    i turned off Spotlight for 2 reasons 1. Memory useage Spotlight is cool and all but the sevice uses up a bit of ram. 2. serch mechonisems such as spotlight bother me in a tecnical leavle. keeping a cashe of keywords for documents takes a bit of drivespace. inorder to save space Spotlight uses a word discrimination system and deciding what words to cashe and wich not uses quight a fewe processor cycles. but i have admited i am not your typical mac user and spend 90% of my time in the command line

    a fewe MacBook questions

    I am going back to univeristy this fall and that means new Laptop! i know i whant eather a MacBook or a MacBookPro but i have a few questions for the MacBook(Pro) owners. 1. I have read alot of bad things about the MacBookPro reguarding heat and batery problems, however, most of the reports are form early adopters. for those who may have bought a MacBook Pro recently are you experanceing the ishues of Burn your hands hot MacBookPro and batery expantion? for the early adopters are these reports exagerated? 2. Batery life. in your experance how is the batery life on you MacBook or MacBookPro could it last long genugh for say note takeing for 2 lecture courses at 2 howers long each? 3. MacBook "Chicklet" keyboard can you decrobe the "feel" of this keyboard and would it get annoying for typing a major report on? or typeing quickly to keep up with a wordy professor? (i will admit memorys of the PC jr keyboard are in my head) 4. how is the Macbook as far as heat? and is the Case problems (dscoloration and pealing) overbloan? 5. to all in your humble oppinion wich isbetter for the student MacBook or MacBookPro? Thanks Much Chad

    a fewe MacBook questions

    the Overheating was due to Over application of termal compuund. in an attempt to useit to dampen fan noise. (apple always whats to sell quight computers) while it DID reduse noide the compound became an isnsolator. users who rebuilt the cooling systems of there MacBookPros with Lower amnts of High quality compound of the type used my PC overclockers found a reduction on temprature of 10 degrees.

    a fewe MacBook questions

    Thanks for the information so far I beleve it would help if i decribed how i was useing the Laptop. My Background Is i have used Linux dence 1998 was verry much anti-mac (sory guys but atleast i was not pro windows!) untill the time that MacOS 10.3 came around (Wow sexy desktop with BASH!) oggled a bit eventuly bopught a G4 Poermac 12" and a G4 PowerMac (both used) and loved them for about a year. untill they died. Built a AMD 64 box installed ubuntu and it was good. and became invalved with writing code on a fewe opensource projects. Upon dicovering i was accepted back into University the thought "i better get a mac becuse I will unfourtunitly need Monopolysoft Turd" after doing the reasurch at the Ushulal suspects I came to the MacCast for help (and as ushuly the MacCast audiance has not dissapointed me) My Major is software engnerring as such the laptop will see ocasional heavy loads while compileing software, and running paralells to boot Linux (to continue my OSS work) or Windows 2k. (I may be a Linux and Mac Biggot but i am not going to cut myself off from devlopment experance on the Monolpaly platform.) While I did show consern about typeing on the laptop in the Dorm i have a Nice 20" iMac (mactell) and i am useing a peice of software from Unix Land called unison to keep the files in sync. (note Unison is a UNIX app and requires X11 and feals rather "hackish" for the ushual Mac User who demands for UI beauty er beyond that of the 'ol UNIX Geek For info on the Macbook Discolouration and flakeing visit this site http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=2802 or this one wich is rather hard on apple's stance on the ishue http://www.appledefects.com/?p=15 appledefects.com is a rather scarry site read with your own horror!

    I think Longhorn Vista will be insanely great.

    No actuly it was Jacobus Spyker (A dutch Componey) in 1902 http://www.4x4abc.com/4WD101/who.html And the Most Innovative person in Automotive History has to be ether Pereston Tucker or Bucky Fuller Their Car the Dimaxion http://www.thirteen.org/bucky/car.html (Fuller) and the Tucker http://www.hfmgv.org/exhibits/showroom/194...948/tucker.html Were perhaps some of the most innovative product ever developed (Both ere flops) And Fyi am am not a Mac Bigot In fact the only reason why i use a Mac is it's UNIX Like I am a UNIX Bigot who has absolutly no love for Microsoft

    I think Longhorn Vista will be insanely great.

    what proof of what kind of product windows vista is going to be. look at todays Announcement they are atempting speed up devlopment by throwing more MANAGERS? at the problem. now we have a Development team that is suffering form creeping Manageritis. building a OS with creeping featureitis Now have look at the latest "Innovations" going into Vista IE 7 RSS support now look at a RSS feed in Safari Microsoft Gadgets Because Windows users deserve Widgets too Both announced Post Tiger Microsoft is Stealing Innovations from apple again Vista is going to be a Innovative Product
