It looks like it's going to be a scorching Indian Summer. Apple will be hosting a fall event--where and when and for what reason is yet to be answered. Your calendars will have to remain blank for now.
Kara Swisher of All Things D speculates that the event could introduce FaceTime as an open industry standard, or bring new processors to the iPod. We're sort of banking on the latter, hoping we'll see new music players from Apple with attached cameras and retina displays. Really, if all the rumors could just come together and become a reality, we'll be completely satisfied.
This weekend, we're heading south to sunny San Diego to rub elbows with the legions of eccentric fans at Comic Con International. Our Associate Online Editor, Florence Ion, will be there this weekend to check out all the heroes in disguise, and the fans disguised as their heroes. Stay tuned to the site for our own coverage of the comic book and entertainment industries, including interviews with your favorite comic book and app publishers and video sneak peeks at this year's hottest upcoming iPhone and Mac games. Plus, we'll be back with a recap of the whole thing, so it'll be just like you were there!
iMovie’s a fantastic editing program that does a good job of organizing your footage. It’ll let you save your media and iMovie Events on external drives if you like, but what if you run out of space and need to move your clips to an even bigger drive? Apple’s engineers did think of this eventuality and provided an easy solution for it, but it only works well if you create one Project per Event and don’t use clips from multiple Events in a single Project. Otherwise, you may encounter problems--and fixing them can be trickier than you might think.
We’ll walk you through the easier, built-in way to move your iMovie files around; then we’ll guide you through the process of fixing your Projects and Events (if needed) once they’ve reached their new home. This should also help you understand why some of your clips may have become unlinked--rendering them invisible to iMovie even though you haven’t deleted them--and then fix that problem too.
