If you want the mouse to move fast across the screen just move the mouse fast! I like the way I can have the mouse move across the screen by just moving it a few cms on the table. And still have the minute control by moving it slow. Personally I like the Mac mousedrivers way better than Windows'. It's all about Fitt's law. The Mac takes it into account, Windows doesn't.I don't think I have ever seen software that changes the Mac mouse to a linear behaviour.Sorry that I...
Well - I ordered my 17" PB on Feb. 6th. I prepaid with a personal cheque. They still quote a delivery date of May 15th.So if there is a new 970-based 17" PB coming out in June, I will have had my PB 3-4 weeks. Apple will have had my money for about 3 months.Yes - I thought it was worth the money at the time (Feb. 6th).I wouldn't mind if I got my machine in February and a new, 970-based PB was released in June. I wouldn't even mind if I get my machine before easter and a...
We are getting local here, sorry about that Yes - Apple Norway has a demo unit, and a large shipment should arrive before easter.AppleStore still says May 15th though
You guys don't know how lucky you are. I ordered mine (ADC through the Apple Store) on February 6th. It was prepaid with a personal cheque - Apple has had my money for more than 6 weeks and I still don't have an OoB date! I called them last Friday and the closest they can say is "around May 15th". I work at the computer science dept. in the largest university in my country and have been an ADC member since 1987!
The same happened to me for a while. I tracked it down to a faulty FireWire cable. OS X crashed almost daily. After I replaced the FireWire cable with a new one I have had no more crashes.MacOS X is sensitive to problems with external units and with drivers. Buggy drivers and faulty hardware can give Kernel Panics.So no more Kernel Panics here for the last half year.

They talk about February-March time frame (I think) for the 970 arrival. "I følge IBM vil PPC 970 "være tilgjengelig i andre halvdel av 2002". Følger vi IBMs nyeste produkt syklus, vil det si at prosessoren kan...
[quote]Originally posted by ast3r3x: why o why would you want AM/FM?! The reason for the iPod is so you don't have to listen to comercialism at its best. XM is different but I imagine that would cost alot. AM/FM please apple no!
Some of us live i countries where non-comercial radio is available. Where I live we have 3 public radiostations without comercials. All geared towards different audiences - 1 for general public, 1 for culture...

It's not even a rumor. Didn't anybody see the link on the April 1. availability? Terje
If this is all true, what can Apple do to keep its existing line attractive? For consumers their existing computers are good enough, but they are a bit pricey. I don't belong to the group that thinks that Macs are slow. I have a 17" iMac and a 667 TiBook and they are both more than fast enough for my uses (which is more or less typical consumer uses). I don't play a lot of games, but for the ones I play these machines are fast enough (not for hard-core gamers though). So...
AMD rumors are afoot again (MacBidouille). Now I don't for a second think that Apple will abandon PPC and go x86 (neither 32 nor 64 bit version). There are too many mines in the water that way. On top of that Jobs has said that they are not abandoning PPC and that PPC has a great future. As a CEO of a large company ha cannot say this and then change just a couple of months later. But: There were rumors of G5 (64 bit) processors from Motorola last spring and rumors said...
