New iPods Cracked over the weekend

Monday, September 17th, 2007

Thats right folks, they cracked the new iPods over the weekend. This crack went faster than the iPhone. Here is the story. All I can say is that the way open source works is amazing. Just think of how far along we could be in this world technology wise if there werent people wasting their time cracking locked code and everyone could just focus on ways to make it better..

New IPOD doomed with out iTunes

Friday, September 14th, 2007

Well it seems you may be doomed to use iTunes for you new iPod. Thanks to apple who seems to have gone out of their way to make the iPod not work with out itunes (according to this fine article). I am one of the poor saps who went and bought not just 1 but 2 of the new iPods. I got a new 80g classic, and a new nano. I sure hope someone is able to get these working in amarok or gtkpod because I HATE USING WINDOWS I have been winblows free for several years but now I had to install it just to get music on our new iPods.

Yesterday we were sitting around bored trying to decide where we wanted to go get rained on. After a little bit of discussion we decided to go to the Frio River. Its right around a 2 hour drive from our apartment. The original plan was to go to Garner State Park and play in the water or something, but the park was full and they would not let us in. We drove up the road a little further untli we found a good spot to park where we could access the river. We walked down to the river got on our tubes and floated down the river about a mile to this place called Happy Hollow. They charged us 2 bucks for an exit fee then a dollar per person to shuttle us back to our car. This was mine and Aprils first time to ever go tubing. Summer had been several times before. We had a really great time. We got a few pictures of the river (none with us in it though). You can check them out here.
