1  Mac Hardware / iPods & iPhones / Pre paid sim card in USA on: July 02, 2009, 10:19:42 AM
I am from Canada, & am heading to Vegas next month - I have an unlocked iPhone 3G, and was wondering about pre paid sim cards? & how I'll be able to use one?
Where can I get one? How much?
Will I be able to use my phone for data? GPS? Location aware apps?
Any ideas/info would be great.

I live in Canada as well I forgot to mention, and Fido (my carrier) doesn't offer an international data plan thing.

Does anyone have a good way for me to utilize my iPhone when I travel to Italy next month without incurring lots of charges?
I will turn Data roaming off, but does that mean I can't use the GPS?  or location awarness apps like urbanspoon and the likes?
I don't plan on making many calls, & I will keep an eye out for wifi.

Aside from Toast Titanium 9 (which always quits unexpectedly), which is the best way to put AVI files onto a DVD to watch on my DVD player?

Is there any software that converts AVI to MPEG2 with high quality?

Thanks, Dan

I dragged the english files into iCals contents (right click iCal ->show contents), & dropped it into the Resources file.  Viola!

Hello, I have a mid 2008 intel iMac 2.4 GHz 20", and I just put in 4G of 800 MHz RAM into it.  Is there a website or program that I can run my mac through to see what kind of performance I'm getting??  I ask, because it seems a wee slow as of late.
I have macaroni installed as well, which I've been told takes care of some "house cleaning".

10  General Category / General Mac Discussion / Airport Express - Unable to find device on: June 11, 2008, 11:06:37 PM
I just bought (today) the brand new iMac 2.4GHz (frickin' sweet) along with the AirPort Express, and trying to get it hooked up...I get it all configured, then I get an error message saying: AirPort Utility was unable to find your Apple wireless device after restarting.
The amber light is flashing, and it seems the AirportExpress never even restarts.
I've tried factory reset and the likes, even exchanged for a new one, but still have the problem.
Any idears?
Thanks, Dan.

I've never done this, and no little to nothing about it.  BUT... this applications 'sounds to me' like it will do what you're wanting to do.  Research it well before making the move, however... and like I said... I'M NOT SAYING IT WILL WORK. - JamesJM

will this work with leopard?

Any idears?
