How To Cope With Rude People

If you have dared to think that I’ve been rude to people in any capacity, might I give you a glimpse into the average minute of my average day? Yeah, how long could YOU cope with this before snapping? It’s not that I intend to be rude… it’s that I am tired of having to tolerate others who are acting rude.

When people call in, they tend to ask me the same things over and over. If you want to know something about me, why not check out the blog post created to help answer most of the things asked too often?

If you want to email or call to complain about the chat room, you might want to read through the rules. They are very basic, and ensure that our community runs as smoothly as possible. You may not agree with the rules, and that’s okay. Create your own channel and set up your own style of moderation. You have to remember that we have people of all ages in that channel, and we have sponsors who don’t like to see talk of illegal or disgusting things. I still haven’t figured out what the fascination is with talking about hacks and cracks, anyway.

I love what I do on a daily basis. I’m still passionate about technology and communities. However, I fully admit that there are days it’s difficult to keep cope when it seems as though no one wants to act with maturity and class. If you have a tech question, try to find the answer via a simple Google or Bing search. If the answer is too difficult to understand (or impossible to find), change up your search terms. If you still cannot figure it out, ask someone (like our community or myself).

For the love of god, don’t ask the same simple question that has been done to death and then get mad if I end up sounding rude when I answer you.

How to Add More Music to Your iPod or iPhone

If you’re a music fanatic, I bet you’ve griped many times about the lack of space for tunes on your Apple device. With the release of the new version of iTunes today, those rants will hopefully be relegated to the past. Apple has added a feature to reduce the size of the music files on your iPod or iPhone by converting the bit rate to 128 kbps. Most of you will never notice a difference in the quality of what you’re hearing when playing back your selections.

Install the update and begin your sync. Make sure to check “Convert higher bit rate songs to 128 kbps AAC” when you plug in your device. The sync will take longer than usual, because the application will need to convert all of the media to the new specification. You will be rewarded for the wait, though. Your iPhone or iPod will now be able to hold up to twice as many individual tracks as before.

This feature has been available on the iPod Shuffle for a while now, and many of us are happy to see that it has been extended to other popular Apple gadgets. Keep in mind that your original files in iTunes will not change. They will still have the same high quality as they had prior to the changes on the device.
