First, I installed Front Row in Lindsay yesterday. With a certain patch called Front Row Enabler, Front Row can be installed in virtually any Mac, even those without Apple remotes. Got it from PhilMUG’s thread here. Lindsay is taking it pretty well but it’s not perfectly seamless. The performance drop is noticeable but not significant.
Let me also tell you that of course, I still have a life. Woke up at around 4:00 a.m. so I can leave home at around 5:30 a.m. for a hearing in Antipolo City. The hearing went well, albeit ended at around 11:00 a.m. I have to leave that early for Antipolo hearings because anything later would subject me to huge traffic stress. Also, having the iPod in the car (I used the tape thingy to play it in the car stereo) made the trip more pleasant.
Then, off to my aunt’s house for lunch. Her cook was so good, she can even make Tokwa (fried tofu) extra special. I was specifically asked to drop by so I can fix her newly-purchased 29″ Wega which she bought after my mom talked her into buying one. She could not buy the same TV my mother bought because her place gets flooded during the rainy season. A big-screen TV was simply too heavy to carry safety during floods.
Oh yes, back to the joys of Apple.
I tried my friend’s suggestion for a cheap iPod video cable. It was simply a matter of purchasing a videocam cable and just switching the plugs, as stated in this site. That saved me a ton.
So it is possible to live the Apple lifestyle without the Apple cost of living.
Have to go. Still have some paperwork to do.
