I know many of you gave up on Myspace years ago, and simply assumed the site would die along with many other Newscorps-acquired web properties. And perhaps it was easy to think Myspace would suffer the same fate as Geocities or Friendster. However, I have to hand to the new owners: The "New Myspace" looks great. A very nice and clean, uniform design; no ability to edit EVERYTHING; and like Pandora, a great place to discover new artists. I think this may become the "Artist's substitute" to Facebook, similarly to how Vimeo is to YouTube. Take a look for yourself. Enjoy!
I felt this was a much better way to end my experiment with Android after 29 days of use. (I know this is extremely late, but Assassin's Creed 3 came out, and I had to finish it.)
For the most part, I enjoyed my time with Android. However, due to fragmentation, and the lack of urgency by HTC & AT&T to get me the latest version of Android Jelly Bean 4.1, I ended up going back to iOS. I am still uncertain why it takes so long for the OEM's / Carriers to push out the latest updates of a mobile operating system to their user base. Perhaps it's the custom front end touch interfaces like TouchWiz and Sense that cause the clog, or perhaps the carriers & the manufacturers are to blame; who the hell knows? The point is unless you have a Nexus device, you're kinda screwed if you want the latest version of Android when it first releases. Though not the only factor, this is what ultimately led me to resort back to iOS. Perhaps one day, Android, we will be together again.
After 6 long years of doing most of my computing on a Mac, I've decided to migrate back to the PC. Not because I think PC's are inherently better, but because I needed something to satisfy my newly found love for PC-Gaming, as well as give me the tools necessary to edit and polish up video. I still plan to use the iPhone and read on my iPad, but given that I work for a PC developer, I felt it was important to take the plunge head first and embrace the PC once more. The new rig runs like a champ, and completes high-level, CPU-intensive tasks in a fraction of the time that it took my old MacBook Pro. It also doesn't hurt that I am able to play Loadout at 100-FPS & Battlefield 3 at 60 FPS on high-settings. Always a plus. I still have my MacBook Air for portable computing, and I will definitely miss some key features in MacOS, however, Windows 7 Pro is a fantastic operating system that I look forward to mastering. Cheers.
A small 10x20 space, set up in about 2 hours. We still have some cleaning up to do.
