    who wants a subpoena?
  1. Webkit already adds http:// to the beginning of each url if its not there. Stop wasting your time reinventing the wheel. And dont turn the wheel into a rectangle. k?
  2. Semthex's Propaganda

    If you hadnt realized, AppleTV folks are concerned with *gasp* hacking their AppleTV. Which by chance runs on x86 processors and is a variant of OS X. It's still osx86 hacking.
  3. InsanelyMac is for sale

    While an interesting read, telling someone on the internet to read the Federalist Papers is like telling them to read Locke's Two Treatises of Government. It makes you sound smart but does nothing useful. Ancient Athens survived and thrived with a pure Democratic government (See Athenian Democracy, minimum of 200 people, sometimes up to 6000 people for all decisions). The Founding Fathers realized they werent always right and left room for change. After all, they wanted the People to elect the House who would then elect the Senate who would then elect the President. Kinda similar to a British Parliamentary i believe. Just cause your a PoliSci major doesnt mean your the only one that can toss around big political words/idea's

    While eBay might be legal, it voids Apple's warentee agreement and they wont support the box . It can happen as often as it likes, Apple still wont support it Yup, breaks either the EULA or warentee agreement each time. Thing is, the average person isnt a geek and will get it wherever its cheapest - and if (company A) offers clones for $300 that 'run' and $100 for support from the company instead of Apple, then the person will get that instead of going to Apple. Fine, go port me wireless drivers so i get full support 100% for all my cards, so all my graphic cards - old and new - work perfectly, so i have SSE support, and so on. There's nowhere near the amount of support your saying exists. TPM chips have legitimate uses in cryptographic protocol's. You know, like the 'encrypt the entire hard drive' feature or for PGP, and so on. Likewise, EFI is a step forward from the BIOS, a 20+ year old piece of software that's outdated. 'Proprietery harddrive holders' ? That's BS as well, If you're apple-certified then you can buy a drive and stick it in your mac pro like any other computer. And 'apple-certification' is a decent idea as well - keeps the idiots from opening their computer, breaking something and not realizing it and going 'why wont this work?' The only limitation the AppleTV has is a 40gb hdd. Other then that, it's fine. As for the iPhone? It's main pitfall is it's price, not it's features. Yes, a C2D is mediocre. Xeon's are {censored} as well. The X1900 sucks, as does the Quattro FX 512. You're an idiot if you seriously think that. Laptop? GMA950 + Apple Logic Board + C2D + a stick of ram and a hard drive. It's like you buy a TV from Sony and a Universal remote from Zenith, why should Sony have to support you and help you set the remote up? Likewise, why should Zenith help you set up the tv the first time you turn it on?
  5. Is Steve hurting Apple?

    Which Steve? The Woz certainly isnt hurting Apple As for Jobs? He might be a flamboyant {censored}, but he knows what he's doing. Let him stay.
  6. Title pretty much sums it up - post what works and doesnt work with 10.4.8 + beta9 & SSE2.
  7. how detailed would each pdf be/what topics would be covered?
  8. It'd be interesting to read those articles
  9. Censorship In Schools

    Cant get around all filtering software. Look up Websense Enterprise for example. Oh, and to answer poll's, yes schools should filter the internet but not using whitelists that are overly restrictive. It works in my school. I know that because i havent figured out how to disable it yet, only bypassing it using VNC or an ssh tunnel.
  10. Leopard hacked!

    We're not. You are. now lets get back on topic
  11. Leopard hacked!

  12. Leopard hacked!

    But the servers are hosted by US companies. Apple has influence in other countries. International copyright law's exist as well.
  13. Leopard hacked!

    Leopard = New. Tiger = old. And saying Apple doesnt care is wrong - if they didnt care, osx86p and win2osx would never have been served DMCA notices. Anything to do with leopard right now will only do more harm then good. Examine it on your own in private if you wish, but posting findings publically is not a good idea.
  14. OSx86

    Unless ya bought it from Apple, its not apple hardware. If your Apple-Certified in hardware, the parts might be considered 'Apple Certified' If theres any parts that arent apple, its not a full Apple computer then. And they do have the right to decline you service/support if you change it around Oh, and opening your box without being hardware certified breaks your invalidates your warenty. You cant 'buy' a mac pro logic board anyway. Apple doesnt sell em.
  15. Making the boot CD

    Go look up goatsecx. Or current events.
