NY Times Tech Gift Suggestions, Pope To Tweet And Photoshop & Illustrated Updated For Retina Displays

New York Times Tech Gift Suggestions: New York Times tech columnist David Pogue is offering up twelve gift suggestions for the tech fan on your holiday shopping list. His list is titled David Pogue’s 12 Days of Gadgets and the list includes gift suggestions that are all priced under $100; because as Pogue says how many people really have unlimited funds to buy all the tech fans on their gift list $500 iPads! And just because the tech items are less expensive does not mean they are not cool! Consider the first suggested gift — a “Zapped” version of Monopoly, which costs $25 and which requires the use of an iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone. This version of the game does away with paper money altogether and instead has the Apple device be the bank and allows players to use plastic Monopoly credit cards to pay for properties by passing them in front of the iPod, iPhone or iPad.

Pope To Tweet: Pope Benedict now has an official Twitter handle @pontifex and will begin offering regular Twitter comments tomorrow, Wednesday, December 12, 2012.

Photoshop & Illustrated Updated For Retina Displays: Adobe has updated its Photoshop and Illustrator software to work with Retina displays. So if you have a new MacBook Pro with a Retina Display the photos and graphics you create using Photoshop and Illustrator should be even more stunning! And that fact is cool! However, I must admit my favorite part of the MASHABLE! article on the subject,  Adobe Updates Photoshop and Illustrator For Retina Displays, is the photo they show of the cat playing with the candy canes! Cat fan that I am –that is cool too! Here’s the link to the article:
