Al Gore: Champion Of The Environment And Mac Geek

I came across this while reading the May 28, 2007 issue of Time Magazine:


That's Al Gore in his home office in Nashville, Te-Nuh-Say (you gotta say it with that Southern twang). And you may have also noticed his set of not one... not two... but THREE ginormous Apple Cinema Displays. *DROOLS*. If you look closely, you'll also see a tiny white speaker underneath the middle display. I think it's one of the two tiny ones from the JBL Creature II three piece speaker system. Al Gore's quite the hip geek, isn't he? I also like his ergonomic desk chair. Really looks like it gives great neck and back support. He definitely needs a bigger desk though. And also, what on earth is that giant frog ornament on his wall all about? The image caption states that "Mind-map software and huge Post-it notes help him order his thoughts." Maybe he should try cleaning his office, too.

Name A Mac And Get A FREE Meal!

Someone sent me an email today about another person running a contest entitled "Name My Mac". Apparently, there is a recently acquired Mac out there that is in dire need of a unique name! And its owner is asking for creative suggestions from the Pinoy Mac lovin' community. If your name gets picked, you win a P500.00 gift certificate for a nice, hearty meal at the UCC! So c'mon and join the "Name My Mac Contest"!

The VLC Media Player: A Great Alternative To The QuickTime Player

VLCThe QuickTime Player isn't the only media player available for Mac users. If you're looking for an alternative, or are just curious to try out a different one, I would recommend the VLC Media Player. It handles various audio and video formats such as MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, etc... It also plays DVDs and VCDs, making it a suitable alternative to the Mac OS X standard DVD player as well. It can even handle VOB files ripped from DVD-Video discs (when I try playing VOB files using QuickTime, the audio doesn't come out). If I encounter any other video formats that I can't seem to play in QuickTime, I try opening it with the VLC Media Player and it usually works. What I also like about it is its ability to play in fullscreen mode, which in QuickTime is only a feature available in the not-so-free QuickTime Pro version. The VLC Media Player, on the other hand, is absolutely FREE. So give it a try!
