Welcome! This week our roundup of interesting and noteworthy publishing industry stories focuses on the evolving role of mobile editor, how the competing strategies of Apple and Google are putting pressure on publishers, Microsoft's approach to future computing devices, big numbers for Quartz videos, and more.
Mobile editor is a role defined by "motion and change," according to Wall Street Journal's David Ho. He says the position requires not only news experience, but also the ability to quickly respond to new technologies, tasks, workflows, and trends.  

The competing strategies of Apple and Google mean publishers have to either pour money into both apps and websites or make hard choices between the two. And that's especially true for smaller publishers struggling to keep up.

Microsoft's approach to personal computing is becoming increasingly expansive, one report says, noting the company sees a future where all kinds of devices are used alongside smartphones.

Quartz videos are getting a lot of attention on Facebook and YouTube, with 45 million views on the platforms in just six months. Its three-member team set out to learn how to "master" natively distributed video and is now looking at ways to monetize it.
