    It's not actually my setup - I just wanted to drop a link to it, since I believe it blasts most other peoples collections away :)

    Then, technically you are using his setup pics without his permission.
    The least you should do is put the original poster's name as credit.

    Just my luck I was gona take my macbook in for RSD tomorrow to get the heatsink replaced and now they come out with this fix. There is defiantly something wrong with the hardware though(i believe the heatsink has burned through some of the wires) besides the random shutdown when my system is at idle my fans will kick in suddenly at full speed then run for about a minute that fast or sometimes cut out completely then start up again. Something that it never did before rsd developed.

    I bet if i take it in tomorrow they will just tell me to apply this update which does nothing to solve the damage that has already been done to my macbook. My guess this is a fix apple has done to get them out of the 1 year warranty period were the macbook will then develop further hardware problems. Then you will have to pay out of pocket to get it fixed unless you buy apple care. Also this temporary patch helps them sell more apple care subscriptions.

    All i can say is i better not have hardware issues after my year is up or I'm done with apple :(
    If you look at Apple's history with out of warranty repairs, you will find that this is not the case. Apple has done many free repairs of out of warranty products with faulty parts, for example, faulty eMac logic boards.

    If there is a widespread problem with faulty hardware, Apple will take care of it.

    No kidding. So much for the "everyone already owns all The Beatles songs they want" mantra. ;)


    It was like saying everyone who wants an iPod already has one.

    FWIW, the one Toys R Us I checked with apparently had an initial delivery of TEN on Sunday, all of course gone within an hour. Now back to the digression of this thread.....

    Interesting.... and what is your prediction for International (Int) since we won't get the iPad before the end of April ? I also believed that once, but with different date for the iPad release (US vs Int) and knowing that about 50% of the sales are Int, I'm not sure about that anymore. End of April will be a shame for Apple... Friends around me already have there i7 laptop... but of course, they had to pay the ultimate price... being on Windows :eek:

    May, at the earliest; June ?

    Now I don't know what to do. I need an iPod that can hold all of my media (just my music alone is over 100 GB) so I can bring it with me wherever I go. (I hate having to choose a portion of my music instead of just grabbing it all.) But the MacRumors Buyer's Guide says not to buy - update soon. So is Apple going to kill it or release a new version? If I wait, I might miss out on getting one. But if I get one now, I might miss out on a better model. Ugh.

    Best to assume the iPod classic as we know it won't be updated, given the fact that's it's been nearly 2 years since it's last revision.

    So brace yourself for the inevitable and either consider buying what they currently have available to meet your portable digital storage needs, or be ready to shell out some cash for the high end iPod touch.

    Apple does not have the best have a build quality better then everyone else. They have some very good computers, but their are companies who build much better computers you have no evidence to back up your statement. Macs use the same hardware as everyone else.

    This is one of the most accurate statements in recent times. Nothing but facts. Thank you.

    Austrian Store is down as well.

    Take note, that Austria is NOT among those countries (US, UK, Germany,...) who are supposed to get iPad's in April.

    Just compare the German and Austrian iPad site

    So why WHY WWHHHYYYY are they updating the Austrian Store as well ???

    No- how ridiculous. Atheism is not a religion.

    Dogmatic belief in the nonexistence of God can be considered a religion.
    Agnostic atheism cannot though.

    Forgive me if this isn't new, but I just noticed that you can order the BT keyboard and mighty mouse as a package for $60 ($54 edu discount). Given that the BT MM alone is $69, this is a great deal.
    So, does anyone want to buy this option with their mac and I'll pay the $60 for both of them. Ok... $70 for your time and shipping. ;)

    something[/i], right? ;) :D As it stands now, since Merom is technically the "mobile chip", Apple has 5 mobile solutions (2 mobile MB/MBPs, 3 not-so-mobile iMacs) and a workstation solution (Mac Pro), so where is the desktop solution? :p :cool:

    Well, lets see where would they put it? Between Mac Mini and iMac.... you know in that $200 difference. Or maybe between iMac and Pro Mac.... in that what $300 difference. It seems like the Mac Mini bump and iMac expansion have left no room in the line-up for another Mac. Even with conroes... all speeds, sizes, prices are covered. There isn't room for a Conroe Mac. Period.

