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
Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note
While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:
- Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
- Hit play.
- Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.

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.
