. My new MacBook Pro came back from repairs in about a week with a new keyboard. Apparently initially Apple didn't want to replace it, but then the repair center convinced them that it was unusable. They say they are replacing quite a few new keyboards.Leopard.
The only serious issue that I have with Leopard is that every time I need to connect to an office file server (running MacOS X Server 10.4), it takes up to a couple of minutes to get the list of volumes. It's quite annoying, even if after the volume has been mounted it works smoothly (it might be a little slow considering that this should be a 54Mbit network, but I haven't done serious testing and most of the stuff I do goes trough the 2Mb internet connection which is the bottleneck anyway). I have started running TimeMachine and I feel very well backed up now (and the UI is amazing). Today I installed widemail
, which is finally replacing an utility I was using on Tiger to have a 3 column version of Mail.app.Gmail.
For the last couple of weeks I have been forwarding all my mail to a gmail account mapped to our evectors.com domain. It works very well, I love being able to access my mail from my iPod Touch via the web UI and from my phone via IMAP.iPod Touch
. I'm very happy with my iPod Touch, I use it all the time for web surfing while at home (it's Wikipedia in my poket). iPhones are not available in Italy yet, and most probably I will get one once they become available, but I must say that I feel I will be adding an activity I hate (phone) to one I love (surfing): one of the reasons I like my iPod is that it doesn't ring ;-) A slightly larger version, maybe less portable but with some more pixels, would be great tool.Fender FM 25 DSP
. It's my new cheap practice guitar amp (not that I do anything else but practicing with my guitar). It's average quality, but it's way faster to use than hooking everything up on my computer at home. So I'm playing a little bit more.
