    Where to get a cheap "do em up" Mac mini

    Stuck with the decisions of the EU with choice in the matter.

    Where to get a cheap "do em up" Mac mini

    I've had a few bad items from CEX but always got money back when I've returned them.

    Sounds like there's current leakage into the audio circuitry and it's just making random sounds. Won't happen in a full shutdown state as there's less of the board powered up.

    Where to get a cheap "do em up" Mac mini

    Could be the country-wide rain and occasional severe flooding we've been having over the last week or so. May render any electrical items left outside a bit fucked up Also stuck with the fucking WEEE regulations, electronic products need to be recycled rather than smashed for scrap. Nothing to do with a "nanny state" (unless you count the EU), and everything to do with the EU and their wonderful ideas.

    How long do you use your pcs?

    Recently put a pair of Xeon x5590's in my rig, over 10 years old at this point

    Where to get a cheap "do em up" Mac mini

    The UK is full of scrap yards where anyone can walk in and grab what they want. What we don't have is people suing said scrapyards when they injure themselves climbing up a pile of cars, we just get on with it

    [ Techquickie ] Are Macs REALLY Safer?

    Android has 70% share in Europe for mobile devices. Even just as an operating system it's at about 30% where as iOS is about 15%. The world doesn't revolve around North America you know.

    It's probably on it's way out. Does it do it with a proper shut down too?

    Apple is misundertanding the "pro" market

    Maybe, just maybe he meant that wholesale suppliers don't have discounts for Apple products.

    Cynicism in regards to Apple pro stand

    I'm going to guess the Crapple mount is nothing more than a few screws into the monitor then the standard VESA pattern. £50 most for a milled alumimium bracket supplied with a handfull of screws and 4 threads tapped for the VESA mount. One off price of course. I think Apple treats it's engineers like they're making one-off products. We have this design and you will make it fit this stand and you cannot deviate from our asthetic vision.

    Cynicism in regards to Apple pro stand

    Okay, you're right. My 50+KG plasma TV has 4 VESA mounting points but sure, Apple made a heavier monitor. Edit to save another post.... The "cheap" adaptor convert the Apple mounting system to guess what. One guess what 4 hole standard pattern is on the other side of that adaptor.

    Cynicism in regards to Apple pro stand

    They did think about it, about how much money they can extort from customers. VESA is a standard for where some holes are, all they need is 4 holes in the monitor with threads in them. Simple and won't get in the way of anything.

    Cynicism in regards to Apple pro stand

    Not if the VESA pattern is in the monitor itself, like every other manufacturer does. 4 little threaded inserts which cost nothing in the grand scheme of things.

    Apple continues to sue norway phone repair shop owner

    If this was in the car world it would be laughed out of court. BMW sues a local car parts shop for fitting counterfeit headlamp bulbs with OSRAM Xenon printed on the box. Maybe then they go after salvage yards that dismantle scrap cars and sell parts on for selling counterfeit steering wheels, even though they came out of a BMW. But because it's a technology company they can get away with it.
