  1. iLife ’06 should have been a free upgrade, it offers little.

    I think I’ll just stop upgrading the OS, all Apple can really do is start slowing the machine down to force me to eventually upgrade to one of their poor Intel boxes.

    I met another brainwashed Mac user in a bar, spouting off how “hip” he was with his black U2 iPod, being quite the typical ass.

    I had to shut him up by pulling out my fifth generation black iPod with video.

    He then left the bar in a storm.

    I was horrified that I was acting exactly the same way to others, so now I don’t mention Apple, Mac’s or iPods anymore in public less I look like a raving jesus freak or something.

  2. Don’t know what to tell you, dymwyn. I have a 3rd Gen, 40Gb, firewire-connected iPod and haven’t had any problems at all hooking into iTunes 6.0.2 OR 6.0.3. Notwithstanding the evidence of YOUR very real problem, I don’t believe the fault is Apple’s.

  3. MacDude,


    Use your iPod to show off pics of the family of something contructive and not show of your technology.

    Apple products are to make users productive and contructive not to show “technical arrogance” toward others.

    my 2 cents worth.

  4. yeah, ilife o6 is very buggy….sluggish. hopefully this will improve. ilife 06 was so slow (imovie in particular) that i was this || close to reinstalling ilife o5. but i will give these updates a try.

  5. First bug report….

    now when you publish to a folder… you get the spinning beach-ball of death. Rebooted twice, and fixed permissions…..

    Apple software release quality is going downhill….

    let the flames begin.

    MDN word is “former” as in I formerly used to be able to rely on Apple to release software that was completely beta tested before it hit the streets.

  6. With fingers crossed concerning my good fortune . . . .

    Dymwyn, do you have “DiskWarrior”? If so, have you run your iPod through it lately? (Could not live without that program, so maybe IT is the source of my luck!)

  7. Jim said: “now when you publish to a folder… you get the spinning beach-ball of death.”

    I just tried it on two different machines running 10.4.5 and the iWeb update; no beach balls. It works great!
