I recently purchased a MacBook Pro. I was eagerly expecting a seamless setup experience. The experience was not seamless. The good news is I have a working system. The bad news is it took a while to get here. I’m writing my experience to help others who may also be setting up a new Mac […]
I’m experiencing a strange Safari 3 bug on Leopard involving color on web pages. It seems that sometimes a page will “lose” its color past a certain point on a page after I scroll down.
