So here it is, the web2.0 app you’ve all been waiting for. We’d covered Content-Aware Image Resizing before in two of our articles here and here. Now it looks like there is rsizr is actually the working 2.0 app that can do this type of Seam Carving. Try it out…..it’s magic.

First of all, sorry for posting on this article, but I figured it would be a little easier than going and finding it in the two months ago discussion on how I can’t do anything for myself yet in computers.
Second, I need a little more help. I can’t seem to find a very cheap Mac desktop without totally sacrificing the latest features soooo… I’ve been looking around other places and can’t seem to find any good info on other computers to use. Right now I’m looking at this HP computer (I don’t really like HP’s, they’re like dell’s snotty little brother, but he’s a cheap little tyke, and I’m broke) that is slimmed down, but with full features. I don’t like the looks of him very much, so I was wondering, would it be good enough for basic school needs, and programming in a Ubuntu add-on that I do myself? Or should I look elsewhere? Dell’s got a couple of kinda cheap ones… Anyway, sorry for tossing my troubles on you like this. Thanks for reading at least.
Oh, and also, laptop vs. desktop doesn’t matter much. Thanks.
I’ve done a lot of looking in the IBM department, and have put together a relatively cheap, decent thinkpad. Would it be a good buy, or are thinkpads not to good? I’ll be adding my own Ubuntu on to it also, so is all that possible too?
Sorry about the delay…..was on vacation. HP I don’t know much about (in terms of linux). IBM (Lenova for notebook) or Dell both are pretty linux friendly on the desktop and notebook front.
To be sure I would pick a linux distro and then start looking which of these companies supports that distro better. From experience, right now I would say Ubuntu, SuSE, Redhat (in that order) in terms of widest support.
For ubuntu hardware support take a look at their wiki: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport
For the other two you have to do a bit of googling :-)
Hey, are barebones pcs a good alternative pc? It looks like you have to put them together though. How would you do that? I think I could google and find somethin, but I don’t want to sign up for a paperweight that I can’t use. What do you think?
Yeah, Barebone PC’s would work as a Linux/WinXP box aswell. They are pretty much a standard PC, squeeshed down. Putting them together is another problem. If you’ve never put together a PC before I would be cautious about putting one of these together. Google is your friend in that case :-)
