How does that make me selfish? I did remove my own name as well, didn’t I? It just wasn’t very useful, what with people become active/inactive as and when they chose and with the number of users increasing at a snail’s pace. Also, it was a pain in the ass to try and keep the list updated with the latest details about the members all the time. So, yeah, I removed it, but just because that made sense to me, not because I have some selfish agenda. :)

my new mbp 15 is coming !!
will post pics when i get it
How much did you pay for it? And why are you buying another 15-inch MacBook Pro when you already own a 17-inch one?

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?
The option isn’t right there in the Finder itself so that you don’t leave the room for five minutes, only to return and see that some five-year-old kid in your house has reformatted the drive. It is pretty easily accomplished once you launch Disk Utility though (it’s in /Applications/Utilities and it’s easier to just launch it using Spotlight). Select the drive in the Disk Utility sidebar, choose the Erase tab, select the ‘MS-DOS (FAT)’ volume format, and hit Erase. That’s it. :)

Hey people tell me some good video converter for Mac OS X. VisualHub is closed now and FilmRedux is PITA! Temme something simplt to use.
VisualHub is the best. So what if development has been stopped? It’s still as good as it used to be. I’m sure you can find it on a thousand places on the Internet.

I have taken a look at the same video encoded with a single core processor and a dual core processor. Besides the decrease in speed the quality of the encoded video is improved with a 2 core processor.
Uh, no, that’s impossible. You must have changed some settings or used a different application or something.

Fair enough.

I figured it out, since I aint that five-year-old kid. :)
 
If any of you Macboys are still alive, please answer this question........Can I get Macs with customized configurations in India? There is no such option on Apple India site though. :(

^ Can't get enough of Apple, right? What are you thinking about, Mac Pro?

The rule of thumb with Apple products (as I've read at places) is that, the first one 'just works' and the more you get, the better it works.
One can't get the real Apple experience w/o getting a Mac, another Mac, an iPod, an iPhone, an Apple TV, an AEBS, a TC and Mobile Me. Steve Jobs is cunning!
 
Who needs a Mac Pro when you have such powerful iMacs with Radeon 4850. I'm thinking of a 24 incher 3.06Ghz one with ATI Radeon HD4850 and selling off my old one. Snow Leopard will make good use of a powerful GPU and DDR3 RAM.

Which means 2 groups of saints are coming? :confused:

@Sunny
I doubt that would be the best decision.. If you can afford then why not go for a Mac Pro and dump any other Windows Box that you kept for gaming?

That's something you should keep out from....

A Mac Pro is much more costlier that a normal gaming PC and what's the point when I'm gonna install only Windows on it? Maximum graphics a Mac Pro provides is ATI Radeon HD4870 512MB and for that cost I could easily build a PC with 2x the power. Pwned!
 
Not really. The other Macs like MacBooks,iMacs or Mac Mini provide innovative featuers but a Mac Pro is almost same as a PC when I'm gonna install only Windows on it. So, for me Mac Pro= PC with 2x the price.
 
I've got just one iPhone 3G..... The older one is biting dust in some miserable corner of the house :D
iPhone 3Gs will be the best phone ever! The new 13" MacBook Pro is totally worthless. Just an addition on 7 Hours battery life? Is that it?
