Toy update: iSight [20050415|16:28]

Marco had to get an iSight for work in order to conference with people on the west coast in the US. Since I am the Mac owner in the household, this meant I get to test it. Behind the cut is the story of my love affair with the iSight.

0.2 seconds: Ooh!

The image quality!

0.7 seconds: Ahh!

So lightweight!

1.5 seconds: Hmm.

Ngk.


Total time elapsed: 1.5 seconds.
That's how long it took me to figure out I'm going to have to upgrade the OS on my desktop solely because the iSight requires iChat AV for video conferencing, which is why we got the thing in the first place. Audio conferencing only works if both users are running iChat AV. Oh, Apple. In the three years we've been living in this household of many operating systems, how I have learned to loathe your inflexibility. To the Linux developers at Sourceforge: Hurry up, y'all.

I make so many faces, I have no idea, but according to Marco, I make the first face more often.

Three of my long-term friends recently made cuts to their f-lists within 24 hours of one another. I think it's a weird LJ synchronicity thing. Like the way women who work together in an office will start having their periods at the same time.

Ooh, icon-size! I will adopt the first one for regular LJ use, thank you. I like the third one, too, because at first I my brain didn't process it as my face. I saw it as a dancer against an abstract background with her arms raised over her head, standing on one leg. Weird, eh?

The kayoot won't attack unless provoked. Please do not tap on the glass.

Yo dread, whassup? (name that movie)

I've been toying with getting a camera for the new laptop I ordered, since it has a DVD burner on it, and I could now do excellent things with making home movies.

But I was thinking more of a full-blown video camera rather than a web cam.

iSight, iChat, iTunes...if they came out with iCoffee and iLife, I think most of their customers would be iSet.

If they do, I will have to fly there and iStab them.

Ehh, eheheh …

No word on the iCoffee, but as a matter of fact Apple does publish iLife … and iWork, too.

Let the iStabbing begin, I guess.

Marco is right! I myself have been witness to the Leah "ooohh!" face many a time. Usually over a toy or new music!
