Posted in Apple on the July 21st, 2011

Alligator tried to get his hands on OS X Lion as soon as it was released yesterday but ran into a roadblock while installing OS X Lion on his MBP. After waiting an hour for the download to finish from the app store the installation finally started. After a couple of minutes the computer restarted and Alligator saw a progress bar saying 35 minutes remaining and was really excited to be in OS X Lion heaven soon.

MacBook Air Announced Today

Posted in Apple on the January 15th, 2008

Looks like the rumors were more than true. Jobs has announced the Macbook Air weighing in at just 3 pounds and as thick as a Hershey’s candy bar. Other announcements included new firmware for the iPhone and the iPod touch and the Time Capsule. The Time Capsule is just a external hard drive with wireless networking and LAN switch built in for use with Time Machine. One thing out of line was that Apple requires 10$ for the iPod Touch upgrade. Seems a little weird isn’t it?

seem to type anything in it. Same thing with the search box. Tried rebooting and uninstalling and reinstalling but doesn’t seem to help. Has anyone run into the same issue?

UPDATE (6/22/07): A new Safari beta 3.0.2 has been released by Apple which seems to have fixed this issue. You can either uninstall and download the new version from Apple’s website or use the Apple software updater to get the new beta.
