So, you’ve finally bought or built the desktop computer tower you’ve wanted. It’s got the processor with the speed you need, the graphics card that cost you a pretty penny, a large amount of RAM and hard drive storage space as well all the ports you need. Unfortunately, you’re not done yet.

When I’ve been hired to do a job at a specific time and location, I typically go out of my way to make sure that I arrive at least 15 minutes early, if not more. I don’t do this to impress the client, I do it for my own well-being. I do it for peace of mind.

No matter how you quantify it—whether it's dollars, hours, blood, sweat or tears—filmmaking is an expensive business. Filmmakers go to great pains to create the best images possible, and each step in the workflow is crucial. However, if you are a “filmmaker” who actually shoots “films” on film, the digital intermediary process is an especially critical link in the chain.

The tablet market has gotten a lot more crowded lately. When Windows 8 was released last October, it became clear that Microsoft was looking to make an impact.

Have you ever tried moving a large 20GB file from one computer to another without a network-attached storage drive? It’s a painful, slow process with a substantial chance of failure. Also, seeing a Windows or Mac computer progress bar estimate that it’s going to take a little over a year to finish the data transfer doesn’t exactly help.

I’ve seen powerful images in all facets of photography, from street portraiture to landscapes. As I grow and see my own photographic vision develop, more and more the powerful moments I’m capturing are the small, personal moments... the moment two children make each other laugh, a family all snuggled in bed together... a mother bathing her child in the kitchen sink.

Last year at CES, it was all about the Ultrabook. Ultrathin and ultraportable but yet still powerful enough to be used as a capable computer, the Ultrabook was everything people wanted in a notebook. Now it seems that CES 2013 was all about the mobile all-in-one computer.

Whether you’ve just bought a retail computer or built one yourself, there’s one thing that happens to both of them the moment you turn them on: they quickly become obsolete. Technology is always changing and you’ll find yourself constantly trying to keep up with the latest upgrades. A quad-core processor may seem like a fast processor, but now AMD makes an eight-core processor.
