Everyone who has access to the news and/or internet are very well aware of the technology of cellular devices.. Many companies have developed high tech phones which could be categorized as mini-computers in my opinion. They allow you to do almost anything need a computer to do, such as: e-mail,playing games,checking your bank account status etc. The first company to make these types of high tech devices was RIM. Which made the first e-mail device to be used over a cellular network. And over the years made cellphones which included many popular functions, which are used today. In my opinion the most high tech phone today on the market which has gained high popularity is the iPhone produced by Apple Inc. Apple made the first ever complete touch screen phone. Which has many features such as: camera,internet usage over wi-fi or cellular networks,app store where you can download millions of apps designed for the iPhone and many many more. 


Many thanks to Josh for this post.
 

If you are like me, you watch your Tv shows on Hulu. I am personally on Hulu everyday and don't know what I would do with out it. When I miss a Tv show I don't have to worry about missing something in the next episode. So recently Hulu came out with a desktop client called Hulu Desktop. Pretty obvious name but the product is amazing. So in this blog post I am just going to be talking about Hulu Desktop.

So first things first, where do you download Hulu Desktop? Well, just click here. So after you download it and load it up you will notice that the interface in Hulu Desktop is amazingly sharp. So, in this application you can use your arrow keys or you mouse to navigate through. The application is just like hulu, you can watch any show that they support..


That is pretty much it for this post. I know it was short but I did say that I woild be posting every day so yeah.

Hey guys what's up. I just wanted to give you some updates of what has been going on and what to expect in the near future.


1. To many videos? - Well, some of you guys may have noticed that I have been posting a lot of videos lately. I know that usually don't post this much even in about 1 month but I got really far behind in the videos so I decided to post a lot of videos at a time. I didn't think that I would post that many videos about it but, I did. In a way I kinda got addicted to recording and editing videos. So now I am just going to be posting videos ever three days because it is summer now. 


2. Haven't posted a video in a few days? - Well, if you follow me on twitter which 75% of you guys do, then you would know that I have been on a cruise for the past few days. So if you were wondering why I haven't been tweeting or posting blog posts that is why. 


3. Where are the blog posts? - Well along with less videos lately you will also most likely notice that I have not been putting up blog posts on any of the sites I write for in a while. So I just want to also say that now I will be posting on these blog (with interesting topic) every day. Now some of the posts will have just videos wish some text in them just like most of the posts that I have but every day that I don't upload a video I will most likely put out an interesting post.




Thanks, 
Patrick Fassler

So a few days ago apple bumped up the specs of their old MacBook, as most of us know as the White Macbook. I am not quite sure why they would do this considering that they should focus on more of their new macs such as the Macbook Aluminum. But the point is that they did. So in this blog post I am just going to talk about what I think about the new specs and if they really did much to the Macbook. But before I start out I just want to say that the price has not changed at all. They are still at $999.

So one thing that you will notice off the bat is that Apple made the GHz a little better. When they first came out with the Aluminum Macbook they only sold the 2.0 GHz. Macbook (white). Now that they boosted up the specs it is now 2.13 GHz. So not that much changed there but it is still always better to have a higher GHz.The next thing that I am going to talk about is RAM. Now I am pretty sure that Apple has always sold the Macbook with 2 gig DDR2 memory but, I am not sure. But what I am trying to say is that there was no change in the RAM at all. So everything there is the same for the Old Macbooks. The new Macbooks have 2 gigs of DDR3 memory.

Now lets move onto the Intel chip. Now once again Apple didn't change their Intel Chip in the white macbook. It has still and most likely will be for a while Intel Core 2 Dup. So It does have a nice Intel chip. But like I said, nothing here has changed. Well, I guess I won't bore you with the rest of the stuff because it is all the same. The Graphocs card, the keyboard, and the shell. So I guess that now I will move onto my thoughts about the upgrades. 

Well, I think that it is kinda weird that Apple would put in a 2.13 GHz Processor in. Is that really a big diffrence to a lot of people. Just .13 GHz? Well, I guess what's done is done. Right? But pretty much that was the upgrade. I really didn't expect that much considering they have new Macbooks out but still, for it to have the same price of $999 and to be a little better than before is really cool for Apple to do. Who knows, this might make sales go up a little bit? Would you buy it? I think if I already had an iMac, I would deffinatly go for it. Thanks,PatrickTwitter

Handbrake is a Free application that is for both Mac and Pc.  Handbrake allows the user to Rip DVD's to  your computer, with multiple advanced setting for quality and audio.  Although you should not use this program to burn movies that are not yours, because that is illegal, and no one ever dose that (ya right).  A normal file will be around 1-3 GB depending on your video length and quality.  One advantage of the newer version of this program, is that your able to have chapters.  Having chapters allows you to navigate the who dvd, like you would if you were watching it on the t.v.


Coming Soon!!!  This file is available for download in the Files section in the top right.  Although the Windows version URL will be include under the Mac version file.

Lately there has been rumors going around in Mac|Life and Mac Rumors about something from Apple called the Apple "TriBook". So in this blog post, I'm just going to be going over the future Apple laptop.

At first glance the Apple Tribook isn't as appealing as other MacBooks such as the Air. But once you get used to it the Apple Tribook is an amazing laptop. It is a mere 6.75 inches deep, 10 inches wide and about an inch tall. So as you can tell, this is a very sleek laptop. It easily can fit into any laptop bag. But, while design and portability are both very nice and helpful for people on the go, it's typically archived at the expensive top of the line such as the MacBook Air was when it was released. 

One of the first things that you will notice about the Apple Tribook is that it actually has three monitors built into the laptop itself. When you close the laptop, the neatly fold together and look much like any Mac laptop would look like. When you unfold the laptop (open it), you can use all three screens, kinda like dual monitors but more like triple monitors. So for an example that is used in a picture in MacLife, you could have Safari open on the main screen, iChat/Skype open on the left side monitor, and itunes/quicktime open on the right hand side. 

Speaking of hands, the Apple Tribook's track pad takes up the whole bottom of the laptop. Yeah, you thought that the unibody MacBooks had big trackpads? Well, think again.  MacLife calls this new trackpad design, " With more gesture support than previously imaginable, the extrawide touch pad comes in well, ""handy"." Oh yes, I am sorry, I called it a trackpad, well much like the new MacBooks it is a full touch pad. 

In MacLife magazine they say the following.

Now, we could claim that the triBook is Apple’s much-anticipated entry into the “netbook” market, but using the term netbook doesn’t do the machine justice. Netbooks are teeny, tiny notebooks stuffed with underpowered parts, including the most insubstantial of screens. In other words, they’re imminently portable, but really only good for surfing webpages and typing out email." I have to say, I think that this may be Apple's new NetBook.

So, this is Apple's new laptop, The Apple TriBook...

Tweetie, was released on April 20 2009, as a new Twitter client.  This new client allows the users, to do everything they have come to love with the other twitter clients, and more.  Here you can respond, RT (re tweet) search for tweets, view your personal messages.  Being released only a couple hours ago, they have not had a changes to work out all the bugs, which i have noticed None of them yet, but am sure there might be a few, like all programs do.  One of the downfalls in this client is when sending a message, i find it more difficult, than with Twitterrific.  Here you have to click a Button, in the bottom left, and type then manually click "post" not "enter".  Overall i love this new program and you can download it from my "Files" tab, or here is the website URL.  A cost of $14.95 to disable Advertisements.
