    Are you sure that it's not just my user name?


     


    It is a well known problem (at least to me) that my user name always screws up the quoting system.

    What sucks is that none of those deals for Macs ever applies to me, because every retailer that I know about that sells Macs charges me tax, because of my state.

Any discrepancies will be totaled, taxed appropriately, penalties assessed and late payment interest added to your new tax bill. 



    Yeah and to raise you a furthermore - if you use a personal credit card to purchase online goods for your business, when they audit the business, you'll get audited too and if you get audited personally, your business gets an audit as well.

    Huddler I think is coded in Rails so they need to add some code like this:


     


    require 'htmlentities'
    coder = HTMLEntities.new
    coder.encode(username) which would print Apple ][


     


     


    but would show normally as Apple ][


     


    then do the reverse when creating the link


     


    coder.decode(username)


     


    And while they are at it they need a better DOCTYPE and an iso character declaration

    Exactly.  Always wait for Version 1.0.1.

    But this is MacBookAir6,2.
    There goes your 1.0.1 theory.

    In other words, arguing with overgeneralizations. Like you just did. "Anyone who (behavior) is a (label)"

    They're probably just holding them wrong.  :p

    (Sorry, I couldn't resist.  That sucks that people are having connectivity issues and I'd imagine a fix is in the works.)

    That's just not funny anymore. If it ever was. It's like a really awkward, un-funny, broken-record 'dad joke'. Or a 'that's what she said'-esque line that gets thrown around any time someone mentions 'problem with Apple product'.

    Yes, I'm in a sh!t mood, and I'm sick of idiots.

    I believe this is a firmware issue. Most people have not updated their airport or wireless device firmware to work with the new 802.11ac

    People, update the firmware and enjoy your improved wifi.

    No, 802.11ac doesn't work like that.

    I got the 11" i7 500Gg SSD last week and it's working faultlessly - no wi-fi or any other problems at all, though I must say the latest Magsafe connector comes off much easier than the original one did.

    Have these people tried something different? And how long is it till it automatically disconnects?
