comment Use Goal0 Nomad 7m Solar Panel to charge MacBook Air?
Basically, inductor based DC-DC converters (everything > ~3W) have efficiency of ~75-90%, so 2 DC-DC converters is 81-56%. Basically, you want to minimize the number of conversions.

comment Use Goal0 Nomad 7m Solar Panel to charge MacBook Air?
Probably your best bet is to buy another power adapter, cut the cable, and connect directly to the MBA's power connections. Using the airline adapter means you're going: PV Panel -> DC-DC converter to 12v -> DC-DC Converter to 14.5v MBA PS Voltage -> DC-DC converter in MBA to charge batteries. You want to go PV Panel -> DC-DC Converter to 14.5v MBA PS Voltage -> MBA.

There is no way in hell that solar panel is good for 150 watts. If you look at the specs, it's rated as 7 watts. Where are you getting the "~7 amps @ <22V DC on a regular day."

comment Which Mac to develop iPhone apps?
Go with 8 GB, particularly if you are doing Dev Work. The additional headroom comes in handy when you have lots of stuff open.

I do #1 (though not on a mac pro), and I'm a (power) home user.

It's worth noting that it's still alpha, though it seems stable enough to me.

comment How do I record a screen cap video of the iPad?
It may be possible to do something in the iPad emulator which comes as part of the iPad SDK. It will likely require some significant hacking, though (and you need a mac).

@Nathan G. - WTF? I really don't get why dropbox is anything worthy of comment. It's a web-file-sharing site. Big Whoop. My SVN server will kick it's ass.

The real question is why aren't you using opera on the mac. Opera is way more powerful than safari.

Furthermore, this actually was possible, until apple broke it, intentionally or not, in OS X 10.6. See returnopen.com
