8/1     Where is the mac desktop going to go? It seems all the development
        in sw/hw now is for the iphone, imac.  2 finger Gestures won't work
        on the desktop.  What happened to the xserve line?
        \_ Two finger gestures DO work on the desktop.  Have you used a new
           Apple laptop lately...they support up to 5 finger gestures.
           \_ you're making my point even harder, do the 5 finger gestures

10/26   I'm considering upgrading from a 14" 1.33 GHz iBook G4 to a 2 GHz
        white MacBook. How much hotter will the MacBook be? And, is now a
        good time to buy a MacBook, or are there kinks that will be worked
        out in the next version?
        \_ With Apple just releasing new MBP with Merom CPUs, Macbook update
           may or may not be far away, so if you can wait, I'd suggest waiting

10/6    I love Macintosh, I've had a G4 and other Apple related products
        but I've returned my MacBook Pro v.1 for the following reasons:
        - 7 pounds!!!
        - When idling on single proc, it is very hot
        - When idling on single proc, it only runs 1.5 hour. Slightly more
          when the LCD is turned off for the entire 1.6 hour

9/28    What do you guys think the average lifespan of a laptop is these
        days? It doesn't matter the reason for a new machine, I'm just
        wondering approximately how soon should I'll need to get a new
        laptop if I bought one last year. Thanks Comrades.
        \_ Figure about 3 years, maybe 4.
        \_ Depends on what you are using it for.  For something like email

9/25    Urgent help. I have a MacBook Pro and compared to the predecessor
        G4 it is a total piece of shit and I regret getting it. At any
        rate, I upgraded from itunes 6 to itunes 7, and now itunes 7
        crashes every 5 minutes. I deleted it and tried to install itunes 6
        again, but now the itunes 6 GUI keeps saying "Custom Install
        on Mac HD, Package Name iTunes-- Skip". I can't make it install

2/28    So this new Intel Mac Mini... didn't the old one have better
        graphics and also cost less?
        \_ I think Apple is overcharging for it, since the new model is $100
           more from the last base priced model.  As components go down in
           price, so should the unit, or the specs should go up with a flat
           price.  However, keep in mind you do get 256MB more ram ($75),

1/15    I've got a mac G4 laptop and a dell box that I want to play kernel
        hacker  with, but I don't want to keep a bulky monitor around.  Is
        it possible to get a terminal connection from the dell box to the
        laptop?  The dell has USB, serial, PS/2, and VGA (no firewire).
        Any suggestions appreciate, thanks.
        \_ VNC over ethernet.

        So what happened to all those "G4 chips kick intel butt" folks?
        \_ 2 generations of cpus
           \_ They are also introducing a Intel iMac.  Does that mean the
              G5 will be phase out?  What I really want is a Intel MacMini.

11/21   I've noticed that the OS X and xterm etc are all
        slower than xterm / rxvt on Linux/x86. Even a 500 MHz P2 has
        quicker response than a 1.33 Ghz G4 when you are logged
        into a server via SSH. I'm wondering what could be the cause
        of this lag. Is it something that can be adjusted? I find the
        sluggishness the only think holding me back from using a Mac

7/21    Any recommendations for G4 Powerbook car charger? How about solar?
        You right wing crazies: do you want to overturn Mapp v. Ohio too
        and go back to Weeks v. US or Wolf v CO.
