Who, Me?

Hello to everyone in blog town. I will take a moment to introduce myself. I’m Paul. I’m a straight up metal head, and perform in a popular underground death metal band, as the vocalist. In my spare time, I fancy myself a graphic designer, and work freelance for mostly music related customers. CD covers, layouts, ads… All that fun stuff.

I’m a Apple enthusiast. I owned my first Apple way back in the early 80’s with an Apple II+. I eventually upgraded to a Macintosh in the mid 80’s and have been a proud owner of more Apple products then I can remember, and currently, typing on my MacBook Pro.

I buy so much Apple and Apple related products, and I post my little “reviews” of these things on other Mac related sites, I have decided to start a blog, and post my reviews here, compiling them all in one place.

I’m not a seller, dealer, or have contact with any of these companies or products I review. I’m just an average Joe, who loves his gadgets, and will bring you my honest opinion of these products.

Take it all with a grain of salt… I am a long haired metal head, after all.

    How did you open up Blue Mikey. I have iPOD Touch and I cannot hook up the headphones —- so since you mentioned you opened up Mikey — how to do this and is it possible to shave /grind / the end near the headphone jack to be able to have both plugged in at the same time — that is Mikey and a headphone jack.
    Thanks Rick

      I used a very small flat head screwdriver to slowly pry the side of the silver “U” ring around the sides and top of the Mikey. It clips into place and hold it all together, so just go slow and be careful not to break the clips. It comes off fairly easy.

      Once connected, the Mikey is the entire width of the iPhone, and since the iPod Touch has the Headphone port on the bottom with the dock, I don’t think there’s any way you can use both. The Mikey does have an external speaker built on to it, so you can play back and hear what your recording.

    Hi. Fellow metal head artist here. I am wondering (since I use a pc) if your photoshop and illustrator run pretty fast on mac and if you have ram issues? I was schooled on a mac but have been working on a pc for 10+years. I am constantly having possessing issues. I’m a print designer so my files are big ( like up to 500 MB) and I am considering a mac if it will run better. What do you think?
    Thanks for your time … Turia

      I used to be the Pre-Press manager at a high end commercial printer, and have been in graphics all of my adult life, I can honestly say that for the graphic industry, Mac is the way to go. The processor power has come a long way in the recent years, and I still do high end pieces on a Macbook Pro with 4GB’s of ram. When you purchase, make sure you get the higher end options. You want that power for graphics. I don’t think you would be disappointed in any way.
