These are two of the "deepest" applications in the Mac Universe and I'm going to need your help. I know you've all got a thousand questions about these apps so please send them along ahead of time to <onair [at] yourmaclifeshow [dot] com> and we'll do our best to get them on the air!

Tonight's Show....

Is uploading as we speak.....Still. :(

The hotel network "timed Out" *AGAIN*!

It's 9AM ET. I'm headed to the show floor to see if I can get it uploaded there. Check back later for the link to the show file.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

YML @ Photoshop World in Boston


It's only the 1st day of Photoshop World and already, I've learned 20 things to make me a better photographer!

While the conference track is sold out, you can still come down to the Convention Center on Thursday and walk the Expo floor for free. Register for the free pass here.

On tonight's show, we'll have Dave Moser of KW Media (organizers of Photoshop World), "Explorer of Light" Ken Skulte and many more. It won't be a live show tonight but it should still be a lot of fun!

YML, Pogue & NPR!

Whew! This announcement has been waiting for a *long* time!

A lot of folks have wondered why we moved to CT. The "official" reason was so Lesa could work closer with David Pogue. But it was also because of a project David needed Shawn's help with - "PogueNation!"

David has really been enjoying the videos, podcasts, CBS spots, etc, he's been doing the past few months. He's really wanted to do even more of it but he's never had the time to go into New York on a regular basis or the equipment in CT to do it. That's where Your Mac Life comes in. :)

Panasonic and the Red Rock Desert

Thanks to the folks at Panasonic, we went to the Red Rock Desert early Friday morning to shoot the desert with some of Panasonic's latest consumer cameras:

The trip was a lot of fun and not only because we got to ride in real military spec Hummers, thanks to Desert Fox Tours:

The Hummer was an absolute blast and an amazing ride. We actually went off-roading in the beast and experienced first hand its agility and incredible climbing power.

PMA 2nd Day

Just got back off the show floor. Here are today's photos!

PMA 2nd Day

PMA in Las Vegas!

Your Mac Life is at the Photo Marketing Association Convention in Las Vegas this week.

We went to a wonderful dinner last night, thanks to Canon. But I couldn't take any pics - After all, it was a Canon event and I carry a Nikon but we had a great time and learned a lot about the new EOS-1D Mark III Digital SLR:

This morning, we were up at *4AM* to take a Hummer ride out to the Red Rock Desert, Thanks to the nice folks at Panasonic.

That ain't right. in Las Vegas, you should be going to *bed* at 4Am - not getting up!
