  1. there’s also a Front Row update but it does NOT include the functionality to make the iPod Remote’s “menu” button work on the iPod. (obviously, that would take an iPod update to do, but I just wanted to point out the ass-hat way Apple designed that one.)

  2. All software apps, suites, etc…..have bugs and security issues no matter what anyone says!

    So far Apple has been lucky and no one has targeted the Mac platform yet. For the most part they are secure and the bugs aren’t known until they are fixed, but not all the time.

    Time will tell…..its been what 5 years and OS X is still free of that stuff, but its around the corner for them to start getting targeted.

    I hope not though let the hackers and stuff hit Microsoft! They deserve it!

  3. Johnny who said bugs don’t happen on a Mac, are you stupid? as to security same deal. Grow up, no system is perfect, but OSX sure beats the hell out of Windows in both repsects.

  4. Why is the standard that Mac OS is better than Windows OS.

    Shouldn’t the standard be that Mac’s OS should be as good as it could be?

    It’s not, and that’s the rub. I don’t care how bad Windows is. I do care how good Mac OS should be. And, it could be and should be better. Much better, than it is.

    Well since you know so much about developing complex, state-of-the-art operating systems Johnny, why don’t you engineer and market your own? Or are you just talking shit?

  6. QT Pro – OK

    I updated to 7.1 and my QT Pro licence is still intact. I think you would have to worry about losing your licence key if you were to upgrade to QT 8, for example. Otherwise, don’t worry.

  7. Hopefully 7.1 returns QuickTime’s playback speed to that of 6.5. I have been sorely disappointed in QuickTime 7’s playback. It seems to be isolated to very large files (ie. greater than 50-100 MB). With QuickTime 6.5, very large MPEG’s played flawlessly on my Cube (even in full screen). With 7.0, I get 1-2 frames per second – totally unacceptable! I hope 7.1 fixes this.
