    crap from the Apple Store but its so worth it.

    Here it goes my list:


    - 1 Macbook Pro Retina 15" fully upgraded
    - 1 Macbook Air 11 basic model
    - 1 Airport Extreme
    - 1 Airport Express(acting as repeater)
    - 2 Thunderbolt Displays
    - 1 iPhone 5S 32GB(well still waiting for it to be delivered)
    - 1 iPhone 5S 16GB
    - 1 iPad Air 32GB
    - 1 iPad Mini
    - 3 Apple TVs


    I think thats it.

    I try and wake up every morning and think of new ways to support slave labor, as I am sure you do as well. From my water filtration system, put together my Pakistani slaves, to my gym shorts (thank you Nike Vietnamese slaves) to my shoes, Chinese slaves (some of my favorites (Apple, see above) to my Ikea bath fixtures (Swedish slaves no doubt) and I actually put on some Indian slave t-shirt so I could walk to the bakery and have one of those Mexican slave made rolls I find so refreshing with the Guatemalan slave labor coffee I try to drink on my walk around the neighborhood.

    Suicide nets. Put up there just so that American liberals can say that it's just for show and that Apple products are not being made using slave labor and the workers aren't committing suicide because of the horrendous working conditions.

    Stop feeding the troll. This is southbeach, beating the same dead horse he has for years that Apple is the only US tech company that uses overseas labor. Just ignore his attempts at trying to disrupt this gay site. If past is prelude, this sock will soon be banned like all the rest. icon_razz.gif

    Error saidDo you have a new airport extreme? Why did they stop supporting timemachine for the older airport extremes? I haven't been able to back up my macbook icon_sad.gif


    I have the older one with a network drive but it's not setup as time machine. My TM drive is hooked up to my macbook since I don't want to eat up my wifi's bandwidth with OTA backups. Just hook it up directly.

    -iPod: hated it. Mostly because iTunes and how it didn't allow me to transfer music unless it was purchased from iTunes.

    -MacBook Pro: hated it. It got pretty hot and it eventually died on me due to power issues. Prefer Windows any day of the week.

    -Mom has an iPhone 4S: she swears it's the best phone even though she doesn't know anything about technology and hasn't tried any other smartphone. Which makes up a lot of the iPhone clientele which just makes me hate iPhones.

    My 7 year old 40 gig iPod is getting glitchy, but I still use it every day at work for background music.

    I had a first gen Nano, which Apple recalled because of a battery problem and replaced with a 6 gig 6th generation nano for free. It's in a drawer some where.

    I also have a 4th generation Nano I won from my car dealership in a drawing.

    I have an iPhone 4, probably won't replace it with another iPhone unless there is a radical redesign.

    This is in my office, so I was getting other students to back up their macbooks on it too, which was super convenient and of course the only way they'll back up anything is if I make them. I also don't want the hassle of having to eject it before leaving every day, but I guess I need to just connect it directly to my display's usb.


    Have you tried upgrading the firmware on both your Mac and your Airport Extreme? Try hooking up a new hard drive to the AE and it should prompt you to set it up as Time Machine. If that still doesnt work just give Apple support a call, there could be something wrong with your Airport Extreme's USB connection.

    The same I've had my iPod since HS -- the black classic video. It works fine for the most part, but sometimes it freezes mostly when it's on my sounddock. I was torn between the Nano and shuffle, but I like how I can just clip the shuffle onto my collar. I also like not having a screen to distract me at the gym. It has two playlists weights and cardio. It's basically full already I tried Apples Loss Less, but prefer WAV files from a CD. I also added a 12 min WAV file of Beyoncé's Superbowl performance -- it always gets me pumped LMAO.

    My mom goes through iPods like nothing. She just bought a touch and I begged her not to open it. I told her I'd buy a case on Amazon. I'm going to get an Otterbox, but somehow I think she'll still break it. Her last one was the 160 GB similar to my classic style. I find these to be durable -- so when I found out she had the touch I was like you need a decent case.

    A lot of my friends use Apple for work. It's apparently the standard in video editing etc.

    In house:

    2 iPhone 5S
    2 iPhone 5
    1 iPhone 4
    4 iPads
    2 iMacs
    3 MacBooks
    1 Airport Extreme
    3 iPods

    I probably am missing something, but I don't even consider myself a fanboy- I buy any brand that has the best product for my needs.

    I own just the following Apple products:

    - iPod Touch 3rd generation, 32 GB. Stops at iOS 5.1.1
    - iPod Shuffle, the USB drive looking one

    I was planning to spend about 4 grand on Apple this month, but I thought seriously about it and realized I really don't need it. In a tough economy like this, its better I save the money for emergencies.

    Hopefully in the future I will be able to afford one of the desktops or laptops. Right now, I only have one working computer and its my desktop at home.
