The company thinks that the current version of its venerable suite is worth a buck or two more per month.

When Google first started introducing browser-based productivity tools such as Docs and Sheets, they had something in common with much of what the company offers: They were free. In 2007, however, Google launched a premium edition of its Google Apps service—now known as G Suite—for $50 per user per year. In subsequent years, it added a $5-per-month option and advanced versions of the...

Why Instagram is giving art galleries a run for their money

With over 1 billion users and growing, Instagram has emerged as an unexpected player in the art world, bypassing traditional gatekeepers such as galleries and auction houses to connect artists and collectors, one “like” at a time.

Given that the popular social media platform was built to be a visually driven medium, it lends itself naturally to the showcase of artworks. “You can literally skip the galleries,” says Gabriel Dufourcq, a 36-year-old visual artist whose works have been...

Slack’s new logo ditches the beloved plaid hashtag

“It’s a new brand coming into maturity now. If they were ever going to change…it was the now or never moment,” says designer Michael Bierut.

Slack, the beyond-successful work collaboration platform, has launched a new, buttoned-up brand in anticipation of its 2019 IPO. The new work, led by Pentagram, kills off the company’s longstanding hashtag logo. The playful plaid is gone, too.

The world’s first artificial meteor shower is set to fly over Japan tonight

Astro Live Experiences is going to put on a show.

The world is filled with strange and wonderful things, both real (see: Maine’s spinning alien ice disk) and fake (see: Thailand’s artificial rain and China’s fake moon). Now you can add to that list an artificial meteor shower set to launch over Japan tonight/tomorrow (ugh, time zones).

Receipts are secretly really bad–why are we still using them?

Not only are they hugely wasteful, they’re also poisoning you every time you buy something.

If you walk into a neighborhood coffee shop in San Francisco and buy a drink, you’ll probably pay on a Square reader and get your receipt by email. If you walk into the Walgreens next door, you might get a foot-long paper receipt. A new bill in California aims to shift all stores to a default digital version, and raises the question of why we’re still cutting down trees and lacing paper with BPA...

Future of Technology Summit to host public showcase of personal jet-packs

The Future of Technology Summit is, in a lot of ways, the true accelerator of technological innovation and a window into the future. While the CES event (which happened just days ago) certainly commemorates the future, it presents innovation through a rather small window. CES, or the consumer electronics show, is exactly what it is. A showcase of new concepts and products within the consumer electronics domain. The Consumer Electronics Show only exhibits innovation, it doesn’t facilitate...

The Hurdle Hanger Can Organize your Clothes in Seconds

The clothes hanger is probably one of those products that each industrial designer looks at with disgust, and probably redesigns at least once in their lifetime. They’re so commonly found and horribly designed, that they’re the perfect product to relook and reinvent. I imagine YD sees at least 5 hanger redesigns each year, each better than the previous one, either improving on its strength, its eco-friendliness, or its function. The Hurdle Hanger, like all its predecessors, looks at the...
