This week is being very hectic for me with little time on the evenings when I get home since I’m working long hours, but I’ll manage to get this update to you anyway containing the news so far. Myself I’m battling a cold and trying to work full time in the camera store. It’s amazing by the way, loads of cool gear and stuff and it is really fun doing adverts for stuff and selling stuff as well! This is all why I haven’t posted a lot this week.
Change the blue dots in the Leopard dock!
So of course there are a program that can change the little blue icon in the dock that allows you to change it back to the old black triangles if you want. You can find the little program, that allows you to change them whenever you want, called Dock Delight here.
Creative Suite Tips & Tricks Podcast coming…
I had some server problems which caused this Sunday episode to be late. I will have it up tomorrow!
Tomorrow I will be posting a little larger post with some more stuff for you to read that will have some opinions on some different cameras that I’m around all day this week and some other cool stuff that I think is pretty cool Check back tomorrow for that.
That’s it for this quickie Wednesday update, have a great rest of the week! Oh and in case you were wondering about the Daily Quick-Tips, they are coming back starting on Monday!
There has been some time since the news updates hasn’t there. With a full weekend using Leopard and testing it out, my final conclusion is that at least for me, it works really well. All applications are working except the Video CS3 suite programs as well as some bugs in Lightroom, namely with the printing module which if you used any of the upgrade options to leopard (and not an erase and install) will not work. So all in all I think Leopard is great, lots of great features and I must say I am in love with Time Machine from the start. So check out the post coming later today, on a Leopard review
Check out these cool photographers!
I’m gonna start off by sending you over to this portfolio of the cool photographer Ninad Dabadghav who has a most impressive portfolio! Check it out right here and be amazed!
Next I will send you to another cool photographer, called Younes Bounhar. He’s an incredible photographer with lots and lots of talent so check him out here!
I wasn’t planning on sending you to this third photographer in the beginning, because I had originally only planned two photographer tips, but I thought why should he not be mentioned. So last but not least, go and check out my buddy, the awesome and talented landscape photographer, Jono Renton!
So I think I have mentioned this photo comic once before here, but I absolutely love it! It is called WhattheDuck and it is just hilarious! So go over to the What the Duck site and read it!

17% of the Apple iPhones are unactivated
Apple has gone out with some stats that 17% of the sold iPhones have not been activated through AT&T which means that we can pretty safely assume that they have been purchased just to be unlocked and it is now more understandable why Apple is making a big effort to shut down the unlocking of the iPhone.
