    How do you get content off AppleTV?

    It's a long story, but the upshot is I trashed my iTunes library by mistake (90GB worth!). I have backups of my music, but there are a lot of podcasts and TV shows that I don't have backups of. I have an AppleTV, however, which contains most of my library. I know you can do this with iPods...

    Â characters polluting Drupal-powered website

    A client of mine is using Drupal for a website. Suddenly, Â characters are popping up wherever an apostrophe appears. I've seen this before when cutting and pasting into a text editor from a rich text format, but why has Drupal suddenly begun doing this? Even if contributors are cutting and...

    Best compatible ExpressCard wifi cards?

    I need a wifi card for my MacBook Pro (preferably N, but G is OK), and an ExpressCard version seems the best choice, however I'm having a really hard time finding one in stores, much less one that I know is Mac compatible. It seems the PC-world's reluctance to move on from PCMCIA is slowing down...

    iPhone forgetting playback position; resetting playback history

    I have 2 frustrating issues with my iPhone and I'm interested if anyone else has had the same issues: 1) I would estimate about every 1 in 6 times I play a podcast or audiobook that I am part-way through, the iPhone snaps it back to the beginning, losing my spot. 2) sporadically, it marks...

    AppleTV HD movie rentals cost $16 each

    The AppleTV's rentals is a great step in digital downloads. In the long term I do think it is the future, however it is simply too expensive. People always forget about the download limit when buying online content, I guess because until now most people have never run up against the limit...

    Apple sanctions custom ringtones through GarageBand

    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=307108 I didn't see this coming -- with the new GarageBand update, you can now send songs to iPhone as a ringtone. It requires firmware version 1.1.2, so those using jailbroken 1.1.1 iPhones can't do this just yet, but great to see Apple doing...

    My first iPhone web app :)

    Just for fun, I created a little Web app for the iPhone that i'd love to get some feedabck on. I needed a shopping list app, and while oneTrip is great, I found there were a couple of issues: 1) most of the time I found entering items manually was easier than cycling through the menus...

    iMac G5 & EyeTV on Leopard; slow playback

    I have an EyeTV 200 hooked up through firewire to my iMac G5 2Ghz. I've used it for 2 years with no problems, but after upgrading to Leopard the playback is extremely slow and unwatchable. I've tried upgrading to the latest leopard-compatible version of EyeTV v2 software, and downgrading to...

    using iPhone dock in Australia; voltage issues?

    My iPhone arrived today, imported from the USA, unlocked and absolutely amazing :D I love it. Obviously, it came with those funny american power prongs, so I swapped it out with the equally-amusing Australian duckhead prongs I had laying around from my MacBook Pro power attachment...

    Time Machine not detecting any changes

    I have Time Machine setup to backup my home directory. I first set it going last night and all worked fine (backed up ~30GB of stuff). Since then, however, it ticks down every hour, but when it gets there it does nothing. 13 hours later the "lastest backup" still reads yesterday evening, even...

    Dual display issues with Leopard version of Boot Camp

    I have a Dell 24" monitor hooked up to my MBP. When I boot into Windows I have problems with this setup. I can extend the desktop OK, but, but the 24" screen can be set only as the secondary monitor. Obviously, when playing games or full screen video this doesn't work, as they only on the...

    What to do with my ExpressCard slot...

    I've had my MBP for years, and it occurs to me I have never used the ExpressCard slot. Seeing as this is one of the biggest differentiators from the MacBook, it seems a shame to waste it. Anyone have any product recommendations?

    Prediction: Zune will surpass iPod within 2 years.

    No, I'm not trolling, I am serious. People give the Zune a hard time, but I have to say, I am getting this weird feeling that it is going to be very successful long term. Maybe it's just the places I am hanging out both on and offline, but I feel like Apple and the iPod's sheen is starting to...

    A sign of things to come? College students love Apple.

    I don't usually like recycling digg links, but this one was just too amazing to pass up. Photo is of a lecture theatre on an unnamed college campus. I have noticed this trend at my local uni, also. Not nearly to this extent, but it is definitely growing very fast...

    What is best way to mount the AppleTV to the wall?

    Bought an AppleTV yesterday, but because of my setup I need to mount it on the wall (flat against the wall). ANyone know the best way? I was thinking using 3 or 4 of those 3M Ahvesive stips like these except they dont have a hook -- you stick them on something (usually a picture frame)...

    http://www.engadget.com/2007/08/28/its-on-apple-event-slated-for-september-5th/ looks like it is happening. And by the looks of the invite, it will very likely be something to do with the iPod. this is perfect timing for me -- my iPod 5G died literally yesterday (HDD is dead. I dropped it...

    My sister bought a PC, just because it was pink!

    Macs aren't for everyone, no doubt, so when my sister -- after planning to buy a MacBook for many months -- announced she was buying a Dell laptop I was mildly irritated/disappointed but nothing much. Until, that is, she revealed her reason for choosing a Dell...simply because it came in pink...

    August 7 predictions

    Now that Apple seems to have confirmed the August 7 event, let the predictions begin! The new brushed metal iMac seems a safe bet at this point. I'm crossing all my fingers that they will upgrade the Mac Mini. I am trying to put together a home theatre setup with a mini but am waiting for...

    RAM is bad, but how do I prove it?

    I bought 1 GB stick of ram for my MacBook Pro a couple weeks ago, and I suspect it is bad, because: * was receiving 2-5 kernel panics an hour about 2 weeks after purchase * was experiencing many, many random app crashes and corrupted preferences * in some case, I had a random restart, and...
