    My latest project: EasyStand for iPad

    Keith, There is very little stress. The amount of force applied to the iPad while in use in the stand is nill. The stand will actually tip backwards before you could push on the iPad hard enough to weaken the stand. -EJ

    My latest project: EasyStand for iPad

    Sam, I have not. I've received several questions regarding the Apple case. I need to test it but my local Apple store is out of them and the online store is a 4 week wait.

    Apple iPad buyers / Owners thread

    Played with the iPad today at the mall. I was quite surprised to be able to do so because it was at an Apple authorized reseller. I was shocked to see 3 iPads on display at the shop. We were just cruzing the mall after seeing a movie. They even had several of the 32 and 64's in stock. I was...

    DVD to Imovie

    What u need is a way to bridge your analog source into your Mac and then you can capture the video in iMovie. I do this with an old Canon DV camcorder that has an option to convert video out. Once you have the capture in iMovie you can export to iDVD and burn your disks. -EJ

    Apple iPhone 3G S Discussion

    Just thought I'd share my impression after a day. This is my first iPhone although I've been a very happy iPod touch (2nd Gen) owner for about 9 months. Set up went as easy as it could. I transferred my ipod backup to the iPhone so I had a minimal amount of setup to do to get things off and...

    Hit me on my 3GS

    Yeah, I was wondering about that. I'm thinking that I'll cover the back of my 3GS with invisible shield and see how the screen does sans protector. I have the Power Support Anti-Glare Film Set for iPhone - Apple Store (U.S.) on my ipod touch screen and I really like it mostly because is resists...

    Help With Mac Networking...

    Gary- I'm just trying to understand your goal here. Are you hoping to use the Linksys as an extender to the AE? Or are you wishing to set up dual networks so you can run the AE as an "N" and the Linksys as a "G"? Or do you have something else in mind? -EJ

    Finally talked my Mom into switching ordered her a 20" iMac...

    Well, it has been over a year since the purchase and Mom's iMac is still giving me problems. I was able to fix the previous kernel panic issues by wiping the system and completing a full reinstall. Now the optical drive seems to be dead, makes loud clunking noises and won't boot a disk. Worse...

    Question regarding upgrading hard drive on Macbook Pro

    Question regarding upgrading hard drive on Macbook Pro

    Ron, do you have your current drive backed up to Time Machine? You can easily setup your new drive with all your old stuff directly from the time machine if you do. I used this method a few months ago when I switched machines and it was easy and worked very well. -EJ

    iTunes file sharing

    You'd have to setup computer 2 to mount computer 1 via file sharing. Then you can point iTunes on computer 2 to the library on computer 1. Then you have only one library and both computers read all the same files. I've used this system for a while and it works fairly well. The drawback is...

    So what mode does the verizon wireless use? Is it a "g" network? If so you should be able to ethernet from the verizon router to the APX and set it up as an "n" network and you'll be back to your old speeds again. I run both a APExpress in "g" and an APExtreme in "n" simultaneously with no...

    You need a firewire cable between the mac and bridge. Looks like it can be either a 4-to-6 pin or a 6-to-6 pin. Then you can connect the VCR to the bridge. S-video will be the best (if your player is so equipped) if not the other option is composite (yellow rca) Then you'll need to connect the...
