Mini displayport stops 802.11g from working? how? why?

Mini displayport to DVI adapter stops 802.11g from working? What?! We have a Macbook5,1 which is plugged into a 21" Dell LCD using the Monoprice mini displayport to DVI adapter.

My macbook is taking pictures of me, I want it to stop.

I downloaded some antitheft software for my macbook (takes a snapshot every minute, uploads to a "secure site") I'm pretty sure I found the software via metafilter but I can't come up with the link. I uninstalled the software but it still continues to apparently take the timed snapshot. Any ideas how I can disable this automated function? I've checked my automated tasks directory and haven't seen anything that looks right.

Am I being too uptight about my Macbook screen?

I have an appointment to see the Mac Geniuses tomorrow regarding my Macbook's screen, which looks rather dim. However, I'm not sure if I'm asking too much, since I know the older displays dim over time. I have some photos inside comparing my Macbook to an almost identical model that is one year older than mine. Could you take a look at these pics and let me know what my chances are of getting a repair? [more inside]

I can't click and drag on my MacBook!

I can't click and drag! I have a silver MacBook that I got in October. A few days ago, the trackpad stopped working and wouldn't let me click. I restarted, and it works for everything but clicking and dragging. (Does that make sense? I can't highlight text, or make a box to take a screen shot, or do a drag and drop, or anything that requires clicking and dragging.) I plugged in an external mouse to see if that would fix it, and it didn't. I did some googling and someone suggested Main Menu. I tried this and it didn't work. I still can't drag and drop! I would rather avoid the Genius Bar, though I am still under warranty. Can you help?

upgraded to snow leopard, or should that be slow leopard?

Help! I upgraded to snow leopard and now my internet is painfully slow. A quick google search shows i'm not the only one, but the only fix I can find (to do with the firewall) doesn't help me as I don't have firewall on. There seems to be no difference between Safari and Firefox. I'm seriously considering using time machine to get back to Leopard days. As an example, pre snow leopard, a speed test measured at 1.83mb/s download, 0.16mb/s upload and 41ms latency, speed test just now says 0.46mb/s, 0.24mb/s upload and 51ms latency. Therefore it looks like my upload speed has improved by my download has taken a dial up style kicking. As I don't upload anything very often, I don't care about any improvement in this area. Can anyone assist? I'm running a January 2009 macbook if that helps.
