Nike+ iPod Sport Kit - Your Exercise Life? ;-)

If you listened to Wednesday's show you heard Shawn and Lesa talk about their experiences with their new Nike+ runners; a YEL (Your Exercise Life) group has been created - I believe - and if you wanna get in on the fun (or torture, depending on how you look at it) you don't have to spend the big bucks on Nike+ runners, if you don't want to.

Runaway is an on top of your shoe "adapter" that can accommodate your Nike+ iPod Sport Kit receiver, giving you a broader range of footwear to choose from, including the ones currently collecting dust in your closet. As long as you have runners, hikers or walking shoes with laces, you can use the Runaway, in conjunction with the iPod Sport Kit of course.

Thanks to Greg Naciuk (HikerCA in our IRC chat room) who provided the link.

Couple of Pics of the Vancouver Apple Store

I hadn't planned to go down to the new Apple Store in Vancouver this weekend, and certainly not for the "opening MacMac bell" at 10:00am or the 9:00am media preview since I had stayed up into the wee hours of the morning setting up my new Tivo unit (how did I live without this thing!?!).

But when I found myself downtown around lunchtime, I figured what the heck, I'd at least go check it out and hoped that the throngs were gone by then. I've read other accounts that there were between 2,500 and 3,000 people in the lineup, and if true, I'm glad that Vancouver's usual "laissez faire" attitude didn't extend to this grand opening. I arrived around 12:15pm and the store was buzzing, full of Mac enthusiasts and the curious. MacBook Pro's and iPods were many of the purchases I saw being made during my few minutes in the store. The staff, with the usual Apple Store enthusiasm, seemed to be keeping up with the crowd, checking with each customer to see if they were finding everything alright.

Shawn & Lesa in San Antonio!

Shawn and Lesa have been exploring San Antonio this past week - on *Segways*!

Well, not exactly but, thanks to Alamo Segway Tours, they got to "see San Antonio at 6 miles per hour!"

There has been much tequila drunk, much Mexican food had and much shopping done. Check out the Flickr Feed for more pics!

Without Lesa, it's not that good anyways...

Nurse Sly seems to think it might be Strep Throat. Nurse Lesa thinks it might be a cold. Patient Shawn doesn't care - all he knows is he can't talk. :(

As Shawn Twittered this afternoon, "Does swelling/pain under jaw and *serious* difficulty swallowing actually mean anything...or can I just ignore it?"

Apparently, it means *something* but no one knows just what yet. What it means for the YML audience is, with an inability of the host to talk, tonight's show would be *very* uninteresting. Therefore, we've had to cancel it. :(

REVIEW: Bon Jovi in KC - Even Better the Second Time Around – April 22, 2008

I thought I was fortunate enough to be able to see Bon Jovi in concert back in my hometown of Vancouver, BC in December ‘07 (for the very first time I might add). Since having been a fan it seems like forever, I had always wanted to see them perform live but for whatever reason I never had the opportunity. Their genuine love for Vancouver, having recorded three of their most successful albums there, was apparent in both their performance and in the memories they shared of an obviously important time in their lives. I even declared that this concert was probably as much fun as my all time favourite concert - Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA tour, which stopped in Vancouver in October 1984.

Click here to read the full review, see a page full of pictures and my own and other videos from that night

Hope you enjoy!

Washington Apple Pi Welcomes Lesa Snider King on April 26!

Graphics wizard Lesa Snider King returns to the Pi to give us her take on the newest version of Adobe’s Photoshop Elements. Lesa is a world-class graphic artist, but with a difference: she is also very good at teaching. Photoshop Elements 6 is much less expensive than the full Photoshop, but under Lesa’s tutelage you may find it much more approachable and useful. Lesa’s visit is sponsored by iStockphoto.com.

Our meeting will open with a Question & Answer session, and at some point we will have a break for refreshments. We will also meet the candidates for this year’s Board of Director’s election. This promises to be a great meeting. You don’t want to miss it!

Casting Call!

From Smile On My Mac:

We are (finally) putting together a SmileOnMyMac audio spot for YML. We are using people's responses to the "What Makes You Smile On Your Mac?" contest. I am getting some of the original contestants to record their answers, but I will still need other voices to record.

It will only take a minute and should be fun. If you are interested, send me an email off list, and I'll send you the details.

Today's Photoshop World Photos!

Wednesday was the first day the Tech Expo Show Floor was open. Then in the evening, we went to Taverna Opa with the folks from Peachpit.com and then to B.B. King's Blues Club to hear Scott Kelby's band, fronted by the lovely and talented Kalebra Kelby!

This week on Your Mac Life, sponsored by RadTech, SmileOnMyMac and Circus Ponies - "YML @ Photoshop World in Orlando!"

Unfortunately, there won't be a live version of tonight's show. It was taped early Wednesday and Tuesday.

This week's Your Mac Life is all about Photoshop and the people who use it!

YML is down in Orlando, FL, site of this week's Photoshop World, the bi-annual gathering of thousands of creative professionals, digital artists, academics, and more all getting their brains crammed full of Photoshop-py goodness!

How much fun is Photoshop World?

Well, Lesa seems to have found a way to not only learn about Top Secret Stuff from various companies (as evidenced by her teasing us on Twitter) but to also appear in a "Star Trek - The Photoshop Generation"!

Actually, Lesa attended at "Train the Trainers" seminar on Monday and part of it was learning some really cool techniques and effects using various next gen applications.

Still not sure how the Star Trek theme came about...I'm sure she'll explain it to me at some point...

Photoshop World has started off just Ducky!

Shawn and Lesa are in Orlando, FL all this week for Photoshop World - Lesa is teaching classes and Shawn is just a hang-on this week.

We are staying at the Peabody Orlando and got a chance this morning to watch the world famous "Duck March". We even got a chance to interview the Duck Master and we'll have that interview on Wednesday evening's show.

Click here to see more pics of "Photoshop World has started off just Ducky!"

After the Move, No Your Mac Life Tonight! :(

Moving is one of the top five most stressful things we do and, even when it's a "simple" move things go wrong.

While unlike the last move where things were outright stolen, this time, we've just lost some gear crucial to the broadcasting of the show. We know it's here, we just don't know what box it's in. :(

So we've had to cancel tonight's show while we put the studio back together and find all the missing bits. Next week, we'll be in Orlando for PhotoshopWorld and we'll have all the best news an interviews from there!
