What am I missing? You bought it new a few months ago, and they will be charging you $550 for the repair?

Yes, and the previous versions of Safari handled a proper input of a URL correctly.

For me, personally, it's a net loss!

Advantages of combined address and search window in Safari V6?

What are the advantages of the new combined search and address window in Safari V6? I can't think of any, but some disadvantages come to mind.

Yes, it is the symbols I wanted. That's why I gave the example of the Apple icon that I already know.

It seems that I will have to cut and paste to achieve say the command symbol, ie. ⌘.

How to type special characters?

I learned that option-shift-k produces the Apple logo . How do I produce the symbol on the "command" key? Same with the symbol used for "shift", "option" and "control".

OS X 10.7.3

Same situation here. Only stays disconnected for a few seconds, but it's irritating. The distance to the iMac from the mouse is only12-18 inches so I don't think the path is too long.

Hypothetical: If I were to skip 10.7, do you think it likely that I could go to, say, 10.8 or later without problems? Have 10.6.8 now.

Agree, Schweb. Nice to patronize s/w writers and developers, especially when they're local.

Seems that they have an app for every OS version.
