Same 'ol Same 'ol

It nice to see that somethings life don't change.

Since my childhood, plenty of things have changed. For one, I'm in college finishing up graduate school. I'm over 600 miles from my parents. I still have no money, but that's besides the point. Of course, that does point to me being right in the middle of my job search. Also, I have girlfriend - the coauthor of this blog. So you see, on many major levels my life has changed a lot.

Currently, my girlfriend is away for the weekend job searching which leaves me all alone. So, I went to GameStop to buy a game only to find they were out. Not only that, the sales person there actually tried to discourage me from getting it. I know he thought he was doing me a favor, but please. There is only one person who is an expert in the games I want to play and that's me. I understand trying to sell me something else, but he didn't even do that. Sorry for the digression, where was I? Oh yeah.

So, I'm at school, alone, looking for something to do. Since I can't play my would be game, I decide to watch a movie. Here I where I come full circle: In the midst of all these changes, it's nice to know that one thing remains constant. Like I said, I was looking for a movie so I could relax (and write this). They all looked so good, but I ended up going with the tried and true. That's right I'm watching Top Gun right now. It is such a great movie! If you haven't seen it, you must. Even if you have seen it, go ahead and watch it again. You'll thank me. I've watched Top Gun so many times I can reenact the whole thing. When I was a kid, this was my favorite movie which I watched at least once a day. I'll admit I don't watch it as often as I used to, but it's still my favorite.

That's it for today. Just a little update on what's going on with me.

Adobe to put Photoshop online

I saw this article the other day:

In the wake of Google announcing they will be selling their application software to corporations, Adobe has come out with some of their own big news. According to the article, Adobe is developing a software program to be used over the web that will act very similar to their current Photoshop program. Users will be able to access and use this program for free.

To me, this is a very interesting bit of news. Does Adobe think that's where software is headed? Is this the way software is headed? If I remember correctly, Microsoft is also going to be coming out with a web app that interfaces very nicely with their current Office software too.

It sure would seem that software is headed in that direction. It makes sense on a bunch of levels for the company. No packaging costs, no shipping costs, no distribution hassles, no sharing revenue with retailers and they can easily update and fix the software. Those are all extremely nice cost savings, which if passed on to the consumers make the products just that much more attractable.

Personally, I'd like to see programs head in that direction. Then I could have multiple computers and not have to worry about my information being where I need it. Plus it would mean I always have the latest and greatest solution at a reasonable cost. Very cool. Anyways, interesting food for thought.

Job Searching

Right now I'm in the midst of my job search. During my process I discovered a neat site. It's called:

It pulls from the top 10 job search sites on the web and displays the most relevant positions to your query. The site uses Google search technology, and has a nice clean display. If you're in the hunt for a job, I highly recommend checking this site out. Even if you're not looking for a job it's pretty fun to do a search to see what's available in your area. Happy hunting.
