Where does GraphicRiver author Jilson Thomas (myjilson) live? On his computer. Here’s a screenshot. (Click to view it full size on DeviantArt.)

This is the place where I live like heaven. I usually don’t like to see my desktop to be like a waste bin by throwing all the icons everywhere and making it too crowded. I think this make some pretty nice shot! Basically I LOVE MINIMALIST DESIGN. :)

MacBook Air 11 Inch versus iPad by adamjackson1984

We want to hear from you. Each week we give you a chance to share your thoughts, opinions and ideas. Have your say!

I’ve been into computers since the 80s, and never before has there seemed such a change in direction. iPads have taken off while growth of PC sales is stating to decrease. Acer have recorded their first quarterly loss ever. And HP have decided to get out of the computer game altogether.

Are we on the cusp of major changes in the way we use computers, or are the statistics just playing tricks on us? What do you think the computer landscape will look like in one year, in five years?

Getting Your File Approved on GraphicRiver – Part 1

2011

As a reviewer on GraphicRiver, I’ve grown to know the Review Guidelines very well and reviewed more files than grains of sand on the beach. I’ve reviewed some truly awesome files and then, some that aren’t so good.

In the case of the latter, the files usually haven’t followed the guidelines. It’s absolutely imperative you follow them to the tee. And so, with that in mind we’ve decided to publish a helpful two-parter series on how to increase the likelihood of having your file approved to our wonderful marketplace.

This post originally appeared on the GraphicRiver blog in 2009. Most of Ben’s points are still applicable today, though there may be categories created since the article that are not covered here. Any dead links have been removed.
