A reader calling himself Apple Engineer writes: As some users, I have had the misfortune of having PowerBooks (Firewire’s as well as Lombards) come in for repair with smashed screens.

I have had to turn away customers because as I was told only apple could fix/replace the LCD panel inside these ‘Books… Until now. I’ve found something very interesting that will surely get up Apple’s nose. Apple states that you can only use LG or Samsung panels. Not true.

As listed on 2-POP:

I’d just like to let everyone know that the team around here at dMedia in Tennessee has just completed work on all of the concert visuals for Creed’s new world tour. More to the point of this 2-pop board, and far less patting on back, it was all completed with FCP3 in OSX!

In just over 3 weeks we completed about 1hour and 10 minutes of visuals with many of the composites and ALL of the color correction done in FCP3.

Universal Music Group Boycott

I’m writing to let you know about Universal Music Group’s (UMG) new copy protection scheme for compact discs.

UMG has chosen to take the low road in the fight against music piracy by instituting a troublesome, technically immature copy-protection scheme on select UMG compact discs.

The problem with UMG’s approach is that it disallows the ‘fair use’ of UMG’s copyrighted work. Because the CDs can’t be copied or backed up to a computer hard disk, people who purchase UMG compact discs can’t make a copy of the music they’ve paid for – they must lug around the CD everywhere they go instead of making a legal copy of the music for easy portability. People with notebook computers or .mp3 players won’t be able to take their music along in a more portable form – ever.
