|Apple/Mac/iOS related Tips/Reviews:
Per requests, I've added Apple Firmware Restore CD D/L pages and PPC Mac Apple Hardware Test CDs info (downloadable CD images) to the Basics/How-To/Tips page.
(Knock on wood so far I've never had to use any Firmware restore CDs but for anyone with an interrupted update/failure it's worth a try before taking the mac into an apple store/repair center.)
|Updated Apple Support/How-To/Troubleshooting Articles:
Also see our page of Tips, Troubleshooting & How-To Guides for Mac/OS X/iOS Users.
Listing/links of Updates, DIY mod/upgrade articles, Tips and more you may have missed.
