Hopefully this does signal that Apple will be an MVNO... Then they'll have three major platforms that they'll control from top to bottom:
1. Mac/Mac OS X
3. iPhone/Mac Mobile
All of which will interoperate, of course, and suck dry the bank accounts of everyone on this forum.
Everyone's experience is different, so unfortunately you'll just have to choose one and see if it works for you. Personally, I've had no trouble with LaCie drives, but I keep backups around just in case!
Volumes belongs at the root of your file structure, so click "Macintosh HD" (or whatever you've named your internal boot drive) and you should see other folders such as/Applications/Library/System/UsersDrag the Volumes folder there.
I like a lot of the UI changes in iTunes 7, but the buttons at the bottom are really awful and the iPod manager -- while cool -- does not fit with anything else Apple has done in OS X. It looks like a frakking webpage!
Clark Johnson is also a director; mainly TV shows like The Shield, but he did make The Sentinel with Michael Douglas recently. And if you like Andre Brougher, I suggest you download the first season of Thief if you haven't seen it already. Very intense show, and not all flashy like that Heist show on NBC.
