EU to Charge Microsoft for Competition Violation this Month - Report - www.capital.gr

EU to Charge Microsoft for Competition Violation this Month - Report - www.capital.gr | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

The European Commission will bring charges against U.S. software company Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) this month for violating the European Union's competition rules, German magazine Der Spiegel reports Sunday, without saying where it got the information.

Microsoft fears it is facing a penalty fee worth billions of euros that could be pronounced this year, the magazine reports.

The dispute relates to Microsoft's promise in late 2009 to offer users alternatives to its own Internet Explorer web browser that is pre installed on most Windows personal computers. In practice, users in the EU should see a window pop up on their computer screen, allowing them to choose from as many as a dozen different web browser

Computer programming: who is teaching our children to code?

Computer programming: who is teaching our children to code? | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it
Talk of a 'tech boom' is enticing to politicians and jobseekers alike. But who is actually teaching our children how to code? Cal Flyn meets the industry experts trying to fill the gaps left by schools' ICT classes.

By relying on a curriculum that centres on word processing programs, and shrinks from hard skills like coding, we are entrusting the future of the British tech industry to the teenagers who teach themselves these skills at home in their spare time, experts say.

Want to learn how to code? Here are six useful websites:

Storylane Combats Social Media Glibness With A Sharing Platform For In-Depth Stories And Opinions | TechCrunch

Storylane Combats Social Media Glibness With A Sharing Platform For In-Depth Stories And Opinions | TechCrunch | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

One of the often repeated criticisms of social media is that it tends to be glib and shallow. That’s a simplification, but I think it has some truth to it — when I’m on a site like Twitter, I’m usually looking for (and sharing) jokes, tidbits of news, and random observations.

Jonathan Gheller is hoping to go in the opposite direction with a new site called Storylane, which is all about highlighting content that’s more sincere and in-depth. That content can take the form of text, images, or audio. For example, if you go to Gheller’s profile, you can find stories about the crucial investor in his previous startup Fashmatch, or recounting the happiest moment of his life.

Amazon extending Kindle Owners' Lending Library to the UK, Germany and France this month

Amazon extending Kindle Owners' Lending Library to the UK, Germany and France this month | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it
Amazon's Kindle Owners' Lending Library has grown considerably since launching in the US, and it looks like the company's finally decided it was time to let some other countries in on the service as well. It announced today that Amazon Prime members in the UK, Germany and France would all have access to the service "later this month," although it's not providing a specific date just yet. As in the US, it will let folks borrow up to one book a month for free, with over 200,000 titles available to choose from (including "thousands" in the countries' local languages). Alongside that expansion, Amazon has also announced yet another increase (of $100,000) to its Kindle Direct Publishing Select fund -- which pays independent authors who include their books in the Lending Library -- with an even bigger one planed for November. No word yet on any additional countries next in line.

Cadbury wins exclusive use of Pantone 2685C purple | Design Week

Cadbury wins exclusive use of Pantone 2685C purple | Design Week | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it
The chocolate brand has won a High Court battle for exclusive rights to use the purple colour in chocolate packaging. ...

The brand, which has used the purple for more than 90 years, has been locked in a legal battle with rival chocolate brand Nestlé for the last four years over the use of the colour.

Kraft-owned branded Cadbury had won a trademark ruling last December over the right to use the colour exclusively for chocolate bar and drink packaging. This was challenged by Nestlé, which claimed the colours could not be used as trademarks.

Nestlé’s appeal was overturned yesterday in the High Court, where it was ruled that the colour has been distinctive of Cadbury for milk chocolate since 1914.

A Cadbury spokesman says, ‘We welcome the decision of the High Court which allows us to register as a Trade Mark and protect our famous Colour Purple across a range of milk chocolate products.

‘Our Colour Purple has been linked with Cadbury for more than a century and the British public have grown up understanding its link with our chocolate.’

The trademark applies to milk chocolate bars and drinks only.

10 Creative Ways to Use Instagram for Business | Art - Craft - Design- Net | Scoop.it

Here's everything you need to know about sharing photos on this mobile app to give your business extra visibility and engagement.

 

Are you thinking about putting your business on Instagram? Are you looking for content ideas for this increasingly popular mobile social platform? Read further to discover how you can use Instagram to give your business extra visibility and better engage with the Instagram community.

 

What Is Instagram?
Instagram is a free mobile photo-sharing app with 80 million users and counting. It has seen many changes lately.

 

Instagram was acquired by Facebook in April 2012, launched a redesign on iOS that includes a new “Explore” tab and is rumored to be developing a web presence (so that users can see photos online, not just on the mobile app).

 

Social media management platform HootSuite also recently announced the addition of Instagram to its app directory. This gives HootSuite users access to almost all of Instagram’s features, which include searching, viewing and liking content, adding comments and sharing photos to other social platforms.

 

Clearly, Instagram is an up-and-coming photo-focused social platform not to be ignored. So what can your brand do with it?

 

Here are 10 creative ways your business can use Instagram.
