    Apple Shopping 2007

    How far back does Apple generally go to allow a free upgrade on a OS? I got my Mac Pro... I want to say mid October. i guess thats too far, so i'm stuck buying it. Can you say... Student Discount via a friend of mine. Work only does 10% off i think, likely less.

    Apple's New Phone - Better Come Quick!

    I've been holding onto this damn Razr far too long. Currently on replacement Razr # 5. So if Apple does come out with one that I like... I'll be one of the first to order one. My girlfriend looks at me like i'm crazy, lol. But she understands and lets it go. She just wants a phone that doesn't...

    MacPro issues w/Rosetta?

    I've noticed that the Mac pro eats memory like it's nothing with Rosetta. I use a Dual G5 at work and the memory is about 50% gone, with only 2 gigs here. i have 3 gigs at home and the entire 3 will be tapped out, although a good chunk is inactive, the memory is still not free. Speed, it's not...

    Too Many Kernel Panics, Mac Pro

    In System Profiler there is a status for the memory too. This will tell you that the memory is not performing properly as well. I never knew about the hardware test, good find.

    Windows media player

    I need to check and see if it is native. I did download and install it a second time, I don't believe Quicktime came up under Rosetta. I'll check when i get home. Once it loads, playback is fine, but i mean it's a nice wait.

    Windows media player

    Flip4mac would be great if it didn't take so long for the video to open. i noticed a delay on my Mac Pro. I thought it was an issue on my G4 due to processor speed, but the mac Pro ruled that out. So i still use the Windows Media Player and MPlayer. Mainly because they open much faster.

    Mac Pro Loud SuperDrive [Video inside]

    So I go, and... nothing they can do. Looked at a display model, it did the same thing. Makes no sense. How can you claim this is a super low noise producing machine, acoustic my ass.

    Mac Pro Loud SuperDrive [Video inside]

    Well i suggest they swap it with a Pioneer, not this Sony crap. The pioneer superdrive in my g4 is silent as hell. The one at work is silent too. I won't even use the thing, but it's more about what i paid for. i paid for something better than that. What is the repair process? i have...

    Mac Pro Loud SuperDrive [Video inside]

    Well I finally went ahead and got a new system after months of... "Apple might release another one". I said ok, and paid cash for one. So I place a CD or DVD in, this thing gets LOUD. Sounds like a jet. Well you be the judge.... The system...

    help with isync

    This info should be in your address book or iCal. Take a look at your settings for syncing in iSync. I don't remember what settings are there since I don;t sync my cell to my computer at work. Check both the general Preferences and select the phone icon and see the settings. Add something to...

    g4 10.4.6 wont boot

    Happened to my G4 at home, mine hung on a blue screen, and i let it stand for a hour or two before I gave up. Had to reinstall the system and i slowly started losing hard drives/partitions one by one. Luckily I backup my data, just the pain of reinstalling.

    G5 Audio Pop

    So a coworker had the same issue, and he mentioned switching the vga connector to a DVI with a converter cable. And it solved the problem for us. Still testing to see, but so far, no problems at all. Both VGA LCDs are on different cards using a DVI converter.

    G5 Audio Pop

    Well i never found a solution, so I just live with it. My job doesn;t seem to care, so I guess I'm stuck with it until we swap up for the new intel desktops. I use a lot of audio apps at one time, although there have been times when i only had itunes running and it would start. Such as when the...
