I am officially blown away. Adobe has some pretty cool technology in the works. Take a look at this video of some “content-aware” features in the upcoming Adobe Creative Suite 4.
Arcadia, my emulator frontend that manages a wide variety of classic gaming system files, is just around the corner! I have a stable version right now, and am looking for beta testers. (Contact me if you’re interested!) Once I give Arcadia the ability to check for update to itself I’ll release it publically, but for now email me and I’ll give it to you.
If you’re curious about Windows 7 beta, downloading has resumed after Microsoft added a few more servers to handle the extreme demand. As far as I can tell downloading resumed within the last 30 minutes. I jumped on the oportunity and am downloading the 64-bit English version now. After specifying those requirements I was brought to a very brief survey page, which asked such things as my name, email address, job, and current OS. After that I was brought to the following page, which was pretty straightforward. (I blocked out the product key, duh.)
I used to use the Combined Community Codec Pack to get a support for a host of codecs on my Windows XP and Windows Vista (32-bit) machines. It seems that development of the pack has fallen behind, and I have noticed that it does not work as well in Vista x64. After some research I cam across the Vista Codec Pack, which supports just about every codec, including MOV (QuickTime). VLC is a good alternative, if you don’t mind (or prefer) a bare-bones media player, but I’m glad to have support for everything that I would want to view right in Windows Media Player.