    They probably aren't even going to use Conroe chips because I bet its a lot more work to redesign the iMac to use Conroe and then set up another supply chain just for Conroe chips when they could just use Merom and Woodcrest solely, it seems to fulfill their line-up well and makes it simpler for logistics.

    I bet you a BT Might Mouse we won't see a Conroe Mac in the next 4 months.

    Here in Brazil we have high taxes. Taxes are high and public services are of poor quality. The cost of labor is quite high, due to all the labor bureaucracy that punishes both employers and employees. The purpose of mounting the iPads here in Brazil is that they would not be able to pay some import taxes and enjoy some tax incentives that the Brazilian government grants to companies that assemble their products in national territory. Furthermore, we live in a fake democracy, in which the State is only concerned with lining their own pockets, leaving the needs of the Brazilian people in the last plan. That since 1500.

    Well, speak for yourself, because I beg to disagree by a LONG shot. Brazil has one of the cleanest and most modern democracies in this world, with flawless election systems and an absolutely open press and media, even IF people prefer to choose the "wrong" candidates.

    Despite all problems that may exist in certain areas, no Brazilian needs to accept this sort of inferiority complex anymore, especially considering the more than visible evolution of the country when compared to the 80s and 90s. We are no longer the "nation of the future"; so it's more than high time that Brazilians should understand that as much as any foreigner does.

    Are you serious? Maybe you're new here? Apple fans are 2 steps shy of being brainwashed cult members and its no secret to anyone that Apple's hype/marketing department is probably the strongest weapon in their arsenal. They are very adept at pushing their products.

    Pretty much can be said about Windows fans, Android fans or RIM fans. I love it when someone throws out the brainwashing argument.

    People I know switched to using Macs because they used the product and felt that it was easier to live with then Windows. Just last night my wife was telling me about how one of her co-wokers had bought a first generation iPad for their spouse. They loved it so much they ended up buying the second generation iPad. I guess they were brainwashed into buying the second iPad. User experience had nothing to do with it. The co-worker must have been lying about liking the product, they simply wanted to waste their hard earned money on another iPad because the Apple marketing machine told them to do so. Yes, advertising works thats why it exists. Present your product in an appealing way so that people will know about it, go check it out and possibily but it. There is a reason why Apple has a 14 day return/no stocking fee policy. Ever wondered why the Apple stores are always packed with people trying out the products before they buy it. It is more then wanting to own a "cool" product as you put it.

    Are Macs perfect, NO. I switched over to using Macs in 2001 because I felt Apple offered me a better user experience then the alternative. Part of that user experience is how the computers are put together, not looking like some chimp did the work. The other part was how I could unbox he computer, plug it in and I was up and running in a matter of minutes, network setup and all. There are other parts of the user experience like the customer support and how seamless the hardware and software work together. Not to mention the included software at no extra cost. Best of all is not having to worry about the *possibility* of getting a virus or spyware. Notice how I used the word possibility.

    And lest I forget, there is the added benefit of how Mac products hold there value over time.

    On the last page of Part 12 I posted a setup that is located in my home office (mainly used by my wife). Different room.

    I decided to update my own office (kind of) with a brand spanking new iMac which is replacing my late 2009 Macbook Pro.

    Old Specs Macbook Pro 17":
    2.8 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4GB RAM
    500GB + 80GB SSD ( took it out before selling)
    Nvidia 9400M + 9600M

    New Specs iMac:
    2.93Ghz i7
    8GB RAM
    1TB Hard Drive + (still want my 80GB SSD inside this baby, but difficult to do so!)
    ATI Radeon HD 5750 1GB

    So far, so good.

