  • If you can remake your images, create them as .PNG files instead of .JPG. PNG images preserve their transparency when imported into Flash so there's no white space to delete.
  • dashboard will also be a great boon to porn-viewing at work: one click and you're back in Excel.
  • I recently bought iBank. Its simple enough that you can use it quickly and immediately without treading through a zillion options. It imports QIF files and is smart about categorizing entries. If you want sophisticated financial planning bloatwar…
  • I think its pretty cool and full-featured. Lots of detail and points of interest for all locations. I also believe that it runs pretty well considering the amount of data that has to reflow every time you scroll or zoom in and out. I've run it on…
  • bought a gift certificate today at the Oak Brook, IL store. All that's necessary is the coupon code number for the recipient to plug into their iTunes setup, but it gives you a physical object to hand over to someone.
  • This has been the function of the small independent bookshop for years (right up until the day Walmart and Borders drove em out of business). Publishers put out 40,000 - 60,000 books a year. Stocking Stephen King and Hilary Clinton is a no-brainer…
  • Same here. Ordered Dual G5 with Radeon 9800 and Bluetooth on 6/23. My order moved from 8/29 to 9/2 to 9/23. 9/23 came and went and I got mighty freaked. All the phone operators could tell me was "well, its in manufacturing..." Anyway, I get…
  • There just seems to be something odd and gimmicky about this story. It's not really a smart thing to do. To jump on this now guarantees only a short time in the limelight. Who would responsibly spend such a huge amount (in both money and time) to…
  • I believe the bulk of tower sales will come from business and professional circles. Video post houses and publishing companies will likely order in batches of 20 - 150. Any competently-run business that lays out that kind of expenditure has a proc…
  • Pixlet is meant for content creation. It will never be used for consumer viewing. However, there IS a new high-quality codec for MPEG-4 coming that goes by the very sexy name of H.264. It should give Windows Media 9 and DivX a run for their money…
  • It bothers me that they are adding so little new content to the store that this "exclusive" qualifies as news. There should twenty times this much new activity. When the store launched with 200,000 titles it didn't seem like a problem because I fi…
  • I would imagine the limiting factor in the G5 would be the superdrive. While they are great DVD burners, they aren't the fastest CD-ROM drives around. Even with the fantastic new processor and internal bandwidth, I'd guess you'd max out at about 9…
  • There are some important bits of information about PixLet that I wish they would have bothered to mention: Is it cross-platform (included in Windows QuickTime) or OS X-specific? What are the playback requirements? (I imagine they are fairly steep…
  • The only two "beach ball makers" I had left were Internet Explorer and the Finder. Safari has taken care of IE, let's hope the new Finder is as stable as it is fast.
  • I'm sure the entire lineup is eventually going all-G5, but they didn't sound like they were in a hurry to get there. Apple definitely seemed in a mood to milk the margin off all of us caught in the RDF before going for market share with bottom-line…
