In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at the photo storage business, more Chicago Sun-Times layoffs, a 1 Nikkor 10-30mm service advisory and a Scott Schuman story.

  • Casey Newton explains Why every photo storage startup dies or gets acquired. "So far, no one has been able to build a beautiful digital home for our photos and turn it into a sustainable, independent business."
  • Jim Romenesko reports the Chicago Sun-Times has "dismantled its video team, the group that was expected to replace the 28 staff photographers laid off in 2013.
  • Nikon has issued a 1 Nikkor 10-30mm zoom service advisory. "When the 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f3.5-5.6 lens is used for an extended period of time or zoom operations are frequently repeated, proper communication with the camera may not occur, which may cause an error message to be displayed in the camera monitor, and the lens may not function properly."
  • Lovely story by Scott Schuman at The Sartorialist. "I knew I would find her every morning at the Armani Cafe," it begins.

More to come...
