    Comment on Anybody use a Mac Mini?
    <b>
    Right now, at work, I'm using an early 2011 MacBook Pro. It's had no problems at all. I'll likely get a new one early next year, but I'm in no hurry because I don't want to give up the 17-inch display....

    Overall I haven't really ever had any problems with macs either. Basically just the grpahics card problems I've been talking about. And the 2011 MBP is notorious for them (which is what I have now)....

    This is a puzzling discussion because the things described run counter to my experiences.

    I've been buying Macs since 1984, and have probably owned, maybe, a couple dozen of them. Also during...

    Okay, first attempt at less boring. More variation in text size and background, some different images, shadows. Tried a few different layouts but nothing was hitting me. I actually like "hospice...

  • Graphic Design, Online Schools.

    Looking into getting a degree online from Ai (Art Institute) or Academy of Art online. I was wondering if anyone has had any experiences with these schools and if they are accredited and looked at , just like any other school. Possibly gonna be Graphic design major or Photography.

    Thanks for any or all input!

          First off there are two major types of accreditation that you'll need to look into. But at one point in time I was considering an online school. I had requested some information from the art institute and a consult via phone. I had a conversation with someone who claimed to be in charge of admissions, but couldn't shake the feeling I was talking to a used car dealer. Very pressuring and almost desperate to get you enrolled into the school. This was a major turnoff for me, and for the next several weeks they would blow up my phone, calling at least 3 times a day trying to talk me into enrolling. Even if the school is worthwhile I couldn't take any academic institution seriously that seems to want to enroll as many people as possible.

            I don't take any graphic design program seriously that doesn't require a portfolio review of prospective students.
