  • Surely a far far simpler solution would be to start your music and then set the screensaver. You can then configure it so you need a password to unlock the screensaver but the music will keep playing while the screensaver is on (won't it?) That's…
  • I've also ripped several CD's with 'copy protection' messages slapped all over them. I just pop them in iTunes and they appear and I rip as normal. I'm yet to come across a CD that can't be ripped this way? Not that I'm complaining of course
  • If you think about it in a 'party' context as well I think it's nice that if someone hears a song they don't recognise and want to know what it is, they can find out if they check the list within a reasonable time fron it being played, before it dro…
  • Yes that's what I meant (I think). Is there a correct input to plug the mac into? Aux , Phono etc..? I remember reading somwere about putting an iPod into a stereo and there seemed to be some important reason to put it into one but not the oth…
  • Well apparantly he's moved the hinge around a bit but isn't sure if it's fixed the problem - difficult because he didn't have it long enough to replicate the problem. I guess I'll find out over the next few days/weeks whether there's any improvem…
  • That's one good thing then. I was paranoid that if the scree cracked or something as a result of the stiff hinge they'd refuse to do it under warranty. Spoken to them this morning and they confirm it isn't normal and suggested that only a minor t…
  • *Gah* - breaking?! Maybe I *will* give Applecare a call then. I need the book for the next few weeks for work but I'll give them a ring when it's calmed down a bit and arrange to get it sent in. I assume your broken hinge wasn't covered? Did y…
  • I have one and it works great! I'm a complete novive though, this is my first midi keyboard and I can't answer all your questions. I'm guessing that the lack of extra knobs 'n stuff is a downside if you're looking to use the keyboard with somethi…
  • Well last night it was so stiff I was scared to wiggle it in case the lcd shattered. By the time I got home I wiggled it a few times but there was no resistence at all so don't suppose it helped.....?
  • Can onyone give me a few more details about the various different types of mic and whether or not a premap is necessary for them? I'm only really familiar with cheap dynamic mics. If I can get a mic for about £30-£40 that could plug directly in with…
  • That looks great but is there any difference between that and the ones I was looking at? (urls above), aside from it having a few more controls and probably a better unit, do they do the same thing?
  • By the way, I've tried a couple of different, cheap mics on both my powerbook and my old iMac and the levels are the same across the board so I don't think there's anything broken anywhere
  • The distortiononly occurs when the gain is turned right up. OK, well it certainly isn't a high quality mic - I'm talking about £9 ($15). Could you give me any advice on what you'd consider a 'decent' mic that I'd be able to plug straight into the…
  • I've tried plugging the mic straight into the line in port (it's got a mini jack plug anyway) and you need to whack the gain *right* up to get anywhere near a decent level which causes horrible distortion. I thought that was the point of the preamp …
  • Haven't had the unevenness (yet?) but I understand it comes and goes so I guess you'll see it again... Where are you then? Really lucky being in Leeds there's an Applecenter just down the road from where I work - comes in handy (although I didn't…
  • I wouldn't worry too much. I'm sure it's unusual for the machine to come back in that state. The marks on the new screen are a little annpoying but not too bad at all. I wouldn't have sent it back if it wasn't for the dent. I was actually pretty ple…
  • Well the good news is that I received my powerbook back yesterday (Thursday). Just 2 days after they picked it up! Unfortunately, although the white spots have gone, I have a few marks on the screen top left and mid-right. I first thought they were …
  • Well as promised, UPS arrived and took my baby away this morning. They actually turned up Friday and yesterday as well, even though I told them noone would be in. I'll let you know how quickly I get ti back cheers
  • So what exactly is the difference in the construction around the screen? I've heard people say it's been 'redesigned' but it what way?
  • Just to give you an update I called the UK number on the Applecare leaflet that came with the powerbook and spoke to a very friendly lady there who was really helpful. They're sending out a courier on Tuesday (they wanted to send one out tomorrow (F…
