    Firms preying on fear?

    secunia has been issuing advisory's to just about anything from x86 toilet seats to airplane board computers. It is a solid company. Just accept that now Apple has entered de unix arena, it WILL have it's fair share of exploits. In OS7/8/9, the hacks were mostly located in 3rd party apps (anyone...

    iBook Logic Board Issues Acknowledged!

    Way to go Apple ? Good to see something done finaly, but .... I beg to differ on the " way to go " part. it took (again) a lot of public pressure and threads with lawsuits to *force* apple into admitting a problem even exists. There are numerous website over the web detailing the problem...

    HELP I'm getting RUINED!

    if that time is in seconds, i.e. 100 seconds, it should be fine. Given the very short calls it still looks like login failures to me. You have a specified bill, does it include times ? were you unable to use internet at any time, and are at those times short calls listed ? or, if it is a...

    5% of all Windows installs crash 2 or more times a day?

    the 5% number is quite useless, since it seems to include both the OS and the applications. There are more then enough crapy OSX applications that can be crashed when pushed a little. A fine example is iMovie 3. While editing a full day with iMovie 2 never yielded crashes, importing long streams...

    Apple to sell movies online?

    "it's nog gonna happen?" of course it is gonna happen ! the only question is when. 5 years ago music over the net was almost unthinkable, now it is only logical. Much software is purchased and downloaded over the internet. Harddrives double in size at least each year, and the current cable...

    More support for Apple Int. customers!! (petition link)

    if you start itunes (i am in holland) the app itsself specificaly states that i can not buy music unless i have a billing address in the US. since the app's message is pretty much in my face every time i start itunes, and i HAVE an address of a friend in the states, i'd say i pretty much comply.
