  • Does anyone have an email address for Applecare? Last time I phoned them, their phone service was awaful.
  • I hope Apple roll this out in Europe soon. The majority of stuff they've got so far would probably be quite popular this side of the Atlantic.

  • I can't see any reason to introduce the next gen iMacs until the Memon or Lepord comes out. iMac releases seem to be few and far between as it is. Pardon the spelling, I've had a few drinks.

  • I reckon that if they have a keynote at it they'll probably just release something litttle. A software upgrade or a new Universal Binary or something like that. I have a feeling that the whole Apple/French Government thing might put Apple off do…
  • I had a look at the memory for the G4 iBooks on the Apple store and it wasn't too expensive (we're both students, so we get the educational dsiscount anyway) and I'm pretty sure I could source the same for cheaper. Unfortunatly, upgrading/cross-g…
  • Where as my MS one works about 6 feet away from the computer if I'm lucky and theres nothing too thick in the way. Good point.
  • It's reading: 0:06 up 11:00 2 users load averages 0.14 0.24 0.13 It's been on for around about 10 hours, but it's spent most of that time asleep.

  • Buy a travel adapter at the airport, it should plug in between the forign mains and your US plug. Should be a couple of dollers as opposed to about $30. Doesn't look as pretty, but it works perfectly. Check voltage compatability between Europe a…
  • I used to have a problem like this on Windows XP with iTunes 5. I eventually worked out it was due to a FireFox plugin called FoxyTunes which forced iTunes to remain open. I don't know if it would work the same on a Mac (since I no longer use Fo…
  • Dude, would you carry your MBP around your home town/Colledge Campus/state? Europe is not full of criminals, just make sure you have travel insurance and don't leave your bag unattended. It's the same kind of common sense you use when taking a…
  • One of the things that put me off switching before the MBP came out was the really poor MSN for Mac, since I use MSN to keep in touch with lots of my friends. And as it is I have no use for the iSight since I don't know anyone who uses iChat. …
  • My microsoft 5 button optical mouse has been on the same two batterys for about 6 months at high usage. Why do the Apple ones use so much power?
  • I hate to say it, but if it's getting bad, then switch to Firefox and download the Adblock plugin for it.
