    Is there going to be an iPhone forum

    Why not? Mash, you reading this old buddy?
  3. This latest release is ridiculous. I can't even boot up IE without it crashing. Coherence here I come!
  4. The CrossOver team has just released an update to its popular WINE-on-the-mac implementation. Along with a host of important fixes and updates, including better Half-Life 2 support, the new package boasts an experience in IE that should be entirely refreshing. With the Parallels team progressing at most alarming rate, the pressure has been intensifying for who will come out the champion in the world of Windows emulation. How befitting that the newest line of mac enthusiasts should decide who to crown the champion. Here I was thinking we bought our macs to run OS X on them What's new in this version: Modified handling of Mac Suitcase fonts so that they are available to more Windows applications. In particular, fonts should now work properly in Visio 2003. Altered menu generation so that Managed bottles produce usable menus. Extensively revised the documentation and online help. Cut/Copy/Paste keyboard shortcuts (Command-X,C,V) work better. Added several general printing fixes. Fixed several Half-Life 2 crashes. Improved support for non-American keyboards. Improved support for non-English versions of some applications. Adjusted the GUI in numerous small ways. After this version, it will no longer be necessary to quit the CrossOver CD Helper in order to overwrite CrossOver. Macs with integrated Intel graphics chips (MacBook, Mini) can run DirectX 8.x graphics. Fixed crashes and install failures due to libraries in /usr/local. Fixed crashes due to certain font files. Tool palette windows are now movable. Improved scroll-wheel responsiveness. Fixed Create Icon to preserve working directory and command arguments more reliably. Fixed handling of Caps Lock. Fixed the IE screen-flicker that appeared for pages with Flash content Many other improvements to IE behavior Improved handling of CD detection and ejection. Installers that require multiple CDs should now install more graciously. Some fixes to Outlook 2003 behavior, including printing fixes. Improved support for Equation Editor Corrected display of fonts in DirectX 8.x games, like Half-Life 2. Changes resolution in full-screen games should work better. Numerous other Direct3D improvements. Download available here.

  6. "improved graphic performance - up to 50% faster!" It seems with every new release Paralells announces the graphics speed has been boosted by 50%. Although I do perceive an increase in speed, it's difficult to comprehend how they could be boosting the speed by half with each new build.

    Adobe Announces Photoshop CS3 Beta

    if you're only using the 2-day trial, then does your original install of CS2 work or no?

    Adobe Announces Photoshop CS3 Beta

    those of you that have it working, are you using licensed copies of CS2 or pirated copies? I don't work for apple I'm just curious about the security checks in place.

    I spilt...coffee...on my...MBP :(

    lol..nice crack Zealot. Yeah my MBP is working again no worries for about a day now. I guess I should go count my blessings. My only worry is I was going to be bringing it in for an issue with the display that periodically springs up whenever I bring the computer out of suspend mode (the screen gets bars going top to bottom and is unresponsive). I hope the AppleCare folks don't try and cop out and say the problem was caused by the spill.

    I spilt...coffee...on my...MBP :(

    hmmm....well i'm on it right now and everything *seems* to be working hunky dory. My only concern is that something is shorting or on the fritz and I just don't know about it. My experience with electronics leads me to believe that if it's shorted I would know about it by now, but the PC isn't exhibiting any signs of ill effects to the logic board, display, or hard drive. Even the iSight now works. And the arrow keys.

    I spilt...coffee...on my...MBP :(

    I'm on it right now. Seems the iSight has been fritz. I'm going to leave it on for the night and we'll see where that takes us. Though I highly doubt the iSight shall ever work again. :'(
  12. I can't believe I was so careless. I was at starbucks, and wasn't even going to order a drink because my regular drink (white chocolate mocha no whip with a dash of raspberry) wasn't available. But I thought, what the hey, I need to stay up to study for finals, opted to get a mocha with raspberry instead and when the woman gave me my drink in the usual paper cup with a cover I detected some whipped cream and asked to have my drink made again. To which she obliged. And for which I requested a mug with no cover instead of a paper cup with a cover. Foolhardiness has a knack for finding me, and I left my MacBook Pro situated on top of my briefcase with naught but a hair’s drop away from tipping over. The usual "this will only take a sec," and fractions of a second later my machine had tipped over and dominoed onto some study books which tipped over the cup and painted my screen in mocha. Far more casually than aught befitting a man facing the loss of his one true love, I dashed over to grab a swab of napkins which frustratingly insisted on filtering out single file. Racing back I fought vigorously After a reboot my iSight’s light flickered on and off, then in different hues of green. Attempting to activate it in PhotoBooth initiated the camera but eventually crashed the application—leaving behind the dreaded indicator light in its wake. I wondered how I would explain this to my fiancé, she had grown oh so fond of the funky effects I could now use in iChat. Then just as quickly as I had painfully severed iSight functionality from my list of necessities, the display screen zapped away like a transition in a bad sci-fi movie. Not only had my MacBook Pro been wounded, it had been killed in action. I fought back the tears. Some questions still linger: I have AppleCare and spills are apparently not covered, but do they stick by this rule and can they truly tell when it’s happened? I also removed the RAM and Battery and unscrewed just enough casing to split open the sides for some ventilation. I’ve had a blow dryer pumping into the Logic Board for a good couple hours, but does a sudden shutdown mean it’s time to find out about proper burial rights for a laptop? I just don’t know. Why, oh why, cruel word, would you take away my nearest and dearest possession? FYI, I blogged about this here: suleiman.hadithuna.com

    lol..robotskip do you own a zune? I haven't read any of your other posts, but I'm starting to get the impression that you own a zune.
  14. The speed difference is remarkable really. These guys have really made strides with this latest release.
