Crackworld - I mean, MacHypeFest & IsolationPod love-in

At MacWorld, Jobs intro'd new Macs running on Intel chips. Yawn. They run fast, and basically look the same. The only thing about it for me is it makes my 2005 Powerbook into an old piece of shit. One thing that blew me away is how few Mac users use any KB shortcuts.

Some other goodies at the event, like new software & toys. Waaaay too much IPod garbage. One cool gadget was the ISee which turns your Ipod (any kind) into a small TV & VCR -- can record from Audio-IN's and also output. Rate was approx 400megs per hour.

Jeff G renamed the Ipod as ISOLATION POD. I freakin' love that! I always called 'em I-am-a-Pod, which sorta works, too. What they are is MONEYMAKERs!! Anyway...

I bought an Oxygen 8 from the Guitar Ctr booth to replace my aging & large Alesis keyboard. Had problems with latency on the PC, I bet the Mac is faster.

Getting better at Ableton Live, so might as well have a good trigger. Have to learn some more advanced Mac sound editing software.

Plus have the evolution U-16. Would've preferred the newer 'X' version (of course), but it's a good box. Highly rec a midi-knob box messing w/Midi automation in music software.

REKZ, thanks for the cred on iPod. But not necessary. I am just an assemblage of the always already. I am merely words wording.

I like the "Isolation Pod" translation. Also, I like my iPod very much, it comes in handy when I'm on crowded muni cars and would rather be isolated. Those white earplugs protect me from most unwanted attention from strangers.
