Let’s get ready to turkeeeeeeyyyyy! Okay, maybe that’s a bit too excitement for gathering around the table with loved ones and carving up some unlucky bird, but it’s Thanksgiving Eve and the anticipation of a huge meal on Thursday coupled with the contact high of Black Friday sales must have us buzzing. And hey, there’s actually other stuff going on today that doesn’t relate to Turkey Day, so here’s all the news for Wednesday, November 23, 2011.
It seems that we are constantly looking up entertainment or other videos on YouTube, but if you don’t have an active internet connection available you won't be watching anything. That is, unless you download the videos to your hard drive. We’ll show you how it’s done with just Safari and QuickTime 7 Pro.
Preparing your videos for internet uploads can be a pain for some. Some video sharing websites treat the files differently, leaving many to export multiple copies of their videos for each site they wish to share their video with. However, with the appropriate settings in iMovie or QuickTime, you can easily export one high-quality file that can be used on any video sharing website to give viewers the best possible quality.
Yet another new Apple television commercial popped up on Sunday as much of the U.S. was basked in the warm glow of a summer heat wave. Once again, the iPad 2 was the star of the show, but the tablet also gave a clever nod back to where it all started as well.
Over the weekend, Apple pushed out a new pair of TV commercials for the iPhone, both aimed at captivating potential customers with “gee whiz” technology features built right into the iconic handset -- AirPlay and FaceTime.
Recent Mac owners who rushed to get the latest and greatest computers with Thunderbolt on board have likely been disappointed to discover there’s nothing available yet to plug into them -- but that’s all about to change, as a video out of Japan reveals a new Blackmagic box in use with two of the ports.
As if the iPad 2 needs any more of a boost in sales since many people still can’t get their hands on one, Apple has released a new television spot, “If You Asked,” highlighting all of the wonderful ways people might describe their favorite tablet.
Apple is continuing to pimp the iPhone 4, even in the wake of last Friday’s wildly successful iPad 2 launch, with three new television commercials that just hit YouTube. The theme of the new spots? “If you don’t have an iPhone… well, you don’t have an iPhone.”
When people think of Apple, they tend to think of Steve Jobs. So linked are the man and the company, that when his health takes a dip, so too do the fiscal fortunes of all that he's built. Confident, polished and well spoken, Jobs rarely flounders in the public eye. If you set your Wayback Machine for a trip to the late 1970s, however, you'll find evidence to support the theory that true greatness is not born but honed over time. Ladies and Gentlemen: for your viewing pleasure, we present to you Awkward Steve Jobs!
