Facebook launched more than a new iPhone app this evening - they also have a new home page (the page you see when you aren’t logged in) and a new tagline. Gone is all the descriptive language suggesting you sign up to “Keep up with friends and family,” “Share photos and videos,” “Control privacy online,” and “Reconnect with old classmates.” Now Facebook has a simple message to entice you to sign up: “Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life.”

“Windows - the OS that was last to the 64-bit party - will get 64-bit Photoshop FIRST? They screwed up my selections in CS3, changing the behavior Photoshop has had since version 1. And they put out a “revenue excuse” version every 18 months with no features 95% of people will use. Now they’re telling the largest 64-bit audience out there (that would be G5 and higher Mac users) that since Adobe prefers to use their in-house craptastic development environment (rather than use Cocoa, as Apple has been advising for FIVE g-damned years) that _we’ll_ have to suffer for having an OS that is and was 64-bit ready? C’mon - I’ve had 16GB of RAM in my Mac Pro for a year. I had 8GB in my G5. Photoshop has never been able to use more than bout 3.8GB of that RAM. …. This is a travesty. Adobe should get a clue - they were built on the backs of Mac users and our continuous upgrades. Screw them. Screw them period.”—Next Photoshop will get 64-bit boost—on Windows only | Underexposed - CNET News
