  • If it is indeed a G4, is Apple giving them the replacement deal on the power supplies so the enemy can't hear them coming in from 20 miles away?
  • Im getting in on this one early so I can be the first smart-alec to say "here we go again, another Apple-should-lower-prices type thread". I'm not complaining, I cant contribute to the technical threads so now I can play. All I'll say is that I wond…
  • This is not a technical comment but a practical one in line with what Matsu said. It seems nearly certain that Apple will use the 970 chip now. A 64-bit chip in a consumer computer. That is exciting. But I hope Apple does not overestimate its appeal…
  • I cant really help you decide except to say this: You probably wont be disappointed even if you end up with "only" the 20". Like you I have the 17" ASD. I went to see the new 20" when it came out and it was beside the 17" with video mirroring on. T…
  • Okay, let the debate renew. Just, please, don't use the term "price point". Apple blah blah blah blah price point because blah blah blah price point. How about just PRICE! I remember when we had one word for the term "at this time". I guess "now"…
  • Ive decided, with your help, not to get a keyboard tray. Two things pointed out that should have been more obvious to me: ?USB port. I use the keyboard to plug in my camera. ?Legroom. I mentioned originally that my son didn't use his tray. More th…
  • Kecksy makes the key point(delicately) in distinguishing between the the literal and figurative uses of monopoly. In conversation we use it to mean a control of a market that is unfair and potentially illegal. Or something like that. So, like he sai…
  • Andor, I feel your pain. Actually, I do. Sorry for the cliched remark. I wasted so much time at EBay. Either just looking or actually bidding. Always the winning price went up to virtually new price in the end. Buyers are just plain nuts. For an…
  • Thank you, Eugene, thank you! I hope a PC troll stumbles into this thread. Proof we mac users can laugh at ourselves.
  • Again, thank you all. I went back to ars technica and read (okay, skimmed) the article on Jaguar. I was tired the next morning either because I stayed up an extra hour reading it or I was just mentally beat trying to absorb all the info. It was the…
  • Thank you MCQ and Grover. Ive checked it out and it seems to have a good mix of novice and expert posts. I noticed something interesting. Under the OS forums, there wasn't a separate one for Windows XP. I believe there was an NT/Win2000 category. I…
  • I hope .Mac makes it. Its a smart move for Apple to begin selling a service. Selling hardware(by that I mean "things") is a tough business. Even might Microsoft is trying to increase its move into services, a la IBM.
  • Good posts, gentlemen. Or ladies. You both have good points. Here is my worry. Jobs seems to have the old Mercedes-Benz attitude: Its so cool that people will have to have it. Don't tell me it's expensive--you just don't understand. People will pay…
  • Its not that OSX.2 isn't a dramatic improvement. I'm sure it is. The anger is over the fact that 10.1x was so green. 10.2 may be considered the first version that is ripe, ready for public consumption. After struggling with "a work in progress" (a d…
  • I started reading this site about 4 years ago. (Just a rough estimation) Apple was recovering; the iMac was a hit and the blue G3 tower was beautiful and competitive. The biggest complaint was the round mouse. The rumors focused on how Apple would b…
  • Thank you Trevor. So I'll continue to use iPhoto to download and organize photos and Elements to change selected ones.
  • Im probably going to buy Photoshop Elements. Besides the editing of photos, does Elements organize photos like iPhoto? In other words, will Elements take over all the functions of iPhoto? (Have I used the work "photo" enough in this post?)
  • As a novice I would not notice a subtle things like that. But its important. Its why we, and even many Wintellers, resent Microsoft's control. And see how relieved we were when it was revealed today that Apple isnt charging for iApps? The thought …
  • I have two Epson 740i's. One I inherited from my father. One is broken completely. The other is unreliable. Sometimes the carriage return slams against the right side and it malfunctions. Turning off and on several times fixes it. The broken one has…
  • Filmmaker, This is an old thread so I dont know if you'll get back here but I have a question. What about driver support for Canon printers in OSX? In general I read about driver problems for peripherals under OSX. Historically, Epson seems to be…
