Macbook ThinSo, Apple went ahead and silently upgraded the the Macbook and Macbook Pro.I have been waiting for the updates since many of my friends and associates have been asking about when to buy a mac.I have to say, I am more than a little disappointed with Apple.There have been rumors that the Macbook was due for a redesign.

And, I agree since the Macbook design was a rip-off of the old iBook design which was introduced on May 1st, 2001. And, it is long overdue for an overhaul. Not to mention that the Macbook chassis is alot weaker and gets dirtier than the original iBook.

So, what’s the deal Apple? Where’s the newly redesigned Macbook? And for that matter, where is the long-awaited Macbook Thin? Also, where’s the Mac Tablet!? 

I’m am hoping and speculating (I guess I really have too much confidence in Apple being the old Apple) that this silent update means an announcement soon of a new device. I figure, you release a speed bump without any fanfare.And, then that leaves the new product to hold the spotlight. Correct?

SUCCESS!!!


Ok. I’m happy. Got my apps on my touch.  I followed the instructions from this link:Modmyiphone.compicture-2.png

iPod Touch Mounting?

This is an image of my iPod Touch appearing in iPhoto, Aperture, and Image Capture.  Is there anything that can be done with this? Is there some way to Mount the iPod Touch on the desktop like the regular iPods? I tried dragging photos into the iPod, and of course that didn’t work. It almost acts like I can drag photos out of it, though. picture-2.png 

I was a bit confused when I saw that I had a song on my Music list that I didn’t put there (I did buy the video). Then, I noticed the album art was the same as the music video.So, it seems that the iPod Touch (probably all iPods, for that matter) can play music videos as just songs without playing the video.

Negative Look on iPod Touch

If it’s not one thing, it’s another. I have one of those iPods people are talking about that has the “bad black” effect. The black values are horrible and look like a negative image. I hear some are getting exchanges by going to the Apple Store. That’s exactly what I plan to do.  I did a test watching film noir “Chinatown” and it’s just not watchable on my iPod Touch. I really hope this isn’t supposed to be like this. I expect more from Apple. 

This is my NEW working iPod Touch. (I sold the diagnostic one for some good money.

 I entered my password wrongly repeated and got this message:photo_091607_001.jpg

 I also found out that if you press ‘Home’ button twice even before you enter you passcode, the iPod  still can play music. The rewind, play/pause, and forward button appear and you can press play and listen.
