First, where did I say people don't care about privacy and where did I actually complain about anything? I pointed out why Google is not being sued by stating facts instead of subjective reasoning. I...

Actually, there is a good reason why Google is not being sued and it has nothing to do with headlines. Google does similar geodata collection for its own location-services database. However, it...

What you are showing there is your user account name. I would not advise changing it. Unless it's really bothering you in which case I'd advise creating a new user account with the new name you want....

Not even close to an iPad killer. QNX is an awesome operating system but they will never get the apps support to keep up. It could have been a real competitor if the software was there. It can't even...

C'mon guys, nasty. I don't think so. Pranks among friends are fine and this is not that bad. Are we so politically correct we can't have a little fun at our friend's expense. I always liked Punk'd....

Question, is there any reason why you can't use /usr/bin/gcc instead? It's gcc 4.2.

I switched to xcode 4 so I'll explain it with version 4. You can always upgrade. The process might be a little...

I always buy refurbished if I can find the specs I want. I bought my family's iMac refurbished and saved a few hundred dollars. When it came in it was basically brand new. Refurbs represent the best...

if you aren't having luck I'd try Homebrew to install gfortran. You will want to remove anything your package installer created under /usr/local. It's generally safe to do so since OS X doesn't use...

Yeah, this blows. My unlimited T-mobile plan is 30 bucks less than a comparable plan on ATT and Verizon. I sure hope the feds kill this merger. I'd like T-Mobile and Sprint to stick around.
