Actually it was a typo. I typed "Bahviour" rather than "behaviour", and as a Brit long living in the US, I switch between US and UK spelling without really noticing now. The fact that someone takes the time to respond to a type is amusing though. Some people have too much time on their hands...
A refund for something out of warranty can be technically considered a settlement. Apple were probably covering themselves, because by refunding a device so far out of warranty, they are implicitly accepting responsibility for what happened, and in the wonderful world of "sue everyone you ever meet", it's only a small step to liability.
Not on Vista. You can only install a Vista upgrade from within the original OS install... OK, so there are many well documented workarounds, but they intended the upgrade versions of Vista to never have the ability to install on a clean HDD.
Should you be doing any of that at work?
Are there any references saying what the performance increase will be on a 32-bit machine? I am on a 2006 MacBook with 32-bit CoreDuo CPU.
I agree with your second part, but lets NOT forget best interests at all. I don't want Google's web crawlers sniffing my documents and figuring out (or making assumptions) that I might be applying for a loan, or about to sue my neightbour or whatever. Don't think it'll comne to that? Right... Didn't Amazon remotely wipe 1984 from thousands of Kindles recently? The ability to be subversive should never be in the hands of someone like Google. Look at how they help the...
Apple's behaviour has been a little strange recently.
It doesn't affect my meditation, sex-life or how I treat my team at work... So not worried to that extent... ...but some people I know are extremely heavily invested in Google and it doesn't seem easy to untangle yourself. My wife tracks all her invoice time-sheets on Google Docs (she's a freelance writer) plus all her email correspondance on Gmail (she never uses a local client to read them, all cloud). She also has a stock portfolio stored on her Google Finance home...
Yes I jumped aboard with the 3GS as well - 32 gigs of RAM is finally enough to hold a full TV season, a film or two plus enough music to last a business trip, AND Safari is now just about as fast as on a MacBook via WiFi. This thing's a beast. The next point release of iPhone OS just needs to address battery life (profiles would be good, kicking in location services or 3G only when needed - for example, switch off 3G when WiFi is available automatically). Nice phone...
I've been using Google for ten years, but I'm getting worried about their expansion, because the areas in which they're going are needless and fracture the eco system. Whatever we say about Microsoft, at least you know where you stand - you can keep your Word documents on your own HDD and open them with just about any application. I have no idea how far Google will go. Anyone think you'll be able to run Firefox or Safari on Google OS? Or Silverlight for Netflix...
