    iTunes Sharing

    Sometimes, when I try to connect to my iTunes library via sharing it does not work. When I click on it, it hangs for a while, then comes up with this error: I have searched through System Preferences and firewall settings, but I can't find the problem. Admittedly, I'm not too familiar with how firewalls and networks work. However, this problem only happens some of the time. Occasionally, iTunes sharing will work just fine without any hiccups at all. On another, perhaps related, note, the Remote app on my iPod Touch can't connect to any of my iTunes libraries on any of my computers. It tries to connect, but just times out. If it's relevant, my two computers are running Tiger and Leopard. Both are running the same version of iTunes. If anyone can help with either of these problems, it would be MUCH appreciated. Thanks!

    Yeah, a bunch of people that are waiting are considering just buying a Windows tablet. But the whole point for me is to have a Mac. I've considered a Cintiq too, but another factor for me is portability. Even the new Cintiq 12WX is not the greatest solution for artists on the go, because of all the cables.

    On the last maccast, Adam made a few comments about Axiotron's Modbook. I don't know if any of you are aware, but Axiotron and OWC have been really messing things up on their end. First, it took a whole year for Axiotron to officially start shipping the product. During that year, they upgraded the specs and worked with Apple to make it an Apple-certified product, so customers took the delays patiently. But the delays continue to plague them - Axiotron started shipping out their backorders, but to this day, they have only made it to the orders they received LAST February. Reports of people actually receiving one are very scarce. On top of it all, Axiotron is slow to respond to questions or notify customers of news. Needless to say, we are all getting a bit cranky. The only thing that seems to be keeping them afloat is the fact that they have a GREAT product, and many people are willing to wait. But a few people I've heard of have cancelled their orders, and if Axiotron doesn't get their act straight, I'm sure more will follow. They report that they will catch up with all their current orders by March 21, but at this point nobody really believes them because they've heard this time and time and again - for over a year. The most frustrating thing of all is that Axiotron doesn't seem to be getting any bad press. Sites like Endgadget and Slashgear shout their praises for the Modbook, but fail to mention any news of the issues plaguing their customers who are still waiting. As a working artist, I love the idea of their product and want them to succeed. I just think that if maybe the world new about these issues, it would influence Axiotron to kick themselves into gear and start shipping their Modbooks and deal with their customers a little better. It's been a very bizarre experience to have this happening with an Apple product, as most Apple software, hardware, and accessory vendors have met and exceeded expectations on this front. Any of you agree? Has anyone heard of people receiving their Modbooks? Adam, you think you could make a mention of this on the show?

    Mail Problems

    Every night at 11:00, Mail shuts down automatically. I can't figure out why this is happening. On top of it, my entire computer noticeably slows down when it happens. I thought it might have something to do with an application I had -- VacuumMail -- which I was using for awhile, but I have since uninstalled it and the problem still persists. Anyone have any insight? Thanks in advance....

    ElGato EyeTV recording

    EyeTV, using TitanTV program guide, has a search box that lets you search for shows based on keywords. Does anyone know if there is a way to save these searches so you can be alerted to something that might show up in the future? Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me.
