Hubba whoba? You mean you can get it cheaper at Apple's web-site or own store? I think not. You can save a few dollars at MacMall and such, but a true Mac 'sale' on a new product only comes once a year to the Apple store... web or retail.
All what other services? I am logged in to me .Mac right now (.Me... whatever) and it has Mail, Address Book, Calendar, Gallery, iDisk and Settings. They used to have a small web-site tool, but they took that away. But, you can still host 1 site on your .Me account (but they won't host the domain).You don't need .Mac for screen sharing. I did that with Remote Desktop years ago on a PC, and use Screen Sharing on the Mac now... no MobileMe required. Syncing all my...
All right, let me go through the rest of it then... since you are too lazy to do your own research... Yes, Live has iDisk - it's called SkyDrive. 25GB free. MobileMe gives you 20GB to split between Mail and iDisk. To double the storage to 40GB is $50 a year (cdn). It is $129 a year for MobileMe in Canada. I don't have an iPhone, and don't actually live where there is cell-phone service. It is a neat feature that you can locate your phone, and wipe it. I imagine this...
Windows Live doesn't offer email? (Hotmail) Doesn't host photos? (Live Photos - 25GB free storage) What else doesn't it do? I am a MobileMe subscriber, but really, other than the convenience, you can get pretty much everything free from another service. It's people making these hardline 'Microsoft Sucks' types of rants that turn people away. The computer - Mac or PC - is quickly becoming just a window into a digital snapshot of a person - stored on the 'net. We're...
I don't understand the 4 page rant about this... some of the points are valid - some aren't... None of them are untrue. It reminds me of car-sales lectures... you don't point out the strengths of your competitor, you point out their weaknesses. I switched from PC about 2 years ago now... and looking back, yes, it was a bit of a change to get used to. It wasn't hard or anything, but it is a change. And I still miss some of my old PC apps, and have invested in Fusion...
My wife's Macbook popped up with a Malware warning yesterday, and it only has Leopard. Are you sure this is a Snow Leopard feature, and not a Safari update? Anyway, the malware warning she got was a pop artist web-site where she wanted to download some desktop wallpaper... odd... that's all the Mac needs is false warnings of doom...
Of all the useless articles on AI... this one tops (bottoms?) them all... Would anyone expect 'new' iMacs to have less features than the last? Of course there is going to be new stuff... My predictions... 16GB of built-in SSD that will serve as the OS drive. A separate HD/SSD will sit along side it for apps/data. It will boot into an optional Internet mode, where Safari will load from a cold start in about 3 seconds. Blu-ray. Not because it is 'needed', but...
I've been running the beta for the last... well must be 9 months already... and QFL is a horrible start with no progress made over the year in fixing anything... You can replicate the functionality in Numbers, or maybe even TextEdit... As for Coverflow and crap... that reminds me of the old days of when I wrote Commodore 64 games... I'd design a great opening screen, some cool music, and then quit before the actual game was written... Really, my online banking has...
Premier Elements will get you a similar end result, but no where near as fast and fun... it doesn't do real-time previews for example. It's about $100. I've used it plenty on a PC, and it is the best of the consumer-end apps on a PC. That said, I couldn't stand it any more and it was the compelling reason I went to a Mac. That was 1 1/2 years ago, and now I have an iMac, MacBook, iPod Touch, Airport Extreme, Airport Express, Logic Express, and Final Cut Express. I sold...
I replaced mine... just for fun really, but now the PS3 and MacBook play nicer with each other. I use an Express to beam across to my workplace (across the street). Nothing earth shattering, but apple's extender functions are the easiest I've seen.
