At 1.47 inches thick and a footprint of 16.4 by 10.7 inches, this isn’t a machine you would want to carry to Starbucks and on your shoulder all day (well I guess if you worked in the comfy offices of Dreamworks, which happens to be my dream I hope to […]

Adobe Creative Suite 5.5
Adobe kicked this week off with the release of their line of new Creative Suite 5.5 products (from Photoshop to Dreamweaver to Premiere Pro), which are moderate upgrades to the software family from their previous Creative Suite 5. Adobe is apparently going to switch from their regular 18 month cycle between software versions to a longer 24 month cycle, but adding in a “point-five (.5)” incremental upgrade in between, so 0.5 and 1.0 versions will leap-frog […]
