Re: putting mp3 on the apple devices

Walter Ramage
 

There are two ways to put mp3s on an iPhone that I know of without using iTunes.  1 is with an iStick but they are expensive but easy to use and second is by using apandora.  Walter.

Hello, I remember there used to be away to put mp3 files on an apple devices by creating your own playlist threw itunes! Now i find the new itunes to be more trouble than it's worth. So has anyone found a way to put media on the i-devices besides itunes? I thought there was an app that one could use but, not sure! Thanks, Heather

The service is called ShareByLink. Once you install the client, you can
upload a file by highlighting it in Explorer and selecting the item labeled
"Share file(s) online with IQ ShareByLink"
from the context menu. The ShareByLink client interface will open, the file
will immediately start uploading, and the download link will be placed on
the clipboard. The client interface is not accessible, but if you download
the beta version posted here by the developer,
https://www.sharebylink.com/blog/accessibility-feature-upload-progress-in-title-bar-when-you-share-links
the upload progress will be displayed in the title bar. Files can be up to
two GB in size and will be available on their servers for 30 days.

Hi all,

I need a simple ripper to rip a couple of audio disks to mp3 tracks,

Re: webvisum extinton

Webvisum 0.9.5 for Firefox is now available through the Mozilla Add-ons
site:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/webvisum/
The developer has marked it as experimental, which may be why it's not
listed on the Webvisum site itself, but it does work well with the latest
Firefox versions. I've been using it for a few weeks now. The James Scholes
version works well too, so there are two options now. It just depends on
whether you want an officially signed build, or one from a fellow user,
though it is a user I do trust.

Have you ever been to a website where you wanted to register as a
member, then filled out the application only to find out the last form
field says something like "type the letters seen in the picture
below", and your not provided an option to have the letters spoken
out loud? Well that's a captcha, which stands for completely automated
public turing test to tell computers and humans apart, a security
feature to prevent automated programs to fill out forms and create
accounts, which is a big problem for website owners and web masters.

Some how or another Webvisum, Rumola, Captcha be gone, ect.. are
automated programs that can be invoked to analyze and solve a captcha
image and provide you with the answer in seconds. It's not 100%
perfect, but it's really close to it.

food for thought

Terrilynne Pomeroy <tl1@...>
 

I feel pretty sure that this isn’t going to happen as quickly as the message implies. It would be interesting to have a more, in my opinion, time realistic version.

 

One thing I can think of is a discussion I saw a few years ago on loving land lines, and if/when the phone companies would stop providing them. Well, for the lovers of land lines, so far, so good.

 

I do think that the article is something to think about, though, just not with the speed indicated.

