We didn't think we would be able to top the coolness factor of last week's walking iPads, but someone has surely done it. Here we have the USB typewriter keyboard. It's not just any old keyboard either, this one looks, feels, and sounds just like a typewriter.
Many people wouldn’t take a second look at the $29 iPad Camera Connection Kit because they could simply transfer photos and videos from their computer via iTunes. But, this little unsuspecting accessory has hidden powers, with which comes great responsibility.
I recently purchased a 13.3-inch aluminum unibody MacBook for
college. I love making films, in fact that is my current career choice,
but my camera only connects by FireWire. As you know, the aluminum
MacBook does not have a FireWire port. I like the camera I have, so I
don’t want to buy a new one. Do you know of any converter from FireWire
to USB that is decently affordable?
Earlier this week, at the IDF conference, Intel unveiled their revolutionary Light Peak optical connector, which promised a 10Gbps data throughput. In comparison, the maximum speed of USB 3.0, the successor to what we know as the the standard for data transfer, is 4.8Gpbs.
Turbo.264 HD aims to make converting video for use on your devices
easier. It works with pretty much any kind of video, whether it’s
something you shot yourself or video you ripped from your Welcome Back, Kotter DVD collection. Not that you’d do anything like that, of course.
Recent advances in utilities that allow the Mac to read and write Windows NTFS formatted drives now makes it possible to encrypt data on thumb drives and share the encrypted thumb drives between a Mac and a PC.
