Toshiba's New Tablet Has Something Big Coming Out of Its Head


According to the Boy Genius Report, Toshiba showed off a brand new tablet at the company's own mini-tradeshow. This mysterious new tablet is the AT330, which includes a television tuner amongst other new features—including the latest version of Android.

At the moment, though, there aren't too many details out on the interwebs. But we're sure that this new device will be one of the first forays into the merging of computers, tablets and televisions.

Adobe Photoshop CS6 Goes Into Beta

New features were previously teased in Photoshop CS6, but Adobe's move to release a beta version hints that it may be coming in the near future, if the company follows the pattern of what they did with Lightroom.

New changes include additions to the content-awareness system which has become extremely intelligent by now, helping to cut down editing time for many professionals.
