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

    it really isnt the os, it is all of those task bar pieces of crap that people install. I take care of my parents typist and once i close all of the crap she has put on her computer, it works pretty decent. With them turned on, it crashes every two seconds.

    New BackUp=pissed at apple

    If you use an external cd/dvd burner, do not download the update to backup. They threw in "External drives are not supported" Send in feedback to apple so we can change this since i know i am not the only person with an external firewire drive. I think it is crappy that apple is taking...

    Make sure your webbrowser isnt displaying a cached page. If it still is, try to delete/remove everything instead of overwriting it with new templates. Or just put a password on it and then no one can get into it. Also, if none of that works, let them know of the bug in their system...

    iTunes, album art:

    find a program called Clutter. i think it is on sourceforge. It automatically downloads the art and gives you the option to export into itunes. it also lets you drag album covers to your desktop and you can play the album through itunes by clicking on the cd cover..its pretty cool. One...

    Apple just doesn't get it.

    you guys are forgetting that apples retain their vvalue.. Go to ebay and look up a cube. At least 700 at the final price. That computer is 5-6 years old. Find a pc that can retain its value like a mac. Im using a 1.5 year old powerbook and i have no complaints about speed. With a pc, i was...

    How many GB for the whole Bible?

    Easily. You could do voice down to a couple kb/s instead of 128kb streams. Radio is equivalent to 48kb or something close to that. I would say 1 gb -2gb max.

    Apple Music Store "Disappointment "

    I have burned cds as well. i think you have to use itunes to burn the cds though. Ugg is right, you can convert aac->mp3, but you do lose a lot of the quality. Heavy C: There is a price break when you download the whole album. $10 per album even if it has 20 songs on it. If the album...

    Disappointment with the ipod dock

    ipod through cars radio

    I saw a piece of hardware that allows you to play your ipod through your cars fm radio on apples site. How well does this thing work? I know it wont be cd quality, but is it decent? Would you buy one? More specifically, does anyone have it? I wish i bought a car cd player with a line in.

    Moving stuff from old G4 to new 12inch PowerBook

    try backup. Applications may be easier to reinstall from cds, but if it is documents and preferences, just use back up. I think you can restore everything onto a new computer.

    Time Travel

    Im a little rusty with this so bear with me. You guys need to read "Time Travel in Einsteins Universe" by J. Richard Gott. It covers the major types of time travel and the problems physicists have had with the mathematics. The book is a very good read that any level of physics/math...

    Wireless Mouse

    no offence, but if the mouse is straining your arm, you need to get away from the computer once in awhile. If you play games, you may not want one. When i played warcraft 3, it zapped the batteries much quicker. I have an intellimouse explorer. I like it alot. My mom has a kensington...
