  1. When you are in any library in iTunes (Music, Movies, TV Shows, etc), you can navigate the contents from top to bottom from within the Get Info window by using the Next and Previous buttons on the bottom left hand corner of the window. Except in Podcasts. It has puzzled me for months, and I still have not figured out the logic behind the seemingly random jumping around that these buttons produce when in the Podcast library. Does anyone know what's going on here? Is there a way I can make the Podcast library behave like the others? Thanks!

    new iPod shuffle

    So don't keep us in suspense, did your podcast plan work?

    no more Classic?

    Macbooks don't run Classic, but you can find other emulations such as SheepShaver that work pretty well. I use Classic-on-Intel which is a version of SheepShaver all pre-set up for you with OS 9 and disk images to transfer files.
  4. Go into the Podcasts Tab on your iPod device menu in iTunes, and you can choose a number of sync options from the dropdown menu. I prefer to have more control over it though, and it sounds like you do too. All I do is check the box on the Summary tab that says "Sync only checked songs and videos." Then you should be able to do what you're already doing: Check the boxes for the podcasts you want on the iPod, and when you don't want them on there anymore just uncheck them.

    Of course! I probably should have done that to begin with. Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06ws6M2-S3w.
  6. It worked! Note to self, make sure not to lose the recovery disk!

    Multiple Operating Systems Through Boot Camp

    Found this, and thought you might find it helpful. It describes some of the limitations and difficulties of triple booting with Boot Camp, and gives instructions on how to do it. Try it at your own risk, though...

    Make sure you have a good backup!

    Multiple Operating Systems Through Boot Camp

    If you're going to go the virtualization route, check out VirtualBox from Sun Microsystems. It is very similar to Fusion and Parallels but free. I'm still interested to see if anybody has tried further partitioning of the hard drive, though...

    Multiple Operating Systems Through Boot Camp

    Apple Support FAQ on Boot Camp says you can only create one Boot Camp Partition. I'm not sure how safe it would be to try to further divide up the Boot Camp partition, but I think it might be possible using the partitioning tools on your windows install disk. Anybody tried it? I think it goes without saying that you should leave your Mac partition alone, though.

    MacWorld 2009

    There's nothing on Apple's site, yet. How long does it usually take before they post the time-delayed quicktime?
  13. I'm on a 2.4 GHz previous generation black Macbook. I just inserted a DVD, and after spinning for a few seconds the drive stopped dead. No disk icon appeared on the desktop. When I press eject, the eject splash screen flashes on like normal, but nothing happens. System Profiler says under Disk Burning: "No burning device was found. If you are using an external device please make sure that it is connected and powered properly." Disk Utility doesn't show it either, only my hard drive. I booted into Windows Vista using Boot Camp, and Windows can't see it either. This Macbook is only about six months old, never had any issues before. I updated to 10.5.6 last week without any problems. I burned a few DVDs over the weekend, and watched a movie just yesterday. In either case there was no sign of any problems. I did have a strange episode earlier tonight where my Macbook mysteriously went to sleep as if it had lost power, but it was plugged into the AC adapter at the time. I had to do a hard reboot in order to revive the machine. Anybody have any ideas as to what's going on? I guess I'm going to have to call Apple after the holidays.

    iMac G5 Design

    I was watching some old Macworld keynotes (I guess the upcoming final keynote has me a little nostalgic), and I was thinking about the introduction of the iMac G4. Steve Jobs made an argument (that seemed pretty compelling at the time) against puting the computer components behind the iMac's monitor--the very design that ended up replacing the G4 only two and a half years later, and has undergone no fundemental design change since. Do you remember your initial reaction to the iMac G5's design? Did this reversal strike anyone as much as it did me? What about Steve's arguments about drive performance, was that just RDF?
