I take apart the good, bad, and ugly of when you use software to heal hardware.
Went to an Apple Retail Store, and bought the cable that I have waited a very long time for. After over a year with a Thunderbolt-enabled MacBook Air, and the only FireWire options being 1) Target Disk Mode to another Mac or 2) A $999 Thunderbolt Hub Display… Apple finally started stocking the cable.

In my last article, I noted that Apple was providing undocumented case crack warranty extension for the 13-inch Unibody (Late 2009 & Late 2010) MacBook models. Specifically, Apple replaced the entire display on my two-plus-year-old machine when hairline cracks formed around the display hinges. Indeed, cracks have now formed around the 3, E, and D […]

Perian is a popular QuickTime Component, which adds several formats to QuickTime. This allows you to play everything from Divx to Flash Video inside of QuickTime, all with one simple tool. It’s great, and I wish Apple would incorporate as much of Perian as possible into QuickTime. However, there is one problem. Perian replaces Apple’s […]
