The new firmware is designed to fix an image corruption problem that apparently can occur under rare circumstances with five different models of Canon digital SLR.

Written By Anush Yegyazarian
From the July 2005 issue of PC World magazine

Ready for the era of dual-core? You now have a choice of dual-core processors; and based on PC World tests, the winner is clearly AMD’s new Athlon 64 X2, which handily outdistanced a dual-core Intel system we tested last month.

RAW File Encryption

Written By Andrew J. Roman
Foreword by Michael Reichman

By now most readers are familiar with what is currently the most important issue facing photographers this decade. That is – the closed, proprietary, and proliferating number of RAW file formats. Even more distressing is that there are now camera makers who are encrypting some of their RAW data.

Software maker looks to video, mobile

Written By John Boudreau

To Bruce Chizen, the stylishly bald chief executive of Adobe Systems, a bottle of water is more than a bottle of water. It’s Adobe water.

An action movie is more than a Hollywood hit. It’s an Adobe hit. A magazine fashion spread? An Adobe magazine layout.

Understanding ProPhoto RGB

A Preferred Working Space for Digital Photographers
Source: Luminous Landscape
Written by Michael Reichmann

Most photographers work under the assumption that Adobe RGB 98 is the most suitable working space within Photoshop. Everyone also knows that the sRGB working space is smaller, and therefore less suitable for professional and fine-art printing applications. Sure, sRGB is fine for amateurs and the web, but real men use Adobe RGB – right?

Photoshop Widows Club – The Extremist

Years ago, Thomas took a liking to hot sauce. As we all know from my previous Widows Club stories, Thomas is obsessive, to the point of being an extremist. So, I’d have to say that Thomas took an extreme liking to hot sauce. At first he would have a bottle of TABASCO® Red Pepper Sauce on the kitchen table or ask for it at a restaurant. Then he discovered TABASCO Green Pepper Sauce. It went on everything. The new flavor was great but it just did not have the zip that TABASCO Red did.

Soon the heat and tingle of the sauce just started to fade – he was up to about a half a small (2 oz.) bottle a week at this point.

Ground Rules for the Windows-Macintosh War

Source: New York Times
Written By David Pogue

Last week, I wrote about some of the changes Microsoft has in store for the next version of Windows, which is slated for the end of 2006. Interestingly, very few of you responded to that column, probably because so much may change in the next 19 months.

But a few of you fired off diatribes about how I’m either a Microsoft “shill” or an Apple “apologist” (or maybe it was the other way around). It’s not just me, either; it’s a running sardonic joke among tech columnists that you can’t even USE the word “Apple” or “Microsoft” without getting hate mail from somebody or other.
