lol thanks Gunny! - earl wallace
it's like the spam doesnt exist - A Gunny named Slickback
think about it, the Apple Store is great for a party - it has a Genius bar to serve drinks and a screen to play slideshows, piped music and tables for food.. nice.. too bad they said no.. - Gautam Godse

Video sound is not coming through. - Jim Erickson
Well, an hour away instead of three - Robert DeLaurentis
What happens when your Zune Pass expires? - Jim Erickson
The G1 is in the UK on T Mobile - Sam Rhymes
Windows is getting desperate - Scott Johnson
Bethesda, MD and I can walk to one on my lunch break. They actuaaly just expanded and moved across the street. - Mike Getz
Darn I'm late! - Bwana ☠
my first ipod was full just from my old cd collection. - Benjamin
Spotify, and they are doing an iPhone app. - blacklight
Haven't missed too much, Bwana ^^ - Scott Johnson
No need to buy a Zune. Get rhapsody & you can use all sorts of hardware - pbombach
For for simple music storage, and maybe some video a Zune is a good buy. <ducking> - Nick O
Yay Zune bashing! ;-) - Bwana ☠
Zune phone rumor I presume? - Bwana ☠
After getting the ipod, you realize what quality is - Scott Johnson
been wanting to get a sansa clip for some time - Matthew
I wouldn't mind trying a sandisk player with a removable card - Scott Johnson
Is the ipod player on the Iphone not a replacement for buying an ipod? - earl wallace
Sony video walkman is nice too. - pbombach
It just feels like throwing the money away to me. - blacklight
Rhapsody to go is $15/month. Can't keep any songs though - pbombach
It is for me, Earl. I never use my ipod now, lol - Scott Johnson
I had one of the original Zune's. I loved it for a long, long time. Could play any video, could do any MP3s, and held a charge for several hours. Days with limited use. The Zune is a great product. - Lucavex Ayanami
If Microsoft made a Zune phone they would all brick every time a new phone is activated - Elliott Kieff
Alex won't give up on subscriptions and tablet. - Mike Getz
I would have bought an Iphone instaed of a BB Bold if AT&t would get off its behind and bring 3g here - earl wallace
Just saw this on electronista - specs of what may be the Zune phone: - Barry Wiseman
subscription model is a good idea and a win win for apple IMHO - A Gunny named Slickback
Yea, we're still waiting on it here. THey say it should be here by the end of the year. So we'll have it in '12 - Scott Johnson
the video editor commecial is pretty dumb - A Gunny named Slickback
You don't need any space on your iphone to put music on. I use Simplify. All music is on my home iMac. - Benjamin
For under 2k, then she "pays" 2k - Scott Johnson
I want something bigger.....I want something smaller... - Jim Erickson
Benjamin- you had luck with Simplify? I've had a lot of dropouts, but i have 1gen iphone - Barry Wiseman
Have you tried Vegas on Windows Alex? - Jim Erickson
Barry- Yeah works a little better over 3G - Benjamin
filmmaker = I upload videos from my camera to youtube - Matthew
Too bad they don't show you what these people say a week from when they get the comp - Scott Johnson
O_O - Bwana ☠
Agreed- Vegas has grown in leaps and bounds. It does many things better than my FCP rig... - GeekDads.TV
hi. In this regard, I have to respect Alex's opinion - Bwana ☠
Yeah Alex kinda knows video :) - A Gunny named Slickback
Final Cut Express is $400? - Mike Getz
You definitely can do good editing on a PC. But nothing comes standard that's any good. - Scott Johnson
Thought FCE was $200 - Mike Getz
Yeah FCE is $200 - Barry Wiseman
for a "free app" iMovie 09 is pretty powerful - A Gunny named Slickback
I use Sony Vegas :| - Matthew
It's not worth it to put flash on the iphone - Scott Johnson
Apple and Google do compete. - Mike Getz
Browser, Mail, Documents and others - Mike Getz
As soon as Google starts selling apples, and has shows featuring such characters such as Andy Ihnatko, there is no competition - Scott Johnson
