You've been putting this off for long enough. Let's make a website, let's make it right now -- and let's use all that is great about WordPress, while avoiding all its nudges into spending money. We have nothing against spending money, we'd rather you spent it getting the best value for yourself. Perhaps we're wrong and unfair, but feel as if WordPress is always crossing its fingers and hoping you won't notice how it cajoles you into options you don't need.
If you use WordPress as some impossible millions of people do, then it's a fair bet that you do most of the heavy lifting work like adding whole new pages and managing ecommerce via the website WordPress.com. It's likely that you use WordPress's free iOS app to write blog posts on the go. Now the service has a desktop OS X app called WordPress.com 1.2.1 and it's not going to change the way you work just yet. It may do some day, though, and there are reasons to use it even now.
As recommended in MacNN editor Charles Martin's Apps We Can't Live Without article, Fluid 1.8.4 is a simple essential. It's not been updated in a while, but it doesn't need to be: it does one thing and does it well. Fluid takes any website, and turns it into an OS X app.

There is a far greater chance that you'll remember and be able to tell them that you got it via bitly.com/buy-a-great-book-and-maybe-a-car. This Pointers is about how you create those customized links.
As part of an ongoing revamp focused on greater integration between online and retail experiences, Apple has made some changes to its now-integrated retail areas of the its website, specifically to clean up and consolidate workshop scheduling and appointments. The new system is similar to the Genius Bar reservation system, and allows users to quickly locate workshops, One to One classes, and Joint Venture events.
URLs are ugly – and they are also very daunting if you're new to the web. So long as they're up there in the browser and you just got to the site by clicking a heading in Google, nobody cares. Yet when you send them to someone, that's when you can put them off or you can make their life easier. It's also where you can demonstrate that you know your stuff. There is one important caveat to this but otherwise this Pointers will show you how to make emails with links that simply look better than sending someone a five-foot-long string of dots and slashes. The specific steps in this tutorial are all for Mail in OS X Yosemite.
Apple on Thursday updated its French website with a black "armband" and the phrase "Je suis Charlie" in sympathy over the terrorist attack and murder of cartoonists from the satiric magazine Charlie Hebdo, which also killed at least one police officer. The attackers were allegedly offended by the publication's routine attacks on extremist elements of the Islamic faith, although the publications also regularly exposed hypocrisy and provoked offense among other religious followers as well.
A "malvertising" campaign made the rounds last week hitting at least eight high-profile websites according to security firm Fox-IT. The firma noticed that the sites were redirecting their visits to other places, allowing it to discover that sites were using vulnerabilities in software like Java and Flash to inject malicious programs. The purpose of the "malvertising" was to infect machines with botnet malware involved in boosting advertisement clicks.
As is Google tradition, another feature it is testing was recently released to the public while still in a beta phase.
