…You can be a hand bell hero?

Hand Bell Hero

The VML Agency is celebrating the holidays this year with a few rounds of Hand Bell Hero.

The game is similar to Guitar Hero, and requires you to press keyboard keys in time to the music.

There are three songs, and the controls are rather accurate, so ring in some holiday cheer, and once again become a hero.

…It’s Website Wednesday: 66 Celebrities That Blog?

Celebrity

Rather than choose one site for this week’s Website Wednesday, I’m going to give you 66 of them, and let you co the choosing.

Celebrity Cowboy Gossip Blog has put together a list of 66 Celebrities that Blog, and it’s surprising how many well known people wield a keyboard in the online world.

It is worth noting though that some of these have long since been abandoned, and “a bunch of them are disappointing” because “their sole intention is to advertise a product or show.”

However, there are some choice diamonds buried among the rough, so click around and see what you can discover, because you never know who might be blogging on the down low.

…Apple is updating?

Boom!

iMac

Today, during the Apple summer event, the Steve announced a new iMac line, featuring lots of glass and aluminum, as well as some beefed up specs.

Keyboard

Along with this new iMac line, the Steve also introducing a new, matching wireless keyboard that’s plenty slim and plenty sexy.

iLife

On the software side of things, the Steve introduced iLife ’08, with the usual slew of updates.

iPhoto gets events, giving you a new way to organize your photos.

iMovie gets added, which is supposed to do for video what iPhoto has done for photos.

iWeb gets enhanced, including Google integration (Anyone else hoping for a partnership?)

iDVD gets a nudge up, but not much.

GarageBand also gets improved, though again, nothing substantial.

To go along with the new iLife features, the Steve also introduced an update to .Mac. Now sharing photos and movies with friends and family is even easier. Plus, there’s iPhone integration with a real “Web 2.0” feel. – Yeah, the Steve actually said “Web 2.0”.

What about for the working world?

Don’t worry, the Steve has you covered as well.

iWork

iWork ’08 saw the usual bump in featuring, plus the addition of Numbers, Apple’s long awaited spreadsheet program. It’s like Excel, only Applefied.

And that’s it. No one more thing. Steve, why no iPod? Must you make us wait? All I’ve got to say is that the next iPod better launch rockets at the push of a touch screen button. That’s right, rockets.

…Keyboard shortcuts should be on your keyboard cover?

Photoshop Keyboard

Photoshop is difficult enough to learn on its own, but to try and memorize what each keyboard shortcut key is, and the process turns into a nightmare. That’s where the Photoshop Silicone Keyboard Skin from XSKN comes in. It features every keyboard shortcut silk screened right onto the surface of the keys, and is even color coded for quick reference. Thus, the cover both protects your keyboard from your greasy fingers, and gives you quick access to the keys that are supposed to make Photoshop quicker and easier to use.
