iPad mini = lousy mic/preamp

The iPad mini seems to have taken a big step back to the iPad 1 type of mic/preamp system. It distorts very easily and is not at all good like the iPhone 4,4S,5, or iPad 2,3,4 mic/preamp system. No go for recording a band!!!! Why Apple?

SSH key for OS X

When generating the SSH key, you really do want to hit enter for the default file (id_rsa). The passphrase, though is a different story. Enter a passphrase for that one that is secure.
