BTW, that is a known defect in previous generation MacBooks and is covered by Apple even on notebooks out of warranty.

^^^I learned about that defect in an article on TUAW couple of months back but for some reason I ignored it even though I had the defect at the time of reading that article. Recently Milind tweeted that MacBook users won't complain about this defect, it is then I took it seriously. Confirmed with Milind and called the support guy, sent him the pics. The guys said it will be covered only under warranty.

Covered even on notebooks out of warranty is news for me. Such thing should be posted here so that other would benefit.

^ Hmm. I miss backlit keyboard in my MacBook. Otherwise its just awesome.

@Azeem. WhiteBook is 'notorious' for cracking after long usage. My cousin's WhiteBook cracked too, and he got it repaired despite being out of warranty in UK.
Its good thats its covered, it ought to. :)

This is a surprise for me. I never needed it until yesterday. In fact, it was not me but my room-mate. He wanted to format his Thumb Drive, but said that he didnt find the option. I too was amazed. I should at least be able to format it to HFS, though I am sure Apple has rights to FAT32..

So how do I format a USB connected Thumb Drive?

^^^Why not just just select all the items on you thumb drive and Cmd + delete them and then Empty Trash. Thats what I do all the time, who care what filesystem is on thumb drives.

I know that!

My friend's thumb-drive got corrupt and only a re-format can set things right. Actually I've wanted to do that myself with one of my memory cards. Now?

You gave been GXified
That's all the choices you got? :shock:

Wish you were on Windows. Try emulating TMPGEnc 4 express, see if that works on a Mac via crossover
 
Thanks but I'd prefer the latest version of (discontinued) VisualHub over that pieca crap.

And these are not the only options I have. I just don't know the right software.
