A Look At Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC

The latest revision to Photoshop Lightroom, called CC (or 6), is a typical Adobe release.

Grand Theft Auto V Review

GTA has taken us from a 2D top-down simulator to a 3D third-person shooter. We’ve been taken back to the 80’s in Vice City and brought back with GTA V.

The Tables Have Turned: Valve’s Learning A Hard Lesson About Paid Mods

When Valve released an update to its Steamworks platform last week to enable paid mods, I’m not sure it realized what kind of backlash could result.

Steam - Pressure Theme (Store and Menu)

Despite the fact that I appreciate great aesthetics and find Steam’s default interface to be a bit lacking, I’ve never felt compelled enough to deal with the hassle of installing a replacement theme.
