Adobe MAX 2014


Quick Take 01: Microsoft Surface
Adobe MAX 2014
This week was the kickoff of Adobe MAX 2014, which seems to be the most concentrated convergence of Adobe creative users from around the world. In this series of articles I'll just present some notes from the convention and my experience as an attendee, a user, a community leader, and a professional user of their software and services. In this installment, I'll give a few words about the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. I may be the wrong candidate, or the perfect candidate to write about this, because I am a Apple/Mac fan, but I'm going to write this piece, and a few to follow on the Surface Pro. Read More

Modbook: A 15.4
Way back in 2009, we had a 4 day hands on session with Modbook's (Axiotron) offering. Then, it was a 15" modbook. Granted, the Macbooks that were available then weren't nearly as powerful as the low end machines we have today. And, in 2009, the touch alternatives weren't great. Five years later, Modbook Inc. comes back with a brand new proposition: A Modbook from a Macbook Pro 2.8GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 monster with 32GB RAM and 2TB of storage. Read More
