iPhoto ‘09

64C86C2F-1E71-4923-8DC6-458FA40A0A4C.jpg

I just got iLife 09 yesterday and love it so far, iPhoto faces and places really rocks. For more info on it, check out this article from – TheAppleBlog:

“I’ve spent several hours tinkering with Apple’s new iPhoto ‘09 — part of the newly updated iLife ‘09 suite of media applications — and I like what I’ve seen so far. The entire application is a strong step forward, and the exciting new features (facial recognition and geotagging) don’t disappoint. The following is a focused walkthrough of iPhoto ‘09 and the interesting new features it boasts.”

Kindle Dos?

9D8C61B5-0352-49AB-B2A5-5EA38342526F.jpg

Electronista is Reporting that Amazon might be ready to announce the next version of the Kindle. I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the Kindle but also know there were improvements to be made!
We will wait and see on 2.9.09!

“Amazon today said it would hold a press event on February 9th at the Morgan Library & Museum in New York City. The online retailer doesn’t provide details as to what will appear at the event but is widely expected to be launching the second generation Kindle at the gathering given the location and timing; the original sold out in late 2008 and isn’t set to come back on sale until the early part of 2009.”

Documentary about Apple’s Ive

6AA20411-E48A-40C9-8D39-B1CBAFB0C1D6.jpg

I’ve always been fascinated by the amazing designs that come out of Apple, where here is a documentary about the man behind some of the most creative designs, Jonathan Ive.

“Apple’s design facilities are one of those rareified places that the average person has little hope of ever seeing—kind of like Area 51, former Vice President Cheney’s famous ‘undisclosed location,’ or the rolling ice planes of Jupiter’s moon Europa. All rolled into one. 

But a new documentary about industrial design, Objectified, gets a peek into the heart of Apple’s success and an interview with the main man himself, Apple SVP for industrial design and pin-up Jonathan Ive. Director Gary Hustwit (who previously made the much touted fontumentary Helvetica) wrote on the film’s blog:

I felt like Charlie in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, except everything was made of shiny aluminum instead of candy. And there were no oompa loompas.”

You can see the trailer HERE
