iSight

By now it’s all over the blogosphere that Apple took the iSight off from their online store. I kindda noticed this last Saturday when I searched around for one on Amazon.

CS3 vs CS2 speed

CS3 is quite a bit faster on Intel Macs if you have huge files, like if you have a D2x or a 1DsM2, or if you open up your 350D/400D/20D/30D/D40/D50/D80 pics in “larger size” settings in Camera Raw, and if you use complicated filters on the entire image… Rob Galbraith DPI: The Photoshop CS3 beta [...]

SkypeOut calls within US and Canada no longer free starting 2007

Flickr: now unlimited upload for pros and 100MB for free members!
