No they are not forcing me to print but if I am on the receiving end I have to keep track of the paper. Yuck, I hate paper.

Update works perfectly on VMware OSX Guests, I tried it this morning no problem.
For anyone who wants to know how to get OSX working in VMWare Workstation on Windows 7 for iPhone Development I have made a blog post about it on our site.

Hey thanks for posting the video. I knew it had something to do with update that was released today. People that had the update previously still likely have the functionality still. They really must have pulled it from the build they released today.

You said something about a mini update. Where the hell do you find that in the developer account online? Never heard of that before.

Apple.ca or Apple.com shows the 10.6.5 combo updater as:

* Version: 10.6.5
* Post Date: 10 November, 2010
* Download ID: DL1324
* File Size: 977.21 MB

When I go to download it, my download shows only 203 MB.

Anyone else having this problem?

I always like to update from the Combo Updater but don't want to until the download shows the same size as what it's supposed to be.

This was the first "fix" that I not only noticed, but repeatedly reported. Thanks AAPL!

Will the real 10.6.5 Combo Update please stand up?

Here ya go:
http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1324

It's almost 1GB. But that's because it can upgrade a 10.6.0 machine all the way up in one go.

10.6.5 so far has been a good release for me. Anything involving graphics has become smoother, especially Top Sites. I can now use the 4x6 arrangement without Safari stalling. I don't have Airprint requirements, so no comment on that.

Also, once you set up a printer, your device remembers it - that's why my printer was already selected.


can you tell me which build of 10.6.5 you have? The build release by Apple does not support the features you are having luck with UNLESS the printer is one of 4 HP printers. Even some of their other eprint printers *such as the 8500a, do not work. You must have a build prior to 10H574.....

I dont think the Airprint support is required in the base OS. I have the 574 build. I have itunes 10.1 b2 and 4.2GM of IOS on the iphone and ipad. I print fine with this setup and DO NOT have an eprint printer.

Not always an option, there are still situations where having to print out is still necessary (I wish I could never print anything again, but we're not there yet). And what about things like needing to print out something like a map for someone? Just because you don't need a feature doesn't mean it shouldn't exist.

10.6.5 is not currently compatible with PGP disk encryption. It bricked my MBP. See this support thread:

Beware anyone who offers advice about updating without first checking for compatibility issues or having a working backup or restore option available

Go TO printing and paper - FROM tablet

After 5,000 years we're finally coming around the circle

We're moving into the Digital Age

And so many of you want to hang on to the Old Ways ?

Sheez, why not just go back to Scrolls, Parchment, or chisel it in stone ?



...........

Here's two good reasons to give the trees a break

.

Do you know the USA's #1 export to China ?

Paper

Yes - our old junk recycled paper, by the boatload, in convoys

China found it's cheaper for them to buy our trash than grow their own and process from scratch

Plus - our old crap is such a high grade, they can't make paper of that quality for a cheaper price

Shit Dudes, wake up - do the math, Chinese have, and bet they didn't use an abacus either



.

Other Reason ...

9-11

Remember the photos, videos, etc as the Twin Towers fell ?

What was the ONE thing that survived ?

Floating all over the place, would not go away, was a tidal wave

Paper - Paper - Paper

Two Massive Buildings fall - thousands of People die

But the damn paper lives on and on

Remember a TV Ad by Xerox, IBM, (?) - had a group of folks sitting around a conference table trying to figure how to cut more money from their Company's Expenses. One guy, while looking over a stack of reports/etc, asks "What about this, all this paper? How much could we save here?"

And THAT commercial was 10 or 15 years ago





.

We have to get off this Dead End Path of trees/printing/paper

(and get a hard ass too, skip the extra thick puffy Charmin - go European Crepe - but those with 'roids may be forgiven and excused, ha ha)

.

The USA's junkie habit of Paper is perhaps the best example - along with Gasoline/Cars/Varoom and Toys/Games/Entertainment - of our waste and culture of constant consumer consumption that's the primary cause of our "problems" the past few years, but has been building for 40+ years, and will be our downfall if we don't change our ways, and fast.



.


Get Wise - Get Hip

Think Differentâ„¢

Go Digital





.

(good, glad to get this rant off my chest)

paper is here to stay for a while at least, unless you can get me 100+ eink pages to print to (as opposed to one reader page, so I can browse through it) I 'm going with paper because I want to save my eyes.

edit: don't worry, my bad, had the wrong combo updater
post #103 of 111
Well I just checked and they STILL haven't fixed the font spacing issue on the Help menu. Pathetic.

SL actually introduced this 'feature' when it came out and 5 updates later it's still there.

Not here but I posted quite early at MDN that 10.6.5 had measurably accelerated my MBP for application opening, start-up, iPhoto responsiveness, and now I've tested it, Aperture 3.1 now opens in just a couple of seconds! This is the biggest increase in snappiness I've had from a simple point update.

Well done Apple!

Even though Apple released 10.6.5 AirPrint is automatically added to the update, I have tried myself with it and I can share printers through that updated computer.
And Steve Jobs said don't believe anything you read (AirPrint still is coming in iOS 4.2)

I am glad to hear from someone as passionate about this as I am. I have found that beyond the environment and financial advantages that it is just so much easier to search for files on a computer then on paper and going paperless doesn't make your office so messy.

"And THAT commercial was 10 or 15 years ago"
BusinessWeek talked about the paperless office and that was 35 years ago! When computers came around we actually ended up using DOUBLE the paper we used before computers, not less!

Well it would force people to change faster. Some people will put off change as long as they possibly can.

Maybe this was released earlier and I failed to notice, but intertial scrolling is now working on my mid 2008 MBP

That's true. I still wish there was an easier way to transfer information. Handing someone next to you a sheet of paper takes a second. Sending them a piece of digital information from your device to theirs can take 15 seconds or more.

I'm having a lot of trouble with VNC sessions since I installed this update a couple weeks ago.

I'm downloading the combo updater now, hopefully it will solve the problem.
