EBay to buy Skype

12 September 2005

Woah. Ebay to buy Skype for $2.6bn. That’s a whole lotta cash, and not necessarily coming from who I might have expected. I’m still mulling on the significance of this.

Quark rebrand

12 September 2005

So whilst everyone’s been talking about the Guardian‘s brand new look, a far less significant relaunch almost slipped under the radar. Fortunately, my work email tells me that Quark have rebranded and redesigned their site. All looks a bit shiny to me; quite like the new “Q” logotype, the site’s pretty enough, but I’m not a fan of the pale grass-green at all. Is the whole lot just too futuristic for the slightly cranky product? We’ll see. The preview of Quark 7 essentially suggests it’s playing serious catchup to Indesign CS2 (at long last).
