Animation on the iPad with iStopMotion

Animation on the iPad with iStopMotion

I remember fondly my first animation class when I was eight years old. There was the excitement of creating a story with inanimate objects and bringing them to life with a Super-8mm camera. I also remember how agonizing it was to wait for the film to be developed so I could view the fruits of my labor. If only I had an iPad and iStopMotion back...

It's finally happening! I can no longer neglect the very real need for this website to be redesigned. I have always been a big fan of very simple and clean design that puts an emphasis on the content. I still have this belief. However, I am also a big fan of beauty.

How Much Does A Website Cost?

How Much Does A Website Cost?

"So, how much does a website cost?" I get this question all the time. It's a perfectly valid question, but there are many variables which determine the answer to this seemingly simple question.

Sharing Internet Connection With An iMac

This post is really an update of a post ( Using Your Mac As A Wireless Router ) I made back in 2007. I've had many emails from folks pointing out that the screenshots are not the same on their OSX. Since OSX has changed some since 2007, I will show how to do the same thing using Lion (OSX 10.7.4). (Since many of you will probably have a wireless...

Creating iPad Screencasts

Since the release of the first iPad in April, 2010, I have been looking for a way to create screencasts on it. Screencasts can be very helpful in creating quick video tutorials.

Video Chow: A New Video Learning Series

The tagline is: "Free WordPress video tips delivered to your face." The folks at WordPress Advantage have created a new video series called Video Chow, which delivers short, rapid-fire videos on focused topics. I've always been a big fan of video tutorials.

MicroSoft Surface: Déja Vu All Over Again

MicroSoft is building their own tablet? Really? I almost don't even know where to begin here. Does anyone remember the Zune? That epic hardware fail and "Johnny come lately" approach should've been a proper lesson for the folks in Redmond. But apparently not. Balmer has been at the helm since 2000 and has learned nothing. I have to admit, I...
