    So how is the Content Aware fill different than what I had in MS Digital Image Suite Editor 2006?  ... which doesn't work anymore because of MS updates.... and which I wish they'd just put in Live Photo gallery photo editing part.

    My favorite april fool's joke was when Youtube replaced their old UI with a totally awful one.

    Never used the MS DIgital Suite so I can't tell you.  All I've seen of the content aware feature in Photoshop CS5 is from that video.  It looks impressive but I'm warry of it until I get to play with it hands on.

    haha, is it really that bad?  I typically grab my video watching randomness from http://www.videosift.com
