Installing Ubuntu Linux. Five Ways To Watch Our Video: Xbox 360 vs. AppleTV! m.revision3.com = Tekzilla on your cell phone, Find Lost Cameras, Complete HD adapter, AutoRuns and Macbook Hell
Ouch... Newsweek's Stephen Levy recycled his Macbook Air with a pile of newspapers, and blogger Michael Nygard missed his flight when the lack of a hard drive and ports on the back of his Air twigged TSA suspicion.
Freebie File Of The Week: AutoRuns for Windows "shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them." If you've been searching for a more complete way to figure out what starts up with Windows, this is it!
Wow, a lot of you have good things to say about Logitech's Z-2300, a 2.1 speaker set we didn't include in last week's roundup. They're priced about the same as the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 set we liked so much.
Gadget Of The Week? We've shown USB to hard drive adapters before, but NewerTech's USB 2.0 Universal Drive Adapter packs SATA and 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch IDE adapters into a single $30 device. Sweet!
Five ways to watch Tekzilla?
1) Load m.revision3.com in your cell phone's browser, and you can watch any Revision3 show on your cell phone.
2) You can always subscribe to Tekzilla in Miro or iTunes or the Zune software and the latest episode dowload automatically.
Just search for Tekzilla, or double click on the application feeds on the Subscription Options tab on Tekzilla.com.
Speaking of that Subscription Options tab, it has links to the RSS feeds for every format the show comes in, from XviD to WMV to MP4 and flash.
3) Right click on those links and copy the link location into your favorite RSS reader (or podcatcher) and you'll know just as soon as the latest episode is posted.
4) Watching Tekzilla in your living room? Roger streams his video to his HDTV using the Xbox 360. Patrick uses the AppleTV. Both machines do a good job, tho Patrick feels the AppleTV makes it easier to find podcasts w/out using a PC!
5) Other set top boxes? The Popcorn Hour A-100 (which Patrick keeps calling the Popcorn 100) does an amazing job pumping out 1080p video for $180, and even has a built in browser. We'll be showing it off in an upcoming episode.
Tim's wondering if we'd recommend using 64-bit edition of Vista to get around the memory cap on the 32-bit versions. If you were buying a new system... maybe. Otherwise, we wouldn't!
