NHL game highlight video doesn't play back smoothly like when watching games on cable/satellite (not yet a subscriber of NHL package). Is this how games look on GameCenter Live? A different feel than watching normal TV? Kind of jerky and stutter-y AFTER buffering is done while playing? (movie trailers, etc look fine so don't think it's a bandwidth issue)
Apparently my iMac (i7 from July 2010) won't be compatible with Mac mirroring: what component is it missing?
Lack of support for marginally older Macs.
Been a staunch Apple-er for oh, gosh, 30 years. Started with a 2-e and a Macintosh.
One of the things I always used to be able to argue, in favour of Apple, was better backwards compatibility, the way Apple never quickly obsoleted their gear the way MS did.
Now, it's hard to say that.
I can't believe they have gone and made a new OS that doesn't fully support computers that are less than 2 full years old.
To say that you can't do something on a Mac that was built before, what, August of 2010? that you can do on a September 2010 Mac seems both arbitrary and a push to force consumers to buy up every 2 years!
I think they are trying to say that they either aren't writing the -ware to run on SLIGHTLY older devices, or that the older devices don't have the CPU to run it?
I also have a gen 1 iPad. With the unlimited data plan because I was an early subscriber.
Now THERE'S an even more irritatingly obsoleted device......
get the NHL subscription on your TV. TOTALLY worth it.
