  1. Apple is a great example of a company that cares about their customers. Good job Steve! 😀

  2. Much better results than with the 10.5.3 update–I was having flashbacks to the keyboard problems that were plaguing me back in the early Leopard days! The cursor jumped around and the keyboard became unresponsive but thankfully it hasn’t reoccured since…well done, Apple!
