comment Alternatives to, or benefits of, AppleCare for a MacBook Pro?
Not really an answer, but anecdotal evidence in support of AppleCare. I had a MacBook Pro 15" and used AppleCare many times over 3 years: 2 new batteries, a new logic board, a new hard drive, a new super drive, and 2 new fans... Basically, stuff happened and they were always willing to take it in a fix it for free. They hardly every argued (I had to visit twice prove the super drive issue since it would play DVDs but wouldn't read the Snow Leopard installation disc) and it was just nice to know they weren't just trying to rip me off with a warranty I'd never use or be able to use.

I would suggest doing it in your hosts file, but I don't have my mac with me right now, so I can't confirm that works...

comment Using Hauppauge HD PVR and Mac Mini to Stream Game Video
CamTwist also supports playing movies via a playlist. Maybe you can finagle it to play a movie while it is still recording? Sounds hokey, but another thought is that if you can somehow play a movie that is being recorded, then you could have camtwist output the desktop with that video playing and publish that as a video source??? I dunno.

Just some clarification, what app do you use when using your iPhone as a GPS only?
