    Network Attached Storage (NAS) freezes

    Should this thread be in network instead of peripherals? Does anyone have a suggestion? I would hate to not be able to use my NAS as a true network drive. :(

    Wanting to get my first mac!

    well, one thing that parents appreciate is their kids working to obtain a goal. if you have saved enough for the 650 mini, they may help you get the 800 tower. :D i was told in the apple store, though, that the mini is not a user serviceable machine under their rules. so by opening it up...

    Good Bye eMac?

    i have always liked my macs with a little more punch, hence my getting a G5 tower, so i have never understood the fascination with the eMacs. can't the mini do all the eMacs can? my girlfriend has one and she can do some processor intensive stuff, albeit a little more slowly than my machine.

    What to do with Mac Mini

    well, to be honest, people have different preferences. while i am a die hard mac guy, and will never give up the mac, maybe the windoze machine is your choice. i am also a designer, so i love everything that apple does, the thought that went into the packaging, the actual products, it is very...

    if you selected in itunes the option to organize your music folders, then all the music it uses is in one place. if not, you are going to have to go through each song and do a "get info" on it to deterine it's location. BUT, if you did select the organize into folders option for itunes, you...
