High percentage of Mac

At a meeting in Gothenburg today, four out of five people had MacBook Air. One had a PC. The PC did though have an IETF sticker on, so he is ok. ;-) Four out of five have MacBook Air […]

Most interesting MacWorld ever?

When Apple released System 7.0, that was a pretty cool MacWorld (in San Jose btw), but this upcoming MacWorld seems to be pretty cool as well. Rumors float around about various things, all of being interesting (to me):

  • Sub Notebook with flash drive, touch screen etc
  • Info on 3G iPhone
  • iTunes video rentals
  • iPhone developer tools On top of that we can of course think Office 2008 for mac will be released, and tons of Leopard/iPhone/iPod things. All of these available during spring 2008 and not directly in Jan 2008, but…knowing what is released is cool by itself. […]

  • Battery problems in MacBook Pro 15"

    I bought one of the first Intel based MacBook Pro that came out. This implied I got one of the batteries Apple have recalled. I found out some weird problems with the battery, and walked into the AppleStore in Palo Alto. After talking with support people there, they did some lookups and without asking any questions replaced the battery for me. About a week later, Apple officially started the recall program. About two weeks ago, the (new) battery started to act weird again. After running on battery for about 5 minutes the computer shuts off. And I mean really shuts off. Not into suspend mode. I do have the Battery Update 1.2 installed. Yesterday I went to Kullander & Kullander and talked about the problem. They thought it was another bad battery. I bought a new battery. I did the full charge, discharge cycle to calibrate the battery. It seems the new battery solved the problem. So I have now encountered two bad batteries. Not fun. The best thing that now happens is that I either get the money back for the battery I bought, or that I get a second good battery. The old suspicious one I left at Kullander & Kullander to be sent in for service. […]

    Demonstration madness…

    During the presentation of ENUM at Forskningsnettet meeting in Denmark, my extremely stable Powerbook 12″ just stopped moving. I was running a presentation in Keynote, and it just refused to do anything. Reboot was the solution, and this while answering questions from the audience. This was the second time this happened since I upgraded to MacOSX 10.4.3. Really weird. […]
