My Insides Look Funny

I broke my back on Saturday. I was sledding, then I was airborne, then I was in an ambulance. It was pretty exciting.


While in the ER, I went through the normal round of Xrays and CT scans. Because I needed to go do a followup on said injury, I ended up having to pick up a copy of these Xrays and CT scans to transfer to the appointment. In a very cool twist of modern medicine, instead of picking up films I picked up a CD-R containing all my data. Being an enterprising fellow, I made a copy of said CD.

Nvidia announced stupidly huge graphics card

Nvidia has announced a 128 core graphics card aimed at high end film and video editors. This seems to lend some credence to the rumor that Apple will be announcing a “Final Cut Extreme” hardware/software solution at NAB. With retail prices ranging from $2000 to more than $3000, you can start to see how such a solution could reach five digits.

Who knows what the impact of this will be, but it’s definitely an interesting possibility to consider.

CS3 coming March 27th

Appleinsider is reporting that Adobe Creative Suite 3 will be released on the 27th of March. This is a big deal, as it will bring native Intel support to the Adobe creative apps. I’ve been running Photoshop CS3 on my MacPro since the beta was released and it’s a definite improvement.

March 27th was a day that had been supposed as a potential Leopard launch date. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple do some sort of announcement in conjunction with Adobe, but I’d guess they’re more likely to do speed-bumped MacPros and Macbook Pros to coincide with CS3. Leopard may not be as close to shipping as many had hoped.
