iPad getting Photoshop CC and a secret drawing app

A full version of Photoshop was announced for release on the iPad inside the year 2019. This version of the full Photoshop CC experience was "redesigned for a modern touch experience" and should give the iPad a considerable boost in legitimacy as the dominant tablet in the world - the most dominant fully-mobile tablet in the world, that is to say, as devices like the Microsoft Surface already have a full version of Photoshop because they run a full version of Windows 10. This version of Photoshop will be fully integrated with the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite of apps on Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android.

Banksy painting shredded itself after $1.4 million auction

We’ve heard about ephemeral instant messages but ephemeral works of art? Especially one that has a self-destruct button that gets triggered after the masterpiece bags over a million dollars in an auction. In what has become the talk of the town in art circles, notorious yet anonymous street artist “Banksy” decided it would send an effective message about art, or his revolutionary spirit, if one of his most iconic works was shredded right before the unsuspecting public’s eyes and right after the hammer fell on what would have been a very lucrative auction.

This Photoshop CC update is radical, and I can’t wait

Photoshop CC's most magical feature is about to get a big update. That's Content-Aware Fill, and it is easily the most important feature added to the software in the past half-decade. I use this feature constantly - especially when it comes to editing photos of gear for review. (Gotta get that dust and hair out of there before it hits the home screen.) Now it's getting much, much more versatile.

Samsung’s The Frame 2018 gets more art and smarter TV

Samsung has revealed the new version of its "digital gallery" TV, with its The Frame 2018 version boosting picture quality and customization potential.

Lady Gaga’s visual “God” made the new Aston Martin look incredible

If you're looking for a talented photographer, Lady Gaga describing them as her "God" of videos and visuals is a ringing endorsement. So, it's perhaps no surprise that when Aston Martin wanted to help the 2019 DBS Superleggera make its mark on launch day, it too turned to the infamous Nick Knight.

The Edge Desk Review

The Edge Desk Review

Over the past couple of weeks I've worked almost exclusively on The Edge Desk. This desk offers a unique way to work with a new way to sit. Instead of focusing all of my weight on my bottom and my lower back, The Edge Desk aims to spread that pressure to my legs and knees. The way I sit now is different from any position I've ever worked in before.

1994 Chevrolet Corvette ‘ULTRADYNAMIC’ painted by Felipe Pantone

This week anonymous artist Felipe Pantone revealed his latest art piece installed on and in a 1994 Chevrolet Corvette. Die-hard stock paint lovers of the Corvette were probably mortified. Digital madness inspired artwork took the vehicle to a place it'd never been before. Blocks of color, mood ring spray, and the blacks and whites of the video tapes you threw away in 2002 - they're all here.
