OS X Lion: Serious Wi-Fi Disconnect Problems for Macs, And Solutions?

Hi everyone, i’m not as tech savvy as a lot of you are so i don’t really understand most of the tricks you’re using, but i JUST bought my new iMac today and the connection is dropping out like CRAZY, UGH, it’s terribly frustrating! (and i was so happy to get it out of the box too >.>)
ANYWAY. This computer CAME with Lion, so does that mean i’m doomed since i have no other install for it? i really need this to work, i saved up lots of money for this computer so i could have a decent machine to do my art on. Here’s hoping we see changes soon </3

OS X Lion: Serious Wi-Fi Disconnect Problems for Macs, And Solutions?

Well I have the lion upgrade and can no longer get on my WIFI at home.  My ipod touch and daughters iPad2 work just fine.  Am typing this on my $240.00 netbook and not the $2400 MBPrp.  Did not have this particular problem with the earlier MAC snow leopard OS but, did have some VPN issues which is why I switched.  I would return the whole deal if Apple does not improve the drivers soon.  I could get a faster refurbished ASUS i5 for $630 that would be faster and I bet the WIFI would work out the box.  Just read these forums.  I need this for work and cant beta test for these folks much longer.  Will try plugging in the ethernet into the air as a last gasp effort.  Not too happy.

Update on Apple's Magic Trackpad: Battery Life + As A Mouse Replacement

I bought my magic trackpad yesterday, and already switched 2 pairs of alkaline 1.5 v batteries. Is it hardware problem with trackpad and should apple replace it? After reenabling trackpad it says 13% battery, it’s enough for about 5 minutes and when it power off again.

Problems With Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Join The (Sizable?) Minority

I have a MacBook (2009 Intel version) with Snow Leopard and an older (2003) PowerBook G4 (857 MHz). Thinking of reverse engineering by putting the old Tiger OS in my MacBook. My older unit, maxed out with 640 mB of RAM is just a tad slower and never, ever locks up. RealPlayer is not compatible with my MacBook. Tried 3 clean re-installs after running disc utility from the original install disc (permissions and hard drive OK). I am wondering if there was an interim difference in the install discs? Anybody also think this?

OS X Lion: Serious Wi-Fi Disconnect Problems for Macs, And Solutions?

I too have had the problem since upgrading to Lion. I think I have just fixed it, but I could be a) lucky, or b) merely hopeful!

Under my wireless network name, it has always been ‘none’. I’ve now added the security protocol I am using in, and how it seems to work. No disconnection, and it automatically picks up my wireless network when it wakes up.

I’ll update should anything change.

Amazon's Kindle Fire: A Tweener Worth Your (And Apple's) Serious Consideration

The Kindle Fire is certainly an attractive option as a cheap iPad alternative. But I think the Nook Tablet is an even better choice since you can have all the benefits of a Fire but with better hardware. That is, you can get the Kindle eReader app, Prime Streaming app, and Amazon App Store app all on a Nook Tab pretty easily. At that point, the only thing the Fire has going for it is the $50 price difference.

Anyway, both are viable options. I have an iPhone and love it; I want an iPad but can’t afford it. I got a Nook Tab since it’s basically better than the Fire in every way as long as you’re willing to expend a little effort.

FTFA: “arguably the most facially ridiculous thing Steve Jobs said about 7” devices”

Since the Fire has no “chin,” I’m guessing this was meant to read “arguably the most *farcically* ridiculous thing Steve Jobs said about 7” devices” ;-)

Early Details On 2012's Redesigned iPad, iPhone + MacBook Pro

I echo comment #4, above. Was just about to pull the trigger on a current-gen Macbook Pro, but I will wait if the new version is coming in, say, the first half of 2012. Comments?

Amazon's Kindle Fire: A Tweener Worth Your (And Apple's) Serious Consideration

@8: Because it’s not an Achille’s heel. Neither the Kindle Fire nor the analogous B&N Nook Tablet (even with it’s so-called 16GB and SD slot) are meant as personal media players in the way you’re accustomed to. Both are intended to primarily stream content. Never mind that the number one capacity touch sold is 8GB, and until Apple stopped offering it, same for the iPhone. Most people just don’t have that much media no matter how inconceivable that may seem.

