Adobe CS5 Master Collection

Wow this Adobe CS5 Master Collection is awesome. What a fantastic integrated suite of design and development products. I installed this product last night and I am so impressed. Great work Adobe development teams. I am going to enjoy this trial phase. I will be buying the eLearning Suite 2 when it is released in June 2010


Bill-Ortiz iPhone App

It was serendipity today that while I was using my iPhone with Facebook I looked up suddenly and voila there was our friend Bill Ortiz announcing his brand new iPhone app. I am impressed by this step in Bill’s career. I downloaded the app that Todd Tate built for him right away. I love being an early adopter 🙂

I urge you to give Bill Ortiz’s free iPhone app a spin.You can learn about his current recording, From Where I Stand. You can also download his EP, Judgement Day (The Remixes) with this iPhone app for $1.99 and receive a free digital booklet.  Bill’s iPhone app promotes his Web site and MySpace pages along with his Twitter account. Smart move Bill.

I must get in touch with Todd Tate, the 5th Beatle to compare notes with him sometime about Web design and social media. I’m a big fan of both technologies.

Universal Usability – So Cool ;)

I am working on my course project paper for my Capella University graduate course, The Delivery of Distance Education. While compiling research I was referencing the Web Style Guide by Patrick J. Lynch and Sarah Horton and I discovered yet another reference gem by Sarah Horton, Access by Design. I just had to share it with you. 🙂

Record Store Day 2010

I know, I know, I have a ton of graduate school homework and I have had the week from hell and joy with income taxes, etc.

But I am heading out none the less to go join the vinyl and music junkie masses for Record Store Day 2010.

Tell you later where I went and what  I bought. Thanking my loving wife for the $25 gift certificate. You are the music of my heart Rosemary ~major kisses~

Later that day…

Ended up going to Cutler’s Record Shop in New Haven  I got this cool poster shown above. I love Cutlers Record Shop been shopping there since my New Haven university days 🙂 They have a frequent buyers card, every $20 purchase you get a stamp, after 10 stamps they will give you $20 off your next purchase of $20 or more and a new card. So today I reached that goal 😉
