I downloaded the new version of EOS Movie Recorder which lets your Canon 40D record video, this time on a Mac. So I downloaded it and installed it, but it would crash right away. Soon I found out, you need certain frameworks, in order to make the Application work. So here is what I did.
• I download this file, QT Source
• Go to the Packages folder in the DMG, and install Libraries and Plug – Ins
• Connect your Camera, and Fire Up the Applications, and record some awesome videos.
Bad News for the people who planned to pre order their new iPhone, and didn’t want to camp out in front an Apple Store. For the people who are making new pre ordered of their iPhone 3G[S] will have up to two weeks to get a phone. AT&T customers who do already have pre-orders in still have to line up at 7AM to nab a phone, but at least they’ve got a guaranteed slot if they show up, while the rest of the world will have to battle over remaining stock when Apple Stores open at 8AM and AT&T stores open to general customers at the same time. Looks like we might get a good riot or two out of this.
This is not a story about Steve Jobs or Apple (AAPL).
It’s not even a story about a Steve Jobs rumor.
It’s a story about a nasty piece of work called Palluxo Media, based in Vancouver, B.C., that just stooped to a new low.
As an online news outlet, Palluxo.com is all over the lot. Its current crop of stories includes pieces about Jewish and Bosnian genocides, Cuban spies, an Acapulco drug shootout and a David Carradine forensic photo.
But it also bills itself as Canada’s “Mac Dose of All Things Apple,” and that’s how it caught my attention last February, offering dubious investment advice (”it’s highly likely that the stock’s best days are over”) just before Apple began a 40-plus point march from $99 a share to more than $140.
“You fell for Palluxo?,” wrote “cynyc” — one of my regular readers — when I cited that quote as an attempt to spread FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) about Apple. “That site only exists to promote the agenda of Apple shorts [speculators betting that the stock will go down].”
I thought my reader was being overly cynical, but the recent history of Palluxo’s Steve Jobs coverage suggests he may be onto something. Continue reading “The Weirdest Steve Job Rumor yet”
