Heinz Kluetmeier interview
I had the opportunity to interview legendary sports photojournalist Heinz Kluetmeier after today's Apple press conference about his experiences with Apple's new all-in-one post production application for photographers - Aperture. Heinz is one of the three photogs featured in the Apple promotional video for Aperture and is the Senior Staff Photographer, Special Projects for Sports Illustrated magazine with over 100 SI cover shots to his credit.
It's all about the connectors
If you're considering the purchase of one of the new generation of iPods (i.e. nano or 5G video iPod) it's important to think about accessories. If you're upgrading from a previous model, you should take a careful inventory of your iPod doodads and accessories and make sure that they'll work with your new iron.
Apple drops FireWire from video iPod
I am simply shocked and amazed that Apple has abandoned FireWire on the just-announced fifth generation iPods with video. I understand why there's no FireWire on the iPod shuffle (no port) and even why it's off the nano (tiny form-factor, lower cost) but why in blazes did Apple leave FireWire off the new video iPod?
PowerPage: The migration blues
I've been getting a ton of email to ask about the deal with my Web site: O'Grady's PowerPage. First, let me dispel some rumors. The PowerPage wasn't shut down by Apple legal, a Denial-Of-Service (DOS) attack or unpaid domain or hosting bills. And we certainly weren't acquired by a large media company (my favorite). The PowerPage is simply suffering from a case of the migration blues.
