“The biggest talking point is, of course, the truly bonkers resolution. 2048 x 1536 means four times the pixels of the previous iPads and, indeed, a full million more than your average 1080p TV. On the 9.7-inch display this works out to a pixel density of 264ppi. That’s considerably lower than the 326ppi the iPhone 4S manages and, indeed, below the magic 300ppi barrier Apple had earlier specified for the “Retina” moniker. But, as you’re expected to hold the new iPad further from your face than your phone, the perceived pixel density is said to be comparable.” – engadget
- The good: The Verizon iPhone 4 offers a hot-spot feature not available on AT&T’s device. Performance was better in most regards.
- The bad: The Verizon iPhone 4 lacks world roaming and the ability to access voice and data simultaneously. The hot-spot feature didn’t work with all devices.
- The bottom line: The Verizon iPhone 4 has much in common with its AT&T counterpart, but varying features and different performance give it enough room to stand apart. It won’t vastly change your iPhone experience, but we welcome the consumer choice that it brings.

Lets me keep a log of all calls that I make, on this phone and any phone in the future.
- Google Maps / Navigation
I use this so much, before I would just print out mapquest/google maps directions and glance at them at redlights. Now I just use the car dock + navigate

After 9.5 versions of Photoshop (Windows wasn’t supported until PS 2.5) it’s easy to become jaded about Adobe’s stalwart photo editor. Fortunately, Photoshop CS5 gives us something to get worked up about all over again.
Packing more than 250 new features, Photoshop CS5 is an amazing upgrade capable of performing a wide range of tasks we’ve never seen before, while simultaneously simplifying the trademark tasks we’ve come to know and love.
Case in point: the Content Aware Fill tool, a hybrid between the Clone Stamp tool and the Patch tool, that allows users to selectively remove any part of an image and replace it with a suitable, blendable background. Using a newly developed algorithm that can stitch together multiple parts of a surrounding background image, Adobe has developed a groundbreaking tool that can make objects in an image seemingly disappear into thin air. When it works, it’s truly a sight to behold…..[read more at maximumpc.com]

RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif.—Apple Inc. Chief Executive Steve Jobs, in a broad-ranging discussion, took more potshots at Adobe Systems Inc.’s Flash software, vowed not to get into search despite Google Inc.’s move into Apple’s turf, and called Apple passing Microsoft Corp.’s stock valuation “surreal.”
Speaking at the Wall Street Journal’s All Things Digital technology conference on Tuesday, Mr. Jobs touched on issues that include suicides at Apple’s largest contractor, challenges related to AT&T Inc.’s phone network and the origins of the iPad.
The war between Apple and Adobe has been escalating over the last few months. Mr. Jobs reiterated on Tuesday that it believed an emerging technology called HTML 5 was a better alternative to Adobe’s Flash. “Sometimes you have to pick the things that look like the right horses to ride going forward,” he said, adding that consumers pay Apple to make those choices….
