Photoshop's CAF (content-aware fill) -...
o3: John Nack posted a “sneak peek” of an upcoming Photoshop feature called Content-Aware Fill. There’s an impressive video as well. Users are predictably drooling; some can’t even believe such a wonder is possible. They can rest assured - it is possible and it has been around for years, e.g. in the GIMP plugin by Paul Harrison called Resynthesizer. Here are some examples of what...
Him: Is that a mandolin?
Him: What does a mandolin sound like, cause I don't really know how it sounds different than a violin.
Me: Well it's tuned the same as a violin, but it has doubled strings and you play it with a pick. *strum strum pick pick strum*
Him: Oh, it sounds like a ukelele.

Yesterday. And then: Today!
Yesterday was soul crushing. I went to a career seminar thingy to see about getting a job in a retail store. About half way through it, I started fantasizing about running out the door screaming, “OH GOD WHO AM I WHAT AM I DOING HERE?!?!” (For the record, I didn’t do it, but I was near crying on the bus ride home.) So, if just sitting and listening to someone talk about a job...

They could read it. They could act it. They could do it with puppets. Whatever they wanted. The only rules were it had to be a tweet written by someone else and it had to contain the entire tweet and nothing...
