Apple TV review (Engadget)

Apr 6th 2007 6:10AM I agree. This is the only drawback of XBox/XBMC. No other media center comes close in my view and all for less than £100

How to buy HDMI cables... (The Jason Calacanis Weblog)

Jan 15th 2007 5:59PM Don't fall for the trap of buying expensive cables, I did before I put my sensible head on. It's digital so it makes no difference.

You could use a coat-hanger and the picture would be the same, if you could get the ends lined up..not quite, but you should get the point!

Am I throwing away $100k!?!? (The Jason Calacanis Weblog)

Jan 10th 2007 4:43AM I wish I got $25 per thousand pages :-(

I applaud your efforts, and no-one will ever be able to question your independence that way.

Wikipedia should do the same and give the money to charity.....I have the same beef with the BBC in the UK, as they have one of the top 10 sites.

Jan 5th 2007 1:57PM I agree with Phil. Even though it's supposed to be loseless my mp3s sounded flat. I think the problem is in the mind though.

How to fix your iTunes artwork (Download Squad)

Dec 3rd 2006 2:02PM Actually Jeff I'm right. If you let iTunes add the art it doesn't add it to the tag. But, if you add the art yourself via iTunes then yes it does add it to the tag.

Earth to consumers: extended warranties are a bad deal (Engadget)

Dec 1st 2006 2:26PM I read something in the summer about insurance that tells you when to buy it. Basically, you should only buy insurance if you can't afford to replace the product if it breaks as a policy is priced in favour of the provider.

so if you can afford to replace the HDTV if it breaks, then don't buy insurance as the odds are you won't need it.

How to fix your iTunes artwork (Download Squad)

Dec 1st 2006 10:34AM I wouldn't recommend doing using iTunes to add/manage artwork as it only adds the artwork to it's own database, and not to the actual mp3 itself.

This will cause users problems further down the road if they switch to another mp3 player (zune maybe?) or if they want to use another media player like WMP11.

Adding the art via another app is advisable:
