Download or update from within the program.
Adobe Photoshop Elements & Premiere Elements 14
Adobe has updated the consumer version of Photoshop. While it is the best photo editing software I’m not sure it is worth the $150 asking price.

About The GWX Auto Downloads
I’m not sure why all the fuss this week. We Geeks have warned you about this from the inception. Forum members at places like MDL have been shouting about this daily for many months. I first warned about GWX in April. I have a post on blocking this 3 weeks ago. Yes, this is a massively shitty thing for Microsoft to do, yes I think someone should be fired over this, yes I think it calls for lawsuites, but like I said, we Geeks warned you. This isn’t new news and you should be careful about trusting sites/people that act like it is.
The results of the “What Windows OS is your main OS?” poll kinda shocked me. I didn’t think so many of you would jump to Win10 so fast. I’m also a bit disheartened that so many people are still using XP.
I put a new poll up. Let me know what you think of Win10 —>>>

Today Apple announced the Apple Pencil accessory for the iPad.
It’s a holiday weekend here in U.S. Not much going on in the tech world.
I tried social media. There are a number of reasons why I left it but it’s kinda hard to explain well.
Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson was interviewed and gave what IMHO are the perfect answers (about 2/3 of the way down).

“Microsoft has partnered with Laplink to provide you with data transfer tools that transfer selected files, folders, and more from an old Windows PC to a new Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 PC.

Never used it. Maybe You or someone you know would find it useful.
Comments are back. I’m using the default comment system for now (with a couple of anti-spam plugins).
