Getting that video to your computer

Getting that video to your computer

The holidays came and went and Santa was very nice to you. He came down the chimney, ate your cookies, drank your milk and left behind a brand new 5th generation iPod Nano. As you head out to meet the family for breakfast, you figure it might be nice to capture those moments on your new toy. A week later, you open your email to find one from Aunt Suzie asking for a copy of the footage you took, only to realize you don’t know how to get all that video off your Nano. And of course, there are no instructions included on how to do so. That’s where we, the TechHub, come in.

The New Aluminum Unibody MacBook Pro

The New Aluminum Unibody MacBook Pro

On October 14th 2008, Apple announced their new unibody design for the MacBook and MacBook Pro. In addition to the standard hardware upgrades, this new model boasts a chassis cut directly from a single sheet of aluminum. This is a welcome change that provides for a lighter, stronger and more environmentally friendly machine. This change also resolves case warping: a problem that plagued previous generations of the machine.

Well it took me awhile, but I am finally able to comment on the Macworld show that I had attended back on the 7th of January. There really is not much to say. It was boring and uneventful. Oh there was some new product like the new Filemaker, iLife ’09, and iWork ’09, but it did not bring any real excitement to the event.

People milling around the Apple Booth at Macworld 2009

We came, we saw, we went home. Sadly, this year’s Macworld didn’t seem to have the excitement in the air that even last year’s Macworld had. (This year’s Macworld and last year’s Macworld are the only shows that I have had the honor of attending.) Last year there was an extreme interest in the brand new MacBook Air, so the show floor was buzzing with excitement. This year, it seemed like even Apple knew that they really didn’t have any BIG thing at the show, as they were still heavily touting the “new” iPod Nano…you know…the one they released in September of last year.

I am definitely not saying that Apple didn’t have anything to show. Continue reading

The ever infamous Apple Keynote speech has come and gone. No Mac Mini (as many speculated), no iPhone nano (as many also speculated), and very sadly, no Steve Jobs. Love him or hate him, when you think of an Apple Keynote speech, you can’t help but think of that black turtleneck and the man who wore them. And for the last Apple Keynote speech, I would have to say, it was relatively lackluster. Perhaps this is why Steve decided not to deliver the speech himself…hmmmm…
