Now that Apple has brought out the digital camera adapter, I am certainly considering buying a 60GB iPod. For me the larger iPod allows me either non-lossy compressed music, or large capacity photo storage when I go on vacation, or photo shoots. If your camera is only 3.5MP then that extra room means nothing, but if you are dealing with a camera that is 6MP and up, then it starts to add up. Lowering the price by $20 or providing a special discount on the camera adapter...
I have looked at the CAD software that I know about (AutoCAD, CATIA and Rhinoceros) and none of them are available for the Mac. Does anyone know of any CAD software that works with MacOS X? I am hoping for more than a Classic or X11 application. Also, I would be interested to know if any of the 3D pointing devices, such as the ones from ttp://www.3dconnexion.com/ are able to work with the Mac.
For me what's missing from the iPod photo is a bundled adaptor for transferring photos from you camera straight to the iPod. Granted Apple wants the Mac to be the hub, but when moving around you don't always have a computer at your disposal.
How about AM/FM radio? Europe and elsewhere in the world there are still plenty of people who listen to analogue radio. There are still plenty of people who use the radio to listen to the football (soccer in the USA) matches. Sure there is a very slow move to digital radio, but terrestial radio is still here.
Sounds good. Although you could consider this as costing Apple nothing when compared to the salaries being made, it is always nice to get a freebie, especially when it is more than a simple desk ornament, that simply serves as static advertising. With this freebie you don't feel like you are just getting the what's left of the marketing department's budget One thing that hit me is that when you compare the price of the iPod shuffle to USB memory sticks, it is great...
Well I suppose a five star rating with that disclaimer is fine. After all I don't think any company would list their product as "1 star, because we prefer the competitions's offerings".
The exact is text is: "QuickTime and TIFF (LZW) decompressor are needed to see this picture" As indicated in the referred thread it is not the lack of Quicktime that is the issue, since the systems tested had a full install of Quicktime. Office documents uses embeded data types and basically use what is put in them and it uses OLE to handle those embeds. Quicktime on the Windows side either does not provide an OLE container or fails to support compressed PICTs. I...
Currently in MacOS X up to 10.3.x there is an issue which affects Office. Basically images which where copied from a Cocoa application and pasted into Word, Powerpoint, etc, show up as 'Quicktime needed' images on the PC side - you can read a thread on this issue. What I would like to know is whether any changes have been made in MacOS X Tiger, that mean PICTs on the clipboard are no longer compressed? Thus visible on the PC side in a Word document?
Hmm, this sounds like a good idea, but I would rather the facility offered a list of places to buy from. Had this been Microsoft offering a facility to buy cartridges from the MS Store then everyone would be up in arms, so why should it be any different for Apple?
For those of you not wanting to follow the links: Jabber, which is supported by Fire (amongst others), is yet another instant messenger (IM) solution, but with a difference. Instead of connecting to a single central IM provider, such as Yahoo, MSN or ICQ, each domain can provide their own server, in much the same way as e-mail. Imagine you have a company with an address myco.com, your address would be at myco.com, for example claire@myco.com. If you then want to chat with...
