Super annoying. Interestingly, my 2010 MBP 17″ also had exactly the same thing with the same key.

I had previously covered how my early MBP Retina (early 2013) had a squeaky command button here. Since the command buttons (⌘) and the space bar have a metal stabilization bar built-in, these keys tend to squeak. After investigating quite extensively, I could not find a good information source on how to get rid of […]
I have been using Apple’s Thunderbolt Gigabit Ethernet adapter for about 10 months now with my 15″ Retina (Early 2013), and I have had some interesting experiences. The Thunderbolt Gigabit adapter was buggy with Mountain Lion, but is equally buggy with Mavericks. When the adapter is used, these are typical: Machine frequently does not wake […]
I have an early 2013 Retina 15″ with a SanDisk (SD256E) SSD, also have a SanDisk Extreme, and a SSDNow V300. In all frankness, I cannot tell the difference between the three in terms of speed. They are all pretty fast. BOOTNOTE: Mavericks is booting up slower on all of my machines, all on SSDs, and I believe […]
I have just successfully patched (unlocked) my Intel Haswell motherboard’s (DH87MC) UEFI BIOS using a RaspberryPi Model B as an SPI programmer. Posting how I did here for other people who may have no option but to go down this path. Warning, this is not for the faint hearted, or people who have no experience in […]
I make quite a bit presentations with my Retina 15″, and I noticed that if I am using Keynote, or any other application that changes the graphics from the integrated to the discrete, resolution is set in that particular video solution’s set-up. As an example, I plug in an older projector at 600×800 resolution through […]
I appreciate the commentary that I received in response to my list of 10 things that I dislike about my new Retina. I’d hate to put more fuel into the fire, but I figured some of this feedback needs clarification: I spent three of the last four weeks away from home on three different continents. […]
Installed as Server, but also will work the same for 10.8.4, without the server. UPDATE: Now running 10.9 Server. I have been building Hackintosh boxes for several years now. I originally favored microATX format. After 4 different hacks, and being a Mac user since the early days, I came to the conclusion that most of the […]
MacBook “Pro” Retina impressions. (Probably the last Mac I will ever buy after being a loyal customer for three decades.) Dude, where is my gigabit ethernet port? Where do I insert my CD? Why do some media show up in quarter size in full screen? Oh, that’s retina. Doh! Updating a knowledge base document named “Avoiding […]