Flash for the BB was supposed to launch this far no go. - earl wallace
Apple and Google overlap - but complete? After all, Apple is really a hardware company, and Google is an advertising company. - Robert DeLaurentis
anti Steve Jobs :) - Bwana ☠
I just see it as, anything that is worth doing on an iphone that would normally require flash there is an app for, or a way of doing it. And if there is that "one thing," you have to have it for, take a 30 second trip to your computer - Scott Johnson
We need an APERTURE update!! - Shannon Burns
I just wish I could get the Pre on my SERO everything I've seen says no go - A Gunny named Slickback
Blackberries are great! Then a week later you get rid of it and get an iphone! - Scott Johnson
Biggest reason not to add flash...battery life. Otherwise, why not add flash? - Paul Puri
Any Flash movie on my MacBook is the only item that turns on the cooling fans. Its got to be a an unoptimized mess under the hood. - Robert DeLaurentis
Because Flash sucks on Mac OS X - Bwana ☠
correction, Flash REALLY sucks on Mac OS X - Bwana ☠
Amen Bwana amen - A Gunny named Slickback
I guess MobileMe competes with Google the most. Also, iPhone and G1 are competitors - Mike Getz
Aperture update! Yes! Finger crossed that they are waiting for Snow Leopard. - Robert DeLaurentis
Sounds like my videos :) - Bwana ☠
Jailbreak and use DemoGod - iGerard
I agree with what they said last week, we won't be seeing snow leopard at WWDC, but we'll get some info that will make us drool - Scott Johnson
/me closes his ears - Bwana ☠
SlingPlayer.... no 3G - Bwana ☠
Leo, it was $30 on WinMo too I believe - Bwana ☠
Orb does 3G... - Jed
Agreed, the price makes no sense without 3G - Bwana ☠
Are they taking talk shoe calls on this episode - Doug
sounds like a great video show for Pixel Corps--can't wait for that one - Nathan Lott
How much is the Blackberry version? - markrobw
Dont forget about Peggle for iPhone, the crack game ;) - Ricky Steven Isbell
/still has no iphone - A Gunny named Slickback
is there a good way to suggest a topic - Doug
Nah, they just glance down every now and then, Doug - Scott Johnson
Or you can call his house phone - Scott Johnson
it's yet another iPhone only restriction - Bwana ☠
which ticks me off - Bwana ☠
Doug - MBWpicks on Delicious - Robert DeLaurentis
M-I-Z - Jo Ann
Well if they glance down they should check out, this guys offering a rich api for applications in the itunes app store, makes it easy to build custom apps/websites to search the app store - Doug
I think it's a cool idea - Doug
we need learning pods like in Star Trek - Matthew
Professors are generally lazy - that's the issue. - Bwana ☠
It'll be nice when they give use peripheral keyboard compatability. That would be excellent for my lectures - Scott Johnson
A proper learning session won't give you time to sketch - Bwana ☠
True, Bwana. - Scott Johnson
I don't think iPhones are a good idea - Bwana ☠
it's a giant source of distraction - Bwana ☠
Umich already does the spot checking via a device called Qwizdom - pbombach
costs $20 - pbombach
I want to go to the school in Alex's imagination! - Robert DeLaurentis
YOu guys are talking about the iClicker thing. We use those in Nursing School. They would be cool if our instructors could get them to work :P - Scott Johnson
Leo, rumors of a quad core MBP. - iGerard
taking notes and studying them later is ther real learning..this tech way is slothe and useless - earl wallace
I love the HFS+ driver for BootCamp - A Gunny named Slickback
if they're focusing on bug fixes (which is what I gather from a feature freeze) I think they're pretty close to a release - Bwana ☠
2 months is close to me :) - Bwana ☠
Well, earl. I'd have to disagree. I can't take notes and rea them later, because it's too boring. Interractivity is the way I learn. I'm very tactile. - Scott Johnson
Just giving us some kind of feature demo at WWDC and then an approximate ship date would be nice... - Barry Wiseman
