Background Tip of the Day

This one's for our designer friends. Looking for an interesting background for something you're designing? Open iTunes, and turn on visualization. Use "Grab" to do a screen capture when you see something interesting. Of course you can manipulate your image in Photoshop later, but using a screengrab from iTunes and using a Gaussian blur can make some very visually interesting backgrounds. A few additional tips. I noticed when doing the image grab, you need to do "capture selection" instead of window. In addition, the lower the frame rate, the less chance you have at capturing the interpolation associated with de-interlacing as the image refreshes.
