Installing Moblin 2 on your MacBook Pro with VMware

I originally installed Moblin 2 a while ago and was really impressed with how lightweight it was, how quickly it installed, and how absurdly fast it would boot. Well I fielded a couple of questions since then about a bit more detail, so I decided to put this slideshow together. Hosted from my Flickr account, … Read more

Midnight Madness: Hey look, I won a Football!

The last few days have been great, crazy fun and incredibly inspiring and informing. I have seen amazing imagery, spoken with amazing photographers and gotten to sponge off of decades of experience of all the instructors in the conference. Folks like Scott Kelby, Rod Harlan, Moose Peterson, Joe McNally, and Corey Barker just to name … Read more

A full day of Photoshop: Photoshop World Day 1

I eat this stuff up, I really do. Going to conferences is always a great way to get back in touch with creativity; both technically and artistically. So far I have sat in on classes about creative composites, Illustrator Down & Dirty Tricks, Exploring 3D in Photoshop, and Exploring HDR. Good stuff, coming from a … Read more

Photoshop World: Pre-con goodness

Not really much to report other than my excitement about being in Boston, directly across from MIT, in the area of Fenway Park, and at Photoshop World for the first time. I checked in about 5, and went upstairs to the convention center and first thing I ran into a former colleague Laurie Excell from … Read more

Skittles and Agency.com uncorked the Rainbow

The interwebs is indeed all aflutter about the new Skittles website, or lack thereof. If you haven’t seen it or heard about it, go there and go there now. I’ll wait…. Good. It’s actually really freakin’ cool what Agency.com did for Mars and Skittles – albeit it’s nothing more than a stunt and doesn’t really … Read more

I came across the Application Templates supplied by Microsoft a few months ago and began … Read more

Windows virtual desktops: harder than it looks

I have been living with my virtual desktops for a little more than week or so, at least consistently, and I have found that my initial infatuation with DeskSpace was blinded by lust. After running it for around 36 hours at two locations I discovered what a freakin' unbridled RAM pig this application really is. … Read more

Zune owners wake to a bricked MP3 player

First: if you haven't turned on your Zune today… Don't! Now read on. Leap years happen only once every four years, and many Zune owners this morning I bet are wishing it was a bit more rare than that. Around zero dark hundred (midnight) today owners of the 1st Gen. 30 gb Zune started experiencing … Read more

Multi-touch display on the Silver Screen

I finally say the new Bond flick yesterday, Quantum of Solice, and it was an entertaining ride around the globe following Bond and (naturally) a couple of hotties as he saves the world. I would definitely say that you should go see it and enjoy it. From a purely geeky standpoint, one of the highlights … Read more
