MacBook Pro Speaker Freakout…

January 25, 2008

I’ve had this happen twice now and couldn’t find anything about it. While happily working away on my laptop, the speakers made a loud, sudden pop. After that no sound would come out of them – no iTunes, no notifications, nothing. I turn the volume up and down several times with no effect. Mute caused the popping noise though so I knew the speakers weren’t dead just freaked out. On a whim, I plugged in my headphones and mashed the mute button again. Viola! Sound worked fine in the headphones. Upon unplugging them, I now have sound again. Uh…ok.
Not sure if it warrants a trip to the Apple Store (when am I NOT looking for a reason to go there) but since I can’t exactly reproduce the issue I’m guessing I’ll have to wait for a reoccurrence.

It’s a Mouseboard, a Keyous, a Combimouse…

Although I'm pretty certain that I'd never use one, I thought that the idea was at least an interesting one. Check out the details at the Combimouse site.


Zen Case Mod…

I'm not really big into case mods but this Sangaku Case Mod has got to be one of the coolest I think I've ever seen.
