Are Craig Ferguson and Don Johnson Flirting With Each Other? (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Sep 1st 2010 8:50AM
Are Craig Ferguson and Don Johnson Flirting With Each Other?Don Johnson, former star of 'Miami Vice' -- and one of the stars of the upcoming film 'Machete' -- appeared on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS). While Don was on the show, he chatted with host Craig Ferguson about where he currently lives. As it happens, Johnson resides in Los Angeles -- which is pretty standard for an actor. But for some reason, Ferguson thought that Don might live in "West Hollywood." A fairly confusing conversation then took place.

Johnson admitted that he had "passed through" West Hollywood, and this was Ferguson's reply: "Didn't we all, in the 80s?" Huh? Say what now? The actor and the host then made vague references to the following things:

Is Apple's '1984' the Best Super Bowl Commercial Ever?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 3rd 2010 3:05PM
Every year around this time, everyone talks about the best Super Bowl commercials of all-time. In fact, CBS has a special tonight at 8pm, 'Greatest Super Bowl Commercials of All-Time.' Apple's '1984' ad, which introduced the Mac, is often cited as the best Super Bowl ad ever. Is it? I love it and it's certainly in the running and iconic. Some people say this is the best ad ever, period.

Here's the commercial. After the jump, take our poll.

MadTV had the iPad years ago

So Apple announced the iPad today. No surprise, especially since Mad TV announced it a few years ago. (Might be slightly NSFW.)

Patrick Warburton is a 'top of the line' PC in the latest Mac ad

by Mike Moody, posted Aug 25th 2009 8:02PM
Patrick Warburton has made a career out of playing the smug and clueless jerk everyone loves to laugh at on shows like Seinfeld, Less than Perfect and Rules of Engagement. I guess that's why Apple thought he'd be the perfect guy to play a "top of the line" PC in the latest Mac ad:



I love these simple and amusing Get a Mac ads, but this is probably one of my favorites of the bunch. I never imagined this before, but now I can see the hammy Warburton maybe playing a self-important '60s commercial actor on Mad Men, or at least starring in an SNL-style Mad Men parody.

So what's it all about? Read on for the description from the official press release ...

Everybody hates the new Microsoft commercials

MicrosoftHow about you?

These new ads are trying to say you shouldn't pay a lot for a computer, especially those damn Macs that, well, everyone who uses them really loves. (Disclaimer: yes, I'm typing this on a Mac.)

CNBC anchor wonders if Steve Jobs has PMS - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 6th 2009 9:15AM
As MacWorld opens today in San Francisco, people are talking about the statement released by Apple CEO Steve Jobs yesterday concerning rumors about his health. Jobs has gone through a rather obvious loss of weight and people have speculated that he had a serious health problem, perhaps related to the cancer scare he had a while back. But in the statement, Jobs says that the weight loss was caused by a hormonal imbalance and that he is undergoing treatment to solve the problem.

Also, he doesn't have PMS.

That's the little joke that CNBC anchor Dennis Kneale made on the network yesterday, in a report about Jobs' statement and the price of Apple's stock. While throwing to another reporter, Kneale asked if "all of this was about PMS, something like that?" Kneale apologized for the remark (which he called "word play") after the report. I don't think Jobs should be offended, though I bet some women will be.

It seems like something weird happens on CNBC every day now.

It's been just a little over a year since "Dayman" took the world by storm (that may be an exaggeration) in the season three It's Always Sunny ep "Sweet Dee's Dating a Retarded Person." Everyone knows the lyrics, there are tee-shirts, cell-phone ringtones, and now Charlie has taken his opus to a new level - musical.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia season four - An early look

(L-R): Rob McElhenney as Mac, David Hornsby as Rickety Cricket, and Glenn Howerton as Dennis
You'd have thought that after 32 episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia (premieres on FX, next Thursday, 9/18 at 10PM) that Mac, Dennis, Dee, Charlie, and Frank would have tackled just about anything you can think of that's offensive. They've hit on underage drinking, Nazis, sex offenders, dumpster babies, religion, retardation, homosexuality, and homeless people. Well I'm here to tell you that it's far from over. There's still plenty of off-color material for these five fools to rape (considering the context... I think that is the right word) and it isn't stopping with this season, which will run for 13 episodes. FX president John Landgraf has confirmed that 39 more episodes will follow. But I'm getting ahead of myself. My thoughts on the season four premiere are after jump.

AVerMedia to make TV tuners for Mac

AVerMedia TV tuner for Mac
AVerMedia has been making TV tuner cards for Windows computers for ages, but the company has yet to release a product that's compatible with Mac software and hardware. Now TG Daily reports that the company is preparing to enter the Apple peripheral market.

