    VirtualBox and head scratching..

    After trying VMWare and Parallels and not getting acceptable performance in Vista, I switched to VirtualBox last year and have been very happy with it. I decided to see what the difference is running it via BootCamp, apart from Aero it wasn't any faster really so I did a full system restore via...

    iWeb and the MobileMe nag screen

    Everytime I start iWeb, since re-installing my Macbook I get a nag asking if I want to join MobileMe, I say no. But it comes up every single time I start it and I'm starting to get irritated. I cannot find anything about it here or via Google, does anyone else have this problem? How can I...

    My experience with Leopard on my new MacBook

    Well after a long happy relationship with my Mac mini G4 1.25, I eventually went mobile and got a 2nd hand iBook G4 800. It was a bit slower than my Mac mini, but I was generally happy and Tiger was quite snappy - all things considered. Then Apple dropped a bombshell on me, Leopard would only...

    Mac mini startup woes - Battery?

    Hi fellow Mac lovers Bear with me while I rattle this story off: Since this is a Mac and not some PC, I've only had cause to shutdown a few times this year, mainly when going away overnight on a trip (I mean that as in going somewhere, not dropping acid and watching the floor ripple)...

    Quicktime suddenly not working properly

    I do apologise if there is a known issue or fix here, I've tried searching for the last hour without joy..... I've also tried searching the net but I've found nothing specific to this type of problem. I'm working on a project using DV movies and my Mac has been working with these files...

    Tiger

    Catharsis is good for the soul, when we bottle up gripes they grow and then all manner of problems can arise, so I'm going to vent my rage.. ..this IS a rant, feel free to ignore it or disagree or join in. Am I the only one who is disappointed by Tiger? It seems like so much was promised but...

    Yet another Quicktime Problem

    Today when I switched my Mac on, it has suddenly stopped playing audio from AV recorded from my digital camcorder. Everything else plays fine, the video files play fine on VLC and mplayerX. It's been working without flaw right up until last night on Quicktime 7. I have repaired permissions...

    iPhoto question

    If this has been answered elsewhere go easy on me, I couldn't find it. I have a Mac mini and an external USB hard disk which has thousands of photos on it which I've taken over the years. The problem is iPhoto has copied all these to my Mac's startup disk and when I add new photos from my...

    Corrupt icons

    I've tried a searching for this but haven't found anything, if it's a known prob or a no-brainer, sorry. Occasionally I get corrupt icons, over time the corruption will change, restarting Finder cures it, but I'd like to know why it happens, I've included a screenshot to show what I mean...

    Red Box on Intel Mac

    While reading about the leaked OSX/x86 I noticed on a forum that someone was mentioning Red Box. All the Rhapsody stuff happened during the period I was focussed on Linux on x86 so I missed it all. My only knowledge is what I've read online. By what I've read, Rhapsody was intended for...
