Norma Jean - Meridional Album Artwork 2010

This CD of mine just landed September first week and I'm diggin' the new songs of Norma Jean. One thing that never stop me from getting their physical CDs is the artwork. Some says their weird because of their artwork never connects to their faith (to those who not knew--NJ is a Christian Band), but it's up to the viewer/listener. Their artwork is mind-blowing from their first album to Meridional.

Artwork is done by Jason Oda (starvingeyes.com) Check out the slide show below.

Photoshop will be the Future of Photography?

Image representing Adobe Systems as depicted i...Image via CrunchBase
I'm a fan of photography and use all resources available to shoot a nice view, a scene, people, dogs and others. I don't have a professional camera but i got a crappy phone with camera, sometimes i use Kathy's iPhone to take photos.

Now the interesting part is in this video, Sooner or later if this software will be available in the market the future of photography will be in the hands of Photoshop... and soon you don't need to have a pro cam to get a great photograph.

In the video, Adobe’s re-thinking the way we capture images and in the future we may never have to miss that perfect shot. Using an array lens, next-gen software and a very powerful computer loaded with NVIDIA GPUs, the Adobe researchers demonstrated how taking several images at once can offer a lot of flexibility. Want to choose a new focal point, slightly shift your vantage point or flip a 2D image into 3D?

In its current form, the demo requires camera lenses and software that isn’t commercially available, but it is indeed interesting to see what the future may hold.

Twitter Two-Pane - Twitter.com Hatches Today


MG Siegler (2 hours ago)-I’m here live at the event Twitter is holding at their headquarters in San Francisco to show off — well, something. A part of it is inline pictures and videos in the main Twitter stream, but it’s anyone’s guess what else they have up their sleeves. One hint may be this egg that on screen right now.

The agenda states there will be an intro by co-founder Biz Stone, an announcement by CEO Evan Williams, then a Q&A session with Williams, head of product Jason Goldman, and Kevin Cheng who is on the product team.
