Yep, it's on tv. I'll catch some it some times and other times not. Just depends on what I'm doing at the time.

Are you going to it in person at any time? Is it near you?

I saw a snippet on the news. I'm not sure if it started televising on tv yet or not.

Guess what?

My printer works fine now and 'coupon printer' software now works.

However, the scanner is gone! :lol:

I have a wireless all in one printer. I've never hooked up the fax with it but everything worked
the beginning. With the updates that have been going on with apple, my printer stopped working. It took
me hours to locate drivers for it at apple. I probably have a ton of printer drivers on this mac that is doing
nothing but taking up space. Finally there was some updates and the printer worked.

Now with this upgrade, the printer does work fine but the scanner does not work! I read someone else
has the same problem, their scanner disappeared.

Not only has the scanner disappeared, I can't find the settings at all on my mac for it. It's totally gone!

I think they should be paying us not the other way around.

I've had growl on here for a long time but perhaps never realized what it's purpose really is. I'll have to
check it out further.

The coupon printer install automatically came up when I was at the walmart coupon printer page.
I guess with this upgrade, they fixed it. There was a popup on the page that stated OS X so that
is cool. I did the install and it works.

My printer is working fine too. I don't know if it was from the upgrade or due to the dsl people fixing
the remote at the connector down the road.

I can say the upgrade was worth it to me. It obviously upgraded with the major coupon printer softwares
out there. I'm not a big coupon clipper but there are times when I see a good one that I will use. Can't
use it if you can't print it out. :lol:

Oh I figured out, sort of, what that drop column was I was seeing at the apple site in video images.
It's the line symbols up the top right corner, when I click it, it moves the desktop over to the left and
says 'No Notifications' in an empty column to the right. Guess I am going to have to activate something
if I want that to appear.

Growl....well I don't know. I've got the bear claw symbol up there and I use to get a constant 'update growl' that drove me nuts and I think I turned all that off. Not to mention people coming and going thru chat rooms and with speakers on, that drove me nuts too.

I'm getting ready to test the printer and coupon printer. Those coupon sites out there make ya download their printer software. Which is a crock of dog do. Also my dsl guy was out here today and told me there was an issue down the road at the connector. Something about the remote. I've been noticing more and more static on my landline and dsl going off and on frequently. Could be my printer will work correctly now. I'm going to reboot everything and see.

Also, I am pretty sure you are correct about doing the upgrades on many devices. Some people have a lot of apple products. I only have this imac and I have an apple 4th generation iPod.

The dictation.....oh it appears to be a joke. I started to try it for composing an email and it says, it sends your message to apple to convert it to text and takes your contacts too!

I tell ya, as time continues, you just wait and see if you have any privacy at all left! Privacy will soon be a thing of the past.

In addition, I am considering the apple tv and thought this upgrade would be good for it. I've got to read more about it before I decide to purchase.

Yes I read about the facebook integration not available right now.

I have not looked over everything yet. You know the thing about me and MAC, I don't utilize half of what is on it.
Yet it seems, as soon as you want something, you don't have it. :lol:
Plus, I've never taken the time out to even discover how everything works or what everything is.

I'm not sure what that side bar column is that it displays in the video images at apple for this upgrade.
It's not displaying on mine. Maybe I have to click something to drop it down.

Also, I have never set up my mac email system. I have not figured out a reason to do so. Why would I want a
bunch of email flying in on my computer when I can keep gmail open in a tab, 24/7?

Personally, I think this update should have been free. I mean my gosh, we just paid for an upgrade a few months ago for Lion and I think everyone that upgraded to Lion, should have had this upgrade free.

I just wonder now if the coupon printer thingie will work now. I have not been able to print out coupons since I did the Lion upgrade. Also, my wireless printer some times works, and some times does not. Here again, that became an issue with the Lion upgrade.

The 'Notes' and the 'Reminders', I doubt I will ever use those either.

The main thing for me about doing the upgrade is, it seems that as time moves forward, other things come out that want you to have those upgrades. Also if you don't do the upgrades, when they come out with another, you may have to stop and do the previous before you can do the recent.

It's a catch 22.

I have not tried the dictation yet but will in awhile after I get woke up.
With that said, I did read thru many of the reviews and have not read anyone having a problem with it.

It took mine 4 and a half hours to download. Then it took 30 minutes to install.
I'm presently looking at what's new.

It completed the updates. I think it must have been busy or I simply had a slow connection at that moment. Not sure but I suspect it is everyone doing updates.

Ok, now I am wondering what the point is of the mountain lion. I have the new safari, updates, etc. Seems I have most of what they mentioned in mountain lion.

I did a stop and then start and it appears to be going a little faster.
This is what my update says:

iWork Update 9.2 adds support for the following features available on OS X Mountain Lion:

iCloud: Store documents in iCloud and keep them automatically up to date across your Mac, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and the web. Changes made to a document on one device automatically appear on all your other devices. Requires iWork for iOS 1.6.1 or later installed on iOS device.
Dictation: Speak words, numbers, or sentences and watch them appear in your presentation, document, or spreadsheet.
The iWork apps are also enhanced to take advantage of the Retina display on new Mac hardware so presentations, documents, and spreadsheets appear sharper and more vibrant.
This update is recommended for users of iWork 9.0 and later. For detailed information on this update and individual application changes, please visit this site:

I have the 27"iMac.

I've been thinking about getting the macbook pro but kept thinking I'd wait til they came out with a
new version or at least until after this mountain lion update. I'm not sure now if I will get one or not.
Seems every time I buy something, the next day they come up with something I'd rather have. :roll:

Technology, can't keep up with it!

Still, I can't believe how long this update is taking. I thought about canceling it and trying it again.
I guess they are just very busy with everyone doing the downloads.

Oh for heaven sakes! Now it says 82 hours. I'm going to cancel it and try again.

No. As long as you are active, you can cash out whenever you want. If you want to leave it for a year and then cash out, you can.

Pizza Hut for example often have a 2 pizza with 2 topping choices each, for $10. Some times they offer
a very large speciality pizza (your choice of meat lovers, veggie lovers, etc) for $10.

I miss pizza hot and the cheesy crusts...
I live in a very small town, there's only 1 pizza place (one food place) and the medium pizzas are 9€ each, the burguers are 16€ with fries (no soda included)
The city is about 1hr far from here and the pizzas are kinda the same price, maybe cheaper but smaller, the burguers are way cheaper at mcdonalds or hesburguer... but the nearest pizza hut I know about it almost 5hrs by car :/

And maybe that's why no company is interested in my opinion... xD

Narlamma, I think you and I are in the same boat. I live in a rural area and there is no food delivery here.
It is also a little drive to get to pizza hut or any fast food place. I think that is just as well. If you eat fast
food all the time, you get fat. :lol: Make it yourself with less fattening ingredients.

It probably is America's fault. I think way back when McDonalds started, that was pretty much the start of all
these fast food chains. People saw how successful they were and followed suit.

Fast food is usually cheaper than a real restaurant with waiters. Also, you don't generally leave a tip at a fast
food joint. Plus, it is 'fast' food for those people on the run, in a hurry, don't want to get out of their vehicle.
But, I do think the fast food has a lot to do with the obesity problems and the heart disease.
