Matinee VIDEO_TS Launcher

Monday, January 31st, 2005

While Jonathan is whiling away the hours in total seclusion, hoarding his Mac mini all to himself, err wait I’m not bitter. Any way while we anxiously await his initial impressions, I thought another ‘useful software’ tip was in order. With the various still in development Mac HT front ends make their way out into our […]

Mini Arrives!!

Monday, January 31st, 2005

Well – I’ve been dying waiting and when I discovered that Tekserve a local Mac shop had the mini in stock, I immediately ran out and picked it up. I’ve been seriously regretting not ordering mine as soon as it was announced. My Apple BTO system is still not even scheduled to ship until 2/22. […]

G-PLAY Portable Media Player

Sunday, January 30th, 2005

I just discovered the G-PLAY Portable Media Player from G-TECH and it looks very similar to another product we recently noted, the LaCie Silverscreen. A key difference on the surface is the availability of a 100GB version when released in March of this year. Speaking of the surface, there is a beautiful enclosure which will […]

Where’s the scroll wheel?

Saturday, January 29th, 2005

Articles like this one, about Apple mice, are the kind of things new Mac Mini owners should investigate ‘before’ yours arrives. Every bit of Mac yes’s and no no’s you can get under your belt before hand helps ensure your not banging your head against that new keyboard instead of enjoying it. Much akin to […]

Build your Own DVR

Friday, January 28th, 2005

O’Reilly has a great and easy to follow step by step for building your own DVR with existing equipment you most likely have already waiting to be used. I had never heard of HackTV, the app that does most of the tricks, but after reading the piece and seeing it in action, I was reminded […]

Apple updates Mac mini info

Friday, January 28th, 2005

I just received an email from Apple and wanted to pass along the info for those still considering which option is right for them… We want to clarify some confusion regarding the speed of the SuperDrive that comes with your computer. For a short time, the Apple Store online incorrectly referenced a SuperDrive burning speed […]

Waiting on my mini, researching beats re-runs

Thursday, January 27th, 2005

I’ve twiddled my thumbs raw waiting on my Mini and it’s driving me nuts. I’ve got network drives in place, every accessory (I can think of) that I might need, and still no Mini to use them with. I’ve decided a worthy pass time until ‘on or before 2/15/05’ might be to take a look […]

MacHTPC at the center of your Media Solar System

Wednesday, January 26th, 2005

The Mac Media System is bound to be a “Solar System” of components until the day there is an integrated solution from Apple or from a likely partner. Jim Louderback writes about the connection and integration issues in his latest column for PC Magazine, The Role of the Media Center. Jim attempts to integrate several […]

Tuesday, January 25th, 2005

Apple recently cut the prices on Mini upgrades, making the Mac mini an even more attractive package than before. The Bluetooth and AirPort Extreme combo option now goes for $99 ($129 before), […]
