From John Nack’s “Adobe Snow Leopard FAQ

Surprised and disappointed that you haven’t tested it on CS3. It’s not exactly 5 releases previous is it?

[I found that really surprising, too, and I’ll try to get more info. I’d frankly be shocked if people at Adobe & Apple really hadn’t tested CS3 on 10.6. I *think* it’s just some corporate conservatism at work here, and Adobe doesn’t want to over-promise anything. As I say, though, I’ll try to find out more. –J.]

If only we knew for sure…I’m not ready to put down $500-600 for CS4 if CS5 is potentially out early next year.  Snow Leopard should arrive on Friday (Pre-ordered from Apple), might have a better answer by then.

AT&T Video for the iPhone 3GS

I’m sitting this year out (can’t upgrade) and waiting for the 3.0 software next week, but at least this is better than last year’s attempt at making sure people are “Ready to buy an iPhone”.

Snow Leopard hitting shelves in September for $29

leave a comment »

Considering that Microsoft now admits the purpose of Windows 7 is to improve on the Vista codebase, instead it’s Apple who gets upgrade pricing right.  If only I could pay $50 now to upgrade our 2 Macs…

I’m not a big photography fan, but this looks great.  I can’t wait for next week and hope Apple will release iPhone OS 3.0 to existing devices before new hardware comes out to avoid the problems they had during last year’s launch.

I thought this was supposed to be easy…

If Macs are generally considered to be easy to use, someone forgot to mention it to a few of the faculty members at Rider.  

Easy to Use?

I know that some professors and instructors may not be THAT familiar with Apple hardware, but reminding people where stuff like the power button and the optical drive are seems weird.  There’s only one place to insert a disc on the machine, where else would the drive go?  The reference to dual-booting is understandable, but is there any reason to have “MAC” on the sign?

Just a thought.
