  • I had the 17" G4 for two years - loved it. If I could have replaced it with a 17" MBP I would have - various reasons I had to replace it when the MBP came out and couldn't wait. Anyway, if I was a real road warrior, I would want a 15" - plenty bi…

  • Some examples: The keyboard keys are very small (smaller than the blackberry), so dialing the phone is hard - the onscreen dialing is worse, hard to hit the right buttons when finger dialing. Also, since I'm using GoodLink, hitting the numbers on t…
  • The crippling of Bluetooth on the 650 is just to disable dial up networking - i.e. you can't use the Treo as a bluetooth modem on your mac. You can still use it as a modem via USB though. There was/is a patch out there that re-enables DUN via bl…
  • Actually replying to the question... As noted, "Universal" binaries can support multiple architectures of OS X - same as NeXTStep/OPENSTEP did in the NeXT days (i386,m68k, sparc and HP PA-RISC) - I used to regularly do builds for all four. Any…
  • I have a MBP 2.0 and PS feels to much the same speed it did on my 1.3GHz PBG4. Which is of course about 1/3 of the speed that it was on my G52x2.
  • Canon i960. Great colour, cheap and has individual ink cartridges. Prints photos very well and does an good job printing documents.
  • Baaed on everthing I've read, I've gone with the 100GB 7200RPM drive - While the additional 20GB would be nice, since I really use my laptop as a desktop most of the time - i.e. it's powered, I'm not too concerned about a slightly lower battery life…
  • Quote: Originally posted by DaveGee My question is how do 'sensitive workplaces' deal with todays cell phones? The same way they deal with regular cellphones - they are not allowed, and neither are laptops in some places, nor USB flash dr…
  • I'll be ordering a 1.8GHz MacBook with 100GB 7200RPM drive as soon as my boss approves it - should be later today. I would love to wait for the 17" since I have a G4 17", but the price looks like it will be too steep - my company will normally on…
  • Based entirely on the fact that my company's laptop replacement policy says "new laptop every two years" and my PowerBook is 2 years old this week - I'm predicting that the first Mac to get an intel processor will be the PowerBook Of course, I a…
  • Quote: Originally posted by toma that's what I mean? so let's hope that the drivers and the OS will soon have parity to (I hope apple doesn't wait for the mactel to introduce a 64bit GUI to osX)? tomas The 64-bit GUI is not relevant. Any…
  • Quote: Originally posted by e1618978 Too big a pill to swallow. T-mobile is the same size company as apple, so they would have to double the number of apple shares outstanding to buy it (Apple does not have enough money to pay cash). Could …
  • Both buy PPC and wait My company is due to replace my PB in December (we get a new laptop every 2 years), but I'll wait for an Intel machine. For our new home, I plan on buying a mini - that won't change, I'll buy it when I need it.
  • Quote: Originally posted by asdasd Their porting story for Developers is not that strong. It seems we need to shell out $999 for the oportunity to test on a PC running the OS, and - more than that - we cant compile or link on a ppc Mac. The b…
  • Jeez, I must take up Apple prognostication professionally - Steve only missed a couple of points from my predicted script - must talk to him about that, he shoulda just followed my script like I told him to I'm especially pleased and surprised t…
  • Neither, it's still just OS X... We don't talk about MacIBM or MacMoto do we?
  • Quote: Originally posted by shetline I call BS. I recently did an OS X port of some open source C code which had originally been written to run under x86 Linux. There were endian problems galore. Whoever wrote a few of the code modules couldn't …
