    Awake iMac

    My brand new 27in.iMac is waking by itself.It has a wireless keyboard & mouse which I have a sneaking suspicion might have something to do with the problem.Or maybe the Linksys router? Would any other Bluetooth device not on the immediate premises be contributing to this? This is strange, I...

    Real Techs?

    Are the folks portrayed in the ads to become a member of the support team actually a certifiable honest to goodness member of this forum or just a bunch of models sent over from some agency?

    Slipping under the Radar?

    Remembering When?

    I ask this to all the "grey beards" here, what was the reaction of folks back when Apple made processor changes before? Was there this the "sky is falling" kind of hysteria or what? The same for the switch to OS-X from 9 which I imagine generated alot of noise to!Even for the short time I've...

    When is a ....?

    When is a "newb" no longer considered a "newb"? Does one have to endure some ritual or ceremony conducted by ones peers to be able to climb further up the tree? Or is it just simply a matter of time?

    University to Hand Out iPods

    Just another incentive to go to university, don't you think?I would say it's a mighty fine favour of the school to be thinking like this.But it just makes sense to me at least :cool: But alas it's just an experiment which I'm sure will provide interesting results.They also had this story on the...
