HDMI, Oh my!

Please excuse me while I go into super geek mode.

The thing I heart the most this week are my new HDMI cables.

Say what?!

No worries. I didn’t know what these things were either until I started asking an important question: how I can view the contents of my laptop on my TV? And when I googled the simple solution, I ran to the nearest Apple store to scoop them up.  And I couldn’t have purchased them at a better time! Now that most of my shows are going on summer hiatus, this will be a perfect way to finally stream some new ones on Netflix without having to wait for the DVD’s in the mail. And since this weekend I learned how to use my Nikon D90 as a video camera and do some slight editing in iMovie, I can also record more home videos –  like this one of Isabella dancing – and watch them on the big screen :)

OK, if that isn’t the CUTEST video EVER! I can’t believe how long she kept it up for….that baby’s got some serious groove!

Looks like you’ll have to make a tech visit here to Casa Mia soon because you know I’m completely INEPT when it comes to my computer. I’m gonna run right out and get some of these cables and Ive got the AL file on deck just screaming your name!

So glad to be informed of what an HDMI cable actually does! I have a few of these around my house and of course my husband knows exactly what they do, but it took your post for me to actually be informed! I could scoop that Isabella up and just give her TONS of kisses! She is way, way too sweet for words!

The Reggaeton goes perfect with Isabella’s boogie! :) Adorable!

HDMI is a spruce gadget, a whole load better than those old scart cable’s we had to use back in the day.

So cute!!! We’ve been meaning to do the computer to tv thing as well. We’ve contemplated getting rid of our cable and simply downloading programs to watch. I think that is the way we are heading… pay per show. I’d love that.

a little bit of geekery never hurt anybody. :) wanted the macbook air but i’m starting to think it’s a glorified ipad (which i already have). so maybe the macbook pro is better for the long term. my power book is on it’s last leg. i think i’ll pick up an HDMI cord while I’m there.

Mindy May 9, 2011 at 7:50 pm

eh, I have no idea what this is, so I’m going to stick to commenting on your food posts, since I know a lot about food :)

great!! I love when things gets so easy to share. I´m working on putting a picture/video dvd together of Micah for my mother in law. I Love to watch home videos. It so much fun to have later in life when you “forget” about certain funny things! I Love that I can watch my dad on tape sometimes, now that he is gone! And with the technology nowadays, it would be a tiny stupid not to share more :)
