…Photoshop is as real as it gets?

As Real As It Gets

In case you missed it, this ad for Photoshop, called “As Real As It Gets”, is a fantastically creative interpretation of what the program would look like if it existed in real life.

Also, be sure to check out the Flickr set for some behind the scenes shots, because the size of this ad is almost unbelievable!

…It’s Things Thursday: Lakai Recycled Program?

Lakai Recycled Program

If you’d like to go green in style, then check out the Lakai Recycled Program.

By “applying excess shoe materials that would otherwise be thrown away to selected styles each season”, Lakai is turning trash into unique pairs of kicks that are good looking and good for the environment.

In addition to the recycled materials (leather, suede, mesh) the Recycled Program shoes will also feature soles comprised of new gum rubber mixed with regrind rubber waste, reducing new material by up to 50%.

Another benefit of the program is that each shoe will have a unique look that is the result of whatever materials they happened to have around that day, so no two pairs will share the same material and/or color combinations.

Are you ready to go green?

…You can go back to your Mac for free?

Back To My Mac

Leopard’s Back to My Mac tool is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to access their Mac from anywhere around the world without bringing it with them.

The program is designed to let you “Access and control your Mac running Mac OS X Leopard from any other Leopard-based Mac over the Internet — right in the new Finder”.

It’s a great program, but unfortunately, it requires a .Mac account if you want to use it.

However, if getting back to your Mac sounds like something that you’d like to do, but a .Mac account doesn’t sound like something you need, then check out Lifehacker’s guide to Get Back to Your Mac Without Paying for It, as it will guide you through the process of setting up Back to My Mac on your Leopard computer with tools that are available for free, right out of the box.

…The iBand is near?


Soon, the iPhone’s multi-touch interface will let you and your buddies form your very own traveling iBand.

Currently, PocketGuitar lets you fret away on the six string, and the iAno adds some ivories to the mix, which means you’re one drum solo away from a tour date.

What’s interesting is that unlike the Vans Fracture concept, these programs are ready to run and can be used on any (jailbroken) iPhone or iPod Touch.

Rock on!

…SuperDuper makes backups bulletproof?

Bulletproof Backups

With any computer, backups are a must, but for most, it’s a ‘one day’ sort of thing.

Thankfully, with the release of Leopard and the introduction/inclusion of Time Machine, Apple has made it easy to keep a backup of your files in case the inevitable happens.

However, Time Machine is not the end all program for backing up your computer, and Shawn Blanc has written an excellent post about why you may want to use SuperDuper in conjunction with Time Machine for bulletproof backups.
