As the Apple fanboy elite, our favorite product to mock is the
Microsoft Zune, but with the introduction of the Zune HD, they who must
not be named may have a one-up over the current line of iPod touches,
bragging that they can plug one into their TVs and playback 720p HD
While including your Twitter and Facebook friends' contact information would be a pretty cool add-on to Mac's Address Book, recently released "screenshots" appear less than completely accurate looking.
Unless there's a supreme head-fake in the works, don't count on any major Tablet announcements on 09/09/09. Despite that, though, the rumors persist and in this case, multiply to the point that at least one person is claiming that there's not just one iPad in the works, but two models of different sizes.
I sometimes get Time Machine errors that say something like “Backup
failed” or “Unable to complete backup” or “An error occurred while
copying files to the backup volume.” How am I supposed to interpret
what these error messages mean?
If you actually use your iPhone’s best features--the 3G network,
push notifications, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Location Services, all those
bells and whistles that make it so awesome--you’ve probably noticed your
battery needs recharging every day or two at least. We never leave home
without the cable and AC adapter that came with our iPhone, so we’re in
luck as long as we can find a power outlet or USB port to plug in to.
But wandering beyond walls and away from computers requires some extra
gadgetry to keep our iPhone charged, namely Belkin’s Dual Auto Charger
for the car and the iPWR SuperPack backup battery for everywhere else.

They say a picture’s worth a thousand words. And now that multimedia
has taken over the Web, flat 2D images sometimes just aren’t enough
anymore. But going from a series of photos to an interactive 3D image
can take a bit of work. After stitching the photos together, additional
processing is required to turn them into interactive, virtual reality
files viewable in a Web browser. Some stitching programs have the
capacity to output QuickTime VR (QTVR) files. Flash developers,
meanwhile, have made huge strides in coding Flash to display
interactive virtual reality images, and a handful of dedicated programs
now create Flash-based VR files.
