Macbook Pro

Photo BoothI recently was able to convince the department to get a macbook pro so that I could start getting up-to-speed with the new Intel architecture. People have been getting them in the department for a couple of months and soon I'm going to be setting up labs with the new platform and it will be useful to get my feet wet in using the new processor to see what works and what doesn't.

One thing that comes with the new macbook is a built-in "isight" camera and an application called "Photo Booth". You can use Photobooth to take pictures, much like a photo booth, but you can also apply a variety of effects, several of which are jaw-droppingly funny -- especially for kids. Above you can see a picture we put together with the "mirror" filter.

So far, I haven't found anything that doesn't just work. I'm impressed.
