  1. Blog Back in Business

    It's been quite a long time since I posted anything in the blog. I won't bore you with excuses, I just want to let our subscribers know that I'm back and looking forward to posting again.

  2. Youtube Goes Widescreen

    At last! I logged in today to see the long-awaited change. 16x9 videos can now be seen as they were meant to. Older videos appear to either keep the 4x3 player or get pillared inside a 16x9 player. All good.

  4. Adobe Customer Support

    Over the last few weeks I've had my first real experience with Adobe Customer Care/Support. Before I get to the rant I'll say that the person who dealt with my case tried her best to help me and ultimately she did - the issue is now resolved. However the experience was less than impressive and left me wondering "How could such a clever company have such an impotent customer support system?"

    Here's the story...

  5. More holograms

    Back in September I blogged about a live hologram being broadcast from Australia to New Zealand. This week CNN introduced their own version which also looked very impressive. Check out the story here, which includes a link to a behind-the-scenes video.

    I think the CNN team might be a little carried away with their own success in using phrases like "never-before-seen image" and "you've never seen anything like this on television". Technically they may be right - I'd only previously ...
