                    Microsoft Keeps Plugging Away

                    Microsoft release the next Zune to very little fanfare compared with what Jobs generated with even the most recent iPod refresh. For all the crap Microsoft took over the Zune ("oh look! it comes in brown!"), you have to admire the perseverance. The fact is that this is how Microsoft wins lots of battles: "release, watch, redesign, lather, repeat." Office, Outlook/Exchange, and the XBox are all examples of Microsoft powerhouses that were less than exciting in version one. Heck, can you remember Windows 1.0? What a dog. Microsoft has the affluence and smarts to have a long range attitude

                    iPod Silence is Disconcerting

                    I've got a weird problem with my iPod. It won't play music, podcasts, or anything else I load on it. It's making sound--you can hear the clicks in the head phones. And it thinks it's playing the display shows the song dutifully playing with the progress bar moving along. I can even feel the hard drive spinning up as it starts to play. But no sound comes out. I've checked the volume and looked through the settings. I've restarted the iPod. I've even restored it to factory defaults and reloaded everything. Nothing works. Given that it makes sounds for

                    Banning iPods

                    If you haven't seen this yet, get ready to shake your head. New York is considering banning iPods in crosswalks.

                    TiVo and the iPod on OS X

                    Getting video from your TiVo to a iPod isn't as hard as it used to be. This hack shows how to do it all on the Mac and have it scheduled to run automatically.

                    Perverse Progress

                    Lessig has another great essay on what he calls "a costly addiction." My favorite quote: [I]t takes an extraordinarily perverse view of progress to think that protecting the past is the best path to the future. From Wired 14.11: PostsReferenced Mon Nov 20 2006 13:54:58 GMT-0700 (MST) And as a bonus, be sure to read Steven Levy's article on the iPod. He is such a great writer. He describes showing the iPod to Bill Gates the day after Jobs announced it: I brought along my new iPod. At the end of the meal, just as the other guests at

                    EyeTV Hybrid for Macs

                    A week or so ago, I picked up one of these EyeTV hybrids, a little device that has a USB connector on one end and a cable connector on the other. Plug it into your computer, connect up the cable and you're watching TV. There's an online program guide so you can schedule recordings of upcoming shows--just like TiVo. The device works with the Apple remote that comes with the new iMacs, Minis, and MacBooks. The best part is that it can automatically takes things you record and put them on your iPod (or at least into iTunes, to

                    TubeSock: In Honor of YouTube

                    In honor of the acquisition of YouTube by Google (which I wrote about on Between the Lines), the app of the day is TubeSock. Tube Sock grabs YouTube video and converts it to run on your iPod or PSP. Now you can take the insanity with you where ever you are and make archives of your favorites. Enjoy...

                    A Non-Working Automator Script for iPod Audiobooks

                    I've been working on an Automator script for converting podcasts into something that my iPod will recognize as an audiobook (and thus let me control the speed of playback). I've been using the script that Dave left in the comments to my post on speeding up podcasts as a model. So far, no luck. The script (see PDF) runs and seems to do what it's supposed to (no errors), but the M4B files it produces aren't recognized by my iPod as audiobooks. My script isn't exactly like Dave's because I've played around trying to get things to work. I'm

                    Speeding Up Podcasts

                    As you can imagine, I listen to a lot of podcasts. I listen to everything on IT Conversations, sometimes multiple times as it comes to production, I subscribe to a few other podcasts, and I review audio for inclusion on IT Conversations. One trick that helps, particularly with reviews, is speeding up the audio. As far as I've been able to tell, there's no convenient slider bar for speeding up audio in iTunes. But, you can easily use Quicktime to get the same effect: Right-click the show in iTunes and choose "Show song file." Open the selected song file

                    DRM, TiVo, and the iPod

                    I put a little piece at Between the Lines on TiVo's announcement that they future versions of TiVoToGo will have support for creating iPod ready video. While you're there, check out David Berlind's article on Sony and DRM. Apparently Sony is rethinking DRM as a strategy. In related news, the rootkit and other CD DRM techniques can be defeated by scotch tape. Cool.

                    Using VLC to Create iPod Ready Video

                    A few days ago I wrote about using VLC to turn MPEG2 video from the Tivo into something that will work on your iPod. I had some funny problems with the aspect ratio and the GUI-based approach is fine for a single video, but it's time consuming since each conversion takes near real-time (i.e. one our of video takes a little more than one hour to transcode to MPEG4). Well, there's a better way. VLC has a command line interface and it works lovely. Not only can you run the command on multiple files in batch mode, but you

                    Video Podcasting Talks

                    I want to be able to easily take a Powerpoint or Keynote deck and an audio file (MP3), sync them and turn them into an MP4. Can I use iMovie to do this?

                    Video iPod and Tivo

                    Friday I picked up a new iPod (60Gb, Black). I spent the weekend figuring out how to get video onto it from my Tivo, DVDs, etc. Here's what I've discovered, so far: As I posted the other day, it's easy to download programs from your Tivo to your desktop. What isn't easy, on a Mac, is converting the shows to MPEG2 from the wrapper that Tivo puts them in. As I said in the earlier post DirectShop Dump will do that on a PC. You have to install the Tivo Desktop Connection first. I happen to have Virtual PC
