apple desk question
Hello fellow Apple fans. Can you tell me the name of the App that puts what you are listening to on the top left of the Desktop?
Loneliness leads to LogicThere was a day last week were I could not get a hold of anybody. At all. I go to the bookstore for solace during such instances. Down the street from it resides the Apple store. I went in just to look around with no particular goal at all. Like a magnet I was drawn in to a machine that was set up with a little keyboard. This demo mac had every software imaginable so I clicked on Logic Studio and it opened up to a Killers song. I was mesmerized by the fact you could peak behind the curtain sort of speak and see the architecture of the song. After reading the Logic page on Apple's website, I saw that they also had a Santigold remix song you could open in the program (see below). So, off I went and on impulse I bought an M-Audio Keystation 61es. Mind you, I don't know how to play anything. I need a nice patient piano chick to teach me "Poses", "Honey" and "I Know".
A little movie
Apple & industrial design
Friends say the roots of his success lie in his lateral thinking - finding the true appeal of an object, often ignoring the traditional approach to design. Inspiration comes from almost anywhere. The original candy-coloured iMac had its roots in gumdrops. The popular transparent Apple mouse came from thinking about how drops of water sit on a flat surface. An angle-poise desk lamp helped inspire the new iMac. The see-through outer casing of recent iBooks came from the look that food has when wrapped in clingfilm. The iPod is like a cigarette pack for those addicted to music instead of tobacco.
So far, the out of box and upgrading to Panther experiance has really impressed me. I love my new laptop. 'Nuff said.
I totally want one of these goofy ACME bags.
I'm the happy owner of a new Apple Powerbook. I'm going out of town, playing with it and I shall return. I've been meaning to post about the mail I got last week, mix cd, a book, but haven't had time. More later.
