Just want to save this link: KeyShowX:Control Keynote/Powerpoint presentations over a network.
I was just ichattin with Mark and am thinking I gotta use this more often. It’s just as convinient as the phone and with wireless internet it’s like a cordless. The problem is I have no real reason to use it – it’s just a cool technology. That’s pretty much enough reason for me. I’m seriously tempted by the horribly overpriced ($189?!?! C’mon Apple!) and more useless to me isight webcamera just because of how well it works. I know in the latest version of MSN M$ made some improvements on the video component, but it still doesn’t work as well as iChat with an iSight.
I think we need to convince Sue’s sis and bro-in-law who live in Australia to get themselves a mac with an isight. heh heh.. Friggin Apple. It’s like a cult.
The Apple World Wide Developer Conference is also up at the end of the month, where new Powermac G5’s and possibly an iMac G5 are expected. Both are out of my price range and out of my “need” range, but it’s still cool to drool.
Just a quick list of some Mac games I’d been eyeing up and wanted to save the list here since Amazon is so rotten at sorting their gaming section:
Quite possibly very creepy, very funny but at the same time an apt description of the whole Windows vs Apple debate (debacle?) that goes on. I’ve included the original article in it’s entirety just in case it disappears but it came from this site’s entry.
" I have bought more software for my Mac than I ever did for my Windows PCs, most of it shareware. Is it really that much higher quality? Or am I buying her presents?"
The Mac Blog has moved to being a joint effort with coworkers and is now located here. It’s just a bookmark blog for neat Apple related stuff we come across while we work. Very geeky.
The Lydia’s open mic gig went pretty good last night. We had our drummer drop out at the last minute but Mark (Marc?) stepped in and covered well on congos and the full kit for Desire. I find it really hard to do much dynamically on accoustic so it felt like our set just was a mash of songs blending together. I really should have gotten a better accoustic guitar a long time ago but my techie interests always get in the way of the funds being there. Maybe a nice Simon and Patrick. Hmmmmm…
I think I have a performance inhibitor in my brain. Whenever I go on stage I’m sure it looks like I’m pissed to be there and not having a good time at all. The opposite is actually true. I’m having a great time, loving the music but I just don’t know what to do with myself. I get lost in playing the guitar and forget to move… and so I end up like a statue. Which is fine if you’re the only one doing it in a band… but we all tend to do that so we look like a band of robots sometimes.
Ah but we’re just getting started. Give it time I guess. Once we make the jump to stadium rock we’ll get the stage dives, guitar solos on my knees and flaming guitars going hard core.
