Review: Accessory Ave. on Yahoo Stores
Accessory Ave. sold me two devices, a Cannon DV Cam and an Olympus DSC. Both were over-sold (as they told us a week late), so they offered higher end models of both with no discount. We accepted, that was two weeks ago and the package is still not in our city. They also had no 1-800 no. and operated for very few hours and days. You may have better luck, but I was in no way satisfied with their service.

Apple is definately spilling some beans this month. See this banner from Apple's site.
Tutorial: Writing Japanese with Mac OS X.

Very basic knowledge of Japanese required.

-Go into System Prefs:International:Keyboard Menu tab.

-Check the red disc with an apple on it near the bottom of the window.

-An american flag will appear in the menu bar.

-Open any non-classic word processor such as Text Edit.

-Select the red disc icon from the flag (AKA keyboard) menu.

-To select an alphabet, pick one from the bottom set of four menu items. The first is Hiragana, followed by Katakana than kana width Romanji than normal monospaced Romanji .

-Type words (typing k and a make ka etc.).

-To create kanji, type the word in kana and than press the down arrow until the appropriate character appears.

Note: The modified "." and long dash are in the normal . and - spaces on the KB.
Tutorial: Getting Mp3s with:
MacSatellite, OpenAG or Sputnix.

-Pick and download a client. As of the current versions I recomend Satellite for Classic and Sputnix for X, however if Sputnix is not connecting, OpenAG is fine.

-Go to AudioGalaxy Registration and register an account.

-Use the search function of the AudioGalaxy site to pick songs (click the satelite icon).

-Install your client and enter your name and password.

-Hit connect and watch the files roll in, even if your browser is closed!

-Repeat as nececary until your HD is full, then buy annother one and continue to repeat.
