Re: Audio Recording on iThings

I posted Stephen's question (above) to Dr. Peter Randlette, head of the audio production lab at Evergreen State. Here is his reply: "In regards to mics for mobile devices, I think something more along the lines of http://www.bluemic.com/mikeyforipod/#/desc/ is a better choice for iwhatevers. The mai...

Re: Movie Recommendation: The Pixar Story

When Pixar was getting off the ground it was virtually impossible. Then came NeXT so mainframes were no longer needed. With due deference to my esteemed colleague, I think this statement is WAY over the mark. NeXT was not the "big thing" that made mainframes no longer necessary. I think that role w...

Re: Birds give thumbs up to iBird Explorer Plus

I don't know how you get the pictures but iBird has a specific link to use in uploading your images to the application developers.

Re: Apple TV

We just watched our first Netflix content on Apple TV on a new 32" flat-screen TV. My impression is that the look and sound are better than on a MacBook Pro or a 27" iMac. First of all, there was no rebufffering. We just started watching and it just kept going. With the MacBook Pro, which is what I...

Re: Hotmail to Apple Mail

Richard's request for a snapshot of your Mail's sidebar brings up another Mac thing that you might not have yet encountered. The usual way to take a screen shot is to do "Command-Shift-3" after which you will hear a clicking sound and an item named Screenshot 1 (or something like that) will appear o...

Re: Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs -- Highly Recommended

One thing about this presentation, not surprisingly, is that it will appear differently to different folks. Work conditions in China will strike many as the most compelling social and economic dilemma for Americans. So I don't mean to sound like a Philistine, but equally half of the show is devoted ...

More on the Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs

Last night I saw the one-man play "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs" at the Seattle Repertory Theatre and have to tell you that this performance will be immensely appreciated by a large number of our members. The show is an unbroken monologue by Mike Daisey who truly must be seen to be believ...

Re: Mac Book Pro suddenly won't communicate with printer

I would think that you do not want to use old drivers, old software, old disks from this printer. Macs are pretty all inclusive about support for older printers up until the point where they just simply don't work any more. And that can happen. But it sounds from what you're reporting as if the driv...
