For me as a not too tech savvy man, it is hardly understandable, that
the more you use the battery, the longer lasts the battery, the more
you can draw out of it. Everybody tells me that, even Apple claims,
that you better use the battery frequently (means: draw until zero, than charge),
in order to get a long lasting battery. Makes sense?

cheers

Hi, Australia is an interesting place. It has become a little more diverse, a kind of American- media- influence- Colonial- English- history- Immigrant- culture- mix- Aboriginal- minority- history- huge- empty- continent- some- beautiful- nature- but- also- great- party- cities (Sydney+Melbourne)- kind- of- place.

"For me as a not too tech savvy man"
-- I thought you are a woman not a man? Or do you mean, "as a not too tech savvy person"

Anyway, batteries. No, the longer you use the battery, the more battery cycles you use up (check http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/ for a good application).

You use a full charge, then deplete it completely, because that counts as a proper battery cycle. If you charge halfway, then deplete it half, then charge again, that still counts as "burning up" a battery cycle, so that is not good.

So you want to use as little battery cycles as possible, while making sure each battery cycles is used as fully as possible.

So plug in to electricity mains as much as possible, but of course it would be a good idea to use a FULL battery cycle (full deplete and full charge up) every two weeks, AFAIK it is also not good to NOT use the battery for too long.

Sebastian

You have a point about iLife '07 and Leopard. I want those to come with a new MacBook, preferably 14" wide, 1440x900(???).

So I may have to wait until new Mac laptops released and ship with Leopard.

You might as well buy Leopard seperately when it comes out sometime in Spring 07... Summer in Australia?
Unless you can wait...

But at least save some money on iLife (Upgrading software almost immediatly is annoying)

Ahhh, Fahrenheit. I miss the American system of measurement... NOT! Things are so much easier in the metric system. In school we had to use the metric system (it was logical) but in the realm outside of school it was back to cups, feet, hands and other body parts.

5 days and 7 hours to go.

Coincidences have to occur, otherwise life wouldn't be random.

Only 115 Hours to Go.
AAPL=$85.66 \t


It's fracking hilarious seeing all the Analysts releasing tons of reports trying to boost the AAPL share price. Hah! They all expected $90+ by now with all the hype. Too bad about SEC and Apple fracking up some financials.

115 Hours. They won't arrest Steve Jobs until after the keynote, right?
