We have a couple of interesting things to announce to
you in this issue. Some of it you probably already know
about, but some is hopefully new to you. To start off
with, we’ve changed our tag line from “Apple lifestyle
magazine” to “Tech lifestyle magazine”. We’re certainly
not leaving Apple behind though, so don’t worry. In
practice, don’t expect any dramatic changes in content
because of that, but there will be some more PC and
gaming content coming in to the magazine, and already
in this issue you can see some of that. We do this to
clarify the profile of the magazine for advertisers as well
as readers. In truth we’ve already had a lot of articles
that are more “general tech” than just “Apple”, and the
podcast has been “Tech Chat” from the start. Just look
at our recent reporting on Nokia in Beirut and the Mobile
World Congress in Barcelona and you get the idea.
Another notable change is that we’re now working with
the guys at Tbreak.com. Abbas and his team have been
doing a great job with their growing network of sites, but
working with them in various ways, especially on sharing
content, will mean we’re stronger together and can reach
out to more readers and cover more of the tech world.
This is a decision ruled by a strong sense of community
and passion for technology. Both Shufflegazine and
Tbreak have a strong foundation in community and
we’re all crazy about gadgets and other tech, whether
it be computers, gaming consoles, mobiles phones or
whatever. As we continue to develop Shufflegazine we
hope you will keep giving us your feedback. We want
Shufflegazine, whether it’s in print, web site, podcast or
iPhone app, to be the best place in the region for tech,
but we need your help to make that happen.

Borrowing features like Faces and Places from the
recent version of iPhoto, Apple announced version
3 of Aperture, their professional photo editing and
management software. Apple claims over 200 new
features in the updated Aperture with Brushes,
Adjustment Presets and new Slideshows being among
the major ones. With the new Brushes functionality users
can simply paint over parts of their photos to add effects
like dodge, burn, blur, etc. Apple claims this is a lot
easier than working with masks and layers. Adjustment
Presets allows users to apply specific styles or looks to
a complete photograph with just one click of the mouse.
Photographers can use the built-in presets, make their
own and even share them with others. Slideshows in
Aperture 3 can combine photos, audio, text and video.
Pick one of the included themes or customize your own
with transitions, backgrounds, etc. and export them to
iTunes or share them online with Facebook and other
sites. Middle East availability and pricing was not know
at the time of writing, but Aperture 3 has a suggested
US retail price of $199 and existing Aperture users can
upgrade for a suggested retail price of $99. You can
download a 30-day trial from www.apple.com/aperture/
trial, where you will also find more information about
Aperture.

Nokia introduces unlimited Comes With Music
download service and X6 phone
Putting on a great show in
Beirut, featuring Lebanese
singer Melhem Zein, Nokia
introduced the Comes With
Music service to the Middle
East. Tied to the purchase of
the X6 mobile phone, Comes
With Music offers customers
unlimited downloads from
Nokia’s library of about four
million songs for 12 months.
After the year is up the
customer can keep the songs
for as long as they want even
though all songs in Comes With
Music are DRM (Digital Rights
Management) protected. Nokia
is positioning their Ovi brand
as the center of the company’s
digital lifestyle offering and their Windows-only Ovi Player
is the home of Comes With Music on a computer. The
service doesn’t require a computer though, as users can
download individual songs as well as complete albums
directly from their X6 phones. Music can be shared
between active Comes With Music phones. Jake Larsen,
Head of Music, Nokia MEA, said “You can download all
the tracks, it’s all yours and you get to keep it. It doesn’t
go away, you do not lose access to those tracks.”
Also in Beirut, Frederic Copper-Royer, Nokia Music
Manager MENA, said that all tracks now available in
Nokia’s Music Stores- Nokia refers to them as “a la
carte”- including the UAE one, will from “end of February”
be DRM free. Tracks can be purchased and downloaded
as regular, non-protected MP3 files using a web browser.
He confirmed that this means that Mac users and users
of web browsers other than Internet Explorer will from
them be able to purchase and enjoy music from Nokia’s
music store. An obvious question that has no answer as
of yet is what this means for Apple’s iTunes, which has
yet to arrive in the Middle East. We hope to return soon
with a full review of the Comes With Music service and
the X6 phone.

DISTREE XXL is an annual invitation-only trade show
held in Monaco, that is targeted to bring together IT
and consumer electronics manufacturers/vendors
with leading distributors from the regions of Europe,
the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) to give each an
opportunity to make agreements and grow their
businesses. It’s an event where deals can be initiated
that will bring the latest in tech tools and gadgets from
the companies that make them to the stores where you
buy them. Shufflegazine attended DISTREE XXL to see
what new tech products we might soon be seeing in
the Gulf Region. On display at the event were interesting
new products from companies such as Sitecom, Danew,
Tunçmatik, A.C. Ryan, Pat Says Now and QDOS. Dubai-
based vendor Promate was in attendance as well, and
won the EMEA Vendor Channel Initiative of the Year
Award at the 2010 EMEA Channel Academy Awards
ceremony held during the event. We’re looking forward
to reviewing many of the products seen at DISTREE XXL
as they become available in our region.

The Mobile World Congress took place in Barcelona
in February and Shufflegazine was there covering the
events and announcements. Expecting an estimated
50,000 attendees, including 2,800 CEOs and 2,400
press and media, the four days saw a number of
important product and service announcements.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer led the company’s
unveiling of Windows Phone 7 Series, the successor
to the aging Windows Mobile platform. The focus of
7 Series is to provide a consistent user experience,
deep integrated services and a strong ecosystem for
all partners. HTC showed off an updated HTC Sense
interface and three new smartphones. Among the
new smartphones you can find HTC Desire, which is
basically the same device as Google Nexus One with
some changes including an optical trackpad. Samsung
also showed off a new smartphone. It’s called the Wave
and runs Samsung’s own Bada software. We also want
to mention the announced collaboration between Intel
and Nokia. They’re creating a new software platform for
any mobile device by combining Maemo and Moblin.
From the region, Qatar-based Qtel Group announced
a partnership with Universal Music to offer an unlimited
music download service later this year. Qtel also unveiled
that they’re working on a mobile social networking
aggregation service. It will run as an app on a number
of mobile platforms, including Android, iPhone, Symbian
and Windows Mobile. Etisalat announced that they’ve
now got 100 million subscribers across their network.

On March 1st, Dubai-based Infinitec unveiled their IUM,
Infinite USB Memory, to the world. Shipping in July this
year at an estimated retail price of under $130, the IUM
is very unique product with a wide range
of applications. Basically it’s a device that
looks like a regular USB flash memory
that you can insert into anything with a
USB port such as computers, printers,
projectors, TVs, gaming consoles and
more. The host device will see it as any
other flash memory and you can configure
it to appear as any size you want. You
do this configuration from a Windows
PC running Infinitec’s “Infinite Portal”
application. From the portal software you
specify what files and folders on the PC
that should be available through the IUM.
That means that any storage that the PC
has access to can be made available to
the device the IUM is plugged in to. You
can find out more information about Infinitec and the
IUM at www.infinitec.com. We have presented a 10-part
interview series with Ahmad Zahran, co-founder of
Infinitec and that’s available at shuffle.to/ium. There you
will also find a podcast episode with Ahmad. We hope to
be able to come back soon with a full review of the IUM.