Using the app to record eveyones answers and let us do questions as a class is awesome - Scott Johnson
well I see your point ..I guess the difference in perception is the generational teaching techniques of the past and now...lecture notes then, keyboarding notes in classroom now - earl wallace
Right. And how one learns is also a huge factor. I learn best by doing things, while another learns best by reading, and another can only learn by hearing something - Scott Johnson
That "definitely" has generational factors, Chuck. If I learn how to do something now, I'm going to be doing it 50 years from now. As long as it still works and then info gets conveyed, I'm still going to do it. It just so happens that they learned to do these things prior to knowing the usefulness of macs - Scott Johnson
It's sad, really - Scott Johnson
Apple tells developers to make apps compatable with firmware 3.0 for AppStore. New apps must be compatible if submitted now. Old apps must be made compatible or they will be removed. See - judy Engelsberg
you're caps lock is definitely working - Matthew
O_O - Bwana ☠
That makes it difficult for a brand new developer like me. Now I have to wait for the 3.0 sdk to drop for free so I can re-work what I've already done. What the heck? - Scott Johnson
I'm suprised that is actual intelligence in this comment thread, and not people who think the proper way to start and end every sentence is with the word "lol" - Lucavex Ayanami
accidental atheism? - Matthew
That's the very reason I stopped chatting on Stickam - Scott Johnson
Is virtualization as fast as running windows through boot camp? - Michael K
Right, Chuck. And little by little the old teachers are giving in to teaching about the use of these systems and technique - Scott Johnson
virtual box is spiffy, but VM Ware and Parallels have better 3d support for example the aero effects in Win 7 don't work in VB - A Gunny named Slickback
There was an article in the LA time last week explaining how difficult it is to dismiss bad teachers. Bottom line, its almost impossible. - Robert DeLaurentis
Yes, but you get what you pay for. - Lucavex Ayanami
I just used bootcamp for Vista partition. Which one are you able to run 4 OS's at once? It's 79.99 - Scott Johnson
Lucavex and Scott ypu both hit the nail on the head. It also more peaceful and easier to understand ideas in here without trying to comprehend traffic going by at 100 mph - earl wallace
Which hurts everyone, good teachers and bad - Robert DeLaurentis
Fusion is great - Bwana ☠
Right, Earl. The only problem will be when more well-meaning people like use join this chat and it gets bogged down, lol! - Scott Johnson
just pointing it out. If you want to play HL2 for example it won't work in VB - A Gunny named Slickback
LOL, I just answered that same question yesterday :) - Bwana ☠
video will be up soon /plug - Bwana ☠
scott I guess that is where the blocking mechanism will show it's value - earl wallace
Crossing my fingers - Scott Johnson
HL2 works fine in Parallels is my only reason for mentioning it - A Gunny named Slickback
I have to agree with Leo here. Windows 7 (Which is what I currently use at home) is so stable and solid even under the release candidate. Microsoft really did themselves justice on this new OS. I've never purchased a legitimate copy of an operating system since I was 14. I am now 25. But I can say with 100% truth that I will be purchasing Windows 7. - Lucavex Ayanami
$1500! Sweet! I'll take 2! - Bwana ☠
Mind if I invite you on twitter, Earl and Chuck? - Scott Johnson
of course thanks Scott - earl wallace
Thank you ^^ - Scott Johnson
Im earlwallace on twitter - earl wallace
I've used snaptell on DVD's too... works great - Barry Wiseman
Has anyone here tried Jaadu? - Scott Johnson
That's something you guys should bring up one more time, Leo "Jaadu" - Scott Johnson
I'm not familiar with Jaadu. Yes, I'd love a quick explaination. - Lucavex Ayanami
