This isn’t the latest news, but if you haven’t heard of diffusion curves, watch the video. A diffusion curve is defined as “a bezier spline that stores colors on each side of the space it divides.” Neat.
Adobe was part of the paper, so I’m not sure if they own the technology or not. Here’s hoping they get the rights to it and include it in Flash in the future. Animating individual curves would lead to some great effects.
Check out their images (pepper, lady bug, woman) that you can rollover to see the how simple the underlying curves information is.
Dropbox is great. I’ve been using their basic/free plan for a little while now. And I’ve been very close to upgrading to a paid version for more storage, but thanks to Google, I’ll be waiting a bit longer to make that jump.
Google is offering storage at $0.25 per GB per year; that’s $25 with Google vs. $240 with Dropbox for 100 GB. Now, Dropbox has more features with auto syncing and version history, but there are already 3rd party apps working with Google Docs so we’ll probably see similar features down the road.
My guess is Dropbox and ZumoDrive are about to get cheaper.
I’ve been freelancing at VSA Partners for the last couple months, and today is my first official day on their full-time roster as a Senior Developer. I’m looking forward to putting out some good work here.