EA keeps UAE away
from Hell
Looks like gamers in the UAE will not be taking a journey
to hell through Dante’s Inferno, as EA has decided not
to release the game in the UAE. According to EA, they
release games in the region keeping in mind consumer
tastes and preferences. Seems like they thought this
particular game didn’t quite fit Middle Eastern tastes.
However, news of Dante’s Inferno not making it to this
region is not surprising as similarly themed games such
as God of War and Darksiders have also faced a ban.
Heavy Rain, another highly anticipated game, was
banned in February by the National Media Council in
UAE.

Command and Conquer
2 Now Downloadable for
Free
EA is offering Command and Conquer 2:
Tiberian Sun as well as its expansion Firestorm
as a free download. Command and Conquer
is easily one of the greatest real-time strategy
franchises of all time and we’re delighted to take
a trip down memory lane. The reason for this
sudden generosity is to promote the launch of
the new Command and Conquer 4, which is set
to release mid March. Download at:

Microsoft to discountin-
ue Xbox live for original
Xbox
From April 15, 2010, Microsoft will cut off Xbox Live
support from the original Xbox, finally putting
the much loved and still very popular
console to rest. Major Nelson of
Xbox says: “I wanted to let you
know that...
Microsoft will discontinue Xbox LIVE
service for original Xbox consoles and
games, including Xbox 1 games playable on Xbox
360.”
Splinter Cell: Conviction
Set for April
Ubisoft has finally got a solid release date set for its
awaited stealth-action Splinter Cell: Conviction. Instead
of issuing a press release with the date,
they came up with a rather special
method to announce it. They literally set
it in stone. Folks at IGN, Gamespot and
other major online publications were sent
a rock with the release date carved in
big bold letters: 4.13.10. So the much
anticipated next outing of Sam Fisher will
be releasing on April 13, 2010 exclusively
for Microsoft platforms- the PC and Xbox
360.

While sightseeing recently in Beirut, the tour guide asked
me what publication I was from. Everyone in our party
was in Lebanon for a Nokia event and, so the bus we
traveled on that day was full of journalists, bloggers and
other media. I answered the tour guide that I was from a
magazine that writes mostly about Apple stuff. He looked
at me strangely for a second before the coin dropped
and he said, "oh, I get it, not fruit." Apparently he had just
a day or so before read some news about something
concerning local farmers and imported apples, so his mind
was immediately drawn to fruit. Reading this you may
come to think of the scene from Forrest Gump where his
friend invested money in "that fruit company." Both these
examples show how wide spread in pop culture Apple as
a brand has become. It's far from the best known brand
in the world, but it has an image, it stands for something,
much more so than most other brands. Riding that bus
in and around Beirut made me experience the ad-crazy
surroundings of what must be more outdoor advertising
than anywhere else. I didn't see any Apple-specific ads
but there were plenty of examples of Apple in ads like an
iPod in a Valentine's day ad and an Apple USB cable in
a health care ad. All the usual advertisers were present in
droves including fashion, perfume and electronics brands.
Apple deserves a place among those brands for sure, and
I see the brand just growing in importance in coming years.
Recently they announced the iPad, and I suspect it will also
creep into pop culture, including advertising, in much the
same way that other Apple products have.

I am hooked because of Shufflegazine
I got my very first copy of Shufflegazine a long time
ago in iStyle DFC, and since then I got hooked on it
and Mac products. It is because of your magazine,
that encouraged me to buy my first MacBook (white),
and my first iPod touch. It was because of your friendly
information that helped me switch from PC to Mac. I
used your reviews as my guide when i purchased my
aluminum MacBook the moment it arrived in UAE, and
more recently my iPhone 3GS. December 2009, I made
a New Year’s Resolution, and that was “not to miss a
copy of Shufflegazine” and that’s the time I made my
subscription. And for the past two months, it lessen my
worries in life. I received my magazine on time and still
enjoy the same satisfaction that made me hooked as a
reader. Thank you for the data and information that your
magazine is providing us. I’ve been a Mac user for three
years now and still I’m learning a lot from Shufflegazine.
It’s really worth the investment. More power to you and
the rest of the brains behind Shufflegazine. -ACR
Thank you so much for telling us your story, ACR.
It's certainly warming our hearts to hear that we've
made such an impact on you, as we hope we have on
others as well. Please assist us in telling others about
Shufflegazine, so they can also benefit from what we
have to offer, and keep sending us your feedback as you
progress with your use of Apple and other equipment.

Q: Kindly, if you can, help me
with the Arabic support in
my MacBook Pro computer. I
can write only in the TextEdit
program or NeoOffice, but with
iWork or Word programs I can't,
and even Illustrator doesn't
work. Is there no other program
or setting maybe I could change
to let it work? I can't design
anything with Arabic and it's
irritating. So please, what is the
solution?
A: This is a very common question
and you should check out some of
the existing threads on this at www.
emiratesmac.com, but let's take
it in steps. For full Arabic support
in Adobe's application look at the
ME versions offered by WinSoft
(winsoft.com). There is some Arabic
support in the regular CS4 apps,
for example, but you'll find much
more functionality in what's offered
by WinSoft. For Office it's simple,
there's no Arabic support. You don't
mention what Mac OS X version you
use, but if you use anything pre 10.6
Snow Leopard you want to remove
some fonts that Office installed. (For
info see: shuffle.to/arabicofficefonts).
For word processing NeoOffice
works, as you've discovered, and
you may want to look at Mellel
(www.redlers.com) or Nisus (www.
nisus.com) as well.
Q: What is the best voice
recorder app for the iPhone,
that gives the highest quality
audio and other added
features?
A: I've been using FiRe quite a bit,
and it's the best recording app that
I've come across for iPhone and
iPod touch. It's not a voice recording
app, as such, but a general-purpose
audio recorder. To me it's mainly a
backup to my M-Audio Microtrack
II recorder, and it does a good
job of getting me recordings of
interviews, presentations and more
that I can listen through for when
I write articles. FiRe records in CD
quality, and one great thing about
it is you see the sound wave as it
records, so you can make an instant
judgment of whether the input level
is appropriate. Another great feature
is that you can tap on the sound
wave as it scrolls by and FiRe adds
a sort of bookmark, so you can later
easily go back to a particular point
in the recording. I should add that
the recording quality of the iPhone's
built-in microphone is very limited,
no matter what software you use.
To really step up in quality, get
something like Blue Microphone's
Mikey. (www.bluemic.com/mikey)
We reviewed the first generation
Mikey in our September, 2009 issue
and they've just released the Mikey
2.0, which we look forward to trying
soon.
Q: I'm studying business at
college, but I want to start
getting into web design and
perhaps do it as a side business
or even full time one day. So far
I've read some about HTML and
CSS, and it's exciting, but what
software would you recommend
for me, as I want to be a serious
web developer?
A: It's not an easy question to
answer as there is so much to
chose from. Adobe's DreamWeaver
is of course one option. It's very
extensive and can help you build
almost anything for the web as it's
full of wizards and other functionality.
However, my recommendation for
you, if you want to really be serious
about web design and development,
is to dig into the code itself and
write, at least some of it, yourself.
For that you can use almost any text
editor. TextMate is a good choice
(macromates.com) as is BBEdit
(www.barebones.com/products/
bbedit). If you want something
more specific for web development,
look at Coda (www.panic.com/
coda) or Espresso (macrabbit.com/
espresso). Personally I've not used
Espresso much, but I do most my
web coding in Coda. You have it all
in one app: FTP, SSH, CSS editing
and text editor. If CSS is something
you really want to dig in to, check
out Espresso's sister-app CSSEdit
(macrabbit.com/cssedit), it will
really help you explore the amazing
power of CSS. Good luck to you
and please send us samples of your
work that we can share with other
readers.

