    Heya guys, today I got my first MacBook Pro and it is amazing, I really love it. :)

    I got some questions/problems, and I would really appreciate if you could help me.

    I didn't change anything except installing Skype, Skitch and few other applications.

    1. When accessing sites with https protocol (like Hootsuite, Skype etc.) I got this warning:


    When trying to log in with Tweetie to Twitter I also get an warning about an suspicious certificate.

    Tried different browsers, the problem continues.

    2. After the update I got Mac App Store. If I go to buy/install anything, I get this error:


    3. If you use your MBP constantly at home, is it connected to a power adapter the whole time, or when it's full you work without the adapter?

    1. Make sure the web address you typed matches the correct secure web address. If you have any doubts that the secure web address matches, do not enter sensitive information into the site. If you are sure that the secure web address matches, notify the webmaster of any sites in question that they should check their SSL certificate for problems.

    2. Check your system date/time and make sure that they match the current date/time. Make sure your time zone settings are correct for your computer and according to the address associated with your Apple ID. If the problem persists, take your MacBook Pro in for service and suggest that the CMOS battery be replaced. Although you might be tempted to replace this item yourself since it can be bought cheaply at most electronic stores, don't. It is not defined as a user serviceable part and Apple will know you serviced it and will void the warranty on the computer.

    3. Depends on how the computer is being used. For basic tasks, it can last fully charged for the whole day. For CPU intensive tasks, that's another story. If you are not sure, you might consider investing in this useful car charger.
