Time for a Fetch Refresh?

In the Fetch FTP client, if you see a time stamp like "As of 6/19/10 2:29 PM" above the file list, that means that Fetch is re-using a file list it downloaded earlier. Click the swooshing-arrow refresh button (located beside the time stamp) to refresh the list.

iBook Repair Program Extended

Send Article to a Friend

iBook Repair Program Extended -- Apple has broadened its iBook Logic Board Repair program to include more models of the laptop (see "Apple Announces Replacements for Some iBook Logic Boards" in TidBITS-715). The new range of affected units were manufactured between May 2001 and October 2003, with serial numbers ranging from UV117XXXXXX to UV342XXXXXX. Problematic iBooks suffer from one or more of the following symptoms on either the built-in LCD or attached external display: scrambled or distorted video; appearance of unexpected lines on the screen; intermittent video image; video freeze; or the computer starts up to a blank screen. Apple is providing repairs (including shipping costs) for free; see the FAQ page at Apple's site for more information. [JLC]
