someone posted on another thread that 10.1.2 doesn't support card readers... but it does? i would be so happy... i have a sandisk cf reader, and it's so much easier to use than actually plugging the camera in!Originally posted by dsnyc
iPhoto is cool in combo with iTools and my Sandisk card reader
Oddly enough, while iPhoto can use them, they don't appear on the desktop like in OS 9.Originally posted by cleo

The Sandisk SmartMedia reader I have does appear on the desktop in 10.1.2 as soon as I put the card into it. (I downloaded an updated driver from 1/02.)Originally posted by GeeYouEye

I had the same problem with mine. I read that the delay was due to FDA inspection. As I recall it was about a 2 day delay, so yours should be on its way soon.Originally posted by getcalibrated
Fedex says my iMac is in Anchorage Alaska for the last two days because of the reason : "Regulatory Agency Delay". Does anyone know what this is? I mean if it's inspection requirements to thwart terrorism, that's cool with me...I just wonder what Regulatory Agency is causing the delay.

I agree it seems absurd, but I read in another string on MacRumors that the FDA inspects products containing lasers & the iMac has a laser in the superdrive.Originally posted by Gelfin

Ya, I was a PC convert too.. for years I hated Macs, because admittedly, when I started into the 16 bit world, Amiga was king to all those who had the pleasure of using them, they were far ahead of the Mac and PC in terms of hardware.. but the Mac and the PC had the applications, so the Amiga died.. after a couple years of reluctance I finally gave in and bought a PC. I was so depressed. It totally sucked. It crashed all the time. Blue Screen of Death.. all that.. lame lame lame! Then a friend showed me his new iMac.. I was so impressed, I ordered one right away! I'm not looking back and no regrets.. especially since the advent of OS X, I couldn't be happier as a student in Comp Sci and a programmer in C++ and web page design, I have all the tools and software I need, and the hardware is great too. The best of both worlds!
I read a trick for that, I used it myself, and it worked: standard prefs are that text smoothing is turned off for fonts 9 and smaller, change that to eight, and voila (system prefs, general, at the bottom select 8)Originally posted by Quark
I only have one problem, the Browser Fonts never look good. I have tried IE, Netscape and now OmniWeb(the best). All the fonts always look weird and unclear. When I turn off Anti-Aliasing, they look really blocky. When I turn it on, they look really fuzzy. I have to increase the font size to a really large size in order to make it look decent.
Am I alone in this? What am I doing wrong?
Other than that I love my new iMac!!
