    No Apple Store Nearby? Here's My Suggestion:

    Yup, CompUSA is great. Apple Store is too far away for me, so it's nice to have CompUSA nearby. I bought my iMac there and recently when the SuperDrive died, I brought it there and they fixed it within a week.

    April 1st?

    I know the new Apple Store in the mall near me is opening April 1st (if it means anything).

    dropped my ipod and it has turned off

    Hey, you dropped it. It's your fault. They'd probably replace it anyways, but really it was your fault.

    iPod or PSP

    I have both also and I really like my iPod better. I rarely play games on the PSP (if I wanted to, I'd play Xbox or some other real console), but I'm always listening to music. I like to pass time listening to music rather than playing games. It's all a personal preference.

    how to have someone switch

    Why do you want him to switch? If everything on the Windows side (as innefficient as it is) works for him then let him be. Don't try to force him to spend some money on something he obviously doesn't want or need for that matter, considering it's basically a brand new Vaio, just because you think its better.

    Awesome tip! I never search for items in that folder anyways, so it's all good. Thanks!

    iMac 2.0Ghz Core Duo - A Review

    Dude... it's faster than a G5 for the same price. In a few months, most software will be universal binaries anyways. Doesn't get better than that.

    have a windows machine but want to show some mac pride?

    Oh god, why? No offense, but that looks terrible. Brushed metal everywhere :?, yuck. OSX is not just all about the look of it. I love the reliability and simplicity; something you could never recreate in Windows.

    Why I hate intel

    Who cares? As long as it's not slower than the PPC processors, then what's the problem? If you think Intel sucks, then you are gonna have a huge problem buying a new Mac when the time comes because Intel chips are the future chips for Apple.

    Review iSkin eVo3 for ipod with video.

    I understand that of course, but I was merely pointing out the bad sides of this product (you seem to have pointed out all the good points ) just to make a more complete review. Maybe I might have may have gone overboard, but more info in a review thread never hurts. As for the reponse, you really didn't have to since I wasn't putting any blame on you, just the iSkin company. You posted a great review, and I posted my own review also. Didn't mean to insult you.

    Review iSkin eVo3 for ipod with video.

    I bought this case after reading your review, don't like it at all though. Way too expensive for a piece of silicon. The Visor scratches pretty easily, so that silly acronym is pretty much BS. Also, the thing is huge. It adds a good .5 inch to the size of the iPod. They grip might be good, but I perfer the feel of a thin naked iPod. Also, the belt clip is absolute junk. The thing feels like it could break with every spin. It's made of very cheap plastic material. The silicon on the click wheel can get very annoying because of the extra traction. Scrolling through 3k songs with a rubber click wheel is very hard. And the hold switch becomes extremely useless. Biggest waste of $35 ever.

    iLife '06 and iWork '06 Out For Delivery

    I went out and bought my copy along with iwork from the Apple Store yesterday. Also bought a .Mac account with it also. Really loving the integration between the two.

    The specs page at intel.com seems to be broken, but I suspect it's 32 bit. THAT SUCKS! WHY ON EARTH WOULD THEY SWITCH FROM 64 BIT TO 32 BIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :x :x :x :x :x :-({|= :-({|= :-({|= :-({|= :-({|= :-& :-& :-& :-& :-& :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) Sound like your just mad because you bought a Mac and it was then updated to be better. It's alright, I bought an iMac last month. Kinda mad at the 2x speed upgrade but I like the fact that my Mac can run PowerPC apps without Rosetta.

    Cracked 5gen Ipod Screen

    Nooooo. Far from that. The Apple Store actually charges you a 10% restocking fee if the item is opened. If the product however is found to be defective by one of the guys at the Genius Bar then they give you an option of exchanging it for a new one or returning it for your money back without the restocking fee. But if it is damage not covered by warranty (which you already found it wasn't) then they won't do anything. Other stores may do it (I know Target allows you to return iPods without a restocking fee) but the Apple Store won't.
