picks of the Week

After playing with Mountain Tanks from Battery Acid Games John is recording his podcasts with Boom Recorder which records up to ten tracks at time.

After moving to San Francisco, Scott armed himself with a bean bag called OmniPod. Which is a questionable weapon. But because of its built-in camera tripod mount it's useful for protection against hand noise and the SF tripod police. Supports cameras, recorders and anything else with that 1/4 screw. Not available at Jeffrey's Toys.

Merlin's Airport Extreme isn't fast. But the configuration software is really cool. And has one less port then he first thought. It look promising! KMA!

Alex is making logs with Movie Logger.
