Every Friday, the staff at Crazy Apple Rumors Site answers common help questions based on our vast experience with Apple products and our fervent belief that we know more than you do.
And you’ll be happy to know that this week we have a Help Desk episode for you! Uh, unfortunately, we somehow lost the middle parts in post-production. I’m not sure how that happened. We’ve got the first line and the last line, but that’s it.
Hey, that’s an improvement over the last two weeks, right?
OK, let’s see what we’ve got.
Q: I have a brand new 8-core Mac Pro and I need to do some high-end video editing. I’ve got enough horse power, of course, but I’m concerned about my storage. What’s a reasonable amount of storage for high-end video processing?
A: That’s not salad dressing.
Hmm. That was an odd one. Uh… I’m not sure what was going on there.
Well, let’s try the next one.
Q: My iMac seems to have a problem connecting to iChat. I can get through on the same network using my MacBook, but not on the iMac. What am I doing wrong?
A: Well, that’s fine for you, but what about the manatee?!
I think that had something to do with sea mammals.
Well, obviously, but I mean Mac-using sea mammals.
Q: My PowerBook has served me well for several years now, but I’m thinking it’s time to upgrade to a MacBook Pro. What are the considerations I should make?
UGLUK: [glack] Ugh. Uh… me think me swallow it.
Now that one I remember! Ha-ha! Ahh…
But, uh, you kind of had to be there.
