Using iPad as professional

I'm using my iPad all the time, from hobby stuff like reading books, flipping Flipboard, browsing tumblr, reading news etc..

and I also use it as a professional as well. I use it for presentations, sketching, note taking and few weeks back I bought external midi controller to make some music with garage band.

The idea for this post came from seeing those Apple "What will your verse be?" series of ads. Also our of curiosity I've watched some of the old Newton ads, kinda funny but they show people using this Newton to help them with their business stuff.

What are some of your uses for iPad?
Which apps do you use and how?

So I just heard on the radio that the world will end in a month. Then I remembered all the fuss about the 2012 mayan calendar. I think it's all a load of bollocks but ... let's discuss... again.

The Hunger Games

http://www.inquisitr.com/wp-content/2012/02/the-hunger-games.jpg

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1392…

I didn't know a lot of about the storyline of the saga and normally did not expected much from the movie as well. But I was very surprised that actually the idea is very relevant with the contemporary problems and the global politic streams. We all see what happens with ACTA, MACTa and another shits and if you actually understand the main idea of the movie and taste the sustainable environment definitely you'll be a disgust from the situations around you and the globalization of the sustainable internet society.

I think camera movement in some of the action scenes were a bit too shaky - it did good to reflect the "realism" of those moments but still, it's a movie, not a real life experience of a fight.

What did you think?

Hollow Earth theory

The Hollow Earth Theory has been around for a long time. While the first concepts were crude, this 'crazy' idea has slowly developed into a viable alternative to the solid Earth model. In light from today's technology, many of our findings point towards a hollow structure as the only method to explain many of today's scientific findings.

http://www.we-make-money-not-art.com/wow/0holeinthearthk.jpg

If indeed entities exist beneath the surface of the planet, they would not live in molten rock but in space ships. And as the tectonic plates are breaking - it is either by their doing, a knowing that the consciousness hologram that creates this reality, is ending so they no longer have to monitor from below, or they emerge as the plates naturally break apart.

http://www.hollowearththeory.com/_images/articles/hollow_earth_complete_shell_model.gif

According to the Hollow Earth Hypothesis, planet Earth is either wholly hollow or otherwise contains a substantial interior space. The hypothesis has long been contradicted by overwhelming observational evidence, as well as by the modern understanding of planet formation; the scientific community has dismissed the notion since at least the late 18th century.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wiki…

There exists two openings at the North and South Pole, each hole having a circumference of 1400 miles wide. At the center of the earth is not a molten core but an inner sun which is six hundred miles wide and is 2900 miles from the Inner Surfaces. The diameter of the lip at the opening at the poles is 1200 miles long, thus a person can not see the other side of the opening.

http://www.crystalinks.com/agarthamap.jpg

Therefore, there exists three worlds on our planet, the outer surface, where we live, the middle earth which purportedly is lined with many caverns, tunnels (made by someone), Inner Cities and people who live there and lastly the Inner Surface. How Gravity works then is the following. For the people who live on the outer surface, Gravity holds them down. For the people that live in the middle earth, the closer they get to the center of the crust (i.e. - 400 miles down), the less effect gravity will have upon them.

Opinions?

The near future of art

So what is the next BIG thing in art? I mean, Banksy is sort of getting boring already, the street art is nothing new.. I have a feeling like i've seen it all before. This sort of art had been plagiarised and done in all forms way too much times over and over again.

Referencing politics, war, poverty... All seen before.

In art terms, what do you think are the latest trends? Or.. will be trends in near future.. in 2011.

Photoshop on mac, looking like win version?

Simple questions, would be happy to get some answers.

Can I make Photoshop on my Mac look like the windows version?
I mean, I don't like the transparent application thing, drives me insane because I can't focus on my current work.

also.. is there a way to lock the window so that when I change the zoom, the size of the window doesn't constantly change.

also.. is there any way to disable the tab thing in photoshop, it's in most cases useless and confusing.

I have been working with these issues in Photoshop for over a year now and I'm still frustrated by them. Would like a change.

Halloween movies

It’s late October, it's Halloween, and that means scary movies! I love horror flicks, have been in love with them all my life, but there is something with Halloween that amplifies my feeling to the extreme because this one night seems particularly scary already.

Thanks is why, like many others.. I love to make a movie play list to watch in and around Halloween time. Now I'm not talking about pure horror flickr, I'm talking about the movies that have Halloween spirit or are somewhat involved with that holiday.

What is your Halloween movie list?

My last year movie play list:
- Sleepy Hollow (1999)
- Halloween (1978)
- Evil Dead II (1987)
- Dawn of the Dead (1978)
- The Thing (1982)
- The Exorcist (1973)

..and also, I watch every single one The Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror episode.

Desperate Sony - New PSP Ads

Marcus Rivers? Step your game up?

Ok, for those of you who don't know, these are the new PSP ads. Sony seems desperate by making these ads that literally bash iPhone as a gaming platform.

What they don't mention is that iPhone games are getting better by the month, are way cheaper, always with you and what not.

Your opinions?

Level of quality in work

I'm sure you have seen this number of times, someone got a new camera (let's say Canon 5D Mark II) and thinks he can do best ever music videos and short films. Sadly, you see his work and you know that it's shit. But others that have no clue of what the quality level is, will say it's brilliant just because it's filmed with that sort of camera, giving the whole video "film look". But in reality, it's shit, no composition, framing all wrong and so on. I don't have any particular examples here but as I said.. I'm sure you have seen this already.

The same thing goes for the blooming photography "business", everyone seems to be a great photographer now days, or at least, they think they are great photographers. When you look at their work, you just see that it's not good but others that have no clue, once again.. praise the work as being the most brilliant ever. I was recently in a company of few individuals which are all amateur photographers going to the same course (lectures about taking photographs).. and this one guy made some photos for some singer and was showing them to us on his iPhone. I didn't like them and I have even explained why.. because it was shot to look very professionally and on a high budget, it lacked lighting and overall, it lacked some story behind it. I have explained these certain details just to make him understand why it's mediocre and how he can improve the further work but instead.. they all said I was right but that it doesn't matter, it's good as it is. But it's not!

Is the quality of work being downgraded with this new technology and instant photographers? I remember I used to take photos with my ancient Nikon FM2, fighting against weather and lighting all the time but it was worth it because I made some nice photos which I haven't seen for days until they god developed. Some times I used to close myself in the dark room to develop B/W photos, that was also struggle because it's not that easy to make a good, quality photograph.

.. now, all of a sudden everyone can make photographs, think they are great .. but to anyone who ever had a chance to read anything about photography those pictures look just mediocre.

So without any frustration, my question is this, is the quality of such work being degraded with these instant photographers?
