    iPod touch

    Well. No one has a review up so far for the new iPod, so I thought I'd let everyone know my thoughts on it. First off its a lot thinner than i ever thought. Half the size of the 4th gen ipod. The screen is amazing and movies and contrast are exelent. I guess i lucked out, but i hear that the update for it solves any problems relating to that. As an ipod the controls are very nice. Great response to touch, and i love just playing with cover flow. My picture look better than they do on my MBP! And as long as you have a good wi-fi connection, internet browsing is outstanding. I love not having to lug my laptop around when i just need to check my mail or game scores. To me, it was worth the $450. 16 gb is just perfect to hold all my music, several photos, and two full movies. The only problem I had was the playback. It has trouble playing mp3s for some reason, but after I converted everything over to m4p, I've not had any problems. On, and I wrote all on this from on my iPod. Hehe...

    Mighty Mouse won't scroll...

    I've had this Mighty Mouse for almost a year now and never had any problems... But last week it stopped scrolling down. It sill goes up, left, and right, but not down... How can that really be? Isn't it just one sensor in there? Is there a way I can clean it out by taking it apart? Anyone know how to do that? Thanx!

    LCD monitor with a MBP

    Ok, so I was looking at getting a 20" monitor for my MBP. The monitor resolution is 1650x1024 and my laptop is only 1440x900... Can I mirror it or only use the LCD monitor at it's resolution? I just need more desk space and don't want to have my MBP on my desk or use it as a dual monitor. Thanx!

    Video Capture for iSight?

    Ok, so who all saw I Am Legend? He uses his MacBook Pro to record a video journal, is this possible or just a movie effect? If it is possible, how can you do it?

    iPod Touch Album Art

    Ok, in iTunes on my laptop all of the album art is there. On my iPod, in cover flow all of the art is there. But when I go back to the normal view of an album I find that only the first song in many albums actually have artwork. It just displays a big question mark. I keep going back and selecting all of the songs in an album in iTunes and changing the artwork on all songs... But it still does the same thing.. Anyone else know a hit that I can do?

    iPod touch

    I showed mine to a classmate of mine who is all about PCs and hates using Macs / Apple. He loved it, he kept saying over and over how cool it was. After he played with it for about 30min, he told me he was going to go buy one! He was amazed at all of the little things it could do!

    How to Convert Video to work on iPod touch

    Well... That's going to be a hard one. AVI is a windows file type, Macs can't read them unless they have a plug-in like VLC. I have an iPod touch as well and it'll only use videos in H.264. You can either use Instant Handbreak if you're using a mac, or try PQ-DVD if you have a PC. Both will convert from a DVD to H.264 fairly quickly. As to converting AVI to H.264, I have no clue... Sorry.

    CD stuck in Macbook Drive

    If you have Toast, you can eject it that way... It's happened to me several times before...

    iPod touch

    The only lines that I could draw between all of the song are that they were just really old converted mp3s... I know they were 96kbs, so maybe that was it. Because the songs that were in the 200-300kbs range were absolutely fine. And the m4p songs at 128 were fine... So mabe that's just it...

    Adobe Reader 8

    It's not the downloading and reading them, it's an online source that I'm looking at and need it so Safari can open pdf files. You guys know where I can download vers 6 or 7?

    iPod Touch Add-ons

    You guys think that they'll have widgets that you can download for this? I mean they have rooom on the main screen for more... I'd really like to see Text Editor on there or Stickies... Something to take quick notes with you know...
