Each week one of our staff takes a moment to compile all the useful links, downloads, videos and apps from the last five days.
This week our newest recruit April wraps up her favourite discoveries from the past five days.
Photoshop For The Web
First of all, don't get too excited. If you've ever used Photoshop, you'll know that it's prone to crashes at the most vital moments. So when you give this tongue-in-cheek web version a try, prepare for something similar!
The evolution of the desk
We all know there's almost always 'an app for that' but this brilliant video demonstrates just how much of the physical desk has been swallowed by your humble computer.
What once was all hardware - the fax machine, rolodex, clock, dictionary, Yellow Pages and calculator, are now just a few clicks away.
If you're a fan of minimalism you'll love watching this desk slowly clear itself of clutter.
The countdown to Halloween has begun, and with it a slew of fantastic, elaborate fancy dress ideas.
And is it just me, or does creating a brilliant costume every year get a bit stressful?
Yes, you could dress as a kidnapped mermaid or as the cast of Labrynth, but if you're looking for a timely costume without all the effort, how about these emoji masks. They do the smiling for you!
Foward planning pumpkins
We'll be creating our own pumpkins for this year's #orchardshrieks competition. We're doing this early to give all the entrants a design to beat!
But to really make a stand-out pumpkin this Halloween you've got to start early. One pumpkin farmer in California decided to get some attention by creating moulds that pumpkins could grow in to. After 4 years of experimentation it has finally paid off, with these 'pumpkinsteins' selling for $100 each.
