And something from that “Other” company!
At Microsoft’s Build conference on Tuesday, the company showed off its radically different Windows 8 operating system.
Developed for use on tablets and touch interfaces, as well as desktop PCs, Windows 8’s user interface resembles that of the company’s smartphone platform, Windows Phone 7. The new Windows 8 will also rely more heavily on the cloud than previous versions of Windows.

You “gotta” see THE GRID

The Grid with Scott Kelby & Matt Kloskowski is a live talk-show about photography, Photoshop & other industry-related topics.
Each week features a new guest on the show like Terry White, Moose Petterson, Dave Black, Scott Bourne etc.

The discussions get rather heated and Scott doesn’t mince words in telling it like it is, and when replying to the Twitter comments that stream in during the show.
One doesn’t need to agree with everything that is said to learn a lot about Cameras (Nikon vs Canon!!), Digital darkroom Software (Lightroom vs Aperature), What is “cheating” in regards to using Photoshop for the finished photograph etc. Great Conversations!

I enjoy the show, and watch the replays when I am unable to watch it live.
