The invite, shown above courtesy of Wall Street Journal , is simple and cryptic, stating simply “Wish we could say more” and displaying the date “9.9.2014”. the wearable device commonly called iWatch at the 9/9 event as well. Both devices are said to make use of several new iOS 8 features, including HomeKit, a home automation suite, and HealthKit, a series of health tracking orientated features.

Seven months since Donald Trump was inaugurated as leader of the most powerful country, we are still left wondering how it happened. A little over three weeks ago, Democrats were once again forced to witness a gut-wrenching defeat in what was called the most important special election in history in which Democrats’ Jon Ossoff lost to GOP’s Karen Handel. Two massive defeats raise questions about Democrats viability and just how long can GOP maintain their dominance. However, let’s just talk about the financial aspect of the elections. Money is a huge part of politics and democracy. After all, political candidates need to get their faces and ideas out there, and candidates with more money are thought to have more chance of winning. Three elections I’d like to highlight here might have proved otherwise. The US presidential election is arguably the richest race in the world, attracting billions of dollars in donations from corporations and average Joes.

Photoshop CS6 is arguably the best release of the image manipulation app from Adobe in a very long time.

With that in mind we’ve compiled a list of tweaks, adjustments, and tricks to speed up Photoshop. Some of these tips are gathered from a Google Docs file that was sent out on Twitter (hey follow OSXDaily there!) and we’ve added a few comments to those tricks and added some of our own performance recommendations as well. This list was aimed at Mac OS X but there’s no reason the tweaks wouldn’t benefit a Windows PC too if that’s what you’re stuck with at work. 1) Watch the Efficiency Indicator – At the bottom of any open PS window you’ll see an “Efficiency” gauge, if this falls below 100% that means you are using the scratch disk (hard drive) for memory and Photoshop will become slower. Solve this by allocating more RAM or by having less open windows. … [Read more...] about 14 Tricks & Tweaks to Speed Up Photoshop CS6 Performance
