New GarageBand Update for iPad Out – Finally!!!
This has to be one of the coolest apps out on the iPad, and it even works reasonably well on an iPad 1. I love the guitar, the keyboards and drums are great too, and I have had countless hours of fun just noodling around with it as my brain turns to less…. strenuous things at night while I am chilling on the couch with my wife. So what’s new? I will pause for a moment as the upgrade is almost done downloading and I will let you know….
Flash Player for Mac updated to 10.3- Adds Features, PrefPane
Considering over half of Adobe’s pro graphics sales are Mac customers, and in past years was even higher, it’s about time that Adobe stop treating Apple like the redheaded stepchild it probably hoped it would become during all the Flash controversy a couple years back. Now that Adobe has embraced the iPad and tools that actually bypass Flash content creation for those who are so inclined, the new Flash 10.3 is actually pretty nice, and includes an auto-updater and a Preference Pane as well.

Final Cut Pro Talk – PreNAB Editors’ Lounge 2011 Pt.1
Us pro video guys (and gals) really need some love to be shown us from The Mothership in Cupertino. Premiere CS5 has been kicking all sorts of Final Cut touche since its’ realease almost a year ago, and the whole Final Cut Studio line is in need of some serious updating. Apple has been (rightfully so) paying more attention to its’ consumer cash cows, the iPad and the iPhone recently. Forgetting the cretors, the core of which still makes Apple Apple, would, in my opinion, be a serious mistake with long term effects. While Apple dropped the Computer part of its’ name and has becomes a devices company, I see OS X Lion with built in server, and the pro creative apps being an critically important aspect of what makes Apple able to bring devices like the iPad and iPhone to market and achieve such rapid, and rabid adoption.
LightWave 10 Ships! Long History, Bright Future?
It’s been a very long time coming, and for those with some insight into the history of the venerable 3D application, it might not have happened at all. I for one can say without reservtion I am very glad it did. LightWave 3D has, for many years, been the “go to” software for artists and studios large and small, and often is the secret weapom behind the scenes of many major productions that simply must crank out quality work on time, on budget, and without an army of people in order to do so. We want to congratulate our longtime friends at Newtek for shipping LightWave 10, and we look forward to diggin in it with it in the coming months for lots of in-depth coverage and tutorials, reviews and more. Read on for more on this long awaited update to one of the oldest 3D programs in CG history.
