Should I work at an ACS Call Center supporting Mac Computers? More specifically, would that give me any career advantages such as if I later wanted to work at the Genius Bar or other (?) mac related jobs? [more inside]
I have 300gb of music, a house, several Mac laptops, a Mac G5, a router, two iphones, an ipad, and several external HDs where the music is stored. I would like to be able to play music anywhere in my house, control it wirelessly without the laptops and update libraries as well as all my devices with whatever I like anywhere in the house, without having to drag out the external USB HD to plug into various laptops like I do now. I'm willing to buy equipment to let this happen. Bonus if it lets me move movies onto a USB stick to plug into my nifty new tv. Details under the fold. [more inside]

I've replaced an aging iMac with 3 external drives hanging off of it with a Macbook Pro with the same 3 external drives hanging off of it.
The setup also includes a cable modem and a Time Capsule.
Right now the drives are in daisychained Firewire mode.
I'm looking for a way to connect the drives to my wifi network so I can eliminate the need to plug the first drive into the laptop? Staying with Firewire would be nice, but it's not a deal breaker.

Am resigned to buying new one but am in India/Far East for at least a year so if anyone knows a way to resurect a dead Mac - or even how to get the start up disk out, would be glad to hear. Thanks
While reading the iPod anniversary post
, I remembered that I had a 2nd-gen iPod tucked away. It only has a Firewire port. My Macbook is long retired. If I buy a Firewire to USB adapter, will I be able to use the iPod as a hard disk? (And get the music files off it?) Will it charge the iPod? What is the best adapter (or brand) to buy? [more inside]

I have a decent sized pear tree in my backyard...in Minnesota...so the growing season is far too short to yield edible fruit from the tree. Can I simply: 1) cut it down; 2) dig up the roots of the tree; 3) plant an apple tree in the same hole; 4) and start getting apples after a few years? Or is there a lot more to it that I don't know that I don't know?

I've heard/read quite a bit about how Steve Wozniak's designs for the Apple were unique and elegant (e.g., Revolution in the Valley, or here

What is the best anti-glare (matte) film for my unibody MacBook Pro? I hate the glossy screen, but it was the only option available when I was given the laptop. For a while I had an anti-glare film on it, but it got dirty and seemed like it was making the screen too fuzzy, so it was removed. I'm considering the Green Onions AG2
, the Moshi iVisor
, the Power Support
, or the RadTech Clear Cal
. They all seem to get fairly mediocre reviews. Today I came across the 3M Privacy Filter
, which apparently has a matte side, and better reviews, but the privacy filter would actually be a little annoying for my use. Suggestions? Other ideas? [more inside]

Cat chewed through my macbook power cord. I tried to fix it, but when I plugged it in it sparked a little bit and then went out.

Should I be worried? [more inside]
