As you may know, I'm a student at a college in Austria (officially it's called HLW - Höhere Lehranstalt für wirtschaftliche Berufe, but no one I know can translate that into nice english, so...). Now, Apple has recently announced that it is entering into the textbook market with iBooks 2. Personally I think this is really cool and has some really cool advantages for pupils, but I also think that this will not be used in austrian school for at least another 50 years.

As you might have heard, I'm currently working in munich for the next 3 weeks. Because it got really hot outside, @schlingel and I decided to go into the rather cool (as in temperature means) "Deutsches Musem", the largest museum of the world, and look at interesting stuff like old computer, photography stuff, all sorts of transportation vehicles, be it on land, sea, air and space.

Most modern DSLRs have a feature called "PTP" which is used to remotely control the camera via USB, make images and download them onto the computer. This feature can be pretty handy if you are into stop motion animation or time-lapse photography. iStopMotion is a software from Boinx Software which does pretty much everything you need to make such movies. Sadly Canon DSLRs are not supported by Apple, so they also don't work in iStopMotion. But there is a pretty simple way around this limitation.

Today the Mac App Store openend, and with it a great App, Twitter for Mac (formerly known as Tweetie 2) went public. The App is really great, featuring livestreams, a great UI and some cool features here and there. But I won't talk about Twitter for Mac now, because I think there is something more important to talk about.
