You can crop off the extra recording. Just move the playhead to the end of what you want to keep, then select Crop Recording From Here from the Edit menu.

New Apple Ads: Real, Fake, and Funny

Send Article to a Friend

Apologies if I'm behind the times on this, now that we watch TV only via a Netflix subscription, but Apple has posted a new set of Get a Mac TV ads that poke fun at Windows Vista. Sure, for most TidBITS readers, the ads are preaching to the converted, but I admit that I still enjoy seeing Apple point out the Mac's advantages like this.

An unexpected bonus to Apple's minimalist style has been the ease with which it can be parodied, as in this hilarious Saturday Night Live version of an iPhone commercial, linked to by Gizmodo. The sketch reportedly never aired, having been cut when another sketch ran long. (Check Apple's site for the original iPhone ads that are being parodied.)
