    International iPhone prices

    EDIT: I made this post about the norwegian prices for the iPhone, but I'd rather make it a collection post for all international prices. Please keep it tidy and in USD. Thanks This will just be a direct currency conversion with todays current. Three subscription plans, iTalk small, medium and large. Small: 100 Minutes 100 SMS 100 MB of data $78.99 a month $275 for 8GB $452 for 16GB Medium 250 Minutes 250 SMS 250 MB of data $138 a month $136 for 8GB $314 for 16GB Large 1000 Minutes 1000 SMS 1000 MB of data $217 a month $176 for 8GB $0.19 for 16GB Use over the prepaid amount: Call to same operator: $0.07 minute, Some other carriers: $0.19, Others: $0.26, SMS $0.13, 1 MB of data: $1.97 So there you have it. I'm really really disappointed. Not so much about the price, but the data. I was really hoping for either free data on all plans or separate phone and data plans. The big jaw dropper here is the whopping $1.97 for 1MB of data, if you go over the prepaid amount. Worth mentioning is "Free Wlan". Our carrier, NetCom, has something called HomeRun, which is Wlan hot spots, however, there's not many of them, and only in selected cafes and hotels.

    Good USB headset for podcasts?

    I'd go for the Plantronics 650 myself. http://www.amazon.com/Plantronics-Multimed...pd_bxgy_e_img_a

    Spring Cleaning an iMac, whats the best way to do it?

    Sounds like you're looking for Archive and Install. You can read more about that installation method here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1710 Make sure you have a backup of all your important data. (Music, photos, mail etc)

    iMac G5 long in the tooth

    A fresh install might help a little bit. Even though OS X doesn't have same register problems that Windows have, stuff do get thrown all over the place, and after a while it will make your machine slow. Being low on disk space will also make OS X slow, but 15GB should be enough. Other than updating the whole machine, the only thing I can think of that's pretty easy is a fresh install. Make sure you have a good backup, don't make a full bootable backup and restore that, as it will make the "fresh" thing disappear. Get all of the music and photos etc over to an external backup and just copy those files back when you're done. Be careful when it comes to mail. If you've used Mail.app (or any other mail app for that matter) and POP, all of your mail is stored on the disk, and not on a server, so make sure to have a backup of that, if POP is the case.

    How do I trancfer the data?

    You can probably use the external backup without any problems. Just make sure it's a bootable full backup, and the mac you get from the store should be able to boot from that drive. http://tinyurl.com/dfyefx

    Keeping my iMac cool

    No CPU should go that hot, no matter what. Since your iMac is from sometime in 2008 (it is, right?) you should contact Apple today and see what they say. A temp that high will start to fry your CPU, resulting in a spectacular crash in the not so distant future.

    New to iPod touch

    Some information about what you're looking for, and how you plan on using your new Touch would go a long way to help you find some awesome apps.

    Keeping my iMac cool

    What will get up to almost 200? The CPU? In any case, it's not good. If it's still under warranty, I'd give apple a call.

    Monitoring local network traffic

    No reason to wait, you can't really do anything wrong by trying.

    Monitoring local network traffic

    Oh, right. I misunderstood you there. Well, if you change to tcpdump -v -i lo0 you'll get the tcpdump of loopback I believe. I'm no programmer, but I'd think it depends on the programming. If it's set to use loopback or go to the router and back in again, then it would go in and out on the same interface.

    Monitoring local network traffic

    Well, you could always do a tcpdump in the terminal For ethernet it would probably be tcpdump -v -i en0 and for the wireless card tcpdump -v -i en1 A word of warning; It aint pretty. The output will look something like this Macintosh:~ kjes$ tcpdump -v -i en1 tcpdump: listening on en1, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes 16:01:56.708022 IP (tos 0x10, ttl 64, id 63565, offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 164) > P 931366934:931367046(112) ack 552970500 win 1253 <nop,nop,timestamp 813821 163848847> 16:01:56.708120 IP (tos 0x10, ttl 64, id 5076, offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 52) > ., cksum 0x5233 (correct), ack 112 win 65535 <nop,nop,timestamp 163848857 813821> 16:01:57.660803 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 65157, offset 0, flags [none], proto UDP (17), length 67) > 57015+ PTR?

    Encrypting Time Machine backup

    I used to use FileVault (the encryption technology built in to OS X), and use Carbon Copy Cloner to backup my laptop. But something kept bothering me, I couldn't understand how I could get a proper backup of my drive while logged in to the machine, knowing what I know about how (whole-disk) encryption works, so I checked the CCC website, and found my suspicions to be correct: http://www.bombich.com/software/docs/CCCHe...l?page=overview It's worth noting that this will probably be an issue with other means of whole-disk encryption, as well as FileVault, as I belive they all use pretty much the same methods for encrypting the disk.

    The demo video doesn't work for me, so I can't see if this is what you need, but it's worth looking at. http://coderage-software.com/zooom/ Hope it helps

    iMacs and dual external displays

    Shouldn't be a problem with a Matrox DualHead2Go on there. http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/products/gxm/dh2go/ It can run 2 x 1920 x 1200, in other words two 24" displays. Make sure to get the digital edition.

    ScreenCasting Software

    I don't have any free ones to recommend, but ScreenFlow and Snapz Pro seems to be the ones that's highest recommended around the web, by Don McAllister and Alex Lindsay among others.

    MacBook unibody - no Firewire

    Guess it's different in the US. ;-) Back on topic...

    Hard Disk specs for iMac G5 w/ iSight needed!

    Make that an 3.5" SATA and your right. Any SATA drive would be fine, as far as I know.

    MacBook unibody - no Firewire

    Well, they do and it's called the 1 series, as do Apple, and that would be the Mac Mini. The only thing Apple does not offer in my opinion is a mid-range tower pc for those who have a keyboard, mouse and screen from before and only want to put a "grey box" mac next to it. One that they can also easily change the HD in, add more RAM and swap out the video card... However, that's not something Apple have ever offered, nor ever will. Perhaps they'll redesign the Mini so you can put in more RAM, maybe even change the disk, but I doubt you'll get much more than that. It would simply be to un-Apple like.

    Safari 4

    As I wrote in my post further up I need my extensions, so after going back for FireFox 3.0.6, I installed FireFox 3.1b2. First impressions here http://kjeserud.wordpress.com/2009/02/25/firefox-31b2/ for those who rely on extensions in FireFox.

    Safari 4

    It looks awesome, but without AdBlock, FlashBlock and Googlepedia (especially Googlepedia) I won't be switching from FireFox anytime soon.

    Problem with External HDs

    Since you're talking about back-ups, have you tried using something like Carbon Copy Cloner to do a backup to one of the trouble disks? What file systems does the disks have?
