Preferences -> General -> Set home page

Switch to Chrome or Firefox though, they're both better.

Thanks. It isn't my computer. Mine blew up so I'm using the spare which is a iMac

I went for the 13" MBA with 4GB of RAM and the 250 GB SS drive.  It is slated to arrive Thursday.  Whoo hooo!!

first post with the new MBA.  Very snappy machine, feels as quick as my older MBP though the processor is slower.

My MacBook Pro has been having issues recently... For example, there are times when I simply can't play music while using the computer at the same time. It's not even the fact that processes are running, it's the physical action of typing messes up iTunes so it won't restart playing until I sit still for 30 seconds without moving (even if I'm not touching my laptop but getting off my bed or something). It also has an annoying tendency to freeze up, but that's more generic.

What? I'd noticed it before (for example if I pick up my laptop and start walking while music is playing, the music stops until I set it down for about 10 seconds), but it's gotten a lot worse recently.

OOOOOHhhh.  Yeah, I think they had a recall or something about that.  The motion sensor for the HDD can get screwy.

See if that helps you.  I'm pretty sure it is the SMS that is causing you issues.

Warranted or not, Apple products seem to hold their value well compared to other brands.  For instance, iPhone 4 = $420, a Samsung Galaxy S phone, which were introduced at the same time as iPhone 4 more or less, = $74.

after 1 day with the MacBook Air:

- love the size and weight, it seems almost as light as my iPad
- I don't see myself using the ipad much anymore
- the step down from an 15 to a 13" screen doesn't seem to matter much, I barely notice the missing space, the MBA makes my old MBP look like a behemoth.

There are two serious drawbacks
- plugging an external monitor in makes the fans go full speed, i'm not sure if this is a bug or not.  I'm checking into it.
- the battery is built into the machine, so you can't simply swap it out when it dies.  Rarely will this be an issue, but I used to carry a second battery when I flew cross country.  That's no longer an option
- i miss the back-lit keyboard

Overall, i'm pretty happy with the decision to go with a 13" MBA over a 15" MBP.

imref you dont' miss the space because the 13" MBA and the 15" MBP have the same native screen resolution.  Personally I prefer the 13" screen size myself.  I've had a 13" white macbook on loan from work for the last couple years and it's just the right size.

thanks, and it drives the external monitor at the same resolution as the MBP.  BTW, the fan speed issue went away as soon as the 30 GB data transfer from my old machine completed.

Apple's made no change to its App Store Guidlines, it's simply enforcing a rule that's been in them all along: apps that offer purchases elsewhere must support in-app purchases as well. “We have not changed our developer terms or guidelines," company spokesperson Trudy Miller told me. "We are now requiring that if an app offers customers the ability to purchase books outside of the app, that the same option is also available to customers from within the app with in-app purchase."
