    What is the best vintage mac ever made?

    My favorite was always the Mac SE/30. It still had the small, all in one form factor but was reasonably fast (for the day).

    I need cash, so I'm dropping the price to $50 shipped. I'm sure there's someone out there who could use this!

    Artwork for videos

    Apple makes it difficult to grab the higher resolution versions of its artwork. There was a website that allowed you to do it, but Apple has since changed the way the iTunes site works, so the other website no longer works. I prefer to use the actual movie posters for films that I rip. A great source for these is: http://www.impawards.com/ The other choice is to grab DVD covers from Amazon or other stores that sell DVDs.

    Movie Artwork Freezing

    If car1son's suggestion doesn't work (although I think he may be right), then take a look at the file sizes of those movies that you're having problems adding artwork to. If I remember correctly, there's some limit to the size a movie file can be. It's possible you're pushing it over that size by adding artwork.

    Video out on iPhone 3G

    I bought the Apple composite video out cable and it works great with my 2nd gen iPod touch running 2.1.1. I've heard that some of the third party video out cables are shakey at best, so I'm going to bet that's the problem. I know the Apple cables cost an arm and a leg, but in this case I think they're worth it. One nice thing about the Apple set is that it includes an external power adapter.

    USB hubs

    Ditto for one of those Kensington 7-port Dome hubs. It has always worked just fine. I like it because it has one port on top of the dome for quickly attaching a device like a flash drive.

    OEM memory

    Another vote for Data Memory Systems or Other World Computing. I've used them many times and never had a problem. I've been using Macs since 1985 and have never purchased extra RAM direct from Apple and I've never had a problem.

    iPhone app different computers

    The applications are linked to your iTunes account. You can copy them from one computer to another without a problem. When you wish to install, just make sure you're logged in to iTunes with the account name that you purchased them with.

    ipod touch wifi connection problems

    Yes, there are problems with the wifi in the new touch. I had to turn off WPA encryption on my router to get my new touch to work reliably on my home network. Also, I usually have to toggle the touch's wifi on and off a few times before it makes a connection to any network. I guess Apple used a different wifi chip in the new touch and they need to make some software updates to make it work properly. There's a very long thread about this on the Apple discussion forums.

    Elgato Turbo 264

    The Turbo.264 can't rip straight from the DVD. The copy protection needs to be removed first with something like MacTheRipper or Rip It.

    Suggestions for Internet Backup Companies

    I also would recommend Amazon's S3 in conjunction with JungleDisk. The price per month is very reasonable. JungleDisk costs $20 and there are clients for Mac, Windows and Linux. You can use any of the clients anytime, so you can access your backups from just about anywhere. JungleDisk makes it easy to setup automated backups, and of course you can copy by drag and drop also. I use a combination of both.
