I prefer not to cut.

I love my first I phone 5! I have not received it yet, but I love it, best thing ever.

Is that what you have to do if you want to use CAN bus instead of OBDII?
What does CAN give that OBDII doesn't?

If anyone wants a 13" Mac Air with 1.86 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 gig of ram and a 128g hard drive, $1000 shipped (continental us).

Excellent condition . Only flaw is the black paint is coming off the "period" key. No scratches, dents, or other damage. Includes original box and the cd/dvd superdrive. Has latest OS Mountain Lion, Windows 7, and Parallels already installed.

Nope, I wish I didn't fall for the hype. I bought iFail4s, iPads, MBAs, MBPs,... only the iPad gets some use until I land on a site that requires Flash...

Dell's customer service blows for sure. But this product is pretty cool. I treat buying from Dell like going to a Chinese restaurant that thinks good customer service is giving you the bill quickly.

And for people who like CF, the backing of the Dell XPS 13 is a one piece of CF. Only issue is the fan being a bit loud at times, but at least it has never burned me like my MB Pro. Man, that computer ran hot!

See above. Vbox is instant if you're willing to start cutting. Clark and Grady are very pleased but according them they did have to attach to ECU wiring somehow. Didn't get into specifics though. I'm okay with lag as I don't plan on winning the DE cup

No hype, I started using Mac back in 1999 and never looked back. Mac always was what a PC would like to be, of course there are a lot more softwares and such, as the masses use PC, but no downside to me.

To each his own. Owning a mac is like riding a harley in a 1%'er gang. I'd rather ride a honda.

Let's talk. I'll negotiate. I already know what ultrabook I want and they have it in stock.

Nicely done

BTW, found another issue with Mac. My OBD scan tool doesn't like a virtualized windows environment. Uggggghhh.

So why not just get a windows machine? Did I mention how douchey the "genius" bar is? Anyway....

I am slowly getting rid of all things mac in my life. The only thing left is my mac air. And now that they have ultrabooks in pc, I'll probably make the switch here shortly. I have a 24" imac that is about 5 years old if anyone is looking.

I tried running boot camp. Has crashed twice now. The Greek tried it too. Same thing. Not to mention it takes up a **** load of HD space keeping two OS's on there. Which is critical when using something with so little storage as the air.

But if you must....

Try parallels. I'm using that now. We'll see how it goes. It uses boot camp too, but allows you to run both OS at the same time. You lose features when you boot solely into Windows mode. So that is nice that you get to keep most of your apple keyboard functionality.

Don't buy retail copies of Windows 7. Get a builder's edition from comp usa or tiger direct. It's generally less than half price of a regular retail copy. I don't get what the difference is, but I've bought them a couple times like that.

nah, rest of the world that are not mac compatible is not worth knowing to me.

sites that must do flash... i just ignore.

now if RL becomes mac incompatible.... i may finally seek psychological help.

Peter would have to be committed. He gets very cranky if he doesn't get at least 8 hours of RL.


This is too funny not to post
