For the PC I have a suite of conversion programs by ImToo and Xilisoft which is basically a suite of programs to convert many media types any way you want such as mp4 to wmv, avi to wmv, wmv to avi, mp3 to others, etc. Basically you can convert any video or audio program between many formats. I'm not as concerned with picture formats since I think I can change these in Adobe PhotoShop and mostly just use jpg anyway. These programs will also convert video to be uploaded...
I see how .mac can sync bookmarks, ical, address book, and mail. Can it as well sync your documents folder? I'm not concerned about videos, music, and pictures since I don't update them often but I'm always on the go or at home updating documents and would like if they could be synced through .mac. If not, is there another good solution for the mac to sync documents?
I am thinking of getting a .mac account but I see how it syncs bookmarks for Safari but I'm thinking of switching to Firefox. If I do will it sync these bookmarks as well? Actually my perfect world would probably be to have both browsers side by side in case one works better in some cases and as well bookmarks synced between the two browsers. Can that be done?
I got my MBP today and it's sure a big change for Windows, all for the better! Honestly after I started using it I barely even touched my Windows laptop anymore. I'm not sure which web browser I'll use. I used Safari a lot and just tried Firefox. What I like about Firefox is the tabbed browsing and no pop-ups. Maybe I'm missing something in Safari but I haven't used tabbed browsing and most of all ,I'm getting a lot of popups. Is there a way to avoid them? As well,...
I earlier research being able to import data from Microsoft's Outlook 2003 for Windows XP into Entourage 2004 for Mac. I now plan to use the built in applications, ical, contacts, mail, etc. Is there a way of importing data into these? If necessary can I export to Outlook 2003 again?
I'm going to be following this closely because of the isight camera. I'm going to be purchasing a Mac Pro likely within the Jan-April timeframe next year. I want a camera for it and won't be going with Apple's own monitors. I'm almost tempted to just purchase a isight now but then again maybe there will be some type of update to the isight. In a worse case I assume there are some 3rd party cams that work with the mac.
I am getting a MBP on Tuesday and am relatively new to the Mac other than a imac that my son just bought a couple months ago so have a question. On my Windows XP machine I have of course a my documents, my music, my pictures, and my video folder as well as my outlook (email, contact, calendar) data. The way I have it set up now is I have two profiles, one a away one for on trips, at meetings, etc. and the other a home profile (two login profiles). I have a main computer...
Is it possible to make them auto logon so I don't have to login with password each time I restart the computer?
I have my new C2D MBP on order and am a switcher from Windows XP and am wondering if there's any must have software out there, software that many mac users have. I know with Windows there are a few like this. Of course I know the mac has more built in programs and is easier to use so I likely won't need as many programs to buy. I am undecided if I'll go with Safari for web browsing or Firefox. As well, for PIM use I'm not sure if I'll use Entourage or ical/address...
Same here. I ordered my MBP and did see something about up to $100 off on a printer with certain mac purchases but never saw anything more about this. As well, I saw I can get .mac for $70 or something like that but yet don't see how I can go about doing that. Did anyone else get that?
