The Adobe Florist

Adobe’s CS range means new software, new packaging, new name and of course new icons. Checkout the icon for Illustrator CS posted on What Do I Know.
Hmmm… pink flower = a vector illustration program. Adobe what the hell are you thinking? Okay, so it goes with new packaging, but it says nothing about what the application does. If they wanted to keep flower graphics from the packaging, then surely they could’ve done something to it to show hey, it’s a vector illustration program. Even if the flower was drawn in Illustrator, (maybe it was?), or showed node points or a pen tool, or even use the same masking technique from the packaging.
Guess I’ll have to download the tryouts just to see the rest of the bouquet. They should at least have a purple one.

    Adobe Not Releasing Universal Binaries Of Current Software

    Adobe have posted this question and answer PDF regarding Adobe products running on the new Intel-Based Macs. Looks like the Photoshop TV guys were right, a Universal Binary will not be available for CS2, Adobe will instead focus on making CS3 compatible with both Intel-Based Macs and the current Macs. CS3 could be available in the next 18 - 24 months if you look at Adobe's rack record for major releases.

    The Dreadful Embarrassment, Now In Purple!

    Like most creatives who prefer working on Apples, I've been hanging out for some sort of concrete evidnece that the Adobe CS2 suite will run well/much better on the new Intel-based Macs under the Rosetta emulator, or that Adobe will release a Universal Binary update. Well I need a new mac within the next week, and decided to just go ahead and place an order for a 17-inch PowerBook any ways. I've also managed to find a two-tone purple laptop bag over at the Crumpler site named, The Dreadful Embarrassment.

    Hideous. It’s ugly and pointless and pink, perfect for Barbie’s First Drawing program, but not for what is supposed to be professional software.
    As soon as they start whacking letters after the product title, you know they’ve lost the plot. Who are they trying to imitate? Macromedia? Microsoft?
