TeenCast !

May 30, 2006

EDIT: The new episode is finally up!

Yes, Jill and I finally made another episode. We made it this morning, and its still in the editing process, but we also made a site for it with Podomatic. Now it has an accessible RSS feed and a place to upload the files. Now you can listen to it either by download or by a flash player on the site. I really hope some of you listen to it, and don't judge it on the first episode, because it was basically just testing out the microphone. The newest episode, #2, will be up in the next 24 hours. Hope you guys listen and enjoy!

Podcast…?

May 29, 2006

Jill and I were bored yesterday and decided to test out some of the technology my computer had.

So…

Henceforth a podcast was born. We had no idea what to call it, so we gave up and decided since we were both teenagers, TeenCast was a good name. It was nine o'clock in the morning, give us a break…

So its a 4 1/2 minute "pilot" episode. Its just over 2mb and it is not good quality… it was basically putting the microphone up to the phone, not the best!

But if you want to hear it, please let me know and I'd be happy to email it to you. Its really small and is in the mp3 format, so if you have 4:32 minutes to spare, leave me a comment….

Mac or PC?

May 3, 2006

I saw some commercials today for a Mac and I got to thinking: when I get my next computer, am I going to want a Mac?

On one hand, I know PCs, I've lived with them, I'm used to them. And a Mac's completely different…

But then again, a Mac is more useful for Music and Videos and stuff like that, which I am more into and more used to doing. PCs have calculators…

So, I'm stuck. I want your opinions on what you think I should get my next laptop as. Leave comments / email / whatever to contact me.

iPod Ranting…

April 13, 2006

Hello again everyone.

Today I feel like talking about iPods. You know why? I don't. But it sounded interesting enough to do.

Went to the school library, and I went to return books when I decided I wanted to keep one out — iPods and iTunes for Dummies.

We had what we call "silent reading time" where I read some of it — and I realllllly want an iPod now. Play movies, songs, and podcasts; have a virtual calendar; play games; its amazing what you can do with it! And now I'm really psyched about it… anyone else have one?

I thought it was interesting enough to blog about, and hey, my blog is kind of designed around the whole iPod/Apple idea. I just really really want one now. I want to know about you guys, what you think about them. I think extra money I get that doesn't go the site will go to getting myself an iPod. That'll be cool to have I think. Email / chatter your iPod reviews and thoughts. I'll update later with more, I'm on a time cruch at the moment.

And do remember, there is an RSS feed you can add to your RSS reader. That will always be available and will be updated at the same time as the post.

Good night, everybody…
