Love this awesome, and useful, screensaver by designer Stefan Trifan. The Weather is available for nearly all major cities and shows information for Now, Today, & Tomorrow. The minimal layout and custom iconography make this one of the most beautiful screensavers I’ve seen. Its a free download on Stefan’s website.

Ever since I bought my iPad, I’ve been trying to figure out a good way to use it as both a personal portfolio and a presentation platform for Fresh Artsits. There didn’t seem to be a good option for easily flipping through images, organizing them into projects and seamlessly switching to video in the middle of the whole presentation. Simon Heys’ new app, Minimal Folio fixes all these issues. It easily integrates images and video into one app allowing you to group media into projects. The intuitive navigation allows you to vertically scroll within a project and horizontally scroll to the next project.
Simon plans on adding support for external displays, iPhone remote navigation, and both PDF and Dropbox support. When those features go live, this app will be unstoppable as a presentation tool.
I really love pretty much anything Jessica Hische designs and her new set of Snow Leopard icons are no exception. These icons are beautifully simple and would be a welcome replacement for all the over designed program icons currently living in my (and any one’s) dock.

How to install the icons from Jessica:
I highly suggest everyone skip trying to do it manually and instead opt for Candybar, an awesome application by Panic. You can manually adjust almost all of them (by digging through the resource folders and replacing the .icns files), but on some of them it was a bit tricky and took some figuring out (like the finder is impossible to change in Snow Leopard apparently, but easily changed in Candybar).
My heart skipped a beat when I heard that AutoCAD was coming back to the Mac. Its been rumored for a while now that Autodesk would be releasing a MAC version of their AutoCAD software again for MAC users but I never thought it would actually happen. The last MAC version of the software was released in 1992 with support being stopped in 1994.
The Mac version will cost $3,995, the same as the PC version, and will be released in October. But what is really exciting is that they will be releasing a mobile version of the software for the iPhone and the iPad, with support for future tablets and mobile platforms to come as well.
