  • Hi, Can someone help me understand the family plan situation? I am currently on a family plan that has never had an iPhone on it. Is it possible simply to add a new iPhone 3G to this plan (signing for another 2 years) and add the monthly charg…
  • why is iTunes consistently prefaced by "ubiquitous" in AI articles? Especially when the article is about something other than its (supposed) ubiquity, like adding content? It would be like saying, some new pollution from Newark entered the Earth's u…
  • Personally, I think 3 races is perfectly sufficient, and indeed has an advantage over games that stress an artificial idea of diversity over true distinction between the races they provide. WC3 did the diversity and balancing pretty well, but frankl…

  • USB. It's not an ideal situation. But Generals+ZH takes up so much space due to Aspyr's somewhat neolithic install process --I'm loath to give over three precious gigs on my main drive (which is only 40gb to begin with-- last time I don't spring for…

  • Cool, but I don't understand the "window-shutters" double hinge approach at all. What is saved with this design over a Macbook with a 360-degree hinge? A stiff hinge wouldn't need the support of the optical drive (which sounds dicey anyway), and you…

  • Thanks for the input, very helpful. I definitely see the wisdom of the dedicated server, and it makes much more sense to me in terms of the organization's tech future. One question; would getting a Poweredge RAID server or something similar r…

  • I can see the logic behind the Zoom function, assuming applications are coded to use it properly. However, my frustration is just that-- it is so inconsistent. Most annoying is when using Zoom will pop a window away from the left hand margin of the …
  • Sorry - forgot to mention - it has USB 2.0 as well.
  • Thanks for the help - I'm definitely leaning towards the Firewire. I guess my only remaining question is whether Firewire is going to become obselete any time soon - thoughts?
  • All this talk is really exciting - I mean, there's nothing I'd like more than being able to run certain PC games and such but my big worry is that even in a software lock-box, the presence of Windows will corrupt either OS X or my hardware or some p…
  • OK, problem solved... real silly on my part. Basically didn't realize that I had to install the updater onto my harddrive, then run the updater - I thought the fact that I couldn't install the "update" onto my iPod from the original downloaded pack…
  • Just giving this thread a bump. Still looking for help! Please! Quote: Originally posted by nickgb3 Here's my setup: 15gb iPod with the row of four round buttons - what is that, 3G? iBook 1Ghz with 10.4.2 iTunes 6.0 Basically, …
  • I'm that way too! At least about music... I got into a very minor scuffle with Apple over an Arcade Fire track that had a beep and a skip just at the best part. They came through in the end.
