Eric, While I agree that it's always ideal for a company to include screwdrivers, the following statement (quoted from the review) still holds true:
While OWC normally includes any required tools with its products, the Envoy Pro comes without the necessary Torx T–5 screwdriver. The logic behind this decision is that those using the Envoy Pro will almost certainly have purchased an Aura Pro, which includes the Torx T–5 driver.As OWC has the only shipping third-party SSD for the rMBP, the only way anyone would ever purchase the Envoy is if they've already bought the Aura Pro SSD. It…
Jazz, So glad we could help you out! I'm relieved to hear that your data was recoverable.
This was amazing. Especially the pirates pleading for help on the forums: "Is there some way to avoid [going bankrupt due to piracy]? I mean can I research DRM or something?" Giggles.
Although the very early prerelease builds of what would become Chrome OS were actually built on Firefox, there isn’t currently an official way to use Mozilla’s browser on a Chromebook. However, there have been some breakthroughs in getting Linux installed on the Chromebooks, so if you’re willing to swap Chrome OS for a version of Linux, you can run Firefox and many other Linux apps that aren’t available natively.
Hi Paul, The link in the article (last paragraph) takes you to Apple's update page for the firmware. The description is nearly identical to that of the AirPort Utility update. It looks like the firmware works together with AirPort 6.2 to add the new features.
Hi Ben, Topher Kessler over at CNET put up some troubleshooting steps for solving issues related to the bug. Give those a shot and let us know if they work for you.
Ben, I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble. I've attempted to recreate your issue but I'm not experiencing the same problems. Reminders on 10.8.2 does crash when I enter the phrase, but the app reopens without issue and my entry with the phrase is gone. Are you creating the reminders in a local "On My Mac" category or via an iCloud account? If it's an iCloud account, has the entry been pushed to iCloud or another device and is it being synced back when you reopen Reminders, thus causing the crash again?
I think your second link should be http://appstore.com/startrekapp not http://startrek.com/startrekappThanks for catching that typo, DrShakagee. I’ve corrected the article.
Hi iJack, Indeed, the wording may have been a bit strong, and I was less concerned with preference files harming the computer and more concerned with wasted space. There have been several reports, such as this one from MacRumors, that these automated app removal tools sometimes miss certain files, including large files in the Application Support folder. I’ve used several over the years and, while it certainly doesn’t happen every time, on a handful of occasions the tools have left behind some large files that I wouldn’t have known about if I didn’t double check.
This article is number-fudging. In fact Apple is being crushed. The competition is between IOS vs Android not iphone vs samsung or some other maker.David, While the analysis between iOS and Android is a very important one, and one that we’ve covered numerous times, the analysis of individual phone vendors, which this article addresses, is also important. While an argument could be made that every Android hardware manufacturer benefits from the success of other Android hardware manufacturers (due to the creation of a robust ecosystem, for example), those phone vendors could not sustain themselves without selling an adequate number…
