 Says he who has clearly never truly used Plex. I'm not going to argue that its interface is better than the native AppleTV's; it's not. The AppleTV interface is definitely better. However, I'd hardly call it hideous and unintuitive, particularly when I compare it to so-called media extenders like the Xbox 360 which has the most hideous, unusable interface I've ever seen. And while your comment about the interface is somewhat objective, your assertion that metadata is...
 This (well, these), exactly. When the AppleTV has an app store and (more to the point) can run Plex natively, then I will buy. I have a first generation AppleTV and I love the interface and seamless integration with my iTunes content but it was only after it was hacked to run Boxee that it truly became a useful device. Sadly, Boxee dropped support for their freely downloadable apps (yeah, I get that they wanted to make money, but they effectively used us all as beta...
   Count me in as one of those naysayers. I've been using Aperture since v1 and prefer its free-flowing workflow over Lightroom's more constrained environment. Give Aperture geometric correction tools and, unless I'm missing some major features in Lightroom that I'm unaware of, it'll have everything I need in a post-production tool. Quadra, how is Aperture not a worthy competitor? I'm not asking to be snarky, I'm serious - I keep hearing that Aperture needs to catch up to...
Not sure about the headline. Before I read the article, I found myself wondering what sort of fluid the game controller was leaking! :)
 Yeah, thanks - I've tried that. Flipped it on and off a few times, restarted, disabled extensions and plugins. Still not working for me, unfortunately. I'm sure it's something simple and stupid since it only seems to be happening to me :)
Enhancements? About just allowing me to view a PDF in Safari. Since Mavericks DP2 clicking a PDF link inside Safari brings me nothing but a page full of its binary content...
I got my 5S a few days after they went on sale and noticed battery life that was about half that of my three-year old iPhone 4 and was a bit worried. Certainly the first day was the worst as it was busy restoring apps and my iCloud backup but battery life three or four days in was still poor. I'm not sure what's changed, but in the past week my battery life has been phenomenal. Perhaps those moaning about their battery consumption should give it a few days to settle down?...
 Just in case this thread hasn't been sufficiently jacked... ;-) I also loved iWeb and used it to create several travel journals and did a little bit of blogging with it. With the integration with MobileMe, it was a rather easy way for average folks to create websites (and this coming from a guy who gets paid to build internal websites using PHP, Java, JavaScript, and AJAX against MySQL). It seemed like a short-sighted decision to kill it. Your thoughts take it even...
 Yeah, for now iWork '09 works just fine. Eventually compatibility will break I presume. Maybe not: I'm amazed that iWeb still functions even though it's not been updated since what, Snow Leopard days?
 My suspicion (as seems to be the conventional wisdom) is that Apple more-or-less ported over the iOS versions of iWork to OSX (after all, didn't Apple proclaim these were rewritten from the ground up?) and that's why a lot of functionality was removed from all of the apps. I sincerely hope that Apple begins adding back what's missing and enhanced beyond what we had before. Migrate what was once Bento into the suite, give Numbers some real power (more functions, pivot...
