Creative Community Bulletin 28 March 2011 Through 07 April 2011

These are the arti­cles, blogs, and resources I found inter­est­ing and wor­thy of shar­ing for 28 March 2011 through 07 April 2011:

  • Of the 1%, by the 1%, for the 1% | Society | Vanity Fair - Among our clos­est coun­ter­parts are Russia with its oli­garchs and Iran. While many of the old cen­ters of inequal­i­ty in Latin America, such as Brazil, have been striv­ing in recent years, rather suc­cess­ful­ly, to improve the plight of the poor and reduce gaps in income, America has allowed inequal­i­ty to grow.
  • The Art of Adam Betts » Adobe CS5 Icon Replacement - Icon replace­ment for Creative Suite 5 based on a mix of CS5′s prod­uct box and icon design.

    37 appli­ca­tion icons, 300 doc­u­ment icons with appli­ca­tion fold­er icons.

  • Scanning Around With Gene: When Letraset Was King | CreativePro​.com - For seri­ous graph­ic design­ers, Letraset was the Adobe of the Seventies. Here’s a look at two of the company’s cat­a­logs from 1970 and 1973.
  • Your Agency On PCs | idea­sonideas - From an aes­thet­ic stand­point, the Macs deliv­ered all we had hoped for. I can’t stress enough how nice it is to have a sin­gle cable leav­ing the back of a Mac, ver­sus the rat’s nest that accom­pa­nies our PCs. Any per­ceived effi­cien­cies turned out to be wish­ful think­ing, though. In fact, as a result of the expe­ri­ence, I’m even more con­vinced that the PC is the right choice for today’s agency.
  • DIY Cloud: Two Hard Drives That Let You Access Files Anywhere - It has long been a dream of mine to con­nect a hard dri­ve at home to the Internet. This dream, of late, has been deferred by the rise of cloud ser­vices like SugarSync and Dropbox but two hard dri­ve man­u­fac­tur­ers, Buffalo and Iomega, have come out with com­pelling devices that seem to final­ly allow home and home office users to get the ben­e­fits of cloud host­ing with the safe­ty of com­plete con­trol over your data.
  • YouTube - Will It Blend? - iPad - We’ve heard that the iPad will change your life, but will it change the way you blend?

  • Hulk smash ABC! ‘Incredible’ revival returns to TV - Live Feed - Who’s ready for anoth­er Hulk TV series?

    Marvel and ABC are devel­op­ing a TV return for com­ic icon the Incredible Hulk. CBS last pro­duced a mem­o­rable series fea­tur­ing the jade giant that ran from 1978-82 and starred Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno.

  • See the new and improved Wonder Woman cos­tume in action - It looks like NBC has ditched Wonder Woman’s heinous shiny blue pleather pants and boots. Thank good­ness. Actress Adrianne Palicki was spot­ted film­ing David E. Kelley’s new series in a slight­ly mod­i­fied Wonder Woman cos­tume. What do you think?
  • The Font Game for iPhone & iPod touch - From I Love Typography comes The Font Game, the smash hit rapid-fire typeface-identifying game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Train your eyes by iden­ti­fy­ing more than 1000 font sam­ples, and play quick­ly to secure a spot on the Hall of Fame
