Although I don’t really have a need for the new “Dock Adapter for iPod shuffle“, I still think it’s a cool product. This little adapter goes into a standard Apple iPod dock, say the one on top of the iPod Hi-Fi and let’s your 2nd Generation iPod shuffle be a full fledged citizen on your iPod speaker system. It not only allows you to enjoy your music, but it also allows the shuffle to be charged as well.
It’s $19.99 and is available online or at your local Apple store.
Adobe is really getting into this whole Public Beta thing. Now you can download the NEW After Effects CS3 and Premiere Pro CS3 as a public beta. This is great especially for intel Mac users who want to check out the apps before they buy (the Windows version is there too). Also you can give your feedback to help make the app better. These apps are due to ship next quarter, but you donâ€™t have to wait to start playing.
Just head over to labs.adobe.com and download them.
Also note that the Creative Suite Design and Web Suites are now shipping!
My buddy Scott Kelby has just released his New â€œThe Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers.â€ This new title is 394 pages and covers Lightroom from A-Z. Iâ€™m a big Lightroom fan and while I know the program quite well, I can always learn something new. The way Scott walks you through Lightroom is by doing it the context of a photo shoot. He shows you everything from bring the shots in, adjusting them, adding metadata and output to print, web and slideshows. Scott teaches you Lightroom in a fun way as he does with most of his classes, books and videos. If you use Lightroom, youâ€™ll want this book!
Well worth the cost of admission! $26.39 ($39.99 list) at Amazon.com.
