  • I'm still baffled why Apple still offers the 14" iBook with the same # of pixels as the 12". They don't say it on the tech specs (XGA?) but I'm assuming they're both still 1024x768.. which is fine for the 12" but crappy for the 14". They really shou…

  • Quote: Originally posted by rok okay, anyone notice after installing QT 6.4 that metal has now been "tweaked"? much less pronounced "brush" texture, and there's a few extra pixels in between the window widgets. is this a common tweaking among …
  • Stupid stupid stupid... Open iCal. Maximize the window to fullscreen ('+' widget). Then open the Info drawer ('i' button @ bottom right corner). The stupid thing opens off the screen. What's up with that? What's the average user that doesn't unde…
  • I've got an A70 with a 256MB flash card and I love it. It takes great pictures (I have it set on Auto most of the time with full resolution and detail). I can also take 32 second videos with this thing at 640x480 resolution that looks pretty decent.…
  • I can't play Pool on Yahoo now with Safari
  • I don't want to sound like I'm whining, but this seems to be Apple's trend lately. They hype something up a whole bunch, then wait too long to give it an update. The G4 iMac, for example, seemed like it was going to be the next big thing in personal…
  • Why do people, especially Mac users, even use Hotmail in the first place? It's really only meant to be web-based and used in Microsoft's email programs via their proprietary protocol... hence it doesn't play well with Mail. Is Hotmail really that gr…
  • I use a Motorola C332 phone with my eMac over a USB cable that came with my digital camera. It really works great. I use iSync with it no problem, and I can connect to the internet too if need (albeit very slowly).
  • Does anyone know if Panther's Mail supports composing emails in HTML format (in addition to TXT and RTF)? I don't think there's many email programs out there that support reading of RTF emails, so if you make a message with a bunch of colors and fan…
  • I recently got a PowerShot A70 at Target for $299 and I'm very pleased with it. I ordered some 4x6 prints via iPhoto and they turned out great. I really have no complaints about it except it isn't the sleekest looking camera out there...
  • Quote: Originally posted by Bioflavonoid Mail makes a rocket sound when you send mail... I had the volume all of the way up and it scared the hell out of me! Is there a way to set what sent mail sound effect you want?
  • Apple went 13 months before they gave the G4 iMac an update, and its only been like 5 months since that update happened, so I wouldn't plan on anything too soon... which is a shame because the iMac should be updated at least twice a year so it doesn…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Jacob Wootten With all this WWDC news, no one noticed to see Apple completely dropped the "Pro" Mouse & Keyboard with the introduction of the "eMac/Apple" Mouse & Keyboard. They now retail for $49 instead of $…
  • I don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but has anyone notice that "Back" and "View" under the toolbar icons in the Finder window aren't really centered under the toolbar icons? They're shifted a little to the right. And why does it say "Bac…
  • I can't seem to get Safari to install on my eMac. I downloaded the installer to the desktop, and when I run it, I get a message saying "A newer version of Safari (version 1.0.0.1.75) already exists on the volume ..." I have v73 on my computer right …
  • I dunno if this is new or not, but I just noticed that removing an icon from the Dock makes a sound effect along with the poof visual. Is that new in 10.2.6?
  • There's a little known email service called Fastmail ( http://www.fastmail.fm ) and I've been using it ever since iTools became .Mac. It's been great.. it has IMAP support so I can use Mail, web-based email, 10MB storage, 40MB bw/month, 50 domains t…
  • Quote: Originally posted by EdinLA43 The sound quality of the 128kbps AAC and the 192kbps MP3 are very, very close. On the 192kbps MP3, the highs are a bit crisper and clearer (such as cymbals and vocals) but this can be compensated for with twe…
  • Everything is fine on my eMac. I can't notice anything different than 10.2.4 except now my modem stays connected to the net.
