  • Aspyr ends 32-bit Mac game sales in shift to 64-bit support only

    I just took a look. Photoshop CS5.5 says it is 64 bits in the system report. I note that it "requires QuickTime", which is being pulled out of Catalina. Hopefully it is not a hard requirement.

    I wouldn't mind getting the CS6 version. If it works.

  • Apple's iOS soft keyboard target of new patent lawsuit

    My understanding of parent law is that you patent a way to do something, not the actual something itself. These folks invented a way to input domain specific data from a static keyboard. Good for them! But Apple invented an entirely different way to input domain specific data using a glass screen with literally no static switches. You can patent a process but not an idea. Of course that won't matter one bit if it goes to the corrupt Eastern district in Texas.

  • Philips' fall Hue lineup to include first-ever Smart Plug & Filament bulbs

    D'oh. I upgraded almost every bulb in my house to the filament style ones already. Just the dumb ones, but had the smart ones been available I might have done a few that way instead.
    The energy savings have been dramatic by the way. Year over year has shown an absolutely astonishing difference. I had no idea the lights were consuming so much power.
    I spent about $200 on the bulbs and have already saved more than that.

  • Citigroup bailed on Apple Card because of worries about profits

    ....As bad a rep as Goldman Sachs has, Barclay is basically a criminal enterprise. 
    On the other hand, my new Barclay-backed UBER credit card pays me 4% back on all dining and bars. This adds up quickly. Of course, for this to be profitable for me, I have to carry no balance and incur no late fees. I make sure of this by having automatic full balance payments made from my checking account, which itself has overdraft protection. You can make even the most usurious credit cards work for you, but you have to play the game better than they do.

    "Profitable"? Unless you are reselling those meals, I don't think that word means what you think it means. :)  But I get your point.
