Do you own an PowerMac G5 1.8Ghz Single (late 2004, 600Mhz FSB), and he freezes often after a uptime of 2 hours and more, if you play a Video with Quicktime in full-screen mode, a photo slideshow with Preview or iPhoto, since you run Mac OS X Tiger on it? Then read the following informations:
The affected users of the PowerMac G5 1.8Ghz Single in Germany have a Website for it. We explain in english the Freeze-Bug and the other known bugs of the PowerMac G5 1.8Ghz Single (late 2004, 600Mhz FSB).
We made also a list with Names and Serial-Numbers of affected users, and we would like to offer all of you to participate, and if you like, we add also your names and serial numbers to the list. It will show, that cannot be some individual cases only.
We plan also a special Fax Event, we send all a Fax with same Texts to Apple Ireland in Cork (for american citizens to Apple in Cupertino), with all the informations about the Freezing and the other bugs, with all Names and Serial Numbers. We would like to offer all of you, to participate the Fax Event too.
With this fax, we want to make Apple know, we will not hesitate to inform the public, the press and the consumer protection, if Apple does not offer an bugfix or an exchange of the bad Mac 1.8 SP to the concerned customers (for example a G5 dual processor Mac ).
Please have no fear, nobody except Apple, can assign the Names and Serial Numbers addresses to the real postal addresses of everyone, so your privacy is always secure. We in Germany think, we should use any useful chance, you too?
A few germans reported: Level2 Supporters said to them a few days ago, Apple works on a bugfix solution, which could be a Firmware Update or a Tiger bugfix, or combined. A possible release was assumed for the next 7-14 days, means middle of August. If the date is not kept, we plan the fax Event.
We will inform you about the special day!
