Poladroid

26 10 2008

A new application was recommended to me today called Poladroid. You feed it an image from your computer and it processes it to look like an old Polaroid photo. You even have to wait for it to develop! There’s a demo video here. I also have some before and after shots:

So, it’s fun to use (you can even shake the developing images to make them show up quicker) and produces Polaroid-like results. I’ve even noticed that it discolours the photos slightly, just like a real Polaroid! Also, when you have ten images on your desktop, if you try to make another one, a dialog box will pop up:

How realistic is that? There is some bad news though. Firstly, the instruction manual and some of the menus are in French. Second, it’s Mac only, so tough luck, Windows users! I’ve had fun using it and although it’s a tad pointless, I won’t be deleting it just yet!

It’s time for another first on Mr Cheese’s Random Ramblings: a poll!

Yippee For Apple!

9 09 2008

I’m very happy today, because Apple held their “Let’s Rock” event today. Amongst iTunes 8, which now features HD TV shows, the new iPod Nano, which comes in:

  • Silver
  • Black
  • Purple
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Orange
  • Red and
  • Oink (otherwise known as Pink)

and also features an iPhone-esque accelerometer which enables Cover Flow¬†and Shake-to-Shuffle. But my favourite part? The new, thinner, better, iPod Touch! Seeing as I want one of my October birthday, this is a good time to release a new one. It includes a built-in speaker, a better UI (User Interface) and they’ve redesigned it to look like an iPhone. Yay! Although I haven’t read the price section yet…