The upcoming USB TV tuner will be compatible with the Apple iRemote and comes bundled with software for playing and recording programs. It will support analog and DVB-T standards.

There's no word on how much the AVerMedia tuner wll cost, but it should be available during Q3 of 2008. It's likely that the company will try to keep the price low, since AVerMedia is known for making low-cost TV tuners for computers running Windows.

Roxio issues Toast updates, fixes TiVo sync issues

by Brad Linder, posted Apr 1st 2008 9:01AM
Toast 9 TitaniumRoxio has released updated versions of its Toast Titanium 8 and 9 disc burning software for Mac OS X. Version 9.02 and 8.04 are available as free updates for existing users, while new customers can purchase Toast Titanium 9 for $80 after a $20 mail-in rebate.

Toast is more than just a CD/DVD burning utility. The application also supports HD-DVD and Blu-Ray discs, and includes TiVoToGo software for OS X, which lets users transfer recordings from a TiVo to a computer. But Toast TiVoToGo users had reported that the audio and video were out of sync after transfer to a Mac. The update should fix that problem.

Version 9.02 also fixes some problems related to high definition video playback, and a problem that prevented Blu-Ray discs from playing properly on a PS3. Toast Titanium 8.02 also resolves a problem that prevented EyeTV recordings from showing up in the Media Browser.

Roxio releases Toast 9 disc authoring/TiVoToGo software for Mac

Roxio Toast 9
Roxio has updated its Toast disc authoring software for OS X to version 9. While I normally don't go out of my way to post about incremental upgrades to disc burning applications, as Dave Zatz points out, Roxio's Toast software includes the Mac version of the TiVoToGo software which lets you transfer videos from your TiVo to your computer. Unfortunately, Roxio Toast 8 has been experiencing some A/V sync issues since the last time TiVo issued a software update. There's no word on whether those issues have been addressed in Toast 9.

There's also a section of the Toast 9 web site which mentions the option to convert video files to formats for playing on a variety of devices including cellphones, video game consoles, iPods, and the Apple TV. Although the web page mentions TiVo, I can't seem to find a TiVo option in the screenshot above.

Probably the biggest update in Toast 9 is the ability to create HD-DVD and Blu-Ray high definition video discs, if that's something you're inclined to do. Toast 9 will set you back $100 for a full license, and the HD-DVD/Blu-Ray plugin will set you back another $20, but you can get it for free if you purchase the software by April 13th. If you've got an earlier version of Toast you can upgrade for $80.

XBMC 0.1 released for OS X

XMBC
The Xbox Media Center team has released the first beta version of XMBC for OS X. If that's a lot of abbreviations for you, let me break it down. Xbox Media Center started off as a software project to turn the original Xbox into a home media center. But over the past year or so, some of the project's developers have decided to port the excellent media center interface to other platforms, including Mac and Linux.

XBMC 0.1 for OS X is still an early release, as the name would suggest. But it already presents a full featured alternative to Front Row for anyone who wants to enjoy their movies, music, and image libraries while sitting more than two feet away from their computer.

Equinox launches USB TV tuner for Mac

Equinox
In the market for a Mac-friendly USB TV tuner? Up until recently the market's been pretty much cornered by Elgato and Miglia. But last year Hauppauge announced that some of its popular TV tuners for PC were now Mac compatible. Or if none of those tuners are doing it for you, check out the new TubeStick hybrid from Equinox.

This $129 tuner can handle NTSC, ATSC, and ClearQAM signals. In layman's terms, that means you can plug in an analog cable, a digital antenna for over the air HDTV, or user the tuner to decode unencrypted HD cable channels.

The TubeStick hybrid comes with a portable antenna for watching over the air programs on the go, but we'd recommend spending a few bucks on a higher quality antenna if you plan to use this tuner at home. The tuner is also compatible with Windows.

Elgato adds ClearQAM support to TV tuners

by Brad Linder, posted Jan 17th 2008 12:57PM
Elgato EyeTV HybridElgato apparently had a bit more up its sleeve this week than we thought. The company announced the launch of EyeTV 3 at Macworld the other day. But Elgato also upgraded its line of EyeTV hardware to add ClearQAM support for viewing and recording unencrypted HD programming.

The EyeTV Hybrid and the EyeTV 250 Plus TV are both getting the upgrade treatment. The prices haven't changed. The Hybrid still sells for $150, while the 250 Plus TV, which includes a hardware encoder to reduce your video file size, goes for $200.

Unfortunately the update is not available to existing users via a software update.
