So, I purchased iLife 06 and was going to do my token Podcast from the new Garage Band Podcast Creator to PodcastTools.com recorded from our family Mac Mini. I can see it now – the $499 all-in-one Podcasting hardware machine.
Guess what, no microphone jack on the Mac Mini. I'm very curious as to why on that one? You'd think with a focus on the home like they have, they'd include something like that.
I guess the eMacs have them.
Yes, I have some USB soundcards I can use with it, and will soon, but so much for the “so easy anyone can use it” motif.
BTW, it's also a lot more complicated than it looks. Every other all-in-one I've played with at this point has been easier to use.
I'm heading on the road tomorrow so the recording will have to wait a week or so.
