Wow, good for MWB. I always liked that company - glad to see they recognized that just porting their existing product wasn't going to endear them to the Mac market. Excellent move on their part,...

My first computer was a Commodore 64C and I mostly used it for playing games as well as a bit of BASIC programming and printing banners and such from Print Shop.

The problem isn't one of hardware. Modern Macs use commodity, x86 hardware with a custom EFI, which is pretty much the same thing you'll find on mainstream PCs. My guess would be Windows' nascent...

As I've said before, Apple can put a tie on a turd and sell a million of them. It is amazing what a little bit of savvy marketing can do.

Aside from the design, this is an absolutely terrible...

To be honest with you, the outcome of liquid damage is unpredictable. Yes, replacing the battery is a possible fix, but the likelihood is impossible to gauge.

Is that a MacBook Pro with Retina display, or the standard model? If the former, nothing to do but to take it to an Apple Store or an authorized Apple Service Provider and get a quote. Retina...

Totally agree. There is always room for improvement. I just don't think extending support to older machines hinders that in any way, shape, or form.

Nick, we probably aren't going to see eye-to-eye on this one, but I think your assessment misses the big picture that I was trying to explain. The current OS X release doesn't tax the CPU (at all),...

Call me crazy, but I'm of the opinion that an Operating System shouldn't tax your hardware at all. An OS should primarily be a springboard for your applications, that DO tax the hardware. It was...

To be quite honest, you are making this way more complicated than it has to be. Remove Kaspersky and any trace of it. Install K9 (it's a 2 minute thing), problem solved.

Chas, sometimes I think that if Apple put a bowtie on a turd, you'd be here to tell us how the smell won't bother most and how great of an invention it would be for those who enjoy feces.

Agreed. And they know that there is a certain segment of apologists (ahem) that will buy anything with an Apple logo on it. So, why not?
