Does it stream or download?It's streaming, but you have to download a plug-in first. The streaming quality was OK- not great- for the one movie I watched.Hey, who did that? I want names. A shaltered post in a thread... This is totally new territory.

Add-on's time.Anyone have any experience with console-style controllers for mac? I tried to start playing Battlefield 2142 this weekend and realized I will never be terribly facile in the game if I have to use the mouse and keyboard....
Sitting in the mail-room or already on it's way to me is my first Apple computer in 20 years.Would love some advice on software- most of all I want to be able to work with photos fairly intensively (digital darkroom, not graphic design), create/record/edit music, and maybe play a few games.Thoughts?Oh- specs- I broke down and got the iMac with a bunch of goodies.
Get Adobe CS3 it has Photoshop, it's the best program for photo manipulation, I use it at work and at home. Iphoto is great for removing red eye.I hope you ordered additional memory, at least 1 gig more, 2 is prefered
Can anyone explain why my iBook suddenly has much less battery life than it used to? Not sure what is causing the power drain but it's a recent issue and really a hassle.Any insight?
Luddite here again.I don't know if this is the right thread for this, but I have a question: Does anybody have an ipod-filling service? Or sell pre-loaded ipods?I do not have an ipod. I find the barrier to entry to be too much. I want someone to load the cds I have and load a range of other music based upon some broad criteria from me. Does anyone do this? And what would it cost?PG
...Growing up, my public schools were filled with various generations of Apple computers, while at home I had dos, and later Win 95....
Made the switch. So far, so good. Much easier to set up and faster performance.
after reading this thread, seems like the pro-mac people out number the anti. am seriously considering ditching the Dell and going to Mac. Anyone have any bad experiences doing this?
Does anyone have recommendations for Mac repair shops in NJ? I know about Tekserve, but would welcome any suggestions to avoid having to lug my desktop on the PATH.TIA
I highly recommend the apple site for all tech questions about the hardware or software. Follow the support discussions path, and choose some keywords particular to your problem or questions. Someone has probably had the same issues before and there are lots of geeks just waiting for a question that they can answer.Don't forget to do a search in iphoto help. I just looked there and learned some things that I didn't know. It looks to me as though you can create multiple libraries that do not load unless you go looking for them. There is also a rebuild library command that sounds like it will reconcile the thumbs to the actual files.I haven't had the need to do these things myself, as my library is not too large, and I've grown sort of disenchanted with my camera, but I'm intrigued by the multiple library idea.
Ambush, have you put the Library in thumbnail view? You can change the view to show little mini jpegs. Took me a while to figure it out, but hugely helpful...and at 10,000 thumbnails...you really should consider moving some of those puppies off! Unless you've got oodles of disk space, I'd think that's makin' you drag pretty heavy. I only have 1000 and on my g3 oldie, it's definitely a drain.
Yeah, I use iPhoto Library, but it's not as helpful as I'd like, as for some reason iPhoto has kept all the thumbnails. At approaching 10,000 thumbnails, it's still pretty damn slow. I don't think Apple gave enough thought to the memory requirements of the digital photography revolution.Still, thanks for the advice.
This you're right about, their file managment program is pretty bad. I actually think the best one was waaaay back in windose 3.x. Their photo archiving practices and directory structure are similarly insipid. iPhoto has to load every single photo in its library it loads up, which makes no sense, and makes it hang forever when you boot it (at least if you take as many photos as Fang does). I really wish they'd fix that.
Am I the only person alive under 50 yrs old who can't STAND "Take On Me"? I mean, can't STAND it. I don't understand how people even tolerate this song, let alone squeal in delight and twirl around the room like some drunken cheerleader (I've seen it.) I've hated it since I was in like 7th grade when it came out. I hate it then and I think I hate it even more now. It doesn't help that this is one of those ubiquitous songs like "I Will Survive" (which I tolerate only slightly better) and "Blister In The Sun" (which I actually do like) that gets played at every lame party. I haven't heard any of A-ha's other work. You can probably infer as to why that might be.I would like to extend a hearty thanks to Justi for keeping his A-Ha CD close to his chest last Saturday.Oh and I hate the video too.
I'm not crazy about Mac's file management program . . . One of the things I miss about my windoze utility program is being able to make directories and move files in a snap.
That sounds illegal . . . what do I get in return?
I have about a dozen CDs, but (strangely) around 100 empty CD cases. I lose everything I ever buy, except for that pernicious second A-Ha CD that always turns up like a bad penny.
So AmbushBug, the Mrs. just got an iPod and wants music on it. Since you've already gone to the trouble of ripping all your CDs can I come over and just upload all of it from yours? I promise that I will say "thank you" even if the Fang didn't. Cheesy
Take it from the Fang, who had to sit there for something like a full week while I spent every waking moment putting in a CD, ripping it, uploading it to the iPod, deleting the songs from my HD, ejecting the CD, inserting another, ripping it, uploading . . . deleting . . . ejecting . . . inserting . . . If you have a shitload of CDs (as I imagine many of us do) it can take days.Of course, once the Fang got her iPod, did I hear a "thank you" for having already ripped all our CDs so she wouldn't have to?Well, what do you think?
Man, you normal people amaze and confound me. You only have 12-100 CDs? And that's from a lifetime's worth of buying music? I can't imagine. You normal people are so strange.
No Mac here, justi. I come to you courtesy of a 2001 Dell laptop with old Windows XP given to my hubby by his law firm at the time. I don't have any itunes. I don't have any music programs. And the CD drive is external.
Like can I go to itunes and ask for every Springsteen tune they've got? Or do I have to do it song by song?
