Wacom Love

I LLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my new graphics tablet, a 9×12″ intuos 2 in deep purple (it even comes in purple!). I’ve been using it for about a week now and don’t know how I’ve handled drawing with a mouse for so long. I’ve even been coming into work earlier, (this is in part due to me needing more time to redesign and code my website which I now don’t like too much), but also to work on some drawngs for a flash quiz.

It’s captured a bit of attention at work due in part to it’s size. “OOOOO!!! Did work pay for that?” They ask in awe and sly curiosity. “No”, I flatly reply, “They didn’t”, even though I will be primarily be using it for work. Company’s insurance will cover it incase something happens to it while it’s at work, all though they weren’t sure if that was possible for a couple of days because it’s not work’s property, i’t MINE! When I go, so does the tablet.

Our operations department did try to get the company to buy said tablet for me, but company said “Na!”, so I thought, “Fuck you! I’ve been creating vector illustrations for our new website, icons for other clients and am currently working on a flash quiz, I need something to help me get this work done faster and easier. I want one for myself at home any way, so fuck it, I’m buying one!”.

Worth every penny, and the bungled address saga which made the delivery of tablet far more annoying and lengthy on my end.

    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.
