Any sense of what Apple might use as the cut off point for the next OS X release? Is it reasonable to assume that they will stop supporting MacBooks with OS X 10.10?
That might be a possibility.Although, when I was playing around with one at the store it did seem like there was some content that was not accessible. On one the the major news sites none of the video content appeared at all. I would hate to have her miss out on random stuff...
Yeah, I finally found the 'sign in' link at the top of the page.
Wow. Does the Pismo handle Flash video sites? Can you watch anything at Hulu? I had assumed that the poor performance at Youtube was due to Flash.

I was offered this on 10.6.8
Actually, I have looked at SlpashID and I definitely don't like it. It doesn't use the standard MacOS document paradigm. Instead it implements its own multi-user/multi-database system which is not consistent with the Mac OS document model.
Funny that you mentioned 1Password. One of the reasons that I won't use it is because its file format does NOT encrypt everything. It leaves the title of each entry in plaintext. But, even if I had the source code for an app, I don't have the programming knowledge to understand it...
I'm considering the Mac password vault called Data Guardian. How can I be assured that the encryption is implemented properly?
