Lytro releases major update to ILLUM light field camera suite

Lytro releases major update to ILLUM light field camera suite

It's been more than a year since Lytro launched its ILLUM camera, an innovative and, at the same time, somewhat contentious digital camera that seemingly made photographs jump to life thanks to the magic of light field photography. Since then, some smartphones have claimed some, or at least one, of those features, namely, the ability to change focus after the fact. The ILLUM, however, still retains an edge and, to keep up with the times, Lytro has announced its first major update that adds new viewing and editing powers to both the camera and to its desktop software.

Facebook has updated its friends icon design, too

Facebook has updated its friends icon design, too

The first day of this month brought with it a refreshed Facebook logo, one that differed just enough from the original that most users could stare at it for a while and wonder if something was different. The change, it seems, was to make the logo a little more modern, a little more relevant, while retaining its defining characteristics. That wasn’t the end of the social network’s design tinkering, however, and one of its designer's recently detailed how the friends icon was tweaked in recent months.

Anyone outside of those regions will eventually get access to it, but it won’t be for a little while.

Facebook has subtly redesigned its logo

Facebook has subtly redesigned its logo

Companies update their logos on occasion -- sometimes drastically, sometimes subtly. Facebook has quietly updated its own, and it has gone with the latter of the two extremes. The changes are subtle, and if you aren't the type to pay much attention to such things you might not have even noticed. Those who are familiar with the old Facebook logo will notice a couple slight differences, though, with the letter “a” being the biggest difference: it has been changed to reflect how most people write it rather than the traditional typist style. Other letters like the “k” hardly changed at all.
