In high school he was initiated to computer on an Apple II, then his parents bought him a Commodore 64, then a Mac Plus.

Adobe Goes All Marsupial
MyMac Podcast #342

On March 24, 2011, in Podcast, by The MyMac Podcast

Download & Listen to the show here, and subscribe in iTunes for free.
The Podcast urges all our listeners to please go to iTunes and make a donation to the Red Cross to help with their relief efforts.

JollyJap gives the GMen a couple of weird stories (as our unofficial Twitter Correspondent! Congrats Paul…I think) and Tom Engels from the Explorer’s Podcast has a question or two about iTunes and GarageBand problems that is certain to induce nightmares for Guy. China seems to hate juveniles, and Android beating iOS in web tests goes down in a Blaze! Old timers remember Bungie’s Myth and now it seems to be back! Lastly, Adobe makes a Flash to HTML 5 conversion tool called Wallaby (but apparently doesn’t carry around their employees in a pouch). If Flash is going to win out over Apple’s objections, why do they need it?

How My iPad Kept Me Sane

On July 1, 2010, in iPad, Opinion, by Donny Yankellow

For the past two weeks we have been living on the first floor of my house because our upper level air conditioning unit has been broken. Besides eating and hanging out here, we also have been sleeping on air mattresses. Yes, it is taking over two weeks for a repair (actually it has now become a replacement but that is a long story). We only go upstairs if we really need something and to shower or bathe our two year old.

You see, for those not on the east coast of the United States, the air conditioner decided to break during the hottest two weeks of the summer. It has reached over ninety degrees on our upper floor.

So what’s the problem been? Well, as I said we have been sleeping down here. My son goes to sleep at 8:00 so that means we are done for the night at 8:00 also. No television because the first floor is basically one big open space. My wife and I have been stuck with iPods, her laptop, or my iPad. My iMac is upstairs and it is too hot to go use it.

Thanks to the iPad I have been able to keep busy every night. I have played games, checked email, read websites, rented movies from iTunes, and just browsed the App Store. We’ve also streamed video using the AirVideo app. Without my iPad I would have been stuck to the iPod Touch, which wouldn’t be awful, but the iPad is much better.

I’ve even done some writing on the iPad in Pages. This article was written in the Pages app.

The iPad gets criticized for what it is missing. For me it was perfect.. Flash? I think I went to one site in two weeks that required Flash. No big deal.

I have to say I love my iPad and after these two weeks I am really glad I placed that pre order back in March.

Adobe Creative Suite 4 Master Collection – First Look

On December 1, 2008, in Features, by John Hamilton Farr

Adobe Creative Suite 4 Master Collection
Company: Adobe Systems, Inc.

Price: $2,499

This is a “first look” review for a general audience — design shops and creative professionals already know what they want and how to get it. You won’t see any in-depth evaluations of individual programs here (those will come later), but I will hit the high points and let you know what’s new. I’ll also discuss ordering and pricing options, tell you about special deals, and share my thoughts on how mere mortals can afford this software suite. Finally, I’ll talk about the installation and how that went. I learned a few things about the new Photoshop and Dreamweaver, too, so let’s have a look.

Reviewing the CS4 Master Collection in toto is like describing America after a single transcontinental flight, so please bear with me. To demonstrate what I mean, when I first opened the box, this is what I found (for more information on the individual apps, browse the main Adobe Products page)

Adobe and Macromedia will become one

On April 18, 2005, in Opinion, by Tim Robertson

Adobe and Macromedia will be come one

Sad news, I think, for those who like choice. Adobe Systems has agreed to purchase Macromedia for $3.4 Billion in a stock-swap deal. Long competitors, it has largely been Macromedia who has pushed Adobe to create better software over the last decade. This was one of the reasons Adobe purchased GoLive! a few years ago, to compete with Macromedia in the online publishing business.
