    UK iPhone, first thoughts!

    Firstly wow!!! The iPhone is great we sure have been missing out over here! 1. Not missing 3g yet EDGE is fine and GPRS isn't too bad either. 2. Where is iTunes ringtones support for us UK peeps, iToner is great but i just wanna try iTunes. 3. Only problem with docking the iphone to charge/sync is i have to turn off my speakers otherwise i can that weird interference noise, if i was really bothered i could turn the iPhone's airplane mode on but then i wouldn't get texts or calls!! 4. No video recording support (maybe a software update???). 5. No bluetooth file sharing, i understand you wouldn't be able to share songs, but pics maybe.

    Final Cut Express HD

    Hey, im a semi-pro film maker on a low budget. I have recently switched to the mac not just for its multimedia apps though! I was wandering if Final cut express hd is worth the money? iMovie is pretty gud but i think i need something a little better. Final cut studio is a no, mainly cuz of the price but also i think its too professional right now for me! Im looking for power but also ease of use! If any of you guys own Final cut express and are willing to give a little review that would be great.
  17. Hey im new to the mac and need to know. How do you just deleate 1 item from the trash, instead of the emptying it? Thanks guys Miles

  19. Hey As with alot of you guys i have a widescreen iMac. In iPhoto 6 it allows full screen editing, this is great but... I dunno if its just my camera but it dont take widescreen images. This means there are large black line on the left and right of the screen. Is there a way for iPhoto to get these images to fill the screen, just like it does with full screen slideshows! Thanks Miles

    Dashcode! Any Good?

    I just downloaded the public beta version of Dashcode and its great! Even if your a noob, you can still make great widgets. If your a pro programmer you can still use the coding view! What does everyone else think?
  25. I have been using pc's for around 15 years 5 of them studying IT at University and 9 living and working in the IT world. I grew very attached to my 5 or 6 machines and know windows inside out. So about 3 years ago i purchased and iPod and was amazed by its simplicity and ease of use. I still think today iTunes is the only good software that runs on a PC. Anyway after getting through the ipod 4th gen, ipod photo and onto the video i started to like apple and often found myself looking into there other products, evantually i decided i was going to get a mac. So last weekend i marched into my local apple store and bought a 20 inch iMac. Apple's customer service was great and setting the mac up was weird because it just seemed to easy. As the week went on i began to learn all my computers skill over again. But this time instead of it taking 5 years it took more like 5 days. The mac is just incredible, i was installing some software the other day and as a typical PC guy i was looking around for some sort of setup file to install it. When i found out all i had to do was drag that one file into the apps folders, i freaked out, it was soo easy and just aww wow. I installed windows xp yesterday using bootcamp, after the first 5 mins of using it i relaised how s**t windows is. It even crashed on me...twice, Mac OSX has never done that. So yeah, i just cant belive what ive been missing out on and the only machine i will be installing windows vista on is my shredder!!!
