All you do is complain about EVERYTHING Apple does! You are clueless as always. The battery can be replaced for $179. MacBook Air owners are happy with the non-removable battery. iPod and iPhone owners are happy. I have one battery for my PowerBook. I have replaced it once, but I have no need for a spare battery.
Did you count how many time you recharged your last battery before it was considered dead? I would gladly take an 8 hour battery, non-removable option, especially since it only costs $179 to replace it! I paid about $129 for my PowerBook G4 battery that barely lasts beyond 3 hours! Get over yourself.
I guess you guys didn't read the article about the rip off MacTablet by Axiotron? $2,799 is a great price for the top of the line MacBook Pro, especially one that is far more advanced than the previous model. Those dipshits at Axiotron are trying to sell their sad little tablet computer for $5,000!
Woz needs to get off his Segway and start WALKING! What a rip off for a laptop. Apple's top of the line is now only $2,799. No one will spend double for a tablet. They should clean off all the damn fingerprints too if they want it to look desirable.
For the morons that think they can sue Apple because of the battery in the MacBook Pro 17", read the fine print NOW: Testing conducted by Apple in December 2008 using preproduction 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo–based MacBook Pro (17-inch) units with a Better Battery Life setting. Battery life depends on configuration and use. See www.apple.com/batteries for more information. The wireless productivity test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing various websites and...
Just as expected: Before Macworld: "We can't wait, this will be cool! A new Mac Mini, blah blah blah." After Macworld: "This sucks, Macworld sucks, WAAAAAH. Where is my Mac Mini?" Your fault for believing the rumors! Fucking crybabies! A MacBook Pro 17" that is much more advanced and costs the SAME as the previous model. That is a great deal. But because of the recession you expect Apple to sell it for what, $1,000? Get a clue. It was pretty well known that...
After doing an "Upgrade My Library" make sure to have iTunes search for duplicates. After I did my upgrade, iTunes didn't quite delete all the duplicate items for the new ones downloaded. I had to manually delete a few of them.
So apparently, Toast 10 includes a feature for making Audiobooks. You don't need Toast 10 to do that. I converted Stephen King's The Green Mile from Audio Cassette (yes, long time recording all 10 tapes into the Mac!). Used Toast's CD Spin Doctor for the initial recordings to AIFF. Then used iTunes for the conversion to AAC. Then changed the file extension to .m4b. Then added the files back to iTunes again and now they appear as an Audiobook. They even appear as a...
Yes, Toast includes TivoToGo for Mac, the only way to get that feature for TiVo. I transfer TiVo content to either convert for my iPhone or archive on DVD. I also use Toast to burn backup copies of DVD's and self-created DVD's, and the occasional Audio CD.
Based on the system requirements, it sounds like the new iLife will run dog slow on single processor G5 and G4 Macs. iLife 08 is already slow on my iMac G5, and painfully slow on my older iMac G4 (especially iPhoto). Still love iMovie HD 6, and have no intention of using the replacement iMovie.
