 I believe you mean seventh ?  I think it's usually a couple of weeks. The latest updates have only been $20 though and I can't imagine this one's going to be any more than that.
  Also: when running Windows. I've set my touchpad to emulate a right-click both with the 'two-finger touch' and 'bottom-right-corner touch' methods, and neither of them are particularly reliable. I often have to click several times before a right-click is sent. I spend most of my day running Windows in a VM and so I have to use a mouse.
Nice. I like the built-in USB charging. Until I got the Magic Mouse, my favorite mouse was an IOGEAR Bluetooth Optical Mini Mouse. Tiny, used standard AAA batteries and had a built-in USB port for charging Ni-Cad/NiMH AAAs. The Magic Mouse is slightly less portable, but more feature-rich and I've bought a USB AA charger so I can travel with it.
  I've found iBooks to be both promising and unusable. It's great with my non-DRM content (in fact I find it more useful in some ways than the Kindle ecosystem as all of the PDFs and non-DRM books I've ever opened in iBooks in my iOS devices automatically showed up in iBooks - with my Kindle I've had to manually add any content I didn't specifically purchase from Amazon [or send to my device via my Kindle email address] to my Kindle device and my Kindle apps), but with...
  I'm not aware of that issue - but if you've got 10.9 through official means, you should be able to report that through either Apple's bugreport or AppleSeed tools.
  Definitely interesting reading in your post. There's a lot of history I was unaware of. I'm one of those mass market folk who find the convenience of digital media so compelling that I generally settle for an inferior product. I have my collection of movies (both SD DVD and HD media) ripped and available via Plex which offers me the convenience of streaming to any number of TVs and computers in my house via Plex clients, computers outside my house via MyPlex, and...
  I've got no love (or even like) for Microsoft, but I believe you have a lot of this wrong when it comes to BD vs HD-DVD. From my understanding, Sony killed HD-DVD by throwing money at everyone who supported the format. I'm also not sure what clear-cut advantage you're talking about - I suppose the theoretical advantage was the 30gb vs 50gb limit of HD-DVD vs BD, but from personal experience (I have both players), HD-DVD had a superior interface. I find HD-DVD to be more...
  There are still (mostly minor) issues with both, so it's hard to say which will be first. But as someone else implied, it's likely iOS 7 will be tied to the new hardware being announced in a few weeks, so unless the hardware is pre-announced well in advance of its actual release date, you're right; it probably will go GM before 10.9.
  There was a large computer lab in Mendocino at the ROP that had a plethora of Macintosh computers (these weren't cheap ones - they had a few IIfx computers that were used by students learning animation and graphics (and these were $10,000 machines) alongside a whole much of IIsi and IIci machines. I'm quite certain the lab did not have $100k+ to spend on these machines so they clearly were donated by somebody. I guess I just assumed that Apple donated a certain amount...
  I think that more than tablets it's about, "please, will anyone use Bing instead of Google? Please!!?!?!?!?" :)   I periodically see web ads inviting me to try the Bing challenge, saying that 9 out of 10 people prefer Bing results to Google. I tried the challenge myself -- the results are done blindly so you don't know which you're looking at, Bings or Googles. And 9 times out of 10 I couldn't stand the Bing results.   Until now, the only reason to bring up the Bing...
