The annual NAB show kicks off this weekend, and Adobe is using the opportunity to offer pro video users a peek behind the curtain into development of the next version of Premiere Pro, After Effects and other tools.
So the reviews have started coming in for jOBs, Apple TV got an update and so did your other iOS devices, Vine got launched, got pulled, got tweaked, got 25% less sexy, and a whole bunch of other stuff, so let's see what's cooking in the hot pot of news this week.
We're just a little over a week away from the 2013 edition of the Macworld/iWorld show in San Francisco, and the expo is locking up the high-profile guests who will appear. That includes the two stars of the upcoming independent Steve Jobs biopic -- one of whom is the artist formerly known as Mr. Demi Moore. Find out when it all goes down in our weekend recap...
Now that the booths have been broken down, the awards have been handed out and the last bit of per diem has been fed into a slot machine at McCarran International Airport, there's a general sense that something was missing from CES. Somehow, among the thousands of exhibitors, products and prototypes, the biggest splash was a television that few consumers could afford and a keynote presentation that the greatest minds in tech journalism are still trying to figure out.
The tenth annual D: All Things Digital conference kicked off in California on Tuesday night with a rousing Tim Cook interview. While the Apple CEO didn’t divulge any corporate secrets on the company’s HDTV plans, there was plenty of discussion about the future.
As widely reported this week, That ‘70s Show doofus Kelso (better known as Ashton Kutcher) has been cast in a new indie feature based on the life of Steve Jobs. Okay, so looking at some pictures side by side, the guy does resemble Jobs -- especially in his younger days. But that got us thinking: Are there better actors who could play Steve Jobs?
As with every other Apple release held on a Friday, the new iPad reviews started pouring in on Wednesday night. So were the pros wowed by the Retina Display and the 4G LTE wireless? You betcha, and the battery life also takes quite a bow this time around as well.
As we've been walking the halls of the Macworld/iWorld Expo in San Francisco the past couple days, we've tried to give you a look into the annual event -- but we've also been checking out some of the myriad apps being shown this year. While some of these have been available for a while, they caught our eye for one reason or another.
I took a leisurely stroll through the show floor yesterday afternoon. Fueled only be half a veggie burger and two 16oz glasses of Sprite, I saw some things that I will never forget. And here they are, documented in this video to show you, fair Mac|Life reader. Enjoy.
PS) For the record, those Western Digital hard drives were not running hot. I was trying to make a bad pun, but it didn't work out. And as you may know, I am often spouting bad puns.
Our videographer (see also: visonary) Michael DeLano took a GoPro through the convention halls and shortened it down to two minutes to give you a fully immersive walkthrough of the Macworld/iWorld show floor. Check out and be sure to pay attention to the slow downs--you might see some people you know.
