I just stated using Omniweb 5.5 yesterday.
While installing OpenOffice today I decided to actually register it and I came across this in the registration form; I thought it was mildly amusing.
Last night I went to copy a CD for Jenny and my laptop gave me a very
“Your hard drive has reported an error that Mac OS X cannot recover
from. If this drive has not failed completely back up as much data as
you can.” the next few minutes were filled with a slow torture or
intermittent clicking noises emanating from my laptop during its
I managed to back up some of my files, but little things like ALL of
my bookmarks, contacts, email, web projects, music… (the list goes
on and on) have all been lost. My last back up is about 3 months old.
So, please send my your contact info and any bookmarks and links to
files / programs that I might find useful. And learn from my pain;
back up regularly.
This is a couple of weeks old but a friend of mine has brought it up several times and I just wanted to post a link to the video of the making of the photo of the fake iPod with the virtual click wheel. How’s that for a string of nonsense?
Anyway,it would be really cool if Apple did come out with this, but I’m not holding my breath.
This has been floating around for some time now, and I just haven’t had time to point it out here.
What if M$ were to have designed the packaging for the iPod?
I have been anxiously watching the hackers trying to get OS-X running on non apple hardware, and I was excited to see the video of OS-X booting on a thinkpad.
But now that I have seen the LG Xnote TX I don’t really care about any other hardware. This is quite possibly the coolest ultra-portable laptop ever! And I have to get one that runs OS X.
I was reading this article on MacDevCenter about tweaking iTunes and they pointed to possibly one of the coolest music plug-ins for iTunes.
CoverFlow is completely amazing. The video on their home-page is exactly what it does, and it does it beautifully!
As their site says:
Don’t know about you, but I find browsing a list of album names somewhat uninspiring, to say the least. One of the big attractions of a physical album is the beautiful packaging and aesthetic appeal, something that’s sorely missed with the digital equivalent.
CoverFlow aims to bring that aesthetic appeal to your mp3 collection. It allows you to browse your albums complete with beautiful artwork pulled from any sources it can find, whether that’s buried in your song tags, collected via Synergy, or looked up on Amazon.
CoverFlow is far better seen than described, so you might like to take a look at it in motion:
And just so you don’t get too excited about it before it’s time: Mac OS-X 10.4 or higher only.