Speed Of Change

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper,
worldwide.
Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went
bankrupt.
What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10
year - and most people don't see it coming.
Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on
paper film again?Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975.
The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore's law. So as with
all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time,
before it became way superior and got mainstream in only a few short years.
It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and
electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.
Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution - Welcome to the Exponential Age.
Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.
Uber is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, and are now the
biggest taxi company in the world.
Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't
own any properties.
Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in
understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go player in
the world, 10 years earlier than expected.
Lawyers: In the US, young lawyers already don't get jobs.
Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less
basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy
when done by humans.
So if you study law, recognize that there will be 90% less lawyers in the
future, with only specialists remaining.
IBM Watson already helps nurses diagnose cancer, 4 times more accurately
than human nurses.
Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces
better than humans.
In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.
Autonomous Cars: In 2018 the first self-driving cars will appear publicly.
Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted.
You don't want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it
will show up at your location and drive you to your destination.
You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can
be productive while driving.
Our kids will never get a driver's license and will never own a car.
It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that.
We can transform former parking space into parks.
1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide.
We now have one accident every 100,000 km, with autonomous driving that will
drop to one accident in 10 million km.
We will save a million lives each year.
Most car companies might become bankrupt.
Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a
better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple,
Google) will do the
revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.
I spoke to a lot of engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; they are terrified
of Tesla.
Insurance Companies: will have massive trouble because without accidents,
insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will
disappear.
Real Estate: will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people
will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.
Electric Cars: will become mainstream by 2020.
Cities will be less noisy
because all cars will be electric.
Electricity: will become incredibly cheap and clean:
Solar production has
been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can only now see the
impact.
Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil fuels.
The price for solar will drop so much that all coal companies will be out of
business by 2025.
With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water.
Desalination now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter.
We don't have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking
water.
Imagine what will be possible if we can have as much clean water as we want,
at almost no cost.
Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year.
There will be companies who will build a medical device (called the
"Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your phone. It scans your
retina, your blood sample and you breathe into it.
It then analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease.
It will be so cheap, that in a few years everyone on this planet will have
access to world class medicine, almost free.
3D Printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to
$400 within 10 years.
At the same time, it became 100 times faster.
All major shoe companies have started 3D printing of shoes.
Spare airplane parts are already 3D printed at remote airports.
The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large
amount of spare parts they used in the past.
At the end of this year, new smartphones will have 3D scanning
possibilities.
You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home.
In China, they have already 3D printed a complete 6-storey office building.
By 2027, 10% of everything that's being produced will be 3D printed.
Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want, ask yourself: "in
the future, do you think we will have that?"
If the answer is yes, say to yourself, "How can I make this happen sooner?"
If it doesn't work with your phone, forget the idea.
And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure
in the 21st Century.
Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years.
There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough
new jobs in such a short time.
Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future.Farmers
in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their fields instead of
working all day on their fields.
Hydroponics will need much less water.
The first petri dish produced Veal is now available and will be cheaper than
cow produced Veal in 2018.
Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces are used for cows.
Imagine if we don't need that space anymore.
There are several startups which will bring insect protein to the market
shortly.
They contain more protein than meat.
It will be labeled as an "alternative protein source"
because most people still reject the idea of eating insects.
Truth or Lies: There is an app called "moodies"
which can already tell us
the mood we are in.
By 2020 there will be apps that can tell by our facial expressions if we are
lying.
Imagine a political debate where it's being displayed, if they are telling
the truth or not.
Longevity: Right now, the average life span increases by 3 months per year.
Four years ago, the life span used to be 79 years, now it's
80 years.
The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be more than a
year in longevity increase per year.
So we all might live for a long, long time, probably over a
100 years.
Education: The cheapest smartphones are already costing $10 in Africa and
Asia.
By 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smartphone.
This means, everyone has the same access to world class education.
The shame is, nothing here replaces the government.

Electric Cars: will become mainstream by 2020.
Cities will be less noisy
because all cars will be electric.
Electricity: will become incredibly cheap and clean:
Solar production has
been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can only
now see the impact.
Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than
fossil fuels.
The price for solar will drop so much that all coal
companies will be out of business by 2025.
With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water.
Desalination now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter.
We don't have scarce water in most places, we only have
scarce drinking water.
Imagine what will be possible if we can have as much clean
water as we want, at almost no cost.
Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year.
There will be companies who will build a medical device
(called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your
phone. It scans your retina, your blood sample and you
breathe into it.
It then analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any
disease.
It will be so cheap, that in a few years everyone on this
planet will have access to world class medicine, almost
free.
3D Printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down
from $18,000 to
$400 within 10 years.
At the same time, it became 100 times faster.
All major shoe companies have started 3D printing of shoes.
Spare airplane parts are already 3D printed at remote
airports.
The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need
for the large amount of spare parts they used in the past.
At the end of this year, new smartphones will have 3D
scanning possibilities.
You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe
at home.
In China, they have already 3D printed a complete 6-storey
office building.
By 2027, 10% of everything that's being produced will be 3D
printed.
Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want,
ask yourself: "in the future, do you think we will have
that?"
If the answer is yes, say to yourself, "How can I make this
happen sooner?"
If it doesn't work with your phone, forget the idea.
And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is
doomed to failure in the 21st Century.
Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years.
There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if
there will be enough new jobs in such a short time.
Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the
future.Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become
managers of their fields instead of working all day on their
fields.
Hydroponics will need much less water.
The first petri dish produced Veal is now available and will
be cheaper than cow produced Veal in 2018.
Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces are used for
cows.
Imagine if we don't need that space anymore.
There are several startups which will bring insect protein
to the market shortly.
They contain more protein than meat.
It will be labeled as an "alternative protein source"
because most people still reject the idea of eating insects.
Truth or Lies: There is an app called "moodies"
which can already tell us
the mood we are in.
By 2020 there will be apps that can tell by our facial
expressions if we are lying.
Imagine a political debate where it's being displayed, if
they are telling the truth or not.
Longevity: Right now, the average life span increases by 3
months per year.
Four years ago, the life span used to be 79 years, now it's
80 years.
The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be
more than a year in longevity increase per year.
So we all might live for a long, long time, probably over a
100 years.
Education: The cheapest smartphones are already costing $10
in Africa and Asia.
By 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smartphone.
This means, everyone has the same access to world class
education.
The shame is, nothing here replaces the government.

