That doesn't mean that 425 million people are using the web interface.
You're arguing semantics. My point goes back to the fact that clearly there is no fundamental issue with the gmail web interface due to the sheer volume of obviously happy users.

He really isnt arguing semantics. I've used gmail for years purely via Mail.app. Web interface usage is a last resort (for me). We dont know what the usage spread is like with those 425 million users.

You're right. My statement wasn't entirely accurate. Let me fix it for you:

People will put up with a lot of crap in order to get something that they perceive is free or cheap, even when it isn't any cheaper once you factor in the real costs. Android's proof of that.


There. All better.

If things take that long something is definitely wrong. People here usually boot up the machine, get their coffee, talk to colleagues and then go to work. In that time the machine already booted up and in most cases users have even already logged into the machine. It takes a maximum of 10 minutes to boot up and login. The login part is what takes the longest.

In your case the problem is definitely somewhere else.

I totally agree regarding iCloud. At first, I was a skeptic of The Cloud back in early 2012. Back then, it wasn't even Apple that was hyping The Cloud. It was those other companies like Google and Microsoft throwing around that term as if they invented the concept first.

But now that I experienced first-hand how iCloud allows my (new) iMac to easily synch and seamlessly integrate with my iOS devices, I'm sold on the concept. Is it perfect? Of course not. iCloud has some known glitches that need to be worked out (a good example are the duplicate Notes entries, which I have already experienced). But so far, none of the iCloud problems I have seen or witnessed are deal-breakers. Regardless, I'm sold on the concept. It really does make things easier for us Mac users.

Would like to see a fix.

My Macbook Air on the other hand works flawlessly and they're both configured exactly the same. (clean 10.8 install).
With the latest OS X 10.8.3 (12D50) i finally have decent wifi again.

Mind you, i had to trash some preference files (com.apple.alf.plist) in order to get it to work properly.
It's location /Library/Preferences/

iCloud is amazing. Forget about SL, I can't even go back to Lion now that I started using iCloud for saving my Text Edit files. I usually type on my laptop when I'm out and when I get home, and sit on my Mac Pro, what I typed is already open in Text Edit. That's the kind of convenience I don't want to live without. I hope in the future that kind of sync spreads to many other apps.

Why is 12D50 still on the mac dev center now that 12D54 is also up there?

Usually apple delete previous builds when new ones go up - unless a public release is imminent.

Could it be that 12D54 will actually be the build for public release?

Recent printer driver updates on the software update page also indicate that public release might be soon.

The only OS X 10.8.3 beta or Safari has not crashed once. However, it is much consumes even more than Firefox. In addition, the Instant Search is disabled because my machine is not fast. On Chrome or Firefox, it works correctly.
Problems have been resolved, however crashes this version consumes more than the previous!

I never knew this, there were so many people complaining about a lack of graphics drivers, I assumed apple had neglected them.

I have a 2012 Mac Mini with 10.8.2 and a 2007 MBP with 10.6.8. I still like the ride MUCH better with 10.6.8 and don't plan on EVER updating my MBP to Lion or Mountain Lion. If it ain't broke..... [img]http://www.*******************/control/images/apple[/img]

QTKit isn't Carbon(kinda sorta), it is Cocoa and thus can be compiled in 64-bit, however it needs a 32 bit "helper" process to do a lot of the lifting. However the new 64-bit AV framework is completely 64 bit.

I was referring to the QTKitHelper . It still uses some carbon framework.

I actually do use Game Center! It is great for multiplayer games and achievements. Some games even let me sync my games on many computers, which I always loved about steam.
