Apple :: Tweaks OS X 10.6.3 With Stability Update (10.6.3 V1.1)

Apr 13, 2010

Apple tweaks OS X 10.6.3 with stability update (10.6.3 v1.1)

Apple has released Mac OS X 10.6.3 v1.1, what is essentially an update to its recent update for Snow Leopard. It contains a typical round of stability, compatibility, and security fixes for Mac OS X, though apparently not enough to warrant a bump to 10.6.4.

Included in v1.1 of 10.6.3 are improvements to QuickTime X, OpenGL-based apps, coloring messages in Mail, and printing reliability. This update also resolves issues with opening files with some special characters in Rosetta apps, color problems with HD content in iMovie, recurring events in iCal when connected to an Exchange server, and it improves performance of Logic Pro 9 and Main Stage 2 under 64-bit mode. Apple digs into greater detail in its release notes.

Mac OS X 10.6.3 v1.1 weighs just over 785MB, but is strangely not available via Software Update. You can grab it as a Combo update from Apple's support site.

Is there a reason why it isn't available via Software update?

Apple :: Leopard Performance Tweaks

May 6, 2009

Being digging around with my macbook this evening, figuring out ways to spruce up hardware performances, in the form of buying/installing latest and greatest hardwares (hard drive, optical drive, "expensive" ram etc ...) and it dawned on me about tweaking it, just like with Windows.

Yahoo-ing/Google-ing brought me to this blog, from which I played with some suggestions. A nice surprise, not that I had any complaints with OS X performance.

There are a few suggestions here that I had not yet tried, may be later.

"
Finder Tweaks:

The first batch of speed boosts come from minimizing the Finderís system load.

1. Turn off Spotlight.

This will save an older system with a slower hard drive the pain of indexing. Even after the first index, Spotlight needs to continue updating its indexes. It also uses resources to cache searches and be ready for use...................

Apple :: MBP Did Software Update

Jun 14, 2009

I have a 3 year-old MBP 15" 2.4, 4gbram and I have not liked it from day one but I ran into some problems. Applecare has no idea what I should do so I am going to see what the experts say.

I downloaded and installed a firmware critical update for the fan functioning. It was for OS Tiger

Now my fans I never hear come on and the bottom near or above the battery and the top above the keyboard get hot. I would say hot because I touch it and it is amazing something does not burn. I would definitely think plastic if left there for a while it would start to bend.

I know the downloads are on apple/support but I will just damage it more. has anybody heard of this, did anybody download this update? It said what it was before it started downloaded it.

Apple :: Temperature Went Up - Update

May 11, 2009

it is indeed handy to have coolbook on the menu bar and it shows that at the time when temperature went up to 80~90; the cpu was running at full speed.

at the task i was running where i underclock down to even 800mhz things were fine, but it just shot up to 2.5k ghz for no reason.

and after locking at the range of 800-1600, the temperature did indeed dropped to a more desirable temperature of 60 but still sticked to the upper limit at 1600 w/out reason.

all temperatures stated are Celsius.
there weren't any cpu intensive tasks running either; once again, i turned off everything after seeing the temperature went up.
since it has nothing to do with the GPU(every unibody mac user love to say this, but no, not the gpu this time.

for those who didn't know what happened prior; my macbook pro loves heat and more so reaching 80~90 w/out reason. venting is clean enough there is no visible dust gathered, it had been used with a cooler at home so it wouldn't be the entrapment from desktop material either.

Apple :: MacBook Pro Update Discussion Thread

Mar 22, 2010

Is it possible that problems with implementing the new Core ix series processors in the 13 inch MBP be the cause of the hold up?

I know that Dell faced this problem with their XPS 13 line. There was a problem with the chassis and it could not be upgraded. So instead continuing to sell a laptop with no future, they just decided to scrap it altogether.

Is it possible that the 13 inch simply does not have enough room for the new processor + whatever type of graphics solution they want to add?

Apple :: Video Artifacts In Unibody After Nvidia Update 10.5.7

May 13, 2009

I updated to 10.5.7 and it runs quite well however I noticed a flaw of video flashing and I wanted to confirm this with others. In Stacks I use the Applications folder in list view. I have a long list of applications so I always have to scroll to go through all of them. When I use two finger scrolling to zip through them I see flashes of video artifacts while two finger scrolling. This only happens when you have enough apps in list view to require scrolling to see them all. For example, with no windows open I click the Applications folder and begin rapidly two finger scrolling through list view and I can see artifacts of the desktop flashing within the list view box. Anyone else notice this after the update? I have already reformatted and installed nothing but my basic apps and still see this.

Apple mentioned that they updated the Nvidia drivers for the unibody Macs. I have a Macbook Air.

Apple :: Curved Keys- Silently Update The Macbook Pro Keyboard

Feb 7, 2009

Someone over at the official Apple forums noticed that the description of the Macbook Pro 17" keys was different from the 15", then apple silently updated the wording on the 15" models too to match the description of the keys from the 17" models.

There is speculation, that since there have been some complaints about the Macbook Pro keyboard, Apple have silently updated it for the Macbook Pro 17" and for every Macbook Pro 15" manufactured since early to mid January onwards?

So I was wondering, does anyone here have a Macbook Pro 15" that was manufactured since mid January (not just store stock purchased since then), and are the keys "better" than the earlier model Macbook Pro's?

Sony :: Viao Update Site Not Recognising Update 4

Jun 2, 2009

I have a SONY VIAO VGN-SZ433N_B. I'm constantly reminded that there are new updates for my lap top, but when I try to install I am told 'VAIO Update 4.0 is required. VAIO Update (Ver. 4.0 and above) is required on your VAIO Notebook.'

So I installed Sony Update 4.0.0.08240 but still it isnt recognised. I have even tried to uninstall the previous Update module and then re install without success. I keep getting the same message, indicating that the Viao Update 4 I have isnt being recognised.
