Don't lie, your opinion goes down if someone even uses Apple products :poke: :mg:

:rofl:

Maybe in my younger days.  Anymore it's all just a portal to the interwebs anyway.

i'm really excited about iCloud.  I currently have 2 Macs, and separate iPods synced to each one because of hard drive limitation (my Macbook Air only contains a subset of my music).  I'm can't wait to have ONE library.

Oh their hardware is lovely.  Most "PC" laptops are such junk, which makes Windows look bad even though it has nothing to do with Windows.

If I were buying a laptop tomorrow, it'd be a MBP no doubt.  Fortunately we all have permanent loaner macbooks at work, so it's a non-issue for me.

I've had my MBA for a while now, it's hands down the best gadget I've ever owned.  I travel a lot, so the weight is perfect, and I don't need a DVD drive.

After lugging my MBP around at a conference I'm ready to plunk a dime down for a MBA.  Do you use SPSS on it by chance?  Just curious how slow it is.

we use SPSS 16 for Mac, it's ok except for the fact that it requires Java 1.5 and IBM will not upgrade it to work with newer versions of Java, so we had to implement a hack to get it to use 1.5.  We don't have budget right now to upgrade everyone to 19.

I don't do anything very intensive with it though, just generating charts/cross-tabs from a fairly large data file.

However, it seems like the download page is jammed.

Blergh, all it does is let you re-download past purchases.

I wonder if streaming is coming.  Because if not, that's just stupid.

here's a good article on Apple's move toward making the Mac a whole lot more like the iPad from a functionality stand-point (an OS that fades into the background, instant on/off, no need to ever reboot, etc.)  The downside is that older HW won't work, and if you are buying a Mac in the future, get one with a solid-state drive.

I've got an old ipod (2nd generation nano) that I've been using on my macbook for several years but have made the move to an HP for school and would have to reformat the ipod for a PC if I want to sync it up with the HP.  Is there a way I can do that?

It should be doable just by plugging it into the hp and doing it in iTunes.

I tried that, but it didn't like it.  I'll try it again.

Edit - It worked.  Wonder why it didn't last time.

do you have the contents save elsewhere? It may want to reformat the whole thing

When you connect it, you should have an option to "restore" which will reformat it and allow you to sync.  It's been a while though, so it may have changed.

Yeah, it was there when I did it this time.  Looks like we're good now.  Thanks!
