    Thanks for the suggestions, guys!


    Now I know to dial my enthusiasm back a bit until we start getting towards the end of the month.


    Apple keynotes, software, and hardware releases: I've worked in I.T. for over ten years and never got excited about anything coming out until I bit into the big Apple.


    Who's clever idea was it to make technology enjoyable?

    These both work for me far better than seasons.

    You'll have to look that one up to understand.

    This happened to me last year. My iPhone 4 was pinched, and the thief simply turned it off. If Apple would change iOS so that your PIN is required to turn the phone off, that would help somewhat. Doing a hard reset should also require your PIN so that the scallywag can't go down that route.

    Huh, the iPhone belonging to one of my parents was stolen out of their car and Find My Phone quickly lead the the police to the location of and resulted in the arrest of the thief.

    (Grand theft over an iPhone is pretty stupid)


    That being said, Apple needs to implement the feature with UUID so it can be tracked even if the phone is wiped.

    Doesn't iPhoto's Journals accomplish what Galleries did? As for iDisk, I agree some kind of replacement would be nice, but I think we will have to make do with the iCloud stuff given in ML, or simply use DropBox.

    I had six family accounts with maxed iDisk storage. I used them for my legal files - making them available anywhere. .MOV video depos took up lots of space (usual Federal case has 12-24 depos, 6-8 hrs long - you have tons of data from just one case!) along with pleadings, transcripts, scans of exhibits - well, I darn near kept all iDisks full as case after case went by.

    Dropbox is limited in size to 55 Gig and you need to use client-side encryption. Box.net can provide the same space as the $1.2k/yr 1.2 Tb my six family iDisk accounts had, for about five times the price. The same applies to everybody else.

    I have a 32 TB array (4 LaCie 8 TB drives at RAID 2) hanging off of my Snow Leopard server (dang Apple for making Lion Server so dumb - I can't upgrade and iCloud does not play nicely with my server).

    A real iDisk replacement would be greatly appreciated.
