Tech: The Getty Images iPad app is full of photo-editing win

  • We mentioned this to our boy Charles Apple last night, but it needs to be emphasized. This app makes photo-editing – a job that once required people to spend hours looking at dull Web pages – significantly easier. We used it and found the interface impeccable – it’s just easier than clicking through page after page of photos. We approve. (Do this with iStockPhoto next, guys. Please? You own it. You could do it.) source

Music: Snoop Dogg is top cat at an iconic hip-hop label imprint

  • Priority Records just made him top priority. Everybody loves Snoop Dogg, right? (Well, besides the dogg thing, but today he’s an honorary cat.) Well, Priority Records, a gangsta rap label which released classic West Coast hip-hop from the likes of NWA, Eazy-E, Ice Cube and Westside Connection, is making him creative chairman of the label. Just in time for their 25th anniversary, Priority will put him in charge of a series of releases to commemorate the label’s history. Not bad, Niggarachi. source

Tech: Hate ads? Like art? Try out this new Firefox extension.

  • Sick of ads? In this era when it feels like every single page on the Interweb is loaded with ads, you may just feel like blocking them, and of course, many people do. (Hopefully not on this page, though. :( ) Firefox, in particular, allows you to easily sidestep ads.
  • A creative solution Add-Art allows you to replace those ads for Hardee’s with something a little more visually appealing (and less Thickburger) – a display of a contemporary artist’s work, gallery-style. Those spaces are gonna be there anyway. Might as well not be blank, right? source
