*******live.pirillo**** - Several of us got together on Ventrilo just to chit chat. We ended up talking about Vista and XP, the differences, the expectations... and the opinions on the reality that is Vista.
*******live.pirillo**** - When Apple released the features of Leopard, some Mac users got their hoodies in a twist over iChat. They compared it to Windows Messenger... but couldn't be further from being correct.
*******live.pirillo**** - I bought the Family Pack for Leopard. Apple gives me licensing to install my copy of Leopard on up to five Macs. The thing is... the disc is the exact same as the one for ONE install. Apple TRUSTS me to install this as I say I will. They BELIEVE in me. How many others companies DO that?
*******live.pirillo**** - There is a new feature in Leopard that is available for every application and program on your Mac. This Help feature is so amazing, it will save you an incredible amount of time and trouble.
*******live.pirillo**** - The big buzz surrounding Leopard has been about the Time Machine feature. When enabled and properly configured, it will automatically and incrementally back up everything on your Mac.
*******live.pirillo**** - For better or for worse, Windows works differently than OS X - and it's no wonder that Windows-trained users face a small amount of frustration when they work inside of OS X. I've scribbled this list for the benefit of Windows folks who have switched, are switching, or are thinking of making the switch.
*******live.pirillo**** - I often see my parents working on their computer. They will open a task, then close it. Open another... then close it. Many people don't realize that you can have several tasks open at once, and easily switch between them.
*******live.pirillo**** - A community member wrote in to ask how to completely zero out data on his Mac before upgrading to Leopard. Fortunately, this feature is built right into OS X. There's no need to install anything to completely get rid of files and folders.
*******live.pirillo**** - For any of you going through the Boot Camp for OS X install for the first time, I wanted to show you something that is VERY very important in this process. Failure to do this step properly can result in OS X being completely messed up.
*******live.pirillo**** - After we made the front page on Digg for my recent article about the Top 100 Mac Apps, I promised that I would give away a USB stick. In order to win, you had to have Dugg the story, and be present in the chat room.
*******live.pirillo**** - I haven't installed Boot Camp since I used the Beta version on the Mac Mini. Ponzi needs to use Windows on her MacBook Pro, so she can run various applications. Using Boot Camp allows you to either boot your Mac like an actual Windows machine, or boot to OS X.
*******live.pirillo**** - I've been using the dual 30" monitors with my Vista machine, hooked up with Dual Link DVI cables. Someone in chat suggested I use one of them for the MacBook Pro. With these new MBP's, it's quite easy. Just plug in one of the DVI cables, and off you go... or so I thought.
