In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Pogue's new job, Einstein monoblocs, Elements+ and a free treatise on movie editing.

  • In A Note from Pogue, tech columnist David Pogue announced he has left the N.Y. Times for Yahoo. He admires the Times, he said, "But 13 years is a long time to stay in one place; we all thrive on new experiences. So I was intrigued when Yahoo invited me to help build a new consumer-tech site."
  • In a three-minute video, Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz explains how the Aurum Light team used inexpensive Einstein monoblocs to light its Liquid Series.
  • Andrei Doubrovski has released his $12 Elements+ compatible with Photoshop Elements 12 to "unlock" Curves, Channel Mixer, Black and White, Vibrance, Soft Proof, Color Channels, Smart Objects, Smart Filters, Scripts and more.
  • Soviet film director Vsevolod Illarionovich's Film Technique and Film Acting is a free download from the Internet Archive. In this treatise on film aesthetics, he explains that what separates movies from other art forms is editing, the building of scenes, cuts, takes into comprehensible sequences.

More to come...
