Google has updated its Google Drive online apps with a refreshed user interface. Google Docs, Drawings, Sheets, Slides, and Forms now include a colorful icon that returns users to Drive itself, while the toolbar section at the top has been made smaller, allowing more of the screen to be taken up by the files being worked on, and seemingly brings it closer in visual style to installable office suites.
Softpress has released Freeway 5.4, upgrading the website design software with an extended CSS menu creation tool and an AddThis action for social bookmarking. The upgrade also adds numerous bugfixes and several smaller enhancements to current options. The CSS menu tool adds background photo positioning, pixel-width support alignment options and undefined widths in horizontal menus.
Satirical software and news company The Daily Grind today unveiled DeIMG, a re-branding of its software That's Not A Picture, which is designed to turn images into table data, for, as the author puts it, "browsers which support tables but not images".

Usage of the application is largely in question, as the developer proudly displays users' qualms and frustration on the product's webpage.
Microsoft recently announced that it will support Acid2 and other industry standards in Internet Explorer 8, bringing the browser up to date with modern standards for displaying complex web code.

Apple want ads hint at future Watch faces
An Apple job listing for a dedicated clock face team may suggest future fashion-brand partnerships, possibly in time for the updated watchOS updates that are likely to be revealed at this spring's Worldwide Developer Conference. Since the introduction of watchOS 2, there has only been four new watch faces, but three of them were left over from the first release, with only one truly new one -- the co-branded Herm√©s face exclusive to that edition. There is a rumored March 15 event, but if that takes place it will likely focus on new band options as regards the Apple Watch. http://apple.co/1O1TbTI
