I like it.... I really like it.
I've used the original iRig to play my guitars through my iDevices with IK Multimedia's AmpliTube and Apple's GarageBand (free) apps for years. It was a workhorse and a bargain at $39.99, but my one complaint was that it lacked an input gain control, so I had to record some of my guitars at lower-than-I'd-have-liked recording levels. iRig 2,the successor to my venerable iRig shipped last week, fixing my only complaint and adding new features like...

Episode 3: The Essence of Apple's Spring Forward Event. Allow me to introduce my latest invention: The Event Essence Extractor. Marvel as it extracts the essence of Apple's 95-minute Event and squeezes it down to less than 10 minutes.

It's my best episode yet (if I do say so myself).

Don't miss it!

Now that Apple is offering iOS 8 as a public beta, you might want to read (or reread) my "Before You Install the Yosemite Beta" column at The MacObserver: http://evpo.st/1BCgIZV

I'm just sayin'...

Dragon Dictate for $99 instead of $199 is a bargain... but only for the next 6 hours!

The latest installment of Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves (R&R # 114 for those of you keeping track at home...) brings you a delightful pair of useful-but-semi-hidden OS X Yosemite features. You'll find it at The MacObserver for your enjoyment and edification: http://evpo.st/1C10jym

And, yes, it's about 2 of the 4 ½ features I showed in Episode 2 of The BobLeVitus.TV Show, (cleverly titled: 4½ AWESOME SEMI-HIDDEN MAC OS X YOSEMITE FEATURES EVERY MAC USER OUGHT TO KNOW.)

Wait. You saw Episode 2, didn't you? If you didn't, you really should, you know. You'll find it here --> http://evpo.st/1H48nOA

I love writing the Dr. Mac's Rants & Raves column. This one's definitely a rant. <grin>

Episode 2 of The BobLeVitus.TV Show is now available for your InfoTainment™ pleasure. This time I've got a delightful little episode I like to call, "4½ awesome semi-hidden Mac OS X Yosemite features every Mac user ought to know." If you're a Mac user and you don't know these 4 ½ things, you should.

And how will you know if you know these 4 ½ things? ? You'll have to watch the episode, of course:
