Here it comes, My guess is that Apple is going to sever all ties with Samsung as a supplier and chip fab contractor ASAP. I don't know how long it'll take, 9 months or 3 years or what, but Samsung is 2nd to only Google at this point in terms of being Apple's least favorite business partner. Unless something drastic changes in the next year or so, I don't see it going any other way than complete splitsville.
I think I'll first test out the new version of itunes on my non-music computer to see if it's workable for my main computer that has my itunes library. My itunes library has a little under 25000 tracks, around 1500 artists, and about 2800 albums, so some giant grid view with album artwork is not going to be workable for me at all. As boring as it is, a giant library needs text lists in some form or another to remain usable. If the source list on the left is somewhat...
Once this is released, if the general public consensus is that it's resolved the battery issues people have been having in 10.8 and 10.8.1, then I'll finally go ahead and upgrade from 10.7.4.
iTunes 10.7 is released today to support the new iOS hardware (new iPhone 5, new nano, new touch) announced today. The newer iTunes with interface changes is due later in late October, and a version # wasn't mentioned for that. I would assume it'll either be iTunes 10.7.1 or iTunes 10.8.
I still haven't moved my June 2012 15" MBP (non-retina) to ML 10.8 yet from 10.7.4, but if 10.8.2 gets released and the general public consensus is that it solves the battery issues, I'll probably go ahead and update.
Why does everyone keep saying that Apple's new maps app is inferior to Google's when 99% of you haven't had an opportunity to try the new Apple maps yet?
  It's about the possibility of attack from 2 sides, the 1st being if your icloud account is hacked or somehow compromised, and the 2nd being if your mac is stolen. If my laptop is stolen, I'd like to be able to use find my mac to possibly locate it on a map, maybe increasing the possibility that it could be recovered. At the same time, if my icloud were hacked, then someone could wipe my Mac, and I wouldn't know it until it happened, and I don't want that either. I do...
Here's a possibly dumb question:   Is there any way to remove the ability for your Mac to be remotely wiped aside from simply turning off "Find My Mac" from the iCloud prefpane? I'd like to be able to turn off the ability to wipe my Mac without turning off my ability to FIND the Mac, but I suspect this isn't possible.
I haven't been having any problems with USB devices including an audio interface and USB HDs on my new mid-2012 15" MBP (non-retina), but I haven't been using anything USB 3.0, only USB 2.0 stuff.
My understanding is that so few 17" MBPs were being sold relative to the other models, that it should be no big surprise that they dropped the 17" form factor. I would be buying a 17" right now to replace my old 2007 15" MBP if they had come out with some, but instead I'll be getting the new 15".
