    difference between ibook and powerbook 12inch?

    I just moved from a 1.33 GHz iBook 768 RAM to a 1.5 GHz PowerBook with 1 GB RAM and the speed is a lot better on the PowerBook. A lot. Even before I upgraded the PowerBook's RAM, it was faster.

    How to tell if my harddrive has been copied

    Just to be safe, go through and change all your passwords now. In the future I would recommend you store passwords in an encrypted database. A good app is Wallet. I've also tried Steel. http://www.waterfallsw.com/wallet/ http://homepage.mac.com/gabrieledesimone/Steel/

    difference between ibook and powerbook 12inch?

    I think there are fewer bottlenecks in the PowerBooks which in turn makes them faster even with similar specs. Like, the frontside bus or somethin is faster on the PowerBook. I dunno. But they are faster that's for sure. Larger and faster hard drives is another thing... 40 GB at 4200 RPM versus 60 GB at 5600 RPM. That makes a difference. I also prefer the PowerBook keyboard, firmer and quieter.

    iPod Video Converter

    You should note that it's for Windows... this is a Mac forum. Very few Windows users around here.

    Black turns white

    Normally it should figure it out which icon to show automatically, but I keep seeing one particular iPod/Mac at work where the icon is incorrect. Can't figure it out.

    FTP Clients

    I second that. Transmit is the best by far.

    Frontrow on other Macs review

    Even on the new iMacs, Front Row is little more than a "terminal" to the other programs. It functions the same on any Mac as it does on the iMac, minus the remote of course. That said, it's nice, but it is very simple. Just a controller.

    Adding memory

    Your iMac has two RAM slots... assuming that the 256 is one 256 stick, not two 128 sticks, I would put a 512 stick in there for a total of 768. The max for your machine is 1 GB. Although considering the age of your iMac, I wouldn't be surprised if it was two 128 sticks.

    10.4.3

    The graphical effects seem snappier to me. For example, Expose, Dashboard ripple, minimizing, and so on. Anybody else notice this?

    Front Row on ANY Mac

    I put Front Row on my iBook just to try it out. I'm selling my iBook so I was about to wipe the HD anyways. It was neat and all, but very pointless without the remote. You can't really pirate the functionality of the remote, so as Apple introduces this on more systems or as an add-on accessory with a remote and a sensor, people will still buy it I think. Most people like me are just curious to see it on their system. By the way, I had a problem where after entering Front Row, my minimize buttons would be grayed out and non-functional until I relaunched all my apps. Watch out for that problem.

    Front Row on ANY Mac

    I get the impression that Apple isn't too concerned about this. It's obviously not the same without the remote. But yeah, it is probably illegal, even if you don't get in trouble from it.

    Backup

    If you have .Mac, you can use Backup 3 which is a great program... I wish you could buy it outright instead of only with .Mac
