Connect Your Mac To Your TV

Consider this something every man should know how to do. There’s a lot of conflicting information out there about how to connect your Mac to your tv, but if you get the right instruction, it’s actually pretty easy. The above video is the best we’ve found. The products you need are all available on Amazon for under $30; mini-VGA to VGA display adapter, VGA monitor cable and stereo cable.

UPDATE: Actually if you’ve got an Intel Mac and a TV with an HDMI connection (you probably do), then Mini-DVI to DVI and DVI to HDMI offer a better picture. You’ll still need the same sound adapter and the downside here is that you’ve probably already got your cable or satellite hooked up to your TV’s one HDMI input.

To Jailbreak Or Not To Jailbreak

I’ve been a pretty happy iPhone user for the past year or so. I’ve often considered jailbreaking, but have never done it. I had tethering for a while via a hack that AT&T took away. It was great and it gave me just a little taste of what jailbreaking can do for me. The insanely frustrating inability to send/ receive MMS might just push me over the edge. Above is video from vandam500 showing off his 10 favorite Cydia apps. I could see some use for 3G Unrestrictor, but Backgrounder would finally let me listen to music while playing Scrabble. Who needs a warranty anyway?

iPhone: Now Replacing Fishing

If you’re anything like us, and you probably are, your iPhone has replaced your phone, your iPod (or Walkman or even Zune if you made a really poor decision), your BlackBerry and your digital point-and-shoot. Thanks to Flick Fishing, you can now officially throw out your fishing pole as well. We’ve never been that into iPhone games, but this one is somehow different. Really all you’re doing is casting and reeling, but somehow we can’t put this game down. And judging by the number of networked games we’ve played with friends, we’re not alone. Despite our best efforts, we haven’t been able to find many hints online so if you’ve got any do us all a huge favor and leave ’em in the comments.
