Has anyone noticed whether 10.8.3 resolves "cannot save event to exchange server" issues in Calendar?

I might ditch VMWare Fusion 5 now if Bootcamp supports Windows 8.

Seems like most of my sandboxing issues have been fixed with a Safe Boot (reboot while keeping the Shift key down) - try it out yourself. After that, just reboot normally and see if it works.

I have gone through that before, and it doesn't fix anything permanently (neither for me nor for the many in Apple's forum). That's why I asked here whether 10.8.3 DOES fix the problem. It looks like no-one knows, though...

Been asking the same thing for ages now...no one has a clue or cares to answer this specific point.

No, your main problem is your closed mind. Try Chrome or Firefox. Chrome has been superior to Safari for at least the last 18 months (yes, even on Mac).

I'm not talking about the UI as much as the slow scrolling and heavy feel of the browser. It's not as snappy. And here, lemme toss the obnoxious eye roll back atcha.

You obviously haven't tried Chrome on Retina machines. It's nowhere near as fast as Safari. But sadly, I'll take the reliable website rendering of Chrome over the snappy-yet-flawed Safari any day.

I wasn't aware of this but i'm sure it's just a matter of time before this is corrected.

Have you tried the webkit nightly builds to see if your Safari issue is fixed there?

Chrome is horribly clunky and slow compared to Safari. Even Firefox feels much snappier. Yes, my Chrome is updated to the latest version.

I still can't let go of Safari. It just feels the best, even if I have to shut it down a few times a day in attempt to keep memory usage under control.

Odd. The ability to use the camera to enter iTunes gift cards is present in 10.8.2... I've used it. Unless this is specific to the Mac App store.... I've done it through iTunes.

Why do you want to use Windows 8? It's as bad as Vista if not worse. Of course, I don't care if you use Windows 8, so go ahead and use it. I just think it's as bad as Vista, which is also what many people think.

So... you hate Windows 8, I take it?

MS has done a pretty consistent 2-release cycle. Every other release sucks, every other release is great. Windows ME = garbage, Windows XP = good, Windows Vista = garbage, Windows 7 = good, Windows 8 = garbage, Windows 9... guess we'll see.

Windows XP was initially panned as garbage.

What is it with people and revising history?

Sure, initially it was crap. But it was one of - if not THEE - most successful operating system ever. Not saying I personally like it. You must be reading an old history book.
