We’ve heard rumors about this for about a year now but it seems it is now a reality.   The 8-core Mac Pro was listed on the Apple UK website and was taken down as soon as they realized the mistake.  I don’t know when the announcement will be, tommorow or a month from now, but you can be sure it will be met with a bit of a snicker.  After all once the cat’s out of the bag…


Time To Spring Forward

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard that the start of daylight savings time has changed this year. In what might go down as the most futile attempt to curb energy consumption, the Energy Policy Act of 2005 changed both the starting and ending dates of DST. The new dates this year are March 11 to November 4.

Some people are predicting this year to be another Y2K but there are a few steps you can take to protect yourself from imminent doom and disaster.

To make sure your system clock and Outlook appointments are correct, Microsoft offers a Time Zone Update Tool as a free download. Check the list of products affected by DST to see if you need to crawl back under that rock and wait it out.

If you are an OSX or Vista user you should be fine. Also make sure if you use XP that you set your computer to update automatically.
