Mac Related Solutions

At lunch today, I had a chance to sit and chat with someone who has been visiting Honduras for humanitarian work--essentially, digging trenches, running hoses from water sources to faucets near the homes of villagers. He wanted my opinion on a video he had made, essentially a photo slideshow with copyrighted music on it.

Part of our conversation hinged around a variety of Mac related questions and audio recording issues, including the following:

  1. Digital Audio Recorder Recommendation
  2. External USB Microphone
  3. Speck See Through Cover for Macbook
  4. Marware Wrist and keyboard protection
  5. Podcast Safe Music Sources
