Using Ipod Shuffle with iTunes and Windows 7

Posted on 12 February 2016

Last week we showed you how to get Windows 7 running on your Mac, but iTunes won’t be able to sync your shuffle. This is a solution both for those with Windows 7 installed on Mac and PC. To fix the problem you will have to work through the following steps.

  1. If your Shuffle is connected to your Mac/PC then disconnect it, close iTunes.
  2. Close ”ITunesHelper.exe” in the windows task manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL).
  3. Download Sharepod
  4. Reconnect the iPod Shuffle and start Sharepod, you should now be able to see your iPod.
  5. With Sharepod still open start iTunes.
  6. Your iPod should be visible in iTunes, select options and uncheck iTunes autostart, check hard drive usage.
  7. Accept changes and close iTunes, do not eject your iPod using the iTunes interface.
  8. Close Sharepod and disconnect your Shuffle before you restart you Mac/PC.

Thats it your iTunes will now be able to place all your podcasts and music on your shuffle just like normal. You will no longer need Sharepod so feel free to uninstall it.

15-inch MacBook Pro, Mid 2009 Battery

Posted on 07 February 2016

Always a popular choice the next version of the MacBook Pro is ready to charge.

The battery follows suit from the 17inch MacBook Pro by including a non-removable battery. Not been able to swap out the battery will no doubt irk some road warriors but Apple is betting the saved space and the adaptive charging implemented will be enough to keep the peace. They are confident the battery will last 5 years before starting to lose capacity.

How long will it last you is the big question using the standard Nvidia 9400M you are looking at around 7 hours with about an hour less for the Nvidia 9600M GT.

To extend your short term battery life remember to dim your screen if possible and turn off Airport.

To extend the long term battery life make sure your battery is used regularly (having your MacBook always plugged in is not good for it’s battery).

Is the fact that you can’t swap out the battery going to sway anyone towards another model?

iPod Boy, kid gets a new nickname

Posted on 02 February 2016

A boy with an iPod surgically inserted into his arm has suffered terrible injuries when it overheated in the Humid Sydney Summer.

Just kidding the story is in fact a lot less about iPod’s and a lot more about a nine year old Sydney kid walking through a glass door.

The story doesn’t mention what model the iPod was if it had video that he was possibly watching. He is now thankfully in a stable condition :>.

Although we are still a bit puzzled what this has to do with a mutant iPod Boy maybe it’s a new ad campaign Can’t remember where your glass door is? there’s an app for that or maybe they meant Mutant drug dealing rapper?
