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 Nazik Armenakyan, World Book and Copyright Day, Apple's True Tone display and an Earth Day discount at Rocky Nook.

  • In Survivors of the Armenian Genocide, James Estrin presents 20 of Nazik Armenakyan's portraits of people who were only children when the Ottoman Empire began its systematic campaign against them in 1914. "Those who stayed alive managed to preserve only their lives," Avag Harutyunyan tells her. Armenians commemorate April 24, 1915, as the start of the genocide that last into 1917.
  • Tomorrow is World Book and Copyright Day. Among the observances, the Professional Photographers of America has launched "a new advocacy website,, dedicated solely to explaining copyright protection and legislative changes, as well as helping photographers advocate for their rights."
  • In Looking at the Future, Craig Hockenberry considers the revolution in display technology introduced by Apple's True Tone 9.7-inch iPad Pro. A wider gamut than sRGB with chromatic adaptation and color management herald a new era in what we can see on our screens. And there's a book forthcoming on it, too. Meanwhile Brandon Chester explains How DCI-P3 & True Tone Work in the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.
  • Rocky Nook is celebrating Earth Day with a 45 percent discount on all ebooks. The discount is available through April 26 when you use the code EARTHDAY at checkout.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
