Mix: Pixar, NPR podcasts, SplittingImage, iPod finger

Steve Jobs, CEO of both Apple and Pixar, said yesterday that 125,000 copies of Pixar short films were sold on the iTunes Music Store in under a month.

National Public Radio has announced three new podcasts that will be distributed under an “alt.NPR” label. They will feature “news and interviews about gambling, classic rock music, and creative work from young radio producers.”

“iPod finger” and “Blackberry thumb” have apparently joined the list of repetitive strain injuries.

SplittingImage is a small Applescript application for Mac users that lets you “zoom” into pictures on a color screen iPod by splitting the high resolution image into several smaller tiles.

SplittingImage looks cool . . . I have been trying to do this manually for some maps I have before I travel.  Can someone split some images for me on a mac?

Funny, I don’t use my fingers to operate the iPod. They’re all round the back holding it - I use my thumb on the clickwheel. Then again, perhaps I’m just different and strange? :)
