    OSX Mavericks? Anyone upgrade yet?

    all seems normal on my mid-2010 macbook pro so far. I like the safari 'power saver' feature that stops flash advertisements from playing unless you click on them.

    iOS 7 Discussion

    I feel that iOS 6 (while being 'outdated' by hipster-design-nut standards) at least felt cohesive, tight and fast. The experience was consistent across all applications as well and was one of the reasons I've always enjoyed iOS over android. (Though I'll admit my android experience is from many...

    How'd you get the wiring so neat? I can't figure out how to route it in my core 1000. Maybe I'm not trying hard enough...

    New build, SATA 6gb/s hard drive horrible read/write speeds

    Hah, indeed. Well the toshiba drive failed later in the day. Wouldn't book, clicks of death. Rubbish. I took the drive back and bought an SSD instead. Much happier. :)

    New build VERY slow - SATA HDD Read/Write issue?

    You are correct sir - I should have known it. The HDD refused to boot last night after a day of use. The drive in question was a 1TB SATAIII Toshiba DT01ACA100. Upon further research lots of other users reporting bad compatibility with Windows 7 and this drive, not to mention bad reliability...

    New build VERY slow - SATA HDD Read/Write issue?

    It was in ACHI mode as far as I know. Looking at the settings now, that's what it's set to. I'll try to dig up another HDD to test and see what happens. I bought the drive yesterday, hopefully a return is possible if it's a bad drive.

    New build VERY slow - SATA HDD Read/Write issue?

    So I just threw together my first 'new' build in a decade or so on a spur of the moment thing with a bunch of stuff I found on sale. (on a budget...) Nothing fancy, just hoping to play a few games I've missed over the last few years. Intel core i5 3470 3.4ghz MSI B75MA-P45 mATX mobo 8GB Corsair...

    Any Suggestions for an Ultra Rugged White 4S Case?

    I have the otter box. The rubber part wore out after a while and a few port covers ripped off. Check out the griffin survivor, seems a bit nice but it is also huge. https://store.griffintechnology.com/survivor

    Lion release?

    Nope, they took all the customizability of spaces away. I've been hitting Command-downarrow all day because I used to have my email in a space down there. Can't do that anymore. Only spaces to the right. I guess I can eventually get used to things - It's just frustrating!!!!
