NPS Image Editor 3.1.0 has been released! This release has been long in the making due to a large number of internal improvements that were necessary to support some new features for this release (and new ones going forward) but it includes some significant improvements to the color picker, new color spaces, and new filters.

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Review

The Yoga 2 Pro is a convertible ultrabook with a unique design that allows it to function as a laptop, tablet, and something in between. This is a refresh of the original Yoga which brings faster hardware and an insanely high-resolution 3200x1800-pixel screen to the product. I purchased one of these machines about a week ago, and here are my experiences with it so far.

NPS Image Editor has gone Beta!

It's finally here! After a summer's worth of work, the NPS Image Editor Beta is now available for you to download and use. I'm amazed at how far NPS has come since the original never-publicly-released version nearly 7 years ago, and I hope to continue that original dream by making the application grow. Thanks to everyone who has helped me out in any way to make this a reality!

How I would fix Windows 8

Windows 8 has introduced some radical changes to the user interface, the likes of which have not been seen since Windows 95's introduction of the Start menu.

NPS Image Editor, Alpha 4

NPS Image Editor has been in alpha stage for a while, due to the fact that I've been busy with classes, work, and projects around the house. Nonetheless, the promised yearly release has been built, and while not as grand as some of the previous ones, it is almost universally an improvement in subtle but useful ways.

Logitech MX 1100 Mouse Review

After using some of Logitech's higher-end mice for a few days at a time, I realized I needed more. The solution to my digital rodent needs manifested itself as a refurbished Logitech MX1100. I've been using my MX1100 for several weeks now, and I must say I enjoy it very much, despite a few quirks.
