 So perhaps those of us who like Mavericks simply don't use gmail. I don't, and have been running 10.9 since DP2 and haven't had a single issue I would identify with the upgrade. This was a refreshing point-zero beta compared to the previous two major releases. 10.8 was a disaster rife with frequent kernel panics. I believe I've had only one with 10.9. I'm sure the gmail bugs annoy the heck out of anyone who relies on "please spam me and comb my emails for targeted...
 lol - now there's a solution I hadn't though of ;-)
This, making my upcoming decision that much tougher. I have a 1st-gen Mini that will likely be replaced next month and I'm trying to decide between the new Mini and the Air. Love the Mini form factor, but I do a fair bit of reading and often use my iPad as a second monitor (using the brilliant Air Display) which has me thinking the full-size screen might be nice too.   Ugh, someone make the decision for me :)
My condolences for Time-Warner customers. I hear they suck, but nobody could possibly generate as much suck as Comcast. They will nickel and dime you. They will lie about their prices. They will randomly increase your bill. And they will smile while they do it. One of my homes has FiOS service so I told Comcast to go screw themselves after they overcharged me by about $400 over a three month period and refused to go back and fix their mistake. Unfortunately, my other home...
And tech-savvy rednecks everywhere are celebrating. Both of them anyway.
 There's also a YouTube channel available via Plex. The interface isn't nearly as good as that of the AppleTV's, but it does give you access to pretty much everything: your subscriptions and playlists, top videos, searches, etc.
 Agreed - Boxee was/is great. Much better then XBMC (which, aside from pretty menus, I never really got the point of).
 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...
