Now it’s almost ready for us Mac users. Terry White wants to tell you all about it [via Photoshop Insider].

Does it get any better than this?!

Axiotron has modified the MacBook and created the first Mac tablet computer–the Modbook. And you know it’s better than those others. Why? Because it’s a Mac. It was designed in California by a team of American and German engineers. It’s made of top-grade aircraft quality magnesium alloy so you know it can withstand just about anything. But that’s not all, you can ask to have yours installed with WAAS enabled GPS. They’ll be shipping soon in America and Canada so order yours from Other World Computing.

Photoshop News has issued more compatibility updates that are worth reading:

Lightroom Product Manager Tom Hogarty has announced that there be an update to Lightroom in mid-November. This will bring Lightroom to full Leopard compatibility. (Read more)

As Leopard gets out into both the developer and user communities, we’re seeing a few cautionary notes from developers regarding compatibility and performance. Recently, Apple and Adobe issued advisories regarding their respective image management and catalog applications, Aperture and Photoshop Lightroom… (Read more)

Well, Mac OS X Leopard is here, but I’m not in a hurry to convert. Terry White has a good review if you’re interested. The part that caught my attention was this:

Let’s start with the stuff that doesn’t work:

As reported earlier my Dymo Label printer and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.2 aren’t fully compatible. The printer software will not even launch because it complains that the driver isn’t there (although it is and I reinstalled it). In Lightroom 1.2 I reported that I couldn’t switch the Print module. I still can’t, although one reader did report that he was able to. He did an Erase and Install of Leopard and installed Lightroom 1.0 and upgraded it to 1.2 and he can use the Print module. However, I have not been able to replicate this success on either Intel or PowerPC Macs. Also I use PhoneValet (a Mac based voicemail system) and although they claim Leopard compatibility my PhoneValet Anywhere Clients are no longer popping up visual caller ID alerts. I reinstalld the clients and made sure the Mac OS X Firewalls are off. They are checking into it for me.

But by all means, read the full article and see for yourself. Additionally, Apple has a guided tour you can download and watch here.

You can find a review by Macworld here and the Adobe support pdf here.

Someone sent me a few funny error messages. It reminded me how much I love my new Mac

Well, here it is: My new 20″ iMac with the Sony to the right. I love it and have to admit I hardly ever use the Sony any more but it is nice to have a laptop to take on trips still. I’m learning the differences between operating systems but can’t see myself ever going back to PCs.

Lately it seems Photoshop News is offering a lot of assistance with Adobe and Windows products. There are several articles on troubleshooting when trying to use Adobe products with Windows Vista and a few on using the new Adobe CS3 product with Mac OS X and Windows XP.

Don’t you just love it when a product comes out of Beta?