And your friends are going to be thrilled when they realize they can only put 1GB of their content on the main storage for the Nook Tablet. Hope they plan on taking advantage of that SD slot on day 1.

@Toy - good statement and I’m sure apple’d touch is not more than a child’s toy. Thanks Apple for saving my money!

Amazon's Kindle Fire: A Tweener Worth Your (And Apple's) Serious Consideration

Why no mention of the Fire’s great Achilles’ heel: storage? 8 GB (only 6 of which is user accessible) of non-upgradeable storage fills up mighty quick on a device destined to be filled with media and apps. Amazon’s exclusion of a SD slot, while probably a cost-cutting measure, is what is driving some of my friends to get a Nook instead.

Amazon's Kindle Fire: A Tweener Worth Your (And Apple's) Serious Consideration

The price, or more accurately, profit margin is Apple’s chief hurdle to meeting the competition, but one which Apple is going to have to grapple with given Amazon and B&N’s aggressive entries into the market place with these very capable media consumption devices. Amazon is up front with disambiguating Apple’s big lie: they don’t make much off of content, which is nonsense. Taking 30% of the sale price, at a cost of mere pennies in bandwidth, server space, and transactional fees, for billions in sales annually is not “not much”. Apple is making more off of app, book, music, and movie & television content sales than the GNP of numerous countries combined. Maybe it doesn’t add up to what they’re making with their exceptional profit margins on their hardware, but there comes a time you have to make choices about which is more viable in the long term: “one time” large net profits or repeating small net profits, and history has often favored the latter over the former.

Case in point: Although we looked at the Fire, considering our investment in Apple’s iOS ecosystem, the first gen Kindle didn’t have enough going for it but, and it’s not a little “but”, the reason why the Fire got passed on was not that we had so much Apple hardware, it’s that we have so much invested in content locked to the Apple devices. Multiple television seasons and hundreds of paid apps, that’s stuff that creates an investment in a platform, not the hardware itself, and that’s the real strength of a $200 consumption tablet like the Fire. Amazon is going to net customers brand new to these devices by the millions and Apple has nothing at all to offer them as an alternative. Amazon offers them, for less than $300, a full color device and the reasonably robust Prime service of TV, movies, and books, plus the original deal of fast, free shipping on physical good orders. Meanwhile, Apple can’t even hand you a comparable device for less than $500, and movies and television are all a-la-carte and NOT priced competitively (not necessarily Apple’s fault, but the consumer doesn’t care about that).

As a post script: I did, however, buy my first dedicated e-Reader, the new Kindle Touch, and I am very happy with it. Again, Apple offers nothing remotely comparable for the purpose or the price, and their eBook service is, to the best of my knowledge, the most restrictive in the world.

Yikes! iPod touch's Rear Camera Capped at 960x720 Stills!

Hey I hav an idea! Well since everyone is complaining about the crappy picture quality but saying the video quality is pretty good, then why not just take a video of the object u want to take a picture of, play it back then pause it, then press the home button & sleep/wake button at almost the same time, which takes a picture on the screen! Maybe it’ll work.. Also be happy we even have apple at all I mean they are the ones who invented the touch screen phone and the iPad and all that stuff! Don’t worry they will upgrade it sometime..I’m kinda disappointed too about the camera just tryin to stay positive tho :) hopefully they’ll upgrade soon I really wanted 1 for Christmas! Besides the camera, the iTouch is great!

Update on Apple's Magic Trackpad: Battery Life + As A Mouse Replacement

I have not had a single problem with my trackpad and my 27” iMac, I got the computer October 4th, I use it most of the day and i just got a warning that my battery was low (says 14%). Today is Nov. 21st. I think your problem is with rechargeable batteries. We use them at the Lodge facility that I host at and no brand of them seem to last too long in any device, be it computer mice or fire alarms.
