LG 34UM95: World’s First 34-inch Display for Creative Professionals

Wait. You say, the LG 34UM95 is actually not the world’s first 34-inch display? This is true. But it definitely is the world’s first 34-inch display for real creative professionals. Let me explain. It’s not only the size that matters here, it’s the resolution that’s the real game changer. The LG 34UM95 sports a mighty QHD resolution of 3,440 by 1,440 pixels. With a resolution like that, creative professionals might feel tempted to waive their two monitor configurations and go back to working without neck pain. Especially creative workers using Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign or those whose daily bread is the editing of audio and video, are certain to profit from the much larger width.

WP Job Manager: Free WordPress Plugin Lets You Build Your Own Job Board

Job boards have grown in popularity over the last few years. Due to the fact that more and more people work project-based rather than in lifetime occupations, searching for new jobs has become a frequent task to many of us. Especially in these cases, official job boards often fall short. Specialized boards are much better suited. So, if you maintain a service, say an online magazine, aiming at a certain industry, say designers and developers, you might have thought about integrating job board functionality already. We know, we at the Smashing family did. If you don’t have the same power to invest, a free job board plugin by the name of WP Job Manager might just be what you’re looking for.
