    Another option would be to get a really nice printout of some of your illustration work and photograph various closeup details of it..

    Great idea. And include contact info as part of the image of course.

    This is a good time to sit down and write a harsh, but fair letter to the RAC Main Office to tell them what happened and how you will never go back to them for servicing. You will also never recommend them. That should hurt. Don't even say "Thank You" or "Sincerely" at the end of your letter. That ought to show them. Letters are always an effective way to get your point across.

    Unless they throw it out.

    Or just ask them what they would do if they went to get their windshield was replaced, and then bits of their car was falling off. If they stand there and don't know what to say, you know you got'em.

    They all have turboboost, but only the i7 BTOs have hyperthreading.

    The App Store is still giving me the "All Apps are up to date" message.
    What's up with that...?

    I'm still looking for a Javascript IDE. Today I learned that Netscape and ActiveState plan to ( co-develop a Javascript IDE based on ActiveState's Komodo ( product, but I learned from their product manager that they are still deciding what features it will include. So it doesn't sound imminent.

    If anyone knows of a Javascript IDE product that already exists, please let me know.

    I personally hope the new powerbooks are ready for release right now, but delayed because of the recently stopped dock strike. Maybe there is a big container ship sitting there just waiting to be unloaded with a whole bunch of new powerbooks, one with my name on it.

    Hey, I can hope right?

    The hard drive on my MacBookPro is completely full, so I moved 30GB of movie files to an external hard drive (dragged and dropped while holding whatever key makes the 'plus' go away). The files copied over and disappeared from my internal drive but the 30GB didn't open up. What did I do wrong?
    I emptied the trash (even though I shouldn't have to, right?) but still no space freed up...

    I find Snow Leopard to be very outdated after I have tried Lion. Love Mission Control and all the little fixes here and there.

    When I'm going to university after this summer I will leave my iMac back home so my mother can switch over to Mac and it will be much easier for her to switch to Lion rather than Snow Leopard. One important reason for that is that they have made it more similar to iOS.

    Great move by Apple.

    Hi guys,
    I am very close to purchasing a Mac Dev. Account. I would like to have direct access to the upcoming betas and Xcode. Do you guys see the Dev. Account as a 'rewarding' purchase? (if it is not a necessity for your income).

    Thank you :)

    Windows cannot be booted from external disks easily.

    Normally you just backup content, erase the drive, and format as GUID journaled volume.

    Any DDR3-1333 (PC10600), 1.5V, CL9 204-pin SO-DIMM will work. I ordered Micron (Crucial) since that's almost always what ships in your Mac anyways.

    There are many brilliant people in this forum that would be glad to help you but one thing I have learned is that they will NOT do your work for you. They will though help you.

    Why don't you list what you have done so far to try to accomplish what you are trying to do? If you have not started and don't know where to start learning, there is help for that too.

    You would do best to learn how to use the search function for this forum. With searching I have found answers to all my questions.

    Why don't you post your experiences so far with programming? Don't worry if you are just starting out. Searching will give you book titles, web sites (Apple developers site) and other sources of learning material.

    Good luck.

    So your probably wondering why I haven't been doing a bunch of iPhone case reviews. Well, I have been enjoying a lot of other technology and have gotten over the iPhone accessory headache for a few days now. I guess it would be best to start right back in where we left off with a review of a couple of cases from one of my favorite companies, ID America, the famous makers of the Gasket and the Skyline. Today, we will be taking a look at their newest editions to the store, the Ice and the Dry Ice. The Dry Ice and the Ice both feature a see thru polycarbonate shell, one being hazy, and one being crystal clear. Catch the full review after the jump!

    As always, let's take a quick dive into the way ID America packages their cases. Much like the Skyline & the Gasket, the Ice and the Dry Ice both arrived in a very stylish and simple Apple styled box. After taking a few minutes of ripping and clawing my way in, I was presented with both the Dry Ice & the Ice, both on separate packages, of course. In case you didn't know, both the Ice & the Dry Ice both include a set of front and back screen protectors, a very nice and soft purple microfiber cloth, and an application card. My installation and review of the shields can be found at the bottom of this article.

    Let's get onto actually installing the case on the phone, which wasn't the easiest in my experience. Like almost any other snap together style case, I simply set my iPhone 4 into the back of the case and snapped the front part of the case onto the back. This is, however, where a torrent of problems started to erupt, most of them I will get to later. First off, I was constantly having too realign the case so that the notches would line up correctly. And even when they were lined up correctly, they were nearly impossible to snap together, and required a very large amount of force, not a good start.

    Let's take a quick overview of the case. On the top of the case you will find two individual cutouts for the sleep/wake button and the audio jack. The sleep/wake button was extremely easy to press and I can guarantee that all headphone jacks will be compatible due to the fact that the cutout is so large. On the side of the case you will find one single cutout for the volume rockers and the vibrate switch. All these buttons were very easy to get to and I had no problems at all registering any of them. On the bottom of the case you will find one single cutout for the dock connector, the speaker, and the mic. The opening is large enough that most cables should fit and a few docks may be compatible, but not all. Lat but not least, you have a vey generous cutout for the camera and the flash which have had no problems whatsoever when it came to using the flash in low lit areas.

