Working With HTML Files Using Mac OS X's TextEdit Application

You can use Mac OS X's simple TextEdit program to create HTML pages. But before you start, there are a few options that you need to set.

Launch the TextEdit application and choose TextEdit > Preferences from the main menu.


Under the New Document tab, choose Plain Text as the format.


If you work with Rich Text, then the text that you type will be interpreted as formatted text instead of HTML code.

Then, in the Open and Save tab, make sure that Ignore rich text commands in HTML files is CHECKED.


You want to ignore rich text commands in HTML files so that when you open an HTML file using TextEdit, you will be able to view and edit the HTML source code.

Once you've set those options, choose File > New to create a new document and start typing your HTML code.

*In the image below, the window on the left is a rich text document window. The one on the right is a plain text document window. You will notice that they are different.


To save your work as an HTML file, choose File > Save As and save your work with a .html extension.


If a message saying You have used the extension ".html" at the end of the name. The standard extension is ".txt" appears, click on the Use. html button.


And you're done.

Kingston Memory For Macs

I just upgraded my almost-3-years-old iMac G5's memory a couple of days ago. When I got that computer, it only had 512MB of memory and upgrading it at that time was pretty expensive. If I remember correctly, it would have cost me over Php 10,000 (and this wasn't even the very expensive Apple branded memory) to add 2G. So I just decided that I was going to wait for the price to go down. And when I looked around a couple of weeks ago, I was happy to find that upgrading my G5's memory was now within my budget. I decided to go for Kingston memory (you don't have to use the Apple branded ones which are quite expensive!). If you go to the Kingston website, they have a very handy tool that lets you find what type of memory module you need based on the computer that you have. Just choose Apple from the Search by manufacturer drop-down menu, then click the button and it will bring you to a page that lists the Apple systems that Kingston develops memory modules for. So I just easily searched for what specific model I needed and listed down the part number. And then I called a couple of local Kingston resellers to find a good deal. I decided to get a 2G module (as opposed to just 1G) to max out my iMac G5's memory. The reseller had to order the part which took about 2 weeks and then they delivered it to my house for free. It cost me Php 3,000. I know it's still a bit expensive, but I still don't think it was as overpriced as the Apple branded ones. And I believe Kingston makes good products anyway, so I didn't feel so bad about shelling out 3,000. Other local resellers probably sell Kingston memory at lower prices, but I had a hard time finding one that sold the specific module that I needed (I wasn't sure exactly why other resellers said they didn't sell it since you could just order it from the distributor anyway). There was even one reseller that insisted that Kingston didn't make 2G modules for the iMac G5. And this was even after I told him that I was looking at the Kingston website as we were talking over the phone, and that the info said that there is in fact a 2G module for my old G5. But anyway, I found what I needed and was able to succesfully upgrade my memory so I'm pretty happy about that.

Here is where you can find a list of Philippine Kingston distributors. You can try calling any of the companies listed and ask them for a list of resellers that are near your area.

The DLO Portable Speakers For The iPhone


The DLO Portable Speakers is a great accessory for the iPhone.


Featuring an extra-wide sound stage and bass vents for delivering powerful sound, these small speakers pack a powerful punch.

The speakers come with a rotating stand that can hold the iPhone either upright or horizontally so you can position it properly when watching movies.

What's great about these DLO Portable Speakers is that it turns into a speaker phone so that you don't have to disconnect your iPhone when you make or receive a call.

It also has a unique and compact design ideal for travel. The two small speakers snap on either side of the stand to create a "ball" that's easy to store.

The DLO Portable speakers can run on 4 AAA batteries or with the included AC adapter. It can also work with the iPod and any other audio device that has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack.

Price tag: $50

Altec Lansing Introduces iPhone Speaker System


Altec Lansing introduced a new product, the T612 - a digital audio system for the iPhone and new iPod family of products, at the CES 2008. The product provides brilliant sound quality and features incoming call support for the iPhone:

From the Altec Lansing T612 press release:
The T612 complements key features of the iPhone, including support for incoming calls. If a call comes in while music is playing, the iPhone gives priority to the call by pausing the music. Once the call is completed, the iPhone is re-docked in the T612 and the music resumes playing at the same song and place.

I think the product would be much better though if it could actually work as a speaker phone instead of having to re-dock the iPhone every time a phone call interrupts your music listening.

The T612 will be available by Feb 2008 with a $199 price tag.

Basket of Apples [05-Jan-2008]

Happy New Year everyone! :) We're looking forward to another exciting year of new Apple products and innovations. In the meantime, here are some Apple-related stuff from the interwebz:

· A girl expecting to receive an iPod for Christmas opens the box and is surprised to find a strange note instead.

· iLuv, makers of iPod accessories launches two new iPod dock devices said to be made available this coming March 2008. One is a combo iPod dock and DVD player and the other is an audio iPod dock with stereo Bluetooth capabilities.

· LOL Video: Filmmaker David Lynch's thoughts on playing movies on a "F***ing" telephone (NSFW).

· A patent filed by Apple that looks something like an iMac but appears to be some sort of display that has a slot-loading bay where you can actually insert a MacBook. The device is speculated to be a docking station ideal for the rumored ultra-slim, ultra-light MacBook.
