Installing Photoshop CS6 inside Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

For years it has been very difficult to install Photoshop inside Linux without the use of a full-fledged virtual machine installation of windows. FINALLY there is a solution so now we can all finally ditch windows, for good. [… and there was much rejoicing]
Windows has its place for enterprise support, document creation, gaming and basic tasks, but for a software or web developers environment Linux can have many advantages.
Thanks to Ben D’Angelo‘s Tutorial and the PlayOnLinux software I’ve managed to install the full version of Photoshop CS6 on my Ubuntu 14.04 system with a pretty good deal of reliability. Read Ben’s Tutorial by clicking here. It’s worth noting that the PlayOnLinux software works well for many other windows applications like office, and games, but it may require quite a bit of tweaking to achieve desirable results, but it is a viable option for installing those windows applications that you just can’t live without. Is there anything that Linux can’t do, now?

Stumbled across this link that is a masterpiece of amazing Javascript last night while trolling the ends of the internet for cool web dev stuff. It’s a google experiment. It’s a simple web app that creates amazing visuals in your browser with webGL. Drag and drop a file onto it to play it back. Really impressive project, but NOT open source code.
Don’t even think of stealing it. Take a peek!    Click HERE.adiveintomusic

Google’s Inbox App can send replies for you

inboxAn incredibly interesting new feature has hit Google’s inbox app. It’s a feature we’ve all been dreaming about for years. It composes replies to messages automatically in natural language and allows you to choose from several intelligent responses before sending. Sounds pretty neat, huh? Google says a whopping 10 percent of all mobile replies from Inbox are already composed using the feature, so it must work pretty well.
