Jul 13th 2007 1:23PM When replacing a PowerBook adapter of this type, I recommend the replacement adapter made by Newer Technology. It is much sturdier and better made than Apple's adapter. It is also larger and not as nice looking, but personally I don't care about that.
Also, the guy is lucky that he didn't become injured. It could have started a worse fire. If your power adapter (any power adapter) is malfunctioning, unplug it immediately and don't plug it in again. Get it replaced.
Jul 11th 2007 3:26PM @Someguy is correct. Steve Jobs worked at Atari - Woz worked at HP.
And in other news, Apple is doing a bit better than Atari these days.

Jul 5th 2007 10:53PM I worked on an engineering project to create a WiFi product (not a router, but something that worked with routers). We did testing with all of the popular WiFi routers at the time and we used a wireless protocol analyzer to tell exactly what was happening when things went wrong and figure out which unit was at fault.
The best stuff overall was NetGear.
The worst was D-Link. Linksys also would misbehave in ways that would cause stuff from other vendors to choke.
Apple's stuff always followed the spec, but wasn't always resilient when other units misbehaved. I'm thinking one particular case where the Apple stuff wouldn't join the network because the Linksys gear was sending out an incorrect signal at exactly the wrong time.
So, my vote is for NetGear. It was the best.
This info is maybe 2 years old, though.
Jul 3rd 2007 3:23PM I found activation to be quick and easy - I was up and running in 2 minutes.
I find the soft keyboard to be easier and faster to use than the keyboard on my Treo was.
As an iPod it is very good.
This is the first device I've seen that did mobile internet correctly. Mobile internet on my Treo was a joke, but I love using Safari on iPhone.
The email app works great for me.
I'm not understanding the complaints. I did find a few specific bugs and I've reported them to Apple.
My Rating: 9.5/10
May 16th 2007 2:49PM With regards to the person who indicated that running applications off of a disk image is dangerous - I'm not sure I can think of an obvious reason why this would be a problem. You mount the .dmg file - now you have another volume mounted (probably write protected) and you launch an app that is contained on it. I don't see why this should hurt anything.
With regards to removing a volume without ejecting it: it isn't all about caching. Most file systems use a balanced binary tree as their undlerlying data structure. When you eject the disk, the operating system puts the disk's tree back into the default state. Removing it without cleaning this up can corrupt the tree structure and cause your volume to be corrupted. If you don't properly eject the disk, you won't know when you are in the middle of a write operation and therefore you won't know when it is safe to remove the disk. In the old days (1980s) the disk drives had a busy light and you were told never to remove a disk when that light was on. During write operations it was on - the effect was that it flashed when the computer was accessing the disk.
May 7th 2007 4:51PM Huh! And I always throught McDonalds food was actually made from a special type of plastic polymer.
Mar 14th 2007 1:28PM It would be cooler if the tubing were "glow in the dark".
Feb 6th 2007 1:38PM I am OK with killing PBS. I hope they also end the war, kill NASA, the NEA, the Fed Dept. of Education, AmTrak, and most other govt programs and balance the budget and pay off the debt.
