In Pages ’09, I love working with my documents in full-screen mode. It prevents me from getting distracted from other windows in the background. How can I get my other applications to display their documents in full-screen mode as well?
Our art director, Robin, rocks a tricked-out Mac Pro at work, but at
home her trusty steed is a Power Mac G5. Compared to her work machine,
the 6-year-old G5 could qualify for Social Security benefits, but it’s
still trucking along, after previous upgrades to the RAM and hard drive.
however, the SuperDrive stopped reading DVDs. And poor Robin worried
this might be the final warning sign that her Mac isn’t long for this
world. After all, a friend of hers bought the same one at the same
time, and that G5 suffered a fatal frying of the logic board and went
up to that great server farm in the sky.
I love spending my afternoons peacefully lying in a field, staring up
at the sky and looking at the figures and formations my mind conjures
up from the clouds, from cats to dragons to my boss’s face asking me
what the heck I’m doing lying in a field and not in the office on a
Monday afternoon. In this tutorial, I’ll show you how to create your
own images within cloud formations without ever having to leave your
desk. We’ll use Phoenix, Aviary.com’s Web-based image editor, which is
akin to Adobe Photoshop but doesn’t require you to install any software.
I’m running a Power Mac G4 MMD (mirrored-drive doors), a 7-year-old
computer. I’m proud to say that I also squeezed all the juice out of my
previous Mac, a Power Mac 7600, and used it for just as long. That’s
what I like about Macs: even old ones are still functional.
why did ATI discontinue the Radeon 9800 Pro Mac Edition? Mine is less
than three years old, but it’s giving me problems. ATI won’t repair the
card because the parts it needs are no longer available, and stores
that claim to sell it still want a whopping $250 for what is supposed
to be an “old” card.
GarageBand has done a great job of bringing user-friendly, intuitive
home-recording tools to the masses. But while the results usually
outstrip the four-track compositions of yore, most GarageBand creations
sound like exactly what they are: one person recording simple musical
sketches to a computer. Fortunately, with the application of a few
simple pro-recording concepts, your solo projects can be so much more.
I want to produce CD labels on my Mac for the classical concerts
I’ve conducted for the last 40 years, which I’ve been burning onto CDs
using Pro Tools. Is there a simple, affordable application for
producing paste-on labels, which I prefer for my CDs?
