As promised. Here are the images of myself and Jeff Gamet before and after shaving for Movember. In case you missed it, during the month of November (aka. Movember) I grew a mustache to help in an international effort to raise money and awareness for the fight against prostate cancer. This year globally the effort raise more than 30 million dollars. In the US we raised almost 3 million and the US money will be split between The Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Lance Armstrong LIVESTRONG foundation.

For our part, the Maccast community raised almost $600 ($589.97). And Jeff really helped push things forward by agreeing, on this episode of the iPhone Alley Podcast, to shave off his signature mustache and goatee if we raised at least $250.00. As you can see from the above images, we obliterated that goal. So thank you Jeff and thank you Mac Geeks.

    Hi Adam,

    Great podcast I have been following you for the last 6 months and learn a lot. Please keep up with the good work.

    I got a question and something to share with the rest of the listeners:

    I got a Iphone 3G 8Gb version. The only app that is larger than 50 Mb is my GPS Nav (550 Mb) I my Itune it stated I got 2.9Gb of app. Is this normal?

    Share / Question
    I have a number of video I need to convert from RMVB to Mp4 for my Iphone. I had a real hard time finding the correct software. A number of software websites seems to offer the same software repackage with different name and selling about $30 USD on the internet. But looks very dodgy. I have heard some bad feedback from some too.

    Here is a very link I found works out well:

    It involved FFMPEGx and some Realplayer code hack but it works. But it is not a perfect solution. It can convert most of the RMVB to AVI but not directly to MP4.

    Adam, if you know any software that can do that please let me know happy to pay just need to know for certain. I know there are tons of windows base apps will do just that but not in the Mac world and running VM is very inefficient.

    Best regards
