Win a LaCie Rugged and iPod nano from PowerMax

Dec 11th 2008 5:32PM Sorry, I forgot to mention that the last disc I burned was a Johnny Cash greatest hits playlist for a co-worker.

Dec 11th 2008 3:20PM I would use the hard drive to back up my home movies!

UCLA QB Ben Olson's Foot Hates Football

Aug 11th 2008 1:50AM I'm a Trojan fan so I have no love for the bRuins but it's pretty cold to "laugh until our ribs shatter" over a 25 year old kid breaking his foot, even if it does seem to keep happening to these guys. Not cool.

Getting DVD movies on your iPod touch and iPhone

Feb 21st 2008 11:43AM I'm using a 1GHz G4 Powerbook which is much older than what many have mentioned you're using but it still takes Handbrake 3x as long as Instant Handbrake to rip the same DVD. Thanks everyone for the suggestions to turn off 2-pass encoding and H.264. I'll have to try that tonight and tweak some of the other settings to see if it speeds the process up a little bit.

Getting DVD movies on your iPod touch and iPhone

Feb 21st 2008 9:49AM Does anyone else find that ripping a DVD with Handbrake takes FOREVER? I'm still using Handbrake's "Instant Handbrake" app and it takes about 3 hours per dvd. Even after downloading the newest version of the regular Handbrake this week it still takes about 9 hours per dvd. I'm using the iPhone preset but I just can't imagine everyone else is waiting 9+ hours to rip a DVD to their iPhone, right??

Dec 20th 2007 11:23AM For your iTunes questions, can you check the option on the summary tab of iTunes to disable automatic syncing of your iPhone? Not sure if that's the solution you're looking for but it's what I have done so my iPhone doesn't syn before I'm ready for it to.

Remove iTunes DRM easily and quickly with iMovie HD

Dec 11th 2007 12:31PM Mike never claimed this is the greatest solution for all DRM'd files. It's a simple tip that works in a pinch. No need to flame the guy for throwing out an option.

Yojimbo updated to 1.5

Dec 5th 2007 2:44PM The idea of Yojimbo sounds great and I know there's a huge fan-base...but I just don't get it! Are there any die-hard Yojimbo users out there that can explain how they get use out of it? I'd love to become a convert.
