SoftPressRelease (1964162) writes "ReaSoft Development, a well-known software development company, has announced the release of ReaConverter 6. This advanced image converter facilitates such tasks as image conversion and editing, allowing the user to process multiple images without spending much time on it. The solution supports more than 400 source formats including raw, archaic and rare ones.

ReaConverter was developed as a great time saver: it does not take much time to process an image or two, but if you have to deal with hundreds of images every day, it may take hours. Batch conversion and processing will make it quicker and easier! The clear interface of ReaConverter guarantees that even novice users will have no difficulties — it is extremely easy to browse folders and to make a list of files to be processed. But the functionality of ReaConverter will satisfy even the most demanding professionals.

First of all, ReaConverter 6 can work with an astounding number of source formats. Besides common image formats, it supports PostScript based files (PDF, EPS, PS, AI), metafiles such as EMF or WMF, raw images, vector files, archaic and rare image formats. As for output formats, there are more than 60 common and advanced ones.

Moreover, ReaConverter allows editing images either one by one or in batches. The user can compose an action set consisting of several actions (crop, rotate, resize, sharpen, blur, change resolution, etc.) and apply it to a file or a batch of files. Frequently used action sets can be saved and re-used whenever necessary.

ReaConverter 6 is available in three editions: Lite, Standard and Pro. The Lite edition is meant for home users: it features basic editing actions and batch conversion of most common image formats such as JPEG, TIFF, BMP, GIF and PNG. The Standard edition, apart from a wide range of formats, features more sophisticated tools (Automatic rotate, Automatic crop, JPEG repair, Text and Image Watermarks, Red Eye Remover wizard, RGB Curves wizard, etc.) and artistic effects for more experienced users.

As for the Pro edition, it is highly efficient and meant for professionals. This edition features a scheduler, which performs oft-recurring operations on its own, thus automating monotonous work. The user can specify what actions to perform, what images to process, the date and time to start processing, etc. Isnt it a great feature for those who need to edit and convert thousands of images? This edition also supports three processing modes, and the user can choose which is more convenient for him or her: default mode, console mode or right-click processing.

As for other useful features, ReaConverter is compatible with third-party Photoshop plug-ins and effects, so that the user can significantly expand the range of available tools and actions. The detailed comparison of ReaConverter editions is available at http://www.reaconverter.com/compare.html

Most of the media is making the point of the lawsuit solely about linking. The important point in the lawsuit is whether or not deliberately linking defamatory or libelous content (i.e you know what the linked content it) is the same as spreading defamatory or libelous statements.

The lawsuit is not about links for which you are not aware of the semantic content (i.e. search results from Google).

For example, I find a web page that incorrectly paints you as a pedophile. I link to it, and other likewise defamatory content, spread my link to your associates. I have written no defamatory content myself, but ....

Ray Kurzweil Responds To PZ Myers 238

Posted by Soulskill
from the dem's-fightin'-woids dept.
On Tuesday we discussed a scathing critique of Ray Kurzweil's understanding of the brain written by PZ Myers. Reader Amara notes that Kurzweil has now responded on his blog. Quoting: "Myers, who apparently based his second-hand comments on erroneous press reports (he wasn't at my talk), [claims] that my thesis is that we will reverse-engineer the brain from the genome. This is not at all what I said in my presentation to the Singularity Summit. I explicitly said that our quest to understand the principles of operation of the brain is based on many types of studies — from detailed molecular studies of individual neurons, to scans of neural connection patterns, to studies of the function of neural clusters, and many other approaches. I did not present studying the genome as even part of the strategy for reverse-engineering the brain."

Apple Patents Remotely Disabling Jailbroken Phones 381

Posted by Soulskill
from the trying-to-put-the-break-in-jailbreak dept.
An anonymous reader writes "Apple yesterday applied for a patent to allow remotely disabling electronic devices when 'unauthorized usage' is detected. The patent application covers using the camera to take pictures of the unauthorized user and using GPS to determine location, and it involves ascertaining whether the phone has been hacked or jailbroken, using those as criteria for detecting 'suspicious behavior.' The patent would allow the carrier or any other 'authorized' party to disable or restrict the functionality of the device. Is this Apple's latest tool to thwart jailbreaking?"
