Check out this cool music video that was directed, designed and animated by Robert Glassford and Daniel Zucco -- otherwise known collectively as Mr Kaplin. This video was an "attempt at creating a graphical representation of the mathematization of motion, showing only a small amount of the different formulas used to define the chaos within our universe." Maybe you should just watch the video...

The ZX Spectrum, an 8-bit personal home computer released in the United Kingdom in 1982 by Sinclair Research Ltd., was for many the first computer they had ever used. Endless hours of loading tapes, playing games and driving mothers crazy with high-pitched squeaks -- the place that the ZX Spectrum has in the history of personal computing and computer/video games is undeniable. If it were not for the Spectrum, the games that we've played and currently play would probably not have evolved into what they are today. Here's paying tribute to an icon - to Spectrum and Clive Sinclair!
So Adobe has officially pushed out the CS6 Master Collection and to be perfectly honest, it's a lot to take in. Way too many applications and new updates to go with each, it's easy to get overloaded. So instead of pointing to Adobe pages to see what's new, here's a handy writeup from Computer Arts talking about some of the useful features for Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, After Effects and Premiere Pro. It may not cover all apps equally and fully (granted, it was announced today and the article was released same day) but it will give you a decent idea of this new release. Oh yeah - Adobe wants to charge $50 monthly in exchange for full access to all their complete line of applications. That's that Cloud thing that's been floating around... and no $50 a month won't kill you, but neither will a 50 year mortgage. Right?
