  1. .Right!! He already mentioned that, But he's asking how can he fix it and your post helps exactly, how? Yusuf, I suggest you take it to the nearest apple store or any place in your are who handle apple repairs. Since it was your fault of spilling liquid on the keys, I don't see you getting any free fixes... you'll have to pay for whatever you have done...
  2. If you're not restricted by budget. Get Core i7 920 processor + X58 mobo and 4GB of DDR3 RAM along with either ATi HD4870 graphics. One thing to note about Graphic card is that it's no point spending on high-end graphic card unless you're playing at really high resolution with graphic settings maxed out. A quick table should to help you... If the budget is an issue.. then get Core2Quad Q6600 or Core2Duo E8400 processor, X48 based mobo and 4GB DDR2 800/1066MHz Ram. If you can share more info such as your display resolution and games you play, I can help you deciding complete configuration which will be great Value for Money.
  3. Death to DRM was imminent... after all, what kind of tech you think will survive, which annoys the legit buyers more than pirates. I hope to see complete DRM removal by the end of this year from everything. Die, B!tch die!!
  4. I can't get into technical breakdown like matonga here, but it's not exactly about mp3 decoding of iTunes or Foobar. What Heril said does stand true, but let me explain why foobar is better than iTunes. It's not the decoding itself.. foobar let you use either ASIO or Kernel Streaming, bypassing windows audio mixer, thus removing one processing step from audio transfer path. Each step added to audio transfer affects the output. So when you're using Kernel Streaming or ASIO, your audio is preserved from the player's decoder to audio hardware. Besides that, the end quality ultimately depends on the source audio.. and that's where heril is correct. If you're going to play a lossless wav file on crappy hardware (speakers, amp or sound cards.. etc.) the final output isn't sound that good. Similarly, playing lossy audio like mp3 on good hardware will bring forth the lossy areas of source audio. The whole point of using Foobar output in iTunes was to use Kernel Streaming or ASIO. If you're using Foobar without kernel streaming then it doesn't make much difference. Both Heril and jx12345 are right to certain degree. But then again, that doesn't anyone a right to throw insults or use harsh language. Ultimately, the sound quality is again... subjective for person to person. Like matonga said very correctly, some like using DSPs and enhancers while some prefer to listen to purest form of source file. For example, I prefer higher bitrate MP3s or Lossless files while listening on desktop, but I burn cds for my car in nothing more than 128kbps mp3s. Because while driving I just want to listen to songs, quality doesn't matter as there are other audio interefences in surroudings. It's not like I'm going to pick up a subtle note very clearly in car.
  5. I'm on FB and Orkut... but to say that I use them would be highly wrong, an occasional visit and msg to friends... that's about it for my social networking presence.
  6. Nice... Ain't you Rahul Duggal from TE?
  7. Did I ever said that iTunes is better sounding than Foobar?? Huh?? Probably you misread what I wrote or simply decided to ignore it.... The two main reasons I used Multi-Plugin was.. 1) It helped reduce memory footprint while in minimized mode 2) Foobar pass-through. FYI: I use foobar on my desktop for music primarily. iTunes is used primarily on my iBook, just to sync my iPod and to stream music from.
  8. Sheer beauty... as always, typical vlad humor.
  9. Many Happy returns of the day dude... have a blast and lot of beer !!
  10. Mine is short reverse of my other nickname... YoGi --> iGo. The idea is that YoGi is my real life nickname... so iGo is my alter-ego in virtual life. Those who are old members, will remember my previous username being igoy, that is before I requested it to change and loose the Y in process.
  11. While I agree, but not entirely. Apple still designs and develop their own logic boards... as far as I know, HP doesn't and Dell also does so for some of their models. If you go by standard configurations, Apple is very much competitive with other vendors (HP/Dell)... where Apple rips you off, is in upgrade options (Ram, HDD etc). Sensible thing to do is pick up standard configuration and upgrade it your self using cheap deals... newegg such as.
  12. Oh please... there have been numerous instances of adverts using masked (apple logo removed) apple notebooks being used. It's only because of their aesthetically appealing forms. Don't try and make something more out of it.
  13. I hope they don't make them glossy screens mandatory... at least not on PRO's. I prefer matte. I love matte. OT : Seems like this Pimp boy is doing good job keeping up with news. Mods, you can kick me out of newsposters group and let him have my place. I'm not being really up for it recently.
