Re: Windows 8 preview video

I bought an iPod this year (since I couldn't afford an iPad). My Palm PDA that I depended on had become outdated, but I found apps that were better than my Palm programs and would sync for backup. The Windows 8 video looks very good to me, although I'm not sure I want to swipe my big (stand-up) monitor to access programs -- the tablet form factor would work better for that. I read that Photoshop Elements went on sale at the MAC app store - have no idea how it operates, but if Adobe can figure out how to make PShop work in an app format (using a Wacom tablet attached to a Windows 8 tablet?), I'm interested in seeing it.

In my small thin iPod, I carry around my contact list, my To Do lists (shopping/chores/appt. WiTH alarms to remind me), memos, games (Angry Birds!!! and stud poker), time/weather/news-CNN and local info, a bunch of photography info apps - sunrise/sunset time, exposure guides, Nikon D90 Guide; tv guide, IMDB info on movies/tv shows/actors, all my music including favorite YouTube videos, my email/Google Calendar/Google Maps, podcasts and books, a still camera and a video camera, the Safari browser with access to the internet and more! With my less than perfect eyesight, a larger tablet would really make it easier to read the books, browse the web, and read my email, but the iPod is easier to carry around to the grocery store. It's wi-fi only, so I'm not paying for any data downloads, but also can't use all the apps everywhere. Many apps are free, some are $.99, and a few have cost a few dollars. Adobe is charging $79 for the PS Elements app, I think. I suppose CS6 or 7 will still be expensive if it comes out as an app.

CJ, one of the reasons apple has the Elements app is because Elements 8 is one of the few apps that can read the apple proprietary image format. if you manage to download your pictures from the ipad2, for example, you still have to find a program that will recognize and display them. Elements 8 does this, at least according to the apple itunes site support stuff.

Re: Windows 8 preview video

Come on, Windows 7 still a toddler, this is a clear attempt to compete with Apple innovation... It would be more honest if they make this as a Windows 7 upgrade... But what the heck, they are super rich, they can do whatever they want with all that money; who cares? IMO they should give it for free LOL...
