An early-adopter of an Apple iMac Core Duo reported ‘video-tearing’ issues with his new baby and set up a website to document his troubles. Fortunately, after doing some troubleshooting, he’s discovered that Apple sent out the new iMacs with two different versions of Mac OS X, one of which has the video issues and one which does not. While he still hasn’t resolved the issue to his satisfaction—the Genius Bar doesn’t have the latest builds of OS X?—it does appear that the issue, while frustrating, can be fixed in software.
Nice URL, though. Save that one for a rainy day, we suggest.