    All right, let me talk about what I like, and we can get to the negatives later. First off, I love the design that this case has going for it, its simple and elegant at the same time. Both the Dry Ice and the Ice look plain sexy with their see thru material and the Dry Ice looks absolutely stunning when viewed in direct daylight. The Dry Ice is also coupled with a very smooth silicone material on the outside that feels great in the hand. Also, since all the buttons are cutout fairly large, most third party accessories work just fine with the case, which outed a big fat smile on my face. No need to take the case off here folks, everything works and is compatible just fine. Then again, you won't be taking it off very often if at all. Why you ask? Read on for the answer.

    Short and simple, this case is literally impossible to remove from the iPhone 4. Once installed, I went through so much pain and suffering trying to get the case of the phone. Even the strongest forces of pulling was not nearly enough to get the case off. I just ended up damaging both the case and me in the end. I found the best way to get this off is too slide a fingernail in between the points where the case connects and pull upwards. Finally, after about ten minutes of bent and hurt fingernails, sore thumbs, and frustration, I was able to get the case off. As much as I hate to point out every negative aspect of a product, it's my job to be as unbiased as possible and point out what's good and bad about a product. Anyway, let's move on.

    This case also has some major watermarking issues. I installed the case without a backside screen protector, and while it wasn't exactly perfect (there were still some very tiny watermarks in the corner) it was enough to make me try on the back protector to see if that would help. Bad move, the backside protector made it about ten times worst. After a few minutes of putting the case on with the backside screen protector, watermarks would show up everywhere and would not go away at all. That's not very pretty for the sexy iPhone 4's back.

    Last but not least, this case does bubble the screen shield. Just like almost any other case that comes with protectors, I always install them to get the full affect. After putting on ID America's screen protector (the screen protectors are of very good quality by the way) and installing the case, bubbles started to show up everywhere, in the corners, sides, bottom, and front. I tried to smooth out some of the bubbles with a credit card, but alas, to no avail.

    Before we wrap up, I would like to do a quick write up of the screen protectors, one of my favorite add ons. Installation was very easy and if you would like to know how I go about installing my shields, you can refer to some of my past reviews. Everything lined up perfectly, the front camera, the speaker grill, and the home button cutout were right on the money. After a few days of use I did not notice any scratches or scuffs. Also, I lost no touch sensitivity and the screen was absolutely crystal clear. So far, the included screen protectors have been absolutely fantastic and are an amazing addition to the case since these could easily hold its own against some other high end companies like Power Support and SGP.

    Overall, I cannot recommend the Ice & Dry Ice. They have a plethora of problems and while they do look quite cool equipped on an iPhone 4, the major problems overpower the coolness and for me, make for what appears to be an unfinished product. It's too bad this case was released so early, as it had so much potential. If most of the issues can be worked out, these may have a fighting choice. For now, they just flat out aren't good. You can pick up the Dry Ice and the Ice for $19.99 on ID America's website. Click in the link to find out more.

    Does the Bluetooth keyboard still have 2 USB ports on it like the standard keyboards have?

    It is always unlocked, even after I've explicitly clicked the lock to lock it , after I re-open System Preferences it still remains unlocked.

    I do not do any type of sharing with any computer on my network, so why does that lock gets unlocked by it self?

    Im thinking it's normal and there;s nothing to worry about but how do I make the lock stay locked

    Also, I've noticed that after you've unlocked something if you don't click the lock to lock it .. it remains open, even after reboot. So, if I forget to lock the lock anyone with access to my computer(physically and over the internet) can change settings that require administrator privilege. Is there a way to rectify this? Or just remember to lock the lock? lol

    I caved and picked it up, too. :) My sense of rhythm is really bad. :o It might actually really help.

    can you strum with the acceleromter??

    "Strumming" in this version just means you tap down on one string and slide over to the adjacent string.

    Playing this on the iPad, and its awesome. First iOS touch-based music game that I find challenging and fun. Wouldn't want to play it on slower hardware or on a smaller screen though.

    On the new iPhone this game should be a dream. They are indeed relying on in-app purchasing. Once you get through their small amount of songs on all three levels you're going to want more I'd imagine.

    It works very well, speed-wise, on the iPhone 3GS. The only issue I have so far with the screen size is figuring out how to control it -- I think using my left thumb and a couple of fingers from the other hand works.

    I do think, ultimately, the in-app store will determine how the game does. Right now, I'm not super impressed with the music it's got, although I'm sure they'll add things. For $3 base, the game is really not bad...

    That's why record sales of Macs continued unabated, right?

    No, it's actually because the market for technology has been growing as a whole. Selling more than the previous fiscal year should be a habit, not a great feat for a tech company like Apple or Microsoft.

    Pkgbackup has two options for storing the backup info - your local address book or Dropbox. Dropbox has the advantage of being immune to having Apple tweak the data format of the address book entries which can corrupt your backup data.

    Well thats annoying.

    I normally display all my music by album, and iTunes used to display by Song, when i Show Duplicates.

    Somewhere along the updates to iTunes they stopped making this change and just sort via Albums.

    If i sortvia songs again it displays everything the right way, but when i leave Show Duplicates i have to re-sort it via Albums again.

    Ah well, at least it works.
