The Next Issue Team

ForbesUnder30-iPhone6-380Forbes launched app for younger readers called Forbes Under 30 in late July, with its first update earlier this month. Last night it issued another.

The app had an official coming out party in San Francisco on the 5th of this month, but there will be sort of officially launched at the second annual Forbes Under 30 Summit in Philadelphia, October 4-7, 2015.

The app was developed with the support of Tinder, and Forbes is calling that company’s involvement with the app all about business networking, if you believe that.

“Forbes’ 30 Under 30 lists bring together the most influential and accomplished young entrepreneurs and game changers. Our Under 30 app is a tool we developed to better connect, empower and mobilize this community to help change the world,” said Salah Zalatimo, Head of Mobile Products at Forbes.

OK, whatever you say.

The Associated Press also issued a bug fix update for is iPad and iPhone app AP Mobile late yesterday.

Apple’s update for OS X Yosemite was for camera RAW support. Apple issues the occasional update for RAW whenever new cameras are launched for the small group of photographers that use the format.

This update adds support for the Canon PowerShot G3 X, the Leica Q (Typ 116) and a few others.

If you’ve never used RAW in your own camera you might give it a try. It generally produces the best results, retaining more information than compressed formats. The reason for the need to update OS X for RAW is that everyone has their own file format for it. You can learn more about RAW file formats at the Wikipedia page for it.
