No iPhone -> iPad Tethering

An interesting excerpt from TechFlash:

    Responding to a question posed on TechFlash by Steve Rubel, an AT&T spokeswoman told us via email today that it won't be possible to tether the iPhone to the iPad to share Internet access with the Apple slate, citing the fact that the iPad doesn't have any USB ports to enable a wired connection between the devices.

    Wait a second, what about Bluetooth? Apple own support page makes it clear that the iPhone allows wireless Bluetooth tethering. But in another TechFlash comment, Mac expert and Seattle journalist Glenn Fleishman notes that he "discovered in testing that the iPad includes the Bluetooth profile required for tethering, but it is not enabled."

What Is the Easiest Way to Get Rid of Backgrounds on Stock Images?

Once in a while we find really valuable information among our feeds. Today has been that day:

As I researched this topic, I quickly discovered why we’re all so frustrated: there is no silver bullet technique for background removal. On the one hand, removing backgrounds from photos can be tedious and time-consuming work—often with only so-so results. On the other, if there’s any one thing that sets apart a standard-looking presentation from an exceptional-looking presentation, it’s the visual integration of images into the slide background.

Still, Trina Rimmer made an investigation, and at the end she came up with great video tutorials for 5 tools that she commonly uses: PowerPoint, Fotoflexer, Paint.net, GIMP, Aviary.