Very brief: Jaadu allows you to access your Mac, WIndows, or Linux system on your iPhone/iPod via a VNC - Scott Johnson
Stoked to be watching MacBreak Weekly live. Just downloading Solaris and SnapTell. Funny - I always pictured Don McAllister differently. - Dan Biddle
paid - Matthew
$25, but you can access your comp over edge, wifi, and 3g, and it runs great - Scott Johnson
Excellent briefing, Scott. Thank you. - Lucavex Ayanami
back to the music progs, Propellerheads coming out with Record to go with Reason! Psyched: - David Balogh
What's the name of the app Alex's talking about? No problem, Lucavex. ^^ Glad to help - Scott Johnson
Numerology - Bwana ☠
Thank you, Bwana ^^ - Scott Johnson
An excellent, cheap step sequencer is FL Studio. I'm not sure of it's availability for Mac, though. - Lucavex Ayanami
@Bwana Hay! - D Lets
I want the new version! - Bwana ☠
automagic blog post - Bwana ☠
Feeder user here :) - Bwana ☠
Note to self: Feeder sounds great - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
No sir, D Lets. You don't need to jailbreak for Jaadu. Search for it on the App store ^^ - Scott Johnson
Oh, lord, Here we go ~.^ - Scott Johnson
Scott I cant find your twiiter nick to add you to my twiiter? - earl wallace
LOL - Bwana ☠
Thanks Chuck Looking to add you now - earl wallace
Aye, I'm following you and chuck. Lemme see about adding you as a friend. I'm a N00b to Twitter - Scott Johnson
I was bit by the seagate barracuda bug too - A Gunny named Slickback
I don't know how this thing connects to twitter, or if it does >< - Scott Johnson
Is there a big performance jump in 7200 rpm laptop drives? - Michael K
There is for me mike. - Bwana ☠
You'll definitely see a difference as compared to a 5800 - Scott Johnson
*5400 - Scott Johnson
That's why I got a 7200rpm - Video - Bwana ☠
Mike you'll notice a definite "lag" time time when you compare a 5400 to a 7800. It's not enough to make or break a hard drive buy decision unless you do video editing. - Lucavex Ayanami
Or other HDD intensive tasks. - Lucavex Ayanami
I want to do something else Alex :) - Bwana ☠
hehe - Bwana ☠
You know what, I may just be following you on friendfeed, guys. I'm Scott Johnson on twitter too - Scott Johnson
Thanks for the info on HD rpm speed. Holding out on stock 08-MBP drive. - Michael K
I found you both! Thanks - earl wallace
Kk, cool - Scott Johnson
insert gotomypc ad here - Dominic
Drop box + back to my mac (if it worked) = the force unleashed - Michael K
Im using Dropbax and (forgive the plug) and Carbonite sofar so goo - earl wallace
Mobile Me didn't thrill me too much when it was explained to me - Scott Johnson
LOVE DropBox - Rob Michael (Atmos Trio)
The only thing that interested me was the easy web design. Now with Jaadu, I don't need mobile me - Scott Johnson
I doubt I ever buy Dropbox because of the nice 2 gig storage. - earl wallace
POGOPLUG is down, lol - Shannon Burns
Ah, Hamachi - Scott Johnson
Chuck, I love logmein, make any family member who wants computer help, install it. - Ryan
cwob is the coolest name for a web site. I used hamachi in the past and had to make a Logmein ID. I think thats where I got mixed up, Chuck - Scott Johnson
I used it on my windows machine. Not too keen on trying it for Mac - Scott Johnson
This was a good show thanks Leo! - earl wallace
Alright guys and gals. Good talking with you, and I'll see you next week. - Scott Johnson
great show! - Robert DeLaurentis
Good job guys - Robert Phares
I like the "Mac break is broke" better - Scott Johnson
Alright chuck and earl, take care and I'll ttyl - Scott Johnson
you too Scott and Chuck! - earl wallace
Fun stuff, and nice tan Leo. Petaluma glow ;) - Michael K
Sure glad I was listen as The Twit Cottage lost audio again - La Iguana Wanna
Great show! Don, I don't know how we can have you on @vexedtech after MBW :P - iGerard
@daveccorey I think it's trying to communicate! - Lucavex Ayanami
