Hahaha, when I only have non-heavy duty apps running, the one with the second highest CPU is Activity Monitor.

I know it's silly to expect the battery life to really be 7 hours but it's just so...

Battery life significantly reduced

So, I've had my unibody MacBook for nearly two months now and everything's great, only instead of the tasty 5-6 hours the battery lasted on full charge, in the last couple of days it lasts only 3...

I <3 Applecare

The phone support is amazing and I'm so glad I got the three-year plan (at a student price too - nice and reasonable), and would recommend it to any switcher. The phone support is invaluable,...

So I'm writing a keynote presentation and exporting it to powerpoint when I'm done, but it won't let me add a video that's got 2 compatible formats, i.e. keynote will only accept .mov files and...

iPhone will not charge / turn on / do anything

So, my iPhone 3g is driving me nuts. I've tried charging it on my computer, restarting the computer with it plugged in, turning the wall charger on and off, everything I can think of. But the phone...

Your favourite FLAC converter?

On Windows the FLAC converter I used (dbpoweramp) was awful - slow, clunky, memory-munching, the lot. Which is your favourite app for converting FLAC files to Apple Lossless?

I've gotta say, when apple said battery lasts for 7 hours, was that a ballpark figure or what? I got my MB the other day and the battery doesn't last longer than 3 hours, maybe 4.

Cheers, I'm doing what the Apple link said to do, i think it was changing the automatic path in itunes preferences that made it go sour. Trying all over again.

Vansmith, three out of four isn't bad at all. Nice one. FastStone looks pretty good but I think I'll only go for a d/l of that if I find I'm really missing the snipping tool (which, by the way, was...

Is the snipping tool. That's some nifty stuff right there. Does anything similar exist for the Mac?

Good shout, cheers. I'll think about it, but after parting with so much money for the MB itself, it'll have to wait. My external HD drive will keep me going for the mean time.

Sweet, the way the Apple website words it sounded like I needed to shell out however much it costs for a silly white thing I don't want. But I don't, excellent.