    The speakers are also still there, but these are not shown in the picture.

    This is an old/new comparison.

    Mind the quality, but my iPhone 4 broke (will be replaced) on me so I used an old iPhone first generation.

    I kept the iPad 64Gb Wifi.

    Feedback is always welcome. :D

    And here I thought windows were only for looking out of :rolleyes:

    I like your idea more.

    Why is everyone so worked up over a new iPhone? The current phone still beats most smart-phones on the market today. Blah, Blah 4G Blah, Blah faster Blah Blah. Most don't even know what "4G" even is other then it is a larger number in front of the letter "G" and thats gotta make it FFAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!

    This is a developers conference and should not a hardware release party.Because we need something to geek out to come june.:D

    Anyone complaining about Apple's app approval process has clearly not developed for other mobile devices for the US Carriers. Even with its faults, the App Store is a walk in the park compared to Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile, or Verizon.

    1) All US carriers are very restrictive about what new apps and games they will carry. Even big companies like WB and Disney have had major apps and games turned down. The carrier decks have limited space.

    2) The signing/DRM and uploading process for all carriers can be very arcane, with unclear procedures, long delays for hearing back about the status of content, etc.

    3) US Carriers require an extensive amount of testing on all builds that they are going to sell. Most of the phones on Verizon, for example, require going through the BREW development process, which entails getting the game build for each handset tested by NSTL, at a cost of $700-1000 per build. Verizon does further testing after that, and neither BREW or Verizon offer a full test bed for network features.

    4) European carriers don't do their own testing -- they simply don't guarantee that games and apps will work. As a result, there is a large amount of piracy for apps in the European market, and because devices often aren't tied to a specific carrier/carrier storefront, it's often easier to find the games you want on the pirate sites than it is to buy them.

    5)US mobile carriers have very strict content guidelines for most mobile content, including ringtones and graphics. Each carrier has a different content management partner and infrastructure with different procedures.

    6)If you plan to submit your game to a US mobile carrier, each carrier will have a list of phones you are required to support, usually about 40 of their better sellers. While this generally includes modern top-of-the-line phones, it also will include some really horrible 4 year old handsets with no features. This has been a big reason for the lack of innovation on the carriers -- it's hard to launch a great new location-aware app if you are required to run it on phones without a GPS, and you can't easily launch a 3D game, since only about 6 or 7 phones will run it, and the other required phones won't.

    7)Apple's process puts the onus on the developer to properly test their app, with a minimum of testing on Apple's side. A full test from Apple would cost money, probably hundreds of dollars, and would pretty much eliminate the ability to offer 99 cent apps or free apps. The penalty you pay for insufficient testing is that it may take 3 weeks to get your bug fixes live on the store. Inconvenient, but poetic justice.

    8) The Danger Sidekick app store was a real nightmare. Danger prides itself on the fact that nobody submitting an app can get it approved in less than 3 passes. Most of the reasons they turn down apps have to do with how underpowered and buggy the Danger hardware is. Furthermore, in order to sell anything on that store, you have to cut a deal with Danger as well as the carrier offering the device.

    So, all said, the reason mobile developers are so excited about iPhone is that for all its faults, the App Store is a breath of fresh air compared to most carrier marketplaces. It's substantially less restrictive than phone carriers or any of the console manufacturers, the cost to get in is minimal, and the process is quite a bit more transparent.

    While the process is not perfect, much of the problems people are having are probably attributable to the sheer volume of submissions every week. They are processing thousands of apps during every 40-hour week with a finite staff; the figure I've heard is that the average app gets 6 minutes of review time, which certainly would account for the few flubs they've made.

    Considering the hoops Facebook has probably had to jump through for every other phone they support, Hewett just sounds like a whiner. And a web-based Facebook mobile client is even more of a hassle, take it from someone who had to ensure that a major entertainment company's mobile site worked properly on over 500 handsets. If facebook wants to be everywhere, they will pay a price, and the price on the App Store is pretty reasonable.
