iRig UA for Android versus iRig HD for iOS Video Comparison

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSI remember building my first pedal board out of an old record player. The size was wide enough that I could hinge onto my Peavey Rage amplifier. I had a Wah/Volume, Reverb and Doubler pedals which I affixed to the board and plugged into the power strip. It was crude, but it worked really well. Today, all you need is a smartphone to not only get all those pedals, but a plethora of amps and microphones as well. Digital guitar modeling has majorly progressed in the last 5 years – especially with companies like IK Multimedia who are pushing the boundaries for musicians. A guitar player might just walk in with their ax and a tablet that plugs right into the soundboard. No more amps. No more pedal boards that lie on the ground to get beer spilled on them. The...

Day 1 of NAB 2014 – Cases, Lights and Streaming Boxes

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSDay 1 of the NAB show expo was informative and eye-opening. As a video podcaster, I checked out a lot of great items and new ways to create content. My first travels went to the North hall which saw a lot of broadcast specific items. These were hardware and software solutions which would cost broadcasters $10,ooo or more. While these are not things a normal podcaster would invest in, I still got to understand how things like closed captioning, satellite feeds, multi-studio broadcasting, and more worked. Central hall brought products I could sink my teeth into. I started with a company that produces camera teleprompters. This is something I see more home creators get into. You can set up an iPad with software, then place it in this device to read during your show. Control the speed with an app or...


iStopMotion by Boinx – Create Stop Motion Videos

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSStop motion is an art that some excel in. Claymation and LEGO motion are both types of Stop motion video. Movies like Wallace and Grommet and Chicken Run use this technique. Now you can, too! A couple weeks ago, Boinx software sent me the iStopMotion software to play with on my Mac and iPad. I am not a stop motion expert by any means, but this software made is easy to create my own videos and animated GIFs. Advantages of iStopMotion The ghost images show you where your items were so adjustments can be made. You can load an audio track so the stop motion can sync with it. You can even load in a video to create a stop motion version. Imagine re-creating Peter Gabriel’s Sledgehammer with this software! You can also put up a chromakey background to put your...

Cadillac User Experience (CUE) at #CES 2012 Showstoppers

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSCadillac is working on a great new interface for their cars. It adds functionality and luxury, while giving users a great experience. We got to spend a lot of time with Cadillac at CES and learn all about the Cadillac User Experience (CUE). Then, at CES Showstoppers, we stopped by Cadillac to play with and talk to Cadillac about the CUE. Here, they explained the navigation and computer system. The Cadillac CUE is a full infotainment and interface. It will start in the XTS and ATS, along with the SRX in 2013. This is Cadillac’s “centerpiece” of future interiors.

How to Install OSX Lion – New Features: How to use MultiTouch Trackpad

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSOn Thursday, OSX Lion was released by Apple. It was the first time you couldn’t get a physical disk to install – you had to download from the mac app store. Therefore, I go through the installation process, what you might want to do to prepare for it and install. We then look at some of the great new features in OSX Lion. Updated mail and address book. The implementation of LaunchPad and Mission Control. But more interesting, the use of multi-touch trackpad features. I go through all the motion features and how they can be used. I also show you how to use Launchpad and more.

During the “Weekend Update” he dressed up to look like an old man and sit there telling the Kids: “Back in my day…” He would always end the line with being bloody and beat up and “WEEEE LOVED IT!”. This week I was asked the question: Will the student now using a Mac be able to adapt to a PC environment in the workforce? I said Yes and went on with my college story: I used a MAC until 1995. After that, it was a PC until 2005 when I learned Mac environments for work. But even the Windows or Mac of 1998 is not the same of 2008. It really begs the question: What will the machines of 2018 look...

Another Secret Announcement from Apple – Bitstrips

Apple’s at it again – another event and another secret product that everyone is wasting bandwidth guessing what it is. “The Brick” as it was called in the early stages is actually going to be something with laptops. There are some that say multi-touch screens, others saying it’s a new type of Aluminum case. Whatever it is it will debut on Oct 14th. So in homage, here is this weeks’ bitstrips.

Thoughts on Windows 7 1

Thoughts on Windows 7

I understand that Microsoft needs to move forward with their Operating Systems. What I don’t understand is all the hype that Windows 7 is getting. Especially for something that won’t come out until possibly 2010. I remember sitting at my desk on the Windows 95 support team (yep, I worked for but never was employed by Microsoft) previewing an alpha copy of “Nashville” – technically it was suppose to be Windows 96, but the OS was revamped and then scrapped for 98. All I could think of while playing with the browser was “Why when 95 was doing so well?”
