In Wordpress 3.9 the editor gets a huge upgrade.

WordPress is continually improving itself for both developers and end users -and in  this latest release, things get pretty snazzy for the end user.

If you are familiar with editing your own Blog posts and pages you probably have accepted that what you see in  the editor isn't always what you get.  Sometimes it's completely different and that can be frustrating.

3.9 has features like interactive image sizing right in the editor and a bunch of other awesome features.

Upgrade your installation as soon as possible and check out all the features on your dashboard!   Very impressive.

New: Add-ons for Google Docs & Sheets

We all have printed shipping labels at some point in our life time. Always best to get the Avery template you need in MS Word right?

Been a MailChimp fan for a while and I know a lot of my customers use it.

And I know a lot of people who write for a living and email word documents back and forth for approvals. 

Looks like Google Apps docs and spreadsheets got a lot more user friendly for business.  You can now search and install addons that allow you to do things like print Avery labels, Design emails for MailChimp, and get approvals on documents you are producing for your boss or even freelance writing.  

Here's Google's video on this great new feature.

Time Warner Increases it's Download Speed for it's customers.

Nora called me this morning to say she got a message from Time Warner Cable that they were doubling our business internet speed from 50mbps to 100mbps and we just needed to reset our router to get the increase.  

For all the details, I immediately searched for the actual online news from Time Warner and found it here:  http://www.timewarnercable.com/en/about-us/press/twc_announces_internet_speed_upgrades.html#

I had been having problems with our internet on yesterday (Monday) and had already reset our router.  So I went to speedtest.net and was impressed at the results for the download (113mbps) but dismayed at our crappy upload (5mbps).

As a web developer and film editor, 5mbps upload is horrendous. I finish a 2GB video for a customer, upload it to my website (CrestVFX.com), and get to wait about an hour or more depending on the time of day. 

If they could double my upload to 10mbps, on the plan I'm on, that would be great.  But they won't.

Just got this text from Nora:
"So I just called Time Warner. The only watt to get more up time is to get the fiber with 10 down 10 up dedicated line and it would be $999 per month. Such a fucking joke. We will stick with our lousy 5 till I can campaign Google to put fiber here."

Google fiber is over 1000mbps up 1000mbps down for $70 a month.

In Google's own words:
"Google Fiber will provide an internet connection speed of one gigabit per second for both download and upload. This is 1,024 megabits per second, or 128 megabytes per second (there are 8 bits in a byte), or roughly 100 times faster access than what most Americans have."

By comparison, my 2GB video file would take 17 seconds to upload.

The good news is that Google is expanding it's Fiber market and it will be available sometime in the future in southern california, but there's no saying when.  

Also, Google isn't stopping at 1000mbps.  They have plans in motion to increase their top speeds up to 10,000mbps (10gbps).
http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2014/02/12/google-10-gigabit-internet-speeds/5421709/

At 10gbps, my 2GB video would take 1 second to upload. In this article by USA today, the target is to acchieve this in 3 years for consumers.

+Rusty Ricafort Yeah.  Notice that it's not even a video -it's a photo. If this was actual video footage, you'd know it was a scratch on the windshield instantly.  Blows me away that it has almost 2 million views.  The dislikes say it all.

Google Storage plans get 5 times better.

I got an email from Google today saying that the 200GB of storage I pay them $9.99 a month for is going to now increase to 1TB.

Awesome considering all my working client files, photos and videos are taking up almost all my space.  Changing away from my old expensive legacy plan to the new one is a no-brainer.  

Wonder how DropBox and other providers are going to respond to this? Google was already cheaper.
Now it's ridiculously cheaper.
Plus it's all integrated with Gmail and other services.

As I right this, DropBox is still offering 100GB of storage for $9.99. That's 10 times more expensive then storing your stuff in Google Drive.  

With More and More video editing and visual effects work coming my way,  This is awesome  for my business.  Thank you Google.
