With the upcoming release of OS 3.0, the iPhone suddenly gains its normal phone status. The previous releases were missing very basic components, such as MMS and SMS forwarding, which were features taken for granted in other phones. With 3.0, users will enjoy MMS, SMS forwarding, bluetooth, cut copy & paste (the most important feature I feel was missing on the current OS) among many others. Well in details, Apple claims there are 100 new features. Visit Apple.com

If you are into digital creations/manipulation, you will love this new online software from the people who created worth1000.

Aviary, is a suite of free design tools. Now anyone with internet access can use them without installing anything. You just need to visit Aviary and you’re all set. Aviary should be enough for anyone to get started making some really amazing images (and other types of media). Aviary also allows you to share and work on files with other people in the Aviary community, which makes it even easier to learn.
So far they have released 4 applications into public beta, with many more planned:

– Phoenix: a layer-based image editor (similar to Adobe Photoshop / Gimp)
– Raven: a vector editor (useful for logos / and clothing design)
– Toucan: a color editor
– Peacock: an effects editor

Really really really small. Comes with interesting new features, such as VoiceOver, or VO. Since it’s still missing the screen, the new iPod can tell you the name of the song (in 14 different languages) you’re listening to via voice with a press of a button. Another interesting feature is the multiple playlist. Black and white colors available. www.apple.com

HELP! the lebanese movie that ironically needs help

Posted in Controversial, Movies by CreativeForces on March 3, 2009

HELP! a new lebanese movie directed by Mark Abi Rached, was due to open to weeks back, yet never did. After a highly acclaimed avant premiere, the state’s censorship department retracted the licence. Below you can find a detailed synopsis of the movie, which somehow relates to drugs, prostitution and homosexuality among other stories. 28 minutes of the 87 minute movie has to be cut before the licence can be given back. Interest was piqued by the fact that lead actress and who appears nude in the movie, is the daughter of a Lebanese MP.

A psychological-social drama, “Help” tells a story of choice and destiny in a Lebanese context, bringing together the lives of a prostitute, a juvenile delinquent, a wealthy businessman, and a cab driver, among others. The film also tackles homosexuality and prostitution by presenting actors in a realistic light intended to reveal the basic humanity behind these issues.

Full story and trailer can be found on www.nowlebanon.com and www.news-lab.net
