New Powerbook Problems & Other Notes

I had quietly gone and acquired the new Powerbook 15, mostly because of faster processor and better screen resolution that gives me about 26% more screen space. Also the other PB was 2 years old, which is an eternity in computer life. (Anyone interested in buying a PB 15 1.25 GHz, get in touch!) I have upgraded the memory to 1.5 GB, but ever since I did that, well some unusual problems have cropped up. I lose airport connectivity at least once a day. And I am not the only one. Others including iBook owners are having these problems as well. Does anyone have a fix for this? I have recently acquired Nokia N90, and was wondering if anyone knew of iSync hacks for the N90.

As an aside, has anyone else noticed that the continuing success of Apple is translating into more and more hardware problems. Madhu wrote in the other day pointing to mad problems with the G5. Nano, and before that the iMac G5 meltdowns. I may love like mad, but I love my dollars more, and if I have to experience the same trials and tribulations as the other guys, why am I really paying the premium.

But on a more personal note – currently closing two stories for Business 2.0, so my attention is completely focussed on that. So if I have not replied to your emails or called you back, its not personal. Its crunch time around the office. This has been particularly busy week, and now I have about five 3/4th finished posts. A follow-up to my bandwidth-merger post, the analysis of the SBC+T and MCI+VZ merger, comparison of EVDO and HSDPA and which card you should buy for your laptop, future of RSS and well, one of why I love Amazon! Perhaps given the paucity of time, readers want to play editors and prioritize?
