New iMac RAM upgrades
In brief: We have a review of PowerPhones Pro headphones, RAM upgrades for the new iMacs are available, a guide to FileMaker-driven Web sits debuts, and an iPod cord wrap for tangle-less headphones has been released... We have posted a review of the PowerPhones Pro headphones, which ship in a simple easily recyclable cardboard box, but inside the earphones are tucked in a stylish silver case. A velvet storage bag and an extra set of flanged silicone ear buds for smaller ears are carefully packed under foam in the case. For the price, I expected a second set of each size in a zip-lock bag, as are found in many other comparably priced earphones. The unique PowerPhones Pro design makes them easier to use when moving. An around-the-neck lanyard doubles as a headphone wire and the weight of the headphone wires reduced the possibility of the ear buds accidentally popping out of the ears.

Guide to FileMaker-driven Web sits debuts
FMWebschool has released a new guide to creating FileMaker driven websites with FMStudio. This new 300 page book guides you step-by-step through the process of creating websites powered by FileMaker Pro - without writing code. "Most FileMaker developers when asked have no idea how to create a FileMaker website. They would like to, but they fear the complexities and the time investments. The thought of learning another programming language is about as appealing as having a root canal. We have created another path that doesn't involve a trip to the dentist."

Comprised of light-weight plastic and measuring just one inch in diameter, this system keeps headphone cords at a manageable length while in use.
