Acrobat's Cool Typewriter Tool

I Just came across this cool addition to Acrobat & Acrobat Pro starting with version 7.05. It allows you to easily type on any PDF as if you merely inserted the PDF into your typewriter. Now you no longer have to waste your time creating forms in PDFs if the PDF creator did not already do so. You can learn more by visiting the Adobe Blog: Acrobat for Legal Professionals

Until I post again, have fun, remember not to take life too seriously and have a great week,

MS Windows & Macs

I recently was told that Gateway Computer would not support my Pentium 4 notebook with Windows XP and Service Pack 2. It was sold with Service Pack 1. If I would have known that, I may not have bought their extended warranty. If the notebook were a Mac, Applecare would have supported any and all help upgrading the OS to the system as long as the computer could physically install the new OS.

Gateway's Policy definitely encourages me to buy an intel Mac for my next Windows notebook. Apple does not support Windows, but I'm sure Microsoft will eventually. Microsoft supports retail versions of its operating system. It refers you to your OEM supplier for OEM windows versions.

This is one of the advantages of buying Apple products. You do not get stuck with the blame game-- it's the hardware companies fault or its the software companies fault. Since Apple makes its hardware and software there can be no scapegoating.

Unfortunately, I will wait for Photoshop to be Universal Binary before I will buy an Intel Mac :(. Adobe says that will not happen until the next release of Photoshop, which is scheduled for 2007!

Until then, I'm using my Mac Tower and my PC laptop for digital imaging!
