Mischief Is Now More Affordable

I'm speaking here of the innovative application for sketching, drawing and painting, released last month for Mac and Windows by developer 61 Solutions. Mischief seeks the holy graphical grail of "the richness of pixel-based brushes and the scalability of vectors" and to that end provides an environment in which you don't define the page size or resolution but instead just start drawing, in the knowledge that the program's promised infinite canvas will never get in your way.

Jobs the movie

I enjoyed the book Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson immensely. Steve was a crazy genious who sacrificed a lot to create perfect objects that would make the world a little better. One has to learn about his life to understand the choices and decisions he made. It's a fascinating human story. It's great to see the character of Apple's founder come to life in the movie Jobs. Watch the trailer below.

AirPort Time Capsule

The new Airport Time Capsule is one sweet piece of hardware that can replace lots of hardware and cables with one slick tall white box.

In a nutshell it is 3 things in one:

  • Superfast 1300 Mbps WiFi (802.11ac) base station
  • 2-3TB of Time Capsule backup hard disk

Panoramic backgrounds in iOS7

iOS7's is visually organazed into layers. The background moves slightly by default to give you the feeling that the icons are floating above it. But if you select any panoramic image as a background you can achieve an even more impressive effect. As you move your phone around the panorama slides behind the icons. Watch the video explaining how to switch it on.

Cosmo Wenman's Cast of Thousands

In the 19th and well into the 20th century, the museums of the world, as well as the homes of collectors, were filled with plaster. More specifically, these were plaster casts made from the bronze or marble originals of the more notable examples of Greek and Roman sculpture. Plaster, because this was an inexpensive medium for making very accurate copies. So there's a certain coherence in Cosmo Wenman's current mission, which is to use 3D printing to make these classics even more broadly available than before.
