I was really excited when my iPhoto hard-bound album arrived today. I couldn’t wait to get one so I had it express shipped. I submitted it Tuesday night, and it shipped on Friday via FedEx. So, I opened it up and started examining my 17 page, storybook layout, iPhoto album. I chose pictures of my friend’s band L.U.V. and made a little story about their progression through the last year or so. Here are my thoughts about my experience using iPhoto to create my first photo album.
If you are an iPod user, you have probably been amazed at how this little cigarette pack size device has affected you. I’ve stumbled upon an inexpensive and incredibly useful add-on that enables the iPod to broadcast to a nearby car or home stereo system without cables or wires, with full stereo sound. It is called the iRock Wireless Music Adapter (Model 300W) and I found it at CompUSA selling for US$29.95. Their Web site is www.myirock.com.
This is a solution I want to share with all you iPhoto fans for the storage problem.

In a dramatic moment on Monday, Steve Jobs announced “it’s time”: OS X will boot by default on all new shipping systems (though OS 9 will remain on the drive). While OS X demos in July were an opportunity for many to snooze, this year they demonstrated with palpable excitement why we use Macs — even why we use computers — from visual expression to mathematical modeling to games to making Hollywood blockbusters — all made more powerful and better-looking on X. And the drama over Photoshop’s late arrival on the new OS has gotten more melodramatic than ever.
