    You can toggle a switch in the Music section in the Settings to only show songs that are downloaded to your device.

    Also, I just ordered a Thunderbolt display so that I can hook up my 13" MBA to when I get home. I also ordered the BookArc Air from Twelve South to put the MBA in while it's connected to the display. Has anyone had any experience with the BookArc. Worth the $40 or not?

    Since the death of the old ETS I acquired a nice and shiny 15.5 Inch Macbook Air.

    Lurve it.

I hammer down on my phone almost daily too so it sees a bunch of usage....anyone else running any applications from Cydia that improve battery life?

    I love my MacBook Pro. I never make big investments or purchases, this is probably my first one, like ever. And I have no buyer's remorse, which is why I never make big purchases in the first place. It's so user friendly and just awesome. Really glad I made the decision. So sick of every PC ever just crashing around me all the time.

    Thanks to the both of you. I don't plan on making this something for the rest of my life, but it's something for the time being, I'll be in college for at least the next two years, and I'll be making a bigger chunk of change in order to help me move out of my house. Plus, I'm pretty sure Best Buy (who currently signs my checks) is going to be bought out soon.

    I want an iPhone wallpaper similar to this one (in that it "interacts" with the display). Any suggestions?

    Or, more specifically, as my ex-husband, Satan, used to say:

    RTFM

    (Read The Fucking Manual)

    Go find the manual for your router.

    it just opens the functionality up.i don't have to have iTunes running to stream anything. also you can install plex and xbmc which allows you to stream all kinds of other formats. and then theres the general nerdery of customization...

    Pretty neat. I thought I heard of it being able to stream/play games etc from the ios store.. though I might have dreamt that. I'm kinda looking forward to see if Apple use it as an inroad to the home console market.

    I haven't been really keeping up with everything Mac recently. I've had two generations of mac pros however, with the last being my 2006 model. I am having a weird problem where when my mac turns off or goes to sleep, my monitor's backlight stays on but monitor 2's shuts off. So, instead of replacing the monitor, I am thinking it might just be time for a new computer. I have an iPad 2 so I am leaning more towards switching to an iMac and I don't really like working on laptops, anyway. I mainly do graphic design on it and sometimes video and photo editing as well.

    I love having dual monitors, but I think if I went with a 27" imac, that'd be plenty of desktop space for me. The 21.5" is appealing because of the price, but think in the long run, I would be happiest with the 27". I also have all 4 of the hard drive bays full of video/music/photos, etc. I think I would just pull those bays and get an external enclosure for them (I think they make that?)

    I also have an apple TV and a PS3 that I do a lot of streaming from. Someday I may want to pick up gaming again (one of the other reasons I'd like to switch, my current computer has a hard time processing even facebook games when there's a lot of graphics on screen, and had a lot of trouble with SC II when I tried the beta a while ago). I also don't think it's an HD video card.

    Otherwise, my gf does homework on my computer and I use it occasionally as well for web surfing.

    Given this info, does the iMac sound like the best choice? Also, should I wait to buy? How new was the latest iMac revamp? I understand Mountain Lion is coming, and I haven't even gotten around to getting Lion yet. Thanks in advance for any input!
