    G4 Powerbook 12"

    i have a 12inch ibook. and its great for the tasks stated. it lacks when it comes to things that require a large amount of resolution. the best part is the laptop is the same size as some text books.

    logitech g5 hardware issue

    i have a logitech g5 gaming mouse which isn't supported by osx with any drivers from logitech. no big deal. usb overdrive fixes these issues. however. i just reloaded my machine over itsself and after i cannot use 2 buttons on the mouse to change the speed of which it tracks. it has a + and - button on the mouse to change the DPI. from 400 to 800 to 2000 and these buttons don't make the DPI change. they work with other mac's. Where can i delete or change some settings to get back my speed. changing the speed in usb overdrive isn't enought. the DPI is really where it count. any help would be appreciated.

    Wallet vs 1PassWD

    i just bought wallet, and i don't use the auto form feature. but the features of 1passwd look very good. i'm trying out 1passwd trial right now. wow i'm amazed on how awesome 1passwd is. i wish i researched this topic a bit better. they had this on the maccast 2-3 shows ago. but i don't think 1passwd was listed. the downside to Wallet is the lack of firefox auto form feature. it only works with safari. i'm a firefox fan myself.

    Comparing Headphones

    now now now, the bose quiet comfort 2 have been the greatest ever. i use them extensively for metal fabrication ie welding, grinding and for running. These have been rock solid for many projects i've created. i beat the living crap out of these. the coard is constantly yanked, pinched, smashed. The QC2 have a detachable coard, so nothing happens to them during the event they get snagged on something i'm walking around. I used the Bose TriPorts before these and the coard would get snagged up on everything i was working on. and it eventually broke. Btw, with these sets i've heard parts of songs i didn't know exisited. ie echo's of lyrics etc. lemme tell you how the Bose Warranty works. I broke a pair of QC2's after about 8 months of duty in my shop. they were making bad noises from the acoustic part that tries to muffle sounds. so i called their warranty and i was kinda afraid to tell them what happened. Well they said no problem, we will replace them. No questions asked, next week brand new set at my door. I even told the gentlemen on the phone what i used them for, he said thats what their made for. If this were many other companies they would have told me NO WAY. So yah they have a 300$ price tag, but it sure does go a long ways. i used the Apple inear phones and i hated them, they kept slipping out of my ear. i returned them for the Bose and i have never ever looked back. After the Bose i've never even used the earbuds, music needs definition and bass.
