iTunes U, fonts and gadgets

There is some chitter chatter on gadget sites that Apple may be announcing a red iPod in the near future. Some profits from the red iPods may go towards finding a cure for HIV. Wait and see but the Apple rumors often come true.

Some college and university faculty are now using iTunes U to post podcasts of lectures and lessons. iTunes U is iTunes for higher education. For example,
the University of Michigan School of Dentistry posts faculty podcasts on their own iTunes U website. When a school creates their iTunes U they may add school colors, logos, etc., to personalize the site.

If, unlike me, you have nice handwriting you may want to pay $9.00 to get your very own personalized computer font. Fontifier lets you do just that. You create your own font in your own handwriting. I haven’t tried it because, again, my handwriting is not pretty but this idea is intriguing. Check out the Fontifier website to see some examples.

I saw this item on the web and thought that its simplicity and usefulness both required high marks: the Yodobashi bottle cap tripod! You can make a bottle (check the size – it probably won’t work on all bottles) into a digital camera tripod. The price may be a bit steep but it may be worth it to you if you do not wish to lug around a regular tripod.
