  1. I paid a visit to the apple store in sydney today and had a very interesting chat with one of the apple genius at the genius bar. I was curious as to what it would take to actually work at the genius bar: Here's the gist of it: Tried: So what does it take to work at the genius bar? Genius: ~smirk~ all you need is this t-shirt Tried: I guess you get that question quite often ~wipes off laugh~ seriously how did you get the job Genius: Sometimes apple takes in people from outside, but more often than not, apple usually hires people internally. You may start off working in sales, and with exp and training, you apply for a position at the genius bar, go for the interviews, and if you're lucky, you get it. Tried: How long did it take you to be a genius then? Genius: I've been with apple for about a year now... Tried: What do you need to know? Genius: you need to know all things apple, old and new. Got to be familiar with first gen to latest gen products, software troubleshooting, know your way around new releases, look up knowledge base and so forth. Usually you'll meet people with tech backgrounds here at the genius bar. Most of the people who work at the Genius bar were friendly and approachable so that you wouldn't feel too dumb to ask anything. Thats my experience at least. For those who actually know more about the genius bar, or people who actually work there, please do post your experiences working for apple and what it takes for you to stand behind the bar... I'm sure i'm not the only one who wonders about that Tried PS: did you know the genius at the genius bar have their own business cards with a shiny silver apple on it!!

    New MacBook Pro's question

    would a dell of the same price be better better is relative, hardware wise you might get a better bang for buck but the fact that mac runs leopard should make it a winner. However, the new macbooks and macbook pros look sturdy and well built, much better looking than a dell definitely. Just think what you would be using it for. If its for gaming, maybe alienware might be a better choice but i would personally never trade a mac for any pc. if you run vista on a mac, the mac will run it at the same performance if not better Tried
  4. its peeling cause you often use your nail to push it in. I've seen many like that. I myself have had my mbp for over a year and always use my skin to push it in. Still looks brand new Tried

    blackborder around desktop on mbp?

    Have you checked apple's knowledge base why not try setting up a second account, log in and see if the problem persists. If it does, you might have to reinstall the os and hopefully it solves your problem. If not it might be hardware related. All the best and tell us how it turns out.

    Black Bluetooth Apple Keyboard

    I've thought of it before. Spray painting it wont really get you the desired result i suppose.

    Youtube error on all browsers safari/firefox

    Well flash didnt occur to me as the problem cause some videos do work, but many dont. i was scooping around and found on some forums that by adding the lines: &fmt=6 or &fmt=18 some videos might work because this allows you to play the full resolution of the video on youtube. Further reading indicated that youtube might have tweaked their video loading time counter and times out after a very short time. This makes sense as full res videos would logically have a longer time counter. My reading led me to think that Google web accelerator causes the same problem on pcs. I'm pretty sure there is no such thing installed for safari on mac right? anyone who knows java can help me out? I also recalled that i recently installed firefox 3, does anyone know if this has unexpectedly installed some plug in in the internet side of mac os that causes this problem? i have since zapped firefox but the problem still persists. Anyone please offer any heads up.. before i reformat... sigh Tried

    why should i mac?

    maybe why so many people are switching over to the mac side is because not everyone is a linux guru like yourself. Most people like to get things done instead of figuring out how things work (linux) or fixing stuff (windows) most of the time. Its the best hardware and software integration you'll see in a long while to come. others just love it cause its beautiful and cool Tried

    iPhone 3G

    really hoping that the telcoms wont rip off the masses here is aus.. Gizmodo's inaccurate leak brought on crazy flames by users about the prices, but rest assured optus has rectified the inaccurate info. i agree that with prepaid they will definitely jack up the prices, blaming it on taxes and all sorts of other stuff. I just hope they wont charge for the phone and tie us to a ridiculous cap plan though, without exclusivity to a certain carrier, there will be interesting competition to offer the best price for plan. Interesting to note also that apple took out the nice iphone dock from its included accessories. i'm not too happy about that but its not exactly a deal breaker anyway. with that said, i had hoped for a larger hd on the phone, user replaceable batts as well as a better camera esp one for video calls... video calls is just one of the many uses of 3G speeds. Imagine video blogging on the fly, audio and video diaries, podcasts... however so, i still feel that the lack of mms support is not very impressive on a 'touted' next gen phone. I am nt too sure if the camera on the new iphone supports video recording or not. Any1 has heads up on that?? if you own a 1st gen iphone or an ipod touch, check this out: www.touchpadpro.com cheers... awaiting good news down under! Tried
  25. i had the same problem so here's what i did: Hook up your mac to another mac under Target Disk Mode, navigate to /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Versions/A/Resources and replace Extras.rsrc and Extras2.rsrc with the ones found in your leopard installation CD or replace both the files above with the ones on the other mac which yours is connected to (file in the same directory) if you wanna be complete, you can replace the whole Resources folder, but in my experience that is not necessary. i tried doing in just in my finder without booting in target mood and my finder crashed and i could not log in after a reboot, so i would not try that if i were you hope this helps Tried
