We had forgotten to post a weekly summary on Friday, April 22, 2005. We added a summary on Monday, April 25th so this week’s summary will be a bit shorter than usual (if you can call anything “usual” for a publication that is only four weeks old as of today).
The week gone by saw some useful stories, so in case you missed them, here’s a roundup:
On Monday, April 25th, 2005, Microsoft released Microsoft Windows XP-64. This story Microsoft launches 64-bit Windows from ZDNet talks about 64 bit computing.
On Monday PSN reported a story from eWeek about Forgent Sues Microsoft over JPEG Patent.
Also on Moday, CNET News covered the launch of the OpenRAW.org web site in the story Photographers ask Camera Makers to Open Up. PSN covered the launch of the new web site with a story on Saturday, April 23rd.
On Tuesday, April 25th, Jeff Schewe posted an article Camera Raw 3, Photoshop CS2 & Bridge about the new relationship between Camera Raw 3, Photoshop CS2 and the new Adobe Bridge.
Also on Tuesday was a report of an incredibly funny, uh, “screenplay” (for lack of a better description) called Raw Wars – Episode 7, Empire Resurrection by DiaAzul (AKADavid Plummer ) who posted it on the Luminous Landscape Forums. See the original thread.
PSN notes that the Imaging Revue web site has shut it’s doors.

BetaNews also reported Thursday that TigerDirect Sues Apple Over New OS but also reported that Apple Prepares for Tiger’s Public Leap. As of today, we have many reposts of people receiving their Tiger upgrade, so Apple is selling even if TigerDirect is suing.
