    Belkin 802.11g Router

    I have to agree. I own this router as well and the setup was very simple. I get great range and speed and all in all it works like a charm. Great job Belkin!!!

    Soon......

    Congrats and welcome. I think you will definitely enjoy the new mac. I've had my MacBook for about a month now and I love it to death. I honestly dont know how I lived so long on a PC, but better late than never.

    RSS feed reader

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a free RSS feed reader on the mac. Preferably something not part of a web browser. I currently use sage as part of firefox, but I would like to try something better.
  7. With my macbook, I purchased a Belkin wireless G router. It works fine and I can get the signal clear across my house. However when I use a public access point, which also works fine, and then go back home to my encrypted network, the computer doesn't connect properly. the airport icon gets a good signal and appears to be working okay, but I can't access any websites or check email. After turning on and off the airport and restarting a few times, the computer connects and i can get online. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this a known issue? Or am I doing something wrong?

    Macbook SMC Update 1.1

    I applied the update. I never had the RSS problem, but installed anyways. All went okay but after the computer rebooted, I noticed spotlight didn't find anything. I tried a couple of ideas I found on the apple discussion forums to no avail. then after some voodoo and trial and error, I got it to work again. Weird huh?

    website developmet

    I'm trying to find a good web development tool for the mac. Preferably free. I'm looking to get into web development more and havent really messed around with it for a while. Can any of you web developers recommend anything? Also, if you guys know of some good resources, those would help too. thanks

    Convince me to buy a Macbook

    I've had my white macbook for about 2 weeks now and it's awesome. Youre going to love it. I'm not going to try to convince you to buy one because I think you're already convinced and just need some supporting information. As far as office, this is one of my annoyances with some people. Office is NOT native on intel, but ask yourself, "does that really matter?" How fast can you type in word? I've run office 2004 and it works fine for everyday use. Personally, I only use it for excel now. Try iWork. Its wonderful. Pages is a great word processor and Keynote simply wipes the floor with PowerPoint. And both of these programs read and export as Office formats. As for hooking your mac up to a projector, the most important thing is the connection. VGA, DVI, etc... Just be sure you get the right adapter and you'll be fine. I'd love to post a pic of me using my macbook, but I dont have a good pic right now. I'll have one soon. enjoy your new macbook

    DING! I just bought my first Mac

    Dude I totally agree. I constantly refreshed the fedex website. I followed the package all the way into town. An RSS feed of your shipments would be a great idea. When is your estimated delivery date? Welcome to the fold!

    Finally!!!

    With monolingual, i got a question. I know you said everything but even the Intel architecture? Just want to be 100% sure. I'd hate to have to reinstalll the os again.

    Finally!!!

    Thanks for all the replies! Im loving this thing. I've been updtating and copying over data since it arrived (approx. 9:30am CDT). Right now I'm copying over my itunes library (approx. 30 gigs) and realize that I need more space. I never knew that OS X takes up so much space! Oh well. When this is done, I'll still have 20 gigs to play with. I'm also toying with the thought of running itunes off an external drive. Other than that, I'm good. I do have a question for all: What key pieces of software should I download? I already have Senuti and handbrake. Anything else?

    Finally!!!

    Oh sweetness!!! About 5 minutes ago, the fedex guy delivered my brand new macbook. This thing is friggin sweet. White, 2.0, 80GB, 1GB ram. Awesome!!! I'm grabbing all the updates now and getting framiliar with the new interface. I've been a mac user for a while, but I've never owned one. I'm sure I'll be on here for tips and tricks so thanks all in advance. KICK ASS!
