HP’s Spectre 13…

So the “optics” on this laptop, the Spectre 13, is that HP is trying to out-design Apple’s MacBook. The result looks awful. More precisely, it looks like the start of an idea killed by design by committee.

HP you don’t get it, do you?

See The Verge’s review here.

Update: The 15″ Spectre X360 has a more than decent design that makes the bling and shape of the golden Spectre look even more odd.

Ars Technica’s review of the 15″ X360 is here.

Cubase VST Transit : cloud-based collaboration

Steinberg has published details about the new VST Transit feature of Cubase Pro 8.5.

Transit is a cloud-based project sharing system.
It includes the simplified transfer of all the media files and synchronisation of the projects state between members invited to the project.  Charged based on data transfer and online storage usage: free basic accounts for now, premium accounts by mid-January.

This looks like a very streamlined user experience for collaborating.

All the details are in the video. See also Cubase’s features page.
