  • I'm confused about this; would it be reasonable to say that a notebook only "officially" has Santa Rosa if it has the enhanced Core 2 Duo, the Crestline chipset, *and* the Intel X3100? (Since that's what's called for in the spec?)
  • Take THAT Motorola! That's what you get for screwing us over for five years with the G4. Bet you thought we forgot all about the 500 Mhz Fiasco back in 2000, eh?
  • Will this idiotic rumour ever die? How many times do the people who continue to trumpet on and on about "OS X on x86" have to be told that if Apple did jump to x86, none of the existing apps out there would work, and that all current developers …

  • I don't know if it's been answered here before, but to what Macs do "PowerMac7_2", "PowerMac8_1", and "PowerMac9_1" refer to? And what about "SMU_Neo2"?
  • Awesome. Thanks! btw, according to a reader report on XLR8yourmac.com, the latest version of Pozytron's AcidSearch crashes Safari on startup after the update. I think I'll hold off on installing it until a fix is posted.
  • Are you going to post the .bom, Kickaha?
  • After having just seen the second part of the season finale (6 pm rerun on Space), johnq's theory seems to make some sense. Someone else here (or maybe on Slashdot, I don't know) also mentioned something about how maybe the Cylons discovered earth d…

  • Quote: It also probably aids in cutting the confusion for which the "v1.0" part at the end, which is one of those "Hey, we screwed up the original update, so on 2004-12-09 we're release Security Update 2004-12-02 v1.1" So, you see, the date isn't n…

  • When people found out from Sierra that the Mac version of Half-Life would only support Mac-Mac network play, they were absolutely livid; people were outraged that they wouldn't be able to play Counter-Strike against their PC-using friends at LAN par…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Dazabrit I forgot to say the G5 line doesn't rely on IBM processors... Motorola and their long awaited G5 chip? As long as Apple continues to use the 970 in its computers, and call them G5's, then yes, the G5 lin…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Frank777 I was thinking of the Westenders - DPImac, CompuSmart and Red Tag - all in Mississauga. Have you been to DPI? What are they like? I've thought of paying those guys a visit for a while. Quote: As fo…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Frank777 It's about time. I think the smart independent stores will see this as a plus, since the Yorkdale location doesn't actually encroach on anyone's turf. A Square One or Sherway Gardens location would have sen…
