  • WATCH OUT! If your hard drive is making noises, this is indicative of a harware failure inside the hard drive. Further use of the HD could cause damage that will make rescuing your data impossible. My TiBook HD recently failed and I checked X…
  • Thanks, but Broadcaster is part of Quicktime Streaming Server. After using QTSS (Quicktime Streaming Server) I've got a few comments: 1) It's not too clear how to tune in to a stream. I was able to find that streams are located on port 554. …
  • Yes, I'm aware of the "sharing" feature in iTunes, but that's not quite what I'm looking for. I want to broadcast from one computer and have the other computer be playing the exact same thing and the exact same time. After doing a bit of investi…
  • While the iSight is deep, I think much of that depth is due to the electronics inside. If the iSight was built-in, they could place the electronics of the camera elsewhere and have a shorter depth for the lens part. Alternatively, they could tak…
  • Quote: (4) is incorrect. You only need to hold the mouse down for a second and then the menu will pop-up. I'm not sure there is a way of writing a dock-based app so that it could put up a menu instantly, but I haven't studied the APIs in great deta…
  • Thanks for the tip on the folder in the dock. I tried that solution back when 10.2 debuted. It had several severe drawbacks: 1) Inconsistent Positioning I didn't like having my application launcher at some seemingly random point in the dock (a…
  • Upon further examination, neither Yadal nor DockLauncher are really what I'm looking for. They're practically identical. I'm not interested in TigerLaunch, because it doesn't live in the Dock. Does anyone know of an application launcher that show…
  • I bit on the GHz powerbook and I'm extremely happy with it. While a 17" screen would be an absolute boon to me, the new Powerbook is out of my price range. Beyond price, I don't think the 17" Powerbook is nearly as nice a design as the TiBook.…
  • I'd be astounded if there were any updates to the PB line in January. They'd have to clear the channel of the current inventory, which just arrived. Not very likely. If you're outside New York, I recommend J.U.M.P. Systems for your purchase (ww…
  • With a laptop, certain parts cannot be upgraded. The key is to make sure these parts are as good as you can get. Specifically, this means the processor and video card. The GHz PB has 64MB VRAM, whereas the 867 has 32MB VRAM. The GHz PB has a proc…
  • This really belongs in current hardware. Anyhow, I thought I'd let you know I found a great hot deal on GHz powerbooks, if you live outside New York:
  • Excellent obsevation, TigerWoods. I tried to think of an excuse as to why this would be the case, but none really floats. I thought, perhaps some supplies are constrained (ie flat panels). Even if this were the case, they could still produce al…
  • [quote] The best-selling iMac models have always been that price or higher. The old bottom-of-the-line iMac was basically just a tease. The 'tease' model is extremely important. Most consumer electronics manufacturers have a 'tease' model that g…
  • Suckful, I said the low end WILL be $1300, I didn't say the low end IS $1300. Future tense instead of present tense. Do you think Apple intends to continue selling CRT iMacs? I have read many reports of low supplies. It would appear they are …
  • Apple claims to want in on the 95% of the market they don't posess, but they don't seem to be doing anything to try and win it. With the new iMac their entry level system will run $1300. That's just WAY too much to win any converts. It's as if BM…
  • My first reaction was neither here nor there. When I saw the iMac I didn't cringe and I didn't salivate. The new design is missing some of the little touches that have made me lust after most Apple hardware. I don't think this new iMac will be a …
  • To be fair, JBL isn't even talking about the LiDE 30 and we have no idea what scanner mox is talking about. My purchase of the Canon LiDE 30 is recent--about a month old. The drivers work perfectly. I have had NO PROBLEMS with flakyness or anyt…
  • I have the LiDE 30 and Canon has proper drivers for the scanner. You don't need photoshop to scan, nor will recipients of your scans need photoshop to view them (assuming you save your scans in jpg gif pdf or some file format other than psd). Th…
  • I have a friend who was traveling through France recently. He was shown a Mustek digital camera. Very small. Very cheap. Decent pics.
  • I got the T68i and I thought you might like to know some cool features that aren't really promoted. 1) Multiple phone numbers are tied to one person in your phone book. No longer do you need to generate multiple entries for the same person with …
