I just noticed that Flickr has launched their printing service. You (or whoever you authorise) may now order print of your photos on Flickr. That is, if you (or those you authorise) are located in the U.S.
One would think that Flickr would be more international than many other Internet content providers. I don’t know if their customer base in mainly U.s based, but I know that once again the extra services they now provide is U.S. only.
From their blog:
For now it is U.S. only (we know! we’re working hard on rolling it out everywhere!).
I seriously doubt that they will roll out anything here in Luxembourg as it is the case as well with the iPhoto photo printing service
As you may notice I am not as ecstatic as many of the others on Flickr (the U.S. inhabitants) – and I suppose they are Windows or Linux users, because the iPhoto service is largely sufficient for your printing needs.
The QOOP service looks interesting though. They ship worldwide, but will the shipping to Luxembourg not be e x o r b i t a n t?
My dear Powermate is now completely dead. Plugging out and in doesn’t help It is strange that Griffin Technology hasn’t be able to fix the problem. They are aware of it, but no solution has been found as of yet. Obviously, there is no mention of the fact on their web site that it doesn’t work properly in 10.4. Maybe 10.4.3. will revive my Powermate.
My PowerMate has remained unused since I upgraded to Tiger, mostly because I don’t use it a lot on a daily basis. However, when I wanted to use it in particular with FC Express, I discovered that I had to unplug and reconnect in order for it to work. And that only latest until the next time the Mac is idle…
I proceeded to download the latest software for the PowerMate (currently 1.6.0), but to no avail.
An e-mail to Griffin Techonology support produced this response:
Tiger is currently giving us headaches here at Griffin. We’re currently
looking into possible issues between Mac OS 10.4 and the PowerMate software.
Right now, though, we recommend that you try completely removing and
reinstalling the PowerMate software following these directions.
1. Move these files to the trash:
2. Run the PowerMate Remover program located on the PowerMate installer disk
3. Restart the computer.
4. Reinstall the latest PowerMate software from our web site. http://www.griffintechnology.com/software/software_powermate.html”
Doing this didn’t help either unfortunately, so I hope Griffin and Apple come up with a solution anytime soon.
Anyone else have this problem? And a solution perhaps?
Yesterday I managed to win a golf tournament where the first prize was an iPod nano. It is truly an amazing piece of hardware. I find it almost too small
So what should I get as accessories? Apart from a new screen in the near future… Do they make socks that small? I would say a Firewire cable isn’t necessary as it only take 2 GB.
