Well CS3 is alive - I dont have it of course - but a look around the Adobe site shows off the appeal. The new Photoshop CS3 extended features: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/photoshopextended/features/ show that in just brand new content alone at the top end of the app Adobe has raised the bar a long way. All this in an application that has no real compeditor - impressive. Actually it is more than impressive - this app can now do magic with images extending itself into 3D and video.
The new selection tools and multi-image alignment are just beautiful: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/photoshop/features/
FlashCS3 brings some nice things, the new ActionScript3.0 looks super, with the debugger, UI tools and more. The integration capabilities and video changes make flash even more usable for anything and everything.
basically the while suite looks swish, with UI improvements all over the place and new features by the handfull.
Well Google do it again - not sure how long this service has been there - but it looks like a pretty full features stat collecting tool they have thrown out there for us.
I have just added it to this blog (short code snippet into the template) so I can see it actually do something - but the blank report I get thus far looks beautiful :-)
WoW - only got a little done - patchtime came. The daylight savings switcharound came home to punish me. Just one of the many tricks of running a 24 hour wold-centric game.
