On a side note ... I've been spending a very large number of hours re-architecting the 10-year-old technology this site is built on – to stop the server meltdowns that are happening too frequently. The site's content and functionality should not be changing as I incrementally roll out updates, but please report any errors you find as the changes are very intrusive. The end result will be a better experience for you.

The Photographer's Ephemeris Web App
I own the Android version of The Photographer's Ephemeris and have found it quite useful on a number of occasions. It's a great tool for planning landscape photography outings. [Sean]
 
From photoephemeris.com:
 
As previously announced, On 2 September 2014, Google will permanently turn off the Google Maps for Flash API, and TPE for Desktop will be no more – at least the Adobe AIR app will be no more.
 
Its replacement is already available and waiting in the wings: our new Desktop web app. You can find it at: app.photoephemeris.com
 
We’d encourage you to head over there today and get started. You can export your saved locations from the Adobe AIR app and import them straight into the web app and carry on planning your shots without interruption.
 
You’ll need an up-to-date web browser that doesn’t block cookies or use of local storage. We’ve tested with:
 
  • Firefox 30, 31
  • Chrome 36.0.1985.125
  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Safari 7.0.5
  • Opera 23.0
So, don’t wait until the last minute: start using the new web app today and let us know what you think via the Support tab on the right hand side of the page. [thanks Mark]

IRVINE, Calif. – Aug. 19, 2014 – To commemorate the 10th anniversary of its My Passport line of portable external hard drives, WD, a Western Digital (NASDAQ: WDC) company, is introducing a sleek new design for the world’s most popular external hard drive lines. More than 60 million My Passport drives have been sold in the past 10 years, providing approximately 42,000 petabytes of content protection for consumers worldwide.

For additional content protection and remote sharing, the My Passport Ultra - Metal Edition drive includes WD SmartWare Pro software with Dropbox integration, allowing users to back up content from their computer to the drive and from the drive to the cloud, and retrieve content from their Dropbox account to the My Passport drive. These features make the My Passport drive an ideal choice for backing up, protecting, storing and enjoying digital content on the go.
 
“Ten years is a milestone by any consumer technology standard, and having the opportunity to consistently reinvent a product line like My Passport to suit the changing needs of consumers and creative professionals is something we are especially proud of,” said Tony Tate, vice president and general manager of WD’s Content Solutions unit. “We thank all of our customers for their ongoing feedback over the years, which has helped make My Passport the most popular external hard drives ever.”
