The AppleTV Remote all but slays me when I have to enter text information. But, with the Apple Remote for the iPhone and iPod Touch, when a screen requireing keyboard entry appears on the AppleTV, the tiny little QWERTY keyboard appears on Apple Remote application. Input is real time. Nice!
Here is a good article at the iPod Lounge for Mac users who are interested in ripping your legally owned DVDs so you can watch them on your iPod. (They also give info for Windows users.) The article includes settings and information related to format. Handbrake, a great little application which I’ve used many times, […]
If it’s true, the dude is out of touch with today’s (virtual) reality! In a daring bid to wrench attention from his Democratic rival in the 2008 presidential race, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) today embarked on an historic first-ever visit to the Internet. Given that the Arizona Republican had never logged onto the Internet before, […]

You can also print your own special messages inside those bite-sized Dove chocolate foils! Personalize your chocolate experiences! Here is the link.
But fun!! Naturally I downloaded it! The motion sensor in the Mac, which is used to shut down the hard drive before the machine falls to the floor, saving the hard drive data, is used to have some fun.
for an old dog. I just learned that if you click on the [control] key when you scroll the tiny mouse ball on the top center of the Apple Mouse, you can zoom the screen in and out. Handy! Very handy!
