Shake it like a Poladroid picture!

Picture 2.png

You gotta try Poladroid.

TUAW was reporting about this fun new FREE program –

“Poladroid creates Polaroid-style images from your photos. The UI is a lot of fun. Drop your photos onto the Poladroid ‘camera,’ and after a few seconds, it spits out your unprocessed print. Watch it slowly ‘develop,’ or speed up the process by — you guessed it — shaking vigorously.

You can create an image at any stage in your print’s development by double-clicking and selecting ‘Take a sample.’ When your print is fully ready, a red ‘x’ appears on the bottom.

This application, while in beta, is a whole lot of fun.”

I played with it and I have to say it is a lot of fun!!!

MacMiniColo.net, an internet hosting company that has a vested interest in Apple’s Mac mini computers, has published a ‘State of the Mac mini’ report in which they claim that they have heard that a new Mac mini is on the way. Specifically, they believe (with some certainty) that it will gain the following specs:

– A new Mini DisplayPort
– Increase in max RAM to 4GB
– SATA Optical drive (instead of ATA/IDE)

MacMiniColo.net certainly has a financial interest in the continuation of the Mac mini and, as a result, may be in the position to have heard about its fate. The hosting company also dispels the notion the the Mac mini is selling poorly and believes that the mini is still a very popular model both for businesses and consumers.

I personally can’t see Apple getting rid of the Mini but hey, I liked the cube, so……