AD_DCCMEA_170x230-Shufflegazine.indd 1 24/02/10 11:24
Think again. It was quite easy to select a graphics card
a few years back if you wanted to play the latest games
on your PC- you would simply go out and buy the most
expensive one on the market. However, that is not the
case today and there is a very good reason for that.
It started when standard monitor sizes were 15-inch and
screen resolutions were 1024x768. Every six months
to a year, the screen size and resolutions kept getting
higher and the gaming enthusiast kept getting lured. In
order to play a game at a higher resolution, a graphics
card needed to pump out more pixels and thus, every
time the monitors were upgraded, it gave the graphics
card manufacturers a reason to make more money by
releasing a new graphics card that would allow you to
play at higher resolutions.
However, it seems that things have slowed down
considerably once we hit the 1920x1200 resolution about
two years back. There are a couple of reasons why that
happened. First, you might be aware, 1920 pixels is the
width of a Full-HD 1080p display, and maybe that is a
standard that industry wants to stick to. Or, considering
that most monitors capable of that resolution are
between 22 to 27 inches, it became clear that a monitor
with a bigger size would either not fit your work desk or
would be too big to sit so close to. Believe me, I use a
30-inch monitor at times and I have to move my entire
head and not just my eyes to go from one side of the
screen to the other.
So now that we have a standard resolution for the past
few years, suddenly it seems that a decent high-end, but
not a super duper high-end graphics card, can manage
to pump out enough pixels at a decent frame rates with
all the bells and whistles such as AA and AF enabled.
The price/performance ratio has
become a lot more important now,
especially since the console prices
have come down. Think about it:
would you rather spend AED 2,500
on just a single component for your
PC, or a PS3 that is a complete
system that will also allow you to
play games at the same resolution
along with watching BluRay movies
on your big screen TV.
So what should you pay for a
graphics card? In my opinion, AED
800 should be about what you
should need to spend, and believe it
or not, you have a decent selection
in that price range. Graphics cards
based on the NVIDIA GTX260 or GTX275 GPU could be
bought for that and they will play almost all of the new
games at good enough frame rates. If you are an ATI fan,
then you have the 4870 card which also works as well if
not better than the GTX 260. Both these cards allow you
to play most of the new games at 1920x1200 resolution
with 4x AA (Anti-Aliasing) at 60FPS (frames per second)
which translates into a very smooth gaming experience.
The few games that are more demanding and resource
hungry should work with these graphics cards at 30+
FPS, which is the basic requirement for a true gamer.
Plus you always have the option of disabling a few video
settings to get a better frame rates; I’ve seens guys
playing Counter Strike in an almost wire-frame model,
just so they dont suffer from any lag or stuttering.
Of course, there will always be a “Crysis” kind of game
released every so often that will be totally unplayable on
anything other than the extreme higher end hardware
at the time of its release, but wouldn’t you rather spend
AED 2,000 on getting a PS3 and a game such as MAG
or Uncharted 2 for it? I know I would.

I’ve been using my Nike+ shoes with my iPhone for a
few months now. Although my early morning walks took
a rest for a while when going to Sweden and to CES
in Las Vegas, I’ve been trying to make them as regular
as possible. The LunarGlide+ shoes, kindly provided by
Sun and Sand Sports, have been great for the morning
walks as well as walking around the exhibition halls in
Las Vegas. I tried using the iPhone to track how far I
walked at CES, but then I forgot to turn it on and missed
out on almost an entire day, so I gave up on that quest.
It certainly helps with my morning walks, however, to see
how far I’ve gone and to keep track of my progress, or
lack thereof. Although Nike’s web site for the plus system
is a bit of a mess and could use less Flash, it does work,
so I guess that’s good. Although I’ve not exercised as
much as I should have throughout my life, I’ve gone
through my fair share of shoes and the LunarGlide+
are the best ones I’ve had yet. They especially feel very
stable laterally (side to side) and I have a sense that
they’ll keep my feet and ankles safe. One problem has
been finding music that is in the right rhythm for my
steps, but one by one I’ve found songs in my collection
that fit in beats per minute. Now I’m up to around 10
songs and I keep adding. I’d recommend Nike+ shoes
for anyone who wants to exercise regularly whether it’s
walking or running, or a combination. Add a compatible
iPod or iPhone and you’re all set.

Confessions of a
by Magnus | magnus@shufflegazine.com
It’s probably safe to assume that Nokia is going to be
successful with their Comes With Music program, under
which a customer who buys a Nokia X6 gets unlimited
access for 12 months to the around four million songs
Nokia has to offer. After that time runs out they can either
purchase another compatible Nokia phone and keep
getting more music, or Nokia has said that any music
the customer downloads are theirs to keep forever. I
would say that Nokia’s announcement represents a great
option for consumers, and a kick in the behind for Apple
who now must be looking with increased interest on the
Middle East. Already on the night of the announcement
in Beirut, I said that I’d probably buy the Nokia X6 just
to get the unlimited music and not even bother putting
a SIM card in it to use it as a phone. Now, I don’t know
if that’ll happen yet, but I do think Nokia has something
interesting on their hands here, that may change a lot of
how things work today. If I could get access to as many
songs as I would like and download them at my leisure I
guess I would listen to a lot more music. Apple’s iTunes
on my Mac forms a great partnership with my iPhone
and iPod, but I obviously have to pay for the music.
And since there’s no music in what’s on offer in the UAE
iTunes store, it means that many customers are shut out
of getting music legally through iTunes in the Middle East.
Perhaps the question now is whether Apple can actually
be successful with a full iTunes store in the Middle East,
when and if they bring it here. Nokia may say they’re
the biggest seller of music players in the world and they
may have a great idea in Comes With Music, but let’s
not for a second think that we can count Apple out yet.
Underestimate Cupertino at your peril, Nokia.

