    I kept my 4s in the draw for months until the Jb was release. I Can't use iPhone without JB.

    I got 4s, 4, 3GS, 3G & 2g.

    4 are paperweight at the moment.

    iPods, aptv remotes and wifi browsers for now, Until I find a suitable home.

    Location services could be running in background even after it is wiped. Location services run in the background even when the phone is off.

    Windows 8 can lick my anus. Why does Microsoft have to introduce a new OS when they finally just fine tuned the previous version?

    I hate change.

    My friend just got a new laptop, and she asked me to help set it up but didn't mention that it came with W8. So even though I rarely use Windows and avoid modern interfaces (too distracting) W8 didn't confound me in the same way that OSX did at first...but it's a pretty big metaphor shift for MS. I figured out the ribbon well enough to get by and the start screen did what it needed to do...the learning curve was tolerable, especially if you use anything with a touch screen and/or cover flow (iPhone and XMBC come to mind).

    Since it wasn't a touch screen, I turned off the corners/gestures so things would stop zooming around but didn't tweak anything about the interface besides that (and that was only so I could get things done). The terminal (DOS) seems the same aside from adding a "sudo" feature (elevated command prompt), which was long overdue but at this point seems like another example of MS adding something everyone else has had since the 80s (i.e. mounting ISOs, disk imaging, virtual desktops, etc...if you're talking about a root account, it's really more like the 60s but hey).

    You may not like it, but based on everything else I've seen out there it looks like this is the direction the user interface is headed in....and for once, MS got a pretty solid jump on almost everyone with W8.

    I've been wondering how user friendly it is for non-touchscreen applications. It's probably not something I'll upgrade to soon but it's good to hear that it isn't another Vista.

    So anyone know where I can find drivers for sony dvd burners? I am trying to burn a dual layer dvd with a player that is capable of burning it but it won't recognize the disc when I insert it, yes I have the right dvd dual layers for the burner, but I think I need to update the firmware to get it to work properly on my system. Google has been no help to me thus far.

    Sony is an odd company. You may want to try and contact them directly or try http://esupport.sony.com for drivers and other support. Their tech/customer service reps will likely try to sell you something. I know because I used to be one.

    I will likely try to sell them something, and hopefully succeed. I will try that though thanks.

    So maybe someone here can help me maybe not. I'm trying to boot my ppc g5 off a usb which isn't supported and install 10.5 on my system. When booting my computer refuses to detect the USB drive. I've looked into it and from what I can gather usb booting isn't supported on my model. Anyone know how I can do this?

    EDIT: also thanks for that sony link but they claim to have no knowledge of my dvd burner.

    If it doesn't support booting an OS from a USB, then attempt to burn the .dmg onto a disc and install 10.5 from there.



    **This may or may not work, since you said that it doesn't support USB booting. Try it anyways**

    Make sure that the USB drive is formatted to what a OSX hard drive would be normally formatted to, Mac OS X Extended (Journaled), in order for it to be bootable and recognized as a bootable drive by your G5.
