Damn you Apple!

I dunno what it is, but the once-infallible Apple is starting to give me issues.

You know, when Steve started getting sick… my 2006 iMac started experiencing issues. I found that the graphics card (integrated into the motherboard) was slowly dying. It lasted me a good year and a half before the really serious issues caused me to buy a new computer.

Last summer I got another iMac. Runs much faster and smoother. But when I upgraded to 10.7.5 a few days ago, suddenly, problems began to arise…


Now I get to install everything again… on the anniversary of Steve Job’s passing. Coincidence… or Conspiracy?

The spirit of Steve is haunting your stuff. :Q

You need to call an old Apple Genius and a young Apple Genius to exorcise your hardware.

Nasty virus? Perhaps this might help you. reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-57 … ontentBody

Maybe you have this Flashback virus.

On I have no anti-virus program I can recommend because I’m not even sure they have any for mac.

No…definitely the update caused it.

Besides… I’ve had the malware protection installed since even before I found out about it.


As of around 2:30am or so, I’d say upwards of 90% of everything has been restored.

Yeah… I’m gonna complain again about Apple.

Yes, Phil Schiller… the new iMac’s edge IS only 5 millimeters wide. Know why that is? Because you took out the disc drive.

Apple has wiped the optical drive from their new model iMacs (thankfully I got one last year)… and 2 more of their Macbook Pros.

Disc drives need to die. If you want to sideload software USB/SD is a far better option for hardware.

Some of us already have stuff ON discs we need to get at.

Rip them?

I was given advice to get a cheap CD drive because it would only be useful for installing the OS. Ended up getting a DVD burner for $20.

Yeah… I’m gonna do that to the 600 CDs and DVDs I have of backup storage, overnight, on a system that doesn’t have an optical drive. Good idea, Andrex. :slight_smile:

So this is the official apple rant thread? I want to know why I should pay $30-40 for legacy 30 pin support! I can understand not putting a Lightning to 30 pin adapter in every box because some might not need it HOWEVER when Antenna-Gate happened and they had to ship iPhone 4 bumpers to everyone they made sure only iPhone 4 is owners got them by releasing an app that only worked on iPhone 4’s. If I placed an order for a device with a lightnig port on legacy device with a 30pin connection I’m entitled to a goddamn free adapter.

Fuck you cunts who complained about Maps you totally took attention away from the real fucking problem I hope you drive your car into the river!

Also I hope you people making bootable USB thumb drives for your OS are using decent ones cuz a lot of those things are fucking garbage and will die randomly.

It’s what I’d do. Clear out some space.

And you’re process for getting those discs back into storage WITHOUT the optical drive would be… what exactly? Telepathy?


Use an old computer? I know you can’t get rid of anything spooie so you must have dozens around somewhere. :stuck_out_tongue:

You know, I was offered a 19" CRT yesterday and declined.
