|Toy update: iSight
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
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!
1.5 seconds: Hmm.
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.
Ooooooooo. I like that first one.
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?
I like the last one lots. Mmmm, colors.
Fearing the kayoot. Very much so. See me cringe and whimper.
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.
Which camera models were you considering?
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.
You need to iStab them in the iEye.
I crack myself up.
*badumcrash* Aaand, she'll be here all week, folks!
No word on the iCoffee, but as a matter of fact Apple does publish iLife
and iWork, too.
Let the iStabbing begin, I guess.
I was wondering where the new icon came from. Excellent shots... personality! :)
Marco is right! I myself have been witness to the Leah "ooohh!" face many a time. Usually over a toy or new music!
Or a technicolor dream penis!
