Apple announcements round 2

New iPod and iMac

Well here it is, finally the iPod with video!

No feature films yet but there are Music videos and TV shows available in the iTMS but I am guessing that as the format is just MPEG-4 that it will play anything that is ripped to that format.

Domain Name changes for Free

I have two domain names registered. One I have had for six years, the other for three. Both of these are registered via two different hosting companies. The only reason I registered the second one with a different Co. was because they were HALF the price of the first for the same services!

So now I have two companies to deal with, two sets of account login info and I really wanted to transfer to the cheaper host to have both names at one Co.

Gmail's Spam Filter

A word of warning for all Gmail users.

The Gmail spam filter seems to have become a tad over-zealous recently.

I checked in there and had to pull out at least 50 emails that were wrongly tagged as spam. These included 100% legit emails from collegues that had _no_ indication of being spam, as well as automated emails.

Since then I have found several other blogs warning of the same problem.

iPod Nano

[EDIT]
WOOPS didn't see Jammos entry. can't beat a bit of repetition ;)

iPod Nano

The new iPod is absolutely gorgeous. How do they get the workings into that wafer thin design?

Up to 4Gb too which makes it more viable than a shuffle for everyday use. Lovely to get a good colour screen on something that small too.

Apple pages are falling apart in Firefox

Update: before you read further it's confirmed that it's only happening with me, so you can stop reading. Sorry!

Another rant and I promise that will be it for a while. I'm disappointed to see that Apple.com's new product pages are literally falling apart in Firefox. What is going on? Anybody knows? I heard Apple is slowly moving to a new publishing system, hopefully this is not the first sign of such a move.

Displaced designer

Some nice folks launched a website to help the designers that lost a great deal. If you can help them by offering a desk do visit the site.

Please help them

It breaks my heart to see the trapped people and pets on roofs of flooded houses waiting for help. The resque efforts are far from over in the New Orleans area, but we have to think about what happens after everybody is safe. Thousands have lost everything. Rebuilding not only physical structures, but lives has to happen. If you can please donate to the red cross and the HSUS.

Coverflow - OpenGL meets your Music


Came across this very promising alpha app called Coverflow which reminded me of how well you can take a well known concept and start polishing it to make something original. Coverflow is at it's simplest an iTunes cover art browser.
