  1. I am all in for supporting the MacCast and i thought maybe a way of supporting Adam, yet getting something back would be good. This is just a rough idea. I was thinking that you could make a paid subscription called, VIP or Premium MacGeek or Special MacGeek or anything else. Maybe you receive a green or any coloured bold name and access to change your user status etc. I think it would be a great idea to get a few more $ to Adam and to keep the MacCast running. I am 100% up for getting it if its ever brought in.

    MacBook Problems!!!

    Hi, Before i take my mac to the mac store i thought i would pass it on by here first. This morning i looked at my battery health and it had gone down to 80, randomly. Then, it said it was fully charged and i looked underneath and all the lights were on, but when i took out the adapter it turned off. When i try to run off battery when starting up, it starts up the HD and then like switchs off. I troubleshooted on Mac support, and it says get this update. But my mac is new, i got it a month ago and it says the first macbooks. I have no idea what is wrong, any tips or anything i should try?

    MacBook Problems!!!

    Apple UK Mac ads

    Well the only thing that isn't as good is that they arn't allowed to spike pc's due to UK laws. Hence why you never see the US ad's on TV in the UK. So now its not as funny.. they have to change the scripts a bit etc.

    Mac + Nintendo? Look!

    Ah, but i think that nintendo is finally " Growing up " It has brought out a more sophisticated product. Its not so plastic, its stylish, different and has sold 4 million consoles in 2 months!

    Mac + Nintendo? Look!

    I was browsing the wii website when i realised something. This may be just coincidence but, even so..! http://us.wii.com/viewer_rayman.jsp?vid=2 The loading thing is the same as the one when you start up your mac! Is it me or is Nintendo looking more and more like mac? The white, slick, design etc. Mmm..

    Poll: The paid subsciption idea.

    Yes, so put that in your mind when voting, just a general upgrade option! The extra podcast could be one of the features i guess. All down to Adam though!

    Idea! Paid subsciptions on the forum

    Yes well i think a fancy name and some other goodies would do me fine to buy an upgrade. I never said it should be mandatory, but a option. I will make a poll!

    Age Of Empires 3

    Ever since i was younger i have played AOE. A great strategy game and even better online. I recently bought the new 3rd one, and was sightly annoyed as 2 days later the expansion came out, but apart from that i was happy. I have it on PC ONLY at the moment as i bought it in GAME and they dont do mac games. Anyway it turns out that Ensemble Studios made a deal with MacSoft (The sort of PC-Mac game company) and now AOE3 is available on the Mac! Its a great game and 100% reccomended by me! Ever since i got it i spent hours on it! You need MINIMUM 1GB memory to play it.. and a decent graphics card.. With 2gb you wont ever have lag! LAG is the most annoying thing.. and its especially tedious watching each gun shot in slow motion. Anyway just a reccomendation/review! www.MacSoft.com

It has pictures and each one is getting closer to our time and then it goes to the future.. it just says the numbers underneath. The next one is going to be about World wars and then the one after is going to be about future wars.. looks like halo!

    Macworld Announcement Dreams - What is your dream?

    Apple Gaming Console - Pretty impossible? New iPod - Kinda likely New Themes for iWeb - Doubt it.. but it would be good! Thats what i will HOPE for.. but i doubt any of it will actually happen!
  22. I am getting my MacBook this xmas.. a few questions 1. After hearing a recent MacCast, Adam said something about the black MacBook´s having problems with fading. Is this a current issue with users and will apple cover it under the apple care? 2. If anyone knows of any issues/problems with the MacBook, please state them and say if they are covered or not. 3. I have been told that 2GB ram is what i will need to make my "gaming experiance". My question is.. is 1GB good enough to run games such as Age Of Empires and WoW? Thanks guys and i look forward to the replies. Regards, Bainzey

    My MacBook

    Ok to start off i would like to explain that i recieved my MacBook on the 25th of December 2006. Which means i have had it for a total of 3 days. Current Stats: Battery Cycles - 8 Battery Health - 100% Free Space - 82.63GB Used Space - 28.84GB Anywho off all the background stuff. My MacBook is a 120GB Space, 2GB Ram, Intel Core 2 Duo, Black, Spec I have been boring you for the past few months or however long about me getting it asking stupid questions etc. so some of you will know. Ok onto the more interesting stuff! Here are a few reviews of products in which i received with my MacBook. Incase 13inch sleeve - I received this in red due to there being no black in stock in the Apple store. Personally i prefer it.. its different yet still protects the macbook. Its quite thick.. and has got good padding this would be good for commuters or frequent flighers. Incase (Play on word ) You havent realised Apple seem to be supporting them alot, in the Apple Store they only had Incase products for sleeves and also i checked on the online store and they were advertised so i think Apple are definatly backing them up a bit. These are 30$ on the Online Apple Store. Akasa NoteBook Cooler - I got this from my Brother for christmas and i must admit it is VERY good. I have looked at others and they sort of lack what Akasa's version has. Its fans are rather strong (All powered by the USB port) The shape is perfect for the MacBook and it perches it perfectly on a desk, it seems to make your whole macbook area look tidy! MacBook - I love it.. its silent, the cooler is the only sound. Whenever i use anything which pushs my mac i switch the fans on to make sure it stays cool. I got Apple Care and i think i have installed it correctly. I have about 10 Widgets on my Dashboard. I have got Neo Office on it, Adium, Fireworks, FireFox, Skype, Normal MSN, Age of empires 3 and more! I have got about 8 Movies on it, about 100 songs so far from christmas CD's and about 30 photos (My whole family thought Photo Booth was amazing!) Also i am ALREADY thinking about getting a 250GB MyBook External hard drive.
