Other World Computing has a new blog post explaining that the new 2011 iMacs now rely on a 7-wire SATA power connector and Apple proprietary firmware on the main hard drive to monitor temperature. Remove or replace it, and the iMac’s fans run at full speed all the time. Boo on Apple for preventing owners from replacing the drive with one from any third-party vendor. follow link
Avoid Naming Pear Note Files
If you create a lot of documents, coming up with a name for them can sometimes be a hassle. This is especially true now that search is becoming a more prevalent way to find documents. Pear Note provides a way to have the application automatically generate a filename so you can avoid this hassle. To use this:
- Open Saving under Pear Note's preferences.
- Select a default save location.
- Select a default save name template (Pear Note's help documents all the fields that can be automatically filled in).
- Check the box stating that Command-S saves without prompting.
- If you decide you want to name a particular note later, just use Save As... instead.

New 2011 iMac Hard Drive Cannot Be Removed or Replaced
Nothing else will clear up any misconceptions.
If you are to add value and publish stuff worth reading, you'll do your own research, not just act like some technology parrot.
Yes, you pointed to OWC's coverage, but then you decided that Apple was guilty of something without checking the facts and said "Boo on Apple for preventing owners from replacing the drive with one from any third party vendor."
That's where you stepped over a line. You also stepped over a line in the title of the article. It is completely false. The hard drive can be removed and it can be replaced.
You want your advertising revenue, but want to take short cuts in earning it.
And you completely failed to mention that the pain and anguish of opening up an iMac is offset by a good thing that Apple did. It's called Thunderbolt.
If it's not your story, don't publish it.
