    Macbook SMC Update 1.1

    It seems to have helped me. I think about two weeks ago, my MacBook could not go into sleep mode. If I did put it into sleep mode, when it started back up, it would just shut down and I would have to boot up by holding the power button. I applied the update and now I can put my MacBook into sleep mode. I've only had the update for a few hours as of now so I'm not exactly sure how well it is actually working.

    iPod linux

    i've used ipod-linux on my mini and i didn't see much benefit to it. it did include games like tetris but you have to reboot into linux mode to use it. also, while you are in linux mode you cannot listen to DRM'd songs. on the mini i think it just wastes space, but i hear that on the photo ipods and the nano it lets you play videos...

    Help Me Get A Free SpyMac Account

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone here would like to help me get a SpyMac account free for six months. I need to get 5 people to try SpyMac and then I can keep my SpyMac account free for 6 months. The problem is that I don't know anyone personally who would want to try it and I honestly don't even know many people who have a working computer. So if anyone here would like to try SpyMac then can you let me recommend you so we both get something out of it? For me to recommend you all you need to do is give me your e-mail address. You can give it to me through PM if you want me to recommend you. However, if no one feels comfortable giving me their e-mail address, then I understand. By the way, if you don't know what SpyMac is, its a service similar to .Mac and it is cheaper than .Mac. Someone wrote a testimonial about it here: http://forum.maccast.com/index.php?showtopic=3443 Thank you for reading through all that and for any help you may be willing to offer me.

    What kind of iPod do you have?

    All I have is a first gen iPod Mini and a broken first gen iPod Shuffle that got thrown away I think...

    Yahoo mailbox to Mail

    You can use Mail Forward X to do this, its a third party app. Its free: http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/14848 You can also use YMail, but that only checks your mail and doesn't let you send mail. You can get YMail at: http://macupdate.com/info.php/id/14940 I haven't personally tried either app since I don't have a yahoo account myself, but I've read reviews that say they work.

    So, recently, I found out about a web browser called Shirra. I decided to try it out because of its unique feature called tab expose, its like expose but for tabs in a window. Anyways, I should move on. I really like the browser and would be willing to completely switch to it if had an ad-blocking extension. Does anyone here know if Shirra has any ad-blocking plug-ins or if it supports plug-ins? And if Shirra does support plug-ins, how hard would it be to create an ad-blocking plug-in? Thank you to anyone who can give me any information on this. I've tried looking on the Shirra forums and the forums are a mess. I've also tried to contact the developers but I'm not sure they will answer me.

    Detour for Intel

    I don't know how to send system audio through iChat, but I know that in Adium you can send the currently playing song in iTunes using the AdiTunes AppleScript. This is the best I can do. Sorry if it doesn't help.

    MacBook shutdown problem

    I've started to have the random shutdown issue myself. It started for me a few days ago, but I'm not sure if the Macbook is the probem. See I updated to 10.4.8 and thats when the random shudowns stared. While I was using 10.4.7 I didn't have the random shutdown problem. Do you guys think that maybe 10.4.8 is the problem, or that its just a coincidence and I should call apple care?

    I have an IrDA (infrared) phone and I would like to sync it with my mac, however, I have not been able to find an IrDA adaptor that is compatible with the mac. Has anyone here had any luck with that? Thanks
  12. Hello there, I've had my macbook now for about 3 months now. I got it on June 10 as a birthday present and I haven't had many problems. I've had my macbook restart randomley once and it has not happened again. That is the only real problem I've had. I have not had the discoloration issues or the "whine" issue. However, I've found that the fan has gotten louder since I did the firmware update. Before the update I never heard the fan, now I can hear it start up every once in a while. This doesn't bother me because my macbook is still quieter than my old pc laptop. As far as heat goes, my macbook is hot enough for me not to use it on my lap often but I don't normally do that anyways. So overall, I've had a positive experience and I use my macbook as my primary computer.

    Casio Exilim-S770 .avi videos in Quicktime pro?

    i'm not sure about getting the actual file to play, but if you want you could use something like isquint to convert it to an mpeg4 video, which will play in quicktime
