Mac: PodWorks 1.2.1 Released

“PodWorks is the latest entry in the crowded field of iPod song copying utilities, but it has several important differences that I feel distinguish it immediately from the competition.”

    What’s new in v1.2:
  • Fixed bug that caused hidden files to be created on songs with titles, artists, or albums beginning with a period (”.”). Now periods at the beginning of all path components will be replaced with underscores (“_”).
  • Tweaked throttling algorithm in ongoing efforts to conquer freezing problems on earlier G3s

“Connected clothing for the networked world”

Walter S. Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal reviews several wearables that enable you to store and connect your portable gadgets. Included is a review of the Burton Amp Jacket, recently introduced at Macworld SF by Apple Computer’s CEO, Steve Jobs.

“The iPod fits snugly into a stiff, custom-shaped outer compartment near where the left breast pocket normally would be located, and connects to a tiny black box that zips into its own pouch. This interface module, which Burton calls the “brains” of the jacket, essentially is a reconfigured iPod remote control. A white cloth data cable—a ribbon with conductive fibers in it—is sewn down the inside of the sleeve of the jacket to the forearm area, where the five raised circular buttons appear on the outside material of the coat.”
