Just got four separate email messages in the last hour that all look like the Sobig worm. Check the Symantec site for info on Sobig, which unlike Blaster only relies on people being willing to open email from strangers.
MacOSXHints points to a new firmware hack that claims to enable some hidden features of the Apple standard SuperDrive that ships in PowerBooks, including my 15″ 1 GHz model. Promised benefits: CD burning at 16x, DVD-R at 2x, and DVD-RW capability. It’s not really a “hack,” more a way to apply the OEM’s firmware upgrade to allow the drive to operate at its promised capacities.
I’m not sure I’m going to try it out. I kind of like my machine the way it is now and don’t have a burning need to double my media burning bandwidth. But I downloaded the upgrade (and the downgrade, just in case) anyway.
