    Revelation… like two sisters in sackcloth breathing fire and punishment on their enemies?

    …Or is that the wrong book…?

    By default, you can't. Check out BetterTouchTool, though. Should let you configure all of that stuff until your heart's content.

    As for Chrome, check out the Smooth Scrolling addons. They can help.

    Eh, doesn't really bother me. Hardware acceleration isn't that important in browsers, unless the CPU is woefully underpowered. Everything I use has enough grunt for HTML5 videos on youtube, so idc. :D

    Have you noticed the horrible bloated pig that is Flash for Mac yet? I don't think I've used Flash for months...

    I'm not, I use both Windows and Mac almost equally (on different computers, mind you). Though I've had my Macbook Pro for about 2 years.

    Performance for 90% the time will be the same, however 3D graphics-intensive things (ie. 3D games) will usually be better (to varying degrees) on the Windows side, due to the better graphics drivers and the ability for games to run in DIrectX. Mac doesn't have DirectX, so games are often ported to OpenGL/CL which comes with performance overheads.

    Browsing should be the same, provided you use a cross-platform browser, like Chrome, Opera or Firefox. That said, Firefox for Windows has hardware acceleration, so complex pages should scroll smoother.

    Yeah, it looks nice, that's for sure. I can't wait to see one of the retina Macbook Pros.

    The Macbook Trackpad in OSX is hands down the best trackpad on the planet. No competition. Under Windows, it's not quite as good.

    Do you mean you already have data on there? In which case you could delete it or just deal with it. There's not much difference, to be honest, apart from much faster graphics on the new one.

    By all means, you might need Windows for some things (yes, games. Although all of Valve's Source games run on Mac, if you're interested in those) - I'm not being a Mac zealot at all, I just hate it when people get a mac and only use Windows. They would be better off just getting a Windows system in the first place.

    If you want, you should still be able to return for a refund and grab the new one. Up to you and local laws.

    OSX is a great OS. I hope you're not thinking of using Win7 as the main OS...

    Sweeet. The new Ivy bridge version?

    If I had to get another laptop and money wasn't an issue, I'd waiting for them to release a 13" Retina Macbook Pro. That said, I'm thinking that by the end of the year, I might get two SSDs for my Macbook and RAID them.

TwigZone's moved to a better place, and so does this blog.

The blog's going to be left as is, as an archive, but no more.

Since I'll probably doing my blogging from Word 2013 from now on (that's right), well...

WordPress Web address: http://www.wordpress.com

Blogger Web address: http://www.blogger.com

TypePad Web address: http://www.typepad.com

Well, which one would work well for me? I think I'll also do my own research while you guys pour in the comments.

Just what's going on with Pokémon Groups these days?!

I know something strange is going on these days. People are quite the fickle one - sign up, then bolt away. I've seen a lot of deleted posts in threads... including my clubs. Whatever is happening there, it is going to harm everyone involved in the health of Pokémon Groups. It's one thing to not like a group. It's another thing to pretend that you're in a group for show. Nobody wants to be the person that just sits there, huh?...

...and when I tried to reinstall Windows, I noticed that I don't have any blank DVDs or USB sticks around, seeing as I'm living in my uncle's home for the week.

This was the time when I started to learn OS X deeply.

I've begun to actually love it.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

One thing I learned today is that even though the screens might be pre-calibrated, it's a good idea to recalibrate the monitor anyway.

Why?

Well... at least gamma isn't wonky and it's no longer baked warm. I think I'm now enjoying my display, even in OS X.
