The thing is that I've encoded about ten movies with zero problems. I think...

    Some upgrades I'd like to see for Safari

    1. I'd like the bottom tool bar to be removed. Instead I'd like Apple to make use of gestures. For example, swiping the screen to the left and right with two fingers will switch between tabs. 2. Sometimes when I'm writing up a post the keyboard takes up enough of the screen that when I put my...

    Does your ipod intermittently lose response while loading a web page?

    I'm just curious if other peoples iPods do this since I don't remember my first one doing this. When I'm loading a web page in safari, I'll try to scroll down but my iPod won't respond for a second or two and it will do this intermittently until till the whole page is loaded, normal?

    Anyway to reflow a pdf document to make it iPod touch friendly?

    Well I do know about and its a neat webpage, but when I'm reading I do miss the proper layouts that you would get from downloading the ebook off of gutenberg as a pdf. The pdfs aren't meant to be read on such a small screen though and the text is too small to read comfortably...

    So I had my iPod exchanged and this one feels different...

    Ok so I had my iPod exchanged and safari feels much faster than it did before. The first time I opened up a few webpages I was really surprised how fast they opened up. Also, the screen feels much more sensitive to the touch. It's possible this is all in my head of course, and I don't have the...

    Been wondering a playable are NES/SNES games on the touch?

    I've been wondering this question for a while, and I'll probably end up jailbreaking eventually when I get a chance, but how playable are games? I'm guessing RPG games are pretty playable as they don't require precise input along with time accuracy, but what about games like Mario Bros. and Contra?

    Question about handbrake having difficulties encoding dark scenes

    I've tried doing a lot of different encoding settings to see what the best way to encode is and one persistent problem is that noticeable artificats show up in dark scences. For example in the begining of the first pirates of the caribbean movie, it starts off with a completely black scene and...

    Is Apple still trying to sneak in cheaper LCDS?

    I know there were issues before when Apple tried to sneak in a cheaper lcd when the iphone and touched first came out. I also know that manufacturers often use different lcd screens for the same product. So which one you get ends up being a bit of "luck of the draw". So I'm wondering, is Apple...

    So Samsung just announced a new chip similar to the ones that the current ipod touch and iphone use, and Apple has filed patents for gaming devices. If I read the news article correctly, it says that the Samsung chip uses less power and can record in various formats, which would imply dvr...

    Does anyone here use the ipod touch as an ebook reader?

    I'm currently thinking of getting an Ipod touch and one of the things I'd really like to do is use it as an ebook reader, since I like always having a book with me to read. I've researched it, but I haven't heard much. I do know that in order to get an ebook on it you have to open it from an...

    Lets figure out how Apple decides on shipments.

    I know there are other threads but they seem a bit disorganized and are missing variables which may be important. The most important that I can think of is location, Apple may be sending them in batches to certain cities to maybe strike a deal with their shipment carrier. Also, phone...
