iPhone 3G Reviews

Well, “ilounge”:http://www.ilounge.com/index.php/news/comments/live-iphone-3g-vs-iphone-comparison-test-results-here/ has a good first review set: * The White 16GB is going to be much cleaner with fewer fingerprints than the black one. I’m kinda regretting ordering the black one now that I’ve seen photos. The white one is actually quite cute. * Some folks are saying that this is really like iPhone […]

Here’s a guide: h3. iPhoto ’08 for quick and dirty on the screen slideshows First this is confusingly actually iPhoto ’08 , version 7.0 (why couldn’t they just bump the version to match the date?).

MacBook Air SuperDrive jammed and will not eject so shake it!

Hat tip to “TUAW”:http://www.tuaw.com/2008/06/24/mod-use-your-macbook-air-superdrive-on-any-machine/ apparently, “Tnkgrl”:http://tnkgrl.wordpress.com/2008/06/24/macbook-air-superdrive-for-all/ has figured out how to open up a Superdrive, replace a part and thus make it universally compatible with all computers. Great geekout. OTOH, why go to all the trouble :-)? The “photos”:http://www.flickr.com/photos/tnkgrl/sets/72157605790040071/ are really useful so you can disassemble it.

Well, as I’ve been using various programs, it is pretty clear that you have to be pretty careful about using the different programs. Some things you want to do earlier and some later.

Zenphoto

OK, finally flopped Nextgen Gallery for ZenPhoto even though I can’t get the widget to work. But, let’s try integration. First, you should see a “Photos”:http://tongfamily.com/zenphoto button now at the top. You do need a password to see anything though 🙂 But to get it to actually integrate into the blog is the trick. First […]

Fotki vs. Zenphoto vs. Nextgen Gallery

I’ve been trying to figure out for quite a while what the best photo gallery is. Started with Picasa and some of the other ones, but they don’t allow original photos to be uploaded and have size limits. Last year, found “fotki.com”:http://fotki.com which is $30 per year and allows unlimited storage and also has password […]