The cheating fanboy
by Ghoonk
I've been thinking. The iPhone is truly a piece of work.
It's build quality is second to none. The operating system
is so simple that almost anyone can get accustomed to
it in a matter of days. It's THE phone to beat and until
the Nexus One came along, everything else just paled
in comparison, where smartphones are concerned.
Also, until the Nexus One came along, Android wasn't
really a threat, and neither was Symbian, Windows
Mobile, or Maemo. But when Google had HTC stick a
serious engine under the hood of what was previously a
great handling car with a weedy engine- I have a friend
with a Mazda Miata who'd be able to identify with this
analogy- the Nexus One became a serious contender, a
threat to the outright dominance of the iPhone. A 1GHz
Snapdragon processor under the hood, a couple of
tweaks, and Google closed the gap between the leading
Android phone and the status quo, the iPhone. Not
completely, but enough to rattle Steve's cage, especially
when recent analyst reports showed that sales and
usage of devices running the Android operating system
have doubled in the last quarter, and are now steadily
gaining market share. Compared to the past, where
iPhone updates were few and oh-so-infrequent, and Mr
Jobs wouldn't even bother commenting on Android's
growth in the market, the tune seems to be changing.
In the recent- and now infamous- Apple Town Hall
meeting, Jobs made the following declarations about the
iPhone: Apple will deliver aggressive updates to iPhone
iPhone is THE
phone to beat
that Android/Google won't be able to keep up with;
iPad is up there with the iPhone and Mac as the most
important products Jobs has been a part of; Regarding
the Lala acquisition, Apple was interested in bringing
those people into the iTunes team; and the next iPhone
coming is an A+ update. What that tells us is that Apple
is now reacting to the onslaught of Android devices that
can only get more aggressive in the coming months.
This also means an overall better user experience
from quick bug fixes and feature introductions. And for
Apple to take Google seriously enough to call Google's
"Do No Evil" mantra "a load of crap", directly criticize
Google's shift from search services to selling- really
more marketing than selling- phones, and the rumour
that Apple will reduce its involvement with Google where
search services and map content is concerned, all clearly
indicate that whatever Google is doing, it's doing it right,
and Apple cannot rest on its laurels. While Google's at
it, Symbian's gone open-source, Maemo is making a
resurgence in the nerd market, as is Windows Mobile.
(Or I should say "Windows Phone".) Apple is feeling the
heat, and they are doing something about it. We are
better off for it, thanks to Google's Android blitzkrieg.
All that said though, I think it'll be years before Android
beats the iPhone, so don't sell your iPhone just about
yet, but stay tuned because a lot of exciting things are
happening.

After my interview with a Monster representative
at CES recently, I was given a box with Monster’s
Turbine Pro Gold Edition earphones. I guess I call them
earphones, but Monster goes with the term “in-ear
speakers.”
When I first used them they kept sliding out of my
years and I was thinking that the review would not be
very positive. However, I changed the soft tip, the bud,
to a more cone-shaped one and now the buds slide
into my ears easier and stay put.
The Turbine Pro Gold earphones are built like tanks
with an all metal construction. I think you could drive a
car over them without hurting them at all. The turbine-
like and shiny gold design make these earphones
really stand out.
In terms of sound these earphones are amazing. They
seem to bring out more detail, more bass and more
treble than any others I’ve tried. I’m probably revealing
my age here, but listening to Morten Harket’s falsetto
in “Take on me” revealed some nuances I’ve not
experienced before when using these earphones.
Really, the only significant downside I see is the price.
But if you can stomach the price, these earphones
will give you just about the best sound you’ve ever
experienced provided the source of the audio is high-
enough quality. As it is, I can’t see any other option
than to give these earphones top marks.

Monster Turbine Pro Gold Edition
Info: shuffle.to/monsterturbineprogold
Price: AED 1,102 (tentative)
Pros: Amazing sound; all-metal construction;
passive sound isolation; cord that doesn’t tangle
easily; comes with protective case and different
ear buds
Cons: Pricey; no mic or controls for iPhone
The M-Audio
MicroTrack II is a
mobile digital audio
recorder that is capable
of capturing CD-quality
audio and saving it onto
a Compact Flash card. The
stereo files are stored as either
WAV (non-compressed) or MP3
(compressed) in quality up to
320kbps, 24-bit and 96kHz. Audio
can be input through a 1/8-inch
port or two 1/4-inch ports. There
is an included T-shaped stereo mic
that plugs in to the 1/8-inch jack.
It is very good, but picks up every
little sound, which makes it less
useful for interviews, for example.
With the two 1/4-inch jacks you
can record two separate sounds or
voices onto the left and right track
of the stereo file, thereby giving
you more flexibility in editing later.
You can control the gain (volume)
on each channel individually or
combined during recording, which
is great, so you can achieve
better overall balance in the
recording. One thing that annoys
me is that the MicroTrack doesn't
automatically sense what mics
are plugged in, so if you change
mics you have to manually switch
input in the menus on the screen;
Once your audio is recorded to
the CF card, you can either take
the card out and put it in a card
reader in your Mac or connect the
MicroTrack to the Mac using a USB
cable. In summary, the MicroTrack
is a device with a narrow target
audience. It's certainly not for
everyone, and for many who need
to record it's overkill. But for those
who want the best possible audio
quality in a small, portable device,
it's a great choice.

The P-Flip is a small, but rather
ingenious piece of gear, that you
may want to consider adding to
your collection. It gives you the
functionality of a simple dock as well
as an extended battery in one small
package. Basically you slide in the
iPhone to to the dock connector on
one side and on the other side is the
small battery with charge indicator,
and USB port. In terms of how much
power it has, on an iPhone 3GS that
had just shut down because it had
no juice left, it brought the iPhone’s
battery meter up to full in just under
two hours. After that it seemed to
give another 10% or thereabouts
to the iPhone charge. Comparing it
to the Case Mate Fuel that I usually
get two full charges with, it’s a bit
disappointing. Nonetheless, I can’t
see any other way but than to give the
P-Flip top marks. You get two items in
one, a dock and a battery, at a price
that you would pay for either one on
their own. If you want something very
small that combines the two, which is
great for traveling for example, then

These are two 500GB notebook-
size external hard drives. LaCie
used famous designer Philippe
Starck for this hard drive, and it’s
undeniably stylish. A thick sheet
of aluminum- 2mm according
to LaCie, but it seems much
thicker- wraps around the drive,
with a very rugged surface.
LaCie claims this thick piece of
metal will both protect the drive
from physical harm as well as
dissipate heat. The G-Drive mini
is also covered in aluminum but
the design is very different, and
although not as striking as Starck’s
design, it’s more practical, I think.
G-Technology put a heat sink
on the underside of the drive so
that when put on a flat surface
there’s plenty of room underneath
the drive for air to circulate. It’s
perhaps not as stylish as the LaCie
drive, but it’s no ugly duckling
either. In fact, they’ve mimicked
Apple’s design concept pretty
well, and the G-Drive mini will
look great right next to a Mac

Info: shuffle.to/laciestarck
Price: AED 470
Pros: Bus powered; rugged
design; embedded USB cable
Cons: Heavy; gets pretty hot
Pro as well as a MacBook Pro,
not to mention any number of PC
computers. G-Technology also
put two FireWire 800 ports on the
back of the G-Drive Mini in addition
to a USB port. If you do video or
audio editing or other similar highly
demanding tasks you’ll appreciate
the higher sustained throughput
that FireWire offers. In the box
you’ll find a FireWire 400 to 800
cable so you can connect it to
those ports as well. In terms of
performance, the two drives are
practically even when it comes to
writing to them. When combining
writing with reading (duplicating
content) the G-Drive wins with a
considerable margin, however.
In conclusion, it’s perhaps a bit
unfair to compare these two drives
because they have somewhat
different target audiences. In
terms of speed the G-Drive Mini
trumps the LaCie drive. FireWire
ports will be a good idea for
many users, and although the
LaCie drive is stylish, I just think
that G-Technology’s design is
smarter, lighter and makes for an
all around more attractive hard
drive, even at a significantly higher
price. Unfortunately, it seems that
G-Technology doesn’t distribute
in the region but you can buy their
drive from them online, as well as
from other web sites.

