“The last time there was this much excitement about a tablet, it had some commandments written on it.” The Wall Street Journal

Steve Jobs lead the Apple’s Special Event (yesterday) announced the iPad, designed to fill the gap between a laptop and a smartphone.

He also offered interesting perspective in the first few minutes of his presentation.

“Apple is a mobile devices company. That’s what we do … Apple is the largest mobile devices company in the world now.”

Apple’s iPad

9.7″ touch sensitive LED display. .5″ thin. 1.5 pounds.
Look at photos, read ebooks, navigate maps, watch video, play music, surf the web, use over 140,000 apps (it’s iPhone app compatible), look at photos.

It’ll be a revolution in so many ways.

I’m particularly looking forward to what it will do for electronic books. Is this the iPod for the book publishing world? It’s way beyond Kindle. The big question I want to know is will it allow split screen function to be able to run two products or kinds of media side-by-side? The context of two pages presented side-by-side is extremely powerful and one of the things I like most about the form of the book.

When did you first know you wanted to be a photographer?

A lot of times the answer goes way back and that inspiring moment follows us for a lifetime.

Here’s what Vincent Versace shared in a recent interview with Scott Wyden.

“When I knew I wanted to be a photographer, I mean new it in my core, was when I was 15 years old and out to the smoky mountains with my other uncle CJ Elfont. I shot my first “smokey water” waterfall. I watched how the world stopped for him when he shot and the look on his face after he made an exposure with his view camera. I had the “buzz” when I captured my water shot. That was when I knew.”

Ink Drips or Smears

My Fine Art Digital Printing DVD offers many simple solutions to common problems. Here’s one …


I’m getting spots or streaks of ink on my print(s).

Clean the print heads, the rollers, and the inside of the printer.

Sometimes excess ink accumulates from previous printing sessions and gets smeared on the next print. This usually only happens when previous print errors have printed off the paper causing problems for the next print, even if it’s printed correctly.
