a note to all those people updating to iOS v5

there is one thing to remember if you are having issues installing the iOS update on your iPhone or iPad.

YOU MUST LOGIN to iTunes after updating the iTunes App to 10.5 and before you update your devices!

Otherwise the iOS will reject installing the update because it cannot guarantee that your device is verified with that account.

If FCPX was beta tested like the iPhone

Since Apple seems to be using lost iPhones as part of their beta testing program, I am longing to wonder what would have happened had they lost a beta copy of FCPX in a bar in Hollywood?

Macworld Day One - Take 2 OMFG!!!

to all of the nay sayers, this Macworld, while with a smaller number of vendors than the early years is a hit. The show floor is absolutely packed with people, to the point where I decided to step back and take a look as some of the cool things I have already seen amid the chaos.

One thing to the iApps developers- get off your butts and talk to people, I walked thru the area just prior to the shows "official" start time and of the 60 or so developers only 2 responded to my inquiries So here we go on the cool stuff to see.

First on my list -, for those of us that live and work in places that require that you wear gloves( or if you are stranded in the mid-atlantic states) this very cool product is literally a pair of gloves that allow you to manipulate any touch sensitive device without removing your gloves and for $15 USD a very very cool product.

TypeDNA- for the people that have a bunch of Fonts but are tired of dealing with the WYSIWYG menus, TypeDNA a plugin for Photoshop, AI and Indesign, that allows you to easily search between style or groups, down to the level to of " what goes with Zapf dingbats" and a selection appears within the Plugin Panel.- very cool

CarMD an electronic tool that plugs in to your cars diagnostic port and gives analysis of what / how your engine / electronics are running.

iBone- (stop laughing) the first interactive Trombone app, Ok for those of you that like Ocarina, iBone is a totally interactive teaching and training tool for aspiring trombone players- very cool and only 2.99 at the iTunes store

Heading to Macworld Slowly.


this looks like its going to be my last MWSF. As a member of the working press (I write for Macworld LLC and Creative Cow), 90% of the advance PR info I have received has been ipod or iphone related. While not bad, not really worth my time to spend a week in SF looking for something to talk about. I am however looking forward to a hands on with an iPad.

It will be good to catch up with the few of you that will be at Moscone, if you see me say Hi.

Otherwise I will send snippets from the show while I am there.

Join industry geek Gary Adcock as he explores the world and technology as it relates to Film and Video production. I am also a Glass artist, so I spend my free time creating art from silica and fire when I am not cooking.
