — even the best ones — function as glorified postcards on Instagram, Facebook, or some other messaging app. No one on WhatsApp cares if you made a photo in 50 megapixels or 12 megapixels Just as, in the cloud, no one gives two hoots if your server is Sun, Dell or HP.

I think he’s onto something. I also agree with him: I love my camera.
