    You morons, it's probably because of people like you that the PROPER serial numbers stopped working. Just typing crap in cause you want a free battery (or even changing your number so other people's stop working). I hope Apple catches on to you and charges you when you get your battery and they don't get the recalled one.

    who said we hit submit and are waiting for the box on our battery?

    I just tested it to see if it were true.

    Sorry that i am a moron. get a hold of yourself buddy.

    Like the commercial says, Macs are good for fun stuff, but PCs are for working.

    I shall (briefly) ponder the wisdom of your words when I'm putting in a 10-hour day tomorrow on the Mac.

    Fair thought - but aren't Apple a Global company with a global product? I would have thought anything local wouldn't impact on a worldwide strategy...but then again...

    Apple is primarily an American company and they know that the news cycle will be heavy with Election Results. They can wait until next week and get more bang for the same buck. Europe (Australia, Asia, etc. ) will be just as happy with a Nov. 14 release as Nov. 7.

    To be honest, I'm from Germany and I would never ever pay an extra cent for a product manufactured in the US. The caption "Made in the USA" just suggests "Don't buy me, I'm going to suck". All these products I bought that were made in the US were overpriced and mostly of far worse manufacturing quality than comparable products from Asia or Europe. Just my experience, not that I hate Americans or anything, I like their ideas, creativity, inspiration and stuff, but the rest is better done by other people.

    What about something made in Germany? ;)

    Not sure people would jump the gun on an Audi R8 had it been made in Asia! :D

    In other news, the Dell recall will cost Sony up to $430m. If all batteries are going at the same rate, Apple & Dell could cost Sony $619m. Add in what Sony will lose on its own machines...I'm guessing close to $1b. That would wipe out almost an entire year of profits (estimated at 130b Yen or $1,116,119,303). They may be screwed.

    Just become some hacky software to read chip temperatures broke doesn't mean you shouldn't install an important firmware update.

    Duuude, you're soooo cool (and quite a fibber).

    If you bother to read the previous stuff, you would have found out that its not the fact its reading the temps wrong, I could care less, its just the fact that my fans are being blasted @ 6K RPM on idle. I personally don't mind the heat, and would gladly sacrafice some silence for heat.

    And as a general rule, if stuff is working fine, don't mess with it, because you are asking for trouble.

    1. Big :apple:TV upgrade with bigger avaiable HD, 1080p output and PVR functionality, along with iTunes movie rentals.

    2. iPhone 2.0 with up to 32 GB flash and the first wave of official 3rd party apps (those developers that were seeded with the SDK early). 3G data is also a longshot.

    3. One more thing: MacBook Lite. Flash-based HD, external optical drive, low-power Penryn CPU, Intel integrated graphics, 10 hr battery life. In an aluminum case with multitouch interface. Apple's "best portable computer ever".

    1) Prejduice- BS. Plenty of successful blacks out there. The race card is officially invalid.

    Just because some are successful does not mean all can be. There is plenty of racism still around in most countries, and yes it does effect the less off more than those that are well off.

    2) Poverty- Yes, but why is the question? How is it that other races don't have such a huge poverty issue when living in western countries, but so many blacks can't get themselves out of it

    Because Blacks are not all the same. You cant lump people of one race all in one group and expect them to all to have the same results. There is a history in the US of racism that still effects many black Americans. Many black Americans can't afford to go to college for example. Poverty is a vicious cycle that preys on its self.

    3) Access to societal goods- How so? They're not exactly in concentration camps.

    Poverty - look up computer ownership by race. Look up access to books, education, nutritional information etc by race.

    I would prefer a retina display or twice the pixel resolution as the current iPad 2 over 3D.

    Has anyone else noticed that Sony is a horrible, horrible company?
    Ridiculous proprietary formats. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony#Proprietary_formats)
    Offensive ad campaigns. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony#Advertisements)
    Rootkits in their cd's. (http://news.com.com/Sonys+rootkit+fiasco/2009-1029_3-5961248.html)
    Blueray outrageous copy protection.
    Now exploding batteries?
    If I can help it, I will never knowingly buy a Sony product again.

