Mac Minute: Expose

Isn't "Mac Minute" used (and possibly trademarked) by somebody already?

http://www.macminute.com/

I recommend "Geekbert's Gems" instead.

I almost looked it up, but then I realized I didn't care if it was already in use. I guess I should think ahead. One day I might have hundreds of thousands of readers and find myself getting sued by some bottom feeder. :-)

I don't know if "Geekbert's Gems" is snappy enough. How about "Geeking Out" or something like that? I liked mac minute because it says, "This is going to be short and sweet." If I change it, I want it to be something like that.

Geekbert: "One day I might have hundreds of thousands of readers and find myself getting sued by some bottom feeder. :-)"

That's why I'm giving you this free legal advice.

You're right about the snappy-ness thing. I'm not sure I have a solution for you. Some suggestions: Geekbit, Geekbert Bits? Those suggest brevity, but not like "minute" does.

Doesn't blogger have a way for me to subscribe to comments or have them emailed to me?

Like say WordPress:

http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags/comments_rss_link

It's hard to keep a conversation going when you don't know if anyone has replied....

Brian, I like Geekbits. That's pretty good. I'm going to think about it.

I'll check into the comments subscription question and let you know.

I should check the apple tips site more often.

Some suggestions:

"Geek Minute"
"The Geekbert Minute"
"Geek Tips"
"Geekbert Tips & Tricks"
"Geek Knowledge"
"Quick Geek"
"Geek Moments"
"Geekbert Moment"
"A Moment w/Geekbert"
"Geekbert 101"
"Geek Tutor"

I like "Geektips" too... by the way, when I get my Podcast up and running I was thinking about having a Geekbert segment each week... we can talk about that more soon.

Keep up the good work!
