Adobe Ideas is an incredibly fun digital art app. While it’s certainly not a professional level digital art tool, it makes it easy to download and instantly begin creating cool art. It’s a very intuitive program with a pretty impressive toolkit, but it would definitely benefit from a few simple tweaks.
Lets take a look at the good, the bad, and my deeply insightful suggestions to improve the program.
There is a lot to like here. First of all, it’s easy to dive right in and start drawing. Adobe Ideas is a great app for anybody looking for a cost-free introduction to digital drawing and painting. As soon as you download it, you can start creating, no matter what your skill level is.
The color palate is very impressive, offering a complete rainbow of RGB and HSB colors. There is also a convenient eyedropper tool so you don’t have to worry about picking the exact same color you used previously if you need it again. Just point the eyedropper at the desired color, click and you will have the color you need to get the job done.
While the new iPad models won’t ship until November, you won’t have to wait a second to cover them with the best protection available. The NewerTech NuGuard KX for the iPad Air and for the iPad mini with Retina Display are ready to ship today, and will keep your beautiful devices safe with the KX’s unique kinetic energy X-Orbing protective gel!
The popular NuGuard KX line has already proven that it can withstand the toughest of drops without adding bulk or sacrificing style. With its state-of-the-art Mil-Spec-certified materials, the NuGuard KX is designed to absorb and evenly distribute kinetic energy, so you can rest easy when using your device.
This patent-pending lightweight, thin design allows for protection against accidental drops, impacts and scratches without adding bulk typically associated with other, more expensive cases that attempt to provide this level of protection.
Well, here’s a new one. I haven’t done a murder mystery game, probably because this is the only good one I’ve ever found. (Not that I don’t review bad games, but if it’s so bad I tear up after making fun of it… I tend to not publish those). Professor Layton is a new entry to the iOS market after jumping over from the Nintendo DS, to an even smaller handheld device, your iPod/ iPhone. So let’s put on our detective caps, grab our deductive reasoning shoes and delve into the depths of Layton Brothers: Mystery Room!
I’m not going to spoil much on this one, because it’s actually a really sweet game, so all of this review will be based on the first level. I apologize ahead of time that this will not be as much of an in-depth look. But it’s in the name of preventing spoilers. So the game starts out, and you are a brand new detective, and you’ve been assigned to the back, back room of the police station, where all the cases that can’t be solved go. Being the ever-optimist, your character (Lucy Baker), makes the best of it. Article Continues…
Other World Computing is celebrating an important milestone. 25 years ago, OWC Founder, Larry O’Connor, pivoted his first business venture of re-inking printer ribbons to a new business trajectory that focused on “Making Each Mac a Better, Faster Mac.” OWC’s first Macintosh upgrade product, beyond hard drives and memory, was a processor clock upgrade, the OWC Rocket, that cost less than $50. Today, the OWC product catalog includes several thousand upgrade and enhancement products, the majority geared toward helping people get more performance and longevity from their Macs.
Since its inception, four years after the launch of the original Macintosh 128K, OWC has grown from the classic garage business to an operation that occupies more than 50,000 square feet of office and manufacturing space across five locations in Illinois, Nevada and Texas. Today, OWC employs more than 160 team members and continues to build its reputation as a developer and manufacturer of high-performance hardware that complements the high standards of fit and finish that characterize Apple products.
We’ve all been there. One second, you and your iPhone are blissfully skipping through a field of flowers—you’re texting, watching YouTube videos, updating your status to “feeling exhausted” on Facebook for the third day in a row—and just like that, your moment comes to a screeching halt.
You feel your perfect, beloved iPhone slip from your fingers and barrel in slow motion toward the ground. You fumble, karate chop, try anything to save your phone—but too often, it’s too late. Article Continues…