The Dicota shoulder bag is perfect storage for your
12 to 14 inch notebook, and it has enough space to
store your documents too. It’s the only one of its kind
that has a built-in iPod controller that is compatible
with almost any iPod version there is. The touchpad
is connected to the strap so you have easy control,
allowing you to enjoy your music while you’re on the
go. There are also a side and middle pockets for easy
storage, and it has a padded notebook sleeve inside
to protect your notebook at all times. You can easily
take the sleeve out and leave the shoulder bag. The
adjustable shoulder strap has shoulder padding, and
there’s a water-proof zipper to protect those precious
things inside your bag. Unfortunately, due to its large
size you need to think twice if you’re a petite person
about buying this bag, since it tends to be difficult to
manage and carry at the same time. But nevertheless,
its high density foam should protect your notebook
from any knocks and blows. The shock absorbing
properties will keep their shape, so no matter how
busy your day is, and you can rest assured that your
Dicota bag will work for you as it should in any
circumstances.

Do you know how fun it is to run ethernet cables
around your home to create a network? Usually it
isn’t at all. Wireless can alleviate this difficulty for
most purposes, but often factors such as walls,
appliances and radio interference can severely affect
speed and reliability. The Belkin Gigabit Powerline
Adapters can offer another solution that can be very
worthwhile alternative, providing ample speed with
easy installation.
The Starter Kit comes with two adapters that are
plugged into two separate electrical outlets in your
home to provide a bridge for networking over the
electrical wires. The adaptors can deliver “up to”
1000Mbps of bandwidth, plenty for streaming media
from one device to another, making it pretty useful for
iTunes and other media sharing over a local network.
Individual result will vary greatly of course; using the
electric outlets in my apartment I was only able to
get bandwidth of “under 200 Mbps”, as indicated
by the light on the devices. This was still more than
enough bandwidth to easily transfer very large files
from one machine to another in just a few minutes
though, so even in under less than optimal conditions
performance can be very good.
One might worry about the security of running a
network over electric wiring, especially if in a shared
housing situation like an apartment, but the Belkin
Gigabit Powerline adaptors have built-in encryption,
preventing others from tapping into the network even
with like devices. And new encryption keys can be
created with a touch of a button on each of the units,
making security easy. While this is not necessarily
the most preferable way to set up a network, when
physical limitations prevent the more standard
methods these adaptors can be a tremendous benefit.

This Canon printer is a big and
heavy multifunction machine that
can scan, print in black and white,
and fax. Setting it up is easy and
with drivers for Windows as well
as Mac OS X it should fit right in,
in most settings. When powered-
down in sleep mode it took the
printer 45 seconds to warm up
and start printing. Once going it
produced a 68 page full-color PDF
(printed in black and white) in 6 min
20 sec, which equates to about 10
pages per minute. Making a copy
of the same 68 pages took only 2
min 24 seconds. Scanning an A4
page the printer managed in 24
seconds. Printer output is, as can
be expected, very good, especially
with black text that appears very
crisp and clear. Since it’s only black
and white, anything in color will
be rendered into what the printer
thinks is an equivalent tone of gray,
something that doesn’t always turn
out so great, but we can’t really
fault the printer for that. All in all
this is a big printer that produces
high-quality black and white prints.
That it can also scan and fax is
very nice addition, and it would be
eminently suited for a small office
or a small workgroup in a larger
organization.

Speck Pixelskin iPhone case
Info: shuffle.to/pixelskin
Price: AED 95
Pros: Plenty of protection for the iPhone; Covers
the area around the home button; Available in seven
colors
Cons: No screen protector included
Speck makes some really cool products for Macs,
iPhone, iPod and other things as well. The Pixelskin for
iPhone has been around for quite a while, but it’s been
updated for new iPhone models. It’s made out of fairly
soft material, but the thickness and the special design
with square blocks that cover the entire top, sides
and back of the iPhone all offer good protection from
bumps and drops. As with so many iPhone cases it
offers no protection for the screen however and Speck
does not include any screen protector either. You will
find holes for the mute switch, camera lens, bottom
dock, speaker and mic, as well as the headphone
jack. In conclusion I think the Pixelskin stands out
well in the crowded market for iPhone cases. It’s not
outstanding, but if you like this sort of case you should
consider it.

With the a550, Sony is getting into a very tough
segment of the DSRL market. Priced at AED 3,599
with a 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6 kit lens it’s taking on Nikon
D500 and Canon 500D, two very good cameras.
Looking at the main specifications the a550 has 14.2
megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, a 3 inch LCD display,
takes SD card and MemoryStick, in-camera image
stabilization, ISO range from 200 to 12,800 and it can
shoot up to 5 fps (7 with reduced autofocus ability).
When it really counts, in shooting functionailty and
photo quality, the a550 delivers. Even in tricky
sitautions it seems to calculate exposures correctly,
and autofocus is typically quick and finds the right
focus plane. If you’re looking for a DSLR that you will
shoot mostly in automatic mode, the a550 is a good
choice.
Personally, my main issue with this camera, as with the
a200 and a300 series from Sony, is the build quality.
It’s not that it’s necessarily that bad, it’s that it feels
like it’s that bad. Many customers who consider this
camera will probably not even notice, but for more
experienced photographers the a550 just feels very
plastic. That keeps the weight down and of course
also the price, so perhaps we shouldn’t be too
tough on Sony for that. The same feeling of plastic is
completely carried through to the 18-55mm kit lens.
Sony has not put a small display on the top right of the
camera, next to the shutter release button, where
I’m so used to it being from my Nikon D90.
Perhaps it’s just that: I’m so used to it
being there that it makes
me miss it. Perhaps
this is something
I would get used
to if I used the
a550 for a longer period of time. For new or casual
photographers this will more than likely not even be an
issue.
What’s most puzzling about the a550, especially
considering it has a great LCD display and Live View
mode, is the omission of video recording. Yes, the
a550 cannot record video. All the other gizmos you’ve
come to expect of current DSLRs and then some are
there, like face detection, plenty of scene modes,
image stabilization, sensor cleaning, etc. One thing
that Sony added that can help save a good shot in
certain situations is automatic HDR shooting. With
the High Dynamic Range function, the camera takes
two shots at different exposure settings and combines
them into one shot to therefore capture more of the
highlights and shadows than one single exposure
could. Given that advanced functionality, it’s even more
confusing that they didn’t put in video.
This camera is clearly for those who want the better
photo quality offered by a DSLR, and the flexibility of
being able to swap lenses, but also the fully-automatic
shooting modes offered. If you’re even once in a while
shooting manually, fully or partially, this is not really a
good choice for you. And the lack of video recording is
strange and will be a deal-breaker for some potential
buyers.

