And if you're a professional photographer you need just 2 of these - CS6 and Lightroom. Who are the primary users of photoshop if not photographers?
Yeah but its the Adobe Camera Raw module that is the problem! Just about every serious photographer shoots RAW and then converts to JPG in a digital process that resembles darkroom processing steps of old typically they use lightroom or CS6 for this step. Adobe continually only release the latest versions of ACR for the latest versions of their product - and I can see that this will mean that in the future only the cloud version will be able to process files from the latest digital cameras. Meaning if you buy a new camera and you shoot RAW you have just the one choice with Adobe software and that is the cloud. On Dpreview forums photographers are really letting rip the past few days on what they think of this choice levelled to loyal customers of Adobe. This can only be good news for their competition.
From the article I think its not just a matter of playing Tetris - you need to have one eye watching the falling blocks and the other eye watching the blocks at the base of the screen - and I guess they are doing either via a headset or a split monitor display or something - not that clear from the article itself. So there is a little bit more to this than just playing tetris. I suffer from lazy eye myself and I have always been very skeptical on opticians assurances that it can only be corrected in children. Then as a child I was made to wear an eye patch for several years - and it made no difference whatsoever. It seems to me that the opticians / eye doctors were not 100% sure on the way to correct this either and that a lot of pseudoscience was being preached.
Samsung designed a replacement battery for the Galaxy S2 which basically doubled the thickness of the battery - and you get a new battery case cover with the battery. Why not sell the phone with 2 versions like this - slimline battery for those that want it - and then a chunky one for those that need/want the battery life.
I will be happy if the only software innovation from Samsung is that touchwiz stops bloody crashing all the time!
The problem with the binary pixel solution is that it requires essentially a multiple exposure - so you will not get a clean single image. You can equally just take multiple exposures and use Photomatix or similar for HDR processing for the equivalent effect.
Yeah I did this iteration in my head before downloading a single Zynga title. I'd much rather pay once and get a decent game, to hell with micropayments.
For me its all a matter of ergonomics and the individuals hand size. Sure applications developers can develop for folks with larger phones and small hands - but in general they don't give a damn. I have a Galaxy S2 - and sometimes I do find it a stretch when using the device one handed - and I have dropped the phone on more than one occasion - so I guess I don't want too much bigger than an S2 - but people with bigger hands will want bigger devices. It definitely is easier on the eyes to read from a larger screen.
I think it really depends on the capabilities of the camera you are shooting with. I only use San disk extreme or Lexar pro cards - with My Nikon D800 (36MP). You cannot afford the dropped shots - and for video a high end card is even more critical. That said though in the D800 the SD card is my backup card the other slot is for my compact flash card - which is faster (and more expensive) again due to the built in memory controller.
Can someone remind me who wrote Stuxnet? - and how is this any worse?
So Apple are gonna ban streaming music through their own phones browser - that should make them popular...
Damn I used to work about 5 minutes walk away from this in Kista - I might have to pay them a visit for a laugh.
As to who will see it, it is positioned right next to and visible from the E4 which is the main northbound road from Stockholm and its also very near to the new Kista convention center; so I guess they can wangle a few visitors every now and then in various ways. Personally I think its great to see companies doing things in non-conventional ways - and I wouldn't mind my it center being modelled around a UFO or alien spaceship - just to brighten things up a bit
I guess the servers will get some free cooling this way too - as at the moment temps are around -5 to -10 in Stockholm.
yeah - and look where the success of this humble bundle has got THQ - they filed for bankruptcy protection in late 2012. The pc games industry is anything but healthy.

yeah but you can't tax the robot workers.
