Why square format pictures are cool, even with an iPhone or iPad

Source: AppleTell

Mary Gordon over at Macworld has posted a nifty tutorial article on taking square pictures on the iPhone’s decidedly un-square composition screen. Ms. Gordon notes that square format pictures are currently in vogue on social media and elsewhere, and presumably in recognition of that trend, iOS 7 added a dedicated Square mode.

The Best Camera Bag Is One You Put Together Yourself

Out of all the camera bags I have either used or considered- none were comfortable and functional together. To hope for a the one bag you find to be stylish as well would be flat out impossible.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
