.Mac has finally announced an increased its storage space to 250MB. But looking closer it is a combined storage increase of the .Mac mail plus idisk storage. So pulling up my iDisk discovered that the increase was at 125MB. Also I learned on Apples site is that there is an increase in the size of attachments to 10MB instead of 3MB. It is a long awaited increase. While many other have increased much more. We can only hope that Tiger will utilize these increases. If you want to get more information please go to Mac.com.

BookEndz and 23" Cinema Display Issues

23-inch Apple Cinema DisplayI have a 2-year old PowerBook G4/800MHz and a BookEndz docking station. I’ve been very happy with this set up (after learning that the connctions must be made very tight). I just bought a 23″ Cinema Display and it is gorgeous when connected directly to the PowerBook.
When the display is connected through the dock, it appears that there’s a problem with the signal (e.g., noise or strength) and I have many pixels that are “bad,” e.g., streaks of scintillating red. I called BookEndz and they are aware of the problem but they “can’t do anything about it.” It appears that the same problem occurs when a DVI extension cable is used. That is, inserting any intermediate connection causes problems.
Is there a solution other than tolerance of the bad pixels?
Could using it this way damage anything?
