People still like DVD's. Why can't Apple at lease make a DVD Studio Express for those that still need this capability.

Maybe I'm not recognizing an obvious hint, but I don't get how you connect the lion with Asia. Lions are the only big cat native to Africa. All the other big cats are from Asia or the Americas, AFAIK. What am I missing here?

Not Asian, but Aslan, the name of the lion in C.S. Lewis The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe. I had to look it up.

If you want to experience real pain, try two monitors on Windows. And if your really frisky, try three. Then try to mirror two displays on one while having a separate third. Trivial on the Mac (option drag one screen on top of another to mirror those two while leaving the third alone). Stuff I have taken for granted for *decades* on the Mac that Windows, even Windows 7, struggles to do well. I still run across video cards that won't play video embedded in PowerPoint on the second display. Freaking 2010 and some video cards/drivers choke on this under Windows. Yeah "diversity"!

BTW - here is an excellent solution for you: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/33264/secondbar

Although personally I prefer this solution, pioneered by early Mac accessory maker E Machines when people complained about having to go to the top of the screen for the menu bar on the first of the large 21" high resolution monitors back in the day - convert the menubar to a contextual menu: http://mac.brothersoft.com/dejamenu.html

Works even better than the menubar in every menu that Windows does, and ironically is how the NeXT OS that OSX is based on worked. Middle mouse button FTW

edit: And even if it doesn't work as an LPD printer, your parents do realize you can pick up multi-function black and white laser printers that are not only faster than their laserwriter but will also duplex, scan fax as well as directly support ethernet for under $200?

I have a Canon 4370dn and it's routinely under $200. Cartridges are cheap too - $70 at costco - less than $0.04 a page.

Obviously Apple doesn't see a problem, but there are at least two alternatives to the single menu bar on one display - I posted them a little earlier in the thread. DejaMenu is my personal favorite.

Dual 27" displays here I come

Hopefully the new OS doesn't throw a wrench in every application I own again. After upgrading to Snow Leopard I had to repurchase 6 apps because Apple dropped support for some version of Java and my printer didn't work for 3 months.

I'll have to wait a bit longer before switching this time.

However, a Macbook Air with a smaller footprint would be a welcomed upgrade.

It's more than just pulling it out - often you can buy it before the announcement is over. At a minimum you can often fondle the shipping version after the event (if you are lucky enough to attend). Very rarely do they have non-functioning prototypes encased in rotating plastic...

Woot!

Back to the Mac, people!

To those who always complaint Apple is spending too much time and resources on iDevices, eat your short! Mwuahaha....

Replaced, meaning: updated. Not happening. Relax.

You have 14 days to return it for a refund. If you've opened it, you get the refund minus 15% of the cost as a restocking fee.

I'm thinking that the Mac Pros and even the iBooks will go down in price.

As far as the new Air. I think it is gonna be what Microsoft had wanted their Courier to be.

Also, Apple will probably bring out a new Bluetooth Remote with a few controls to make the AppleTV more user friendly to most of the complainers. They probably had that ready on the release of the ATV, but they waited for the GoogleTV's remote to come out at $299.00 for people
to not be to upset when they offer one under $150.00 with all the beauty of the small remote.

Also, FaceTime will be included in the new iLife. Time to start showing Skype how to do it right.

No new Mac Pro chips, so there's absolutely no reason for them to reduce the price. They stopped selling the iBook four years ago.

resolution independence is a must.

I hope they don't tweak the interface that much, I love aqua, and I hate the more subdued ones on itunes. I hope they've got a lot of feedback about itunes interface debacle where all is whited out in grey, and I hope they don't use it.

I thinks this is a crucial os for apple in that now they have to continue their superiority in a much broader user base and still retain the mac character of their os. It's tricky, it really is.

Genius marketing. "

LMAO... CNET writers think 10.7 will come on any new machines and ship in Nov.

Maybe the should practice asking questions like "do you want fries with that".

I have my Macbook Pro connected to two monitors.

I have relocated the menu bar on my main monitor (28") via System Preferences' Diplay panel.

I installed SecondBar. http://blog.boastr.net/?page_id=79 and it puts a menu bar on my MacBook.

Unfortunately there isn't a ThirdBar yet.

And so I also installed DejaMenu; which works on all three monitors but I use it primarily on the second screen http://homepage.mac.com/khsu/DejaMenu/DejaMenu.html

Geeze! Along with Mark Wozniak, and Jim McCann, my wife Lucy -- I owned Computer Plus!

PM me or whatever, your real name -- I was known as Mr. Lucy.

As to the postulate/corollary, it was an IBM inside joke -- working for IBM in Palo Alto, at the time...

Long story short... Standing in the IBM cafeteria one 7 AM, waiting to get a cup of fresh coffee for 25 cents.

A frazzeled guy walks in, stands in the line at the coffee machine to buy a half a cup of crap coffee for $1.

Why?

Bought mine the first day it was available. Cost me nearly 8 grand in Canada. But, along with Pagemaker, it more than paid for itself.

Heavier than hell. Gave it up in 2000 as well.

Ha! Owen Tarranto, Comtroller of Adobe, walked into our Sunnyvale store with one of these 100-lb babies under his arm. The LaserWriter wasn't, yet, available.

He was followed a few minutes later by Bob Brown.

Bob sat in a booth with a Mac, directly connected to the LaserWriter through a serial port.

He keyed in native PostScript code -- and truely magical things happened -- beautiful art, shading and typography,

Bob did this for about a week... There were SRO crowds...

So as a recent hobby developer for the Mac platform I'm also hoping for a final release of Xcode 4.0. Please...please...please!

That would make my day - err year.
