    My notes from the show:

    My “review of the week” is ChronoSync v3.3.4. ( http://www.surfbits.com/?p=983). “It is an easy to use data management tool that allows you to efficiently synchronize files and folders from one disk location to another. Using the document-based interface, you can easily identify a group of files, specify a destination, then schedule the action to occur as often as necessary”

    In terms of my own blog, in addition to the reviews I have a couple of “issues” that I am trying to resolve. I am getting a very frustrating 1417 error when I try and upgrade our 1G iPod Shuffles ( http://myapplestuff.com/problem-updating-1g-shuffle/) and I am trying to work out the best way of using my Apple remote from another room as well as when I am at my desk ( http://myapplestuff.com/extend-the-range-of-the-apple-remote/)

    As far as my current dual screen project goes Lindy (http://www.lindy.com) have again impressed in that they got the stuff to me within a couple of days of it coming into stock. Unfortunately it looks like there may be an issue getting power to the VGA Converter, and as they are closed until January 2nd I am not going to be looking at that until the New Year. I can view my Mac on the TV so am happy enough for now ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/ourcoolmacpics/330100560/)

    I am sure that I am not alone in wondering exactly what is going on with the Apple iPhone. I am 50/50 on whether I would get one ( http://myapplestuff.com/apple-2007-wish-list/) but if it looks like the one in the latest rumor then I think I would be tempted ( http://myapplestuff.com/another-apple-phone-rumor-now-slightly-more-plausible-but-not-really/)

    Finally, whilst not a “royalist” at all I was amused to see the that the Queen of England will be the latest to join the ‘casting world ( http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,70131-13558599,00.html?f=rss ). I wonder if she is phoning around for advertisers?!
