2008 Cleveland Auto Show

I went to check out the auto show at the IX Center here in Cleveland yesterday. There are some pretty cool designs for prototypes and new sports cars/ muscle cars for 2008. I love to look at these cars and dream of cruising on Route 66 in one, but when it comes down to it there is not much practicality in a car with a huge gas guzzling engine and almost no back seat. You can check out some of the photos I took here

The biggest let down is that none of the auto makers seem to be making any strides to get America off of the gasoline. If fact I saw less ideas there than I have in previous years. What happened to the hydrogen car that GM used to show off? Now they have a prototype crossover that charges over night and will give you only 40 miles of full electric run till you have to charge it again. Doesn't seem to viable to me. I thought there might be some expansion of hybrids in some of the lines. Toyota redesigned the Matrix, they should have made a hybrid version. So, I see that purchasing a new car this year is not going to be an easy thing. With my restrictions of needing a vehicle that I can haul my photo equipment and wanting something that is kinder to the environment. My only hybrid options are the Ford Escape or it's sister the Mercury Mairiner. I'm not a Ford fan. Out of the 5 cars I've owned in my life 2 were Fix Or Repair Daily (FORD). It's looking like I should keep my Matrix and start praying for more options next year. Thanks for reading my rant.

Cover Art for Itunes

I've become so tired of looking at all those empty cover art squares in itunes. So I sat down today and figured out how to add my own art work. The steps are as follows:
  1. Open itunes
  2. Open the new cover image in Preview (Mac) or windows picture program (I need someone to verify this works for windows)
  3. In top menu bar Edit>Copy
  4. Activate the itunes window
  5. Select the songs you want to add the art to
  6. In the top menu bar File>Get Info
  7. It will ask if you want to edit multiple songs say yes
  8. Check the artwork radio button so it's checked
  9. Click on the art work box so it's highlighted
  10. Paste the image in the box
  11. Enjoy!
This the first cover I created check back here often for new ones.
To download just right click on the image as save as...
