As a kid, I only went out Halloweening once. I put on … Read the rest of this item

Those groovy code monkeys over at Bare Bones Software sure do know how to release a minor dot revision. They list nearly six full pages of feature additions, bug fixes, and other functionality tweaks for the BBEdit 6.0.1 update. That’s a lot of value for your software dollar.

What am I not getting here? Adobe has this program called Clearly Adobe Imaging. It seems to be, in my mind, an obscure implementation of brand dilution that attempts to indicate and proclaim the benefits of “the technology you can trust”, presumably from Adobe.
