  • Best 50 Niche Job Boards–Design, HealthCare, More

    Where to post job open­ings? Niche job boards attract top tal­ent, giv­ing you qual­i­ty can­di­dates with expe­ri­ence or inter­est in your spe­cif­ic indus­try. Niche sites to post jobs include not only niche job boards, but also niche com­mu­ni­ties and pub­li­ca­tions. In post­ing 125,000+ jobs for 25,000+ com­pa­nies, SmartRecruiters found that 62% of open jobs are post­ed to niche job sites. Niches are just a good way to tar­get what­ev­er type of tal­ent you are look­ing for.”

  • This Video of Steve Jobs Led to Invalidation of Apple’s Patent

    A German court recent­ly sided with Samsung (SSNLF​.PK) and Google’s (NASDAQ:GOOG) Motorola Mobility and declared one of Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) so-called “rubber-banding” patents to be invalid based on the con­tent of a six-year old video pre­sen­ta­tion by Steve Jobs, reports Foss Patents. Under German law, pub­lic demon­stra­tions of an inven­tion before the patent is filed can be used as exam­ples of pri­or art when decid­ing whether or not to grant a patent.

  • 8 Really Geeky But Creative Ways To Use QR Codes At Home

Here are a few I put togeth­er with some nice exam­ples found around the web. If you believe in doing things dif­fer­ent­ly, read on.”

  • 14 weird and won­der­ful uses for Helvetica

  • Attorneys: Patent Law Differences Invalidate Apple Patent in Germany But Hold Up in U.S., Japan #PTO #Patent

    Since Jobs pub­licly unveiled the rubber-banding fea­ture dur­ing the orig­i­nal iPhone pre­sen­ta­tion five months before pri­or­i­ty date for the German patent, his demon­stra­tion of this fea­ture was an eli­gi­ble exam­ple of pri­or art. It should be not­ed that, at the time of Jobs’s pre­sen­ta­tion, European patent laws did not allow inven­tors any grace peri­od before fil­ing their patent appli­ca­tions.

  • Men should wear make­up: Looking younger and bet­ter isn’t just for women. – Slate

    “You know, you don’t real­ly need make­up,” Rose Hill told me when we first met. We were at Hill’s stu­dio in Los Gatos, Calif., where I’d come to see what a good make­up artist could do for a man (i.e., for me). Hill, who’s 60, has been doing make­up for film, tele­vi­sion, the­ater, and com­mer­cial pho­tog­ra­phy since she was a teenag­er. She’s worked on Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, every tech exec­u­tive you can name, and Hugh Jackman—“my most favoritest per­son in the whole world,” she said as I thumbed through her port­fo­lio.”

  • Rules of Graphic Design Poster Series

    The Rules of Graphic Design poster series was designed to present a daunt­ing amount of infor­ma­tion in the most acces­si­ble and approach­able man­ner. Swiss International style’s influ­ence is appar­ent in the ratio­nal use of grid struc­ture, high­ly con­trast­ing col­or scheme, reduc­tion of infor­ma­tion to its most nec­es­sary attrib­ut­es, and use of a sans serif type­face. I rephrased all of the rules I was pre­sent­ed with, extrap­o­lat­ed and fleshed out para­graphs describ­ing the rea­son­ing behind the basis of each rule, and devel­oped an exam­ple for each one.”

  • Are Requests for Proposals a waste of mon­ey?
    “Requests for Proposals are com­mon­place for any agency. But Brian Pullen believes RFPs are wast­ing time and mon­ey, and that there are bet­ter ways to hire agen­cies.
