360 for Android phones: the “Instagram for Panoramas”

When thinking of social photo apps, iOS comes to mind with strong offerings like Instagram. But it doesn’t do panoramic images like 360 for Android does: the beta app doesn’t require a ton of processing power to produce a seamless 360-degree image that can be shared.

Using an Xbox or PS3 With a Cinema Display

XBox 360 on an Apple Cinema DisplayAs an avid Apple fan, I use a MacBook as my primary machine along with a Cinema Display to provide some extra screen estate. When choosing to buy the display, I never really considered the possibility that I would need to plug any device into it other than my laptop so didn’t opt for one with different ports and connections. This came back to bite me recently when I purchased an Xbox 360 and discovered that, even with an appropriate HDMI to DVI adaptor, it isn’t possible to connect a games console directly to an Apple display.

It is, however, possible to connect a gaming console by way of an EyeTV Hybrid, which has the necessary S-Video or Composite inputs. HD gameplay isn’t possible at this time, but there could well be products in the future which accept HDMI or Component inputs. This guide gives you an overview of this process and should get you up and running with your Xbox (or any other recent games console).
