    If you're saying, should I have a different or same W in the name to the logo? - again it's if you can make it work. Having the same - the plus is, it can tie the two together, the minus is if it doesn't...

    Looks like you've already made up your mind. Why bother asking for opinions then? Print is right. If you want to make money off your pictures, buy a good camera.

    Abarth, you can do pretty much everything with smart use of gradients and transparencies.

    Even if you dont plan to print anything big in a inmidiate future, is best to do as the guys above...

    Reply to Should I charge more than $29 for this sidewalk sign?
    Cosmo
    I don't know about pricing, but let me ask this:

    Is that the exact sign you are selling? Or are you offering custom signs in that style? If you are selling just that particular sign, you...

        ...almost here anyway, to be formally announced in the first quarter next year

        I was actually pondering getting a Mac Mini to use as a video podcast media center since I'm really getting into those...it's like TechTV has been revived via podcast hosts like Leo Laporte, Patrick Norton, John C. Dvorak, etc. And here comes this thing.

        I am disappointed in one thing on it however, I wish it had it's own hard drive built-in as I'd much rather use it for storage than to stream off a computer. What if your computer is off or in sleep mode?

        A tv-tuner would have been nice for Tivo-like capabilities, but perhaps that and the hard drive will be the next logical step for iTV 2.

            What the hell... I posted something in this section a while ago and it never showed up.

            That new shuffle is pretty slick. It's smaller than my old iPod remote!

            Only Disney movies though. I wonder if Apple will cave on the price point or if any other studios will join up.

              Hard drive. First thing that comes to mind is copy. That maybe something they don't want you to do. Or is it. How would the purchasing of a video work as far as copyrights go.

                    So they wouldn't mind the public copying to a DVD for example? Now the tunes you download from iTunes are coded in such a way that prevents you from copying to cd multible times, either 3-4 times. There is a way around this but Apple does have pirating on its mind.

                      I really would assume that an iTV w/ hard drive would be no different in handling DRM'ed media files, making use of authorized accounts, etc. It's absolutely no different than a Mac Mini or any other computer. Naturally video podcasts are free for distribution so that's no problem there.

                      Only Disney movies though. I wonder if Apple will cave on the price point or if any other studios will join up.
                      It looks like they're trying the same "pied piper" approach as they did with the TV shows. They didn't have many to start, and then here comes everyone else.

                        I would think one day you'd be able to order any movie anytime. When that day comes then copying movies may become a problem. RIAA comes to mind.

                          It sounds like several studios are hesitant to release movies for purchase. They want viewers to rent them. Jobs is vehemently against rentals.

                          It was obvious that Disney would lead the way. Jobs better hope that people start snatching up those films in record numbers or the other studios just might stay away.

                          In the long run I think it will work, especially once iTV (or whatever its release name will be) is released. I know I'll be buying one (mmm... Love the taste of that Apple Kool-Aid).

                              I can understand him not budging on music subscriptions, those are crap. However, considering the movie rental format already present, I wonder if it's such a good idea for him to ignore that? I really have no interest in buying iTunes movies at the moment, as in some cases most of those movies are priced too close to those prices and it's not hard to encode DVDs to iPod with the free Handbrake (very nice program).

                              I would be potentially interested in renting movies, though...so long as they are downloaded reasonably fast (30 min - 1 hour). PPV would be a competitor though, although their problem is that you have to follow their schedule. Unless you have one of those "on demand" PPV models, which would be quicker than iTunes.

                              Or better yet, a Netflix-type option. Considering Netflix's popularity, that could make a lot of sense.
