  • Have a look at the source for http://www.apple.com/feedback/airportextreme.html where you see the code is almost identical bar the product name. All these feedback pages will be generated dynamically from a standard template page with URL redirectio…
  • If Apple can make 10c out of 99c on an average US song sale, then its margins must be great on sales in the European and especially UK iTunes Stores. In the UK, we are charged 79p per track. With the dollar currently at over $2 to £1, 79p is $1.60, …
  • The recent long lists make this list look rather inadequate, but here goes: Macs: - Mac Classic II 16Mhz 680?0 (1993-1994) - sold - LC 630 + 14inch screen 40Mhz 68030 (1994-1996) - now with my grandmother [96-99 - Hiatus for clone - see below]…

  • Has anyone noticed that in all the pictures, the red click wheel looks suspiciously unlike part of the photo and more like a flat red circle that someone has painted over the picture of a black iPod? Perhaps it was originally going to be all blac…
  • I've also found that sometimes after making a large number of changes to permissions on folders/files on a volume, you may need to run "Repair Disk Permissions" in the Disk Utility application before another networked computer takes notice of them. …
  • ... and as for shipping, many Apple products sold in the UK are shipped from Apple's facility in Ireland whereas US goods are often shipped from Taiwan or similar. It should cost them more to ship across the Pacific than it should to ship across the…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Mr. MacPhisto I always get a kick out of Europeans who complain about Apple's high(er) prices over there and seem to expect Apple to sell their machines in such a way that the 17% VAT (in some places) would bring the p…
  • I first raised this in 2002 in this thread. You will see that some of the issues about vibration of the screen and sound quality were dealt with then. If you search fro NXT speakers, you will find that this has been mentioned in a few other th…
  • Quote: Originally posted by PB If things like that were efficient, our universe would be much different than we know it! Obviously it wouldn't turn back into as much battery power as it started. Does anyone know approximately what proport…
  • Quote: Originally posted by FormatC2 If you take a look at the seven (7) fans blowing across the new G5 Xserve processors, you will realize it will be a little while longer before the technology will make it into a 1 inch thick notebook. But i…
  • Quote: Originally posted by shetline The Xserve's cooling system is designed to handle two G5s at 2.0 GHz each. The PowerBook and the iMac will only need one G5 processor. That G5 could run at speeds like 1.6, 1.4, and even 1.2 GHz, and still …
  • If you can cope with coding your template pages for index and media pages, then iView Multimedia is great. It is a cataloguing programme for images and all sorts of other media files (eg fonts, movies, audio etc) that can generate a complete web gal…

  • No one seems to have considered the fact that the built in speakers could be a flat panel over the whole screen. These flat panels give high quality disbursed sound (ie you don't get sweet spots only precisely halfway between the two speakers). The …
  • In the "Advanced" panel in the Account preferences, you need to deselect the option to "Include when automatically checking for new mail" for the account that isn't actually a real account.
  • Well only 10 days down so far, so I guess I'm still in the "danger zone" according to some of these posts, but so far so good - no dead pixels, white spots or uneven backlighting. Screen is not as improved compared to my old Rev A TiBook as I though…
  • Has anyone noticed that the batteries in the new iBooks are actually better than any of those available on the powerbook line. iBooks: 50 watt-hour (12in) and 61 watt-hour (14in) compared with: Powerbooks: 47 (12in), 46 (15in) and 58 (17in) W…
