Adobe Photoshop finally looks good on Retina Display

  • 2,500 the number of icons and cursors that had to be replaced in Adobe Photoshop to give the program support for high-resolution retina displays. Six months after the Retina MacBook Pros went on sale, the killer app finally has it, with Adobe launching the updates for Photoshop and Illustrator on Monday. About time. source

The decline [in repair-ability] is not due to some evil plan by manufacturers, it’s due to the public desire for better products to appear regularly. The desire to buy good, low price, and reliable products that work out of the box is the driver for seeing the lack of ‘fixability’ in the new laptop line. And it’s not a bad thing.
Inventing a problem, Michael Pusateri (via chartier)

Read the whole piece. It’s actually got some great context (two words: vacuum tubes) and serves as an effective counterpoint to this still-valid point. (I admit I considered, but passed on, getting a Retina MBP yesterday. — ed) Is upgrading your RAM about to go the way of the TV repairman? Good question.

Don’t plan on upgrading your fancy-schmancy new MacBook Pro
In case you needed a reason not to buy a next-gen MacBook Pro, here you go: Most of the parts, including the RAM, are completely un-upgradable. “As in the MacBook Air, the RAM is soldered to the logic board,” iFixit says. “Max out at 16GB now, or forever hold your peace — you can’t upgrade.” Also of note: The battery is glued on, not screwed in, making it much more likely you’ll break it if you need to replace it. Granted, most of the parts on the MacBook Air are top-of-line so it’ll be unlikely you’ll have to upgrade anytime soon, but this is still bad news. (photo via iFixit)

True story: The retina display icon/logo is a stock photo on iStock. That’s right, the biggest corporation in the world by stock market capitalization, one known for its impeccable design, ganks photos from the same spot Mashable ganks cheesy pictures for its trend stories. Steve Jobs is rolling in his brushed aluminum grave.
