Sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours by Dick Oliver and Michael Morrison

sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiWhen I first saw the title of this book, I was pretty sceptical. After all, I’ve seen numerous similarly titled books in the past, which promise to teach a complex technology in a short space of time and which generally fail to deliver. You know the ones I mean, you see them in the computer section of bookshops…each one is about one thousand pages long, packed full of dense text and entitled something like ‘Learn Oracle During Lunchtime’…or ‘Design and Build a Supercomputer in 3 and a half Minutes’. Fortunately though, unlike those others, this book actually succeeds in delivering on its promises.

Adobe Releases Photoshop CS3 Beta

This year, Christmas is coming early, courtesy of Adobe, who have decided to release a public beta version of Photoshop 3. According to the company, this is to “enable customers to more easily transition to the latest hardware platforms, particularly Apple’s new Intel-based systems.”

You can download the beta, which is available as a Universal Binary for Macs or as a Windows XP/Vista compatible version, from http://labs.adobe.com, but in order to be able to do so, you’ll need a serial number from either Adobe Photoshop CS2, Adobe Creative Suite® 2, Adobe Creative Suite Production Studio, Adobe Design Bundle, Adobe Web Bundle or Adobe Video Bundle. If you don’t have a serial, you can still download the software, but it will expire after two days. Whether or not you have a serial, you’ll need to register online with Adobe or have an existing Adobe.com membership account to access the download.

Adobe claim that Photoshop CS3 is “packed with new features,”  including a pre-release version of a major upgrade to Adobe Bridge and the brand new ‘Adobe Device Central’, which, Adobe  say, can be used to “design, preview and test compelling mobile content, created specifically for smaller screens.” 
Though Adobe say there will still be some surprises in store when the final version is released, you’ll have to wait ‘till a yet unnamed date in Spring 2007 to find out what they are.

Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium

Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium reviewed in The Technofile by MC Rebbe The Rapping RabbiOn 4th April 2005, at 12pm precisely, The Technofile delivered a world exclusive preview of Adobe’s Creative Suite 2, based upon very late official beta software. Since then the code’s gone gold master, the product’s shipped and the verdict’s in…and it’s a good one…in fact the best, because not only does CS2 deliver some excellent new functionality; thanks to Adobe’s vision of a ‘unified design environment’…which is not just a sound bite…but also a sound byte…CS2 offers far tighter integration of its constituent parts than ever before.
