Apple should buy shares in the rice industry. I've read of so many people sticking their wet Apple products in bags of the stuff.

But it's not just a power cord, it's the whole input system on the new Macbook, so (accidentally) flipping it out during use could have dire consequences to the work you're doing at the time?.

I think pigoo may be right.

I learned the hard way and had this issue with the old style Magsafe cord. I just patched it up with PVC electrical tape. Not pretty, but worked a treat. (Still does.)...

10.9 updates?

Hello all.

Now that Yosemite is the new OSX, will we still be getting updates on Mavericks?

I ask because I still run Final Cut Express as my main edit...

Oh no! What a dunce!

Thanks all. Easily sorted. (Of course)

If only I'd paid attention to anything that ever happened to me.

Nice.

Now, the same thing in reverse, please.

I haven't got a hard drive icon on my desktop and I would like to have one there.
How can I do this?

When I did mine, I just disconnected the battery (easy to do, once you've got the back off).

Don't know if it is essential, but I did it to play safe.

Probably so.

But, I can't see how they bend at all.
Isn't the front a piece of glass?
I'd have thought that would break/crack/snap before it bent?

Just wondering.
