At least you're honest about your dishonesty... Have you ever considered a career in politics?
This is a window: The fact that MS used that term to refer to a rectangular box on a computer screen is a unique use of the word.
Thanks for the tips! Did all but the monitor check, since I didn't have a monitor or TV. No dice. Took a drive to the Apple store thinking it'd be a 'recovery' case, so I wanted to know how best to go about retrieving my files. Turns out they are replacing those graphics cards for free -- even though my MBP is 3-1/2 years old and I don't have Apple Care.

The global-warming movement needs this sort of whiz-bang graphics to make up for lack of evidence. EDIT: Come to think of it, Al Gore and Lady GaGa have a lot in common. Image over substance....
Poorly, which is why there is all the more reason to give it a second go, given that Apple's competition can see how popular the iPad is, and therefore how much of a market (and profit) is available. A monopoly can't last for long. Of course, I had really hoped the same thing would be true regarding Best Buy.....if you've noticed, ever since Circuit City went under, Best Buy has had less reason to provide discounts. Now that the economy is rebounding, I expect that there...
A few atlases and things are printed in landscape mode. But 99.9% of reading is done in the normal aspect ratio of a piece of paper. Someone mentioned 'non-issues' above.......the ability to read in landscape is a non-issue....
