Mar 20th 2010 12:45PM What I would really like is the ability to encrypt back ups made using Time Machine. Now you have no other option than leaving all your data unencrypted on an external hard disk for anyone to take.
Of course there are workarounds with using encrypted disk images but it should be standard.
Feb 25th 2009 5:09PM I don't see why it is stylish to put recangular devices on theirs side and tilt them like it is some sort of antenna. The Nintendo Wii started this, then Asus started building PC's and now it's suddenly stylish to do it with card readers as well so that you can put an entire array of antenna-like devices on your desk and play domino with them.
Feb 21st 2009 7:01AM It seems they have more in common than you might think:
"Smirnoff graduated from Fordham University with a double major in economics and information system programming."
Feb 5th 2009 6:28PM These featurs are already present in the iPhone version of the operating system. It makes sense to implement them in the desktop version also, it simplifies the development because there are less differences and also adds some useful functionality. The same thing happened with CoreAnimation; it was originally developed for the iPhone and also implemented in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard because it was also useful on the desktop.
Dec 29th 2008 2:12PM Unfortunately these home servers still require a PC with Microsoft Windows installed to manage them, if you have an household with all-macs you need to buy an additional Windows license and install it using bootcamp or a virtual machine.
Personally I would much prefer a similar concept for home storage running a more UNIX-like operating system.
Oct 3rd 2008 6:26PM I wouldn't call this keyboard tiny, small yes, tiny no. You can't even type on it with just your thumbs, that would make it tiny.
Aug 29th 2008 6:35PM Althougth it has been pointed out here that technically ProRes422 is lossy, there are two different kinds of lossy.
Formats like JPEG, MP3 and H.264 are incrimentally lossy, each time you edit them you have to re-encode them and lose some quality, which means that it keeps degrading the more you work with it.
With formats like ProRes422 and DV you throw away some material at the first save, but when edit it and re-encode it there is no additional loss of data. Therefor these formats are suited for editing because they are not lossy anymore after the first time encoding.
Jun 18th 2008 9:25PM When I was still using Windows I had to go out of my way just to make my browser open PDF files in their right application.
Opening non-web content in a browser is utterly insane simply because all the menu's and controls don't work.
May 28th 2008 4:37AM What is "jury-rigged" supposed to mean? Did CNN mean "jerry-rigged"?
May 15th 2008 11:08AM This is an old screenshot. The new version no longer has the bookmarks panel on the left side which seems to work better.
I found that Cyberduck 3 works much snappier for both browsing directories and downloading files.
