is back from being ill but it doesn’t seem to make things easier for Gaz. It starts off a little rough (but Guy doesn’t edit it out because it’s funny) and gets crazy from there. Gaz thinks he may still need an AppleTV and Guy builds a RAID 1 for his iTunes content. Are Netbooks getting killed by the iPad or are they victims of their own crappiness? Android tablets are on the way (eventually), but should Apple be concerned? Would you be interested in a smartphone app that helps you through a museum, art gallery, or other attractions? The Eiffel Tower rents out iPads to do just that. Microsoft is finally putting out Windows Phone 7, some three years after the iPhone.

A Tale of Two Video Capture Utilities

On March 29, 2006, in Review, by Donny Yankellow

Company: Mien Software

Price: $20

Company: Ambrosia Software

Price: $69.00

I get phone calls and emails from family and friends all of the time asking “How do I…on the computer?” I do the best I can to walk them through it, or I might email them one of my Macspiration articles. Most of the time, I end up going to that person’s house and showing him/her what to do in person. In the winter, I can’t really go down to Florida on a moment’s notice and help my grandmother when she is on her annual trip south. Wouldn’t it be nice to send my grandmother, and my other family and friends, a video to show them how to solve their Mac problem, without leaving the house?

Mars Rising 1.0

With that idea in mind, we’ve decided to showcase two games that also follow that idea. Mars Rising, from Ambrosia Software, and Project Magellan, from Plaid World, are both awesome scrolling space shoot-em-ups with nothing but fun in mind. There are no mazes and maps to worry about, no puzzles to figure out before you can advance to the next level, and certainly no brain teasers. Just fly your ship and blast everything in sight. These games have a fun factor of 100%, too, so disengage your brain and enjoy!

Adam: Wow Mike, you really said it all there! So, no reason to ramble. Here we go…
