OK, I figured it out. On my PC, the username is exactly the same that I used for the username on the PB. If I change my username on the PB, then it prompts the Windows PC for a password. It must be...

That's normal behavior? How incredibly insecure. I guess I didn't specifically mention that the Windows PC has full read/write access to the PB user's home folder, and it NEVER prompted for a...

So I guess mine just never got a departure scan from Shanghai; since my previous post, it has been tracked as arriving at and then leaving Alaska. I've got hope now for delivery on Friday.

Well, I just bit the bullet and ordered a Timbuk2 messenger (navy/silver/silver) as well as a Booq PowerSleeve 17, I'll try to remember to post a review & pics when I get them.

Well now I'm just confused, because *NOW* it's reverted to on or before 2/10. This kind of psychological warfare must be against some kind of treaty or convention!

ARGH! My order was processed on 2/5, and the ship date since then was "on or before 2/10." Now it's on or before 2/22! This is even more annoying because I had to do a wire transfer, so Mr. Jobs...

Get an ADC student developer account ($99, but free Tiger) and use that discount. I believe a stock 17" is $2159, and add another $90 for a Crucial 512MB stick. Or you could get a decked-out 15" for...

I ordered mine by through the ADC student discount on Thu 2/3, and today the wire transfer payment went through. It will ship by 2/10, but here's hoping Mr. Jobs get it out sooner than that :) BTO...

I'm just waiting for ADC to verify my student status to order. I'm getting the 17" BTO with the 80GB HD ($80 for 20GB = $4/GB which is crazy, it makes much more sense to put the $80 difference...
