MacBook Pro Superdrive Updates

Apple has released SuperDrive Firmware Update 2.1, available for download from the Apple Web site and through the Software Update system preference.

The update is aimed at specific MacBook Pro and MacBook models, including the 15-inch MacBook Pro Core Duo, 15-inch MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo, MacBook Pro Core Duo and MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo models. 17-inch MacBook Pro models seem exempt from the update at this time. “SuperDrive” is Apple’s terminology for optical drives that can burn DVD’s in addition to CDs.

The update itself “improves readability of certain CD media,” according to Apple. You can download and install the update; it will run, and if your Mac does not require this update, the installer will not run.

System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.4.4 or later.

Scientists prove we are not from here

Imagine the shock of growing up in a loving family with people you call “Mum” and “Dad” and then, suddenly, learning that you are actually adopted!

This same sense of shock came as scientists announced that the Sun, the Moon, our planet and its siblings, were not born into the familiar band of stars known as the Milky Way galaxy, but we actually belong to a strange formation with the unfamiliar name of the Sagittarius Dwarf galaxy!

…This grand turning is possibly the root cause for the discontinuation of the Mayan calendar (the most accurate on the planet) because the ‘read-point’ of the Pleiades star cluster, which many believe the calendar was based upon, can no longer be a constant as we begin to steer away from the earlier predictable movements.
