Apple comes to MACNJ

  1. 1. MACNJ Serving the Central New Jersey Macintosh Community since 1986 March 2008 Apple comes to MACNJ By Bill Barr, Program Chair New to the Mac? Thinking about getting a Mac? You’ll really like MACNJ. Presentations amaze and entertain We are pleased to welcome Apple Senior Systems Engineer and all around good guy, Dave Marra, to the March meeting. Dave’s dynamic presentations amaze and entertain. “How’d he do that?” is the question for which Dave always has the answer. Put March 8th on your calendar! We never know exactly what he’ll bring, but it’s always something really neat. When Dave Marra is at MACNJ, we pretty much turn the show over to him. There will be a brief Q&A and we’ll break for the 50/50. Dave has the floor otherwise. Bring your questions. In fact, we’ve already had one question answered. We forwarded a question from the bulletin board to Dave. It goes like this - Question - I keep reading how the Mac OS is due for its share of viruses, malware etc. Maybe we could get Dave Marra to frustrating for the legions of hackers that are exhaustively address this issue at our next meeting. At least he might be trying to do it. able to direct us to some good protective software. People think that, just because the Mac has lower Dave answers - We hear that same “security through market-share, that no one is interested in hacking it. The obscurity” argument all the time, and quite frankly, it is reality is, in its heyday, Mac OS 9 had over 40 known viruses understandable why people might believe it. and a MUCH smaller market-share than Mac OS X and, as of today, there are zero known viruses, in the wild, for Mac The truth is that Mac OS X was designed from the very OS X. Simple. beginning--with its rock-solid, extremely well-tested UNIX foundation--to provide the absolute highest levels of security. You can see more about Dave at his website - Marrathon.

Apple has now passed new 2GB model lets music lovers bring even more songs along some of their savings to those looking for an iPod everywhere they go in the impossibly small iPod shuffle.” shuffle by dropping the price of the 1 GB model from $79 down to $49. Simultaneously, Apple announced the What’s this? The iPod shuffle is “impossibly small?” Come release of a 2 GB iPod shuffle, to be priced at $69 when now. “Impossibly small” means that you worry about it ships later this month. With prices dropping at this rate, accidentally inhaling, that Apple has to use magnification a 1 GB iPod shuffle will appear in cereal boxes within a in product shots, and that it’s impossible to imagine Apple few years. releasing another iPod that’s even smaller. Is it painfully obvious that I’m really stretching here? I thought so. Most affordable iPod ever With news like this and Apple’s announcement of a pink Seriously, thanks for the price drop and the 2 GB model, iPod nano (see “Apple Ships Pink iPod nano, Apologizes Greg. But I’m still betting that Apple releases an even to Tonya,” 2008-01-22), it’s hard to do more than state the smaller iPod within a few years. facts, so let’s once again peer closely at Apple VP Greg Joswiak’s quote in Apple’s press release. He said, “At just ©TidBITS 2008 $49, the iPod shuffle is the most affordable iPod ever. The MACNJ Dues Reminder Please remember to bring your dues for 2008 this month; or send them to Graham Curtis, Treasurer, now.

  3. 3. Macintosh Association of Central New Jersey March 2008 Extend iTunes Movie Rentals Beyond 24 Hours by Mark Boszko First, a quick summary of Apple’s new movie rental option available on the iTunes Store (see “iTunes Movie Rentals and Apple TV, Take 2,” 2008-01-15). The movie rental experience is good, even without an Apple TV. Of course the resolution isn’t HD, though it is slightly above DVD standards by pixel size - 933 by 470 pixels for the particular film I watched, all picture and no black bars. Unfortunately, that’s offset by the highly compressed low-data-rate H.264 codec, and the movie looked a bit soft for the resolution. (I’d still like to know just why we non-Apple TV owners are snubbed on the HD point, but I’m betting on it being a perceived piracy risk on the part of the studios.) However, the rental process itself is painless and your time remaining before the expiration is clearly laid out in the Rented Movies section of iTunes. movie, and once you’ve started, you get to keep watching Transfer back and forth to portable devices (at least with it until it’s done? Does it expire if you pause it in the middle the iPhone I tested) is also clearly laid out in the Movies or try to rewind? These are all good questions. But let’s see tab of your media sync preferences for the portable device. if it lets me watch all the way to the end first... The only pain experienced is waiting for a roughly 1 GB file to copy over USB, even when you’re transferring back to Awesome. I was able to watch all the way to the end, credits your Mac from the portable device. and all, and then it stopped on the black screen as usual, with no alerts of any sort. Once I pressed Escape to leave Full screen mode full screen mode, I was greeted with this dialog, warning The one exception to ease of use would be that you can’t me that if I didn’t resume watching, the movie would be get to your rentals from Front Row - you must play them deleted. In other words, I was easily able to finish watching from iTunes and swap into full screen mode by pressing the movie even though doing so put the total time beyond Command-F if you want a big screen experience from your the 24-hour window. Mac mini jukebox. Then, at the end of the movie, iTunes doesn’t kick you out of full screen mode either - it just sits there on the post-credit black screen until you press Escape to switch back to a normal window, but that’s a trivial complaint. Looking through the Rental Window -- I’ve heard several people complain that they need at least a 27-hour window to account for starting a rented movie at 9 PM one evening, then having to pause it to deal with some interruption (like kids or the need for sleep), only to come With another movie, I tested the question of whether back at 9 PM the next night and be out of luck because the you could pause an in-progress movie and then resume rental has expired. To test this concern, I started watching a watching after the 24-hour rental window had closed. rental movie for a second time with only about 30 minutes It turns out that so long as you pause before the rental left in the 24-hour rental window.

