How a Linux DVD duplicator saved my pocket

What with my imminent workshops on the horizon and a promise that "Every student receives a Free Software DVD", I have realised that I need to be burning more than one laborious DVD at a time.On offer to my students is the Windows Free Software collection OpenDisc and Linux Mint, a polished Ubuntu derivative distro.

Sony eBook Store version 3.0 software now available for Apple and Windows

I was just reading my friend Lisa's first thoughts and video of the Sony Reader Touch Edition (PRS-600) and saw she mentioned the new Sony eBook Store 3.0 software would be available this Thursday or Friday. Well, Sony surprised us with an early release and if you go visit the eBook Store download site you will find both Mac and PC downloads for the latest 3.0 version. I downloaded it onto my MacBook Pro and downloaded all of my purchased content to my MBP too since I like to burn a backup DVD of my purchases.

Court upholds RealDVD injunction; supports outdated laws and Hollywood business model

I have to admit that I am blown away by a judge's decision to grant a preliminary injunction on sales of RealDVD, RealNetworks' controversial software that allows consumers to rip DVD movies into a computer much the same way that CDs can be ripped.Even though I didn't like it, I understood why Judge Marilyn Hall Patel agreed back in October to grant a temporary restraining order against RealDVD.

Simplicity is a feature

New contract, new Windows machine, fresh install of Open Source software (from the OpenDisc project, if only I'd remembered the DVD…).I went to download Sumatra PDF reader, and came across this blurb:“Simplicity has a higher priority than a lot of features.

Clonezilla rocks the house!

After installing Windows XP, updating it, restarting it, authenticating it, and then installing a stack of Free Software from the OpenDisc DVD, and configuring that (with probably a few more restarts thrown in), I thought, with 3 machines to go:“I don’t want to do this again…”So I didn't. I used Clonezilla instead.

Scrabbling with Scribus

I'm trying to get to grips with the Free publishing software Scribus, as I want to update the artwork for the OpenDisc DVD. But I have hit what appears to be a brick wall, although I'm sure it's just a learning curve.

MobileTechRoundup show #163, Kindle 2, Android, and awesome freeware

The availability of the Kindle 2 was the big tech news of the week and James, Kevin, and I chatted about my Kindle 2 and our thoughts on the new ebook reader in MobileTechRoundup show #163. We also chatted about the ebook options on the iPhone and other mobile devices, including Stanza and eReader. Priced Android apps are also now available, but it sure seems like hardware and software is progressing slowly here. James introduced a new freeware, Doubletwist, that actually looks like a lifesaver for me and all my mobile devices as it brings you the capability to transfer media content from your Mac to a number of mobile devices, with conversion integrated in the software. BTW, DVD Jon is a part of this software so that tells you something.

Apple, not Gear, deserves the blame for iTunes crashes

It’s now been a week since Apple’s botched release of iTunes 8, which caused a tidal wave of Vista crashes before it was hastily rolled back. Judging from traffic on Apple’s support forum, pulling the new Apple USB driver and replacing it with the file from iTunes 7.7 succeeded in quieting most of the complaints from most Windows users, although a handful of customers report that they’re still having problems. After looking more closely at the other driver, from Gear Software, I've concluded that it was unrelated to these crashes and might even be an innocent bystander in another iTunes support headache involving missing CD and DVD drive letters.

The SecurDisc data protection in LG's GSA-H55N has obvious appeal to some businesses, although others may do better simply by improving their storage of normal CDs and DVDs.

My MacBook Pro Experience - Day 2

A quick update to my MacBook Pro Experience.Last night I decided to see how good the MacBook Pro is as a DVD player and bought out my "default" movie - Aliens. Not only do I enjoy this movie each time I watch it, I felt that it was a great movie to test out the the system's screen, sound system and the software DVD player.

Protect DVD-Video - A slap in the face for PC and Media Center owners

The movie industry seems determined to continue on a course where it happily erodes the rights of legitimate users, all in the name of securing profits. The latest example of this comes in the form of a DVD copy protection technology called Protect DVD-Video which actually prevents a DVD being played on a Windows PC using Windows Media Player, Windows Media Center Edition or any software players based on DirectShow.

Mandriva occupies the middle ground between consumer-focused and business-orientated Linux distributions. It's generally well put together, but lacks some details.
