    Major issues with Apple UK customer service

    An email I just sent to Steve Jobs in a vain attempt to get something done about my iMac G5, which has spent more time in the repair centre now than it's been up and running... Just don't anyone pay for extended Apple Care. If your machine breaks down you may as well tie your hands behind your...

    Mac mini

    Guys guys guys! Watchu all complaining about?! More than 2 USB ports would be great, but look at it this way...I'm forced to use a Compaq PC at work - it's only 18 months old, yet it has just 2 USB ports and NO firewire whatsoever. It sucks! Now imagine you have a 3 year old PC (average...

    Weird font characters in OSX Mail & Safari

    Thanks very much for the help - couldn't work out the Safari image display issue in the ned, so I took the easy route and switched to Firefox for my default browser. I thought Safari was slick, but this is even quicker! P-M :)

    How To Stop Ip Access To Specific Folders

    Hi There I recently upgraded to an ADSL line when I got my G5 iMac, so I can have ftp access from wherever I am. I'd like to give some of my friends access to my Mac for file sharing purposes, but obviously I don't want them to be able to access the entire HD, just certain folders for music...

    Hi All - excuse the 'urgent' but I'm off to buy a new Lacie d2 120gb firewire drive in a couple of hours. Basically, by 30gb iBook has run out of space because of the sheer volume of music I have and the most cost-effective option is a new external drive. Question is, can I transfer all of...

    Steve Jobs on Longhorn

    Longhorn sounds like a major gamble to me - market dominance is one thing, but maintaining that position once your poorly-engineered product range comes to the end of its lifespan is a whole different ball game. I have to use a PC at work and this week the last few machines were upgraded to...

    Apple and NASA

    Well if you can run an inter-continental ballistic missile with a bunch of PlayStation 2's (remember that story?!) then you can probably run a space programme with a G5! Rip out all those big clunky desks with the cinema screen at mission control and swap 'em for a G5 with twin 24" flatscreens...
