Adobe Creative Suite 6 – New Features

April 27, 2012 |

With Creative Suite 6 (CS6), Adobe has made a few changes to their Creative Suite editions. The CS6 suite editions have been consolidated into four editions–Adobe CS6 Design Standard, Adobe CS6 Design & Web Premium, Adobe CS6 Production Premium, and Adobe CS6 Master Collection. Here you can find out more about the Adobe Creative Suite 6 new features and the suite editions.

When Adobe CS5 came out in 2010, Web Standard was dropped, leaving only Web Premium as an option. With CS6, Web Premium got the axe and now Design Premium carries the name Design & Web Premium. Past versions of Design Premium and Web Premium shared many of the same app sets–the only distinguishing apps were InDesign for Design Premium and Flash Builder for Web Premium–so the merger does make sense in most cases. However, the dirty little secret, though, Read More

Windows 8 Developer Preview – WOW!

September 19, 2011 |

Microsoft has a new slogan to go with their upcoming operating system: “Windows reimagined.” After watching Steven Sinofsky’s keynote address at the BUILD developer conference held last week, all I can say is “WOW!”

During the address, viewers got to witness Windows 8 in action (an early developer build, anyway). If Microsoft did nothing else to improve Windows 8 and launched this developer build tomorrow, it would probably be an instant success. If you’ve ever used the Windows Phone 7, the UI will be very familiar. The live tiles are back, and better than ever. Very modern and sleek, the interface provides the user with all their important apps, photos, and more within a simple swipe or tap of the finger. Not a fan of the billboard-style flood of information? Windows 8 is fully customizable to mimic the more static Windows 7 design. Read More
