Apple gives to Hurricane Sandy relief maybe not until it hurts, but generously. On the home front, Guy might not go to the Macworld Expo and is unable to find his Time Machine. Gaz’s Finder issues may have been solved by NOT turning off his Mac Mini. Guy’s hatred of analysts persists with every stupid they say, Samsung sells more Galaxy SIII’s than Apple sells iPhone 4S’s in a single quarter, and Foxconn may build a plant in the US…sheyeah right!

LaCie Slim SSD P’9223 Drive Review

On November 12, 2012, in Hard Drive, Macintosh, by Curt Blanchard

LaCie Slim SSD P’9223 Drive
Capacity: 120GB
Manufacturer: LaCie
MSRP: $149.00
Slim SSD P’9223 Drive

Sleek, speedy and gorgeous. No, not a gazelle—it’s the P’9223 Slim SSD external hard drive from LaCie.
