Yeah. Definitely grabbing the "air" for myself. I've been holding out since the iPad 2 - can't wait for that retina screen. ;) Just hope we can jailbreak it right away.

Was hoping for a little more beef in the MBP update - however, even though I bought the first generation it's not lagging behind in any quarter yet. So I can wait.

 

 

...has anyone tried out mavericks yet?

I installed Mavericks yesterday, took a few hours and i'm very impressed with it. As silly as it may sound but I think my MPB (2012 non-retina) actually got faster like everything is opening and closing ALOT faster and i've had no troubles with fullscreen mode in Safari. It's a very solid and stable update and if it cost $20 i'd buy it in a flash. One thing I found strange was that they decided to keep selling the iPad 2 for $400! Definitely should be around $250-300 now that it's 2 years old.

Can anyone explain how to use this wineskin / cider wrappers? I've been dying to play Morrowind on my Air without using Bootcamp and I'm having a tough time figuring it out

Why not bootcamp? Don't want to give up the diskspace?

Yeah and I've also taken a liking to the Mac interface. It's my first ever Mac computer (beyond an iPhone) and I'm quite enjoying it.

 

I'm not totally ruling out Bootcamp, but I've additionally already paid for the Pages app and I don't want to buy Microsoft Word as I'm using it a lot for school.

Well, for instance, I play most games on bootcamp. Takes maybe 15 seconds to boot on my macpro. Swapping over isn't really a thing. Because you're running with limited hardware, I'd strongly reccomend bootcamp as it'll run the games natively, not using a wrapper or emulator.

 

This is a decent guide should you wish to stick to your guns, though!

Not really a Mac OSX question but given this is the iThread I thought I'd ask here.

 

I have an iPhone 5s and I really want to get GTA San Andreas for mobile when it releases, now the problem is I live in Bangladesh and when entering my credit card information there IS no option for Bangladesh.. Anyone have any idea what can be done about this? 

 

Can I set my location to another country, but give my current billing address or something? It's like I WANT to buy products from Apple but I can't oddly enough.

^ I'm not 100% sure but I think you could make an iTunes US store account without a credit card as long as you have  a voucher code to add money at the start. You should be able to buy a $10 or whatever code from a place like this - http://usgiftcodes.c...CFQlZpQodqWQAsg

I already faked my billing address without a credit card so I have the account set. But when I'm buying stuff I have to use a billing address of a country which is in Apple's database. Bangladesh is not one of them so I'm left stuck.

But you've given me a fantastic idea, I could simply get an iTunes gift card and purchase stuff without needing a card at all, the site you've linked looks fishy so I'll just get it from the store 5 minutes away from here.

 

Thanks.

I've been told by several people to grab the iPhone 5S instead of the Galaxy S4 :D

 

I guess that's what I'm going with. I've only used one Apple product before, which was the iPod Touch (4th generation). It was my brothers, but he upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. I like using the iPod Touch so I hope I enjoy the iPhone even more :D This is my second smart phone (my first was a Huawei Ascend 2, what a terrible device) and I'm pretty excited.

 

Does anyone here actually have an iPhone 5S? Is it an excellent device?

I have a 64gig gold 5S and it's outrageously awesome.

 

The camera is reall quite good, the stock earbuds are a big step up from the old sh*thouse stock ones, the SoC is fast for everything except really buggy apps.

 

I was using the fingerprint scanner thing for a while but every now and then it wouldn't recognise my finger which is a f*cking pain in the arse and besides, no one else gets near my phone, so I turned it off.

 

The screen size is fine by me but I know a lot of assdroids think it's too small.

I have the 32 Gig Space Gray model and it's just fast, it's very very fast. I really like the App selection from the Appstore, the playstore still just isn't good enough. Sure the playstore has more apps but that doesn't mean they have the better apps. Display isn't a problem for me really, since you like the iPod it wont be a problem for you as well. Spock already talked about the camera but I've had no problems with the fingerprint sensor as of yet.

Can somebody help me? I have an iPad 2 running iOS 7.0.4 and I seem to be stuck at the confirmation part. How do I bypass this? Thanks.

 

This happened when I was trying to reformat my iPad, Updated to iOS 7.0.4 but stuck at that confirmation part. I forgot my login details.

So as you may know the iOS 7 jailbreak was released today for iOS 7.0, 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, 7.0.4, 7.1 B1, and 7.1 B2. Of course there are problems that need to be fixed but my problem is with evasion7 itself. It won't run. Its an APPCRASH event with an exception code c0000005. Has anyone else experienced this? Im using windows vista and I've installed the latest .net framework and tried running under Windows 98 compatibility but no luck.

Oh sweet! I'm going to do the jail break now. There aren't very many things better in this world then playing pokemon red emulated on your iphone.

Yeah. Evad3rs claimed they are gonna take out the Chinese app store asap. In believe that its only installed on your idevice if your language is set to Chinese or if you are in china. Many believe that something else could be packed in the jailbreak even if the Chinese app store is not installed with cydia but I disagree.

It seems like it's included, regardless, though you can remove it,

What's troubling to me is that evasi0n doesn't even seem to be fully aware of the contents.

@otter A company asked evad3rs to install it along with cydia and they agreed. So they were aware but I edited the post above yours with links

Totes, and I don't mean to keep railing about this, but this gives one pause:

 

 

We are happy that it was not overlooked by the community. We've been so heads down working on the code that we didn't see this. We are sorry. We will continue to monitor this issue and work to resolve it completely

 

What else "didn't they see" in this Chinese software? :p You know what I mean? I'm going to hold on until Cydia gives a thumbs up.

Guys, while Im searching the web, I thought I would post here. I have a 5S with 7.0.4, and ever since getting a new laptop (Win8) I can no longer add songs via itunes drag and drop. I have had to go back to my old laptop to do this and it's so frustrating. :( Any ideas?

 

Edit - Fixed.

Digital distribution is fun, but...

 

I bought a second hand '08 iMac some time ago. I don't mind buying the desktops second hand, particularly this one off a friend, knowing how it had been treated. Even though I'll be using it for work, I won't be pushing it to the max.

 

Anyway, I wanted to do a clean OS instal, especially because said mate didn't even bother to clear his data. I figured I might as well move to Mavericks. Downloaded it; all methods of creating a bootable drive failed, for some reason. I had to install Snow Leopard, update it, download Mavericks yet again, and finally install it. Ugh.

I was stupidly reckless with my 2013 15" MacBook Pro With Retina Display and dropped it, completely destroying the display.

 

Took it in to an Apple Store and I was told it would cost $700 for a new clamshell but they ended up fixing it up with the $700 part for me for free.

 

Add it to the reasons of why I love Apple.

Alright, something is wrong with my Macbook Pro Retina 13-inch (late 2013). Basically my trackpad and keyboard aren't working. Most of the keyboard buttons aren't working except for the spacebar, the brightness, and the volume. I have Mavericks OS X 10.9.5. I haven't spilled anything, it just stopped working.

 

Any ideas?
