comment What computer hardware matters to a graphic designer?
One thing about the RAM: if you are using a 32-bit application it cannot reference more than 3-3.5 GB RAM because it cannot reference number larger than a 32-bit representation. So in Scott's example 32GB no single 32-bit program can ever use all of that memory. (Adobe products are available in 64-bit versions.)

comment Industry secrets of effective brochure / advert design
I doubt you meant e.g. copyright law when you posted this question, and beyond that there really are no rules. GD is an art not a science; if you are lucky, you might create a little capital A art while doing it.

comment Unpixelated Screenshot images
For clarity: the 400% enlargement that SnagIt creates is a resampled image, correct? Do you know what method is used? Bicubic etc?

comment Vectors or 300 dpi TIFFs for printing?
note that 450 dpi vector may be misleading because one may embed a rasterized item 100px square flagged as 450dpi and then scale the vector to 11x17 inches, which just scales up the embedded 100x100px art to 3300x5100px (11x17 @ 300dpi).

comment Name for blocky, imprecise illustration style (like Saul Bass, Paul Rand)
"Saul Bass" is probably the closest you'll get. I really don't think there is a particular label aside from maybe Modernist Movie Posters such as West Side Story.

While IIRC Rand practically invented Swiss Style, none of the samples in the original question conform to the Swiss Style.

@flavius: I presume you are using windows (ctrl+s shortcut)?

comment File backups for Photoshop
The problem with this approach is that OP will need to hit "save" and then manually commit the file/branch. He/she wants something which happens at the software level or even protects files from overwrites. Do you know if any of these have a way to watch a folder and auto-commit-on-change?

comment Solid colours look ugly in web design?
Consider color rather than colors, also consider a pattern rather than patterns