Speed Of Change

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of
all photo paper,
worldwide.
Within just a few years, their business model
disappeared and they went
bankrupt.
What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of
industries in the next 10
year - and most people don't see it coming.
Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would
never take pictures on
paper film again?Yet digital cameras were invented
in 1975.
The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed
Moore's law. So as with
all exponential technologies, it was a
disappointment for a long time,
before it became way superior and got mainstream in
only a few short years.
It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence,
health, autonomous and
electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture
and jobs.
Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution -
Welcome to the Exponential Age.
Software will disrupt most traditional industries in
the next 5-10 years.
Uber is just a software tool, they don't own any
cars, and are now the
biggest taxi company in the world.
Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the
world, although they don't
own any properties.
Artificial Intelligence: Computers become
exponentially better in
understanding the world. This year, a computer beat
the best Go player in
the world, 10 years earlier than expected.
Lawyers: In the US, young lawyers already don't get
jobs.
Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so
far for more or less
basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy
compared with 70% accuracy
when done by humans.
So if you study law, recognize that there will be
90% less lawyers in the
future, with only specialists remaining.
IBM Watson already helps nurses diagnose cancer, 4
times more accurately
than human nurses.
Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that
can recognize faces
better than humans.
In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than
humans.
Autonomous Cars: In 2018 the first self-driving cars
will appear publicly.
Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be
disrupted.
You don't want to own a car anymore. You will call a
car with your phone, it
will show up at your location and drive you to your
destination.
You will not need to park it, you only pay for the
driven distance and can
be productive while driving.
Our kids will never get a driver's license and will
never own a car.
It will change the cities, because we will need
90-95% less cars for that.
We can transform former parking space into parks.
1.2 million people die each year in car accidents
worldwide.
We now have one accident every 100,000 km, with
autonomous driving that will
drop to one accident in 10 million km.
We will save a million lives each year.
Most car companies might become bankrupt.
Traditional car companies try the evolutionary
approach and just build a
better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple,
Google) will do the
revolutionary approach and build a computer on
wheels.
I spoke to a lot of engineers from Volkswagen and
Audi; they are terrified
of Tesla.
Insurance Companies: will have massive trouble
because without accidents,
insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car
insurance business model will
disappear.
Real Estate: will change. Because if you can work
while you commute, people
will move further away to live in a more beautiful
neighborhood.
Electric Cars: will become mainstream by 2020.
Cities will be less noisy
because all cars will be electric.
Electricity: will become incredibly cheap and clean:
Solar production has

We don't have scarce water in most places, we only
have scarce drinking
water.

clean water as we want,
at almost no cost.