When it’s done, though, it’s really done, and One might assume this would also apply to other iPod/ iTunes deletes the file. iPhone models, although I’ve heard that the reason movie rentals aren’t supported on 5G iPods is that it’s possible to reset their clocks in such a way as to prolong rentals (something that reportedly doesn’t work in iTunes). The upshot of all this would seem to be that Apple is trying hard to provide a reasonable user experience, even while meeting the desire to limit the time in which a rental can be watched, presumably something that was necessary to get the studios to license their content for viewing in If you attempt to pause again after the expiration time iTunes.

  5. 5. Macintosh Association of Central New Jersey March 2008 Switching to the Mac for Dummies Book Review by Dave Greenbaum Originally published and written for the Lawrence Apple from either Mac to PC or PC to Mac they are most Users’ Group 2.0 http:// www.laugks.org/news and concerned about their data (including pictures and music), published by the author at http://www.clickheretech.com. their emails and address book, and their favorites. Reinhold comes up with rather elaborate Rube Goldbergesque style Switching to a Mac For Dummies - NOT a help ways of moving the information, but way beyond the to your PC friends skills (or budgets) of the average switcher. He also fails to I have a traditional love/hate relationship with Dummies cover how to convert email from PC to Mac, which is a top books. When I am truly a dummy in the subject, I like their question for switchers. broad overviews. “Switching to the Mac for Dummies” is a new title for the Dummies series and is the first Dummies Horribly disorganized book by author Arnold Renhold. Generally Dummies books Those topics Reinhold covers well are horribly disorganized are designed to give you the information you need in a and hardto follow with few, if any, illustrations or screen lighthearted way so that the reader doesn’t feel intimidated shots. You simply have to take his word for what he’s or overwhelmed. saying and use your imagination. I asked typical “How do I?” question on the Mac and none were covered. A new Overwhelming yet inadequate PC user might be calling Microsoft after reading this book I’m not sure what mark Reinhold was shooting for but he asking for reconciliation. clearly missed it. The book is overwhelming yet inadequate and in some places just wrong! As an example, Reinhold Sorry for such a harsh review. I’m sure Reinhold knows his said you can’t run Appleworks on newer Macs. That is stuff and was simply trying to be helpful. Switching is a simply untrue. But why would someone switching to the relatively new topic. Apple had to make a Newton before Mac ever care about older version of Appleworks? Based it could make the iPhone and I’m sure version 2.0 of this on the contents of the book, it was more akin to “New book will be much better. Skip this one though. Macs for Dummies” Reinhold covered PC to Mac issues as . well as Mac to Mac issues. While that’s nice, why would a Pros: Interesting for trivia buffs, might increase Windows PC user need that info? It creates an information overflow sales and Apple returns. that makes the book harder to read and confusing for new Mac users. Cons: Disorganized, inconsistent coverage. Hard to read and follow. While I realized Reinhold did not intend the book to be funny, I had to laugh at some of the topics he covered. Two out of Five DogCows Few users switching to the Mac need to know that back in the 1980s some PCs used MicroChannel Architectures (MCA) and Macs used NuBus. This minutae reminds me of the sketch on Airplane when the air traffic controller is asked how we got into this crisis, and he starts talking about dinosaurs creating oil and people buying expensive cars. Funny on a big screen, but not for a dummies book. That’s just an example of the massive overkill of useless information. Is the author prepping people for an appearance on a trivia show? Too much information isn’t that bad so long as critical information is included and Reinhold simply failed to deliver on criticalinformation. In particular I am comparing his book to the Missing Manual series of the same title and the Dummies version seems like a really poor rough draft of the Missing Manual.

  6. 6. Macintosh Association of Central New Jersey March 2008 February Meeting Notes by Xochitl Barnes David opened the meeting by explaining that since we did not get to go to the Photoshop seminar that we had discussed last time, we will be learning about the new PhotoShop Elements 6. He also mentioned next month’s visit from Dave Marra. We are all looking forward to that! David talked about upgrading to Leopard and being aware of any potential problems that might exist. He said he checks on line to see if anyone is having trouble and his final advice..”upgrade cautiously!” He also encouraged us to “back up!... preferably to an external HD” Chod Lang said he prefers to back up to . DVDs since external HDs can fail as well. An interesting and informative discussion about the pros and cons of different methods of back- up and storing information followed. There was a short Q and A. David showed a video about the latest version of PhotoShop Elements 6, coming in the Spring. Very impressive! After the break we talked about iWorks and David did a great presentation on “Keynote” including “Pages and iWorks new “Numbers” module. There was plenty of great information to be had and a lot to learn at the meeting this month!
