I grant your point that NeoOffice can be a pain. But its Excel is largely a clone of the real Excel... menu item for menu item. As for being dog-slow, it is... if your computer is old. For me it's not a problem.As for "sharing Office documents...'Come on...joking right? Office documents can't travel 50 feet inside the same company without the formatting going to sh**. Plus the viruses issue. You can't even mail .doc files through Google; ring a bell? My email...
I just got an Office 2008 license as a student. Basically it is inferior to NeoOffice, and also iWork 08 (which I have). Word is OK, and thank goodness the Equation Editor is included (which I use constanty). EXCEPT WHEN WORD SAYS MY DISK IS FULL. THis is a very frequent error. During which I CAN'T SAVE MY EQUATIONS. SO MY WORK GETS LOST. Like 1988 all over again. Moving on, Excel 2008 is a complete joke. No Equation Solver. No VBR. NO MACROS!!!!!!! NO MACROS,...
Well first of all my cicle count is at 174, battery health "good." 4213 ah full charge capacity. I find that running Safari, Parallels, Windows XP, SAS, Adium, Transmission, etc requires the machine to use roughly 50% CPU power, with hard drive spinning and Wifi working (what good is a MBP without wifi anyway LOL) Using the machine at around 50% power, it will drain in about 90 minutes. It just did so again. It's simple physics. These machines use 4,200 mah in under 2...
5 hours. LOL. My 2.33 ghz MBP has NEVER gotten 3 hours. Not once. The typical operating time is 2 hours. 1.5, if things are heavy. That's on a new (<1 year old) machine in typical "power user" tasks... such as web browsing, iTunes, and obviously using some backlight as well, in order to see properly. 5 hours is a complete load of crap. Nowhere near reality.
Is there something wrong with the iMac for enterprise? Most enterprise workstations (>99%) are stock machines with simple video, modest ram, word processing/email/Excel and that's it. 99%. iMac can handle that. The iMac is no server but as a node, it is one of the best. About this event.... I really think Apple should focus on the TV appliance market. Go deep.
Heh... Time Machine is just so complicated it was bound to have a thousand bugs. It is so revolutionary and advanced a concept. It can't be battle hardened for at least a year, I say. It will be a neat curiosity after 10.5.2 though. So far, I did not turn it on.
Cycle: 1) No known issues 2) Users report new problems 3) Apple fixes new problems 4) No known issues 5) Release new build and repeat This is how it's done. Quibble with the masters if you have to. Makes you look dumb.
In the USA, we have 7.5 million millionaires in 2004 (says CNN / money study). The stock market has done well since that year. Other estimates top 9 million. It really varies how you decide to simulate things. Any which way, China is not similar to the developed world in terms of net worth, yet. Frankfurt alone will have more millionaires than all of China. That is my extrapolated guess at this time.
Huh??? China has NO Where near as many millionaires as the US does. Not even in 5th place would be my guess. Japan would be second, far behind the USA. Then probably Germany. Somewhere below that, China. Of course, that will change in years to come. Beijing for example has many millionaires -- many of them, foreigners who live and work in China. Will they want iPhones, YES of course they will. Shanghai will have a major store too before 18 months are up. ...
Some people said OS 10.5.1 was already just perfect. Really, I got flamed here for saying OS 10.5 has been buggy. Especially 10.5.0. Hopefully THIS will be the prime-time hardened release. That is clearly what AAPL has in mind.
