15" MacBooks to Coming in 2nd Quarter?

DigiTimes' Ruby Huang and Steve Shen report:

"Apple is planning to introduce 15.4-inch MacBooks in the second quarter of 2007, according to industry sources in Taiwan. The new model will fill the gap between the company's 13.3-inch MacBooks and the 15.4- and 17-inch MacBook Pros that form its current notebook line up, and is expected to boost shipments of Apple's Intel-powered MacBooks, the sources add....

"Currently, 13.3-inch MacBooks are manufactured by Asustek Computer, while the new 15.4-inch model will be made by Quanta Computer, which also manufactures the 15.4- and 17-inch MacBook Pros for Apple....

"Prices for the 15.4-inch MacBook models are likely to be more competitive than their 13.3-inch counterparts, due largely to the relatively lower cost of 15.4-inch LCD panels...."

Going Mac Means Doing It Your Way

IBM Developerworks blogger Christopher Perrien says:

"I came to IBM from the world of Mac Development, mostly multi-media titles for National Geographic. Before the Internet took off and the NG brand was fought for by every designer on the planet. PowerBooks, G3s and G4s, stuck with OS 7 forever. Even endured the humiliation of Scully-Spindler-Amelio-Hancock before Steve Jobs returned. Thought that H-P would buy Apple just after the episode of spontaneously combusting PowerBook batteries. Joined IBM, issued my slab with 95, bid farewell to ease-of-use and welcomed the Windows world of 'where is that file?'

Ya gotta have a Windows box; you want to have a Mac....

"Don't let anyone tell you that the OS 10 and XP are the same. I did more exploring with my Mac in the first weekend than I did with my Windows boxes over the past 8 years. Ya gotta have a Windows box; you want to have a Mac....

"Like many, I was drawn back to the Mac by my family's thrills with their iPods (original, nano, and video)....

"What put my Mac purchase in automatic was the recent IBM announcement to support Linux and Macs...."

MacBook Pro Heat: 'It's a Notebook, Not a Laptop'

Ron Miller says:

"I was using my MBP [MacBook Pro] last week when the fan came on. I wasn't doing anything unusual in terms of computing power, so I thought it odd, especially since I hadn't heard the fan come on in the two plus months I had been using it. Then I felt the bottom of the machine, and that sucker was hot to the touch.

"I shut down the machine as a precaution, waited for about a half hour and turned it on again. After about 20 minutes the fan came on again and I called Apple iCare.

"I explained that I generally work with the MBP on my lap with a lap pad from Laplogic to protect me from heat (which is why I didn't feel the heat more acutely). I was then told that the MBP was not intended to be used on the lap.

"'It's a notebook,' the technician told me, 'not a laptop.'"

Random Shutdowns and Restarts on a Core 2 MacBook's Mike says:

"I have had a MacBook Core 2 Duo (Late 2006) since early January 2007. On February 18, I came back into my office to find it off, which was odd, because I never turn it off (I usually put it to sleep).

"Later that day, while I was working on it, it shut itself down without warning (it literally clicked off instantly - no apps were shutdown and the OS did not restart properly) and then went into a fit of restarts....

"It has done this half a dozen times in the 24 hours since, and I can rarely work on the machine for more than an hour.

"This was an acknowledged problem with the original MacBook, and has become known as 'Random Shutdown System'. Apple released a Firmware Update which purported to fix the problem. This update is not recommended for new (Late 2006, Core 2 Duo) MacBooks. According to the MacInTouch Reliability Survey the C2D MacBooks do not exhibit this problem, but this MacBook would seem to disprove that theory."

Upgrade a Core Duo-based MacBook to Support WiFi 802.11n

Hardmac's Lionel reports:

"With the introduction of APX 802.11n base stations, Apple announced that the majority of its current machines are compatible with the draft of that standard via a drive update. On the other hand, the MacBook and MacBook Pro Core Duo aren't likely to get compatible AirPort modules. For Apple, these machines are condemned to always remain at 802.11g.

"This is even more annoying if you buy one of the new base stations and decide to run in a mixed g and n wireless mode, because in this instance the performance in g will be degraded. Being in this exact situation, we decided to look at the possibility of placing a 802.11n card in a MacBook Core Duo. Though there was one problem: The Core 2 Duo models now have 3 antennas instead of the 2 in the preceding models. We were worried about having problems as a result of finding a module with 3 antenna connections and leaving one vacant.

"So we were shocked to find that the MacPro's AirPort card which is also 802.11n compatible had only 2 antennas."

Your Laptop's Optical Drive: Washed-up Has-been or Reliable Standby?

MacUser's Dan Moren says:

"Rumors of a Mac sub-notebook have been swirling ever since the demise of the 12" PowerBook G4. One need look no further than the most recent MacUser Podcast, should you be interested to hear our sometimes cogent, often amusing take on the matter...

"Also setting the new model aside from its existing counterparts, those same people say, may be the conspicuous absence of an optical disc drive. Although Apple's original plans for the notebook called for its inclusion, reports are that the daunting ergonomics have recently driven company engineers to make a concession, forming yet another parallel between the new notebook and the defunct PowerBook 2400. No optical drive? thought I. Not bloody likely."

