Finally, a New iPod Video




No need to say anything more...a New iPod..........

Check out the podcast tommorow on the one more thing event...in fact it is loads of things

Rumour: New iPod revealed?


Photo of the new ipod?? Wider screen and some new functions.

New iPod released in an hour time?




iLounge.com sent a new ipod advertisment (poster) which was found outside the San Jose theatre. An ipod with a wider screen and the headphone jack is on the right. It also looks bigger than the present ipods. Is it the video ipod?? mmm....

In an hour time....

Curtain rising in 3 hours...


Video Ipod? Pink Nano? New Mac? New powerbook? Apple buying over Microsoft? (no offence)

Expectations have been made. Hopes have been made. 3 more hours before one more thing is highlighted in San Jose. Will Apple produce something amazing or it will be just a tiny change to an old device...We shall see.....

Having language problems?



Having language problems? Need translating? Don't bother to get an expensive translator device?

Well, here is the solution. A website called www.freetranslation.com features free translating service. It can translate for 10 languages, from Dutch to Chinese. Isn't it cool? Just select the language you want to translate (eg. Russian to English) and type/copy the text you don't understand. Press 'Free translation' and Done! You get the full text translated instantly!

However, this translation service is only 95% accurate. Sometimes there are some minor problems with the sentence structure. Beside that, the vocaburary might not be the exact one you're looking for. However, it does provides clear translation most of the times so you don't have to worry.

Now is the rating time...and i give this website 8/10

If you have a large amount of text to be translated 100% accurately, check out the human translation and it takes about a few days to be sent back to you.

Why did Apple decide to introduce iPod Nano?


Have you ever wondered why Apple decided to introduce an iPod Nano? There must be a reason for Apple to produce something which is soo tiny and it is able to contain 1000 songs!


Well, I found the answer when i saw this advertisment.

Click this link to watch (takes 2 minute to load):

(BEWARE: You might laugh your head off... =p )

2 more Days to Apple Media Event


So excited...48 hours left to the One more thing...

Hope it will be a good one more thing...


(No idea of the media event, read the first article below)

PodUtil - Syncs your songs from your iPod to your PC/Mac


Looking at the forums at apple discussions, many people lost their songs on the computer (the hard drive crashed, the computer was stolen, etc.) and they were unable to dock their ipod back into their computer, otherwise the songs on the ipod will be gone. Well, this program is the solution. PodUtil is a free software (http://www.kennettnet.co.uk/software/download.php) which enables ipod users to sync all of their songs from the ipod back into the computer. Cool, isn't it? That means you can borrow your friend's ipod and sync all their songs to your computer. (shhh...it might be 'illegal' anyway...)


The speed of the transfer is really fast and it enables the users to choose the folder which it will contain the songs. (It will be real cool if they can sync the songs to iTunes straight away...)

The layout of the program is very neat and simple. You get the playlists on your ipod on the left. When you decide to choose which playlists, the songs on the playlists will appear on the right. Tick the boxes of the individual songs you want to sync or you can 'Shift + click on one box' to sync all of the songs. Then, click the 'copy' button below and DONE!

You will be able to download this program on http://www.kennettnet.co.uk/software/download.php.

Hope this program will be useful to you and do leave any comments of the programs on the blog.

Apple Media Event on 12th October


Well, bet everyone has heard about the special media event held by Apple in San Jose. Invitations were sent to the media press with the word 'One More Thing...'.

So what is the One More Thing?

We shall wait and see on Wednesday. However, predictions and rumours had been made.


1) A Video Ipod - The new ipod which everyone has been waiting for. Will the dream come true? Although Steve Jobs said that apple do not plan to make a video ipod just yet. Will he change his mind? I hope so.

- This photo was claimed to be taken by someone who saw the 'real' ipod video. True?




2)
A ipod based on another singer/band - Rumour saying that an new ipod based on another singer or band will be introduced on wednesday. Another rumour says that a pink ipod nano will be introduced which is based on Madonna. Anyone interested? lol

Last time, it was Ipod U2. Now it is time for Madonna. Good idea? ->





3)
iPhone - This rumour is unlikely to be true. However, apple is never predictable. Will Apple produce a new iPhone to replace the ridiculous Motorola itunes phone? I will be happy to see that. =p

<- Iphone? I am sure apple will come up with a MUCH MUCH better design than Motorola's



4)
A thinner ipod with Toshiba 80 gigabyte hardrive - Some websites predict that the new ipod will consist of the Toshiba 80 GB hardrive which allows the ipod to be several millimeters thinner. It sounds good to me...but isn't 80 GB too much?


5)
New computer from Apple - Improved Macs or Powerbooks were predicted to be introduced on Wednesday. My friend thinks that a new Mac mini will be produced as he saw prices of the old mac mini dropping. Well, it sounds possible. Who knows?

New Mac Mini? Even Smaller? ->


6)
iCamera - For myself, i think apple might introduce a camera because thats the product they are missing. Due to the pressence of the iSight, i think it will be good for apple to produce a brand new camera!