Game developer 2k Marin has been in the unenviable
position of being tasked with creating Bioshock 2, a
sequel to a game that’s considered by most gamers as
nothing short of legendary.
So, how does one create a worthy sequel to a brilliant
original such as Bioshock? Well, one way is to come
up with a game that’s technically superior than the
original. Considering that consoles have not taken
a generation leap since the original game, and the
original looked so great to start with, that’s hard.
The other option is to take a really good game, an
interesting plot, top notch gameplay and develop it
further, expanding on everything that’s good about the
original, and that’s what 2K Marin have done.
Bioshock 2 is set about 10 years after the events
of the original took place. The underwater city of
Rapture, created by Ayn Rand-inspired business
magnate Andrew Ryan has been taken over by a
female antagonist named Dr Sofia Lamb. Instead of
playing Jack Ryan, you now play a Big Daddy, one of
the most memorable foes from the original game. Big
Daddies are known for protecting
Little Sisters, who in turn gather
ADAM, which is the magical
substance that helps you grow
and develop new powers. The
storyline is as rich as ever and
incredibly indulging.
Playing the game for first
level or two, you may
be tempted to dismiss
it as being just the
same as the original.
However, once you’re
past the initial levels, you’ll
notice all the upgrades
added in Bioshock 2.
For instance, you can
now use a plasmid and
a weapon at the same
time. Plasmids give
you special powers
such as the ability to
incinerate people with
BioShock 2
by Hitesh Uchil | Middle East Gamers (MEGamers.com)
your fingers or throw electric bolts from your hands.
You can upgrade your plasmids to level two, which
increases their effect.
While the gameplay is an improvement, the real winner
for Bioshock 2 is the relationship between the Big
Daddy and his Little Sister. You’ll be tasked to care for
the Little Sister and save her from all the zombie-like
splicers that are bent on killing her, as she harvests
ADAM from a corpse. Once you have secured the little
sister from the splicers, you must decide if you want
to save her or harvest her for even more ADAMs. Your
relationship with the Little Sisters will play an important
part in the game.
It’s hard to find much fault in BioShock 2, other than
the fact that it’s too much like the original. Rapture
feels the same it did in the original, and hence
the excitement of discovering a whole new retro
underwater world is gone. The enemies can get a tad
bit repetitive as well. Thankfully, the storyline is so
engaging, you’re bound to forgive the repetitiveness.
Overall, BioShock 2 is a much more involving
experience than its predecessor. The world of Rapture
is as scenic as ever and playing Big Daddy is a
memorable experience. Hollywood please take note –
this is how good sequels are made.

Mass Effect 2
by Mufaddal Fakhruddin, Middle East Gamers (MEGamers.com)
Being a passionate gamer, I hardly
ever play a game twice. But I played
Mass Effect 2 twice on the Xbox
360 and once again on the PC. In
fact, it’s the only game I have played
more than once back to back. It’s
the masterful story telling, the deep
characters, the dynamic combat,
and the epic presentation that pulled
me in repeatedly.
Regardless of how you start,
the basic plot remains: Human
colonies across the galaxy are
disappearing. Shepard is revived,
after a disastrous attack on the
Normandy, by a controversial
pro-human organization called the
Cerberus. Under the watchful eye of
the sinister Illusive Man, he’s pawned
into investigating the forces behind
the mystery. As Shepard you must
now find and recruit the best across
the galaxy and convince them to
fight with you on a mission that is
immediately termed as suicidal.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that the
myriad of characters is what adds
depth to the story, which otherwise,
isn’t really remarkable. Your squad
will be made up of scientists,
soldiers, rebels and even criminals.
Each one is as complex as the
others, with their own backgrounds.
It is they and their stories that drive
the plot, each compelling with their
own arcs, their own challenges and
their own way of dealing with them.
BioWare has done wonders with the
Unreal Engine 3 and it is apparent.
Mass Effect 2 looks significantly
more gorgeous than the first did
with diverse range of effects and
environments combining to create
a deeply immersive and believable
world. On the technical side of
things, we encountered no frame
rate drops, which goes a long way
in keeping the combat dynamic
and spectacular. There have been
complaints about disc lockups and
unpolished environment interactions,
but I didn’t encounter any of that.
The score and voice acting is of
BioWare standards, i.e. nothing short
of fantastic.
In brief, Mass Effect 2 is individually
brilliant in every aspect: the
combat, the writing, voice acting,
visuals, score and direction comes
together to create an unmatchable
experience.

Lenovo X100e
Info: shuffle.to/lenovox100e
Price: AED 1,959
Pros: Stylish, light and
compact; great keyboard; good
performance (caveat below)
Cons: Short battery life; very
poor performance in battery-
saving mode
Lenovo calls the X100e a
“professional-grade entry
ultraportable”. It sits between
netbooks and notebooks, and at
AED 1,959 it could have been a
great buy if it wasn’t for poor battery
life and performance.
But let’s start out with the good. The
X100e is a very stylish computer,
especially the red model, and it’s
also light and slim. In fact, it’s small
and light enough to slide into almost
any briefcase, or even a lady’s
pocket book without being noticed
too much. In spite of this, the screen
(11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixels) is
bright and crisp and the keyboard is
better than on any other computer
of this size that I’ve tried. The
AMD Athlon Neo NV40 processor
running at 1.6GHz keeps Windows
7 running at a very comfortable
speed, presumably helped by the
4GB of RAM. Applications, including
Microsoft Office, perform quickly
and without significant wait. There’s
plenty of storage space on the
320GB hard drive, and you can
always expand that with three USB
ports and a media card reader.
Now to the not so good aspects of
the X100e. The main issue is poor
battery life. According to Lenovo,
you can get a three cell battery rated
at 2.2 hours or a six cell battery
rated at 5.1 hours. We tested the
model with the six cell battery and
never saw anything close to 5.1
hours even with the most battery-
saving mode enabled. In practice
we got just over three hours of
use on battery-saving mode and
almost an hour less on full settings.
That may not be much of an issue,
but on power-saving mode the
X100e becomes like a snail stuck in
mud, meaning painfully slow. Just
waking it up from sleep strains your
patience, and doing almost anything
in that mode requires a significant
wait.
In terms of price, the X100e hits
higher-end netbooks, and it’s
not that much bigger in size than
computers in that segment. The
battery life doesn’t stand a chance
compared to most netbooks
however, and to get more battery
life you have to strangle the
performance leaving the computer
almost unusable. If you can accept
about two to two and a half hours of
use running on battery, this will be
one fast and great looking portable
computer. It combines some of the
best aspects of netbooks as well
as notebooks, but also introduces
some issues of its own.

For Mac there’s no one place where you can find all your
apps. Web sites like macupdate.com and osx.iusethis.
com can be great in finding apps and seeing what other
users think of the apps, but often a web search works
just as well. Looking for an FTP app for Mac? Type in
“ftp application mac” in your search engine of choice
and you’ll get a number of options and reviews.
An interesting option for getting apps for Mac, that is like
Apple’s App Store in many ways, is appbodega.com.
It offers a Mac OS X application with which you can
browse and search for apps, both paid-for and free.

Thunderbird (www.mozillamessaging.com, free) from the
guys who brought you Firefox should be on everyone’s
list of apps to try. Of course Apple’s built-in Mail app
covers what most users need. There’s also Microsoft
Entourage (shuffle.to/entourage), which comes as a part
of their Office for Mac suite. Mailsmith (www.mailsmith.
org, free) is getting a bit old, but still has quite a lot to
offer. Don’t expect IMAP support though.
Most of us have to have some way to collect all the
digital scraps we gather on a daily basis. A digital
notebook takes all your text, pictures, and anything
else you can throw at it and keeps it accessible. Circus
Ponies Notebook (www.circusponies.com, $49.95),
Devon Think (shuffle.to/devonthink, from $49.95) and
Yojimbo (www.barebones.com/products/Yojimbo, $39)
are three advanced options. If you want to share across

Sure, there’s Adobe Photoshop
for image editing, but it’s
expensive and very complex.
For most of you it’s better to
look at something simpler and
cheaper and Pixelmator is a great
alternative. At $59 from www.
pixelmator.com it’s a must-have
item in your Applications folder.
For something simpler, ImageWell
(xtralean.com/IWOverview.