How to Fix a Dead Pixel

Macinstruct's Stephen Korecky says:

"There comes a time in the life of every computer where one of the pixels on that beautiful LCD screen decides to not 'play along'? with the others. Usually it does one of two things:

  1. It stays one color and refuses to change (Stuck Pixel).
  2. It goes to sleep (Dead Pixel).

"There is always a slight chance that the pixel is dead for good. But 90% of the time it can be fixed. Don't be discouraged if this method doesn't work right away - you just have be patient and keep at it a while."

Deathhacker: Your Guide to Destructivity - A 'How Not To'

Wired bloggers Michael Calore and Scott Gilbertson say:

"There's been some talk 'round these parts about a series of how-to type articles and while that sounds great and all I just got back from an extended stay in Asia and I feel such a project would necessarily require a balancing counterpart - how-not-to articles.

"This started out as an attempt to combine two broken half broken iBooks into one working iBook which my folks could use when they travel. Utilizing my training as a certified Apple repair technician I was able to successfully remove the screen and trackpad from one iBook and place them in the other to create a fulling [sic] working, good as new iBook.

"Okay that's a lie. I'm not a certified Apple technician, but I was able to convert my two half-broken iBooks into two completely broken iBooks. Read on to find out how I did it."

Invention: Hot Lap Prevention

NewScientist news service's Barry Fox reports:

"Anyone who uses a laptop computer will know just how hot they can get. This overheating can sometimes cause injury, and may even reduce male fertility, if a user fails to notice how hot their machine is getting.

"Intel is patenting a solution which uses light to sense when a computer casing is getting too hot, and automatically 'throttles back' the power.

"Since heating is uneven inside a laptop, with hot spots occurring near power-hungry components, ordinary thermometers are an unreliable way to determine whether someone is risking a scorched lap. Instead, Intel reckons a simple light sensor could provide a much better early warning system."

PowerBookResQ/MacResQ Changes Name to iResQ

PR: PowerBookResQ announced Friday that they have renamed their business to iResQ. This rebranding will simplify the recognition of their repair programs and will provide room for growth into new markets. They have a new look, offer additional next-day Macintosh Portable Computer repair services and have a cleaner website design to go with the new name.

Since 1994, we've been known as MacResQ

PowerBookResQ performs next-day MacBook, MacBook Pro, PowerBook and iBook repairs. They have always provided the easiest and quickest repair services to their customers and the baseline of their repairs includes pickup and delivery of the customer unit. Until recently the company has provided services for iPods, PowerBooks, iBooks, and MacBooks under several different division names and moving forward they will continue to provide their current line of premier next-day services while expanding with new services on even more products.

During the rebranding they have expanded their repair operations and are now offering 3 tiers of service. PowerBookResQ set the market by offering a $99 service that included 3-way overnight shipping. Moving forward, iResQ will continue that same level of service at the same price and add 2 additional service levels at just $49 and $29.

"Since 1994, we've been known as MacResQ," said Ryan Arter, President of iResQ. "Then we slowly added divisions: PowerBookResQ, PowerMacResQ, iPodResQ, and MacBookResQ. In an effort to help eliminate confusion, iResQ was born. It's our new all-encompassing brand that is a culmination of years of hard work and consolidation. In times past, it was beneficial for us to have our domains separated to target specific markets. However, we are planning new services and the confusion about "Who we are" is growing. Our plan is to simplify this and we hope that iResQ will be easier to remember, easier to type and easier to locate. Our mission stays the same. As we pioneered the next-day iPod and Macintosh Portable Computer repair programs, we'll continue to add next-day services as the market demands."

For computer resellers and repair centers, iResQ offers discounted rates on products and services. Computer dealers can send overflow service work or seamlessly outsource their entire iPod or Macintosh Portable repair operation. Volume discounts are available for schools and government agencies.

iResQ (formerly MacResQ) was founded in 1994 with the premise that there is a better way to purchase, maintain, upgrade and repair your Mac. iResQ customers realize extreme value by using any of their premier nationwide, next-day turnaround services in the U.S. is the place where price barriers are destroyed and support for all makes and models of iPods and Macintosh Portable Systems is available from people who enjoy using a Mac as much as you do.

smcFanControl 2 Completely Rewritten

PR: smcFanControl lets the user set the minimum speed of the build in fans. So you can increase your minimum fan speed to make your Intel Mac run cooler.

However in order not to damage your machine scFanControl let's you not set minimum speed to a rate under Apple's defaults. In addition to that fans are still in automatic mode, so the speed of your fans will increase, if CPU load gets higher.

smcFanControl 2.0 features

  • Displays temperature and fan speed in the menu bar
  • Apply different fan-settings with just one click
  • Let's you set different minimum speeds for every fan separately and save them as favorites
  • Autoapply different fan settings when the power source changes (MacBooks only)
  • Source code included! Extend it and change it to your needs

Approach of the program:

New in version 2.0:

  • Version 2.0 is a completely rewritten application.
  • Version 1.x was a "regular" application located in the dock. Version 2.0 sits in the menu bar for quicker access to the fan settings, easier monitoring and a better overall user-experience
  • Version 2.0 supports every Intel Mac
  • In Version 2.0 you can save different fan-settings as favorites and active them with just one mouse-click
  • On portables you can autoapply different fan-settings, when the power source changes. So you can cool down your MacBook automatically when its loading the battery (and is typically running hotter).
  • Version 2.0 has got an "add to login-items option" now
  • Version 2.0 uses standard OS X authentication now

System requirements: Mac OS X 10.4 or later.

System support: Intel
