Are the words macbook pro really that glossy or is it because of the lighting? http://www.flickr.com/photos/carpeaq...7594068123451/

Just wondering what it's for
It's to put on top of your keys for when you close your lid. Usually your fingers leave oil behind on the keys and they can transfer to the screen when closed. The cloth in between prevents that. It's also nice for a quick dust wipe when your on the road. I just placed it there since I don't use the PBook keyboard right now anyway.

A noble setup to be sure... A question for you: Where'd you get that lovely blue desktop wallpaper you're running on your pbook?

I don't mean to be a wanker, but I do like it.

newsushi,

Do you plug-in the cradle of the Logitech bluetooth mouse and keyboard to the USB port on your PB? Or just use the bluetooth from the PB to conect them?

Thanks.

I use the Powerbook's built-in bluetooth. The mouse's cradle (visible under the iCurve) is used solely for charging.

Newsushi - nice setup.

I'm looking to get a new pair of headphones soon and wondered what you think of your Sennheiser 595s. Are they the newer, low impedance ones? What else did you consider?

I had a pair too. They are phenominal. The downside, however, is that you need an amplifier to take full advantage of them. Simply plugging them into your standard jack isn't going to give you the full experience.

I wonder if that's the case with the newer, lower impedance models (same model number). The old ones were 120ohms, the new ones are 50 and should be easier to drive with a small op-amp like laptops have.

Do you know which yours was?

What else did you try, and what did you replace them with?

I love the Mighty Mouse. I wish Apple would make a wireless/bluetooth model.

The wallpaper is by Roger Dean, who has done quite a few album covers and inserts over the years. I believe I downloaded it from his site some time ago.

Regarding the HD 595, I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world. They're the best $250 I've ever spent on audio. Sure, the Boston VR setup kicks their butt, but at 1/8th the price, you can't beat these things. They are an open back design, so you can hear them easily across the room or even across my 1000+sqft apartment. I bought them while on an extended business trip (going through audiophile withdrawl) and was amazed at how awesome they sound with just my laptop or iPod. Once I got them home and plugged them into a decent amp...I was totally blown away by their warmth and detail. Very very awesome cans. I compared them to approximately 15 models at Magnolia Audio/Video ranging in price from $50-$1000. I couldn't tell you any brands or models now, though, it's been several months. In blind listening tests, I couldn't tell a discernable quality difference (i.e. resolution & depth) between these and many of the models costing twice-three times as much...so I went with these. They're quite durable too, I wear them everywhere (including to bed at night to fall asleep to) and give them very little special treatment.

I can't recommend them enough. These are the newer model and can be driven quite well by an iPod or laptop. That said, pair them with a decent headphone amp and you'll be amazed as they really come to life!

Thats the v3i. Same like the V3 only with 1.3 megapixel camera and the glowing blue thing on the front.

V3c is the v3 for verizon. Only supports CDMA instead of GSM

I apoligize if this is the wrong place, but it's related.

I'm looking for a good, stylish corner desk/workstation big enough for a MBP, that I can buy online (offline is a last resort) in Canada. any ideas?

The space scenes? Those are my art, when I have freetime, you can get it here along with more

http://star-fire.deviantart.com/gallery/

That one is Trinity, but it's made of Destiny, Eternity and Intensity which are also there as seperate images.

BTW your images are very nice also, it's not the camera it's the person behind it that counts, I might actually be selling my 20D for something a bit more economical

Either that keyboard gets infrequent use or you have arms that ET would be proud of

On a serious note, I really like those Jerker(?) desks. What you've done with the monitor shelf looks very practical.