Of course you want to enjoy
movies with your Mac, so
how do you get them
onto your computer and
watch them if you don’t
buy them from iTunes?
(And as you may know
there’s no such content available
in any iTunes store in the Middle East.)
Perian (perian.org, free) is probably the thing you
should install first. It’s like a Swiss Army Knife for video
support in Mac OS X. HandBrake (handbrake.fr, free)
will take your movies from DVDs and convert them as
well as convert most formats you download from various
sources. Flip4Mac, or Windows Media Components for
QuickTime (shuffle.to/flip4mac, free), is a must if you’re
likely to have to watch any Windows Media format videos
and let’s face it, we all have to at some point. VLC (www.

There’s nothing easier to
set up and use than Dropbox
(getdropbox.com, free for 2GB
space). With Dropbox you can
share files and folders between
any number of computers with

Sharetool (shuffle.to/sharetool,

A Mac is a great choice for anyone wanting to create
web pages and sites, whether that is for personal or
professional use. RapidWeaver (www.
realmacsoftware.com/rapidweaver, $79)
makes creating great looking sites as
easy as dragging, dropping and filling in
some information. You thought iWeb was
good? Check out RapidWeaver! If you’re
into some coding then check out Coda
(panic.com/coda, $99). It’s an integrated
editor (HTML, CSS, JS, etc.), FTP client
and SSH client.

Middle East goes MMO Crazy
by Hitesh Uchil | Middle East Gamers (MEGamers.com)
Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) games may not be
a new concept, but ever since the success of Blizzard’s
World of Warcraft, there has been a boom in the
number of companies creating video games to cater
to the needs of MMO enthusiasts. It’s easy to see why:
Blizzard’s World of Warcraft, based on the Warcraft RTS
series, took the world by storm. Not only was the game
completely online, but charged subscribers a monthly fee
to play. The game has a record 11.5 million subscribers,
and in 2008 Blizzard announced over $5bn in revenue.
To date, World of Warcraft along with its expansion packs
control over 60% of the MMO market.
The MMO phenomenon has made a massive impact
in the US, Europe and many Asian countries, and with
good reason. Many gaming critics believe that MMO
games are the future of PC gaming as they effectively
curb piracy. While World of Warcraft uses a monthly
subscription fee revenue model, practically every other
MMO game uses an in-game purchase model to earn
revenue. It’s a smart way of making money; if you have
10 million users and only 10% spend one dollar, you’re
still making a million dollars. Plus the in-game purchase
micro transaction model also means that players don’t
have to pay to play if they don’t want to. “It gives players
a chance to experience the game without any cost and
hence it’s more appealing to them,” says Taj Deluria,
Senior Operations Manager at Tahadi, an online gaming
company founded by former Maktoob CEO, Samih
Toukan.
Fadi Mujahid from Game Power 7 agrees, and they use
a similar revenue model for their MMOPRG (Massively
Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) Arabic Rappelz.
Game Power 7 is one of the first companies in the region
to localize a game for the Arab audience. Realizing
the potential of the MMO market and with the Jabbar
Internet Group to back them up, Tahadi have joined the
race. Joining them this month will be UAE telecom du,
and with a number of other companies expected to join
the MMO race, it looks like 2010 is clearly the year for an
online gaming boom in the Middle East. Here are some of
the top contenders for the MMO crown at the moment.

Tahadi’s first MMOPRG for the region is set to launch in
April and we can’t wait. Next to World of Warcraft, Runes
of Magic is one of the most popular MMORPG games in
the world and we’re excited to get a version customized
for our region. The game will be available both in Arabic
and English. We expect it will be quite the challenge to
localize this game for the Saudi market with the world
“Magic” on the game though as the media-censoring
officials in Saudi don’t take too kindly to that word. It’ll
be interesting to see how this game is customized for
the local market. Note that the game has now changed
name to Runes of Might.

Empire of Sports: www.eosarabia.com
UAE telecom du enters the world of MMOs with Empire
of Sports, which as the name suggests revolves around
sporting events. As the first sporting MMO game, they
set themselves apart in a primarily RPG-dominated
space. du’s localization efforts include adding popular
Middle East-based landmarks to the game including the
Burj Al Arab from Dubai and the Sphinx from Egypt. Parts
of the game also have a very traditional Arabic souq feel
to it. Players can compete with each other in sports such
as tennis, football, basketball and skiing. The game also
has a prominent social element to the game allowing
players to interact with each other.
Arabic Reppelz: rappelz.gamepower7.com
Game Power 7 is one of the first companies in the Middle
East to focus on MMO games. They claim that their
Arabic version of popular MMORPG Rappelz has over
23,000 players. Next on their agenda is an MMO sports
game and an MMO racing game, so they’ve already got
some amount of competition from the likes of Exalight,
Crazy Karts and Empire of Sports. They’ve got a head
start as far as MMOs are concerned. It remains to be
seen how they face up to the competition.

Exalight: www.exalightarabia.com
du’s second MMO game is a space-age racer,
which takes a fantasy-based approach rather than
incorporating real-world Middle East elements. In the
game, players must place their allegiance with one of
four clans and win races with vehicles called sliders to
advance. Think Wipeout as a MMO and you’ll get a fair
idea of what Exalight is like.

If Mario Kart was an MMO, this is probably what it would
look like. Fast paced, exciting gameplay and lots of
power-ups to help you through the game and against
your opponents. The game has a sizeable following
among players in China, and Tahadi are Arabizing it for
the Middle East region. The game is already available for
download and at 243MB, it isn’t massive. The game’s
best suited for younger, more casual gamers who like
fact paced action. It looks like they’ll have some amount
of competition from du’s version of Exalight. Only time will
tell which game wins the hearts of gamers in this region.

Touch is everywhere these days. From smart phones to
tablets and more, we increasingly control them just by
touching the screen on the device. There are two main
technologies for touchscreens: resistive and capacitive.
We thought we’d try to sort this out and talk about the
characteristics of the two.
Resistive
This is the most common technology for touchscreens
so far. Basically, a resistive screen requires physical
pressure to register an action. It has layers of a kind of
film and measures the change in resistance between the
layers that happens when something pressures the layers
together. This means that almost anything can be used
to push the layers together, like a stylus, a finger, a nail
etc. Although many resistive screens have less visibility
outdoors in sunlight than capacitive ones, they are in
many ways more useful. This is because you can use
them with almost anything and they operate in a wide
range of climates in terms of temperature, humidity etc.
They are also more accurate than capacitive screens,
often down to individual pixels, especially when used with
something like a stylus. Finally, they are typically cheaper
to make than capacitive screens. Recent developments
in resistive screen technology means that in some ways
it’s catching up. Nokia’s N900, for example, has a very
sensitive resistive screen that is closing in on what the
capacitive ones offer.

Capacitive
Although iPhone wasn’t the first device using a capacitive
screen, Apple’s smartphone certainly showed off what
using this technology can mean for a device. Instead of
registering pressure between layers of some material, like
a resistive screen, a capacitive one measures the change
in electrical current that occurs when certain objects
touch the screen. This only works with particular items,
like your finger, and not with a stylus or a nail. That’s both
the capacitive screen’s strength and weakness. You can
with a light swipe go between photos on your iPhone,
but you can’t use it with a stylus or tap it with something
else. Also on the downside is that it’s not as exact as a
resistive screen as it registers a touch over a larger area.
It can not pinpoint a touch on a single pixel, for example.
Capacitive screens are also capable of supporting multi-
touch, like the “pinch” movement that you can do on an
iPhone to zoom in. However, recent developments show
promise for multi-touch with resistive screens soon.

