Cook: iPad is a gateway drug which leads to harder Mac addiction

Dilbert1969

Mac Pro not available in Europe. New iMac can't have more memory fitted unless you get the 27" one. Mac Mini - an interesting idea - but when I upgraded a few years ago from my G4 Tower an iMac Refurb was much better value. Starting to think about a new laptop - current MacBook is starting to show it's age, but the MacBook Air screen is too small, and the MacBook Pro is too expensive...

Unhappy

We had a week of silent / unwanted almost abusive calls earlier this year. So I don't think there are any lessons learned.

Frack me! UK shale gas bonanza 'bigger than North Sea oil'

Dilbert1969

If we're going to frack can we at least follow Norway's lead and think about the future rather than immediate gains?

Apple iPad beats Amazon Kindle Fire in satisfaction survey

Umm psychological

Let's see you've paid $199 or you've paid $499 for something that does similar things.

You will be less likely to complain about the more expensive one - or excuse it some how when it doesn't quite do what you want. You have to justify the expense - even to yourself.

LG 3D TV ads misled buyers, judges watchdog

Dilbert1969

Not 3D - I dislike the term 3D, it's stereoscopic. If it was 3D I could move around and see different things, and you can't.

Dilbert1969

What about my scanner?

Canoscan LIDE 30 - Pretty sure the scan software is run through rosetta - and I got that when I moved to MacOSX

Audio Problems

I had problems with my update.

Ran over night no problem - but on restarting I had no internal audio devices available, and it took ages for the mouse buttons and key board to start working. I'm talking 10s of minutes.

Did a system restore from before the update from Time Machine, and then installed again with no problems - did have to reinstall safari for some reason after the system restore, as that had decided to stop working.

Dilbert1969

Been with Virgin Mobile for years

Now being pretty much screwed by the tariff changes.

Old virgin Pay by Direct Debit:

Call to landline and Virgin Mobile - up from 21p to 40p

Calls to other networks - up from 36p to 40p

Text to other Virgin phones - up from 4p to 15p

Text to other networks - up from 13p to 15p

I only send the odd txt message - if I spend £1 a month it's an expensive month.
