Have you ever though about asking your staff to do what they say to customers. I won't name and shame yet but if a company is judged by the way it treats it customers through customer service the Dell has poor third world customer service,

Pink Floyd legend Syd Barrett 1946 - 2006

View Article  German archivists have found a way to store and access digital data for centuries -- convert it to analog.

The data pool in the universe is continuously growing. More and more information is being saved digitally on CDs and DVDs -- but these thin silver disks have a life-span of only about five years. That may be sufficient for the average user at home or work, but archives and libraries face the threat of massive loss.


At the end of June, specialists gathered for a colloquium in the library at the University of Stuttgart. They met to conclude the so called ARCHE project, which sought a long-term solution for storing digital data -- and found one.

View Article  Fatman iTube
Forget today's synthetic sound systems - if you want to give your digital tracks the audiophile treatment, you need to take a look at the Fatman iTube. Yes, it's an old-fashioned valve amp for your portable player, which promises to give the music from your iPod "a luscious warm analogue sound". While old-school technology might be at work for the music output, the iTube is still a very modern piece of kit. It's essentially a docking station for all iPods (except the shuffle), which comes with a remote control so you can sit back and enjoy the music - or if you hook it up to the TV, you can enjoy your pictures and video clips, again controlled by the remote.

Will it really improve your music that much? You can find out in July, when it goes on sale for £300.
View Article  dedicated 2nd video out from the ibooks

Owen a good friend and Video Artist

has told me that "You can get dedicated 2nd video out from the ibooks – it’s built into the graphics card, but has been disabled in the operating system. Install this - and you have a dedicated second video out J

It’s installed on Tony’s ibook and has been on two of Andy’s without any negative effects…there’s even the software to undo it should you want to take it in for repair and not have a voided warranty….

at Earl Court Two, were the great and the good of the Television industry came to look at shiny boxes and electronics with blue leds on them, I  bumped into a few old faces and had a good time meeting some new ones and hopefully soon to be good customers as well. Had the wonder pleasure of showing the sales people at Sony how to dub one tape format to another with audio. The key to it guys is arming the audio tracks, giggles