Apple’s iPod has become an icon of gadgets and
consumer electronics since it was first launched on
October 23, 2001. Now in it’s fifth generation, the iPod
classic is basically the same form factor and design as
the first one. The first iPod only had 5GB of storage
space and connected with FireWire 400 cable, common
in those days on all Macs. And would you believe that
it was Mac-only for some time until iTunes came out for
Windows in 2003? That first model also had a physical
click-wheel that actually rotated and the four main
buttons, including play and pause, were placed on a
circle around the click-wheel. Apple’s iPod has come a
long way and coming up to the ten year anniversary next
year should mean we’re in store for even more exciting
things. Read more about iPod at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Ipod.
Did you know that iTunes really started its life as an
application called SoundJam developed by Casady &
Greene? SoundJam ran on Mac OS 9, and it wasn’t until
version 2.0, as iTunes, it became available for Mac OS
X. Released in 2000, iTunes became the new standard
for digital jukebox software, and continued that with the
arrival of the iTunes store in 2003. By then, iTunes was
already up to version 4.0. The most recent version, 9.0,
added features such as iTunes LP, Genius Mixes and
more. Read more about iTunes at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/

MacBook
The main attraction of the white MacBook is
affordability. Inside the white polycarbonate unibody
you’ll find a 13.3-inch LED display that has enough
resolution for most uses, a Core2Duo processor of
2.26GHz, RAM up to 4GB, an optical drive, and a
hard drive up to 500GB.

MacBook Air
The MacBook Air is definitely the ultimate Mac in terms of portability. But
even though it weighs in at about only 1kg, it’s no lightweight in terms of
performance. With a processor up to 2.13GHz, 2GB RAM, and 128GB
hard drive, it should perform most tasks with ease. An external SuperDrive
is optional.

Selecting what Mac to buy
can sometimes be daunting,
especially if you’re new to Macs.
Therefore we put together this
short guide to the different
models of Macintosh computers
currently on offer from Apple.
This guide only offers some brief
pointers. To evaluate what you
should buy, we advise you to
spend some time with the Mac
in a store.

MacBook Pro
For the technology you can find inside them, the MacBook Pros are surprisingly compact. The smallest MacBook
Pro, the 13-inch model, sports the same long battery life as its two siblings. The 15-inch and 17-inch models are
obviously larger, but also more powerful and have gorgeous, large displays. All models have fast graphics, and
expansion options via ExpressCard or SD card slots. Specifications vary, with up to 3.06GHz Core2Duo processors,
16GB of RAM, and 500GB of hard drive. If it is power you want, MacBook Pro is your choice.

Mac mini
The introductory desktop Mac model, petite as it is, still packs quite
a punch. It comes with a Core 2 Duo processor of up to 2.66GHz,
which is plenty for most of what you’d want to do. And with up to
4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, and SuperDrive as standard, the
mini is well prepared for many tasks. It’s limitation lies in that it’s
hard to upgrade. Your only option is pretty much to connect things
externally via USB or FireWire. There’s even a Mac mini especially
meant to be used as a server. It has two 500GB hard drives instead
of a SuperDrive to increase storage space. ﻲﻨﻴﻣ كﺎﻣ

iPod shuffle
This miniscule iPod is different from the other iPods, not just in terms of size
and that it has no display, it also talks to you. Controlled by clicking on a
button on the cord to the headset, the iPod shuffle will tell you what’s playing.
It’s available in five colors as 2GB or 4GB.

Install extensions in Google Chrome
by Magnus | magnus@shufflegazine.com
Google Chrome is one of the latest web
browsers to enter the already pretty
crowded browser market. It offers
some new and exciting functionalities
and characteristics and it’s become my
browser of choise in a fairly short period
of time. You can download it for free for
Linux, Mac OS X and Windows from www.
google.com/chrome.

| TUTORIAL
Extensions
Much like Firefox, Google Chrome supports extensions
or add-ons. Basically these are small programs that
add functionality to the browser or extend functionality
that is already there. There are so many extensions it’s
hard to pick out just a few but one that I rely on a lot
in the Xmarks extension with which I can synchronize
bookmarks between browsers and computers.
How to download
In Google Chrome on Mac go to the “Window” menu
and click on “Extensions”. In Linux and Windows, click
on the wrench icon and then “Exetensions.” Chrome
will likely tell you there are no extensions installed. Then
you can click “Browse extensions”. If you already have
some extensions installed, click “Get more extensions.”
From the extensions home page (chrome.google.com/
extensions) you can browse or search for extensions.
Once you’ve clicked on one to look at its individual
screen you click on “Install.” You will be asked for a
confirmation and if you click “Yes” the extension will be
downloaded and installed.

TUTORIAL |
Audacity is an open source audio editing application that is surprisingly capable, well in line with commercial
offerings. You can download it for free from audacity.sourceforge.net. Although we for this tutorial used the
version of Audacity for Mac OS X, the application is also available for Windows and Linux and everything we
show you here apply equally to all versions. We use Audacity to record and edit our Shufflegazine Tech Chat
podcast (shuffle.to/techchat) and we’ve found it a very mature, stable and capable application.

Preferences
By selecting “Preferences” in the “Audacity”
menu (“Edit” menu in Windows) you get
access to a wide range of settings for the
application. For example, you can select
from where the program should record and
to where it should play the audio back.
Under “Library” you find settings for MP3
export. You have to download and install the
free LAME MP3 encoder from lame.buanzo.
com.ar before you can export MP3 files from
Audacity.
Record
To start recording a new session, with
a document window open, just click on
the record button (red circle). Audacity
will start recording the sound with the
settings you’ve specified according to the
preferences (see above). When you want to
stop recording, click the stop button (yellow
square).

Amplify
You may need to make a section of your recording a
bit more or less loud. First select the part of the sound
you want to amplify, then select “Effect” > “Amplify”. By
specifying a positive value you make the sound louder
and by specifying a negative valye you make the sound
less loud. Be aware that as you increase the volume
artificially this way the sound is going to lose some
quality and if you crank it up too much it’s going to
seem increasingly horrible.
Quick edit
What I typically do for the Tech Chat podcast is
listen through the recording and edit out parts
that are not needed, some «uhm» and «aah» and
sounds like that. It’s basically with the intent to
make the recording flow a bit smoother and be
more pleasant to listen to. To do that you first
click and drag with the mouse over the piece of
the audio that you want to cut out. If you have a
recording with multiple tracks you have to make
sure you select all of them otherwise the audio will
not be in sync. Once you’ve made the selection
just hit the delete key on your keyboard.

Export
If you're producing audio that you
mean to use in some other application
you have to export it from Audacity
because Audacity's own format is not
very compatible with other applications.
Once your editing is done, select “Export”
in the “File” menu. You're then shown
a dialogue where you can select what
format you want to export as and options
for some formats. Be aware that export
can, just as applying some filters, take a
long time.
Noise removal
First you need to collect a sample of the background
noise in the clip you’re working with. To do this you
select a piece of the clip that has clear background
noise. Try to select a piece that has as little of other
sounds in it as possible to make the filter more
effective. So select a piece of background noise and
then select “Effect” > “Noise Removal”. Click on “Get
noise profile” and Audacity will process the sample. Go
back to the menu but this time click “OK.” Audacity will
apply the noise removal. Be prepared that it can take a
long time in some instances.
