Didn't Apple do something like this to some third-party apps that had implementations of Cut & Paste before announcing the new features? The evasiveness of the reasons makes me think that Apple has a similar function in the pipe. Many people have asked for a more informative lock screen. Such a feature would not need to be in the beta builds that are released to developers - presuming there are no changes to the notification system. If there are changes to...
I'll be trying it out when I get home! Hopefully my Mini/9400M can handle HL2. Leaving that unfinished was among my very few regrets when I unplugged my PC.
For real??? How many terabytes?
Considering that these would be a *second* backup, not my working files or secondary backup, this would make exactly zero difference. In such a scenario one would still have the working drive or Time capsule to duplicate.1) You haven't made any solid arguments to the extent it's "not secure", especially in comparison with other approaches suitable for home use. 2) The speed should actually be adequate, if less than desired. Again, I'm not looking for a working-copy...
This is a fair point, it looks like the initial backup will take a very long time. As I'm getting into more home video, some new files are also quite large...Everything of concern to me is already out there (and more readily so) via other third parties - banks, retailers, government, etc. Both Mozy and Carbonite seem to take good security steps, probably better than my own home network. (A subpeona is a non-issue; if one were directed to me, I'd have to give my data up...
Currently, we have a MacBook and a Mini, and both are backup up to a Time Capsule. I am pretty comfortable with this for coverage of the typical crashed hard drive, or stupid mistakes. However, it won't really help if something worse happens such as a fire or theft. Loss of all our family photos and home videos would be devastating! I am considering using an offsite backup service, and wondering what experiences other people have had, and the best way to use...
I agree. I like the general shape (and features), but the obvious seams and screws seem out of place to me, and the round buttons seem out of place on an iPhone. I'm sure Apple has built several prototypes to evaluate different aspects of the design, including features as well as aesthetics. While is very well could be a 4G prototype, it may not match the final product. I posted the other day saying that I thought the 4G would be a mild update. I hope I am wrong! This...
Apple has already done the tech preview for iPhone OS 4, and the SDK is in the hands of developers now. This covers the vast majority of what would be needed for updated apps. My own guess on the hardware is a mild update from a user perspective. Same or similar shell, revised internals using a custom Apple CPU slotted below the A4 but above the current 3GS CPU. Selling points: More storage per $, longer battery life, ships with OS 4.
I, too am an SACD fan. If I could get SACD quality from iTunes, I would be buying a LOT of music... Like SACD, the ideal downloadable format would have lossless compressed DSD-like multi-channel and stereo versions, plus a smaller compressed version for use on an iPod.
My thoughts, too. Last week I finally replaced my old PC with a Mac Mini and went Windows-free at home. As I was going through the hard drive for important files, my only small regret was that I had a few unfinished Steam games. I have no intention of using the Mini for heavy gaming; that's what the Xbox is for. But it will be nice if I can just re-download my purchased games for OSX!
