Daily Blog – Ross Jones – August 14, 2008: OLYMPIC SIZED COMMERCIALS

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

I’m trying to enjoy the Olympics, really I am. But there is only so much a person can be expected to tolerate. Between the seemingly endless commercials, studio patter, travelogues, and human interest stories, there’s barely any of that competitiony-stuff going on.

I will not watch it “live” at all (here in the U.S. Pacific Time Zone, nothing is really live anyway). Plus, I do not have the patience to sit through all the fluff. I also tried recording on my DVR, but three or four hours of HD Olympics every night, in addition to my usually scheduled recordings, fills up my hard drive too fast. Comcast actually has a pretty neat On Demand selection that features a few of the previous days highlights, available free and in HD. My only complaint is that I wish there was more of it.

I understand that TV networks pay a princely sum for the right to televise the Olympics, and have to recoup their investment. But there’s got to be a better way to do it.

Daily Blog – Adrian Wittenberg – August 12, 2008: FUNCTIONALITY THAT FITS.

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

I have seen a lot of people using Apple’s iPhone lately.  I have wanted one as well but the device doesn’t operate on my cell phone provider’s network.  That left me with the decision to buy the iPod Touch which provides a lot of the same functionality as the iPhone and has the same stylish interface that is so fun to use.  I brought the device home and loaded it with some songs and pictures and I was pleased with the clean and bright display as well as how easy it was to navigate through media.  The only problem is that I don’t have many songs in an iTunes library and my CD collection still hasn’t been ripped to my computer’s hard drive as of yet.

On the other hand, I have long been a fan of the Rhapsody subscription service because I like the idea of accessing so many different songs without purchasing them.  Unfortunately, as of now, Rhapsody subscription songs do not play on the Apple iPod series of MP3 players.  While Rhapsody has created an online store that sells their library songs in the MP3 format to reach the Apple crowd, iPod users still don’t have a subscription service available to them.  I really hope this changes either with Apple offering their own subscription service or through an agreement with Apple and the Rhapsody service.

So, I went back to my local electronics retailer and I bought a very inexpensive 2gb MP3 player from Insignia.  This player has an interface which requires lengthy presses of tiny buttons and its screen is just big enough to fit a couple lines of text.   Needless to say, its unpleasant to navigate through.  On the upside, it does transfer and play Rhapsody subscription tracks quite easily.  So, I loaded the device up with at least twenty different albums and was able to listen to brand new releases such as Skin Deep, Buddy Guy’s soulful new blues offering.  I take this device with me to the gym while my iPod Touch stays at home because I want to listen to brand new music without spending fifteen dollars for an album I haven’t heard yet.  Functionality that fits.
