Where’s My Mail Control Panel?

(or my Quicktime Control Panel, or my Java control panel…)  This has been bugging me for a while.  I don’t know if there is a KB article or not, but I thought I would share the solution. Ever since I have been using Windows Vista, I have not had a Mail Control Panel.  The Mail…

What the heck, Apple?

I have 5 different computers with iTunes. 5 different computers with the Apple Software Update program.  5 different computers that will NOT update iTunes through Apple’s updater program, which is not shy in bugging me that I don’t have the latest version.  What the heck?!?!  Uninstalling…

Taking Screenshots in Boot Camp

In my next post, I’ll cover my Boot Camp experience on my MacBook Pro.  But in order to do so, I wanted to take some screenshots.  Unfortunately, the MacBook Pro does not have  a Print Screen button on the keyboard, which makes it difficult to take a screenshot. There are a couple of workarounds… In…

Apple, we feel your pain…

When you are developing a large Software project, be it an Operating System or a major Virtualization Release, there are a large number of components that make up the finished product.  Despite the best planning efforts from the Program managers, and the best development and test efforts from the Dev teams, release dates sometimes slip.  As it…
