Nemo Memo
WiebeTech’s 1.8 Inch Toshiba Hard Drive Combo Dock Adapters for Instant iPod Data Recovery



That 4th generation iPod uses a 1.8-inch Toshiba drive, so you’d want the ADAv4-18-TOSH. Some later iPods use a 1.8-inch Toshiba ZIF drive, which uses a different interface. In that case, you’d need ADAv4-18-TOSH-ZIF.

Using iWeb 08
Part 1

Most people who own Macs these days are using some version of OS X. If their Mac is of a relatively recent vintage, they probably also have a copy of Apple’s iLife. I won’t bother to explain what iLife is, you either have it or you don’t. Apple’s iLife 06 is the version that brought one new application that has wormed its way into my heart; iWeb.

Photoshop Lightroom Adventure
Book Review


All the current spade of books about Lightroom explain the use of the software in similar ways. There’s not very many unique ways explain how to use the features of a software application. But what makes Mikkel’s book stand out is that it comes out of a project in which he and 11 of his photography colleagues, plus five Adobe Lightroom team members, traveled for a photography expedition in Iceland and used the early beta versions of Lightroom to post-process their work.
