    UK broadband?

    I use bulldog, i get a 8meg/sec unlimited service and is costing me 20 pounds including my phone line rental this will go up to 40 after my first 6 months, however yesterday they invited me to do a ASDL2+ plus trial for my current rate and this should give me anything up to 20meg/sec. which i cant wait for. In the last five month my service has only been down for around two hours.

    Video editing on a macmini

    It was combination of imovie and some final cut express, i actual felt that working in express felt more reponsive than imovie, although it obviously a more complicated program. Having said this i wouldnt like to have to do large projects, as the importing and exporting processes take forever. Too add into the mix at university they used a mixture of machines for final cut pro work, the slowest machines they use are dual 1ghz G4 with a gig of ram and they function quite well, they are decated to final cut work only and run very few other applications.

    Video editing on a macmini

    i have to 1.4ghz mac mini i got it with 512mg of ram, i found editing slow on it at best so i took it to 1gb and it does seam much more snappy when editing video, i say stick as much in as you can afford, i had to waste a stick of ram by not. the other thing that you need to think about is the realtively slow and small hdd in the mini it much better to edit using a external firewire drive for you project

    Performance of new iMac vs. old?

    The point i'd like to add is that if apple went AMD they would have to also find a chipset and motherboard manufacture. Where as apple got a total package from Intel. Thus making life far simpler in terms of supply.

    the DIY PC...

    i have to say buying a 754 is a mistake as AMD have already released early details of the M2 socket so that make the 754 already quite old technology, 939 is worth the cost for future proofing

    What Phone Should I Get?

    I’ve had my V3 Razr on a UK contract since September and I still love its looks it just a shame as soon as I touch a button it all goes horribly wrong, a problem seeing as I cant upgrade it for another 9 months, its short on features and it has bad software, notably the SMS application, I would describe it as a Intel imac running XP!!!

    Wet iBook AC adapter

    Not completely related, I had a phone fall in to the bath, an old nokia 3210. It vibrated of the edge and got a complete dunking. I fished it out and rip the battery apart as fast as I could and left it in on top of our boiler for a few day and it worked fine and still does to this day, so it needn’t be trash yet. However I would suggest great caution with main voltage.

    Your choice for image management.

    I use a combination, iPhoto is my catalogue and Photoshop as my editor, the adjustments in iPhoto just are not enough, having used aperture I have to say everything just seams to take so long, I used it on top end system and I seamed to spend more time with the spin beach ball that actually my editing my images, not great for the quantity of image i work with. I have to say i won’t be changing my work flow for now.
