Ads for Mobile Content Designed for Small-Screen Viewing
by Miles Weston

Maybe they are that important, that good but it has also enabled more people - especially younger folks with shorter attention spans - to install ad blockers.

Ransomware exploits, destruction of servers and the theft of terabytes of data are all part of the pandemic cybersecurity crisis that challenges any organization reliant upon terrestrial networks to store and transport data. Fortunately, that is about to change. Civil War Action VR Goes to War - A Letter from the Trench

For the last month I've been using the Tenba Ceneluxe Shoulder Bag 24, and it has moved to the top of my list of bags that make it easy to store my cameras and take them on the road.
