What is going on? G+ was scrolling really slow on Chrome, so I Googled the problem. Someone suggested turning off Flash in Chrome. I did and now the page is scrolling normally. WTF? I don't see a whole lot of Flash on the page. Why would that help? Something is screwy...

On the Galaxy S4

I got to spend some quality time with the S4 (final hardware) before I left Samsung. I'm a huge fan of the S3 and use one everyday, so I was quite pleased with the S4. Yeah, there is no refresh of the industrial design other than a few minor things such as the edging, but the device actually feels quite a bit more solid than the S3. Specwise, this device blows the competition out of the water. There are a number of unique features that have a lot of potential (assuming Samsung is opening up an API for them) such as the touchscreen which can register "hover" events, and an IR blaster. Benchmarks put this device FAR above the competition (40K on Quadrant CPU) and there should be no reason why it won't run your favorite apps flawlessly.

On the Galaxy S4

I got to spend some quality time with the S4 (final hardware) before I left Samsung. I'm a huge fan of the S3 and use one everyday, so I was quite pleased with the S4. Yeah, there is no refresh of the industrial design other than a few minor things such as the edging, but the device actually feels quite a bit more solid than the S3. Specwise, this device blows the competition out of the water. There are a number of unique features that have a lot of potential (assuming Samsung is opening up an API for them) such as the touchscreen which can register "hover" events, and an IR blaster. Benchmarks put this device FAR above the competition (40K on Quadrant CPU) and there should be no reason why it won't run your favorite apps flawlessly. GPS seems to work better than any other Samsung device, with a lock being acquired instantly in almost any condition. The camera is excellent as well, both front and back.

TouchWiz has become a bit more consistent with the latest upgrade. There are no more jarring mismatches in different parts of the OS, and it's been lightened up a bit and has a clean "flat" feel. Unfortunately, it feels like it has been sent a few years back in time to the Froyo days. Say goodbye to all of the nice touch-friendly ViewPagers and say hello again to a fully tabbed UI. You'll also enjoy the seemingly endless onslaught of popup windows and modal "Loading..." dialogs. UI performance is average. It's better and worse at the same time, depending on your viewpoint I suppose.

On the features side, it's absolutely loaded with stuff. Some of the new features are very useful like the "hover" preview where you can just point at an email message without touching the screen and it shows a preview of the message. The multi-window feature is present here, and is nice to have around when you need it. The camera app has seen some significant upgrades too, with live previews of the postprocessing effects and a new UI. My least favorite new feature is "Smart Scroll" which is supposed to scroll based on face detection + tilt, but it mostly serves to anger me into disabling it.

The Samsung Hubs are featured front-and-center, and seem to signify independence from the rest of the Android ecosystem. Play is still far more functional, but its a strong effort and I have no doubt that Samsung will keep improving here.

It's a solid device and a clear choice if you are upgrading from the GS2. You'll feel right at home if you have a GS3 currently, but upgrading is probably less urgent (especially if you're on contract).

I'll probably be picking up the T-Mobile variant when they hit the shelves, assuming they don't lock the bootloaders or something silly and self-defeating like that. Since it's powered by Snapdragon, CM should work wonderfully on it :)

Edit: I'll do a comparison vs. the new HTC One as soon as I get my hands on one, it looks pretty solid too.___

Lessons learned:

If, for some reason you want to upgrade a perfectly fine Windows 7 touch screen tablet to Windows 8, make sure you have the following items available:

1. A USB Keyboard
2. A USB Mouse
3. A USB External DVD drive
4. A USB wireless Network Adapter
5. A USB hub (To plug them all into)
6. Your Reg code (Win8 will not allow you to proceed without it, unlike Win7)

This all could have gone very smoothly if I had anticipated a few things before starting. On the bright side, I do not have to go out and buy a new WIN8 touchscreen table. My Dell Latitude ST runs it just fine, once you get over all the humps.

This is a great circle. I have learned much from following them...

The AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER's VIP Circle –– Announcement Post

#CircleSharingForThePeopleAPCVIP

As you all know I emptied all shared circles in order to bring some more freshness and interestingness into them again. Unfortunately I deleted the AP VIP Circle as well in the process (unintentionally of course). So I will start collecting you people into the VIP circle again.

READ the WHOLE post BEFORE you ask for inclusion.

What is the VIP circle?
It is a circle for people that are following me AND my +Photoshop Tutorials page and that wants to learn more about digital photography, editing in Photoshop, lighting set-ups, tips, tricks, tweaks and hacks and so on. On the above mentioned page I will put up posts that are only visible to people in the VIP circle, related to the equally above mentioned topics. In other words, it's a great way to improve your photographic skills and learn more from me and other members of the group.

I will share this circle with everybody on Monday, August 13.

Who can join?
Everybody. You don't need to be particularly good or bad –– as long as you have a profound interest for photography.

What must you do?

As with all my circles, there are no free rides. Here are the rules (steps you must take) to get accepted:

1) –– Add me AND the +Photoshop Tutorials page to your circles.

2) –– Plus AND reshare this post. Why? It's very simple: if you want to get all the goodies and get promoted in the original APC, you must be prepared to promote your fellow photographer as well. Do NOT remove this reshared post from your feed immediately after I have added you to the circle. Doing so will get you banned from all my future circle shares.

3) –– Make sure that you do NOT post a lot of YouTube clips, animated GIF's, blog post teasers etc. in your feed. I don't mind a few reshares of other people's work but you must mainly share your own original work on your page. I want ths VIP circle to be as clean as possible and focus on photography –– not other bling-bling. 

4) –– Ask for inclusion in the comments and please state which kind of photography you are into and that you HAVE completed all steps. I will check every feed.

Have something to say about my circles? Wanna know what others gained from being in the circles? Then go here: https://plus.google.com/116219534929662479848/posts/7Evg2rSE2Hv 

NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the circle. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this announcement post and let me know that you did so.

*This announcement post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleAPCVIP so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post in the future. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares.* 

Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/

Cheers!___This is a great circle. I have learned much from following them...

Abolish "Blue Heads"...

+Tina Vale , I and others were chatting today about "Blue Heads"
For those who don't know what we mean, when you first join Google Plus, you are offered an opportunity to set your profile picture. If you don't, you get a "blue head" in the place where your profile picture goes.
So, I'm asking all you unpictured peeps who have circled me (thank you SO much for that, by the way) to fixt that. Would you please consider doing so? While I'm a real fan of faces that match your real life visage, even a logo is better than a "blue head."
Do it today please! Here's the link to get started:
