Upsizing

This morning I was playing around with a few Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop files, and got another of those annoying “Your main hard disk is nearly full” messages. I’ve been getting them for a while, it’s what comes of having a 10Gb primary hard disk. I’ve been moving things to Read more…

The next generation iPod Mini

This is the latest iPod Mini, due to hit the shop floor within the next couple of months. The spec is pretty impressive too, with the 1.3i hard disk storing up to 1275 songs. Apple’s new A-Series interface makes synchronising with iTunes even faster, and with the option of Cooper Read more…

Mini takes over the world. The end.

I’ve been playing with Photoshop again. You’ll find a couple of pics on the Colchester Mini Club forum that I did today.
