    Hi folks!

    First post here, so be kind!

    Just unboxed my brand new MBP 15" and noticed an oddity?

    Keep in mind I'm a Mac virgin but under "Shared" in Finder I seem to have a volume called "thomson" that when I go into its settings says I'm signed in as a Guest and that its a PC Server?

    I'm connecting wirelessly through a BT Homehub which isn't connected to anything else at all!

    Anybody shine some light?

    I think BT HomeHubs are manufactured by Thomson. I'm guessing it's something to do with the modem/router's ability to host a NAS (network attached storage).

    It's kind of annoying that its just *there* but I guess I can put up with it if thats all it is?
