I won't get the big beach ball of doom. Rather, the computer just appears to be totally locked up for as long as 45 seconds at a time sometimes, probably averaging around 25.

So, after moving into a house with a few friends, we made the decision to set up a killer in-house file sharing system. Being the only Mac user in the house, I've had a few hiccups getting everything...

I have a 1st Gen 15" MacBook Pro I plan on replacing in the near future. As the current one still serves me just fine for the time being, I may wait until MWSF '08. Here's a list of realistic...

Currently, it is both impossible to have the phone in an unlocked state upon upgrading to 1.1.1, and there is no known way of downgrading. The hacking and development teams will be working a lot over...

We probably won't be seeing this in the MacBook Pros until, at the very earliest, January 2008 at MWSF. They'll probably be lumped in with a RAM/hard drive upgrade, and, if we're lucky, a Blu-ray...

Personally, you probably aren't going to find much use out of the extra vRAM as a web designer, unless you do some gaming on the side. I know OS X isn't a great gaming platform, but with Boot Camp...
