AutoCAD — Now on the Mac

Oh Happy Days...

The word is out… Autodesk have announced that it is bringing AutoCAD back to the Mac…
“The release of AutoCAD for Mac marks the return of professional design and engineering software to the Mac platform and an important convergence of power and design," said Amar Hanspal, senior vice president, Autodesk Platform Solutions and Emerging Business. "Over 5000 customers have helped develop this product through our beta program and they are delighted to have the choice of a native Mac version of AutoCAD.”AutoCAD for Mac sports an intuitive, Mac-like interface that includes graphical browsing of design files with Cover Flow, use of Multi-Touch gestures on Mac notebooks, and use of the Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad for pan and zoom.  AutoCAD 2011 for Mac works on Intel machines running OS X 10.5 or OS X 10.6.

Sneak Peek

I know what I'll be doing this weekend… studying the #AU2010 and AU Virtual Class catalogue which has been uploaded to the AU Online website.
"To help you plan and optimize your AU 2010 experience, take a look at the complete AU 2010 Conference and AU Virtual class catalogs now. All conference classes are in English and are alphabetized, but the AU Virtual classes are organized first by language—English, Spanish, Portuguese—and within those sections alphabetically. These catalogs are preliminary and are still subject to change."Don't forget, if you're an AU Online member, you can register and reserve classes for #AU2010 conference on September 7 - one week earlier than the general public… how cool is that!!!

Happy Birthday...

Happy Birthday "Between The Lines"
may you have many many more… thanks Shaan for the information, entertainment…
