    iPhone dock line out

    There may be some newer docks coming out with video, but the dock that came with my phone is audio only. I tried to buy one of the expensive apple av iPhone / iPod touch cable sets, but the Apple retail store didn't have any yet. it was unknown whether it might work with the equally ($59.99) expensive Monster Cable iPod connector to av iTV link, so I bought one to try, went outside to open up the package, came back to the store and tried hooking it to one of the macTV TVs with my iPhone, but it did not seem to work, so I went back out to repackage the cable and subsequently returned them on the spot.

    Let me see your Mac!

    Stewart Copleand, famous for being the drummer for The Police, and all around amazing musician/composer was at the Hollywood, CA Guitar Center for an autograph signing last Thursday. Being one of my heroes, I asked if he would sign my notebook. His answer was "Sure!", one of his cohorts remarked, "Ohhh...a *real* notebook" .

    who got one?

    Yup. I took the plunge. Actually I didn't intend to, but got two because I stood in the local AT&T line and missed out on the 8gb model (not to mention feeling dirty for not being at an Apple store), so I said yeah whatever and took a 4gb just to get one in my hands. Later that night, towards midnight, I trekked to the Apple store at UTC San Diego and it was like, do you have the 8gb model, and they were like, no problem... So... do I make peace with my wife and try and let her have the other one?

    OS X mobile vs. windows mobile

    Has anyone mentioned to Microsoft that Windows Mobile doesn't even use any windows? Why do they call it that? Maybe 'Window' Mobile or just, well...nevermind. I got nothin'.

    Lapotop battery replacement shiiping observation

    I received my 12" powerbook battery replacement in 13 days. (Submitted Aug 24, 2006). Today I received *another* battery. Maybe I should check the serial number on the first replacement to see if that is recalled too. . If not, Apple (or the repair center it came from) is being extra nice.

    wireless mighty mouse

    So I went out to an apple store yesterday by 5pm hoping to grab one before they're gone and find out 'that was just announced today'. Gee. They predict they would be in the store by Friday (7/28) or Monday (7/31).

    wireless mighty mouse

    I feel like a retard. Of course as soon as I heard the news, I jumped online to find where I could buy one. There are two Apple stores in San Diego, but my job is not near either of them so I pulled up CompUSA.com and I got all excited about ordering one for pick-up during lunch....Well I got back and opened it up, and ... it was missing something ... like a scroll ball. Because the price was close to Apple's ($65 vs $69) I thought I was saving money to boot, but alas I bought the old bluetooth non-mighty mouse. What an idiot. It's going back of course, and I'm off to the Apple store. I have been using a wired mighty-mouse ever since I bought a G5 iSight iMac and I've been pretty satisfied with it. The ball sticks occasionally and it can produce a few confused right vs. left clicks, but overall I'm used to it and find myself phantom right clicking on my other no-button mouse, so at least now I can feel at home on both.
  10. Alex and Kevin and the crew were in town to shoot Diggnation last night at the La Jolla Brew House. The 'event' coinsided with the annual Comic-Con. (How anyone was able to get a room in all of San Diego is a mystery I grabbed a few pixelated moments here: www.flickr.com/photos/stevievep In other / semi-related news...Kevin Smith of CLerKs fame is here too and will be attending and doing live Q&A after the evening screenings of Clerks II at the Mission Valley UltraStar Cinemas today (Sat. 7/22) according to the 91X radio interview with Chris Cantore. -Stephen Vep

    Stickam.com Flash based video chat & stuff

    Ok. Yes. It was pretty simple. Almost foolish. By ctrl-clicking the video window, you get some options. It may be an 'advanced' button or something, I forget. Then...click on the webcam icon and I selected USB Video something or other, and bang - zoom...no problem.
