This Apple really is for the teacher (and students) (

Apr 25th 2010 2:32PM A $50 discount? Come on Apple, that's insulting. That's like giving somebody ten cents off a tank of gas and expecting that to be an incentive to pay a higher price for your premium gas.

The convenience of this is obviously great but isn't this going to be way more expensive than just buying books? Not to mention the replacement coat of all the lost and broken ones. And why pay this much money for an oversized iPod. Why not just give the students laptops for the same price? Then they could do their homework on it too and all their research.

Of u really want to give the kids giant iPods, why not give them regular sized iPods instead for less than half the cost?

Obviously somebody in the administration is a little caught up in the Apple hype machine. I love my Macs but god I hate Apple.

Dropbox for Android is coming: first screenshots (Download Squad)

Mar 22nd 2010 7:06PM What about a WebOS client? The Pre is made for this kind of thing. So is Windows Mobile for that matter. And Blackberry.

Win a bag of CES swag! (Engadget)

Jan 20th 2009 12:43AM I should win one because all my life I've wanted to go to CES. This year I finally work in the industry to I could go. I thought my company was gonna send me but they didn't so I was determined to go and I was going to borrow the money. But in the end I decided not to go because if I had, I wouldn't have had much money to give my family a good Christmas. So I sacrificed something I've always wanted so I could give more to my son and my family. The ironic thing is, everybody got what they really wanted for Christmas but me. I made the biggest sacrifice and was the only one who didn't benefit from it.

AlertThingy 2 adds support for Facebook, Flickr, more services (Download Squad)

Jan 3rd 2009 6:38AM Might as well just use both. I like Twhirl better so far but it doesn't have Facebook support or RSS feeds. So a combination of the two will make one very useful offspring.

Voila for Mac is a full-featured screenshot app (Download Squad)

Dec 22nd 2008 7:58PM Skitch also handles the resizing problem you mentioned and it's free. You don't have to win a license. It hosts the images for you and gives you your own web page to give out with all your public clippings. And it's just a fun interface. I find myself looking for things to clip with it. Everything is done by drag and drop. Drag the window to your email client to send it, drag to an IM, drag to Finder to save the file, etc. You can save in a variety of formats and you resize the image just by resizing the Skitch window. I love Skitch. There's nothing else like it.

ON WINDOWS: Wisdom Screen Hunter is just as good as Snagit and it's free. Snagit is a 30 day trial. You can also use another free app called Windows Media Encoder to take video screen grabs, or broadcast your screen. Go to this URL for a tutorial I made for it, which includes a download link:

I have found a Mac app that will let me take video of my screen. Anybody know of one?

Black Friday Giveaways (part 4): Archos 5 and DVR Station (Engadget)

Nov 29th 2008 1:22AM This beautiful thing is gadget geek nirvana.

Open source Synkron does killer cross-platform synchronization (Download Squad)

Oct 7th 2008 10:22PM So..what exactly does this app do? I don't understand. It's syncing what with what? Can I use it to sync files between my Mac and Windows partitions and use it as a cloud?

How would you change Nokia's E71? (Engadget)

Aug 22nd 2008 7:28PM Well if YOU'VE never heard of it, the rest of us don't need to bother cause it's obviously not popular and no good at all if you haven't seen one before. That was valuable information, thanks for sharing.

Video: HTC's Touch Diamond / Pro are multi-touch gods, just not how you'd think (Engadget)

Aug 20th 2008 10:41PM I just want a phone that does all the little meaningless things that make biPhone users think they're so cool because their stupid inadequate overpriced disappointment phone can do: like multi-touch, capacitive touchscreen and screen view that automatically flips to landscape when you rotate the phone. Finally a phone that really does do EVERYTHING the iPhone does and more and does it better. There will be a version of it on every carrier too so everyone can have one. They have a very serious shot at taking up the market that Apple can't touch which should at least let this phone equal biPhone sales, if not surpass it.
