Recently I have written a blog on the Playbook having no arrow keys to get in between the characters of a word/string to edit or adjust the text. As of the release of the new Playbook operating system that has changed. You can now use your finger to slide along the text to get in between the desired characters with ease. So I take it all back....the Playbook also added a type of auto complete, where it shows possibilities above keyboard rather than just try to finish off the word for you. But I digress from my point. The Playbook has made it easier to write documents and emails, it keeps getting better and better...they also released 2 free games with it also. Racing and a first person shooter.... Come on back in March for another Schlitty blog...

As a web designer\developer its important to make sure all your skills are up to par. I use my Google reader to get RSS feeds sent to me from all the Tuts+ series of websites. Doing tutorials is a good way to learn new and practice old skills. I am currently in the ASP part of my course and that works the developing side of my skills. To work my design skills I do a tutorial at least once a month and PSD Tuts+ has something for all skill levels, free and otherwise. I recently completed a very nice leather background that I use on my website ajschlittportfolio.x10.mx. Took me about 20 mins, has high quality results and is another item I can add to the portfolio. Check out psd.tutsplus.com there is a lot of great tutorials for free or if you are more on the intermediate side there is premium ones that you need to sign up for a year.
