Simplified Google results UI

Looks like Google are trying another UI iteration at the moment. While lazily searching for dribble rather than putting the full domain into the address bar I was sent to the page shown above. It looks to have a much cleaner monotone set of icons and a nicer treatment of the search results typographically.

The perfect web dev tool?

For the last year or more my web development work flow has gone like this:

Photoshop CS3

I thought you'd all like to know that Adobe just released a beta version of Photoshop CS3 for general download. The installer is unlimited as long as you have a valid PS CS2 or Creative Suite 2 serial number else it's a 30 day trial.

From my initial exploration there doesn't seem to be a lot of new stuff in this version, apart from a nice new interface and a new variables framework which I have no idea how to use yet.

Software convergence

Random graphic

I was interested by a question in the forums about the difference between PhotoShop, Illustrator and InDesign. I have been thinking about this too more recently, especially Illustrator and PhotoShop. Adobe is pushing people more and more into buying the full Creative Suite and it is a much smarter way to work now that these products are so integrated.

Google Mars

Elevation of the surface of mars from Google Mars website

Spend hours forming the latest conspiracy theories on the crazy formations on the surface of Mars thanks to Google's new Google Mars website.

I only wonder how long it will be before you are able to search for McDonalds or your local Ford Space Car dealership ;)

Any way check it out at Google Mars wesite

CreativeBits on Frappr

I thought it would be pretty cool if everyone on Creative Bits put themselves down on this Frappr group I just set up. Then we can get a visual representation of where everyone is.

Frappr uses google maps to create groups with a visual display of where everyone is on a global (or local) scale.

The more people that do it the more interesting it will be :)

Aperture

Well Apple have released their ‘PhotoShop beater’ and it looks like it’s going to do the same to the Photographers market as FinalCut did to the editing industry.

Apple announcements round 2

New iPod and iMac

Well here it is, finally the iPod with video!

No feature films yet but there are Music videos and TV shows available in the iTMS but I am guessing that as the format is just MPEG-4 that it will play anything that is ripped to that format.
