Put Your iPod To Good Use - 9/24/07

I remember my first Sony Walkman. It was awesome: totally affordable, able to play an infinite amount of music (provided you had those little information cassettes that stored the music files) and really portable-it almost fit in your pocket!

Photographer Of The Week: Parish Kohanim - 9/17/07

I just got off the phone with Atlanta-based beauty photographer Parish Kohanim. He's not only a great conversationalist, but also an amazing photographer whose work will not only benefit those of you who want to delve into the world of studio or fine art photography, but exploring his eloquent images serve as great exemplification of what is possible in a controlled environment, or elsewhere.

Breaking The Rules - 9/3/07

Long-Life Power Play - 8/27/07
