What SD CARD should I buy?

If you want an SD Card for your camera - this is the one I use and recommend. It comes with a full-size adaptor, so you can use it in any of your devices. SanDisk UHS-1 is the same speed as Class 10.

I'd strongly recommend not to buy any SD cards off ebay - I've heard about and experienced too many issues with counterfeit cards - often sold on by unwitting resellers. 

NOTE - Some cameras work more reliably with Class 6 Cards as a Maximum (The Mini 0801 is an example).

The Dockintosh

I've occupied my spare time over the last few weeks putting this thing together.



It's an old Macintosh repurposed as an iPad dock.

I'm pretty happy with the finished article, and my rotary tool skills are significantly more advanced now, than when I started. I'm by no means a hobbyist, so this is the most complicated thing I've constructed. If I was a better craftsman, it would no doubt have looked a lot neater. One thing I might change If I were to do it all over again, would be to simplify it by using a sync cable rather than a dock.

I made the first 'advertisement' section of the video in a tongue-in-cheek manner (I don't really suggest keeping it in the kitchen or by the bed), its just a bit of fun.
Enjoy.

I have seen your video on YouTube and am so impressed. I have a 27"aluminium iMac and an iPod touch 4g. I have grew up using window xp basically all my Pc life and have been interested in macintosh since about spring 2009 and have been waiting till I could afford one myself.

I have always been comfortable using windows xp for as long as I can remember, then I had a laptop with vista which I hated. This laptop was in replacement of my Pc that my father never fixed. I then had got an xp netbook which i then released could not cope with xp. Then I got windows seven to take over annoying vista but I did not like that either, especially because it decided to delete itself and restore to vista. Lucky we were able to get an exchange from Pc world for a ds i xl. I then thought about Linux and I loved it but my laptop was overheating all the time. Then I install ubuntu on my netbook in replacement of xp and it loved ubuntu. After a few months my mum asked me if I am ever going go use my laptop so my friend put xp pro on it which was a dream come true as my laptop works just like a Pc so games worked on it well.

But I now have an iMac with xp inside parallels desktop vm, so I have the best of both worlds.
I am waiting for someone who is interested in my old laptop and now, I use my iPod most of the time.

Every evening me, my mum and sister come in my room and watch a DVD which is nicer on my iMac than the tv because all of the colours are correct. When the iPad 3 comes out, we will be likely to get that as our first iPad and I would love it if that was my dockintosh as I would love an old macintosh too.


GOOD JOB

No problem. If I was doing it again I'd forget the dock because the iPad can now sync wirelessly. You could put a Bluetooth speaker in there instead if you need amplified sound and just make a hole in the side of the case to feed a 30 pin USB lead through to charge it up.

Just one idea, what about enlarge the floppy drive slot and then create a holder to let users insert the remote into the floppy drive slot

January 26, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJoseph Chong

One of the best things ever made, genius idea! It if was mine I would put better speakers inside it though.