    A good photographer can take brilliant photographs with a disposible camera, a bad photographer will still take rubbish photographs with a top end DSLR. :)

    Why are you comparing the users? A good comparison would be the same user (good or bad) using different cameras/mobiles to take photographs.

    I don't understand your argument.

    lol good instinct. It is a hoax and it has been discussed... ad nauseum. Someone from here went and gave 9to5 a "tip" to see if he'd post it, and he did, so we know to discount everything that ever comes up on that website. Have a good flight.

    sorry to push this further but can you link to where this person "from here went and gave 9to5 a tip to see if hed post it and he did"? The way this played out interests me.

    Thanks ahead of time.

    Does anyone know the answer to this?

    There's precious little details on what the actual exploit is, so no.. I don't think anyone here knows, yet.

    It could be cool if they implemented touch into iOS (or whatever). When I first heard about it, I was imagining they'd have some dashboard like space for the iOS apps. Not so sure I'd want to keep my arms and hands in the air for while I'm surfing, though. I'm really hoping that this rumor turns into some sort of cool implementation of AppleTV, taking it out of the hobby category. I just love the concept of AppleTV. I hope that architecture of watching TV wins out. I'd rather take Comcast out of the equation somehow, at least for the TV part.

    That reads rather oddly.

    Perhaps this can clear this up for you.

    Let's return to the article (http://mondediplo.com/2008/02/05military) from La Monde Diplomatique...

    In an important exegesis on Melman’s relevance to the current American economic situation, Thomas Woods writes: “According to the US Department of Defense, during the four decades from 1947 through 1987 it used (in 1982 dollars) $7.62 trillion in capital resources. In 1985, the Department of Commerce estimated the value of the nation’s plant and equipment, and infrastructure, at just over _$7.29 trillion… The amount spent over that period could have doubled the American capital stock or modernized and replaced its existing stock”

    The fact that we did not modernise or replace our capital assets is one of the main reasons why, by the turn of the 21st century, our manufacturing base had all but evaporated. Machine tools, an industry on which Melman was an authority, are a particularly important symptom. In November 1968, a five-year inventory disclosed “that 64% of the metalworking machine tools used in US industry were 10 years old or older. The age of this industrial equipment (drills, lathes, etc.) marks the United States’ machine tool stock as the oldest among all major industrial nations, and it marks the continuation of a deterioration process that began with the end of the second world war. This deterioration at the base of the industrial system certifies to the continuous debilitating and depleting effect that the military use of capital and research and development talent has had on American industry.”

    I believe this helps to explain what is meant by "diverts resources from productive uses, such as consumption and investment".

    The iTunes Store is SLLLLOOOOOWWWWW!!!!

    Dreadfully slow. It took all of a minute to open Safari, go to Macrumors, go to the iPod/iTunes discussion section, come to this thread, and get all the way up to the word "slow" in order for it to come up. :(

    "Album Artist" tag is supposed to be for albums that have songs that are 'performed' by multiple artists, not for albums that have songs from different artists.
    Yup, so for example you might have a track, "South Side" by Moby (featuring Gwen Stefani) and assign Album Artist as "Moby". It'll get files under Moby if you view the Album Artist tag, but it'll still find it if you search for Gwen Stefani.

    Another example is that I have "The Best of Geroge Harrison", where half the tracks are by "The Beatles", I'd like the Album Artist to be "George Harrison", but have the individual tracks also tagges as Beatles tracks.

    It is useful, but it's definitely not intended for "multiples" in the way you want it. (Me too).

    I just called two of my local Radio Shack's here in NYC and both said that I would be REQUIRED to purchase AppleCare AND a case if I wanted to buy an iPad 2 tomorrow morning. That is ******** and hopefully Apple won't allow it.

    Retail stores are free to do what they want as long as they don't advertise under the Apple MSRP. Don't like it? Don't buy....

    If it's going to have a huge screen why not make it have a satellite based navigation system too. That would be handy...

    As for the reader, sounds cool to me! :)
