    Maccast loop

    This is Victor (user name goes back to before I owned a mac). The talkshoe servers were part of a GoDaddy issue yesterday so the download was really slow. Usually it is not this way. It should be pretty much as fast as the normal maccast, although they are in two different locations. It's nice to see feedback on the show and I'm proud to be a small part of it. Victor Cajiao

    Well, I really appriciate the plugs for the show guys. I'ts my pleasure to help and to do the show for anyone who wants to listen. Victor
  5. Well this weekend I took the plunge and decided on a Power Book 15" vs the new Mac Book Pro. One (but not the only one) of my deciding factors was my need to use EVDO technology http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EVDO in order to get on line access anywhere, anytime. After purchasing my Power book I went to my local Verizon store and within 20 minutes I had invested $179.00 for the Kyocera KPC650 EVDO Card http://reviews.cnet.com/Kyocera_KPC650/450...7-31383678.htmland had upgraded my plan to an all you can eat data plan for $60.00 month. The card is one of the only ones that easily work with Macs and it was an easy plug and play operation. I spent the rest of the day going do different places to see what kind of bandwidth I was getting. I live in So. California, so yes we have good digital coverage. Everywhere I went my average download benchmark was 606Kbps download and 69Kbps upload The advertised rates which Verizon says you will get is around 445 to 512 kbps down with bursts that are greater than that. Time will tell if I continue to be happy with this card. However this is at least 3X's faster than I was getting using my TREO 600 as a Modern on my "old" PC Based laptop. My remote browsing experience will no longer depend on Starbucks or Wi-Fi being available where I'm at. I will ride the EVDO digital stream when it's available, and when it's not the card will do down to speeds of 56K to about 145kbps downloads (still not bad). I wanted to open this discussion up to the community as I had not seen a similar one. Please remember if you are a new Mac User (like me) to visit my podcast at www.typicalmacuser.com Enjoy Victor Cajiao

    G5 Fan noise.....what?!?!?!?

    I have a 20" G5 and yes when I'm working with Pro apps doing editing for my podcast it gets very hot and the fan is very loud. However other than that it's quieter than my P4 PC. Victor

    New 5th Gen iPod scratches easy too

    I just got my new 60 Gig Black 5th Gen iPod last Wednesday. Mind you I have kept it in a DLO soft (cushion like) case I have for my 4th gen almost the entire time. I noticed today Sunday that it as some minor but visible scratches in towards the bottom of it, that appear to be caused only by slipping it, in and out of the case. I had a 4th gen and third gen (white) and never noticed this issue. Again, probably not something that I would return it for (yet) but it does seem to be a lot more susceptible to these scratches. Don't know if it's because it's black and I'm just paying more attention. Lastly the wheel is also getting scratches too, and that was never a problem. Functionally however this thing rocks.
