An Archive install fixed my AirPort WWAN Support Update problems

It wasn’t fun. However, my MacBook Pro is networked, again, after all of the WWAN support update 1.0 stability-related issues. My AirPort is rock solid, again. How? These are the steps I followed: Backed up my data — by the way, unlike PC, Mac overwrites old backups with new ones, deleting files from the backup […]

An academic look at BumRushTheCharts.com

When I first learned of BumRushTheCharts.com (BRtC), I had reservations about the idea. In particular, I wondered if juicing the iTunes charts for an independent artist for one day would actually make any difference – and if it would actually hurt the independent movement. Perhaps because of the community-centric excitement about the project, I decided […]

Apple says “Do an archive install”

Well, this is a frustrating experience. Despite the encouraging comments that suggest the AirPort Express update of March 8 has worked for many people, it did NOT fix my AirPort stability issues.  My wireless network does not restore itself when my Mac “wakes up” – although, I am able to restore the network by disabling […]

Has Apple’s 2007-002 fixed the AirPort problem?

Thanks to Nick for alerting me to the March 8 release of the AirPort Extreme Update 2007-002 by Apple. According the the notes, this update “contains an additional non-security fix for a compatibility issue when using certain third-party access points configured to use WEP”. If that includes WPA, the grief that 2007-001 caused me should […]

YouTube and Crime Stoppers

I usually only watch fun stuff so I tend to miss some of the amazing uses of YouTube. For example, the Hamilton Police Force has posted footage from a surveillance video camera on YouTube in the hopes that someone will be able to help them solve a crime.  While I admit that this may not […]

Help Apple solve the WWAN update problem

I followed up with Apple this morning on my trouble report on the WWAN update.  The technician said the Apple engineering is investigating a connection between the update and certain models of Intel Macs and wireless routers. You can help Apple troubleshoot and solve the problem by helping them collect as much relevant information as […]

Bum rush the charts – count me in

Update 070307: I have reconsidered my involvement in BRTC.  Look for an in-depth pre-analysis to be published on this site in the coming days. Christopher Penn of the Financial Aid Podcast is leading an initiative that may turn the entire music industry on its head. It’s called Bum Rush the Charts, and Chris summarizes it […]

Do not install the Apple WWAN Support 1.0 update

On February 19, my Mac started to prompt me to install the newly release WWAN support 1.0 update for OSX. Since the update referenced hardware I do not use, I dutifully ignored the request to apply it. Unfortunately, there was no way to select “permanently ignore”. Yesterday, the inevitable happened. I accidentally clicked on Install […]
