    Ever since I had my software updated about a week ago, my macbook has been on the fritz - random shut downs, vertical stripes when trying to start up, I've had to reset the PRAM, all this junk. Now, I've noticed that my iChat won't show me half my buddies' away messages and when i log onto adium it logs on, then off, then on, then off again before finally just staying on. HELP!!

    Definitely take that thing back. It shouldn't be acting like that. :(

    The problems you are describing are not unlike many other user's problems. The macbooks have had some issues with things like randown shutdowns, inability to turn on, need to reset PRAM, etc. I definitely agree with Mad Jew. Find an apple store, and take in it. Your macbook has "issues" to put it lightly.
