Adobe CS3 Released

The long awaited Adobe CS3 has been released today. To get more information on the software, you can go here.

Apple recommends at least 3 GB RAM, 128 MB VRAM and a 2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo processor. Will it run horribly if you have a Macbook with just 64 MB VRAM and 512-2024 MB RAM? Lets hope not because I'm sure a lot of people got new intel Macs specifically to run CS3. I think we may have some disappointed customers.

Adobe CS3 Leak leaked information on pricing of Adobe CS3. If you go here you can see for yourself. Photoshop CS3 will cost 895 CAD, or the equivalent of $770 USD.

Just a little refresher, CS3 will run natively on intel proessors, so it will be much faster for those of you lucky enough to have one. Also it is said to have significantly better features and usability than the current CS2.

Mac OS X Preview Tips

New iMac in May?

Apple Insider has reported that the iMac has been redesigned and the new slimmer version will probably be released in May, along with Leopard. So is this the rumored black iMac, or an aluminum iMac that I predict?

Apple Insider also stated that Apple will drop the 17" model. This will probably lower the price of the 20" and the 24" iMac. So if you want to get an iMac, just wait a month or two.

Canon HD Camcorder / Digital Camera

This isn't really Apple related, but it would be the perfect companion for that shiny new Mac you just bought. The Canon Powershot TX1 not only can record in 720P HD, but also can take 7.1 MP photos. Other features are 10x optical zoom, face detection technology, a D!G!C processor, and ISO 80-1600 settings. And the icing on the cake is that it only costs $500!

This is a high-end digital camera that would easily cost you $300 alone and a high-end HD camcorder, which would easily cost $800 alone. Add it up, would you rather a separate camera and camcorder for $1,100, or a Canon all-in-one digital studio for less than half the price.

This camcorder will encourage other companies to lower the prices and up the quality on their camcorders, which will make non-HD camcorders obsolete due to the lack in difference of price between the two.

HD iTunes Downloads?

In the new software update of QuickTime, a new feature included is "Export to Apple TV". It gives the option of SD (Standard Definition) and HD. Since most people don't even have access to HD content (especially on their computers), some have come to the conclusion that Apple will start making HD videos available for download through iTunes. Would this hurt Sony and Toshiba with their brand spankin' new HD discs? Yes, because most people don't even have 1080P TVs. Of course this will change with time, but if Apple decides to also give the option, in the future, of downloading in 1080P, other major corporations (such as Sony and Toshiba) may be in deep shit. Think of it this way, would you rather buy a Blu-Ray player for $1,000, or buy a new loaded Mac Mini for $1000, which will do the same thing, and more.

Everything is becoming digitalized, there is no purpose anymore for physical media. The computer is becoming the entertainment hub for people. Computers will soon replace TVs' and other electronics in the home. If Apple does this, it will close the gap between TV and computer.

Now all Apple has to do is drop the Apple TV (I know it hasn't even been shipped to the general public yet), and incorporate all of its features into Macs.
