Love or hate Flight, I don't think there will be many out there that didn't at the very least enjoy the first 30 minutes or so and weren't jolted to attention with the film's dramatic crash sequence. Today the New York Times is taking a closer look at the editing of the sequence, which includes the above image, which previews a look at what six minutes of the film looks like in the AVID editing system. Give the picture a click for a much larger and detailed version.

MIT Lab Develops Glasses-Free 3D TV

December 4, 2012, 10:54 PM

MIT Media Lab’s Camera Culture is developing a 3D display screen that does not require the use of special 3D glasses. While holographic TVs remain some distance in the future, this project is a much more practical solution in the short term. The project was featured in this summer’s Siggraph computer-graphics conference, where the MIT Media Lab’s Camera Culture group offered a new approach to multiple-perspective, glasses-free 3D display.

G-Technology G-Drive Mobile: Review and giveaway

December 3, 2012, 02:41 PM

It's been a while since TUAW reviewed a hard drive. Recently, G-Technology sent one of their 1 TB G-Drive Mobile USB 3.0/2.0/FW drives (USD179.95) to run through the paces. That relatively low price is a result of not having a Thunderbolt interface, and since all of the new Macs are coming with USB 3.0, I thought it would be a good drive to test out. I don't currently own a USB 3.0-equipped Mac, so the benchmarks listed below were provided by my colleague Erica Sadun.
