The Misc Entry

iPod Stuffs:

New iPod mini and iPod Photo range. Checkout that battery life! Nice. I’m glad the colours in the mini are more vibrant, however … (see colour point in next paragraph).

This wallet for iPods is one of those things I would buy if it came in any decent colours, like, black, purple, turquoise/cereluan blue or rasberry red.

Misc:

Tim Burton Fonts. I think you’ll find the first font very Smashing Pumpkins-esque also.

The Matt Groening Apple Guide. I don’t know about y’all, but I love Life in Hell (the comic strip by Groening). I think it was Juice magazine in Australia that I was buying as a 14 – 17ish teen, not only to read about your rock stars, but to read the Life in Hell comic strip. Being 14 -17ish I also found it necessary to cut out and stick appropriate ones on my folder. Seeing Matt and Apple join forces certainly makes you feel fuzzy inside.

TAFE:

I’m doing a statement of attainment or something like that at TAFE in fine arts. It’s one day a week and all I do is draw. There are of course (pardon the pun) pros ‘n’ cons.

PRO: less time at work
CON: 20% less pay

PRO: I’m not doing any coding, boring client work or duking it out with bad co-workers
CON: 30% more work

PRO: I’m drawing all day
CON: I lug arround heavy shit to the top of un-airconditioned rooms

PRO: I’m eligible for student discounts on yoga classes
CON: I’m not eligible for student discounts on travel

    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.
